Amazon’s Favorite Pedophile Author Phillip Ray Greaves II Arrested On Obscenity Charges

Phillip Ray Greaves II, the self-professed celibate non-pedophile whose book on hunting children Amazon.com long refused to remove, was arrested in Florida on obscenity charges. He mailed a copy of The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure: a Child-lover’s Code of Conduct to sheriff’s deputies who ordered it, and since authorities believe the book is not covered by Greaves’ First Amendment rights, they are prosecuting him. In related news, Amazon has removed at least three “erotic incest fantasy fiction” titles, because those books, while depicting intra-family relations among adults, are supposedly in violation of Amazon’s content guidelines, while fictional books about serial rapists, murderers, and Dan Akroyd are still available for purchase. At present time, NAMBLA representatives could not be reached for comment about either story.
