The 10 Tenets of Rafatards Anonymous

1. We admitted we were powerless over our addiction, that our lives had become unmanageable.

The first of the 10 Tenets of Rafatards Anonymous, this states that the Rafatard needs to accept and understand that his/her condition and all of its issues is a direct result of his/her actions, driven by the addiction and not individual choice. The Rafatard has to reach a position of total acceptance of a need for help as a basic requirement for further progress toward recovery without which no further salvation is possible.

2. We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to tennis sanity.

The next important step begins with an admission that there is a greater power that can guide our tennis lives, rather than base desires and feelings for physique. This power has the capacity to help, support and enable us to overcome our personal shortcomings, and restore us to clean, pure and happy tennis individuals that we were meant to be.

3. We made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of JesusFed.

This step starts with an admission and recognition that we can trust ourselves to this greater beauty that we may call Jesusfed, and that He is capable of turning our lives around through His infinite supremacy.

4. We make a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

This step again turns to the inward contemplation of the individual and his/her failings. We are required to look at our Piggy addiction, its manifestations and effects truthfully, honestly and without any spiritual or moral cover-ups. This step encourages the individual to recognize the damage and issues that their addiction is causing in their tennis lives from all perspectives: self (delusion), social (pariah status on MTF) and psychological (long term damage from low self esteem as Rafa consistently fails to perform up to seeding).

5. We admitted to Jesusfed, to ourselves, and to another human being (any of Jesusfed's Messiahs aka fans) the exact nature of our wrongs.

As an important aspect to reaching out for support, this step encourages sharing of our observations of our own failings (that Piggy is greater than JesusFed) with other individuals. Honesty and an unflinching desire to change are required of an individual seeking redemption from Piggy addiction. Until now, the individual has only acknowledged within his/her self that they are fallible and weak. This step encourages us to reach out and to make our problem real by the sharing with others by admitting that Piggy is not and will never be a real tennis genius and more has a disgusting habit of ass picking that no sane human being could ever condone or explain away.

6. We’re entirely ready to have JesusFed remove all these defects of character.

Having acknowledged our failings to the external world, we are encouraged to affirm our desire for change, for improvement and for support through our participation by cheering every JesusFed win but especially those over Piggy. This step encourages a review of our commitment and our conviction that we are ready for the changes in our tennis lives, actions, attitudes and character and in our rededication of our lives to JesusFed.

7. We humbly asked JesusFed to remove our shortcomings.

We are again required to affirm our belief in JesusFed and his supremacy and to now use this power to enable us to set our persons and tennis lives free from the damaging and destructive elements that were influencing us in the past. A basic attitude of humility and acceptance to JesusFed is essential at this point.

8. We made a list of all persons we had harmed (in our posts against JesusFed), and became willing to make amends to them all.

We are again encouraged to review the list that we had made of people in our lives that we had wronged through our addictive self and behaviors. The individual is encouraged to recognize a need to repair the damage that they had inadvertently caused to their personal and family lives and in their social interactions (on MTF). This will include praising every "JesusFed is Great" thread and awarding positive reputation to all JesusFed's Messiahs especiallywho post in RonE's Piggy Roasting thread!

9. We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

Recognizing that Rafatard recovery is a long term and continuous process, we are encouraged to take periodical stock of our actions and behaviors. We must recognize that we can fail and that we may make mistakes – we should be willing and open to make any amends that may be required, (even if it implies some form of personal disgrace at times) by creating a thread whereby each wrong against JesusFed will be listed and contrition and rededication to Him will be made.

10. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we try to carry this message to other addicts and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

Sharing and empowerment are the basic tenets of this final part of the 10 Tenets of Rafatard Anonymous. We reach out to others who are suffering as we once were. Through our interactions and our intervention, we see them grow and become free of their addiction. We see ourselves making new friends and we see us as contributing positively to others’ tennis lives and the world as a whole through our compassion and our understanding that they are suffering as we once were ourselves. We shall especially go on to VamosBrigade.Com and proceed to loudly proclaim the error of our ways and glofify our new power in our life - that is the power of Jesusfed to serve up roast pig forevermore.
