Since I don’t know much about the SSPX, I decided to look around their website to learn about them (from them).
In reading about the Third Order of the SSPX, I noticed that they encourage habitual abstinence from television because it can put you in a near occasion of sin considering all of the indecent pictures. I don’t really disagree with this; I imagine I could get a lot more accomplished if I stopped watching tv, and I probably would not expose myself to indecency as much.
But then I wonder: should I give up everything that puts me in a near occasion of sin? For example, should I stop bowling in my Friday night bowling leagues because of the indecently dressed women/girls that are also bowling there? Should I change my shopping habits to minimize contact with indecently dressed women?
I’m not trying to be sarcastic; I genuinely want to know. Do you traditionalists just stop doing things if they can put you in a near occasion of sin? Should I be doing this as well?
