The faith adviser to Florida Sen. Marco Rubio's presidential campaign held a handmade sign to protest outside Donald Trump's meeting with evangelical leaders on Tuesday, according to Yahoo News.

Eric Teetsel, an evangelical political activist, was going to speak out against the presumptive GOP nominee outside the meeting with evangelicals in New York, but made the handmade sign on the spur of the moment.

The poster message read: "Torture is not pro-life. Racism is not pro-life. Misogyny is not pro-life. Murdering the children of terrorists is not pro-life."

He included a Scripture verse Proverbs 29:2, which says: "When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan."

Teetsel was in New York for a meeting with Better for America, a group that is ramping up plans for an independent candidate to give voters an alternative to Trump and likely Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

According to Yahoo News, Teetsel felt it was his Christian responsibility to warn potential voters about Trump's beliefs.

"Christians are called to live out the Gospel in every aspect of their lives, including politics. It matters. It's important. But we have to be sure that we are representing the Gospel in truth," Teetsel said.

Voters of faith may not be "genuinely torn" on which way to vote for president. He suggested that neither candidate is ideal for those voters.

Pastor Michael Anthony attended Trump's evangelical meeting and said the meeting was a moving experience that could convict voters of Trump's sincerity.

"I saw a different Trump than I'd seen on television," Anthony said, according to Townhall. "I think God was speaking through him at that moment, to the church, to tell us why are you being silent about the most important thing in your lives?"

Trump told evangelical leaders that the First Amendment gave them the right to express their views, Anthony added, but that the leaders don't use it.
