Dave Mustaine: 'I Don't Believe in Religion, I Have a Personal Relationship With God'
Megadeth mastermind Dave Mustaine recently touched on the subject of his faith, saying he doesn't in fact believe in religion. The singer/guitarist also stressed it's a private matter he doesn't want to push on anyone. "I don't think that my faith has anything to do with my lyrics," he told Nashville Scene. "I try and keep religion out of it. Frankly, for me, I don't believe in religion. I have a personal relationship with God and with Christ, and that's it. I don't push that on anybody; it's private. I kind of leave it there. Dave [Ellefson]'s real open about it. Bassist Dave Ellefson then commented that Mustaine's childhood was very different and more turbulent than his. "I do know that there's a proverb that says if you raise your children in the instruction of the Lord, if they stray, they will return," the bassist explained. During the rest of the chat, the frontman also discussed politics, pointing out that he considers all politicians as "the same monsters." "You've got all these politicians saying that they're your friends, and they're not," Dave said while explaining "Dance in the Rain" track off "Super Colider." "Republican, Democrat, whoever they are, they're all the same monsters, and they don't care about us. When they passed that bill exempting them off of Obamacare, that was the cherry on top of the cupcake for me. All I have to say is, 'I told you so.'" As the fourteenth Megadeth studio effort, "Super Collider" saw its release on June 4 through Tradecraft.
