This caloric deluge creates a diabetic condition wherein the spiritual diabetic suffers a great thirst for all things spiritual but never enjoys any lasting satisfaction.

    There you go, using “diabetic” as a condemnatory label! I will harass you until you affirm me in my glucosity, you cowardly fence-sitting transfatty!
