NBC’s Chuck Todd Doesn’t Understand Good Friday

Amber Athey | Media and Breaking News Editor

NBC News’ Chuck Todd said Friday that he likes to remind people on Good Friday that “any day can become ‘good,'” causing many to question if he understands the religious significance of the holiday.

Good Friday is celebrated by Christians as the day Jesus was crucified and paid the ultimate sacrifice to save humanity from its sins.

According to Romans 5:8, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

In a Friday tweet, Todd suggested that Good Friday is not a wholly religious day, referring to the crucifixion as the “religious aspect of the day.”

“I love the idea of reminding folks that any day can become ‘good,’ all it takes is a little selflessness on our own part,” he continued, implying that humans could ever be as selfless as God sending his only son to die for humans.

A number of Twitter users pointed out the absurdity of Todd’s tweet.

On top of hosting NBC’s “Meet the Press”, Chuck Todd also hosts “MTP Daily” on MSNBC. Fellow MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle was recently forced to apologize for mocking Larry Kudlow’s use of the phrase “God’s will.” (RELATED: MSNBC’s Ruhle Pokes Fun At Kudlow For Mentioning ‘God’s Will’)
