STUART (CBS12) -- An unregistered sex offender dumped off at a local Walmart by a local sober home has turned himself in to the Martin County Sheriff's Office.

Prohibition Comes to an End and the cult commonly called Alcoholics Anonymous is incubated in church basements.....

Prohibition Comes to an End

The high price of bootleg liquor meant that the nation’s working class and poor were far more restricted during Prohibition than middle or upper class Americans. Even as costs for law enforcement, jails and prisons spiraled upward, support for Prohibition was waning by the end of the 1920s. In addition, fundamentalist and nativist forces had gained more control over the temperance movement, alienating its more moderate members.

Prayers to GOD for the Spiritual non-religious Alcoholics Anonymous Step meetings. Direct from the AA Bible called the Big Book (BB)



God, Creative Intelligence, Universal Mind, Spirit of Nature or Spirit of the Universe my name is ______, And I'm a real alcoholic ... and I need your help today.
(pg.. 10-2, 46, & Chp. 3 BB)

2nd STEP

God, I'm standing at the turning point right now. Give me your protection and care as I abandon myself to you and give up my old ways and my old ideas just for today.
(p. 59 BB)

3rd STEP

Primary Purpose and the Special-Purpose Groups in AA from the A.A. Grapevine, Inc., October 1977 (the non-conference approved "literature" of Alcoholics Anonymous)

Many members feel that no AA group is special and, therefore, that no group should be labeled as such or even give the impression that it is "special." However, the fact is that such groups do exist - in the United States and Canada, at least. There are women's groups, stag groups, young people's groups, and groups for priests, doctors, lawyers, and homosexual members. These groups feel that the "labels" serve the purpose of attraction (double identification) and are not intended to imply exclusion of other alcoholics.

Al-anon and Alateen the gateway cult to Alcoholics Anonymous and why it breaks up families unless you become full fledged AA members....

I'm sure everyone has seen them, the wonderful AA couple that go to meetings together. It usually doesn't start out that way, it just evolves into being that way because of the gateway cults of Al-Anon and Alateen that talk the prospects into being alcoholics through repetitious chanting. When a prospect is identified in 12 Step the coven does everything to "find out all about" them and goes to the spouse and children of their target and tell them it is a family disease and they must go to Al-Anon or Alateen to "help" and understand the made up disease they are peddling.

Surviving Straight Inc ® - When Alcoholics Anonymous "Principles" are used on Children...

Straight, Inc. (1976-1993) publicly claimed to rehabilitate teenage drug users by using tough love and Alcoholics Anonymous principles. Straight, Inc. provided NO professional counseling: Straight, Inc.'s "treatment model" relied exclusively on "positive peer pressure" from unprofessional staff (program graduates) and from the teenage clients. Straight, Inc. claimed to have an astronomically high success rate and was supported by both the Reagan and Bush administrations. However, Straight, Inc. did not publicly reveal what many survivors will tell you. The REAL Straight, Inc.

When confessing sins and asking for forgiveness goes wrong at Word of Life Church in Mohawk Valley, New Hartford, NY - 19 year old dies as a result Sunday Oct 11, 2015

Another "counseling session" in a Church discussing the "Spiritual State" ends in the death of Lucas Leonard and seriously injures his younger brother Christopher. While this does not appear to have any direct ties to Alcoholics Anonymous, it does have to do with Spirituality (core tenet of AA) and is called a "Counseling Session" which is the new codeword lately for AA meetings....

"Danger Thin Ice!" and a history of the blogs critical of Alcoholics Anonymous

While perusing through http://www.dangerthinice.org/aa.htm I noticed that many of the blogs critical about AA have ceased to exist. I remember most of them, but they have since gone by the wayside. One that is still available is Triple A Comix and the adventures of Mildew Man.

How many of the other sites do you remember that are now dormant or non existent?

'GRESHAM'S LAW & ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS" from "24 Magazine" July 1976 - The three types of AA members. Which ones have you come across?


There are three ways to work the program of Alcoholics Anonymous. (1) The strong, original way, proved powerfully and reliably effective over forty years. (2) A medium way - not so strong, not so safe, not so sure, not so good, but still effective. And (3) a weak way, which turns out to be really no way at all but literally a heresy, a false teaching, a twisting corruption of what the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous clearly stated the program to be.
