We’re Gonna Let You Finish, Christianity, But Yeezianity Is The Best Religion OF ALL TIME

Introducing a faith based on Kanye West

In a track off his 2013 album Yeezus, Kanye West requested that we a) hurry up with his damn croissants and then b) remember that he is a God.

An anonymous group of people have taken that song pretty literally, it seems, because they’ve formed an official religion centered around Kanye called Yeezianity. According to its website, the group “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.”

Members keep their identities quiet and only reveal their affiliation to those they already know are Yeezians. (Yeezites? Yeezish people?) Kind of like the Illuminati! Wait… hmm…

“We could be anyone you know, from your mailman to the mayor of your city,” the website says. Here are the religion’s five 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

VICE’s music channel, Noisey, spoke with the man who founded the church of Yeezus — though he insisted on remaining anonymous. He clarified that right now it’s more of a theoretical faith than an actual organized, structured religion. However, he started it only a month ago and is open to seeing where it might go. He explained why the rapper inspired him so deeply — and why others tend to have a less-than-positive view of him:

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.

Wonder if Yeezianity’s collection basket will accept donations in Coinye?

Nice how blacks can just INVENT fake religions, just a scam to hide their money from the IRS since religions don't pay taxes.

w.o.w this is the exactly what is wrong with the world today. The writer, the musician and the "religion" creator in this article need the real Jesus. Just go away, take your religion and your articles to a farm somewhere and make macaroni art.

Given the pictures of the people on the website, I imagine this is something similar to the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Not a real religion, but something silly for some hipster to have fun with.

Mhhhh, Kanye said he is a "god" not a "God" It's like saying I am a "Brian Wultz" and expecting it to read :-/

"Money is unnecessary except as a means of exchange."


Um, isn't that basically the definition of money?
