Best-selling Christian author and preacher Max Lucado was never consulted about being featured in a progressive Christian nonprofit’s anti-Donald Trump ad campaign that launched last week and includes audio from his interview with National Public Radio earlier this year.

The Christian Post reported on Friday that the left-leaning Faith in Public Life Action Fund recently launched a $300,000 anti-Trump ad campaign that features four different video ads highlighting the Republican nominee’s offensive comments about women.

As the ads attempt to target evangelical millennials and Catholic women, they will run from now until election night on a number of national and state news websites, including The Washington Post, The New York Times and USA Today.

One of the videos produced by the Washington, D.C.-based organization features remarks Lucado made during an interview with NPR in March.

As Lucado has spoken out a number of times in the past year about his opposition to Trump’s immoral behavior and attitude toward women, the ad uses audio of Lucado criticizing Trump for making fun of Fox News host Megyn Kelly’s menstrual cycle and for retweeting a fan who called Kelly a “bimbo.”

“I would not have said anything about Mr. Trump if he didn’t call himself a Christian,” Lucado is heard saying in the interview.
