Today, if an AA group dares to take this a step further and call itself “agnostic,” or
“atheistic,” or make any changes to the Steps as published, it risks expulsion from
the sacred meeting lists of its local Intergoup. What is going on? Are we here to
get sober, or to argue about our religious beliefs? This story is the subject of

of individual beliefs in opposition to the “god bit,” and particularly the western

The AA historian Ernest Kurtz referred to this principle as “joyous pluralism”, in
his book, 'Not-God, A History of Alcoholics Anonymous' (P. 151, Hazelden Press,
1979). It is worth mentioning at this point that several empirical research studies

Wilson, who is sometimes portrayed as atheist, was not. “I had always believed in
a Power greater than myself. I had often pondered these things. I was not an
atheist.” The author of “We Agnostics” also seems, from his own story, to have not
been an agnostic as well, instead believing in “a Spirit of the Universe, who knew
neither time nor limitation”. He shared his maternal grandfather's “contempt of
some church folk and their doings... his denial of the preacher's right to tell him
