“Liberals believe that what consenting adults do in bed with their bodies is immune from moral judgment. Social conservatives recognize the falsity of this view, understanding that immoderation in sexual matters corrupts individual character and can have deleterious social consequences. Yet for some reason, this insight fails us when it comes to what we do with our bodies at the table, and we react to criticism, however thoughtful, as hysterically as any Left Coast libertine denied a guilt-free canoodle. The real enemy is the conviction that we can live without limits on our appetites. Ideas have consequences; so do microwave burritos and all-you-can-eat buffets.”
