If you are so concerned about Mr. Maher's remarks you should cancel your HBO subscription. His show is on paid TV. There are no sponsors, except the viewers. If enough viewers cancel, HBO would likely drop his show.
I do have a man-crush on Bill Maher though. His views on many things such as religion, healthcare, and foreign policy are very refreshing compared to the out-of-touch politicians and political commentators on tv today. Im going to go out on a limb and say you have never actually watched his show. You are most likely relaying some talking points you read from whatever right-wing christian website you love.
His statement though is a bit of an exaggeration. I wouldnt say the church promotes pedophillia, but they certainly have not done much to stop or prevent it from going on.
