DO something about it!
I didn't want this to get lost in the other thread so I'm starting a new one.

The "To Train Up a Child" book is unfortunately available for purchase on Amazon.com. Angry

This website has started a petition to have it (and other books advocating child abuse) removed so I thought I would point it out for anyone here that may want to sign it.

But, of course, that's just one source of sale. If anyone knows or hears of other actions being taken against this book, I'd be interested in hearing about those too.

Petitioned. And referred to rational people.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

Petitioned and posted on Facebook. I didn't know this was out there, although I'm not sure petitions work. But it can't hurt! Thanks, Impulse!!

I, of course, also signed it. Thank you to those of you who did so as well (including anyone who did but didn't specifically say so here). I don't know how effective the petition will be, but as Cathym112 said, it couldn't hurt. I just wish there was some way to go after the authors themselves. This really gets my blood boiling!

I may disagree with what they say, but I will defend to my death their right to say it..

Go for the publishers, they shouldn't have allowed that vile stuff into public domain.

Awesome! Perhaps we can burn some books next. Should we start with Judy Blume, CS Lewis or Richard Dawkins?

I really appreciate your taking a strong stand against a book you haven't read more than a few snippets of. Way to go! Next, let's protest voting and go back to feudal kings.

Yes, that would be awful:

*Rapist and paedophiles executed

*All debts remitted every seven years

*No work the seventh year, just enjoy the fruits of the sixth year--and the eighth year too

*No eminent domain, no socialism or communism, no Obamacare - yet all of life's modern conveniences

*Atheists utterly silent for fear of public recrimination

That would suck!
