And once we have finished arguing about Step 1 and once again established that it is the first lying scaremongering doctrine of the lying scaremongering predator cult of Alcoholics Anonymous, lets move on to the first Chapter of 'More Revealed' the chapter entitled 'In the Beginning'
To quote the relevant extract:-
In 1939, shortly after its founding, Alcoholics Anonymous was in debt and its membership broke. Hope for the organization’s financial stability was pinned to the sale of their newly-published book; “Alcoholics Anonymous.” A small group of early AA members, including cofounder Bill Wilson, were discussing what to do. Morgan, a new member, had an idea. He had connections in the media from his days as an advertising man. He could arrange for an interview on a popular nationwide radio program. As the AA literature tells it,
“[S]omebody sounded a note of caution: What if the lately released asylum inmate Morgan should be drunk the day of the broadcast! Hard experience told us this was a real possibility. How could such a calamity be averted?
Very gently we suggested to a resentful Morgan that he would have to be locked up somewhere until the night of the broadcast. It took all of salesman Henry’s wiles to put this one over, but he did. How and where we would lock him up was the only remaining question. Henry, with full faith now restored, solemnly declared that ‘God would provide.’ …Grumbling loudly, Morgan was conducted into captivity. For several days we took turns staying with him right around the clock, never letting him get out of our sight …
Sighs of relief went up in every New York member’s home when Morgan’s voice was heard. He had hit the deadline without getting drunk. It was a heart-stirring three minutes.”
Morgan told a tale of alcoholic ruin and of the recovery he and others had found in AA.
What went on there? The group was so afraid Morgan would go on a binge, they locked him up so he could go on the air to tell how they helped him recover from his drinking problem. If hard experience told them he was likely to get drunk, how good was his “recovery”? If they didn’t have faith in his sobriety, how much faith did they have in their program?"
So what actually did go on there? To start the argument I would like to suggest that this is just another example of the stepper cult lying on a large scale. Anyone like to tell me I am wrong and how they came to their assumption?
