Ted Nugent has said he is "repulsed" by the idea of sex between two men.

The rocker, who was being interviewed by Piers Morgan on his US chat show Piers Morgan Tonight, said that though he did not consider himself to be homophobic, he believed that sex between two men was "against nature."

Nugent said: "I’m repulsed at the concept of man-on-man sex, I think it’s against nature. I think it’s strange as hell, but if that’s what you are I love you. I’m not going to judge another’s morals. I say live and let live. I have friends that are gay."



When asked he was asked by Morgan if he thought this made him homophobic, Nugent denied it, saying: "Not at all. Ultimately all of that stuff is inconsequential."

Nugent, who is known for his right-wing views, has recently taken to launching verbal attacks on US President Barack Obama during his live shows and did so again on the show, comparing the current administration to the oppressive Chinese dictator Mao Tse Tung. He said: "The White House today in 2011 is the Mao Tse Tung fan club" and added that Obama could "suck on his machine gun."

The rocker also reiterated his support for not introducing gun control in the USA, telling Morgan that "more guns equals less crime."
