It seemed implausible at first, but a book exists that lays out "ground rules" for and defends pedophilia.
Removed from Amazon.com after receiving more than 3,000 (mostly negative) comments, "The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure: A Child-Lover’s Code of Conduct" is being described as an "attempt to make pedophile situations safer for those juveniles that find themselves involved in them, by establishing certain rules for these adults to follow," describes the book's author, Phillip R. Greaves II, who, according to CNN's Anderson Cooper, has "feelings for children though he insists that he has never acted on them."
Although the book is no longer for sale on Amazon.com, the company responded to the situation with a defensive position:
"Amazon believes it is censorship not to sell certain books simply because we or others believe their message is objectionable. Amazon does not support or promote hatred or criminal acts, however, we do support the right of every individual to make their own purchasing decisions."
Amazon has failed to respond to several media outlets, including CNN, with any further statement on the matter.
