Why is orthodoxy so lenient on gluttony?

My priest is in the room next door on his 3rd bottle of wine right now, I mean god bless his soul, but that's not the right thing to do, one might as well have an orgy on their wedding night

    Why not focus on your own sins first?

      Because the church is a collective, not a random group of individuals, this guy is supposed to be responsible for my soul and I'm supposed to confess to him about my gluttony, when he himself is a glutton? It makes no sense.

        If you're a fat glutton, clean yourself up and pray for him. When you're in confession, ask him how to deal with gluttony. That'll likely lead him to shame, and if he refuses to deal with it, that's on him. But maybe you'll prompt him to think about his life decisions.

          >If you're a white male, ackno your privilege and make him an ally. When you're in a dialogue with him, ask him how to deal with his privilege. That'll likely lead him to shame, and if he refuses to deal with it, that's on him. But maybe you'll prompt him to think about his life decisions.

            Then call your priest out and look like the fricking spaz you are. If you're a fat moron, lose some damn weight and do what Jesus says to do. Don't you get it? Even the Pharisees, whom he condemned, he said to listen to, because they had authority, but he also said not to do as they do. But you, oh wise Christian, you cannot follow the simple instructions of your savior. You are an unbeliever and a pretender, you defile the mysteries of the Church with your haughtiness. Repent!

            >Then call your friends out and look like the fricking chud you are. If you're a white male, pay some damn reparations and do what BIPOC say to do. Don't you get it? Even the US government, whom they condemned, they said to listen to, because they had authority, but they also said not to do as they do. But you, oh wise leftist, you cannot follow the simple instructions of your oppressed. You are a colonizer and oppressor, you defile the mental health of POCs with your privilege. Reparashuns!
            Now that I think about it, it's better to leave this proto-leftist religion

            You claim there's enough division in the church between the faithful and the priesthood, whose spiritual ancestors were martyred for opposing the pharisees, for them to be equated to pharisees themselves, which is ridiculous.

            >privilege
            Privilege is real, but if you are in a nice western culture, complaining about white privilege, then you are a nazi. Instead, recognize your western privilege, and go out to the other countries, and lift them up. If all you want, is for your nation to look after you, and you don't care about other countries, then you are literally a national socialist (nazi).

          Dude, he has authority in the church, he's supposed to set an example, that's the whole reason why he's celibate, it's not a matter of him or me as individuals, but the church as a whole, we are all supposed to be one.

    It's the most ridiculous sin, the most decadent untampered with food is often the most nutritious.

    Because gluttony being a mortal sin is from a fiction book and not in the Bible.

          Drunkenness is a form of gluttony. I'm sure your mutt belly will disagree but it is a sin

            Drunkenness is an element of the set of actions called gluttony, but it is not the set itself.

            So you agree that poisoning your mutt body with fast food and liquor is destroying the temple that god has given to you?

        Yes this is the default "do everything I say because I judge all that is acceptably good and bad for the body". Literally existing doing anything or nothing is bad for the body. You people are dweebs. You sitting here typing on your computer is bad for the body.
