Russian Christians Block Marilyn Manson Concert




MOSCOW — Authorities in Russia’s third-largest city canceled an upcoming appearance by American shock rocker Marilyn Manson on Friday after Orthodox Christians accused the performer of peddling sexual perversity and being a threat to security. On June 11, some 400 demonstrators took to the streets of Novosibirsk to call for the cancellation of the Sunday event, and accuse Manson of being propaganda for “narcotics, sexual perversions, and insults to Christian faith,” according to a local Russian news website 
Manson “shouldn’t perform in Russia” because he destroyed a Bible during a previous concert in the country, Dmitry Enteo.

 “We cannot allow for something like that to happen again,” he said. The event’s organizers announced that the city authorities had declined permission for the concert, but suggested it take place a day later. 

Organizers rejected this, however, and instead said they planned to demonstrate against the cancellation.
