I don't think you apply a rule here. When a priest can do it well, then it doesn't even cross young kids' minds what he is talking about, but the adults (many of whom need to hear certain things when they are related to the readings) do get the message. I live in a parish community that has had several priests who preached clearly on moral topics. Some did it terribly and even upset families that personally liked and hung out with the priest. But, I have also seen priests do it very well without parents feeling like it will be an uncomfortable ride home when Johnny asks what Father was talking about. Our Pastor, for instance, does it very well. He doesn't belabor points, but will certainly not shy away from using the term sodomy and the like when he is applying the readings to modern times.

So, I think some of this depends on the gifts the priest has to speak about adult topics with kids present in a way that kids are not being exposed to things they shouldn't be. Much of this is in the proper use of vocabulary and using idioms that adults will understand, but sound harmless to kids' ears.

Edward Sri is amazing! You'll have to give us the "Reader's Digest" version afterward. :D
