A Book Favorable to
Men and Boys Being Lovers is Being Sold on Amazon.com -Truth!
of the eRumor The message is a forward
of a letter from television minister the Rev. Jerry Falwell
protesting that Amazon.com is displaying and selling.
This story is true. The book is
real and is being carried by Amazon.com.
David Riegel, the author of the book, is described as the principal
moderator on an Internet site about the issues covered in the
book. He says that men who want man-boy love relationships are
"sincere, concerned, loving human beings who simply have - and
were probably born with - a sexual orientation that is neither
understood nor accepted by most others."
The publisher is SafeHaven Foundation Press, which says this is its
first book. It describes the volume by saying that "Many
researchers in the fields of Psychology and Human Sexuality have
been taking a fresh look at the "conventional" wisdom
which has been the basis for evaluation of intergenerational
male/male sexual activities. The long assumed "harm" of
such activities has failed to be supported by research, and the
sociocultural "wrongness" based on this "harm"
is therefore left without any rational basis."
SafeHaven Foundation Press is promoted on the same website as the
SafeHaven bookstore, which features books that are a
"...compendium of articles, commentaries, rebuttals, and
reviews of diverse aspects of boy love by various authors."
Falwell and others opposed to the book are encouraging a protest aimed
Amazon.com has issued a statement saying it does not endorse the book
and has posted a review of the volume by one of their editors who is
highly critical of it. The statement says the book is not a
"how to" on molesting boys and that Amazon.com does not
censure titles from its website and carries a lot of books with which
it does not agree.
example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:
WHAT'S GOING ON AT AMAZON.COM?
I could hardly believe what I was reading on the
WorldNetDaily website: Amazon.com is accused of "contributing to the
potential rape and molestation of children" by offering a book on
adult-on-child sexual relationships.
But upon visiting the Amazon.com site to investigate for myself, I found
that the book is indeed there. It is titled, "Understanding Loved
Boys and Boylovers." In fact, on the Amazon.com site, self-described
boy lovers and pedophiles offer positive reviews of the book, saying it
"attempt[s] to shed the positive aspects of a healthy boy/male
Yeah, it's creepy, all right. But there's more.
"By explaining what 'pedophiles' really are," writes one
pedophile, "it may help parents to understand that there may actually
be benefits to such relationships."
This is absolutely shameful. These fiends are attempting to convince
parents that there is no harm if they should target their children to
satisfy their sinister urges.
Amazon.com should immediately ban this dangerous book (and any similar
books) from its website and apologize for allowing such material to be
there in the first place.
Thankfully, the organization that uncovered the book's availability at
Amazon.com - the Escondido, Calif.-based United States Justice Foundation
- has written a letter to Amazon.com President Jeffrey Bezos, saying that
offering the book amounts to "an unfair and unethical business
practice." The USJF has given Amazon 30 days to withdraw the book or
face "protracted litigation."
As reported by WorldNetDaily, the book states: "Men who sexually
pursue young boys are not monsters, but sincere, concerned, loving human
beings who simply have a sexual orientation that is neither understood nor
accepted by most others."
As a veteran pastor, I can report that I have worked with families that
have been shattered because an adult has sexually abused a child. One need
look no further than the recent Catholic Church fiasco to see the
emotional anguish that is brought on by the abuse by an adult of a child.
Years later, the deep scars of the abuse remain.
And yet Amazon's initial response to this controversy has been to defend
the sale of the dreadful book, unbelievably saying freedom of expression
must be protected.
LOCK THEM UP AND THROW AWAY THE KEY
My good friend, Bedford, Virginia Sheriff Mike Brown,
who spearheads an undercover operation to apprehend child molesters, has
recounted to me how destructive these individuals are. Many pedophiles
(called "travelers") will voyage across the country in hopes of
meeting up with a youngster they have befriended on the Internet. Upon
their meeting, these gullible and often lonely children, thinking they
have discovered a friend, eventually realize they have been duped by an
individual who is fixated on sexually misusing them.
Thankfully, Sheriff Brown's team routinely poses as teenagers in Internet
chat rooms in order to meet these pedophiles. These undercover agents,
after convincing the pedophiles that they are forlorn teens or pre-teens,
frequently set up meetings with these pedophiles who are subsequently
arrested and prosecuted.
These are the types of individuals Amazon.com is promoting and protecting
by offering this dangerous book.
I am encouraging people to send an e-mail to Amazon.com (email@example.com)
in order to complain about the availability of "Understanding Loved
Boys and Boylovers" on their website.
After telling a couple of friends about this outrage today, these friends
told me they were going to immediately send e-mails to Amazon to say they
would not order again from the company until it ceased offering the book.
This is the type of action Amazon.com (and any other retail company) will
Please write to Amazon.com today (firstname.lastname@example.org) to considerately
request that they immediately drop the book "Understanding Loved Boys
