You know how Kanye West calls himself Yeezus, as in what we can only assume is his form of Jesus? Well we all know that Kanye is a tad full of himself. Okay, the guy is a hardcore egomaniac but apparently there are people out there who REALLY BELIEVE that Kanye, excuse me…YEEZUS, is really a higher power. And so the religion Yeezianity has been born.
According to the official website, the followers of Yeezianity believe that their savior IS Kanye Christ. “His real name is never to be spoken. He is known to us only as Yeezus. He has shown the world the creative potential of a human being and he serves as a model for behavior and ethic.
And if you want to become a member all you have to do is believe in a few key principles called the 5 Pillars and they are as follows:
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.
The group’s founder was quoted as saying recently in an interview, “In a lot of ways, after I created it, I reflected on it and thought that this was just a rehashing of Christianity, but just throwing Yeezus instead of Jesus. And you know what? That’s why I felt Kanye did it. He just put the name there. Jesus has all this baggage and all these connotations, and Yeezus is this new thing — and that’s why I say in the ‘Our Savior’ part of the site, ‘We don’t speak of his public persona.’ Because Yeezus is when Kanye elevates to that God-level, which I feel like we all have the potential to do. That’s why if it takes off, in the future, people would forget Kanye and his antics, and instead focus on what the message is.”
Yes, there really are some interesting peeps out there. Will you be joining the following of Yeezianity?
