More than 10,000 Christians plead with a US Pastor to stop Kayne West opening a school on church land

by Alex Collett

Over 10,000 Christians in the US are calling on a Californian pastor to put a stop to Kayne West opening a school on his church land. 

The rapper plans to rent a space on the grounds of Pastor Roland Nagin's Cornerstone Christian Church, in LA, in order to open his Donda Academy.

However many Christians have expressed their concern and are against the idea of him renting the space.

They have signed a letter to Pastor Nagin, and have criticised Mr West for his comments on antisemitism and his open praise of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. 

In the letter as reported by The Jerusalem Post, opposing Christians said: "There is no room in God's house for hatred. Allowing Ye's Donda Academy to operate out of a place of worship would give it and him credibility that at this point they do not deserve."

Faithful America campaigner Karli Thompson said in a statement, as also reported by The Jerusalem Post: "As fellow Christians, we strongly object to the possibility of Cornerstone Church renting space to Ye, further normalizing antisemitism and conspiracy theories." 

Speaking to TMZ, Ye believes the church would be suitable for Donda Academy, as his priority is providing Christian education.
