The description of Cloistered Cleric states:
The cloistered cleric spends more time than other clerics in study and prayer and less in martial training. He gives up some of the cleric's combat prowess in exchange for greater skill access and a wider range of spells devoted to knowledge (and the protection of knowledge).
If building a Gestalt character, even though I believe it would be within RAW to allow one "side" to be a Cloistered Cleric and the other a Fighter or fighter variant, it feels a bit cheesy to me. The CC gives up some combat abilities in exchange for more skill points and skills, but if they're a gestalt with a fighter class then they're not really giving up anything.
If you would allow this, how would you justify and/or role-play it? (How can I be a character who on the one hand eschews martial training, and on the other hand is training in a martial class on the side?)
