Megadeth legend Dave Mustaine has clarified his comments about gay marriage which made headlines in 2012.
In 2012, Dave Mustaine answered if he’s supporting gay marriage or not, and said:
“Well, since I’m not gay, the answer to that would be no. I’m Christian. The answer to that would be no.”
Here is his new statement about gay marriage:
“I was up in Seattle. I was talking on talk radio. It wasn’t even a music show. And the [radio host] goes, ‘What do you think about gay rights?’ And I said, ‘Buddy, I’m a heterosexual. I’m a happily married man. This doesn’t really apply to me.’
So I don’t really know. Ask me another question.’ And the guy says, ‘So you’re not for gay rights.’ And I said, ‘I never said that. I just said that I’m a happily married, straight man.’
And the guy goes, ‘So, are you against gay people?’ And I said, ‘I’m against Dave being gay.’ And that was all I said. And now the gay community thinks I am a gay hater.
“I’m a Christian, so for me, I have my beliefs, but I never tell people what to do. And I would never tell anybody who to love or who not to love. And by the standards of what people think Christians are, I wouldn’t be a Christian, because Christians are supposed to be against abortion.
And if my daughter was r*ped or her life was at stake because of a disease or delivery or something like that, I would be for protecting the life of the mother. So I’ve got all these conflicting things.”
