Hi Everyone. My teenaged nephew wants to get his ear pierced and asked me if there’s any religious argument against doing it. I am STUMPED. I don’t know that the Catholic faith counsels specifically against it – personally, I prefer males to not wear earrings, even little diamond studs, but is there any teaching I can share to show that it is inappropriate or is it just one of those things left to culture?
Thanks in advance for any advice – I’d like to answer him as soon as possible (and hopefully convince him not to do it.)
