Should the boxer Tony Bellow be sanctioned for asking Nathan Cleverly (the WBO light heavyweight Champion of 2010) if he still goes to Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings?


I guess it is an insult to ask if you have been to an AA meeting lately. Have they read the Alcoholics Anonymous literature claiming that it is alright to be an AA member?

What is Sponsorship in Alcoholics Anonymous? What makes a person in AA a Sponsor? What is the difference between a Sponsor and a friend in AA?

Joanne and Patrick Fry have been served with a wrongful death lawsuit of Karla Brada along with Alcoholics Anonymous World Services, Inc. and the Santa Clarita Intergroup of AA. The lawsuit claims that the couple acted as sponsors to Karla Brada and the man convicted of her murder Eric Allen Earle, The Frys have gone to the newspapers claiming that they were not sponsors, just friends in AA. How do you determine if someone is a Sponsor or not?

The other day I opened an old file folder full of miscellaneous items and took out a copy of a newspaper article from the Sunday Chronicle dated July 28, 1935. I have no idea where this article came from, but I know it had been in that file for decades. I finally unfolded it and read it for the first time.

Welcome to the Horay for Jesus Orange Papers Forum of Jim Battle. Just remember that if you say anything about not liking it, the rabid followers will call you a Lynch Mob. NOW I'M PRACTICING FREE SPEECH!

Because of free speech I can voice my opinion on the Frank Buchman Oxford Group clone that is trying to take over the Orange Papers Forum, especially the ones that are running around piddling all over every thread claiming that if people disagree with turning this forum into a clone of the group that started AA they belong to a "Lynch Mob" in a very derogatory manner.

World Conference On Moral Rearmament (1950) - You don't need a church if you can use the OPF as a podium.

Stepper Cult Joke- When the Orange Papers Forum gets taken over by people that want "God" to be the answer to addictions, which is what AA is all about. Now that is hilarious.

Hats off to the assholes that made it this way. You are good little secret steppers and an especially loud round of applause to the sock puppets of http://nadaytona.org who helped to make this happen because instead of looking at the big picture, they wanted to shame churches and didn't care if the person wanting to do it was bashing every other free alternative they were pushing for one involving the God of his choosing.

Smash Comics (1939) "ALL RIGHT! I'M READY TO TAKE YOU ALL ON! I'LL TEACH YOU NOT TO DRINK DANGEROUS STUFF!

I am having trouble identifying the exact issue and story associated with this comic. In 1939 SMASH COMICS had 5 issues (http://www.aibq.com/smash1.php) however, I can find no database that gives me the actual insides of that particular comic book. I would like to find out what superhero or crimefighter is portrayed in this picture.

“AA” Recovery Groups—Spirituality for the Non-Religious, Hope for the Church?

Consisting of the usual AA propaganda of Spiritual, not Religious, the author does explain the path she will be following over the next few weeks with her column.

Simply, but smilingly, he said, "I've got religion." - Big Book "Bill's Story" , p.9

"So that was it -- last summer an alcoholic crackpot; now, I suspected, a little cracked about religion. " - BB Bill's Story, p.9

"We, who have traveled this dubious path, beg you to lay aside prejudice, even against organized religion." - BB We Agnostics, p.49

" Though we have no religious connection, we may still do well to talk with someone ordained by an established religion." - BB Into Action, p.74

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Alcoholics Anonymous can help people, young and old, recover from drinking problems, but young adults seem to benefit mainly - and only - from certain aspects of the program, according to a small U.S. study.

The results may help to better tailor AA for a new generation, researchers say, and help young adults feel more comfortable in the heart of the program, the group meetings.

3rd Circuit Court upholds conviction of Timothy McGee for insider trading information he got at AA despite he had no "Fiduciary Duty" to be upheld because of AA and AA Clubhouse rules.

I apologize in advance for the legal talk this article involves. I believe that it is a US 3rd Circuit Court action that nullifies the "confidentiality" clause that AA and its Clubhouses try to claim as reasons that they can not be held accountable for the information they gather at AA meetings that they use for personal gain.
