Marilyn Manson Was Praying At Kanye West’s Sunday Service?

If Marilyn Manson is a self-proclaimed Antichrist, what is he doing hanging out with Kanye West, leading a prayer circle with Justin Bieber, another devoted Christian?

Today, Kanye West (whose legal name is now Ye) kicked off a new Sunday service at 4 p.m. Eastern on Triller and the Fite TV app and he invited the infamous rocker to participate in the service Choir along with Justin Bieber. This was apparently filmed from a rooftop, and it was the second appearance of Mason at a Kanye West event, as he was already present at the listening event at Soldier Field in Chicago. According to Pitchfork, a children’s choir also participated in “Jesus Lord,” performed along with several “Donda” songs.

Everything that Kanye does these days seems to be religion-oriented: his 2020 album “Jesus Is King” won a Grammy in the category “Best Contemporary Christian Music Album,” and this says it all. So what is he doing with Manson? And what is Manson doing at West’s Sunday prayer?

Without following Manson’s career, it’s well known that the rocker has always expressed great disdain for organized religions, and has used religious imagery to shock values. Even though his platinum “Antichrist Superstar” LP is already 25-year-old, he is no friend of religions: “I had a real hard-on against organized religion,” he declared to Paper magazine in 2015. “I don’t think that’s gone away, but I express it differently. I know 100 percent that there is a cause and effect to every action you do, and freedom of speech does not come with a dental plan.” He flirted with Satanism and has always had a cynical fascination for religious figures: “I wouldn’t say I have respect for many modern religious figures,” he said to Beliefnet in 2001, ”But I acknowledge what they’re doing. And the ones that do it best I envy because I see the sheer evil in what they’re doing. You have to admire their cunning and their diabolical ways of manipulating the world. It fascinates me, ultimately. I just find myself fascinated with all religious figures throughout history.”

Manson’s fascination with Jesus and use of religious imagery has to be the opposite of Kanye’s apparent sincere intentions. However, Marilyn Manson was praying on stage during this Sunday service gospel. Justin Bieber was reciting a prayer thanking God for creating animals and trees, while Manson was listening very seriously, wearing a white robe and a white veil/mask covering half his face. He looked like a cross between a Tuareg and a Vatican escapee and you have to admit it was an odd scene. Could this be just another stage act for Manson while be entirely sincere for West? And in this case, is Ye aware of that? Or did Marilyn Manson change his mind about religion? It could be the perfect timing to find Jesus when you are accused of many sexual assault charges.
