Kanye Talks Religion

So Kanye had a press conference the other day for 808’s and Heartbreak. Apparently, he got a little touchy on the subject of religion. I’m not too sure about the details because I haven’t watched the video yet, but here’s what he had to say about it afterwards on his blog

“When I listened back to the New Zealand conference I was like whoa this is pretty harsh. Sometimes I speak with no filter. I did not mean to be so harsh on the subject of Christianity being that I was a well known Christian. When I was at my Mom's funeral a fucking stranger came up to me and said, "I hope you've accepted Jesus as your saviour so you can see your Mother again!" My entire life, being an african american, Christianity was forced down my throat. Since I was a child, I would ask questions like, "so are little babies that can't speak yet going to hell also?" I one thousand percent believe in God, I believe in Karma, I believe in being a good person. I'm not trying to tell people what they should believe or not believe. To each is his own. I was in situations where someone constantly used Jesus to show me how baaaad a person I was or how not perfect or not Christ like I was. When I say I don't want to be Christ like I'm saying I'm fine with not being perfect. I'm fine with being a human being. I'm happy with just that.”

Pretty Deep and I definitely understand where he’s coming from. But no matter what your beliefs are tho, you gotta always remember that religion is a dangerous topic to dabble in with some people.

Thoughts, Comments, Concerns?
