Anti-Trump Evangelicals contrast Trump and Jesus in Michigan billboards

As Joe Biden's national lead against Trump in national polls grows, even evangelicals are piling on. The non-profit evangelical group Vote Common Good just put up this billboard in Michigan cities Holland and Grand Rapids as part of their "His Words Matter" anti-Trump campaign.

From Detroit Free Press:

The billboards juxtapose quotes from the president with the words of Jesus.

One billboard, for example, shows an image of Jesus with the phrase "Turn the other cheek," drawn from Jesus's words in Matthew 5:39, next to an image of Trump and the words "I'd like to punch him in the face," a comment Trump made about a protester who was removed from one of his 2016 campaign rallies.

"What we're trying to do is make sure that people in the Grand Rapids-Holland area have a chance to really talk about how Donald Trump's behavior as president and his public statements sit in relationship to how they hold their own Christian faith," said Doug Pagitt, executive director of Vote Common Good. "We thought to contrast his public statements with quotes from Jesus would be an effective way for people to be invited into that conversation."

The group will spend $75,000 on anti-Trump billboards from now until Election Day.
