He might be denying reports that he's officially endorsed Rick Santorum, but Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine wants the world to know he is firmly against gay marriage.

"Since I'm not gay, the answer to that would be no," Mustaine told Josh Kerns of "Seattle Sounds," which airs on on Seattle's KIRO 97.3 FM radio station. After Kerns pressed him further, Mustaine noted, "I'm Christian. The answer to that would be no."

The 50-year-old heavy metal rocker, who last week surprised longtime fans when he told MusicRadar.com that he hoped to see a Republican in the White House, also clarified his political views. "America is being emasculated," he said. "I think as long as George Soros is going to be President Obama's main mentor, we need to get ready to start wearing red." As for the specific reports that he's endorsed Santorum, he noted, "I didn't say that. I said that he's the one that I'm looking at."
