FOR TODAY Comment On Guitarists Anti-Gay Remarks; Other Musicians React Unpleasantly…

For Today have been under a sea of controversy, since last night's tweet outburst by guitarist Mike Reynolds condemning homosexuality as a sin. The band tried to play spin control by releasing a message, but I'm not sure if this makes things any better:

For Today has always and will always be a band that is about loving people, we have no hatred towards any people regardless of what they believe or how they live. We may not agree on everything but Jesus loves you and died for you. And so would we.
Blessings, For Today

Stick To Your Guns drummer George Schmitz:

This Is Hell, collectively:

Touche Amore:

The Ghost Inside vocalist Jonathan Vigil:

Counterparts:

And, Enter Shikiri posted a massive rant.

All responses pale in comparison to regular Livecast called, "StoneCold Steve Austin:"
