“When I joined AA and realized that we used the Serenity Prayer which was written not by some anonymous author, but by the great theologian, Reinhold Niebuhr, as he wrestled with the need for the U.S. to stand up to the Nazi’s during the 1930’s and that it was commandeered by a friend of the German American Bund, Henry Ford, whose “business plot” against FDR was foiled by Smedley Darlington Butler, I was furious. Ford wanted it used to give substance to the AA movement, but I was P.O.’ed,” said Soleman. "That prayer was being used to keep us suckers in the closet sucking the bottle trying to figure out what they could and couldn't change when Niebuhr used it from a different point of view. Not in a closet, but out on the limb where you're already decided to join the rebellion! The Serenity Prayer was stolen!"

I’m just against the brewers and distillers making people with a proclivity to alcohol abuse a victim like Albert Lasker, the father of modern advertising did with nicotine, by sticking it in military service men's rations during World War II and then pumping it with cutie slogans like LSMFT....Lucky Strikes Mean Fine Tobacco....yea, that will rot you're damn lungs out and turn your vocal chords and jowls into black tar,” said Soleman. “That’s why I created the Onymous Brothers of St. Olaf’s Parish. We are AO, Alcoholics Onymous....not Anonymous.... and damn proud of it,” he said.
