Nun reads list of curse words to kids

GROSSE POINTE PARK, Mich.—Sister Kathy Avery won't put up with swearing on the playground at her school, and she's not above repeating the offending language to make sure everyone understands which words she won't tolerate.

The principal of St. Clare of Montefalco Catholic School had students stay after a Mass last month and informed the fifth- through eighth-graders that she has a zero-tolerance policy for cursing.

Just in case anyone wasn't sure what she was talking about, Avery read off a list of the very words and phrases that she was banning...

...Cuss words aren't the only things that set Avery off. She's also banned the words "stupid" and "boring."
Thank you, Sister!

I suspect, a number of us could learn from her, especially, when it comes to our thoughts.
