Korn’s Jonathan Davis: “My Only Problem With Christianity Is The Fucking ‘Holier Than Thou, We’re Better Than You’ Bullshit”

During an interview with Metal Hammer, Korn’s Jonathan Davis discussed his feelings towards Christianity. The frontman says he takes issue with the religion due to its “‘holier than thou, we’re better than you’ bullshit.”

Davis had the following to say when asked if he has ever attended church with his Christian bandmates Brian “Head” Welch and bassist Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu:

“No. I’ve been to church and I respect their beliefs; the world would be a much better place if people would just stop fucking sticking their noses where they don’t belong and respect people’s beliefs. My only problem with Christianity is the fucking ‘Holier than thou, we’re better than you’ bullshit.

But those two, especially Head, don’t talk about that stuff. He just kicks back and accepts everyone for who they are. We played a livestream in a church when we released the new record and that was cool! I love the actual buildings; I decorate my house like a church. I just don’t necessarily like what goes on in them. Ha ha!”

Korn’s Jonathan Davis Suffering From “Long COVID”: “I’m Still Fatigued Like Crazy”

During a recent appearance on “Lipps Service With Scott Lipps”, Korn’s Jonathan Davis opened up about battling COVID-19 last year. The frontman also revealed that he is still suffering from his bout with a disease, a condition commonly known as “long COVID.”

Davis said the following:

“I think I got that long COVID stuff. I’m still fatigued like crazy. I’m doing the best I can. But I’m alive. And hopefully in time this will get better.”

He continued when asked how it feels to be on the road during the pandemic:

“I’m gonna live my life and get on with it. I definitely cater my life around not getting sick, though, because if I get sick, there’s no show. COVID or not, that’s been my life my whole career. I’ve got my own bus. I stay away from people on purpose because if I get sick, there’s no one to fill in for me. With the other guys, when they all got sick with COVID, we had people on standby; they flew out instantly, they could fill in and we could do a show. But with me, I’ve gotta be careful. I always have been, but it’s now to the point where I’m like… A year ago, that was, like… I was freaking out. [Laughs] I was, like, ‘I don’t wanna get this.’ And I go out on tour and I get it. And there you go.”
