Attracting with Promotion in AA

The Queensland diocese of AA has put a unique spin on the AA tradition of “attraction, not promotion”, by offering their spiritual wares in a ‘public education seminar’:

Local AA groups came together last year to form a district group, and have organised a public meeting next month to educate the wider community on services available to those suffering from alcoholism.

No doubt if asked, these AAs would come with a ridiculous rationalization as to how this is not promotion. Something akin to “it’s spiritual, not religious”.

I feel sad for those with a real problem who think they are going their to get an education on alcoholism and treatment options, and will instead be suckered into a meeting by a bunch of Moonie-like drones spouting nothing but AA dogma.
