During a recent interview with Wild 94.9 in San Francisco, Kanye West spoke about the significance of having Jesus portrayed at his concert.
“I had a friend of mine that’s a pastor there as we started discussing how we wanted to deliver it,” Kanye West said. “My girl even asked afterwards, ‘Is that weird if Jesus comes on stage?’ They’re like, ‘No. We do plays all the time. People play Jesus. You know what’s awesome about Christianity? We’re allowed to portray God. We’re allowed to draw an image of him. We’re allowed to make movies about him. Other religions, you’re not allowed to do that. That’s what’s really awesome about Christianity. That’s one of the really awesome things.'”
