Recovery Industry members are increasingly taking to the internet in attempts to derail and protect the revenue stream that has been built by the cults that Bill Wilson built. Chick-fil-A, an outwardly Spiritual and Religious company has been accused of the same thing. The recovery Industry members that attempt to do this are classified as:
2. Special Pleader Stepper – The hidden agenda, 2nd most dangerous
They attend AA meetings because they have a stake in making sure that AA survives. They go, not to help the group to solve the problem of Alcoholism, but to protect their interests. Discussion is a platform from which they can air their rights and wishes. They are there to protect special interests (such as a Sober House or Rehab) and are willing to fight for a larger flow of customers. Often teams up with the Aggressive Stepper.

Chick-fil-A has been discussed before on the Orange Papers because it has been identified as a company with a high "Spiritual Capital" score and it was compared to AA, see "The Spiritual Capital of Alcoholics Anonymous" http://orange-papers.org/forum/node/444 . If these allegations are true, both Chick-fil-A and Alcoholics Anonymous have just lost their standings in "Spiritual Capital."
Did Chick-fil-A Pretend to Be a Teenage Girl on Facebook?
by Casey Chan
Chick-fil-A, home of chicken-loving bigots, is in the middle of a PR nightmare. After Chick-fil-A's COO admitted to being anti-gay, the Jim Henson Company (bless their heart) pulled their toys from Chick-fil-A's kids meals. Only Chick-fil-A claimed the toys were pulled because of a "possible safety issue". That, of course, is a complete lie. A lie that the company may be propagating with fake Facebook accounts of Chick-fil-a sympathists.
Yep, Chick-fil-A is still stuck in its own reality and is doubling down on its lie. Instead of owning up to the fact that The Jim Henson Company stopped doing business with them because they're overrun with bigots, the chicken sandwich company appears to have made fake Facebook accounts to defend its honor on the social network. How do we know the accounts are fake? Just check out this back and forth on Chick-fil-A's Facebook page between real, breathing people and "Abby Farle", a Facebook account that was made 8 hours ago by a chicken PR flack with a stock image of a teenage girl as her profile
It's a dirty, awful trick that is completely embarrassing and just shows how sleazy a company backed up against a wall can be. Especially a company that doesn't believe in treating all humans equally. Of course, there's a chance that this could all be a stunt to shame Chick-fil-A—or an overzealous supporter—but that company hardly needs more shaming. Chick-fil-A is being rightfully pummeled to the ground by anyone who believes in equality, its delicious chicken sandwiches be damned. [Happy Place]
Update: Chick-fil-A has denied that it has created fake Facebook accounts to defend itself. In a statement to BuzzFeed, spokeswoman Tiffany Greenway said:
"We have seen this and it is not true. Chick-Fil-A has not created a separate or a false Facebook account. We don't know who created it."
