Great move by this guy. Showing respect for everyone that has issues with what happened. This band can only get better without that guy holding them back.

damn he's going to be dicked around hard by giving out his number.

I guess this is an adequate way to approach this shit storm. HE seems pretty genuine.

Mattie seems like a sincere dude who uses his beliefs in a positive way. Nice to see him taking the religion and arguments out of the statements and addressing the problem as a moral one.

I hope not. People can be dicks, but not always.

Can't believe he gave his number out. Cool of him to handle the situation like this and be so open about it.

I sure hope Mike is a little nicer when he comes across some gay Middle Easterners.
