More blows is the main advantage of light weapons. Heavy weapons get more critical hits, if I recall correctly. Light weapons are also light, if you have weight issues. Plus, whips are fairly cheap.

I haven't played priestly types in too long, so I don't have a good feel for what the proportion of non-edged weapons is. As a warrior or mage I usually just get a dagger and wait to find a good dungeon weapon. If that works for priests, then the whip is a better buy because it is 100gp cheaper than the mace. 4-5 ?PD can be fairly valuable.
