Regarding Baptist church kicking AA to the curb: On the same day I that story broke I noticed Billy Graham's daily drivel had a question about an alcoholic father. He advised prayer, confronting the dad and asking his pastor and/or doctor about local resources for recovery. No mention of AA, which is the obvious choice. Honestly, they'll hate on anybody. Mike Huckabee wants all atheists out of government. Apparently if you aren't taking your orders from a Mega-church and tithing to it you are a menace to them.
