Yeezianity: Anonymous Group Starts Kanye West Religion

Internet trolls trying to bank fake money off of Kanye West's image aren't the only kinds of Internet trolls he has flocking his way.

An anonymous online group calling themselves the Church of Yeezus have launched a website dedicated to the religion of "Yeezianity," and are using an image of a man who closely resembles West as their "savior" only to be known as "Yeezus."

"I believe I Am a God, I believe Yeezus Is a God," they write as their "Declaration of Faith." "I believe in the creative power of Man, I believe God wants Man to create in his Image..."

"First of all, he is the most honest person in our culture," the church founder told Vice, anonymously, of course. "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."

For those who are nodding in agreement, right now, joining the church is a simple one-step process: email them "an unidentifiable picture of yourself holding up a piece of paper or some other creative design stating, 'I Believe In Yeezus.'"
