When reports surfaced that Amazon.com was selling a how-to book on pedophilia titled, The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure: A Child-Lover’s Code of Conduct, the on-line service pulled the book. Unfortunately, hundreds of copies were reportedly sold to people presumably wanting to learn more about how to molest children.
Thousands of children are sexually abused in the U.S. every year. The damage done to these children can last a lifetime.
Penny Nance, chief executive officer of Concerned Women For America, expressed my sentiments: “Is it too much to ask that the U.S. Department of Justice do its due diligence in this case to make sure children are safe? There is no censorship here. Someone may be able to publish this trash, but that does not negate the fact that there is reasonable ground to suspect that abuse has been committed.
“In a day and age where we see government intervening in a whole bunch of issues that it shouldn’t, the least we can expect is for it to do what it is supposed to do and protect children from sexual predators.”
