Outrageous…I say..mixing religion and courts. Forcing people to AA religious type meetings.
Here is what I did and I encourage and request you do the same.
I called the White house hotline and told them I wanted to make a comment to a person on staff. I said I wanted this comment to go to President Obama. I called last week and told them how I was outraged that on our White House website blog it was promoting alcoholics anonymous meetings. http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2013/05/10/alcoholics-anonymous-original-twelve-step-recovery-program
She was kind an patient and listened to my request. I was polite and passionate and very nice but firm in my tone.
Then I called the ALCU in NYC and they said to call my local chapter, which I did.

Now imagine if each person here picks up the phone and makes these same calls.
Just explain the dangers going on and mostly hit on the topic that AA is so religious and people are being sent there and the courts are mandating violent and sex offenders and woman are being murdered and raped . Make sure you include a few top news stories to back this up. Stay focused on the religious aspect for the ACLU’s mission.
Some facts. God, him or HP s mentioned over 500 times in the first 164 pages of the Big Book.
DO I have any takers? Thanks to anyone who takes some action. It made me feel great and I will follow up with the ACLU and report on the progress.
