A worship pastor in South Bend, Ind., is getting attention for a song he wrote “calling out” evangelical supporters of President Trump.
Daniel Deitrich, the pastor for arts and worship at South Bend City Church, wrote “Hymn for the 81%,” a reference to white evangelical Christian voters who helped secure Trump’s victory 2016, as “a plea…to come home to the way of Jesus.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The anti-Trump pastor’s song has over 400,000 views on YouTube. The lyrics accuse Trump evangelicals of “putting kids in cages, ripping mothers from their babies” and “weaponiz[ing] religion.”
In December, Deitrich praised a California church’s “nativity” scene which portrayed Joseph, Mary and baby Jesus in cages. He wrote, “This is amazing and challenging and I love it.”

I released a new song today.
In 2016, 81% of white evangelical Christians voted for Donald Trump after (among other things) hearing an audio recording of him bragging about sexually assaulting women. https://t.co/sz4Q7OR8Ia pic.twitter.com/k2YC5ihbH3
