– Critics says Deitrick Haddon Christmas song is full of lustful lyrics
Pastor, gospel singer and music producer Deitrick Haddon has been receiving a lot of heavy criticism following the release of his Christmas songs which is fans believe is laced with inappropriate lyrics.
The 45years old star shared a clip of the song on Facebook last Thursday, calling it “a little taste of the new zaytoven and Deitrick Christmas record that will be dropping in few weeks!!”.
Rather than the usual celebration of Christ’s birth highlighted in traditional Christmas music, Haddon sings about a couple using the time to have sex.
“Let’s make love on Christmas. Stars are shining bright to set the mood for you and I. Let’s make love on Christmas baby. Underneath the mistletoe I won’t let you go till you feel the love between us,” Haddon sings in the clip.
The artist then gets more explicit in his lyrics.
Following the release of the clip, Deitrick has come under huge scrutiny from the Christian community who felt it was inappropriate to turn Christmas into a time to celebrate sex.
Popular internet preacher and Staff Sergeant Marcus Rogers shared in a video that he didn’t like the way Haddon and other Christian artists like him were trying to be too much like the world.
“So I just heard Deitrick Haddon’s new song, sexual, full of lust,” Rogers said. “Listening to the song he’s talking about laying up between some legs and eating milk and cookies. Just full of lust. Doesn’t really clarify from what I heard about being married. He just looks desperate to be secular and be like the world and the Bible says out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.”
Rogers urged prayers for Haddon and noted that “there comes a time when you should just know better.”
“When you’re in a certain position, a certain platform you should just know better because you are a representation of Christianity,” he said.
