You Can Run But You Cannot Hide

The band, You Can Run But You Cannot Hide, is a "Christian" punk/rock band that has been stirring up some inadvertent controversy recently for its stance on Gay and Lesbian people and issues. This controversy has been brought on by the large political donation Target Corp made to Tom Emmer a Republican candidate for Governor of Minnesota. Tom Emmer has a relationship with the band and the allegations of the band asking for the death of Gay and Lesbian people has been splashed across the internet and mainstream headlines. In more favorable publications the "call to death" has been replaced with "strongly oppose", but the message of hate the band spreads is the same regardless of how it is phrased.
