  • Question of Faith from Julianne (email) – Hi Fr. Dave!  I’m a mom of two very active children who love playing and watching sports.  Recently at a basketball game my 11-year old son turned to me and asked whether booing was a sin.  I thought it was a really insightful question that recognized that the opposing team players (and referees/umpires!) are people, and that this is just a game; the booing or jeering is part of the performance of the sport. Or is it?  As much as we may not want a team to succeed, we don’t actually wish ill-will on them.  This question is more directed toward behavior at a professional sports game versus a youth sports game (where spectators usually cheer for both teams, or at least keep things positive – can’t speak for everyone here but that’s what we do).  Could you help clear this up for us please?  Thanks so much!
