I think I'll live. I'm pretty skinny--about 125#. I live a very active lifestyle. I don't need doctors who don't know what the heck they're talking about in the first place poking around at me.

The top offenders:

McDonalds
Dairy Queen
Burger King
Pizza Hut
Dominos

I bet most folk who oppose gay marriage enjoy going to at least one of these resaurants.

One can eat at McDonalds w/out being a glutton. One cannot engage in homosexuality w/out sinning.

What does fast food have to do with religion? Did the pope say don't eat whoppers or something?

So in other words,

Fuddruckers = okay (maybe)
Fudgepacker = sin


Got it.
