We’ve all heard of Jesus, but does anyone know Yeezus?
You will now because hip hop recording artist Kanye West’s sixth album has inspired a whole new religion - Yeezianity.
The “Church of Yeezus,” according to its comprehensive website, is a mysterious group that believes in Yeezus – a “divine being been sent by God to usher in a New Age of humanity.”
This secret society urges all its members to remain anonymous and not to share their beliefs with anyone except other known followers.
The most intriguing part of Yeezianity is the one where they talk about their savior. According to the description, the worshippers are forbidden to take his “real” name and he is to be referred to as Yeezus only.
The group has, however, posted a picture (shown below) of the unnamed savior.
“He has shown the world the creative potential of a human being and he serves as a model for behavior and ethic,” the website states.
Yeezianity has the following five principles or pillars that all worshippers supposed to adhere to:
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
They also have a Golden Rule that says, “Create For Others What You Would Have Created For Yourself.”
Just recently, Kanye filed a lawsuit against the founders of "Coinye West" – a bitcoin-inspired virtual currency satirically named after the rapper.
One wonders what his response would be to Yeezianity.
