Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oliver Sykes isn’t a subscriber to organized religion and has managed to upset more than a few of his Christian fans with the below rant he recently made via Instagram. Citing Exodus 21:20-21 (New American Standard Bible), Sykes commented with the following:
“It’s time to stop ignoring the plain truth & abolish organised religion. We all know what’s right & what’s wrong- we feel it in our heads & in our hearts. We don’t need a racist homophobic slave condoning hyped up Santa Claus to tell us how to be. The Bible approves trafficking humans, ethnic cleansing, slavery, selling brides, and for indiscriminate massacres on the reg.
Believing in god doesn’t make you a good person: true religion is in the life we lead & the actions we take, not in the creed we profess. #jesusslaves”
