For Today lose van/trailer

2013-02-11 by Kit Brown | 130 Comments
Christian metalcore band For Today have reported that both their van and trailer, along with all of their equipment, has been stolen in San Antonio. The band released a statement on Facebook saying:

"Some nerd stole our van and trailer (and a couple hundred-thousand dollars of equipment) from our hotel parking lot last night. So now we’re rolling to Houston in rental cars. They can steal our stuff, but they can’t touch our joy! Jesus Reigns! (Unshakeable). Get pumped."

For Today is currently on tour with Memphis May Fire, The Word Alive, Upon A Burning Body, and Gideon.

Hate the band, but no one should have their shit stolen. Also, I can't be the only one scratching their head over the "estimated cost" of their gear. How fancy do you need to be to play shitty metalcore? A guitar and a Line6 Spyder amp should be enough.

i'm pretty much as far from a homophobe as you can get without actually being gay, but these people
that just aggressively white knight gay people to the point of basically bullying anyone who disagrees
with them are just as bad as the actual homophobes. some people need to learn that not everyone is
always going to agree with their beliefs, that's just life. just like their should be tolerance for
gay people, there should be tolerance for those who for whatever reason, be it religion or whatever
else, choose peacefully disagree with the homosexual lifestyle, regardless of how much they or i or
anyone else may disagree with them.

people fail to realize that this country has a long standing history of christianity which is
opposed
to homosexual actions. it's not fair to compare it to racism because that was purely a social
problem
and not a religious one. i think that this country is making progress in terms of equality for
homosexuals, my state (washington) legalized gay marriage in november, and i exercised my right to
vote for gay marriage rather than acting hostile to people such as my 78 year old catholic
grandmother
who does not share the same beliefs as me. change happens slowly, the current generation is far more
accepting of homosexuality than the previous generation. we should teach kids that there's nothing
wrong with being gay instead of trying to change the minds of those were were raised to have
different
beliefs and are not about to change their minds anytime soon.

Stop judging a band for what one guy said. Besides, if you've actually met anyone in this band you'd know they are some of the nicest guys and don't hate anyone. That's actually pretty much the opposite of what the band preaches. They're against the marriage between two people of the same sex, but they don't hate homosexuals. Get to know someone before you bash them for what you think you know about them
