I was arguing with this other deacon about whether monks are allowed to cut their beards or not. I said they are not allowed (I am not saying it is wrong or a sin, just not appropriate). But he kept telling me to be open minded because a lot of monks and Bishops cut their beards to make them look nice.
I know this is kind of random, but what do you guys think about this?
And why do they grow their beards any way?
