Some trads recommed never attending the OF and to only attend the Extraordinary Form (aka TLM), but the Church requires us to assist at Mass in a Catholic rite every Sunday, so if the OF is all that's available and you DON'T go, you are still committing a mortal sin.

Yes, I do understand.  I've come across some traditionalists who say to not attend an NO Mass, no matter what, but as you have said, the Church says it is valid and I certainly have no authority to say otherwise.

We discussed that in this thread, recently.

Different traddies take different takes on the matter.

I won't re-hash the discussions, but the argument is more than just about validity, since even a "Black Mass" is "valid".

Educate yourself and your conscience, then decide what you need to do to nourish your Faith and protect it.

A "Black Mass" is not "valid," because it's not a Mass in any true sense. It is a satanic mockery-copy of a Mass in which stolen Hosts consecrated from a true Mass are desecrated. So unless you have a different definition of a "Black Mass," whatever you're saying doesn't make any sense.

It's not debatable; a trad Catholic who obstinately refuses to go to an Ordinary Form Mass on a holy day of obligation when that is his only option, still objectively commits a mortal sin, under normal circumstances (emphasis here).

I sincerely believe that any trad who thinks otherwise has a mentality no different than a Protestant, picking and choosing their private interpretation ("consciense") of Church teaching. Canon law does not say "the faithful are bound to assist at Mass in a Catholic rite on Sundays and other holy days of obligation, unless those with an informed consciense feel that the only available Mass in their area does not conform to their personal liturgical tastes and beliefs, and therefore are dispensed from the obligation to attend Mass."

As long as we're talking about the average OF Mass as celebrated in the US...
