Just how ‘influential’ is Beyonce? She has her own church and religion now
Now I know that people out there really, really like Beyonce. Who doesn’t? And she just made Time’s Most Influential People list. But her own religion? Okay, yeah, maybe I can see that. It’s not like that’s any weirder than 95% of the other religions out there. Let’s find out more, shall we?
Sadly, Beyonce isn’t officially involved in the church or religion, but it’s still quite impressive.
According to Black News —
The National Church of Bey, an organization that recently formed the new religion Beyism (based on pop star Beyoncé Knowles), is a real organization based in Atlanta, Georgia.
The church’s founder, Pauline John Andrews, recently stated, “We are very disappointed in the failure of the public to recognize the existence of a divine Deity walking among them. Deity’s often walk the Earth in their flesh form. Beyoncé will transcend back to the spirit once her work here on Mother Earth has been completed.”
I am totally feeling this.
“As our congregation continues to swell, we ask that you consider what is more real; an invisible spirit on high, or a walking, talking, breathing Goddess who shows you her true form daily? Beyoncé’s spirit is entrancing. We know that she was sent to this place to spread love, peace, and joy … Open your mind to new possibilities and you will see, just as we did, that Bey is a true higher power. Surfbort!”
Surfbort, indeed. I’m converted. Someone please send me a copy of the Beyble as soon as it’s available. (That’s not a joke. They really have published it.)
So are you a Beyonce believer? We’ve got more Bey goodies right here.
