Ryan Bomberger on Lecrae, Progressive Politics, and Double-Minded Artistry

Music artistry reaches people in ways that other forms of expression cannot. It’s why Christian artists who have a national platform have both opportunity and an incredible responsibility.

Today’s social media makes everything public. I find it funny when those employing it complain about unwanted responses. It’s a two-way street. Social media amplifies your voice and your feedback.

Recently, Christian hip-hop artist Lecrae posted the following defensive message on Facebook:

I’m a Christ follower.
I’m politically agnostic.
I don’t endorse abortion.
I hate racism and classism.
I’m not ashamed of my faith.
I’m not a Marxist.
I love my culture and heritage.
I don’t subscribe to American Churchianity.
I believe in the Bible.
I’m more complex than what I do for a living.
I’m not obligated to qualify these statements for strangers on the internet.
