frontman Dave Mustaine
was recently asked to clarify his past comments against gay marriage, now insisting he was misunderstood.
Chatting with Mohr Stories
podcast, Dave also touched on the matter of Christianity, adding that the Christian faith comes with a bad reputation these days. Asked about how he found God, the frontman replied:"I think being a Christian has a bad name. I think that when you say you're a Christian, people think that you're anti-gay, which I'm not. I'm not gay, so..."When the question came up that started all this, someone had said 'What do you think I think about gay rights?,' and I said, 'Dude, I'm a heterosexual man, I'm married. The gay rights fight doesn't have anything to do with me,'"
Mustaine continued (via MetalSucks
). "So, being a sh-tty station up in ... well I won't say where it's at ... the guy said that I was anti-gay, and I'm not."
The interview during which Dave considers he was misunderstood took place in 2012 over at KIRO-FM
. Directly asked if he supports gay marriage, the frontman replied: "Well, since I'm not gay, the answer to that would be no. I'm Christian. The answer to that would be no."
