GOP Representative Max Miller Criticizes Christian Woman as ‘Intolerant’ for Sharing Her Religious Beliefs

A former Ohio Republican congresswoman’s recent social media post was labeled as “intolerant” by a current Ohio Republican representative.

On Tuesday, Lizzie Marbach, the Communication Director for Ohio Right to Life, tweeted, “Our only hope lies in placing our faith solely in Jesus Christ.” Her post gained over 1.3 million views by Wednesday.

In response, Max Miller, a Jewish Congressman representing Ohio’s 7th district, who had been appointed to the Trump administration’s Holocaust Memorial council, offered a sarcastic retort.

“God says that Jewish people are the chosen ones, but yet you say we have no hope,” Rep. Miller replied.

Despite the congressman’s criticism, Ms. Marbach remained steadfast and unapologetic.

“Sorry, Congressman, but these are the words of Jesus himself,” Marbach responded.

“Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me’,” she continued.

“No one has hope outside of Jesus Christ and every knee will bow one day declaring that Jesus Chris is Lord.”

Miller seemed to have grown weary of the debate with Marbach, and he firmly instructed her to remove her initial post.

“This is one of the most bigoted tweets I have ever seen,” he exclaimed in a retweet of Marbach’s original post. “Delete it, Lizzie. Religious freedom in the United States applies to every religion.”

“You have gone too far,” he concluded the viral tweet viewed 6.5 million times by Wednesday morning.

Representative Casey Weinstein, a Democrat from Ohio, reportedly joined Miller’s request for the removal of the Marbach post, as reported by The Jewish Chronicle.

“We may be on opposite sides of the aisle, but I stand with Max on this,” said Rep. Weinstein, in a since-deleted tweet. “Delete it, Lizzie.”

During the later hours of Tuesday evening, Miller issued an apology for his previous tweet in which he referred to Marbach’s tweet as bigoted.

“I posted something earlier that conveyed a message I did not intend,” he said. “I will not try to hide my mistake or run from it. I sincerely apologize to Lizzie and to everyone who read my post.”
