Kanye West has recently been making headlines, as a number of his key business partners have ended their professional relationships with him. The reason for this has been Kanye’s string of antisemitic comments, which have come in the form of interviews and tweets.
As a result of these antisemitic statements, hate groups around the nation have actually staged demonstrations in Kanye’s honor, even holding up signs that say, “Kanye is right about the Jews.”
It is also public knowledge that Kanye lives with a Bipolar I diagnosis.
Since Kanye is someone who not only has influence in evangelical circles but in the country at large, we thought it important to sit down and discuss the history of antisemitism, particularly with regard to Christian thinking, as well as how to respond to some of the mental health concerns that may be at play in this situation, both with conviction and compassion.
