When questioned about the book and calls for a boycott against Amazon began, Amazon released the following statement:
"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 Seattle-based company said in a statement released to TechCrunch and other blogs.Apparently they also want to be sure to support the rights of pedophiles to have a book on how to have relations with children. It is disgusting to find information, by a medium that already preys on innocent children, how to have a "proper" and less horrific relationship available. For Amazon to distribute this information, on a criminal act-illegal in EVERY state-should be a crime in itself. While I have no tolerance for censorship or thought police, to me this would be like publishing a manual on how to effectively rob a bank. It seems if the act is illegal, the publishing of a manual should not be allowed.
It would seem right before the holiday shopping season is to start, this is a very poor move by a retail giant like Amazon. There is no doubt this decision will have repercussions.
