Townshend Blasts 'Drag Queen' Priests
PETE TOWNSHEND was so disgusted by the trappings of Christianity after watching 2004 MEL GIBSON movie THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST, he wrote an angry track lambasting "drag queen" priests. The legendary rocker expresses his bemusement in A MAN IN A PURPLE DRESS on THE WHO's new album ENDLESS WIRE, and insists faith has nothing to do with dressing up. He says, "It is the idea that men need to dress up in order to represent God. I'd just go ahead and do it. I wouldn't dress up like a drag queen."
