Quote from: Unbeliever on November 25, 2019, 01:30:59 PMSeveral years ago a judge made me go to about 3 dozen AA meetings. I went to 9 and told the judge there was just too much religion in it. He said "Oh, I didn't know that." Then he sent me to some sort of thing where I'd have to pay a bunch of money, of which I had none at all. So when I told the judge that he just put me on court probation. Now that I could do.
