Christian books Banned, Paedophile Poison Sold

Christian authors who once identified as gay or lesbian are highlighting the double standard Amazon is applying by removing their books from the platform while continuing to sell titles that promote paedophilia.
Restored Hope Network Executive Director Anne Paulk and pastoral counselor Joe Dallas both saw their books removed from the retail giant. Amazon told the authors that their books, which detail how Jesus transformed their lives and sexual identities, were in "violation of our content guidelines."
Paulk, the author of Restoring Sexual Identity: Hope for Women Who Struggle with Same-Sex Attraction, said in a statement to The Christian Post on Thursday that she's not surprised books like her's and Dallas' have been banned by the retailer.
“But it is literally criminal what the site still offers for sale,” she said.
Among the books that remain available through Amazon is Pedophilia and Adult-Child Sex: A Philosophical Analysis by Stephen Kershnar, which defends the sexual exploitation of children.
The description of the book on Amazon claims that it's "not clear" whether expressions of disgust and judgments against such sexual practices are justified, whether moral or aesthetic.
Paulk's and Dallas' books were removed from Amazon along with the works of Catholic attorney David A. Robinson, and the late Catholic psychologist Joseph Nicolosi as a result of a petition by gay activist Rojo Alan.
Paulk added Thursday: “It is appalling that Amazon has banned books detailing how one struggling with unwanted same-sex attraction can overcome those feelings and steward his or her sexuality in a biblical fashion, while thinking nothing of selling books that celebrate the kind of deviancy Jeffrey Epstein was accused of.”
