Catholic apologist Michael Voris answers this question very well:

Based on your posts you really don't care about what God thinks anyway.

Look at it like this;  you're preparing a perfect lasagna for God. (your soul)  You peel and seed the tomatoes for the sauce.  You peel and chop the garlic.  You carefully boil the noodles, you spend 1/2 an hour spreading the cheeses.  All to make the perfect gift for God.  Finally, after utmost preparation it's done and you plate it up.  Making sure everything is perfect.  Except there are 3 little mouse poops on the plate. (your sins)  Would you say, "oh well, He's so good He won't notice or say anything", or do you trash it and start again making sure everything really IS perfect for Perfection Itself?  Would you give "Ange" a plate with mouse poop on it?  Why would you do it to God? 

Not knowing "Ange", I think she is handing God a plate with a few more than 3 little mouse poops on it.  We are here in this world to know, love, and serve God to be happy with Him in the next.  Sure she's "helping" people, but what is she doing for God?  What are you doing for God?  That's the priority.  Try reading the book, The Four Last Things.  It could do you wonders.  And a few prayers for "Ange" might not hurt either.

Second that.  Finished not long ago.

Probably even better is Canon Arminjon's The End of the Present World.  Stunningly beautiful.  (Even Hell is beautiful, being that it is the manifestation of God's Perfect Justice.)

Pom, what changed for you that caused you to join this forum? I'm keeping an open mind here but I'm wondering what happened in less than two weeks that caused you to go from tweeting about the damn fish eaters and how much you despise trads to actually joining Fish Eaters?

"Ange" is probably a troll.

But someone who takes that much time out of the day to troll a traditionalist Catholic forum? No matter how much they might find it to be funny or a joke to debate with devout Catholics, that much time and energy to pull all this off usually points to a religious conflict and a desire to join the faith in the midst of personal conflict to church teaching.

As much as I'd like to get this girl off her Angelina kick,  I wouldn't go so far as to say that she is objectively in a state of mortal sin.  It may very well be that she, in the eyes of God, is not held fully responsible for her actions out of some extenuating circumstance like ignorance or total mental imbalance.

I'm pretty sure that the objectively qualifier means that she has committed gravely (mortally) sinful acts.  To say that she is actually in a state of mortal sin (had full knowledge and full consent of her will) one would use formally.  So Tim was indeed allowing for the possible absence of these necessary parts.

Ahh i see.  I didn't realize there was such a distinction between the two terms.  I guess you learn something new everyday.  My bad, Tim.
