Megadeth Man Backs Republican For Presidency

He also reveals that he opposes gay marriage

In an interview with Seattle radio station KIRO 97.3 FM Mustaine was asked about his stance on gay marriage in the US. 

"Since I'm not gay, the answer to that would be no,” Mustaine said. And when asked whether he would support legislation to make marriage between a man and another man legal he responded "I'm Christian, and the answer to that would be no."

He was also asked to clarify a comment from a previous interview with Music Radar in which he suggested that he would vote for Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum, if he were to get the nomination.

"Earlier in the election, I was completely oblivious as to who Rick Santorum was, but when the dude went home to be with his daughter when she was sick, that was very commendable,” he said. "Also, just watching how he hasn't gotten into doing these horrible, horrible attack ads like Mitt Romney's done against Newt Gingrich, and then the volume at which Newt has gone back at Romney... You know, I think Santorum has some presidential qualities, and I'm hoping that if it does come down to it, we'll see a Republican in the White House ... and that it's Rick Santorum.”
