14. What I resent is that it all these characterizations are directed at the agnostic / atheist

and this in a program that claims to be not religious. If it were directed at alcoholics in general, or even people in general, that would be different. As an agnostic / atheist, I resent being singled out as having these characteristics. And no similar chapter "To The Christian" or "To The Religious". And yes, I don't buy the "God Stuff" and it does NOT mean "I can't quite step ashore."


that chapter you are quoting made me see myself way too much for comfort

"Handicapped By Obstinacy" (p. 48), yes I was
"prejudiced" and "unreasoning prejudice" (p. 48) was I prejudiced?? i had to ask
...
"We Couldn't Quite Step Ashore" (p. 53), nope, couldn't buy that "God Stuff'
...

you may not have these issues in your life and more power to you. I had most of these and more, so again I was desperate enough to lay it aside and get on with the action of cleaning up my life.
