In this age of so many different religions and paths it really annoys me how AA has the word "god" referenced in their procedure to overcome alcoholism. I mean does this program not work for people who do not believe in God? Are they doomed for that reason?
I think there should be a re-write to the twelve step program due to the facts that so many people are forced to go to those meetings for justified reasons, such as DUI and so on. But to have to sit there and be apart of a "religious" program which could be against their beliefs is just insane.
You would think that the powers that be would step up and do something seeing they all complain about prayer in school and reference in politics about religion, well come on why are the little people paying again?
There is a better way and I believe that those who choose to step up and fix the system or program will realize that not only would a different program be beneficial to the system it would also create a much more positive environment.
I thought there were laws against people forcing others to"practice" a specific religion which they are not part of?
Also, is it not the "God" who is sitting at the last supper drinking wine? Is that not stating that it is allowed?
So in my opinion the program should be reworked to be politically
