TR/Religious rant

Postby skorpeo » Tue Aug 24, 2010 1:27 am

mmitten put up a trip report/religious rant. It seemed inappropriate.

http://www.summitpost.org/trip-report/217262/mmitten.html

Is this the correct spot for this?

Not to defend him, because I don't, but if the reason for his post was a kkk clubhouse that freaked him out and not a monastery would you still have found it offensive?

Seems to me that one would be more suitable for PnP!

Dumb trip report, but he's entitled to his rant on his page. I see nothing over the top there.

Well, it's not a trip report. It's simply a gripe-it probably belonged in the Colorado forum somewhere. Whatever it is, I agree with Bob it's not over the top. Hopefully, he will make the right inferences from the 1/10 vote on the submission. On the other, he may only conclude the vote is from a postmodernistic relativist.

Hey, thanks for the comments. I'm hiking Crestone peak on Saturday. I find a wide variety of trip reports very useful. A rant not related to hiking I do not.

I'm really looking forward to the hike its been on my mind for a few years.

As for religious institutions appropriating summit access, he may want to avoid the following Christian sites


I'm not agreeing with the rant, but it seems the rant was about the monestary blocking public access to the mountains (it's at the mouth of the canyon and blocks the mountains behind).

The ones above in your photos that I'm familiar with don't block public access to the summits.

I agree that the rant really isn't a trip report.

We all know we evolved from fish whether we climb mountians or not. Put your shit on the summit if you want but it doesn't make it any more important.

Oh, oh. This is morphing into a thread on Climbing and Religion. This can't be good. I'll be relieved if the thread aborts before the second page.

I know several people in Texas that believe people lived with Jesus horses, less than 10000 years ago. The same people that gave us George W. Bush.

Not a joke.

Perhaps some have resorted to trip reports to get around topics that would be deleted in the forums. :lol:
