The Truth About Marilyn Manson
EXTRA EXTRA! ANOTHER MANSON FOLLOWER GOES ON SCHOOL SHOOTING SPREE!
THE TRUTH ABOUT MARILYN MANSON
Get the flash player to see videos.
One of the most blatant, anti-Christ performers to come out in recent years is Marilyn Manson. Rock star, Marilyn Manson, proudly boasts: "Hopefully, I’ll be remembered as the person who brought an end to Christianity." (Spin, August 1996, p. 34)
Madman Marilyn Manson is as guilty for the Columbine High School Massacre as the two maniacs who pulled the triggers. His music incited the killers to violence. We must work to BAN Manson's music, as well as street thug rappers who advocate killing cops, and Eminem who advocates rape, murder, and suicide.
Before you begin reading this article, NO EMAIL IS RECEIVED, READ, or RESPONDED to pertaining to this article. No one can change the opinions of Johnny Lee Clary on Manson.
IT IS A TOTAL WASTE OF YOUR TIME TO SEND EMAIL TRYING TO DEBATE THE FACTS PUT FORTH IN THIS PAGE. IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT, GO TO ANOTHER PAGE. JOHNNY LEE CLARY IS TOO BUSY TO READ YOUR EMAIL ON MANSON, PERIOD! END OF STORY.
I, Johnny Lee Clary want you to know that it is not my intention to try to tell you that Gothic music is wrong and that you should not listen to it. Manson is NOT a Goth. He is a FREAK, and a SHOCK ROCKER, and true Goths can't stand him. My concern is the hate that Marilyn Manson promotes against the Christian church. Many have accused me of promoting hate against Manson, however Manson is the one promoting hate. He burns Holy Bibles in public, spits on pictures of Jesus and curses Christianity. The fact that Manson has the photo in his CD, "Antichrist Superstar" of two of his band members drinking his urine through a straw while he is urinating should be enough to repulse people. If anyone endorses that or thinks that's "cool" then they are mentally disturbed. I am NOT interested in any of your opinions that say "Manson only does this for show," "Your facts are wrong and only rumors," "You have hate towards Manson," "Manson said this or that in Michael Moore's 'Bowling For Columbine' and he wanted to listen to the kids," "I don't like your references," "Manson does not believe in Satan and Satanism does not mean devil worship," "Manson was married so he can't be a bisexual," "Where is your proof of this or that," or anything else you have to say in defense of Manson. This page has been up for years and I have heard it all. I have instructed staff to delete and not respond to any of your emails on Manson. I will never see them and you are wasting your time. This page was created to help educate people on the dangers of this evil man and to get parents to get involved and stop their kids from listening to Manson if the kids will not stop listening to him on their own. I encourage parents to monitor what their children are listening to and if they find any of Manson's CD's in their child's possession to take the appropriate action. As a result of this page, thousands of young people have shown good judgment andr stopped listening to Manson.
Attention Manson Fans, Witches, Warlocks, Satanist, Hippies, Commies, and Perverts: Keep making websites about me, you are making me famous! Thanks!..from Mr. Clary
MANSON'S MUSIC INFLUENCED THE KILLERS INTO MURDERING THESE TWO LITTLE GIRLS
Cassie Bernall (left) and Rachel Scott (right) were two of Manson's victims. It was because of his influence and telling those two killers at Columbine to murder Christians that these two little girls lost their lives. Manson is just as responsible for their deaths as the ones who pulled the trigger.
MANSON IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE COLUMBINE HIGH SCHOOL MASSACRE

It was Manson's music that influenced Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold into killing the Christians at Columbine High on April 20th, 1999. If you do not take action, YOUR kids could be Manson's next victims.
Above photos show the tears of the students and families that lost loved ones at the hands of Manson's followers.
