British Parliament Wants Amazon to Stop Selling TTUAC

Nadine Dorries, a member of the British Parliament, is insisting that Amazon.co.uk stop selling Michael and Debi Pearl’s book, To Train Up A Child, according to an article by Jessica Elgot in the Huffington Post.

The story was then picked up by Parentdish who wrote quite a long article about the story as well as the book in question.

Also, there is a new petition on Change.com asking Amazon.co.uk to stop selling To Train Up A Child.   This petition is only about To Train Up A Child, unlike the old petition which asked Amazon to “refuse to carry books which advocate the physical abuse of children,” including, Shepherding a Child’s Heart by Tedd Tripp; and Don’t Make Me Count to Three by Ginger Plowman.

On top of that, @ADadCalledSpen has An Open Letter to Jeff Bezos and All @Amazon About To Train Up A Child going around Twitter.

About Hermana Linda
Hermana means sister in Spanish and Linda is my name. I was born in late 1960 to a mother who had traveled around the world and had been impressed at the baby wearing she saw in Africa and Japan. While in Japan she purchased the baby carrier in which she is wearing me in my avatar. By the grace of God, I trusted Jesus as my personal savior in 1983. He gave me a husband in 1987 and 2 sons in the early 1990's. All glory to God.

    Did you see that Michael Pearl had a similar response to his “laughing” at the death of a child? This time he’s “delighted.”

    Quote:
    The author of a book that advocates beating children under a year old with paddles said he was “delighted” to discover a Tory MP was calling for it to be banned on Amazon’s website.

    Michael Pearl told BBC Radio 5 Live that if the book is removed from the retailer’s website, he will “advertise it as ‘the book banned in the UK’”.

    • Thank you, I saw that and am working on a post. I seem to move slower than everyone else, but that’s okay. I do everything very slowly, deliberately and prayerfully. I appreciate the heads ups since I do often miss things and am still feeling my way around Twitter.
