It was a 12 & 12 meeting tonight.  We just happened to be reading on step 6, right were my sponsee has just gotten to.  Steps 6 and 7 make me queasy.  It seems that this is the most likely place for religion to hijack spirituality.  The behaviour control philosophies of centralized religion can eat away at the foundation of powerlessness that set us free from our alcoholism / addiction.  The sin and disease concepts are very different.  Yet similar enough to be like a date rape drug in an otherwise nurturing drink of fellowship.  How do I reconcile this?  Prayer and time and rest needed.  Good night.
