I've watched the video in question and I appreciate his reference to a Catholic priest was tongue in cheek, but it's what he said after that crossed the line. You cannot, in a civilised society, make puberty the dividing line between statutory rape/abuse and a healthy sexual relationship, which is what Milo said.
I think Milo screwed himself regardless. He was trying to delineate between puberty and age of consent, which varies from one "civilization" to another. In any case, he wasn't condoning pedophilia.

But we know people are not typically able to discern to this level of detail. Scandal and outrage serve political agendas better.
