Christian metal band Reformers (No “the”, just “Reformers”.) are catching all kinds of hell after releasing a culturally tone-deaf single railing against homosexuality titled “Abomination”. With a title referencing Leviticus and lyrics advising listeners that “tolerance is hate” and warning them that they’ll be called bigots if they judge “twisted love” it’s hard to imagine that it’s about anything else, but lead singer Andrew Backlin is doing a lot of back-pedaling.
In a video posted to the band’s Facebook page, Backlin has said that the song isn’t “singling out homosexuals” and that the song is against all “sin.” He also said that he loves everyone and has no hate in his heart. Here’s the video with lyrics. Following the jump you can watch Backlin’s explanation. See what you think.
