Minus the Protest

Posted by - 10:26 PM on 11/28/10
Last night at their show in Orlando, FL, Minus The Bear had their first religious protest ever. They handled the situation by surrounding the religious group with drums and other percussion instruments to drown them out. Head to the replies for the videos.

geez i don't get these people. i'm (roughly) a christian, and i would never behave that way. it creates a stigma that i now have to be prepared to defend against for the rest of my life.

Because the "other" people will protest anything.

That was just awkward to watch. Why would Minus the Bear be protested by a religious group?

This is awful. I'm a Christian, and I really enjoy Minus the Bear. I hate when people do this stuff "in the name of Christ and/or God". Are these the same people who were protesting soldier funerals?

Why the hell are they protesting Minus The Bear? These people are stupid enough to protest anyone, but fuck, those guys mind their own business and write pretty harmless music.
