Rep. Max Miller (R-OH) is facing fierce backlash after he called out a woman on Twitter for her message about the Christian faith.

“There’s no hope for any of us outside of having faith in Jesus Christ alone,” Lizzie Marbach wrote.

In response, the Jewish Republican lawmaker posted a scathing reply.

“This is one of the most bigoted tweets I have ever seen,” he wrote. “Delete it, Lizzie.”

“Religious freedom in the United States applies to every religion,” he continued. “You have gone too far.”

Even Rep. Ilhan Omar said the congressman had crossed the line.

“No! “Stating the core beliefs or principles of your faith isn’t bigoted as Lizzie did, its religious freedom and no one should be scolded for that. It’s also wrong to speak about religious freedom while simultaneously harassing people who freely express their beliefs,” she said.

Not only does the congressman believe that professing faith in Jesus Christ is bigoted, but he also seems to believe that Christians should be silenced in the public marketplace.

The congressman later apologized.

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