Anderson Cooper, Keeping Pedophiles (And Their Booksellers) Honest

Things we know make Anderson Cooper “mad” (or, in Andy’s television world, “stoic”): Lying about how much money Obama spends on international travel, and selling The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure, which can be delivered to your Kindle in seconds right now.

The book from author and self-identified celibate pedophile Phillip R Greaves II — described by one website as “a rogue scholar with respect to the topics of religion, sexuality and politics” — is his “attempt to make pedophile situations safer for those juveniles that find themselves involved in them, by establishing certian rules for these adults to follow. I hope to achieve this by appealing to the better nature of pedosexuals, with hope that their doing so will result in less hatred and perhaps liter sentences should they ever be caught.”

Yes, an actual guide for pedophiles. And Amazon isn’t pulling it anytime soon, saying in a statement, “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.”

Yuck, right? Even yuckier, notes Cooper — whose producers seem to have read some passages from the book, YUCK — is that some of the advice Greaves gives to pedophiles is that if they are disease free, they don’t have to wear condoms.

Now here’s hoping this post becomes the No. 1 Google result for “Anderson Cooper pedophile.”
