White Jesus, Is That You? ... Oh, S***!': Rapper Kanye West's Bizarre On-Stage Interaction With Jesus Look-Alike

"I didn't come here to make bad people feel good."

Rapper Kanye West's "Yeezus" tour launched on Saturday night at the Key Arena in Seattle, Wash., where he upped the ante on including religious themes and imagery in his performances by including a Jesus look-alike on stage.

MTV reports that the overall thrust of the concert focused upon West's quest to find a higher power -- and the Christ character was simply a piece of that. When the actor who was dressed as Jesus came out on the stage, the rapper -- acting surprised -- said, "White Jesus, is that you? ... Oh, s***!"

While he joked that he shouldn't have cursed in front of the religious figure, he repeated the expletive.

In response, the actor playing the faux Jesus said, "I didn't come here to make bad people feel good. I came here to make dead people alive. That's all I need from you is to show people the light -- the light of truth in you."

Afterward, the actor disappeared from the stage and West bent on his knees, presumably in a prayer stance. Then, he performed his 2004 single "Jesus Walks."

The faux Jesus showed up again later in the show, with backup dancers dressed in white bowing before him as he stood atop a mountain, Billboard reports.

Watch the Jesus dialogue, below (caution: language):

West's religion antics are nothing new. As stated, he was already singing about Jesus back in 2004. And his new album, also called "Yeezus," has a track called "I Am a God."
