Rude refers to behaving disgracefully or shamefully and thus is an admonition against sexual misconduct.

to not confuse love and lust, Love is not rude but lust is

Also is against all pornography, form of false intimacy

Respect the commandments of God

love and lust are opposites on all points.

love has nothing to do with crude or foul in speech:

1 we are called to righteousness

2 desacralizes what is sacred, our sexuality

3 contributes to misconduct as it make sin feel at home

4 weakens inhibition and resistance to temptations

Love is not ambitious

Charity is not ashamed because it is not ambitious

Luke 19:10 come to seek the sinners

St Basil love of Christ did not reject harlots and washed feet

John Chrysostom charity knows not what dishonor or disgrace she covers with her wings of gold all our sins

proverbs Love covers over a multitude of sins

Sweeps sins under the rug

Love is not rude in that it helps us to forgive, let go of offenses
