        I told Jack that while his intention was good he should speak to me or his mother before saying anything to an adult in our company. But I can't fault his impulse. He was concerned for both the mother and the son.

          Awkward. I'd likely have said "He's remiss, but he has a good heart in the admonishment for both you and your child. I'll have a talk with him."

          I'd think the woman must have known or else she'd not have responded negatively but rather "you may be right" or at least "cute kid you've got there."

            We were passing in a strong current, so the whole matter was over in short order and I aimed my "activist" remark in the same general direction. The reasonable way to be done with it would be a nod or a laugh. Advice from a seven year old, sage or not, is easily enough dismissed by an adult. But then, not everyone with a child is equal to the label.

            I mostly feel sorry for that four year old.

                      I added, "My seven year old, the activist," thinking that would likely draw a chuckle or at least a context for understanding. Instead, the young woman declared my son rude before dropping a bit of language I won't repeat and informing me that her four year old was better behaved.


                      Surprised for the second time, I offered as evenly as I could, "You're smoking and cursing around that four year old." And then we were well beyond her and whatever else she might have said or considered was lost.
                      That's just the sort of thing that occurs when we prosecute light sins as grave ones (e.g., Mormons, Muslims, Orthodox Jews, fundamentalist Christians). Smoking and swearing around children are light sins, if they are sins at all. Children scolding adults engaged in light sins is light sin also. There's blame enough to go around here, but all of it's light.

                          As a victim of secondhand smoke with weak lungs, I beg to differ. It isn't about religion at that point but I'm sure you can recognize this on a health level. Sins against our bodies, might be considered 'light' I guess on a spiritual level though. I'm trying to wrap my head around this from both perspectives....it seems damaging a child's lungs is the important issue. The swearing is negative emoting and lashing out as well?
                          Could it be it expresses issues of the soul rather than being merely a 'light' sin as well?

                            OK, point taken.

                            There are many grave sins explicitly mentioned in the Bible, and there are some that we know and accept as grave that are not mentioned there (e.g., pornography, masturbation, abortion), but that the Church has always uniformly taught is grave matter. Grave sins deserve severe penalties, such as scolding and exhortation, exclusion from communion, and even up to and including irreversible excommunication for the gravest of sins, such as murder and rape.

                            A light sin is light inherently, independent of intent. While grave sins can be counted as light in an eternal sense by the Lord (when they are not done with complete freedom of choice), a light sin cannot rise to the level of a grave sin regardless of intent. Though there are sins like lying, where the resultant damage/harm done determines the gravity of the lie. So maybe that is where the issue of second hand smoke locates.

                              Yeah, I don't think we agree on the scolding. If Jack has to float through it then he has a right to speak to it, especially given his motivation is for the welfare of others... What I talked to him about was the point of raising an issue, the efficacy. I said that the problem is that it usually ends with the other party either paying lip service at best or becoming defensive and negative at worst. There's little gain in the effort. He understood.

                              • Mrs. Barbarian and I were teaching a class on photographing still lifes. We had brought various things so people could set up interesting arrangements, using a pool table nearby as a place to put the objects not being used.

                                Mrs. B saw some apparently randomly placed things on the table, pulled a single light over, and...
