Amazon Removes ‘Pedophile’s Guide’ from Site
Amazon has apparently pulled a pro-pedophilia e-book from its site after news of its existence made the rounds in the blogosphere.
On Monday, TechCrunch reported that Amazon was offering “The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure” on its Web site, a self-published book that describes itself as a guide for so-called “pedosexuals.”
Amazon initially declined to remove the book, and said that doing so amounted to censorship. “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,” the company said.
By Thursday morning, however, the book’s page on Amazon was no longer active. It currently returns an error that says “We’re sorry. The Web address you entered is not a functioning page on our site.” The book still shows up in Amazon search, but clicking on the search results also returns the dead link.
Amazon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
According to the book’s description, author Philip R. Greaves 2nd said it was his “attempt to make pedophile situations safer for those juveniles that find themselves involved in them, by establishing certain rules for these adults to follow.”
“I hope to achieve this by appealing to the better nature of pedosexuals, with hope that their doing so will result in less hatred and perhaps lighter sentences should they ever be caught,” he continued.
A search for Greaves on Amazon showed at least four e-books he authored; descriptions of which include numerous grammatical and spelling errors.
“The Grand Delusion,” for example, is described as “an examination of man and his many notions of ‘God’ with an aim toward disproving the existence of any universal intelengence [sic] of omnipotent creator.” Another book, “A Government Service to All” discusses “the political realities that influence us all,” while “Our Gardens of Flesh” is described as “a work that examines sex and sexually from its primodial origins through its historical colorations to its ultimate expression as man’s extential celebration of life and developement [sic] as the supreme expression friendship and love.”
