Philip R. Greaves II is a man defending what most deem unthinkable.
Greaves told media outlets on Wednesday, "Every time you see them on television, they're either murderers, rapists or kidnappers, and, you know, that's just not an accurate presentation of that particular sexuality, it's not."
A Pueblo resident, Greaves doesn't agree with society's perception of pedophilia. That's why he wrote about it in a new book.
"The child's pleasure and happiness come first. The child should never be asked to do anything that would be stressful to it," Greaves said.
Those extreme views are now available for purchase on Amazon.com, a move that's drawing a firestorm of criticism.
Among them is Mike Harris. He's arrested more than 470 pedophiles in his time as the Jefferson County District Attorney's investigator.
"When it fuels the motive for people on how to approach kids, how to find kids, how to touch kids and sexually abuse them, that's just wrong," Harris said.
Lisa Hogan, an attorney with Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, specializes in child protection and says she does not think the book is illegal.
"The First Amendment does not protect obscenity or child pornography, but child pornography as far as I have been able to determine, does not include the written words," Hogan said.
Hogan says in this case, Greaves has the right to publish and Amazon.com has the right to sell it.
In the book, complete with grammatical errors, Greaves wrote: "This is my attempt to make pedophile situations safer for those juveniles."
Hogan, a former prosecutor, doesn't see the logic.
"It's a way for them to self-justify or rationalize what is criminal behavior that robs children of their innocence and of their childhood," Hogan said.
Greaves goes on to say he's hoping to promote "liter (sic) sentences should they ever be caught."
It's an idea many won't entertain.
"This guy is trying to say they should be understood. The only understanding that we should understand is we shouldn't have people going after our kids," Harris said.
9NEWS did contact Amazon.com and it released this statement: "Amazon does not support or promote hatred or criminal acts, however, we do support the right of every individual to make their own purchasing decisions."