Letter from a Goth:
Marilyn Manson Is NOT a GOTHIC
"I agree with you on Manson. As a Goth myself I am disgusted with Manson and all the crap he has caused. He gives us a bad name. Goth isn't about violence and Satanism its about art, beauty, and it is a state of mind not just a fashion. The common misconception that people have about Goth is that Manson is gothic, he is not however. He is a sick minded fool who has no idea what Goth is. His music is what is called shock rock which from what I can see is industrial rock mixed with heavy metal influences and a few other types of music but the point is, Manson gave us a bad name. People don't even look me in the eyes unless its someone I know ... and all because of what? My appearance ... Manson has literally brainwashed society into thinking that Goth and Satanism go hand in hand. I am a Christian Goth! So he has a double edged sword on me. He insults Christ and Goth so his indeed one of my worst enemies. But we can only pray that God will break through to him and show him the error of his ways. Maybe Jesus will use someone to get through to him. But I am glad that you have exposed Manson and have shown who he really is. But I recommend that you also put on your site that he is not a Goth. That he gives Goths a bad name. I can see that you have said that his music is gothic music but gothic music doesn't talk about violence. He is basically just another metal band really ... anyways you have my utmost respect sir and I am glad that there are people like you who want to bring him down!"
Manson promotes bisexuality and homosexuality.
First of all, I want to state that I do not hate Brian Warner, but I hate the sin that he is doing and my purpose for this page is to inspire Christians to take a stand against this evil man and to do whatever it takes to stop this murderer of children, Brian Warner, known as Marilyn Manson. God loves ALL sinners, including Warner, however, God does HATE sin, and He hates all the things Warner stands for. We as Christians, can not hate individuals, but we certainly must hate sin, and the actions that individuals like Brian Warner do. We have to take a stand against what he does. If you do not agree with this, then you are no Christian. A true Christian will stand against what Marilyn Manson advocates. Even Manson can be saved IF he will repent and turn from his wicked ways, but until he does, we have an OBLIGATION to the children as well as to society to stop this evil wicked demonic activity Manson is doing. It is quite possible that Manson has crossed the line and committed blasphemy, but only God knows that for sure. What we do know is we have a duty to protect our children from the likes of Marilyn Manson, aka, Brian Warner, hater of Jesus Christ.
Marilyn Manson acts like a freak that is straight out of the pits of hell. He is a so-called rock singer, but that is a farce, as the guy can not even carry a tune. He is actually a recruiter for the Church of Satan, in which he holds the title of "reverend". He was given this title by Anton LaVey, founder of the First Church of Satan and author of "The Satanic Bible". Manson began worshipping LaVey from the time he was a teenager.
Manson Promotes The Church Of Satan
Manson's followers try to claim that his brand of Satanism is really not the worship of Satan. Here is PROOF that it is exactly the worship of the Devil.
Manson with his hero and mentor, Anton LaVey
Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner, was a God-hater from the time he was a child. There is a false story being circulated around the internet through e-mails, about the early teenage life of Brian Warner. It tries to explain the reason Manson hates Christians so much by telling a lie of how Brian was rejected by a youth group at a church Christian school he attended while he was a teenager. It says that since he looked and dressed differently than the other teenagers that attended the school and church, they wanted nothing to do with him, so he turned to Satanism. WRONG! This story is deceiving as it leaves out a lot of important details. The fact of the matter was that Brian Warner used to show up at church dressed in black garb and wearing Satanic t-shirts. He used to try to intimidate the other teenagers by telling them things like "Satan Rules" etc., etc. He would give them the Satanic sign and tell them that the Devil was God. He also admitted to being a homosexual as well as a child-molester, and propositioned several teenagers at the church to try to entice them into having sex with him. When teenagers attend a church, they are wanting to develop their relationship with Jesus. They are obeying God by coming out of the World, as described in 2 Corinthians 6:14, "What fellowship has the believer with the non-believer, what fellowship has sin with righteousness, what fellowship has Jesus with the Devil, what fellowship has light with darkness? Come out from among them and remain separate says the Lord." Those kids were in their full rights to reject fellowship with someone who was obviously only there to cause trouble, and wanted to intimidate Christians. I mean, first you should reach out to someone like that, but when they openly reject you and come into the House of God to start trouble, that shows disrespect to not only God, but to the teenagers that are there trying to get their lives right . They have to listen to all that satanic junk in the world, so God forbid that they have to come into the church and hear it there.
