Prelim information is coming in of an upcoming film release about a sister cult

Word has been recieved that hidden cam footage of Mitt Romney in his full mormon/masonic regalia doing secret rituals inside a secretive LDS temple is about to be released with several national news organizations taking interest.

I have been aware of the existance of this film for months, and the owner continued to promise an October surprise. Apparently a deal with Bill Mahar went bad and this thing is about to be national.

If only it could have been an AA faith thing.

Bill W & Playboy Magazine

Here's a commentary on Alcoholics Anonymous by psychiatrist and author M. Scott Peck, author of "The Road Less Traveled: A New Psychology of Love, Traditional Values and Spiritual Growth" (1978).

Peck was interviewed by Playboy in March, 1991.

Playboy: You've said that the success of "The Road Less Traveled" is connected to the proliferation of groups such as A.A. Why are A.A. and its offshoots so popular?

NA Zombie

I savor the moment and every day after when the light bulb lit up in my brain and illuminated NA for what it is. At around the 10 month mark of indoctrination I began to become mentally ill like a rash on my body would warn me of a food allergy the same was happening to my mind. My psyche was warning me that it did not like being brainwashed. I was breaking down. I would dread going to meetings knowing I would be leaving there feeling worse then when I came in.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA): AA History

Correcting A.A. History

Some Published Information is Not Accurate

The article below was written by nationally recognized historian and oft-quoted Alcoholics Anonymous archivist Mitchell K.

Before continuing on with this series of articles about AA History we would like to take this brief opportunity to respond to a question asked by many of the readers. In fact, it was the most prevalent question submitted to this writer.

Steppers Just Get Dumber

http://www.thefix.com/content/how-sober-meditation-10030

"I don’t remember the first thing he said but I know the first thing I heard: that the type of mantra-based meditation he taught—Vedic Meditation—stopped the aging process. As I began to listen to a lecture that I’d planned on tuning out, I was shocked to discover that everything he mentioned intrigued me just as much as the notion of being able to stay looking young without surgical measures".

Stay young forever for only a weeks salary.

Bill Wilson a Republican who lived off A Bailout

I read in one of the bios that Bill Wilson was a staunch republican but all the while living in a house that benefited from Roosevelts mortgage deferment. They eventually lost the house. In his drunken stupors he would rant against Roosevelt and the New Deal

If some one could find reference to this on the Orange papers I would appreciate this.

The Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Evangelist - "Don't start out as an evangelist or reformer. " BB p.89, Working With Others

The Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Evangelist are those members who train to be a prospect hunter to bring back targeted victims for indoctrination into the Bill Wilson faith. All AA members are trained at hunting the elusive prospect for Alcoholics Anonymous, but not all become a full fledged prospect hunter, some just can't be that devious and underhanded.

A word from Anonpress and a WARNING that if you are not in the USA, AAWS may bring a lawsuit against you for downloading portions of the "Big Book"

Sorry for the hassle but we have to check...

AA World Service claims a copyright on the text of Alcoholics Anonymous in all locations outside The United States. At the request of AAWS we are asking users to confirm that they are in The USA and accept this agreement:

Fighting Quackery: Tips for Activists

Stephen Barrett, M.D.

Many people concerned about quackery wonder what they can do about it. The crucial first step is to overcome any negative feelings about becoming involved. So before discussing techniques, let's look at the concerns faced by would-be activists.

The Fear of Libel

$100M per year for bad coffee and terrible advice

Ever wondered just how much money goes into all the AA baskets each year?

The latest figures from GSO (2011) show that in the USA and Canada there were 1,384,699 members attending an average of 2.6 meetings per week and one would assume (since alcohol is cunning, baffling and powerful and doesn't take vacations) attending 52 weeks a year. This means that over the course of a year the number of butts on seats at AA meetings would be:

1,384,699 AA members x 2.6 meetings/week x 52 weeks/year = 187,211,305 butts on seats at AA meetings in the USA & Canada in 2011.

GSO General Manager says that there is no hope for any alcoholic without AA

GSO General Manager, Phyllis Halliday, stated the following when addressing A.A.'s 2011 European Service Meeting in Frankfurt, Germany:

"One thing is certain, there would be no hope for any alcoholic anywhere if the collective pulse of this lifesaving spiritual fellowship were not lighting the way with love and trust."

Come on Boniface, let's make it a bakers dozen. We can slip in the 13th Step and no one will even realize


Using purely scientific means, the Spiritualist Bill Wilson and other members of his coven attempt to contact Boniface, the ghost writer of the "Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions" and slip in the 13th Step at the Stepping Stones "Spook Room".... Unfortunately the 13th Step instructions were not formalized until after the publishing of the second manifesto of the cult commonly called the 12&12.

Orange Pickles

I have not read the book below, but I am interested in hearing anyone's thoughts on the subject matter. Specifically, the 12 steps are religious-based and are not "treatment" in any way. Can anybody really "connect the dots", in a scientific sense, between the "disease" of alcoholism and the 12 steps. The 12 steps are faith-based right?
