Evangelical Singer Calls Out Trump’s ‘81%’
Here is one 'Christian pop' artist who is not a part of President Donald Trump's support base.The Huffington Post says Daniel Deitrich has written a song calling fellow Christians to task for their support of the president.
“This song might ruffle some feathers, but maybe some feathers need to be ruffled,” he said.
The song is title Hymn For the 81% referring to the percentage of American Evangelicals who support the Trump agenda. Mr. Deitrich is clearly not among them.
In the song he maintains that supporting the president is not compatible with "Christian" values:
“I learned to take the words of Jesus seriously ― love God, love your neighbor, feed the hungry, fight for justice for the oppressed. I thought that things like love, kindness, gentleness, and self-control MATTERED,” he said. “I have been so confused and deeply saddened by the unflinching loyalty to a man who so clearly embodies the opposite of these values.”
