Oratory closes for too many swear words

Broken nets, garbage abandoned inside but above all profanity and swearing spoiled the atmosphere of the oratory. For this reason Don Franz Vicentini, pastor of St. Joseph’s Church in Cocciano, one of Frascati’s (Roma) most populous neighborhoods, closed the oratory. Parents liked the decision; I wonder if it was only other people’s children who manifested these behaviors.

What are the role models for these young people? The soccer players who constantly complain to referees or the coaches who use their role to express themselves violently? Or the bully friends?

Young people are responsible for their actions. Who, however, are their teachers? Who provides them with the standard behaviors to act ethically?
