Interesting for me - among all of the sermons that have been listed here - that the Archbishop of Sydney, Peter Jensen, should have offered one of the most understandably incarnational.

There was no anti-gay or anti women rhetoric - just the plain Gospel of God's en-fleshing through His Son, Jesus, and how that has affected the viability of our human en-God-ness since that time.

If only the ABS would concentrate on the salvific nature of our religious experience - instead of emphasising the specific problems he has with gender and sexuality - I'm sure he would meet with a lot less criticism from more liberated, and less puritanical, Christians.
