Maybe I am misunderstanding the fact that custom and reality are in a different realm here. I would not ever disrespect my friends in telling them that they are fat as being a customary fact if they are so... that to me it is disrespectful, period.
respect, manners, and courtesy have their way of making it around those that do not view the same way of thinking,

I also find it hard to understand people that you can tell claim to be strong readers, and yet have failed to read the most prominent book in human history, which is the Bible. I personally don't agree with everything that is written in the Bible to be honest, but I at least would like to read the whole thing eventually to be able to understand a book that has had a large part in shaping our culture.
