Default Re: Moralistic panic over weight (article)

"Traditional" is a loaded word, or can be. Mr. Campos was speaking of the traditions of the United States, where the first seekers of religious freedom were Calvinist Puritans, for whom the flesh was a snare of evil -- a sentiment repackaged for today by the weight-loss industrial complex.
