MSNBC anchor Joe Scarborough suggested Christians and Catholics are “perverting the Gospel” and wrong to be pro-life because “Jesus never once talked about abortion.”
“As a Southern Baptist, I grew up reading the Bible – maybe a backslidin’ Baptist but I still know the Bible – Jesus never once talked about abortion. Never once, and it was happening back in ancient times. It was happening during his time. Never once mentioned it,” Scarborough said in a deep theological breakdown.
After claiming Christ was pro-abortion, Scarborough continued to rip on Christian and Catholic morality. “And for people perverting the Gospel of Jesus Christ down to one issue? It’s heresy,” the host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” continued.
Anybody who is “angry” over his comments have not read the Bible enough Scarborough claimed. “Why don’t you do something you haven’t done in a long time? Open the Bible, open the New Testament, read the red letters. You won’t see it there,” he added.
Continuing to ignorantly mock the Roman Catholic Church and Christianity, Scarborough ripped into pro-life Republican politicians who “believe that life begins at fertilization and ends at childbirth.”

Religious Conservatives criticized Scarborough for his inflammatory comments.
“Joe Scarborough claims Jesus never cared about the killing of innocent children in bizarre rant on MSNBC. I know his moral decline is not news — not by a long shot — but very sad to see someone say something this blasphemous,” Fox News’ Mollie Hemingway posted to Twitter.
“Oh, @JoeNBC. This is an unsurprising yet Biblically illiterate, theologically shallow, & logically inept statement that only a non-Christian could make,” Allie Beth Stucker, another Conservative influencer commented.
One Twitter user, noting reports that Scarborough cheated on his now ex-wife, added, “What do those red letters say about adultery @JoeNBC?”
Christianity and Catholicism have faced an alarming amount of political attacks over recent weeks. National File previously reported on the Atlantic’s hit piece on the Rosary and Catholicism.
