AS BILL SEES IT #essentialsofrecovery

 Page 34 ~

“Not Allied with Any Sect…”

“While A.A. has restored thousands of poor Christians to their churches, and has made believers out of atheists and agnostics, it has also made good A.A.’s out of those belonging to the Buddhist, Islamic, and Jewish faiths. For example, we question very much whether our Buddhist members in Japan would ever have joined this Society had A.A. officially stamped itself a strictly Christian movement.

“You can easily convince yourself of this by imagining that A.A. started among the Buddhists and that they then told you you couldn’t join them unless you become a Buddhist, too. If you were a Christian alcoholic under these circumstances, you might well turn your face to the wall and die.”
