Looking for something better than Alanon

Hi Folks! I've been part of Atheist Nexus for years, but haven't been all that active recently. My husband (a superstitious, anti-organized-religion, theist) started attending AA meetings last year, and suggested I start attending Alanon. I can't stand the opening/closing prayers, the reading to the 12 steps, most of which makes reference to god/higher power. I feel like everyone at these meetings drank the coolaid, and I wonder what brainwashing is going on in the AA meetings my husband is…See More

Help me understand...

My neighborhood is primarily Catholic with some jewish folks and other christians sprinkled around.Recently a neighbor started circulating an email about a group home that was slated to move into the neighborhood. It was a home for mentally disabled pregnant girls. The girls would come to live in the home during their 2nd trimester and stay there until their babies were a year old. The babies would be put in foster care and the moms would go to some other care facility afterward. There would be…See More
