Putting the ‘Nut’ into Nutley

Looks like an AA got hold of the editorial section of the Nutley paper, and is serving up a heaping helping of rigorous honesty™. In defending the assclowns from AA who are causing havoc in the neighborhood, this AApologist explains that what they are seeing isn’t what they are seeing; and what happens in AA doesn’t happen in AA:

“Contrary to what some have reported regarding Alcoholics Anonymous at Holy Lutheran Church in Nutley, AA is neither a rehabilitation program nor a condition for parole.

According to its website, AA “is a voluntary, worldwide fellowship of men and women from all walks of life who meet together to attain and maintain sobriety. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking.”

Obviously, we don’t condone his actions, but I do give him credit for his strategy. I mean, if you are deluded, and your goal is to snipe off a pedophile, randomly spraying bullets into a crowd of AAs is like shooting fish in a barrel.

There was no disagreement between the judge, prosecutors or the defense attorney as to whether or not this guy is mentally ill. I doubt anyone reading the facts of the case would disagree. He was, after all, receiving messages directly from God, and believed that he was on a divine mission at the time of his arrest. I doubt any reasonable person, understanding the facts of the case, would disagree with the fact that this guy is deluded, and that he needs psychological help. Continue reading Godpuppetry
