Worship pastor writes viral song calling out evangelical supporters of Trump

A worship pastor is gaining widespread attention for writing an anti-Trump song that calls out the 81 percent of white evangelical Christian voters who supported President Trump in 2016.

Daniel Deitrich, a pastor at South Bend City Church in South Bend, Ind., wrote “Hymn for the 81%” out of frustration with Trump’s evangelical support. 

“In 2016, 81 percent of white evangelical Christians voted for Donald Trump after, among other things, hearing an audio recording of him bragging about sexually assaulting women. 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,” Deitrich told Religion News Service in an interview explaining why he wrote the song.
