Is A.A. a religious organization or a temperance movement?

No, Alcoholics Anonymous is a recovery program based on spiritual principles, but it's membership includes people of many faiths, as well as agnostics and atheists.

Alcoholics Anonymous is not involved in any sort of temperance movement. In fact, A.A. has no opinion on outside issues; hence the A.A. name ought never be drawn into public controversy, including as whether other people should drink.

Its memberssimply know that they themselves cannot drink alcohol safely.
