Insane Clown Posse Admits They’re a Christian Band

Such confusing news.

ICP have been going for 20 years, always wearing clown make-up, which looks slightly lumpy because it’s painted over their goatees. They’ve been banned from performing in various cities where juggalos have been implicated in murders and gang violence. ICP have a fearsome reputation, fostered by news reports showing teenagers in juggalo T-shirts arrested for stabbing strangers and lyrics like “Barrels in your mouth/bullets to your head/The back of your neck’s all over the shed/Boomshacka boom chop chop bang.”

All of which makes Violent J’s recent announcement really quite astonishing: Insane Clown Posse have this entire time secretly been evangelical Christians. They’ve only been pretending to be brutal and sadistic to trick their fans into believing in God. They released a song, Thy Unveiling, that spelt out the revelation beyond all doubt:

Fuck it, we got to tell.
All secrets will now be told
No more hidden messages
…Truth is we follow GOD!!!
We’ve always been behind him
The carnival is GOD
And may all juggalos find him
We’re not sorry if we tricked you.

The news shook the juggalo community to its core. While some fans claimed they’d actually had an inkling, having deciphered some of the hidden messages in several songs, others said they felt deeply betrayed and outraged: they’d been innocently enjoying all those songs about chopping people up and shooting women, and it was Christian rock?

The standard response will undoubtedly be, “ICP might say they’re Christians, but they’re not real Christians.”

As if there’s some sort of accreditation board that gets to declare who’s a real Christian and who isn’t. Or perhaps some official department of Christian certification, wherein an applicant is approved as a “real Christian,” once they meet certain criteria.

This is one problem I see very often in nearly every religious body, and indeed I’ve already touched upon it earlier. When your world view is based on a particular interpretation of some arbitrary book, how can you rationally defend one as “true,” over other interpretations?

Insane Clown Posse might not fit the standard Christian stereotype (except for the fact that they seem to hate science), but that doesn’t mean they aren’t a Christian group. You have to have some sort of objective criteria if you want to be exclusive.

  1. turkey istanbul palyaço ve gösteri hizmetleri vermekteyiz. tahta bacak , sihirbaz , ateşbaz , animatör , clown , jonglör gibi gösteri hizmetleri sunmaktayız..

  2. I agree with your post 100%. There is absolutely no truth in either stance, “real” or “fake” Christian, other than what society portrays them as. It’s obvious society is anything but a reliable resource for any ounce of information. I’ve taken a liking to ICP. It doesn’t bother me at all what their true intentions were or weren’t. I enjoyed listening and still do. *shrug*. It was a great post. I hope you keep writing!

  3. IS there a video post saying the are 100% telling the truth? I heard there’s a video they saying they are not what people make out they are.

  4. Ephesians 4;29 “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

    First Peter 3:10 “For, whoever would love life and see good days must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from deceitful speech.”

    James 3:9-12 “With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be. Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? My brothers, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.”

    ICP needs to understand that we’re to be as Christ. There are so many verses in the bible that speak of our tongues, use of language and such that it would fill the page of this website.

    Many who call themselves Christians today believe you can do, say and act as everyone else in the world. This is seen mostly with younger people today who claim to be emergent or whatever. I don’t care what people think… I care about what the bible says.

    In the case of a certification board… yes and no. No as in I’m not, nor is anyone else. Yes, because the bible tells us how we should act.

    • Amen Brother the words you speck from the bible are truth for this bible readings dis not come from those who wrote them but by the Holy Sprit who was sent by God after Jesus went up into Heaven.

      As a salvation army soldier for over a year now I have known one thing if we are to win people over to Jesus to be saved we are not to speck like this world but to speck like Jesus if he was hear to day and that is love that God has showed us when Jesus went to the cross for our sins

  5. I will say one thing every time some one come on tv and says oh I am a Christian I all ways do a follow up on them to see if they are 100% real as Christian we must make sure that’s what we are we hot, warm or cold for Jesus? So when you said about the bible reads Black Jesus it made me thing okay we have to look at what there acting’s are befor we can say they are true follows of the cross.

  6. icp has donated many and they have always been good people they had to attract those fans to get them close into good they are the closest thing to hero’s that I have ever seen. the fans ruined icp.

      • No i think they should be classified into there own catigory icp is unique in there own way and they basicly introduce christianity in a creative way that apeals to people who are lost or dark. But they are underground and im not sure if christainity would be the. They would be there own genre and catagory. Say unique genre or christianity for the broken. Or the hope genre. Because they give hope to those in pain . But take hollywood undead and the song levitate. From what ive studied it is a christian song but hollywood undead is about as dark as icp. Or look at bring me the horizon. They may be screamo but the hospital for souls is christian to me. Because what do you think a hospital for souls is. A church. Truth is icp getting all this hate is bull. Its just because they are successful with out media gelp. And because there fans dont care bout the hate we continue to show love. Thats what a juggalo is. A unity and a group of people who share the same love for each other as much as they do for icp.
