The Pope has stated that gays should not be marginalized or discriminated upon.

This is good news.

Maybe they will allow gays and women into priesthood someday. It's pretty dumb that they don't already.

Sorry to dredge up an old OT thread, but this is remarkable.

I'm not religious, but I'm stoked to hear this news.

Sully, I didn't know that.

Your TR was great! You seem like a very kind, compassionate, and understanding person.

Thanks for being you!

I'm related to and friends with a number of gay people. It is no different to me than a traditional heterosexual relationship. They love each other, and that's what is important.

Maybe someday I'll find love as well. I personally am attracted to women, but I respect love in all of its manifestations.

Long live love! It's a beautiful thing!

Sullly, that may not have been a Cmac action...

I've noticed some TR's go into the Trip Reports Only room and disappear from the general thread flow at some point. Whether it's an automatic programming or an arbitrary thing I don't know.

Haha, romantic love?

What planet are you on? Give me half-ropes and pitons any day.

As far as the TR thing disappearing, I've seen that too with TRs of all sorts. Not sure why it does that.

I'm on planet earth dude. I respect all people. Shouldn't you do the same?

Respect is the basis of a good, honest life.

the trip reports universally share a short life
upon the front page. the get the spotlight
for a few days then disappear until someone
remarks on them.

im sure this wasn't specific to your nice trip report, sully.

B, I think you misread me.

You said love is a beautiful thing. I asked if you meant romantic love (which I think you do).

The only thing beautiful about romantic love is the children that are often produced by it. Other than that, it's lost money/time/etc either during or after while you recover.

I hope you find comfort in your love of climbing, because so far - it's the best.

Burchey,

I know a great number of people who feel romantic love for people of the same sex. It makes me smile to see them gazing lovingly at each other.

Love is love, it transcends gender.

Love only means procreation if you're religious. If you're a kind human who respects people, love can be between a man and a man or a woman and a woman.

As I've said before, I am attracted to women, but I acknowledge and respect the love that same sex couples share. It's natural for people to find love with others of the same sex. It has been happening for millennia, marginalizing or criminalizing it is wrong. Period.

B,

Are you disagreeing with me? Because it's like you're reading words that I'm not writing.

Man/Woman/whatever. I'm not saying anything about that. I'm saying romantic love is a waste of time in general. Go climb something, you'll reap far greater rewards and miss out on a lot of funk.

Trust me. Whatever small bit you miss out on by forgoing a relationship can be mostly replaced by good friendships and the love you feel for them and family.

Of course, there are those tax breaks or whatever.

My lady and I have an open relationship. She's 100% lesbo. And a gold star. We love each other.

Ok Burchey, I think I get your point, but discounting romance is super cynical.

Haven't you ever fallen in love with someone?

Brandon,

I have been in love. Many times, of different levels of intensity. Even was married for a while. I had passion and chemistry with one woman that was so crazy, Iím probably actually set for the rest of my days. In my opinion, for an independent person (which it would seem most climbers would/should be) romantic love would ultimately be a detriment, especially if you were trying to dedicate any reasonable amout of time to the pursuit. Probably one way around it would be to only date women (or men) that climb on your level. Iím not attracted to climbers, I like girly-girls, so Iím hosed in that regard. Even still Ė being in a relationship requires you to give up a big portion of yourself, which in my opinionÖisnít worth it. Of course, for the .0000001% of people that find their ďsoul-mateĒ at age 10 and are together for 90 years, the whole dealing with breakup/recovery/possible financial funk isnít that much of an issue. For the rest of us, it is.

Norton, if the only thing youíre doing is sweating and grunting, that actually sounds like one of my old relationships. Thatís not what Iím up to, Iím trying to see beautiful parts of the world, climb interesting peaks and routes, live on the fly. Thatís romantic to me. This isnít a troll Ė your post is much less valuable than mine.

Brandon-, wonder why Cmac keeps closeting my gay wedding TR to the trip report section only, erasing it from the forum twice. Another poster (friend) alerted me to this.

sully that suck's! Cmac has his favorito's...

We'll let who can piss the farthest remain contentious.

In the meantime a true civil rights issue involves Vodka. It seems Russia cares about what people chew on concerning each other. No one else cares but they do.

So, if you are gay and if you are straight, stop consuming Russian vodka in protest of their nation state's clampdown on private behavior, expressed in public.

The Russians won WWII for every one while we weren't looking. Now in freedom from Communism, they seem to think they can stamp out nascent behavior by writing stuff on paper and making the cops oblige.

BOYCOTT RUSSIAN VODKA AS A PROTEST IN FAVOUR OF HUMAN RIGHTS !

Your girlfriend will, or should consider it a sexy gesture...

Jim,
I just heard about that yesterday from a friend who is a bartender in Brooklyn.

She told me that over 200 NYC bars are boycotting Russian vodka.

I know, 200 bars in NYC isn't many, but maybe it will send a message.

Meanwhile, in Uganda...
