Subject:  clarifying on AA at church
Message:  Hello,
With regard to the recent response that one is NOT permitted attend an AA or GA meeting in a church, this is a different answer than appeared on the board recently.

Is this just a difference of opinion between brothers?

Here it is:
Reply: A cross is not the problem. People go to St. This or That Hospital with crosses in the room and they pray. We shouldn't go to churches. NA meetings, AA meetings and so on are usually in churches. If they're in another room, which they almost always are, it's OK. If it is in a religious Jewish neighborhood, don't use the main entrance. The "twelve Steps" do not specify any specific religion, and are basics of faith in Judaism as well as in almost all other religions.

Reply:  if it's in another room, it's ok. Thanks!
