Never one shy to promote himself you'd be forgiven for assuming that the above quote came from the lips of Kanye himself but they are actually the words of an anonymous group who have formed a new religion based on the music of Kanye West. Seriously.
Yeezianity, as it has been dubbed, uses West's music and persona as the foundation of the religion and, according to Noisey, there are five "commandments" associated with it:
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
Somehow we think that Kim K might have a few problems with the third commandment there, but how and ever...
Speaking to Noisey, the group explained the selection of Kanye West asa the figurehead of their new religious movement. "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. Jesus had all this baggage and all these connotations, and Yeezus is this new thing - and that why I saw in the 'Our Saviour' part of the site, 'we don't speak of his public persona.' Yeezus is when Kanye elevates to that God-level, which I feel like we all have the potential to do."
He continued: "He has the highest moral standards and the 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."
So all this time that Kanye West that Kanye West was proclaiming himself as a God, it's actually been true? Bow before Kanye. BOW!
