In case you haven't heard or are not yet a worshipper, there is a new church devoted to Yeezus (no, mere mortals are not allowed to utter his real name) called Yeezianity. See, this is why you can't just go around proclaiming yourself a god because there are people who will believe it under any circumstances (see: Scientology, Pastafarianism). And apparently they'll literally listen to anyone, even someone who can't articulate his way through a Jimmy Kimmel interview.
According to the About section of the website, they are "an anonymous group who believes that the one who calls himself Yeezus is a divine being who has been sent by God to usher in a New Age of humanity." And during that new age we will all wear Margiela masks and aspire to recreate ourselves in Yeezus' image. I mean, he LIVED for our sins you guys.
The Golden Rule of Yeezianity is as follows: Create For Others What You Would Have Created For Yourself. Meanwhile, members remain anonymous and are only able to identify themselves to other members, so you won't ever know if they're following the golden rule or not. However the website asks followers to please submit anonymous photos declaring devotion to Yeezus.
Now we here at Betches have been debating all morning whether or not this is real. I am 99% sure it's not real and it's just a really good satire. I have zero evidence to support this other than the fact that I just know. Betch 2 thinks it's real and her argument is basically that there are crazy people in this world so naturally someone would create this with pure intentions. Betch 3 is still sleeping, so we phoned a friend to ask if she thinks this is real or not and she said "it will be soon." Now that's what I call a prophecy.
So the debate continues, and we're genuinely curious, do you betches think this is supposed to be real or satire? Honestly the only thing more upsetting to me than finding out this was intended as a real religion would be finding out this was a publicity stunt by Yeezus himself.
