I’m not sure if this is the right section of the forums for this, but here it goes.
Months ago I was on Yahoo to check my email and saw in the “news” section of the site an article that contained a video from their own miniseries. This video contained sexual/pornographic material. I clicked on it on purpose, but before I went any further I pressed the back button and checked my email. When I clicked on it it counted as a “view.” And therefore supported this type of “article”. Was this a sin? I would argue that yes it was because any direct support of something like that is wrong, but than I would also argue the opposite way. That it was not a sin because in the end my one “view” couldn’t make any difference either way and had I not clicked on it the same amount of articles like this would be made as have been made since I clicked on it. Also, would this be a sin of grave matter if it is a sin? I did not confess this in my last confession because I was unsure of whether or not it was a sin, but if it was grave matter I would like to include it in my next confession.
Thanks for your time and answers,
