Mission work in the middle east? What a stupid idea. First talking shit on gay people, now going to a region that isn't known for their hospitality to try to convert them to Christianity? Good luck.

Ignorant, yeah. But it's the right direction to move in. Racial tolerance took a while too, and we're clearly in the middle of a pivot-generation with regards to attitudes about homosexuality. Guys like Matt Montgomery don't need to be vilified IMO, not even slightly.

Maybe he just wants the challenge?

I'm sure they mostly agree that homosexuality constitutes a sin, but there's a difference between holding that belief and doing, saying, or agreeing completely with what the guitarist tweeted.

Good riddance to Reynolds, and a really nice response from Montgomery. Hopefully he doesn't get (m)any idiots abusing his gesture to talk over the phone.

While you're right, it's a starting point. Lets not deflect the situation on to someone who's trying to make up and make things right for his ignorant ex-guitar players mishaps.

I was going to say "what Keagan said" but you seemed to not understand him either.
To put it in plainer English, your original statement was unnecessarily inflammatory, and it seems that both Keagan and I saw little purpose in your making it.

This was completely unintentional
That's the best part!


I skimmed through the guitarist's statement... glad he "clarified" and I'm sure that most people understood what he meant to say (or should have said instead of the batshit rant), but he had a pretty hateful tone in those tweets. I don't see him recovering.
