    “Give me that power to walk away when another God takes your place,” Kirk Franklin intones on an early June evening in New Orleans. The lights have gone blue in the Orpheum Theatre; he’s on the sixth night of the southern leg of his 20 Years In One Night tour, which began in March.

Franklin and his six backup singers perform “Give Me,” a martial call-and-response confessional. “Anyone can be saved,” he says. “Even Kanye.” Everybody reacts.

Everyone knows about the rumors of Kanye West’s involvement with the Illuminati and how could Kirk Franklin not know this? This is because he isn’t spiritually grounded and doing an alleged album with Kanye West is probably everything he’s ever dreamed of. We bet he will call this his way of reaching more of the world through his music when really he’s already too into the world to help anyone! That’s our two cents!
