I don't think it's the same crowd. The first ones were 'a group of Christians' whereas this latest incarnation of people who want to kill your sex life appear to be sectarian (at least on their website).
Appearances can be deceptive. All 12 step programs are faith based. They all owe there origins to the Oxford group - a christian evangelical movement founded in the 1920s. The founding members of the original 12 step programme (AA) were members of the Oxford group. To effectively work a 12 step programme you must have a belief in a higher power that is omnipotent, omnipresent and omnipotent. You must surrender to this higher power and believe that through doing so this higher power will perform a daily miracle of protecting you from a disease for which there is no cure.
There is a good reason why there website doesn't spell this out to you - because if they did almost all people would run a mile from this irrational hocus-pocus mumbo-jumbo. Also the AA big book explicitly advises members not to mention the religious focus of the organisation when recruiting new members for fear of frightening them away before they can be convinced to attend a meeting where group psychology can overtake their better judgement. In short it is a cult like organisation.
