Is this the proper use of the word "cowardice"?

Asked by creepypastagirl (234 points ) March 4th, 2014

”... than that of an ignorant, disrespectful, closed-minded, cowardice adult.”

Is the word “cowardice” used in proper context?
(This isn’t for homework, I’m having a run-in with a rude anon on Tumblr)
If it isn’t the correct context, what form of the word could I replace it with?

“Cowardice” is a noun. “His unwillingness to help the wounded was an act of cowardice.”

The adjective is “cowardly. “He behaved in a cowardly manner.”

”...than that of an ignorant, disrespectful, closed-mindeded, cowardly man.”
