Kanye West Inspires Yeezianity, The Church of Yeezus
The founder of Yeezianity says that Kanye West "is the most honest person in our culture."
A group of people have formed a movement inspired by Kanye West that they’re calling Yeezianity, according yeezianity.com. The people have chosen to remain anonymous at this point. On their site, they said that they believe "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.”
"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,” the anonymous founder of Yeezianity says in an interview with noisey.vice.com. "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."
The “5 Pillars” of Yeezianity are: "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 founder says he holds Kanye West in high regard. “He is the most honest person in our culture,” the founder says during the noisy.vice.com interview. "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."
