Amazon selling pro pedophilia book? What are they thinking?
Amazon is currently selling a self published book that promotes pedophilia. The book is titled "The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure" by Philip R. Greaves II, and was released on Oct. 28th. It's subtitle describes it as a child lover's code of conduct.
Amazon has responded to critics by refusing to pull the book from it's marketplace claiming it would be censorship to do so.
While many are criticizing Amazon for their decision, others are praising Amazon for protecting free speech.
I definitely feel uncomfortable with Amazon's decision to offer this book for public consumption. While such a book might be protected by the 1st Amendment is it ethical to sell a book that promotes abuse? What do you think Amazon should do?
Let me know your thoughts.
