Marilyn Manson is admittedly a very interesting dude to say the least, right? Did you know that he’s an ordained minister? Yes, he is–in the Church of Satan. In late 1993, he met with Dr. Anton LaVey, the church’s founder. They sat down for what was by all accounts a very cordial meeting. When things wrapped up, Dr. LaVey bestowed the title of “reverend” on Manson. However, the meaning of the word “reverend” has a different meaning in this church. It means “one who is revered by the church and its adherents.” It’s not like being a minister or a priest or a rabbi or an imam. There’s no formal preaching or evangelizing required. As you might guess, this little detail is lost on most people.
