Bill Maher's Hypocrisy On Paedophilia

Bill Maher thinks he did a great public service by inviting Milo Yiannopolous on his Real Time programme on HBO where the alt.right troll got into it for defending man/boy love he received as a youngster from "Father Mike." Gloating, Maher praised Bill Maher, saying that "Sunlight is the best disinfectant. You're welcome."

It turns out Maher has had a brush with this issue before and he came down on the same side as Milo.

Sure, Mary Kay Letourneau was a 35-year old teacher, like Father Mike in a position of authority and influence over the child she diddled, but, to Maher, it was not rape, it was love.

Maher is only a few degrees of separation from Milo. Both want to be entertaining by resorting to controversy.

As he demonstrates with his position on Muslims, Maher has a narrow and poorly formed opinion. In the case of Letourneau he failed to grasp the dynamics - she was an adult, he was a barely post-pubescent boy. As a teacher she held a position of trust, influence and power over the kid (much like a priest). She betrayed her position to seduce the boy. That's not love. That's child abuse but Maher's moral compass didn't register the difference.
