In California...
09:46 28th August 2009

Christians came out in their droves to protest outside a Marilyn Manson concert in California on Tuesday night.

Demonstrators gathered outside the recently re-opened Pomona Fox Theater in Los Angeles County waiving placards and chanting pro-Christian messages.

One of the protesters, 65-year-old Rod Warner, told the San Bernardino Sun: "The only thing I'm out here to accomplish is what the lord, Jesus Christ, through my belief, tells me to accomplish. And that's take his gospel to the lost.

"Every shirt you see here depicts nothing but death. They can say they're Christians if they want to, but the Lord says worship me with your heart not your mouth."

Placards signs included messages that read 'Trust Jesus, Repent: Read The Bible' and 'Study and Obey the Bible - Matthew 7:21.'

Marilyn Manson fan 19-year-old Cesar Haro was unimpressed with the protests, saying: a. "We think arguing with these people is cool ... but we do think it's very disrespectful, though.

“We have the right to be here for what we paid. They're disrespecting our area and our right to be here."

Despite the protests, the show went ahead as scheduled and even featured a surprise appearance from Slayer's Kerry King.
