Parents Boycott Amazon Over Pedophile Book

Earlier this week, mombloggers urged parents to boycott Amazon.com for selling a book called The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure: A Child-Lover’s Code of Conduct. The book is a truly despicable concept for sure, but should Amazon cede to the pressure of angry parents?

It’s also somewhat ironic that a book that was previously unknown (the book had sold one copy, at #158,221 in the Kindle Store) is now getting a lot of undue media attention for the controversy. It’s strange how a little scandal can launch a career instead of squashing one (see: Paris Hilton).

There, of course, is the free speech argument. While you and I may not agree with the material of the book, is that enough grounds to justify banning it?

Do you think parents should boycott Amazon over the book?
