    No, I can read, it declares no law shall prevent Rubio's free exercise.

    Should not the title read 'The FFRF go after Sen. Marco Rubio with guns blazing — this is why they’re dead wrong'?

    Why is the OP attributing this to the wrong group? Would he be intentionally misrepresenting his agenda through innuendo?

    Yes it does, mostly Atheist and Secularist.

Even a senator is allowed to say whatever he'd like, privately. If, however, it is the latter, then actually FFRF is correct in their complaint. By using an official government account to tweet out bible verses, it is, de facto, the government preaching a specific religion at you, which is an absolute Constitutional "no no".

    What about agnostics like me?

    Frankly, when I see a person like you touting his supposed Christianity while sporting an Arpaio avatar, a blatant racist, I want no part of it.

    A frenzy among journalists?

    I had to hear about it from you, and you're not a journalist, are you?

    Yeah...except when you look at the twitter account, it doesn't really read like a personal account. I'm not seeing a lot of posts about him, and his kids, the wife, the really cool dinner they had...you know, the stuff one reads on a personal twitter account.

    So, if it is his personal twitter account, why does he spend so much of it - pretty much all of it - tweeting out his senatorial events, his political agenda, and his policy goals? That sounds a lot like an official senatorial account. What am I missing? In what way is this a "personal" account?

    So, here's a thought. Perhaps Rubio should create an account specifically for his senatorial business, and keep his personal account for...well...personal shit. Then, He can tweet out bible verses to all of his personal followers, while keeping his status as a government official separate, and not have any misunderstanding about his government position being used to peddle religious propaganda. Just a thought...

    I really believe Rubio is sharing these Bible verses for personal reasons to encourage others. I don't see him starting a Theocracy anytime soon
