"My alcoholic father sexually abused me when I was young, and I never dealt with the thoughts and feelings from that trauma. When I came to Al-Anon at age 52, my resentment and anger were deep-seated. As I painfully worked the Steps and took my Fourth Step inventory, my buried pain and anger started to surface. I shared these thoughts and feelings in my Fifth Step with my sponsor. Through this process I came to feel forgiven for the many wrongs I had committed, including judgement of my father".
Hope for Today, published by Al-Anon Family Group Headquarters, Inc., page 114.
Wouldn't such a brainwashed 12 Step Enthusiast be the perfect victim for sexual predators? They could rape her and when they are done she can get with her sponsor and learn about her wrongs and not judge.
Good thing she only got to Alanon at the age of 52 is all I can say.
And then there is this nonsense:
"I will realize that, even in doing nothing about my problems, I am actively practicing the Al-Anon idea."
One Day at a Time in Al-Anon, p. 143
Lmao! These teachings are insane, and these are in the Alanon readings.