Brian Warner later changed his name to "Marilyn Manson" (female impersonating Marilyn Monroe and glorifying Charles Manson, who brutally killed 7 people and claimed to have butchered countless others during the infamous Helter Skelter Murders) and formed a band with other transvestite homosexuals, taking the names of serial killers like "Madonna Wayne Gacy", Stephen Bier, Jr. (female impersonating Madonna and glorifying John Wayne Gacy, a homosexual serial killer who raped and murdered over 35 boys, and buried their bodies in a crawl space in his basement); Brian Tutunick "Olivia Newton Bundy," ( female impersonating Olivia Newton-John and glorifying Ted Bundy, the serial killer who claimed to have killed over a hundred young girls across the highways of America); Jeordie White "Twiggy Rameriez", (female impersonating model Twiggy and glorifying the dreaded Satanic Night Stalker Richard Rameriez who murdered and raped women throughout several months of terror in Los Angeles and San Francisco, California); Kenny Wilson "Ginger Fish" ( female impersonating actress and dancer Ginger Rogers and glorifying Albert Fish, child murderer and cannibal who ate kids after murdering them); Scott Mitchell Putesky "Daisy Berkowitz" (female impersonating Daisy May of the musical "Lil Abner" and glorifying Son Of Sam serial killer shooter David Berkowitz); Perry Pandrea "Zsa Zsa Speck" (female impersonating Zsa Zsa Gabor and glorifying Richard Speck who murdered 8 nurses hacking them to death with a butcher knife,) Fred Streithorst "Sara Lee Lucas" (named after Henry Lee Lucas who confessed to murdering over 250 people,) and began playing the Homosexual hangouts. Manson began to record CD's , and recorded one called "Antichrist Superstar", in which he says some of the most blasphemous things that can ever be said against Jesus Christ. Below are photos of Manson and his transvestite satanic perverted band.
Manson, began burning Holy Bibles in his concerts, and giving "alter calls" for Satan, by encouraging kids to reject Jesus Christ, and accept Satan into their hearts and minds, as well as accepting Manson as the Antichrist. He tells them to chant in unison, F#ck the Holy Spirit and F#ck Jesus Christ. It is quite possible that Manson has committed blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, which is the only sin that is UNFORGIVABLE. Marilyn Manson could have crossed the line with that one. Only God Himself knows if he is beyond redemption, by making those chants. God will judge him on this but we have a right to make a right judgment to take a stand against him and expose his fruitless deeds of darkness.
Manson sells WWJD bracelets at his concerts saying that it does not stand for "What Would Jesus Do", but instead they stand for "WE WANT JESUS DEAD". He has allegedly raped a young girl on the stage, and has sodomized one of his band members in front of thousands of children. Manson claims the girl had sex with him willingly, but she was underage, so that makes it rape, and Manson a child molester, plain and simple. He took a little puppy dog that was only 6 weeks old, and tossed it into the audience, encouraging kids to rip it to pieces and then smear the blood all over one another, which they gladly did. He said he dreams of the day that he can take a little baby and do the same thing to the baby. He has asked audiences at his concerts if they have ever eaten babies. He sells t-shirts encouraging children to KILL GOD, KILL THEIR PARENTS, and then KILL THEMSELVES. Many a teenager has committed suicide after going home from his demonic concerts. Singer Courtney Love, pulled out of her on the road tour with Manson, in March of 1999, stating that she would never tour with him again as he was telling children to commit suicide. This web site would never endorse Courtney Love or her music, but in this case we say, "Good On Ya, Courtney!"
Manson tells kids that Hell is a great place and they need not fear Hell. He says it is one great big party for eternity with all of the drugs and sex you can ever want. He tells them to escape the pressures of this world by committing suicide. I notice that Manson advocates suicide and tells young people to do it, but he fails to lead by example! If Hell is so great and suicide is the solution to life's problems as Manson says, then why doesn't he set the example? I'll bet you that there is someone out there who would even loan him their gun if he will just practice what he preaches! Why is it OK for Manson to tell teenagers to kill themselves but he would not set the example? Think about it young people!
Twiggy Rameriez , one of Manson's band members was arrested for molesting a little boy. Manson and Twiggy have frequently kissed and fondled each other at concerts. Marilyn Manson and Trent Reznor of satanic band "Nine Inch Nails" had sexual intercourse.
