In a recent addition of Cuomo Prime Time, CNN’s Chris Cuomo offered viewers a secular humanist call to action, declaring that we do not “need help from above” to improve the state of America.
Cuomo’s statements would not be troubling if it weren’t for the fact that he claims to be Catholic.
“If you believe in one another and if [you] do the right thing for yourself and your community, things will get better in this country,” Cuomo said in the June 26th edition of the show. “You don’t need help from above. It’s within us.”

Back in 2016, Cuomo tweeted that he is “a Catholic. Faith is not something to hide nor is it a requirement.”

In spite of his claims to be Catholic, both Cuomo and his brother, New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo, are vehemently pro-abortion.
In an op-ed for Glamour, Chris Cuomo wrote that men “can’t just sit on the sidelines while women work to protect reproductive rights. If men support a woman’s right to choose, they need to get up and support it. I say that as a husband, a man of faith, and especially as a parent blessed with two daughters and a son.”
“My family is Catholic. I know well the Catholic teachings. It’s been easy for me to separate my faith from the laws in our country because we don’t live in a theocracy,” Cuomo went on. “We live in a democratic, secular state, where the burden is not to find a way to impose your faith on others. It’s the exact opposite—democracy is about making sure nobody can enforce their beliefs on you or anyone else. In a democracy we rely on science and data to guide our decisions.”
“It’s tricky to explain all of this to my kids,” Cuomo explained. “I know we’re raising them in a faith that, frankly, looks down on women, says women can’t have equal roles, can’t have equal power. And parents know: You can’t fool kids. My answer? What’s fundamental is the source of your faith. Believe in a wisdom bigger than your own; believe the simple message of God: love, mercy. That’s what I’ve tried to teach.”
Cuomo even recalled a conversation with his then-16-year-old daughter who wanted to attend a march in support of abortion: “She told me, ‘If I were to get pregnant today’—not something any father wants to contemplate about his 16-year-old—‘I could have an abortion and I wouldn’t have to tell you.’”
“Now I tell her: You do whatever you want as long as it’s on your own terms,” Cuomo continued. “And if you’re not sure, you can talk to me or talk to your mom (she’s the smarter one anyway).”
Cuomo’s statement on his show echoed controversial remarks made by his brother, who credited human effort with New York’s coronavirus stats taking a favorable downward turn.
“The number is down because we brought the number down,” Gov. Cuomo said back in April. “God did not do that. Faith did not do that. Destiny did not do that. A lot of pain and suffering did that … That’s how it works. It’s math. And if you don’t continue to do that, you’re going to see that number go back up. And that will be a tragedy if that number goes back up.”
