Kanye West, Religion

Here's Kanye West At A Conference in New Zealand.

Here's what he had to say about that conference.

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.

Here's how i feel:
Alexis is wrong for making him feel like a bad person. And ummm I want my money back from 808's and Heartbreak.

I already said 808's & Heartbreak was gonna suck because he let Lil Wayne and Young Jeezy on it, so I'm glad I still have my money.
