Linda replied to Lary9's discussion Is Religion Really Like Opium?
"Well if religion is like drug addiction, I hope the group "RR" (recovering from religion) uses a better strategy than "NA" or "AA" - The 12 step program is equivalent to religious virulency  :)"

Linda replied to Linda's discussion Question to Dad: Seeds of racism
