Jewish congressman apologizes after calling Christian’s tweet ‘bigoted’ 

Rep. Max Miller had told the pro-life activist her message denied other faiths' religious freedom.

Columbus-based group Ohio Right to Life fired Elizabeth Marbach, its communications director, after she posted on social media that there is “no hope for any of us” outside of faith in Jesus.

Rep. Max Miller (R-Ohio)—who told JNS earlier this year “I’m not afraid that I’m Jewish”—took issue with Marbach’s tweet. (His wife, Emily Moreno Miller, is on the Ohio Right to Life board.)

“This is one of the most bigoted tweets I have ever seen. Delete it, Lizzie,” the congressman wrote. “Religious freedom in the United States applies to every religion. You have gone too far.”

Hours later, he 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.

Marbach remained fired, but she posted that she is pleased that so many—2.4 million, per X (formerly Twitter)—have viewed her post about the New Testament.
