    Link: Public Preacher Gets Shut Down By Marilyn Manson - You have seen them in public places. Should they be allowed to force people to listen or should they all be shut down?

    Rude. Give him his say. You don`t like the message, move on.

    But his message is all about God`s love and how you deserve to be in hell..... What`s that again? ? ? I`m confused...

    I know people that preach like this, and trust me he is not defeated by this. Street preachers do their best to find places like this in front of bars and strip clubs where they can speak the truth His mission is to try and prevent people from going into those places and get them to think about what they are doing.

    Yeah this man tells people that they "dont deserve the love of god" and that they "deserve to be Hated...cast into Hell" He is merely another "Shock and Awe" preacher that the world should ignore. He does NOT speak the word of God.

    "Should they be allowed to force people to listen or should they all be shut down?"

    good so i guess we shutting down all the public schools too. after all they force kids to listen to the evolution theory as fact. oh wait there is a difference in public you have the opportunity to ignore and walk away, in school thats failing the grade or truancy.

    Wait, what do you mean "force people to listen?" People can walk away whenever they want; they`re not LITERALLY a captive audience. If the dude wants to waste his time spewing fire and brimstone that`s his sad, pathetic prerogative.

    You can`t say that he isn`t speaking truth, He didn`t get to finish is message. I am sure that he would have continued on to talk about how God is willing to forgive you despite your mistakes if you ask him for forgiveness and turn from your sins. He has no purpose by condemning people without a resolution.

    these kind of people make me so angry....they preach about Jesus and God and yet they say that sinners should be hated and that sinners deserve to go to hell....did Jesus hate the sinners? no did Jesus yell at them and tell them to go to hell? NO, he said to love they neighbor.....it`s these people who preach hate who are the sinners

    The preaching, or the music? What he is doing is basically what Jesus DID do. Not that the message was necessarily the same.

    @smagboy1 Well you see if you read the bible it clearly says nobody deserves the love of God and we all deserve to be hated and sent to hell, but that`s kinda why Jesus came and died on the cross, it was by God`s grace that we`re saved, not by our own self-righteousness. Also on a side note I don`t believe people are being "forced" to hear any of this, they can easily walk away..

    How is this guy forcing anyone to listen? It`s his right to go into a diatribe. You don`t have to listen. Free speech no matter how retarded should never be shutdown in public places. Only in a place paid venues. Where the customer paid to watch a lecture or show and not be interrupted.

    The bible was ancient people trying to describe the universe to the best of their ability, in a time where if you looked at someone wrong you could be stoned to death. If only people could get past the hate and fear the bible preaches because of the "unknown" and get to the love and abundance our world really offers, we might actually make it. Also Yelling at people in the street NEVER changed anyones mind....its like saying calm down to someone whos mad....it has never worked in the history of man. You can only teach those who want to learn, thats why it says to seek and you will find. Only those who want to hear will listen.

    Walk away? What if you`re shopping at one of the stores he`s standing outside of that have open doors? As loud as he`s being I`m sure everyone could hear him.. Why should anyone have to stop what their doing and "walk away" just because some fool feels like publicly making a total ass out of himself? And what about the people that work there and can`t just "walk away".

    Your a damn idiot to think a crowd of people should stop what their doing and leave just so they don`t have to listen to this crap coming out of one lonely guy looking for attention.

    "The bible was ancient people trying to describe the universe to the best of their ability, in a time where if you looked at someone wrong you could be stoned to death."


    Uh...actually the Bible is a collection of books. Only the Book of Genesis was anywhere the relation toward describing the universe and how the earth was made. The others consisting of the Torah applying spiritual laws and the history of the Jews. The New Testament consisted of Books in relation to Christ and his history and on how to live the plan of salvation.

