Ive been listening to Marilyn Manson for years ( although not so much anymore).
I started off just liking his songs then I read his book and really followed him closely for a long time and really developed a great respect for
Its a shame how alot of people just dismiss him as some guy who's life mission is just to shock people. Theres alot about Manson ( just like everyone
I suppose) that the public dont really get to see too much of.

Poison Im in NO WAY having a go at you but I think Marilyn Manson has said himself that he doesnt worship the devil ( Im not exactly clear on that
I have read a bit about 'Devil Worship' ( im assuming you mean Satanism). Not because Im a Satanist, just because I find all sorts of religions
I believe the main idea in Satanism ( again dont take my words for 100% truth, Im just remembering back to an interview with 2 people who run the
Aussie chapter of The Temple Of Set in a Fiona Horne book) is that they dont actually worship the Devil like some people would worship God, and they
dont go around 'hexing' people or eating babies.
I think Satanism is to put yourself first before anything, make your own decisions and do what you want (example ignore the ten commandments and
teachings of the bible). The believe that Satan was just a misunderstood guy who got kicked out of heaven because he wanted to do things his way.
Just my 2 cents.
