    FoxNews.com - Consumers Call for Boycott of Amazon Over 'Pedophile's Guide'

    Amazon is selling an e-book entitled "The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure," and shocked consumers across the nation now are calling for a boycott of the online retail giant.


    The e-book, authored by Phillips Greaves, was published late last month, according to product details on Amazon.com. It sells for $4.79 on the company's Kindle Store.

    I consider myself to be very pro-free-speech, but this crosses the line. :mad:

    To me, it's just another form of conspiracy to commit a crime or aiding in the commission of a crime. I just don't see how such a thing can be allowed.​

    I'm hoping Amazon quickly sees the error of its ways here.

    They could make a slippery slope argument, but like most such arguments, it would be weak. The censorship argument is also weak, given that they are not the government, they must choose what to sell every day and they have previously elected not to sell objectionable products.

    I won't be shopping on amazon unti this is gone. (so I really hope it's gone by December, since amazon is a great source for Christmas shopping for me)

    How is it first amendment rights when it's a private business? Last I checked they are allowed to sell or not sell whatever they damn well please. Continuing to sell something this disgusting and wrong, well, I don't feel bad for all the business they are going to lose. I suggest selling your Amazon stock now!
