Today's sermon is mostly about greed.

Okay, if not greed, specifically, it's about a sense of entitlement which runs through our national blood like a sepsis.

If the idea that the Irish are an inherently shifty bunch who are always looking for an angle seems, I dunno, a bit racist to you (after all, even the mention of national characteristics is enough to have the usual inadequates shrieking about racism), then you just haven't been paying attention to what has been going on in this country recently.
