Never understood people writing off his new stuff because its too Christian. Has anyone even read any of his Thrice lyrics?

"And there's no greater love, than that one shed his blood for his friends"
Kensrue always did with Thrice what every good lyricist does, and blurred the line between his exact intention and universality in order to widen his audience. Look closely at almost the entirety of Vheissu alone, and you'll find it's weaved around adaptions of verses and scriptures. Even if you're not a person of faith, don't you still find it fascinating that a man can draw enough concept and soul from 2000 year old writings to head a masterpiece like this album is?

Image of the Invisible: Clearly about God and his children.
The Earth Will Shake: Acts 16:25-26
For Miles: John 15:13
Hold Fast Hope: story of Jonah and the whale.
Like Moths To Flame: blatant retelling of Peter's denial of Christ.
Of Dust And Nations: Matthew 6:19

Most people are writing it off because of the Mars Hill affiliation.

This is probably true. It depends on whether you believe someone is "the company [he] keeps." To me it's just strange. I've interviewed Dustin before and had a very long and insightful conversation. In addition, everything I've ever read nor scene even hints at the idiocy of Mark Driscoll. It makes it even weirder that I know several people who either attend the church or serve on staff and they are all well-adjusted, coherent, and thoughtful people.

Side-note: Read on Emery's blog the other day a couple of them also serve as musician's at Mar Hill. Very interesting.

Yep. It's usually either that or a general disinterest in worship music.

For some reason, people have been trying to twist that in order to say some confusing variation of "if you don't like this, you don't like Christians and/or Thrice"

Yeah, it's definitely more about the fact that we don't want to give our money to a hate group like Mars Hill as opposed to a dislike for Christianity or worship music. I am no longer Christian, but even when I was I did not care for this organization. I know many currently practicing Christians who do not like Mars Hill or their message. My love for Dustin and Thrice do not trump the fact that I do not want my money going to such an organization.

Writing music that has themes of Christianity or religion that you can find when you dig through the lyrical content is far from "11 songs with robust gospel centered lyrics to rally and encourage the church."

This album is not for me. And it really sucks.
