Megadeth Bassist to Preach
2012-01-21 by BethanyLizard | 100 Comments
Dave Ellefson, known for playing bass with thrash giants Megadeth, is currently taking classes online to preach Lutheran spirituality with his own MEGALIFE Ministries.

“I came from a good family, not a broken home,” he explained. “That became a model for me, and I saw church at the center of it.”

The full story was reported in St. Louis Today as well as on Loudwire.

I should've written this news article. Would've been full of puns.

"Megadeth bassist Dave Ellefson is now trying to win a tornado of souls over to the Lord by becoming
an ordained priest."

I was readin' this book called "Among the Truthers" which is technically about why smart people buy into obviously ridiculous 9/11 conspiracy theories, but it goes into other crazy conspiracies people believe these days and the different types of conspirisists there are.

and anyway to get to the point it talks about Dave Mustaine and all the crazy apocalyptic shit he believes in, and fuck man I knew he converted but I always kinda figured he was a liberal, reads-rob-bell kinda christian.

anyway I thought that was strange although I guess it's easier to make metal if you're an insane, UN-is-a-fucking-satanist-cabal-that-wants-to-control-the-world right-wing christian.

y'know love and mercy shit don't work in metal unless you're Trouble really.
