By now you’ve heard about the hot water Amazon.com is in over this new self-published e-book: The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure: A Child-lover’s Code of Conduct by Phillip R. Greaves II. During the initial onslaught of criticism and frenzied demands to remove the book from the online seller, Amazon resisted, saying that while they don’t condone criminal activity, they do support their customers’ rights to make their own purchasing decisions. And they also don’t support censorship. But late last night, after online shoppers took to Facebook and Twitter to organize a global boycott, Amazon caved to pressure and pulled the book from its Kindle shop.
We certainly don’t support pedophilia or any other type of criminal activity. But we’re not big fans of censorship, either.
