The rapper hit some nerves in the opening of his tour at Seattle when he brought a Jesus look-alike on stage.
Kanye however explains what he was aiming to achieve.
Kanye tells Wild 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. We’re 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.”
