Progressive Christian leaders are calling out the Republican nominee for president on an issue they think has become a very big problem in this presidential election. 

Faith leaders from around the state believe Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump should repent for what they believe to be misogynistic behavior and violent speech towards women.

Kate Shaner, a pastor at First Community Church in Columbus explains that, because Trump says he’s a Christian, he should reevaluate the words he uses when he talks about women.

“Speaking in those terms. Alienating 50% of God’s people and God’s creation is not what Jesus taught us,” said Shaner.

The group of women clergy put out a mobile billboard that plays a commercial against what Trump has said, such as the leaked video talking about acts that many view as sexual assault.

The Trump campaign has not yet returned a request for comment.

Update 11/4/16 11:50 a.m.:

Trump’s Ohio campaign spokesperson said the Republican presidential nominee was getting “amazing support from the Christian community and people of faith across Ohio because he will appoint Supreme Court Justices who respect the Constitution, is pro-life, and has respect for religious liberty.”