    Did you just come up with that utter nonsense revelation yourself, or did you really read it from cover to cover?

    okay, so, i believe that everyone has a right to say their piece. everybody has a right to it. but what people do not have the right to do is whine about others not believing the same thing they do, and say that they should, and claim it`s in the name of their freedom of speech. if you want to explain what you think, fine. i would listen. but when you start blaming people, calling out, judging people, and trying to ridicule someone else`s beliefs... that`s not what you allow from others, and ipso facto nobody should listen to you or give your faith any credence.

    i mean, it`s in response to these types of people that stand on a box and yell at complete strangers, yeah, but a lot of people do it. of all kinds of faiths. let he who is without sin cast the first stone, not he who thinks he`s entitled to act as a judge of his god`s will.

    if you want to get people to convert to your faith, why not try being nice to people and not contradicting your own belief system?

    @madest Well I believe your completely misunderstanding my God.. He loves you and he wants to have a relationship with you, I know it sounds crazy but grace is something that means undeserved gift, it`s not something we can earn, it`s just given, and we were born into a sinful life because the whole population of the earth way back near the early times of life, Adam and eve made up the whole of humans on this planet and they disobeyed god and brought sin upon us all, i know it doesn`t sound fair and it seems unrealistic that we deserve the same fate as them but it was definitely a generational thing and the sin has been passed down, kinda like genes. Well anyways, We live in that sin and God still loves us even tho we do and we as a population (adam and eve) disobeyed him, it kinda portrays how your actions will have an effect on your children and the people around you. it`s a great reminder to keep yourself in line, In the end, God loves us even tho we dont deserve it and that`s grace

    Sure, I believe in free speech, but that doesn`t make certain speakers any less annoying. And some of you are saying that you can just "not listen" to his speech if it bothers you? Sure, and he could have continued using his right to free speech when the store decided to play its music too. No big deal.

    And besides, it`s not always the message that`s so annoying, it`s the way it`s delivered, for example:

    "HELLO ALL!!! ROFL! I <3 YOU GUYS SO MUCH. OMG IAB PPL R THE GREEATEST IN DA WORRLD!!!11!"

    Does the friendly message make that less annoying? I don`t think so.

    Free Speech = The right to say and think something without fear of being prosecuted.

    America does not really have free speech. Along with the rest of the world, free speech goes as far as the government will allow it. If this guy were to be spouting speech inciting the murder of the President, his free speech will not get him very far.

    Free Speech is NOT the right to force your ridiculous religious preching on people who don`t believe the same things you believe.

    This guy`s approach at religion is not exactly the most inviting. Don`t threaten me into your religion.

    well he wasn`t forcing it on anyone! all of those people could have walked away, or chosen to not listen. they was not force there....if he was standing there with a gun and saying "believe this or die" then that would be forcing. i do not agree with his tactic, but give him props for having the guts to stand up there while being heckled the entire time. idc what you believe, that takes some courage.

    @ Batmanners "Free Speech is NOT the right to force your ridiculous religious preching on people who don`t believe the same things you believe." ... as i said before but its ok to force "your" evolution theory on our children and force them to learn it. I for one didnt come from a monkey and i dont want my children "learning" that we did. but sure enough our schools teach it is the only "creation" of the world, and fail the children if they dont respond in evolution. So dont force evolution as the only means of our existence or be as 2 faced as atheists accuse Christians. Wait that made too much sense to be a valid point lol

    2) You`re actually serious (in which case, hey, it`s still hilarious, so all good)

    @ davymid actually i am a "skillful and highly amusing" redneck and actually serious and proud of both. I try not to judge people and their beliefs but there comes a point when i get tired of all the 2-faceness and as far as my avatar goes thanks. I actually have that image tattooed on my shoulder and air brushed on my car. While i am proud of my southern background, i am also proud of my native background too. Considering my "animal spirit guide" is a noble and majestic wolf, I thought that image is the perfect marriage of my 2 backgrounds. For everyone who may say something about my beliefs and having a spirit guide, just for the record i am a Christian, but also hold dear my native heritage. thank you again for the compliment about my avatar

    @ Semirhage666 and following that kind of ignorance just leads to more ignorance as well as the problem of the school system. I dont want creationism only in school. Just all the beliefs presented and let the kids decide what they want to believe. Teachers teaching kids to repeat, not present all sides and let the child think and come to his/her own opinions. Turn our kids to parrots. and BTW "facts which have been scientifically proven" this is the same group of people who one day say eggs are good for us next day bad for us. Rinse, Lather, repeat ...

