Bader GInsberg wants the age of consent lowered to less than 12.

If you don't have an opinion about whether there is coercion involving teenage marriage, can you say anything about lowering the age of consent? I guess that you would say that would be good. Lowering the age of consent would eliminate the entire problem in your view. All gone now. All of this pedophilia and abusing children would now be consensual.

Anyone accused of abusing children would want you as their judge. You would say that you can't tell either way. You will not error on the side of protecting the child. In your view, children are no more innocent than adults, and both should be treated equally. Children should not be protected or believed any more than adults.

Lastly, you made no mention about drones killing children being a black and white issue. Why avoid agreeing with me about that? If you believe that this is one of the few black and white issues, let us agree that killing kids with drones is 100% evil and wrong.
