That’s right you read correctly, and there’s no way I can make this up. Someone out there created a religion based on Hip Hop super star Kanye West, called, “Yeezianity: The Church of Yeezus.” The site states, “We are an anonymous group who believes that the one who calls himself Yeezus is a divine being who has been sent by God to usher in a New Age of humanity.” Maybe Kanye’s fans are taking his imagery and skit, in where he bought
someone on stage who resembled Jesus Christ (during his Yeezus Tour) a little too far.
To join the church of Yeezianity, the site asks that you submit an unrecognizable photo of yourself holding a piece of paper that writes, “I believe in Yeezus!” We would love to know your thoughts on this. Do you find it funny? Offensive? In the mean time, I’m going to go ahead and clear my search engine.
Is this a first? What other artists that you know of, had a religion created in their “honor?”
