Maybe, maybe not. I don't know and you don't know it too. Btw. the Sony Corporation is a japanese company.

No. The book was a bestseller in most of the countries where it was published. Most of the readers were obviously interested in the book. Sonys customers are "the readers", not "the americans".

So all companies who are distributing Hitlers "Mein Kampf" do agree with its content? They are nazis? No.
All companies who are distributing McGraths "The Dawkins Delusion" (the "answer" to "The God Delusion") are religous and do agree to the content of McGraths book? No.
Sony offers some bestsellers on it's reader and yes, one of them is "The God Delusion" and it's content is highly atheistical. So what? Sony does not have to agree or to disagree with the content. Sony just thinks that enough readers are interested in the book.


I believe in god but i don't care about "The God Delusion" and i don't care if it's on the reader or not.
