Amazon Defends "Pedophile's Guide"

"Amazon believes it is censorship not to sell certain books simply because we or others believe their message is objectionable. Amazon does not support or promote hatred or criminal acts, however, we do support the right of every individual to make their own purchasing decisions."

Oh. That makes it OK then.

Does that mean they're going to continue to sell it?

Yep. :(

Hmmm, looks like they bowed to pressure although the other title I had linked to is still available.

I agree with Amazon not wanting to get into the habit of censorship; that's always bad for free thought and will be abused by radical fundamentalists to try to force their religious views down the throats of the rest of us. But...how on EARTH can this author DEFEND this book and think it is OKAY?!?!?!? My eyebrows are up at him, not at Amazon.

Yeah--I think the cops in the author's area need to be investigating him.

If pedophiliac acts are illegal, then Amazon IS "support(ing) or promot(ing) . . . criminal acts" by selling this book.
