A couple weeks ago, Pat Archbold started a discussion on boys and "cursing" at the National Catholic Register. I was late in reading the post, but thought that, as a mother of 4 boys, I should address this issue. I firmly believe that the double standard between boys and girls on moral issues has got to go.
Some commenters denied that cursing was a sin. Others said it should be expected of boys until they are civilized by their future wives. Let's look at this issue rationally, instead of just emotionally. What do the Bible and the Catechism say? What is the example of Christ? Why is this issue important?
