Author of "Anarchist Cookbook" is a Confirmed Anglican Christian

William Powell is the author of the The Anarchist Cookbook. William Powell himself wrote a missive on Amazon pleading to anyone willing to listen that he regrets writing the book because he is now a "confirmed anglican christian" with children of his own and no longer believes that violence is an acceptable means to bring about political change.

According to what William Powell wrote on Amazon, he became an anglican christian in 1976, just a mere 7 years after writing the Anarchist Cookbook and only a couple of years after the end of the Vietnam War.

Did you ever notice how a lot of wacko freaks seem to eventually find christianity? There's a good reason for that. They are unstable and irrational in the first place with a mind susceptible to irrational suggestion so it's natural they would gravitate toward the most popular form of mass superstition - christianity.

William Powell doesn't mention what religion he believed in before anglican christianity. Perhaps he was one of those who claims to be "spiritual but not religious." It's highly unlikely, however, that he was an explicit atheist prior to writing the Anarchist Cookbook because it's highly unlikely that an explicit atheist would ever consider violence acceptable. Not even during the stupid Vietnam War. Only a religious person could consider violence and murder as acceptable ways to protest the violence and murder of war.

Why is it that wacko superstitious freaks never find objective reasoning as their mental and moral beacon? Probably the same reason that a civilized, educated person can pretend to be a crude swine but a crude swine is not capable of acting civilized and educated.
