Conservative Leaders: Amazon Must Remove Anti-Christian Products That Violate Policies

January 11th, 2019 12:15 PM

On Friday, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell released the following joint letter to Amazon President Jeff Bezos calling on him to remove anti-Christian products that are available on the Amazon marketplace despite being a clear violation of company policies. 

The full text of the letter is below: 


January 11, 2019

Mr. Jeffrey Bezos
410 Terry Avenue N.
Seattle, WA 98109

Dear Mr. Bezos,

We are horrified to learn that Amazon is selling products containing some of the most disgusting and offensive anti-Christian images and messages we have ever seen. We are writing today to bring this matter to your attention, ask you to review the site for such materials, and remove these products immediately.

Here are two examples of the products currently available on your site:

Paraphernalia from the band Marduk with the message “F**k Me Jesus,” and a woman using a crucifix as a sex toy. Found on  Amazon here.

The “I Hate Jesus” pillow. Found on Amazon here

Amazon also sells t-shirts blaspheming Christ (“Who the F**k is Jesus?”) and the face of Jesus at the foot of the toilet.

Amazon’s policies prevent users from selling such “offensive and controversial materials.” We cannot think of anything more offensive to Christians than these kinds of products. Were Amazon to sell similar products targeting Allah instead, one could say with confidence it would trigger a violent worldwide reaction against your company. In fact, even the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has condemned these attacks on Christians as “inappropriate.”

We assume you are unaware vendors sell these products on Amazon. Now that you know, we are sure you are just as disgusted as we are. We are confident that by bringing these violations of Amazon’s policy to your attention, we have convinced you to direct your team to conduct a thorough review of the site and remove any and all anti-Christian products immediately.  On behalf of the tens of millions of Americans we represent collectively, we the undersigned await your reply.
