Notes: The Mansons aka Jesus Christ

They have been dubbed "The most dangerous band alive." The Mansons have been persecuted relentlessly. We call them the devil. They are the reason society is so bad. Does this sound familiar? This sounds like the same accounts towards Jesus Christ by the Roman Empire 2000 years ago. As they have nailed Christ to the cross, we have nailed the Mansons to the cross. Could it be that the Mansons and Jesus Christ are the same person?

If you know anything about these two, the answer is: Most likely.

Let us take a look at these two. Both Jesus Christ and the Mansons led a cult that still thrives to this very day. Christ's followers are still preaching his words, as do the Manson followers. And each cult is growing as time goes by. Both "Christianity" and "The Manson Family" will be here forever. As old followers die out, new followers will take their place to carry on the words of both Jesus Christ and the Mansons. If we looked past the usual stereotype against the Mansons, we can see that the preaching of the Mansons is identical to that of Jesus Christ. Hasn't Jesus spoken about the power of love? And also, isn't that what Jello Manson used for his motto?? Kevin Manson has said "In love, you do no wrong." Wouldn't Jesus agree? In fact, would Jesus apply to that? In truth, yes!

Now, it's time to unveil the infamy of the Mansons and Jesus Christ. Yes, both of them are wanted for influencing murder. The Mansons have led the Bryant-Fruth-Hart murders as Jesus Christ led the city of Jericho. In both incidents, people were to die for their "sins". Because of this, both the Mansons and Christ have been the victims of injustice due to the courts and trials. During the trial, Todd Manson was denied the right to defend himself. Instead, we have hung him up onto the cross. People, for years, have called Mike Manson "A silly old fool who knows absolutely nothing." Is that true? No, absolutely not!! The Mansons are also human beings like us, might we remind you. They have brains. They know what's going on. We'd rather listen to Jello's words than some fanatic priest.

The Mansons know and have experienced hardships in life too. Your society has caused the Mansons to become what they have today. If you'd listened to them in the beginning, the world wouldn't have the Mansons. To put a long topic short, man is known to create gods. Man has then created Jesus Christ, man has also created the Mansons.

Therefore, the Mansons ARE Jesus Christ!
