Easter came and went, but Americans won’t forget what Chuck Todd said about Good Friday

NBC News’ Chuck Todd made an absurd remark on Good Friday that left many wondering if he even understood the significance of the Christian holy day.

The “Meet the Press” host was roasted on Twitter after he offered his thoughts on Good Friday, noting that “any day can become ‘good,’” in a tweet.

“I don’t mean disrespect to the religious aspect of the day, but 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 wrote. “Works EVERY time.”

Christians view Good Friday as the day Jesus was crucified and died to pay the penalty for humanity’s sins, making the ultimate sacrifice to redeem mankind.

But Todd seemed to suggest that the day wasn’t just about the religious occasion, noting the crucifixion as the “religious aspect of the day.”

The Twitter heavens opened on the NBC host, unleashing a torrential downpour of criticism.

Many were convinced Todd was mocking Christianity with his ignorant tweet.

A few Twitter users wondered what the big deal was, or if Todd was not wrong.

But that minority was drowned out by the voices of many who were very clear about what the “good” in Good Friday really means.
