Amazon no longer selling guide for pedophiles

From the San Francisco Chronicle, reporting an AP release ...

This particular article has already generated significant discussion on many list-serves and other bulletin boards.

From the article:

The book, "The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure: a Child-lover's Code of Conduct," offers advice to pedophiles on how to make a sexual encounter with a child as safe as possible. It includes first-person descriptions of such encounters, purportedly written from a child's point of view.

This would appear to be a clear case of where the rubber meets the road on the issue of First Amendment rights vs. public safety (especially children). No doubt, many people will have passionate views on the subject. Feel free to share some of them here.

  1. If the issue was solely about public safety, then how do you explain that in the process of removing this particular book, they also banned "Pedophiles on Parade"?
