Author and Southern Baptist minister Alan Cross retweeted Robert George’s comments, adding that he hoped “more Christian leaders will step up here.”

“If favoring a comparison or yourself to the Messiah isn’t enough to get evangelicals to correct this man, then they are already gone and it is so sad. Then there is no truth and all else you support is a colossal sham,” Cross tweeted on Wednesday.

“My point is, if you support him, then speak to this. Guide him. Tell him how this doesn’t work. Help him understand … If he is friendly to evangelicals, then let them speak to him and tell him why this isn’t appropriate. Use the influence rightly.”