According to Manson, the eye tattoos on Marilyn's forearms are really bulls-eyes for his heroin needles. Marilyn Manson told many that he had gotten breast-implants, but that he later had them removed. He had posed for a photo showing himself with breast, but he no longer has them now. See photo below.
Many have said that Marilyn Manson has thrown bags of drugs into the crowd.
Manson destroys other people's property.
In the PoaAF days, Marilyn Manson demanded that kitty litter be placed on the floor of his dressing room, so he could relieve himself anywhere.
Manson recorded a song called, "My Monkey" and it was originally written by Charles Manson, who Marilyn Manson calls his "hero".
His favorite author's include Anton LaVey, Freidrick Nietzsche, Aliester Crowley, Charles Darwin and Roald Dahl. (Aliester Crowley was called the most evil man ever born, and once crucified a frog by nailing it to a cross to make a mockery of the Crucifixion of Christ.)
Marilyn Manson is a Reverend of the Church of Satan. It's founder, Anton LaVey, made a cameo appearance in the Dope Hat video.
Manson "preaching" at First Church Of Satan
As a child, Manson was tested by the American government because his father Hugh, a Vietnam War vet, sprayed the deforestation substance Agent Orange, which caused birth defects in a substantial number of the children born to parents who were exposed to the virulent chemical. When they were called in for testing, Manson and his dad met other vets, and their children, some of whom had prosthetic limbs, which inspired him to collect them, in later years.
Like his namesake, Charles Manson, Marilyn Manson was also born in Ohio.
Marilyn's father used to carry a nude photo of Twiggy in his wallet
A common speculation of the song Misery Machine's line, "We're gonna ride to the Abby of Thelema," is that it is a reference to the Scooby-Doo character Thelma. Thelema was actually the name of the temple Aleister Crowley established in Italy, before his expulsion from the country by dictator Benito Mussolini.
As a child, Marilyn would play near the butcher's shop which was across the street from his parent's home. He once found an aborted baby in a coffee can behind the building.
Manson has taken the cross of Jesus and defecated on it while on stage.
Manson has urinated on pictures of Jesus, during his concerts.
Manson has encouraged the teenagers in the audience to commit acts of sodomy, and lesbianism.
He has claimed he has smoked human bones.
He conducts sex with audience members and band members and rapes girls on stage. When the band opened for NIN Manson was kneeling down singing and a member of NIN walked up to him with his penis hanging out. Seeing the offered item Manson put the penis in his mouth. At early shows before the band was famous Marilyn Manson would have girls dancing naked in cages while men gathered around them and spit on them. You're probably going, wait a second...shouldn't he get in trouble for conducting this kind of display. Manson has been arrested a few times and has been banned from 13 states in the USA for behavior.
Manson's band members drink his urine and he pees on the crowd at his concerts.
Inside of Manson's AntiChrist Superstar CD, this sickening photo shows Manson urinating through tubes while his band members drink his urine.
In his "Holy Wood" CD, he mocks the crucifixion of Christ, by appearing on it's cover "nailed" to a cross. He commits more blasphemy by calling this, "Jesus Rotting On A Cross." The songs such as "Born Again" and "Lamb of God" are full of hateful blasphemy
Just like the K.K.K., Manson burns crosses.
On Thursday, November 11, Marilyn Manson performed live on the MTV European Video Music Awards in Dublin, Ireland for an estimated 1 billion viewers. In regard to his third VMA appearance Manson had this to say, “It was rather ironic that teenage girls with breast implants and rappers with violent and misogynistic lyrics spent the whole night thanking Jesus Christ of all people. It is clearly by unchristian means that these alleged “friends of God” have made their millions so I chose a more honest way to say thanks.”
Parents, this is what YOUR children are listening to when they have this freaks cd's in their possession. I was recently at a Christian school and I asked for a show of hands of students who listened to Manson's music or had his cd's in their possession and about 75% of their hands went up.
Well the Rev., says, " Take those cd's, lay them out on the floor, take a hammer, and whack those cd's until they are in little bitty tiny pieces, and then mail those pieces straight to Manson telling him you want nothing more to do with him or his music."
It is against God's Holy Word to listen to Marilyn Manson, as God's Word says in Philippians 4:8, "Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy,-think about such things."
