Priest silenced for ‘unacceptable’ sermon...
... later told a local newspaper that the church had picked a poor issue to oppose vehemently when it has stayed silent in the past on child sexual abuse.
"The church should have spoken out on so many other tragic issues and didn't," the priest told the St. John's Telegram.

Knowing no particulars about this priest, I would have to guess that he is of the generation that holds hypocrisy to be the greatest sin. I do not wish to diminish the the sin and hurt of the tragic abuses in Canada’s Maritime provinces. But that does not mean that The Church has no business teaching on the meaning of marriage.