    Oh yes, an all loving god that hates you because you did something he said you shouldn`t.

    I love how he says that we should burn in hell for worshipping false gods that man has created. Well, considering the bible was written by man, and not even when Jesus was supposedly alive, I would argue that Christianity has created god in their own image. And therefore they worship a false god. Same with pretty much every religion that says you HAVE to follow what we say or you will be sorry.

Scenario two, God is not a complete douchebag and truly is a perfect being and thus realizes that I am a good person and I go to my ideal heaven. Scenario three, nothing happens and I get to watch fools like this back pedal so god damn hard.

    @tsiemens

    "Free speech no longer exists, try saying something like homosexuality is wrong in a public place"

    You can say homosexuality is wrong all you like.

    You just can`t incite people to go harm or kill homosexual people.

    I do not think you understand what hate speech actually is, or what the laws against it specifically state.

    @Mainframe

    "You`re not forced to listen."

    I set up some speakers in a public street that emitted a sound so loud that it blew out your eardrums and caused severe pain and damage to you...

    ...what? Why are you complaining? You didn`t have to listen!

    Hearing isn`t directional like vision, numbnuts. You can`t just "listen in a different direction".

    Envy- Envied power, Copied Satan`s Method for spreading his thoughts
    Gluttony- When was the last time he came down from heaven
    Wrath- Do I really need to explain
    Sloth- How long does it take to answer prayers
    Pride- So proud of his position he would rather sacrifice his son
    Lust- So much lust for the human race he would cast out his own Angels
    Anger- Again, do i need to explain this one

    Perhaps your god needs to remember, judge not lest ye be Judged yourself....

    Now go home and condemn your god to hell based on his own rules...

    Soapbox preachers never "force people to listen." You can ALWAYS walk away. At the same time, they don`t have a monopoly on public space- others certainly have a right to shut them down if they so choose, as in this video. I absolutely encourage that type of behavior. What this man was saying was absolute nonsense.

    Also, this was disappointing. I thought the actual person Marilyn Manson was going to walk by and start arguing.

    I am appalled and sickened by the fact that that question is even posed here. It is a uniquely American trait that anyone can stand on a soap box in public and speak. That IS the freedom of speech guaranteed by the First Amendment to the Constition.

    Is the person who posted this an American? I can forgive the glaring lack of knowledge if it came from someone NOT American, but if you are an American, and you think that people should be "shut down", or otherwise silenced in public because you don`t like what they are saying, then you need to move to Russia and help them try to revive the Soviet Union.

    Glasglow = not USA

    In USA soap boxing seems to be supported only if your talking about jesus or god

    imagine what would happen if you got up and started preaching about Satanism...

    tends to work out more like Equality and free speech for everyone that looks like/acts like/believes what i do/ and agrees with me!

    Yeah, Davymid, today it`s most of the western world. Freedom of speech (and other individual freedoms recognized by government) had been dallied with over the centuries, but the United States has lead the way, and "most of the western world" has followed our lead since 1776. What we are seeing in the U.S. today is a slap in the face of our founding fathers.

    Having said that, Shortbuskid is correct in that this did not occur here, it occurred in Glasgow. So I now hop down off my soap box.

    I`m just sad that the guy`s life is so rotten that he has to criticize the lives of others. :( I hope he figures his stuff out.

    Free speech only works when and if the crowd agrees with you, like if you planned something and people showed up to support it. Randomly starting something like this will just end up mob mentality, which normally doesn`t end well.

    Doesn`t he realize that people are just trying to enjoy their time off? If they wanted to get saved they`d go to a church.

    preaching at people about reasons why they should be terrified of God is not a great way to get people to convert to worshiping a God that preaches love and kindness...just saying.

    "preaching at people about reasons why they should be terrified of God is not a great way to get people to convert to worshiping a God that preaches love and kindness...just saying."

    my thoughts exactly. ever heard the phrase "no one ever converted because they lost the argument"? whats the point of preaching AT people? it will never convert someone to your point of view
