“You too have a misconception of what AA is to it’s members,or at least to me. Alcoholic Anonymous is a way of life. Drinking is but a symptom of our disease….”

[You may also notice some comments in this thread directed at "cabledude," (aka, JD; aka Mondotuna; aka Jerry) asking him to not be so snarky. He seems to have erased his comments, deleted his account and slinked into his troll hole. Don't worry...we've got screen shots, and we'll share his finest comments soon.]
Our friend, John, writes the My Word Like Fire blog. He’s thinks we’re going to Hell, but he’s a good guy. I don’t often agree with what him or the readers of his blog, but this quote below seems to make a lot of sense:
“Wendy, You are so right. Satan is cunning, baffling and powerful. This is my second time commenting as an ex-AA member like yourself. Once I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and was re-born in the Spirit, I almost immediately could not attend AA meetings. The Lord revealed to me that I was in an extremely dangerous place…
One last note on the cunningness of Satan. I was in a local Christian book store and checked out the Recovery Bible – New Living Translation, just for the heck of it. I was shocked; Satan has slithered into that book! It references the twelve steps exactly as in AA with the “god of your understanding” and “higher power”. It also recommends AA. Obviously there is a collaboration between AA and the publishers of that Pantheistic “b”ible (small “b”. The word of Satan masquerading as the Word of God! He is the great deceiver and forger!”

I think we should put Gail and Dick B. in a ring for a winner-take-all cage match.
