MSNBC analyst: ‘If Jesus were alive today, he would be called a groomer’

Matthew Dowd, MSNBC analyst and self-professed Christian, said on Wednesday that if “Jesus were alive today, he would be called a groomer” as well as “woke” and a “socialist.”

The egregious statement came during a discussion on “Deadline: White House” where host Nicolle Wallace was discussing Michigan Republican state Sen. Lana Theis who accused her Democratic colleague Sen. Mallory McMorrow of wanting to “groom” young children.

Dowd was asked to chime in when the conversation turned to faith, and he used the opportunity to bash Republicans and the conservative interpretation of the religion.

“This is something that I have tried to talk about: Being a Christian, having grown up Catholic, having been an altar boy and all of that – how the faith has been captured by a small segment of our society who have tried to define it in a way that Jesus never had defined it, and actually the opposite way of Jesus,” he explained.

That’s when he dropped the bomb in a very smug fashion.

“The entire message of the gospels of the Easter holidays was love one another. And I have said this before, and I’ll say it again: If Jesus Christ was alive today, He would be called a groomer, He would be called woke, and He would be called a socialist if He was alive today.”

Naturally, the accusation rubbed many Twitter users the wrong way:
