An indie-pop band has canceled a show at Liberty University over comments made by the school’s President about gun violence. LANY band member Paul Jason Klein said they would pull out of the show after a Twitter user alerted him to comments Jerry Falwell, Jr. made in the wake of the San Bernardino shooting in 2015.
In the video, Falwell encouraged LU students to carry weapons on campus. He said, “I’ve always thought, if more people carried concealed weapons permits, then we could end those Muslims before they kill.”
A Twitter user shared the video and tagged Klein and the band so they would see it. In introducing the video, she said, “I was completely unaware about Liberty University & what they stand for as an institution & I’m hoping y’all are as well. please do not speak here. please do not perform here. please do not associate Lany with THIS.”

Klein responded, “this is disgusting. thanks for bringing it to my attention. lany stands for equality and togetherness only. we’re canceling x.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
