The exploits of one Kanye West have been well documented over the years. And now, the ego driven, outspoken mega star celebrity/rapper is inspiring a new religion called Yeezianity. And no, we’re not making this up. In case you weren’t aware, one of the tracks on West’s album “Yeezus” is called “I am God.” Now it appears that the anonymous founder of a new religion, Yeezianity, considers the 36 year old West its God.
And yes, there’s even a website Yeezianity.com that touts itself as the “Best Church of all time!” The ‘About’ section of the site, explains the main tenet of the religion: ‘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.’
It goes on to state that all members are to remain anonymous until ‘conditions are ripe,’ at which time ‘all of our members will reveal their identities and their divine forms and the Creative Age will finally begin!’
When asked about what lead to the creation of the site here’s what the founder had to say: I created this thing about a month ago – and all I did was tweet it, and I don’t have a lot of Twitter followers, so that didn’t go anywhere,’ he told the site Noisey. ‘I was putting up other Craigslist ads and I just thought, “Well, let’s see where this goes.” I got some responses. I mean, you found it, so that’s pretty awesome.’
The ‘Our Savior’ page of the site has a drawing resembling Kanye. Currently Mr. West is in Paris for fashion week and we’re quite certain that he’ll absolutely love hearing about this assuming he hasn’t already. As if there weren’t enough things out there to inflate his ego.
For those that are interested, the religion’s ‘Golden Rule’ is ‘Create For Others What You Would Have Created For Yourself.’ Also, if you want to know how many member of this religion there are, the founder claims that it’s “10 Times what you think it is.”
We’ll have to see if Yeezianity can give Scientology a run for its money.
