Total bullshit. Some people need to focus on things that really matter instead of just making it difficult for bands to do what they want.

It's good that they're taking the high road. But I don't think this should have been that big of an issue in the first place. Maybe that's just me though.
I agree, yeah. I can see why people MAY have an issue with government funds going towards what they see as an open mockery of their religion, but I doubt that those complaints would have gained any traction in the US.

releasing an album titled "holy shit" and mocking the bible is hardly taking the high road. and how in any way was that not intended to be offensive?
The "high road" comments are obviously in regards to the band's apology and the decision to return FACTOR's money. And in that respect, I definitely do think they took the route of "being the bigger person", so to speak. The complaints really had no fair grounds - art, no matter how provocative or intentionally offensive (for example, this album cover), is still art.

Glad they didn't apologize for the actual content and only said sorry in regards to FACTOR being involved. Record is great. Band is amazing.
This.

It's only offensive to squares. As a Relient K fan, you seem to be a prime example.
LOL, love it.

The band shouldn't suffer financially because some wimpy morons are offended. This news saddens me.

Religion:
Christian

cool story, bro.

People need to lighten up. Listen to the album. Zero religious references.

Cool of the band to do this, but fuck the people who are worrying about it. Makes me hate religion even more.

Hope this gained the band a few more fans. And I'm glad I bought the preorder package.
How is anything he said wrong? And you quoted his religion as if it was some huge mystery as to why he would find it offensive? The people that need to lighten up aren't the people that are offended by the artwork because it denegrates their religion to such a great degree, its the people that say stuff like "get the fuck over it, you ignorant christian asshole! God, why are you so intolerant?!" Too bad ap.net seems to be filled with the latter.

This is SUCH a Canadian pussy move, and exactly why this shitty country should be taken over and made the 51st state. America's hat, indeed.