Parent's , if your teenager will not do this on their own, then YOU take the proper leadership role in your home and do it for them! You have every right to do this according to God's Word in Joshua 24:15 "AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE WE WILL SERVE THE LORD!"
Parents, Manson has not only told the teenagers to commit suicide, but he has encouraged them to take knives and hack their parents to death while they are sleeping, or to take a gun and murder their parents , or kill their parents in anyway that they can.
In 1987, The Southern Poverty Law Center successfully sued the United Klans of America and received a judgment in the amount of 7 million dollars, on behalf of the mother of Michael Donald, a black man that was murdered by members of the U.K.A. The jury found that the Klan was responsible for the actions of it's members. This brought an end to that fraction of the Klan. The Southern Poverty Law Center in 1989, again successfully sued on behalf of another family of a murdered black man, another Klan type organization, WAR, which stands for White Aryan Resistance. A jury found it's leader Tom Metzger responsible for the action of it's members, which were skinheads who beat a black man to death with baseball bats. Metzger and WAR had a 12 million dollar judgment levied against them, forcing Tom Metzger to lose everything he had including his house. Metzger had to live in a van down by the river for awhile. WHY NOT USE THE SAME TACTICS AND SUE MANSON FOR THE DEATHS OF THE CHILDREN AT COLUMBINE HIGH SCHOOL IN LITTLETON, COLORADO? The two who did the killings before killing themselves, Eric Harris, and Dylan Klebold, where both followers of Marilyn Manson, and ran down the halls screaming "Marilyn Manson rules!" while they were shooting their classmates. They were heavily influenced by Manson, and listened to his music all the time. If the K.K.K. and W.A.R can be held responsible for these deaths, then Manson should be held responsible for the Columbine deaths, as well as all the teenagers who have either overdosed on drugs, or have committed suicide from listening to Manson.
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO STOP MANSON
WE MUST NOT SIT BACK AND ALLOW THIS DEMONIC BEHAVIOR FROM THE PITS OF HELL TO COME INTO OUR COMMUNITIES ANY LONGER!
I SAY THAT WE MUST DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO KEEP MARILYN MANSON OUT OF OUR CITIES WHEN HE TRIES TO COME TO OUR TOWNS, BECAUSE THIS IS FOR THE PROTECTION OF OUR CHILDREN!
Some people have written us and advocated doing something illegal to stop him. Some say it would be so easy for someone to go to his concert and shoot him while he is on stage giving his alter calls for Satan, then get "lost" in the crowd, and chances are they would probably never get caught, but I am telling you that would it not be right to take Manson's life away from him, and also it would only land the shooter time in jail if he got caught. No one should take a chance on throwing their freedom away by doing something like that. Manson is not worth you going to prison over.
The way to deal with Manson is this: THE POWER TO STOP MANSON IS IN THE HANDS OF CHRISTIANS. Imagine if the church would unite! Baptists, Pentecostals, Methodists, ect, could all work together to stop this madman from coming into their communities to hold his satanic concerts! For instance, if all the community churches or even some of them would get a few thousand Christians together and converge upon the managers and owners of the convention centers and concert halls that rent them to Manson, and demand that they cancel his contract, this would be effective. Pastors could speak on behalf of the citizens that have assembled and let the managers know that they will boycott their businesses and put them out of business personally, by publicizing their names and the ones who rented out the concert hall to Manson. They could let them know in no uncertain terms that they will hold them personally responsible. Then they could visit all sponsors, advertisers, and places of business that do business with the convention center and urge them to drop all advertising and support from any event put on in that concert hall. This would make the managers think twice about renting their halls to Manson. Also the same march and demonstration could take place right to the local politicians and they could be urged by the VOTING citizens of the community to put pressure on the managers and owners of the concert halls not to rent to Manson. This same tactic can also be done in your local CD shops to get them to stop selling Manson's Cd's.
"Shall your brethren go to war, and shall ye sit here?" (Num. 32:6)
ACT NOW! The future of our children depends on you!
