Kanye West Defends Bringing Jesus On Stage
Kanye West recently caused some controversy during the Yeezus tour after bringing a Caucasian man out on stage dressed as Jesus Christ.
Kanye tells Wild in 94.9 in San Fransico:
“I had a friend of mine that is a pastor and we were discussing how we were going to deliver it. My girl even asked afterwards “isn’t that weird if Jesus comes on stage or something like that?” No we do plays all the time where people play Jesus. What’s awesome about Christianity is that we are allowed to portray God. Wer’e allowed to draw an image of Him. We’re allowed to make movies about Him. Other religions you can’t do that. Michelangelo did it…It’s a painting, it’s a sculpture, it’s a moving opera, it’s a play, it’s a message. I’m not even going to do any comparisons with that. God knows where my heart is at.”
