The faith-based metal outfit Reformers posted their new lyric video for “Abomination” last week, but almost immediately took flak for writing and releasing a “homophobic” song, some even calling it a “publicity stunt.” Even Mediaskare took the time out to release a statement supporting, in general, the art of expression, and more specifically, a vote of confidence in the band.
