Just in time for Easter, fans of Kanye West now have their own Holy Scripture. An online entrepreneur has created a version of the Bible that replaces every mention of God’s name with his.
The Bible is available on Etsy and is listed as, “The Book of Yeezus: A novelty coffee-table book, celebrating the grandeur of mega-icon Kanye West. This is the Bible for the New Age.” It will set Yeezus worshippers back $20.
“What if the Bible, the most singularly significant publication in the ancient canon of Western tradition, were updated to reflect our modern society? What would it look like?," writes the creator on the site. "At it’s simplest, it is the book of Genesis, modified to feature 'Kanye' or 'Yeezus' in the place of God...'In the beginning Kanye created the heaven and the earth… And Kanye said, Let there be light: and there was light.' In a sense, Kanye’s awesome and orchestrated spectacle is truly a religious experience.”
We can only hope that someone soon turns Yeezy's interviews into sermons.
