IN SIMPLE TERMS THE FOLLOWING STEPS ARE THE FAKE AA THAT IS COMMONLY BELIEVED AND PROFESSED BY THOSE WHO HAVE NOT ACTUALLY READ THE LITERATURE. The writer does not agree with the fake steps of AA and wishes to expose them as being FAKE.
DISCLAIMER: These 13 steps are DOGMA AND SATIRE. They are what I have seen in AA over and over. This article does not apply to nor is it written of the true and miraculous program of fellowship called AA with it's actual 12 steps.
When sick alcoholics use their spiritual deficit to create rules and regulations based in character defects the false AA then appears. These false rules geared in and around the people of AA become a false doctrine to worship. False doctrines occur in any group of humans who subconsciously relish religious error and mistake spirituality for legalism. Why would we of AA be any different than typical religion? AA is a religion in the true sense of the word, we work the program “religiously”. So of course we have dogma and error in the rooms. This article is to expose that error.
Fake responsibility pledge #A
A. Never ever do anything but whitewash AA as a perfect program. Any constructive criticism no matter how true or rampant the error in AA is. Correcting AA is forbidden. Anyone who points out common misconceptions in AA will be shunned as holding intense resentment and belittled with name-calling and will surely relapse.
