Michele Obama and obesity

Michele Obama is on a campaign to fight obesity. I find it a bit ironic that the Obama's oppose behavior leading to death from obesity, but promote behavior leading to death from AIDS.

After all, why should it be any more acceptable to criticize fat people than it is to criticize gay people? Maybe fat people overeat because of genetic factors. Maybe they were born that way. Who is to say that overeating is wrong--who are they to judge?

Maybe fatophobic bigots like the Obamas need to stop their hateful anti-obesity campaigns and be more tolerant of alternative lifestyles, like overeating!

OR, maybe they should just be consistent and oppose all unhealthy behaviors, whether those behaviors lead to obesity or AIDS.

(For those interested in losing weight, I would recommend Livestrong.com by the Lance Armstrong foundation. I've been using it for about a year and a half and have lost 82 pounds).

On a related note, an Obama adviser is standing by his remark that the Pope is hurting people in the name of Jesus. This is because the Pope does not support the use of condoms to slow the spread of AIDS.

In other words, the Pope believes that anal sex is sin and should not be practiced. If everyone followed the Pope's advise, no one would die due to AIDS contracted from anal sex.

Obama's adviser, on the other hand, encourages people to continue practicing anal sex with a condom which is not a surefire prevention of AIDS. That means that many people will continue to get AIDS by following this adviser's advice.

And somehow he thinks that it is the Pope who is hurting people!

Could the Left possibly be any more out of touch?
