Maybe he has suppressed gay feelings that he doesn't know what to do with. Kind of like Michelle Bachman's gay husband running an establishment that "ungays" people

Don't really care what some random metalcore douche thinks about being gay, and a Christian at the same time.

This is close to my feelings as well on the subject.
The problem is calling it "homophobia" can almost be seen as an excuse. It's not a phobia. They're just assholes who hate gay people. It's the same class as racism. And fuck 'em.

Fuck this band. Don't care if it's his opinion or not, it's archaic and he preaches this bullshit to an audience.

Ouch to the tweets but even more so to their fans.

"I swear there's so many f****** every time a Christian band posts a status. Does one have to approve of homosexuality? I'm not even religious and I find it morally debased. Why is it such a big deal to be against it? It's not like the band is going out of their way to harass or assault homosexuals, one member just does not agree with it. Get a life and stop expecting everyone to embrace homosexuality."

i might be wrong, but i dont really think that when he said those things that he was coming from a "hateful" place as much as he was simply stating his beliefs ( whether they be right or wrong), the same way the majority of posters are expressing their beliefs in this thread. Also didnt really see him condemning anyone, as much as stating what his religion says about homosexuality ( again regardless of whether it is wrong or right)

Ahh, tell that to all the gay pedophile priests

This. I'm a Christian and a fan of the band but this is ludicrous. It's time to change a few of the old teachings to adapt for today's more diverse public. The bigger problem is how much a joke American religion is becoming. If there isn't some tupe of contreversy then there's the legions of these new age churches popping up that are more a spectacle and business than a real, tradiational, European rooted place of worship.

Heh, I like some of the responses on my timeline:

Danielle: @jason_tate @mikefortoday that's great. Considering having tattoos is considered a sin and he has a ton of them...

People who pull small, random verses out of the Bible to support, large over-arching issues aren't helping their cause

Meh... musician says something controversial... nothing new.

We should really be focusing our anger on why Moonrise Kingdom and The Dark Knight Rises were so overlooked for the Oscar nominations instead.

Indeed.

This is close to my feelings as well on the subject.

I think people throw around the word "homophobe" too easily. I know some people who are, indeed, homophones, but I think someone who expresses their opinion (I'm not saying I agree or disagree with this guy, that's not the point) about a subject doesn't make that person an extremist as the the word "homophobe" implies.
