Do you remember when Christian hymns were written to glorify God and focus on the person and work of Jesus Christ? Those were good times, but the times have changed. An Indiana pastor and songwriter named Daniel Deitrich has written a new hymn entitled, “For the 81%,” which is written to shame the 81% of evangelicals who voted for Donald Trump.
Oddly enough, Deitrich pastors a church in the hometown of Democrat presidential candidate, Pete Buttigieg, an out-and-proud homosexual who says that pro-life folks have no business in the Democrat Party. The South Bend pastor at South Bend City Church hasn’t had anything negative to say of Buttigieg.
Deitrich wrote on Youtube…
“Even after enacting deliberately cruel policies to rip families apart and put children in cages at the southern border, evangelical support is as fervent as ever.”
Trump’s border policies are identical to those of Barack Hussein Obama, but leftists seem to find a way to credit Trump with their invention. The only two alternatives to separating children from their criminal parents is to incarcerate children with their criminal parents (thus putting them at risk) or by letting them go freely into the United States even though they are illegal. Leftists prefer the latter, and they seem disinterested into the reality that thousands of kids are being sex-trafficked into the nation through the border by adults they’re not even related to who merely pose as parents.
Deitrich claims he was raised Christian values, which make him vote for someone other than Trump.
“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. I have been so confused and deeply saddened by the unflinching loyalty to a man who so clearly embodies the opposite of these values.”
Of course, Jesus did not say “fight for justice for the oppressed” or anything remotely close to that. Deitrich was espousing the views of Liberation Theology, a South American doctrine formulated by Marxists and Jesuits in the 1970s which teaches that “overthrowing oppression” and “fighting for justice” are somehow major themes (and purpose) of the Bible.
One wonders how advocating for infanticide, LGBTQ celebration, and theft by wealth redistribution (all platforms of the Democratic Party) mesh with Jesus’ admonitions to love our neighbor.
In what he described (seriously) as “an angry middle-finger to the listener,” the song says…
You said speak the truth
I’m calling you out
Why don’t you live the words
That you put in my mouth
In unbelievable self-unawareness, the songwriter complained about “ripping mothers from their babies,” a line he attributed to Trump immigration policy. It seemed beyond his capacity to understand that millions of babies are ripped from their mothers annually thanks to Democrat policies that Trump opposes.

The song ends with repeating the term “come home,” implying that Trump supporters are lost.
His church refuses to say whether or not homosexuality is sinful, but their website makes clear they are LGBTQ affirming, and they advertise their willingness to perform gay weddings.
