The framers of our country wanted to make sure that no man was persecuted for his religious beliefs. It is a shame that in the twenty-first century, people are still being mocked for what they believe. Brian Liebman is a twenty-three year old resident of New York who seeks to practice his own religion: Yeezianity.

Followers believe “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.” Note that God is ushering in humanity; it’s not a joint religion based off of Kanye and Usher. That would just be ridiculous. As a devout Pastafarian, I had no interest in converting to Yeezianity, but have a profound respect for the tribulations the new members are facing.

We Pastafarians — those belonging to the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster — have just recently seen one of our own adherents, Christopher Schaeffer of Pomfret, N.Y., step into office as a City Councilman. We are less than a decade old, but our fight for religious rights prevailed when Schaeffer took oath with a colander (our religious attire) atop his head. It’s going to be a long fight, Yeezianity, but equality is worth the world.

The origin of Yeezianity seems to be from a Facebook group created Jan. 10, 2012 called the “Church of Kanye West.” In recognition of the recent publicity, the page’s latest post speaks out against the “increase in so-called ‘haters’ ravaging” through the church. The page describes the “Lord and Savior’s” thoughts on the haters by quoting Yeezianity religious text. According to the fifth chapter from the “book of the west”: “Screams from the haters, got a nice ring to it, I guess every superhero need his theme music.” The page ends the speech with the note that West’s words were “incredible. Kanye Bless you my children.”

Yeezianity has been unfolding in an incredible amount of mediums—it was born in 2012, but Liebman justly fought for the resurrection of his beliefs this year and recently released a website that explains the dogma, “5 Pillars,” and other unnecessary information that will receive no views unless he releases some pictures of cats with the face of Kanye West. I might convert for that.

Liebman, a terrible music artist with hipster glasses and a philosophy degree, has been attacked by the Daily News and released a statement reassuring the three people that cared that there were inaccuracies in the article. From his trolling caverns of the internet, Liebman made sure that people knew: “The editors hacked all the substance of the interview out and exploited me … I have new empathy for Justin Bieber.” Bieberanity has no ring, so that uprising quickly ceded.

Kanye West said that he doesn’t see himself as God but, his prophetic wisdom spewing, stated: “Like, when people pick, like, a favorite Halloween character, it’s like, that’s what (who) I would pick!” You better have a blasphemously big candy basket, Kanye, because Gods can’t get diabetes.

I respect the freedom of those who pursue Yeezianity. I don’t respect Liebman, but I respect his free will. Liebman stated that his goal of promoting Yeezianity was “to create some controversy. I want people to be like, ‘This is absolutely ludicrous.’” I’m pretty sure that’s how The Crusades started. Good luck.
