Pedophilia and Amazon.com

The title caught you off guard didn’t it? Sadly, there is a link between these entities. The book entitled The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure: A Child Lover’s Code of Conduct, promotes the idea of making “pedophile situations safer (officialwire.com).”

Sadly, the book was sold on Amazon.com until Wednesday, November 10th. They can’t possibly think this kind of publicity will cause people to like them.

In fact, many people were and are still completely outraged. The FBI and other authorities complained. Customers cancelled their accounts and refused to buy another thing until the book was taken down.

At first, Amazon.com refused to stop selling the book. Their argument was that not selling the book condones “censorship” and would be a violation of the First Amendment.

Molestation is illegal guys. It’s okay for people to make their own decisions about what they want to purchase, but that does not mean Amazon has to make it easy for perverts to access “guidelines.”

The “First Amendment” mumbo jumbo can be summed up as a terrible excuse for Amazon to keep making money from the book sales. If they keep this behavior up, they will not have a company to make money from.

Americans are very aware of their rights, but most normal people would not condone anything involving the victimization of children.

Truth is, Amazon’s reluctance to pull the book will tarnish their reputation for years to come. Everyone will always remember their reaction.  They will definitely have to do some customer butt-kissing to make up for this.
