    Exclamation Petition to stop Amazon Books selling books which advocate child abuse

    Excerpt taken from here


    Currently there are several books available to buy on Amazon (both .com and .co.uk) that advocate, endorse and advise on parenting methods that involve the physical abuse of children. Examples of titles include To Train Up A Child, by Michael and Debi Pearl; Shepherding a Child's Heart by Tedd Tripp; and Don't Make Me Count to Three by Ginger Plowman.
    Such books, and others like them, promote behaviour which is abusive of children. All of the above books advocate the use of a rod and other implements on children under one.
    Such behaviour is abusive to children, and it is also 'offensive', which is contrary to Amazon's Content Guidelines.
    I encourage everyone to get on and sign the online petition, they are aiming for 10,000 and are not far off.

    I remember a while back they were selling a book about how to sexually abuse a child (or something similar) - there was an uproar and i believe it may have been taken off (although they defended it as the right to free speech or some such crud).
    Anywho i signed a petition then and have boycotted them ever since. I'm really disappointed they are selling more offensive books - i will go sign now.
