What’s Wrong With People? Rubio Ignites Twitter By Quoting The Bible

Sen. Marco Rubio is one of those Christians who isn’t afraid to share his faith. But some don’t like that in a politician–so when Rubio shared some scripture on Twitter, they couldn’t leave it alone.

Two tweets (here and here)…


brought these insane responses.


This one is particularly snotty, saying that Rubio shouldn’t quote scripture on his own Twitter page because he “identifies as US senator.”

Here’s a particularly mean-sprited swipe at families who are victims of tragedies.

What is wrong with these people? Can’t they let someone express their religion without making jackasses of themselves?

Have they even read the First Amendment? It protects religious speech and practice from the government, not the other way around.

Rubio took all this in stride. tweeting “Really? I triggered a @Twitter freakout by quoting the #Bible”

Yes, sir, unfortunately for our country, God is not popular right now. But for those who really think Rubio is “hiding behind religion,” feel free to watch him share the Gospel and give an answer to an atheist (during his 2016 campaign). The man is for real.
