As far as it being evil, you just keep believing that if it floats your boat, but I think you need to consider other options. Which is more evil? Cursing someone who raped a child or performing a healing spell for someone dying of cancer when it only prolongs the suffering of one who is ready for their own death?
I think it's more evil to do the latter.
I don't think cursing or hexing and healing are opposite sides of the same coin at all. I think this saying is a moral justification made for a way of life by comparing two subjects that appear on the surface to be related but are not. If the person really meant "in order to heal you have to know disease" or "lightwork is best done by a balanced person" or "you have to understand the dark to fight with the light" then they would have said that. A witch that cannot curse cannot heal is a pat, immature, and false saying. It's something a 13 year old would feel cool touting.
If you want to be a witch and curse and or heal than just be it. Don't make up what amounts to a justification cheer.
