Meet The Young Man Behind Kanye West's Religion.......YEEZINITY

A young man has been revealed to be the founder of the kanye west religion. The founder of the movement Brian Liebman, a reclusive 23-year-old who lives off his parents’ income, has now revealed his identity.

The new ‘religion’ sees West as a Christ figure, whose divine example can lead followers to a profound spiritual awakening. The so-called Church’s website teaches that Kanye was ‘sent by God to usher in a New Age of humanity’ and simply by declaring faith in Yeezus converts help to expedite the millennial shift.
The outlandish and bizarre claims have made many wonder if the budding celebrity cult is in fact simply a hoax – and for good reason.
Living at home: The social recluse has yet to leave the nest or get a job, and instead spends his time making up religions, recording music, and working on his chiselled abs
While the invented doctrine has caught headlines around the world and garnered nearly a thousand ‘Ye’ciples’ (initiated members of the faith) the founder, Liebman, is an ordinary white kid from the suburbs, who creates music under the alias ‘BMAN’ and employs the tagline ‘Beats and Booty Calls’ on his website.
Liebman is an unemployed philosophy major living in his childhood home in Upstate New York, who freely admits to not having a social life, saying he would rather dream up ways to deify celebrities than waste his time on 'idle chit chat'. The ego: Yeezianity teaches that Kanye was sent by God to save humanity, pictured onstage in New York last year
But Liebman swears he’s sincere, despite his initial motivations for creating the so-called religion being a desperate bid to get the star’s attention.

He told MailOnline: ‘My intention at first was to create something cool that Kanye would maybe see and tweet about, but I didn’t expect anything more than that.’
Although, he was quick to add that his devotion to the Bound 2 singer goes deeper than mere fanboy worship: 'I wouldn’t say I was just a fan. Kanye has been one of my biggest heroes and I have always aspired to be like him.’
And the young man, who was raised a devout Roman Catholic but has since shirked his childhood faith for Kanye, thinks that aspiring to be like West is in fact a divine calling.
His boyhood religious training taught him to be like Christ, but as an adult Liebman finds himself far more eager to emulate Kanye’s champagne swilling and Kardashian-loving example. And Jesus, for Liebman, is simply reaching too high: 'The idea of becoming like Jesus is intimidating; it is blinding, his perfection is so unbelievable - like looking at the sun.’ Whereas Kanye is a far more attainable role model to aspire to in his decadence and privilege – a far cry from the asceticism and anti-materialism of Jesus of Nazareth.

According to the Yeezianity website, one can become a member of the Church Of Yeezus by: ‘Taking a photo or video of yourself stating “I Believe In Yeezus” and post it on your social media accounts.’
Members of the church are called ‘Ye’ciples’ because, according to Liebman, ‘It just sounds cool.’
MailOnline has contacted Kanye's reps for comment. One word ......this is just wrong. DM.
