Spouting hatred under the guise of religion.
Tomorrow I will post what I had composed for today....but I feel compelled to write this first. When I checked out my blog this morning I had 103 comments from a man named Patrick who has taken it as his right to vilify Alcoholics Anonymous.
Yes, that's not a typo....there were 103 comments from this mad man. He is truly a disgrace to the airwaves and I will give you just a bit of his rhetoric so that you can judge for yourself:
I imagine 12 STEPPERS have sold their souls to the devil. Fortunately, I was saved through the power of Jesus Christ, but for many years had been exposed to the
evil “satanic cult” (Alcoholics Anonymous)
In Matthew 7:13-14 Jesus warned, Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
Jesus likewise warned in Luke 13:24, Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able.
I, PATRICK, AM THE TRUTH & BEAUTY THAT SURROUNDS THE LORD.
This is the sort of drivel that he spews, along with allusions to some of us being the anti-christ, etc., etc., ad nauseum. We, in AA, know that there are many ways to get sober and we don't defile those who go another way.
Patrick is the epitome of the angry, crazed person who hides behind religion and who has nothing better than to post 103 crazed comments. It is because of him that I will now have to moderate my comments. I apologize to you regulars. You know how much I enjoy your comments and I will continue to show them.
Tomorrow is another day, but Patrick won't be part of it.
