Quote:

“I’m a bit out of touch with the newer Straight Edge scene so I can’t comment too much on it, but being drug/alcohol/abuse-free, I certainly have no problems with people taking control of their lives and not letting stuff like drugs and booze run it for them, but I do have problems with people who try and change other people’s lives in a militant fashion.”
