A Roster of Those Said to Be Opposed to A.A.

We certainly don't endorse this list or the views of those included in the list. But many in recovery fellowships or seeking recovery by the power of God in A.A. and elsewhere or standing tall as Christians in recovery wherever they find themselves in the recovery arena don't realize just how widespread is the attack on A.A. these days. Assuming the list is correct, it establishes that this variety of antognists includes atheists, Wilson critics, former AAs, cult-chasers, "Christian" critics, those who have failed to find recovery anywhere, and others.

At times, we have not only found A.A. lambasted, but found our own sites and names included in the attacks. Occasionally we have answered the comments. Sometimes we have found our historical research applauded. Sometimes we have been inclined to ignore the nasty remarks But we believed that "Stinkin Thinkin"--a site whose title perhaps epitomizes its approach--has assembled the list below, indicating those listed are supportive of the negative approaches. And here they are--a lengthy list of those who have beefs against A.A. whether their remarks are supported, supportable, or without support:
