It's part of human nature to search for meaning. Why are we here? Who are we? What is the meaning of life? The great faiths of the world have tried to answer those questions for centuries. Many people feel that the old religions don't quite fulfill our needs anymore. But there is a man, a very special man, who has all the answers. A man who taught us truths like, "We want prenup!" and "You see there's leaders and there are followers, but I'd rather be a dick than a swallower". I'm talking, of course, of Kanye West or Yeezus as he is known in his new religion. Some Kanye fans have started a faith called Yeezianity that lives by the tenants of the music of Kanye West mixed with classical Christianity. As the founder explains,
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. 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.
It might seem silly to us that someone would quite literally worship a celebrity, much less effing Kanye West. The danger is that this is going to feed into his ego. He already thinks he's a god. Now other people are confirming it. I wonder if Kim Kardashian will be venerated like the Virgin Mary. People will pray on rosaries made from anal beads for her slutty beneficence. North West will replace baby Jesus in the nativity scene. All hail Yeezus!
