Kanye West Inspires New Religion: Yeezianity
When most people think of Kanye West, one of his many notable attributes – aside from his cockiness, controversial relationship with Kim K, and affection for ranting – has to be his love for Jesus, so much so that the Holy One even makes a cameo on his Christ-inspired Yeezus tour.
And just like Jesus has inspired a new 'Ye, the Chicago rapper has now sparked a new religion: Yeezianity
In an interview with Noisey, the Yeezianity founder (who chose to remain anonymouse) says that the religion makes for an easy conversion only requiring interested Kanye-obsessed worshipers to follow the "5 Pillars":
1. All things created must be for the good of all
2. No human being’s right to express themselves must ever be repressed
3. Money is unnecessary except as a means of exchange
4. Man possesses the power to create everything he wants and needs
5. All human suffering exists to stimulate the creative powers of Man
“He's a god. You're a god. Why Yeezus is the figure is because Kanye is the one who believes that the hardest, so that's why he's the model for behavior,” the cult founder said.
But why make a Yeezy religion?
“First of all, he is the most honest person in our culture. He has the highest moral standards and highest integrity. He is the most creative person. And as it's typical with creative people, he gets a lot of flack from the lower minded masses. It's not even that they don't like him, it's that they don't know what he's doing because the press gives it this negative spin all the time. And now it's people feed on it so it's this constant negative trance. But, like, College Dropout is probably still my favorite album of all-time.”
