amazon sells child abuse manual

Amazon, the renowned internet purveyor of books and more sells Debi and Michael Pearls' books. These books are basically manuals on ways to train a child through continued beatings in order to create a child that obeys on command. The Pearls misuse the Biblical scriptures to justify their horrible and abusive techniques. I have been looking forward to making some purchases from Amazon, but I find that I just can't help them. Buy selling the Pearls' books, Amazon is part of the problem, they are implicitly condoning the brutalization of children in the name of training.

Please join the boycott of all who sell the books of the Pearls or otherwise support them and their abuse.

This is a tough one for me. I can boycott Amazon but I don't know if my husband can. We live in the boonies and Amazon has been our friend. DH just bought a band saw and drill from them, we did most of our Christmas shopping for out-of-town family from them, too.

I am going to write a letter to them complaining about the Pearls, though.

And speaking of Amazon, I placed an order on March 6, I did not choose free shipping, and that SOB still has NOT shipped yet. I am livid. I best be writing a letter about that, too.

I'll work on my husband about boycotting Amazon. And I will purchase from B&N from here on out.

Frankie, he does have other options. Sears, JC Penney's, what else have you got down there that sells general merchandise.

He may pay slightly more for a product, but sometimes we have to make sacrifices for the greater good.
