This is not something that is to be made fun of.
Molesting isn't funny, but Bill's kill-a-thons are. Especially since Bill already killed the Rattry's. Now he just up and kills a crippled old man who once stroked his great-niece's hair and had horrible thoughts? As you said, it wasn't made out to be that explicit. Which is fine by me, child molestation as drama gets old and it felt tacked onto these recent episodes.
The child molestation, by Sookie's reaction to him at the funeral and her telling Bill was that he touched her sexually, you just didn't get that part of the flashback. And Sookie could hear it coming, hear his thoughts at the same time.

It was a plot point in the book, not 'tacked on' in the show. Bill was furious! Bill killed him for revenge...he is a vampire after all. He killed the Rattry's because they had just about killed Sookie. It was a defensive act that even a human might have done to protect a girl being savagly beaten by a man and a woman. Of course, Bill being a vampire, had a late night snack too.
