Amazon Doesn't Believe in Censorship!!! Bad Press!!

Watching the news this morning, I was dismayed appalled to hear that a popular online retailer, Amazon, has among its listings, a guide for pedophiles!!  They cited that while they don't condone criminal activity, they also don't believe in censorship (paraphrased). See Blog Fairfield House  for further details. 

On the news they said Amazon has pulled the title from its listings, however it does not end there.  Apparently there are other titles listed with Amazon of equally disdainful content.  It is a criminal offense to have such materials in your possession.  Shouldn't it be criminal to sell such items?  I have written an email to express my disappointment in this practice.  We shall see what they have to say.  I will keep you posted.

I encourage you to do the same.  Go to their site, go to help, in the right hand column select "contact" and write.  Make your opinion known!  Make your voice count!  For the rights of innocent children everywhere, please make a stand.


  1. There are people who refuse to admit that there really are things that are right, and things that are wrong. They are passive and hid behind "It's their right" blah blah blah. The reality is they are afraid to make a stand because taking action means taking responsibility for consequences and they'd rather hide behind the rhetoric.

    Thank you for this post.

  2. If it is a criminal offence to be in possession of such a book, then how does one even get printed? Who is the publisher? How on earth do they get away with it? Presumably the author is then charged? There are certain things that our society simply does not condone, and promoting the sexual abuse of children is one of them. Yikes.

  3. Shirley I so agree with every word you're saying!
