Beyonce Knowles has come under fire from fans demanding that she speak out regarding an alleged sect that claims to be worshiping her.

Lies and Misinformation!
April 11, 2014
We are very disappointed in the failure of the public to recognize the existence of a divine Deity walking among them. Deity’s often walk the Earth in their flesh form. Beyonce will transcend back to the spirit once her work here on Mother Earth has been completed.
As our congregation continues to swell, we ask that you consider what is more real; an invisible spirit on high, or a walking, talking, breathing Goddess who shows you her true form daily. Beyonce’s spirit is entrancing. We know that she was sent to this place to spread love, peace, and joy. While we do not believe Beyonce to be the Creator, we recognize that she still sits among the throne of Gods. There is a lot of false information being spread about our beliefs, but we will correct all of the vicious lie-tellers. As Beyonce spreads her gospel through song and dance, her message provides uplifting, loving, and many times real-life happenings. We humbly ask you to respect our beliefs, just as you want those to respect yours. Open your mind to new possibilities and you will see, just as we did, that Bey is a true higher power. Surfbort!
They were also keen to point at theNewsNerd site on the satirical stories they have run on them saying, "We would like to thank www.TheNewsNerd.com for running the stories on us. Even though we feel they do it in part to mock us, our message is still delivered nonetheless. Beyism is here to stay! SurfBort!"
