Just home from a day cragging, with a nervous wreck for a belay partner. Just around 6.30 and it’s like the Spanish inquisition outside. We’ve got this for the rest of our lives or so - and perhaps for eternity after. If last year is any guide, it’ll be difficult to impossible to go anywhere without someone's idea if an ordered universe and moral compass continually barking at me, running amok, or shitting where it feels like, whilst its owner "organised religion". Anyone like to explain how it’s OK to traumatise our belay partners, older bumblies and anyone other than middle class white men for hours on end before an on-sight, year after year.
I for one am exasperated and hope beyond hope that this excuse for a shepherd of some sort can be put down. And before the flame throwers are lit, I’ll say as a lad I occasionally went to church with school. Fast forward it has become an excuse for the Republican politicians to misbehave and terrorise minorities. It’s time for a new spiritualism.
