The Passion of Kanye West?

Kanye West has done and said some pretty obscene and offensive things in the past, but it looks like he can't get enough of his odious and abhorrent ways. He is on the cover of the upcoming issue of the Rolling Stone Magazine with a crown of thorns over his head in mockery of the recent movie The Passion of the Christ. According to AP article, West is quoted as saying: "If I was more complacent and I let things slide, my life would be easier, but you all wouldn't be as entertained," he says. "My misery is your pleasure." He also goes on a tangent in the interview where he talks about his addiction to pornography. He spoke of the first time he saw his father's copy of Playboy magazine when he was five years old and commented, saying: "Right then," West says, laughing, "it was like, 'Houston, we have a problem.'" Houston, we do have a problem . . . a problem far greater than you realize. ******* Update: MSNBC has also added an online poll to see what people's opinions were - interesting.

Indeed, this man needs SERIOUS prayer... I work w/ a local youth group here in Louisville, and our youth pastor shared w/ us a little of Kanye's history.

Apparently, he has also had a full-sized portrait commissioned depicting himself as being "resurrected" from an almost fatal car/motorcycle accident he survived a few years ago. In the painting, Kanye is encircled by cherubim heralding his "glorious" return to life, and it shows him emerging from the rubble much like Christ emerging from the tomb.

VERY disturbing...

Sometimes you have to wonder what these celebrities are thinking. They are in the spotlight for everyone to see and how many of them are setting good examples. How many show that they are involved in church? Mel Gibson made a wonderful movie that touched the world, changed lives and Kanye suggests that he is worthy of depicting himself as even being remotely as glorious as Christ is? I think not. Timmy, I am so glad that you put this up. He really goes way out of the normal realm.
