It's all very well to say all that, but if you say that child abuse is punishment for sins committed in a previous life (and that is very clearly what Bill said; there was no room for doubt), then you are telling child abuse victims that it's their own fault - something many, if not most, are already prone to irrationally feel. Regardless of any arguments about reincarnation, I stand by what I've said; I find that loathesome.
He seemed reluctant to say it and I guess that's because it's an extremely complicated topic (karma) and just cannot be summed up in a sentence. So therefore I agree that what he said was very ill advised.
