The thing about Marilyn Manson is that he is a mirror. He says it himself during interviews all the time but in his own words. He is a mirror of all of our “flaws,” our shame, the things we keep hidden and shines the light on them. The people who fear him and talk against him are the people who have the most to hide. They are afraid that through him they will be found out, and they are mad because he has the courage to just be and they cannot.
