#InMyFeelingsFriday: American Republican Jesus

For those who might not have heard of them, Gungor is contemporary Christian husband and wife duo. They’ve become increasingly political as of late with Trump’s presidency. They’re newest album “Archives” was released on March 1st and the track that has me in my feelings this week is track #18 “American Republican Jesus”.
The track hold’s nothing back, the first verse pretty much lays it all out.

White Jesus, why is Your goodness so bad?
Why are Your people so mad?
Why do You need so many old white racists
To gather Your cash?
White Jesus, I know the Donald’s Your Man
I know He carries Your plan
To purge all the world of all the non-white people
Lest they go cash

This administration has used Christianity and conservative values as a weapon against the masses. The song calls them out as what they are, “old white racists”. Because Gungor is a Christian band I was shocked that they would be vocal on this particular topic when some of their peers have stayed quiet or doubled down on their support of Trump. They’re risking alienating some of their listeners but maybe this song will wake them up.


White Jesus, oh how could You blame us
For doubting Your heavenly Father
Would burn us
For doubting Your heavenly Father
Would burn us
White Jesus
American Republic Jesus
