In the wake of Kanye West releasing Jesus Is King on Friday afternoon (Oct. 25), fans are turning to Twitter in droves to share their reactions to the gospel rap album.
“Bro Kanye finna turn be back into a Christian,” one fan hilariously tweeted after hearing the long-awaited overtly spiritual project featuring West’s Sunday Service Choir, Ty Dolla $ign, Clipse, Kenny G and others.
Several listeners also took note of standout track “Closed On Sunday,” posting a number of hilarious memes connected to West’s shout-out of popular fast food chain Chik-Fil-A in the song’s reverential lyrics. (“Closed on Sunday/ You my Chik-Fil-A/ Hold the selfies/ Put the ‘gram away/ Get your family/ Y’all hold hands and pray.”) Prior to dropping Jesus Is King, the rapper announced that he’d be releasing a second Christian-centric album — appropriately titled Jesus Is Born — on Christmas Day.

Me: Organized religion preys on the poor to keep the rich wealthy.
Also me: Kanye been acting like an asshole lately. He’s cancelled.
