"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Is it a mortal sin to watch The Victoria Secret Fashion Show?



I'm just not sure.

Three things are necessary for mortal sin:  Grievous matter, sufficient reflection, and full consent of the will.

It might be just an occasion of sin for most.

And concrete evidence of really bad taste... that in itself is pretty damnable in my opinion.

FYI:  "Sexual addiction" or "porn addiction" - they are just clinical terms guys... not moral categories.  Really.  We have "free will".  The devil didn't "make you do it".  I already tried that excuse - doesn't work.

  1. I didn't watch it - I know my limitations.

    Sometimes.

  2. Haha, I didn't either, but it's totally the question I'd ask!

    In all seriousness, *obviously* there's an intent to arouse lust there ...
