Manson asked to cancel Denver appearance

Citizens for Peace and Respect, a church-affiliated group, has asked famed freak rocker Marilyn Manson to cancel a June 21 concert in Denver, according to The Associated Press. Some close to the shooters of the Columbine incident blamed Manson for inspiring the shootings. Manson cancelled a Denver-area concert soon after the shootings and hasn’t appeared in the area since. Citizens for Peace and Respect claims that Manson glorifies violence, hate and drugs, and shouldn’t be allowed to preach that message, AP reports.
