MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine has posted the following message in the "Forums" section of the band's official web site:

"People don't really have to guess how I feel on issues; that is a benefit of being outspoken. So, I have to say that I am stunned with the inconsiderate posts and threads here about my stand for something that is important to me, and people acting like this is new news.

"So what if I played with a band in question [ROTTING CHRIST] in 2001. I got saved in 2002. Do the math.

"Also, we have very laidback guidelines here — basically treat me the way you want to be treated (unless you want to be treated like a turd) and we will all get along fine. I don't attack you, I don’t push my beliefs on you, I still try my best to love you all, and accept the good with the bad.

"I stick up for my friends, show up to do the right thing, and stand proud for my beliefs. If you don't like it, then go see someone else's concerts, or go to someone else's site. Its just that simple.

"The sad thing is that this all happened over a band that was never even confirmed on the Greek concert. Rest assured, many people here revealed their true colors over this. And I want to thank each and everyone who took the time out of their busy schedule to stand alongside me; whether you have/had the same beliefs or not.

"I still love you all. Now, try to stay out of trouble for a while, ok?"
