Language wars? Aren't there newsgroups and forums for that kind of thing?

Generally, the same kind of arguments for each language family apply
to compilers as anywhere else. With the added factor that LLVM itself
is written in C++, so if you use anything different you're likely to
suffer from mismatching expectations unless your FFI has had a lot of
work put in.
