Republicans demand Amazon to resume selling books about ‘gay cure therapy’


A prominent group of Republican politicians which counts Mike Pence as a former member reportedly wants Amazon to resume the sale of books which promote the disgraced practices. The Republican Study Committee, a group made up of 145 of the 199 Republican house representatives, reportedly requested that members contact Amazon “with concerns” about its “censorship” of books “addressing unwanted same-sex attractions”. “It is not clear that any of the banned books have violated an Amazon policy, but rather that the company is choosing to censor speech,” the group wrote on its handout on July 17th. The books in question were authored by Joseph Nicolosi, co-founder of the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality who was died in 2017. He was known to some as the “father of conversion therapy.” According to Vice News, the handout urged members to read a story from the Federalist which accused Amazon of hypocrisy because it continues to sell books by Adolf Hitler, Joseph Goebbels and Benito Mussolini.
