This is my attempt to make pedophile situations safer for those juveniles that find themselves involved in them, by establishing certian [sic] rules for these adults to follow," a product description read. "I hope to achieve this by appealing to the better nature of pedosexuals, with hope that their doing so will result in less hatred and perhaps liter sentences should they ever be caught."Safer?? So that there would be less hatred and perhaps lighter sentences should they ever be caught." Oh my!
To Amazon.com's defense comes, Mr. Christopher Finan, President of the American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression:
That doesn't mean Amazon should be prohibited from selling it, counters Christopher Finan, president of the American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression. He said that Amazon has the right under the First Amendment to sell any book that is not child pornography or legally obscene. Finan said Greaves' book doesn't amount to either because it does not include illustrations.So it doesn't include illustrations? That's why is shouldn't be denied being listed and sold publicly? No illustrations, content doesn't matter?
Tell me, Christopher Finan, you a parent two sons, right? How would you feel if a sex abuser got a hold of one of your sons using the information from this nifty little "How-to" book? Would that allow you to sleep at night a possibly a little better? Can you see the faces of these children?
Once again this issue comes up that one has a 'right' under the First Amendment to freedom of expression, doing what they want with no regard on how it may affect others.
Child abuse debilitates, but child SEXUAL abuse destroys a person forever. Abuse in any form never goes away, it is always in the memory of the victim....and possibly in the aggressor as well. There is documented proof of the emotional and physical damage to persons involved abuse. These people are NEVER the same, so let's talk about the children who trust unconditionally the authority and care of adults. When they are sexually assaulted, where is there point of perspective? Where do they fine the truth of right and wrong actions?
To this "next generation' individual, sex is neither right or wrong nor a beautiful emotional gift of physical self-donation to their future life-long love. Nope, not for this now broken child. Hence, continued high rate of divorce, broken relationships, more unwanted, or back-burner babies, abortions, the continued cycle of sexual, physical and emotional abuse, and the sad downspiral of our societal neucleous called the family consisting of mom, dad and children proliferates.
Just look around Amazon, Christopher Finan, and all those who cherish and defend the 'RIGHT' to delusional freedoms. What do you really see? Happy families, strong society, successful students at high rates of completion of higher education? Smaller prisons, less violence in the schools, abortion mills closing, happy children on less emotional drugs? What is the reality of the state of our nation? World? Is it getting better?
The human person is a relational being. Sex is the icing on the cake when in the secure and proper setting of a marriage. Sounds old-fashioned, I know. But the right to have a happy relationship that is both healthy and nurturing does not come from anywhere and by anybody. It takes time, patience, and good judgement. This healthy state of being radiates throughout the couple into the community, affecting our society in positive ways, giving strength and good inspiration to others around them.
The right to have sex with a child, or the freedom of expression to publish and sell, much less write a book about 'safe sex with a child' is a heinous act against society and healthy children. It says to the general public, go ahead and have sex with a child if you want, we'll help you with this "how-to' book. We don't really care how the child feels, or the parents, or how the future will turn out for these people...that's not what we are here for, we are here for you to get your joys off successfully with an innocent, trusting, and unprotected child.
How dare you think this is ok!!?? How dare you think this is right and healthy and moral!!!
Amazon, you are off my list for this Christmas and I hope those who read this can see how this needs to be off their's as well.
God help you and those who think this type of publication is needed in our society.
God help us all!
