The always outspoken Gene Simmons typically doesn't hold back when it comes to speaking his mind, and he's now got another forum to do it. Simmons has penned a piece for Classic Rock magazine as part of a regular feature called "The Gospel According To ...," and in his latest entry he discusses religion and pedophilia amongst other topics.

"Pedophilia is an incurable condition -- death is the only answer, apart from sending them to the gulags of Siberia," starts Simmons [as transcribed by Team Rock], who adds, "Priests who are pedophiles are the lowest of the low. If you put on a priest's collar and use your influence to command someone to suck your c--k, there's a special place in hell for you."

In the article, he also discusses Islam, stating that he doesn't believe it to be a violent culture, and shares that he is pro-marriage, but with one addendum -- it should be for older men. He explains, "Males of all ages are actually 16-year-old horny toads."

The full commentary from Gene Simmons can be read via the current issue of Classic Rock Magazine.
