τὸ μωρόν | τὸ μῶρον -> foolishness, folly;

Do these have the same meaning? Bailly translates "τὸ μῶρον" as "impure desires" whereas Pape as "Torheit" (foolishness, folly)

Bailly must be following some ecclesiastical sin-as-foolishness tradition.  As far as I know, the common adjective is μωρός;  the properispomenon variant μῶρος is exclusively Attic.  Both are the same word.