Manson, an ordained "reverend" in the Church of Satan, mutilates himself on stage (1 Kings 18:28), rips-up the Holy Bible, and spews "blasphemies" against the Lord Jesus Christ. Manson’s T-Shirts declare, "KILL YOUR PARENTS" & "I LOVE SATAN". One of Manson's album is titled Anti-Christ Superstar, Manson claims Antichrist Superstar came via "supernatural-inspiration":
Manson’s "hope" for Antichrist Superstar,:
Manson’s "blasphemy" is not just an act. Manson readily admits there's more to the show than meets the eye:
Manson admits his childhood longing for Satan:
"Just like the Beatles" — what a comparison!
The Beatles were some of the most blatant, ANTI-CHRIST performers the world ever heard!
All Apololgies & NIRVANA
Kurt Cobain is one of the worst ANTI-CHRIST, blasphemers since John Lennon. Kurt Cobain decorated his home with blood-splattered baby dolls hanging by their necks! Look inside of Nirvana's album In Utero, which is the album contains "All Apololgies" from, is pictures of chopped up babies! Cobain ran around his neighborhood spray-painting, "ABORT CHRIST" and "GOD IS GAY". Cobain's first band was called "Fecal Matter". (Des Barres, Pamela, Rock Bottom, pp.54-55)
According to Mojo Magazine (Sept. 1999, p. 86), Kurt Cobain was, "obsessed with Anton LaVey". Satanist Anton LaVey was author of the Satanic Bible and founder of the Church of Satan. Cobain was so "obsessed" with LaVey, he tried to get LaVey to play cello on Nirvana's Nevermind!
You talk about wicked satanic, blasphemy! Trent Reznor is personally responsible for the "huge-mainstream" success of the "pervereted-blasphemous-satanist" Marilyn Manson.
The ultimate slap-in-the-face came from Manson as he held a concert just outside of where the Columbine High School Massacre took place in honor of the two maniacal killers. Manson said he was sick of hearing about the Christians like Cassie Bernall and Rachael Scott who died at Columbine. He said the true heroes were Klebold and Harris who killed all of the kids.
Shock rocker Marilyn Manson, infamous for his dark stage presence and lyrics that glorify hate and violence, will use the Word as a weapon at his June 21 concert in Denver.
Manson has also stated that his Denver concert will be in honor of the two teenagers who were responsible for the deaths at Columbine, stating that they were the true heroes of Columbine.
"I think he promotes suicide, and with him promoting suicide, he encourages people to kill as many people as they can before committing suicide -- very similar to what happened at Columbine," said Brian Rohrbough, whose son, Daniel, was killed.
David M. Diaz v. Brian Warner (aka Marilyn Manson), Jimmy's Touring Inc., Vivendi Universal, Universal Music Group, Interscope Records, Nothing Records and ABC-XYZ Corp.
Filed: December 4, 2001
The Case: Marilyn Manson must really miss former fiancée Rose McGowan.
It's either that, or maybe the shock rocker just had a bad itch he needed to scratch, after two--count 'em, two--accusations of improper groin rubbing at his concerts.
Manson is once again the target of a lawsuit by a concert security guard, who claims the makeup-caked demon-lover grabbed his head during a show in Minneapolis and "proceeded to gyrate his hips, pressing his genitals" onto his head.
David M. Diaz, an employee of the Twin Cities-based Asia Peso Security, seeks more than $75,000 in damages for battery and emotional distress, after an alleged run-in with Manson (real name: Brian Warner) during an October 27, 2000, concert at the Historic Orpheum Theater in Minneapolis.
Diaz says he noticed the audience looking at him and then realized Manson was standing behind him. "Without any warning," Diaz claims, the 32-year-old singer grabbed the man's head and "held it against his hips." The guard allegedly asked him to stop, "but he continued gyrating against Diaz's head.
"As a result of Manson's actions, Diaz was humiliated and degraded," the suit reads. "He has endured ridicule and shame due to this incident."
In addition to Manson, Diaz's suit also names his touring company, Jimmy's Touring Inc., and Vivendi Universal, which owns Nothing Records and Interscope, the rocker's label. Reps for the Antichrist superstar did not return calls for comment.
"[Manson] doesn't have the right to do that to other human beings, whether he considers himself more important or not than the rest of us," Diaz's attorney, James Kaster, told the Associated Press.
Sidebar: This isn't the first time Manson's groin has caused trouble. In August 2001, a Michigan security guard accused Manson of the same thing.
