In a sit down interview with San Francisco’s Wild 94.9, The JV Show, Kanye West explains the reason why he brought an actor dressed as Jesus to the stage at his Yeezus tour kickoff in Seattle. In the video, Ye’ states “We do plays all the time, people play Jesus, you know what’s awesome about Christianity, people are allowed to play God.” He continues to say “We’re allowed to draw images of him, we’re allowed to do movies of him. Other religions we’re not allowed to do that. That’s what’s really awesome about Christianity. One of the awesome things.”
He later touches on illuminati, White Jesus and Black Jesus, the corporate world and a multitude of other topics. You can listen to the full interview below and watch the video of his reason behind bringing out Jesus above.
