hes a character. i dont know about the real person behind marylin manson. i think the character is supposed to be satanist, though. hes a priest in the church of satan.

in the real world, hes quite well spoken and intelligent.

Long Road Out of Hell. He isn't a LaVeyan Satanist. He's a card carrying member, but I think he said in the book that he doesn't really believe in it.

typical shock rock, 9-10 times the satanic image is for show. basically likes to push peoples buttons, which is what he did when he first started gaining popularity, and their reactions just made him do more shocking things. personally i doubt he is really a satanist on the level he gives off to the bible beating public who hate him. Perhaps a bit eccentric, but underneath all the shock-rock stuff he's a decent guy!

i wouldnt really say hes a "character". hes part of the church of Satan because he was good friends with Anton LeVay.

After reading his book, I still think he's a dick. That isn't based on his music, I think he's an awesome lyricist, and I like most of his music. But I think he's a dick. I feel the same way about Paul McCartney.

i dont believe that he is actually how he presents himself. maybe "character" is a bit strong, but i think hes purposely manipulating his image for sales and fame.

I read he isn't a Satanist.

Mind you, this source also claimed he refuses to play in concerts unless the audience kills a puppy first.

If he says he is, it's just for show.

Oh I see i thought he was a lavayen follower.


I gotta get that book...

He actually only met LaVey because at the time LaVey was the only registered theremin player in the Musicians Union. He wanted him to play on his album.

You guys do know that if he acts that way on stage or in front of camera, regardless of whether or not it is amplified, he is still being himself.. right?

ya the puppy thing has been going around sense the 90s, i seriously doubt that would be allowed to happen. can imagine the animal rights activists going crazy over that, oh and the animal cops might toss him in jail too.

Anne Marie Lucas from Animal Precinct is one hot Animal Cop!

Satanists don't acknowledge the existence of God, making them atheists.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

I read the Satanist Bible a little while back... but I can't remember if that bit is true or not. It seems logical to me that for Satan to exist, God must also. Most people need one to perceive the other. The duality of human perception... babble, babble, blah, blah.

I have no idea about Manson. Apparently his "old stuff" was good, and his "new stuff" is crap. I don't know where the line is drawn, personally. I've also only heard his singles.

Any recommendations?

leveyan satanism is an atheistic religion. They do not believe in any form of deity. Satan is just a symbol, as well as a good way to piss off the Christians...which is why its used.

Exactly. Satan translates to "Adversary". Meaning the opposite of the beliefs held by the Church of Christ.
It's been a while since I've done reading on this, so sorry if I have my wires crossed.

he had said in an interview that he's not a satanist, he's not really anything. He was friend with anton lavey, and anton made him an honorary bishop in the church. He doesn't regularly preform services or anything he was just given the title like a gift.

he writes about satan & **** because it's more fun and more interesting

some of them do, just not LaVeyan Satanists, there are groups of Satanists who worship an actual deity called Satan.
