“Stop posting about a non-Christian rap label. I’m so sick of these ashamed anti-christs.”
“I won’t buy another Reach Records album ever again. I lost all respect for them.”
“They’ve updated their statement from 116 to 666: “From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him.” John 6:66″

with Collision Records CEO Adam Thomason in the
city of Doha, Qatar’s capital, where the host said is

behind their computers and phones in America — criticized a fellow Christian for being ashamed of
the gospel as he preached in the Middle East