Joshua Keasler said Manson (wearing a G-string, no less) spit on him during a July 30 concert at the DTE Energy Theater. Manson then allegedly wrapped his legs around the guard's head and neck and rubbed his crotch against him.
Oakland County, Michigan, prosecutors went ahead and charged Manson with criminal sexual misconduct--a fourth-degree felony that carries a maximum penalty of two years in prison--as well as a misdemeanor count of assault and battery. He pleaded innocent to the charges and is due back in court December 28. He's currently free on $25,000 personal bail.
Oakland Co. Prosecutor Won’t Accept Plea Bargain from Marilyn Manson
By Chad Groening
(AgapePress) - A Michigan prosecutor vows to throw the book at shock rocker Marilyn Manson, after the controversial performer allegedly accosted a security guard last month.
Oakland County prosecutor David Gorcyca says he will not accept any plea negotiations from Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner. The prosecutor has charged Manson with sexually assaulting a security guard at a July 30 concert outside Detroit. Gorcyca says the unsuspecting victim was outraged.
“He was pretty outraged and offended by his actions,” he notes. “Here he was, ironically, there to protect the performer from people approaching and rushing the stage. And unbeknownst to him, he was assaulted in an unconsensual [sic], non-participatory fashion while guarding Marilyn Manson.”
Gorcyca says he hopes the shock rocker and his attorneys will cooperate. Otherwise, he is prepared to do what he has to do. “From what I understand, he’s on tour, and we’re going to have to make arrangements to have him come in here and be arraigned and avail himself to the court,” he says. “He can either do that in a cooperative fashion, or if he doesn’t want to cooperate, we’ll take care of business ourselves.”
Gorcyca, who has already successfully prosecuted rapper Eminem, says Manson’s actions far exceed any artistic license. And he believes a jury in his very conservative community will come up with the same conclusion.

Marilyn Manson Crotch Case Finally Resolved
A civil lawsuit in the case of Marilyn Manson’s crotch vs a Detroit security guard’s head has finally been settled out of court.
The grossly extended litigation stems from an incident where Manson rubbed his grossly extended penis on security guard Joshua Keasler’s head during a concert in July of 2001.
Actually, Manson wrapped his legs around the guard’s neck and gyrated his crotch against him while wearing only a thong and pantyhose. Keasler sued Manson for sexual assault and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
In the criminal trial for the same incident, Manson was charged with disorderly conduct and assault and battery, but the judge dismissed the sexual conduct charges. Manson paid $4,000 US in fines. Keasler’s lawyer John Nickola said both sides agreed not to release any terms of the civil lawsuit settlement.
This is not the first time Manson’s crotch has landed him in trouble with security guards. In December 2001, David Diaz filed a $75,000 US lawsuit against Manson when he allegedly grabbed Diaz’s headpressed against his crotch and gyrated. Last September, a jury found Manson innocent on charges of battery.
For those who aren’t familiar with Manson’s unique stage antics, a sample list includes tearing pages from the bible, cutting himself with broken bottles, drinking a bucket full spit from fans and simulating oral sex on band members.
IN HIS OWN WORDS MANSON SAYS:
"I've always had a desire to be provocative and to make people think, but it wouldn't be any challenge for me just to be shocking. That is where it begins for me, not where it stops. And I could be much more shocking. I think I've adopted a sense of subtlety. I don't sit around wondering how I can make myself even stranger to the world. I've simply evolved into the monster I created, and I'm quite happy with it."
"There's an old saying - 'The devil is the church's best friend.' If Satan wasn't around, churches would go out of business. The same goes for conservatives or Christians, or whoever they might be. They need art because art is evil; art challenges beliefs. Because I'm a vocal spokesperson for that kind of activity, I am the devil to them."
"There's a lot of great stories and a lot of great values in the Holy Bible, and I actually relate to a lot of them. The character, the idea, or the part of my personality that I describe as Antichrist Superstar, is a lot like Lucifer in the Bible. Someone who was kicked out of heaven because he wanted to be God. I try to say in my own story: 'Well if it was told from his point of view, then would he still be the bad guy?'
This record [Mechanical Animals] was written on drugs about drugs, and it will likely be performed on drugs as well."
Below is a copy of Manson's Web recruiting page and his thoughts on Christians.
