No. Disordered appetites do not make one a worse sinner than anybody else (said the man who knows rather a lot about disordered appetites from personal experience.) But only postmodernity has invented the idiotic strategy of trying to get everybody to pretend that disordered appetites are some glorious thing worth celebrating. There are far worse things than shame, such as shamelessness and foolish pride. The way out of shame is love, who does indeed love you no matter your weight. But it does not follow that obesity is good. Pride is the devil’s cheap substitute for love and love wants what is best for you.
