For today has always and will always be a band that is about loving people, we have no hatred towards any people regardless of what they believe or how they live. We may not agree on everything but Jesus loves you and died for you. And so would we.
Blessings, For Today
This scene has always and will always be about acceptance. Homophobia and intolerance have no place here. Unity isnt just a hashtag. This isnt a platform for extremism and ignorance. Read lyrics. Fully understand what bands youre supporting with your hard earned dollars. Dont perpetuate hate, myth, and intolerance. Fucking evolve.
