I very much enjoyed Bishop Price's sermon commemorating Archbishop Oscar Romero. I second his idea that moralism (as opposed to morality) has replaced justice in the churches these days.
I would go even further and say that this preoccupation with sex provides a convenient moralizing camouflage for the already rich and powerful as they seek to confiscate what is left to the poor and the middle class. It seems to me that some priests are out to bamboozle their charges into believing that somehow they deserve to be robbed.
