Since 2016, 4 buddies who met on-line—Amanda Glover, Melanie Cress, Yaki Kostelec, and Kyle Cover—have had a operating group chat, primarily to speak about three issues: Woman Gaga, Minions, and God.
Every was raised non secular inside totally different denominations of Christianity, and the foursome discovered connection by means of their churchgoing, pre-Web childhoods and shared queer identities. “We [each] had these, like cursed experiences with faith rising up,” explains Cover. Their digital house to share God memes invoked the very query of God, successfully interrogating the group’s estranged non secular roots and rekindling their true perception that God loves them and there was nothing they may do about it.
In 2018, they made their personal chat public-facing, earlier than the eyes of God and of Instagram. The deal with @ineedgodineverymomentofmylife took inspiration from this unofficial Minions picture. As a result of Instagram’s character limitations, the ‘single’ was dropped.
