Rewording CCC 2258

As a spiritual exercise and an Examen for Holy Thursday, a day that truly speaks to one of the basic causes of my own gluttony, I offer this rewording of CCC 2258:

"The number of men and women who have deep-seated eating disorders is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided.

Are you willing to let fat people die because you're afraid to tell them that they are fat? After all, the well known effects of Cholesterol are at least as dangerous as HIV.

Written by a man who is struggling with a sudden upswing in weight after the age of 40- who also wasn't exactly thin in his 30s, or in fact, hasn't seen ideal weight since age 26.
