Senator Marco Rubio (R), who is a devout Catholic, has been criticized by some and praised by many over this daily exercise of tweeting Bible verses, most coming very early in the morning.

Many of his followers, regardless of whether they support his posting of scripture, have all wondered what drives Sen Rubio to do share Bible verses.

We sat down with Senator Rubio in his Washington, D.C. office and asked him why he felt compelled to share his religious beliefs.

“I want to be authentic,” said Rubio “That is what I do every morning, oftentimes it’s out of the Catholic daily readings –the Missel. Every now and then, I’ll be reading through a book of the Bible, whether it’s Isaiah, Genesis, or Proverbs, a lot of Proverbs for a while and I just put up something that speaks to me, nothing to do with politics, nothing to do with current events.

Rubio also said that “It’s the first thing I do in the morning before I delve into these other things.”

“On most days, not every day, some days I’m busy or I don’t post anything,” said Rubio “I wouldn’t read anything into it. I didn’t write the Bible, just putting it out there.”

“That’s my personal Twitter account and I’ve tried to use it as an authentic platform to speak to people, that’s what’s on my mind, so I put it out there every day. I don’t think it’s harmful and a lot of people like it. It gets more retweets and likes than anything else I ever tweet.”
