"A VILE best-seller which praises paedophiles should be banned, protesters demanded last night.
The £6.50 book, Understanding Loved Boys and Boylovers, is a top-seller on books website Amazon.
Author David L Riegel supports sex with under-age boys."
No, no, no and no. It is not acceptable, it is not to be tolerated, and it is not a "life style choice" or "sexual orientation."
Definately worth getting upset though, if it's for real. Ick.
Don't believe for a second that just because a book is selling is any indication that people are accepting it - I myself own books about the holocaust (my family is Jewish and most of it destroyed in the holocaust) - trust me when I say that has no reflection on "acceptance" of what happened.
Ironically, part of the reason that the Holocaust was able to happen is because the SS was actively censoring information. So it would be tragic to do the same thing with the ensuing publications.
I just want to differentiate between those of us who passionately support free speech and the notion that we then therefore support pedophilia/rape/naziism/anything else that is published that is vile. Certainly I think pedophiles should all be jailed forever with no chance of parole since I don't believe they can ever rehabilitate.
I've been to countries where they actively censor. I find it creepy - the government deciding what you can read. No thank you.
I wanted to ask, What does the availability of this book have to do with PC or acceptance? I cannot find the connection to either term.................
Political Correctness...pedophiles are seeking to have their "sexual preferences" recognised and accepted as a legitimate alternative, just like any other sexual preference.
The only people who will accept this book are the pedophiles themselves. I am so grossed out that they believe that there are acceptable and even "beneficial" man/boy sexual relationships. I am also disheartened that these people liken their fetish to adult homosexuals, calling underage boy relations "consensual." YUCK!
i was raised around gay people so i have no issue with sexual orientation. i also have a friend that i have known since high school who is a pedophile. he at least has the good sense not to act on it, he understands that it is not appropriate if not flat out wrong. he is a great guy but you can bet i wouldn't leave my son alone with him. and that is how i have to think of it. it enrages me that this may someday be an acceptable sexual preference.
infoispower, i see your point without you having to clarify and i totally agree with you.

Free Speech...fine. However, why are publishers even accepting this dreck, why are books like these even getting to the shelves in the first place?
It's a shame that many, many entities put a priority on the almighty dollar over "family values."

In the 108-page book, which has sold 150,000 copies, Mr Riegel describes paedophiles as "sincere, concerned, loving human beings" who have probably been born with "a sexual orientation neither understood nor accepted by most others".
Amazon said the book was not a child molester's "how-to", adding it had no role in censoring what it sold.
I for one will not use Amazon. They can go suck lemons.
This book is trying to normalise deviant and harmful behaviour and make pedophila seem misunderstood. Okay I gotta go barf now :Puke
