"Amazon.com believes it is censorship not to sell certain titles because we believe their message is objectionable. Therefore, we'll continue to make controversial works available in the United States and everywhere else, except where they're prohibited by law.
Another one of these books that we haven't yet talked about appears in the form of "The Witch's Bible." Authored by Gavin and Yvonne Frost, in a chapter titled "Initiation and Fertility Services," the book describes bizarre sexual rituals which children must undergo:
“It is hoped by Wicca that the first full sexual experience will take place in the plesant surroundings of the coven and that the spiritual as well as the physical aspects of the experience will lead the child to a complete life."Prior to that "sexual experience" taking place, the book gives instructions on how to produce a homemade "phallus" (dildo) out of wood, nylon cord, and wax and suggests that a child must begin this initiation "When a child develops to a stage where the physical attributes of reproduction are present..." (so in range between 10-12 years old):
“At the last sabbat or eshbat before the initiation, the female novice is given the sacred phallus (dildo) and the instruction sheet in Table 5 so that she can learn to insert and remove the phallus quickly and comfortably. She is also taught how she should lie and what she should do during the initiation ceremony. ”
"You have been entrusted with two phali (dildo); these are in your care until your initiation. We would like you to be initiated at the next coven meeting, which will take place on …. This means that, excluding your menstruation time, you have three weeks to prepare your muscles for introitus. Your father or your sponsor will help you if you have any difficulties or pain. You may have to delay your initiation, but there is plenty of time and no need to hurry. These are important development phases. Relax and take your time. You have no hymen; there is no restriction except the vaginal muscles."It sounds a lot like rape using an object, but despite the behavior this book encourages Amazon.com continues to sell it anyway.
What's confusing however is that Amazon.com recently stopped selling a video game with a similar theme:
"In Rapelay, gamers direct a character to sexually assault a mother and her two young daughters at an underground station, before raping any of a selection female characters."
"Rapelay, which was released in 2006, encourages players to force the virtual woman they rape to have an abortion. If they are allowed to give birth the woman throws the player's character under a train, according to reviews of the game. It also has a feature allowing several players to team up against individual women. "Here's how Amazon.com replied:
"We determined that we did not want to be selling this particular item,"Quite frankly, I'm surprised; what ever happened to "Amazon.com believes it is censorship not to sell certain titles because we believe their message is objectionable"?
I would have thought Jeff Bezos would gladly sell a product which promotes raping women, considering that he stand's by selling books which encourage adults to molest and sexually abuse children.
