"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. "You don't need help from above; it's within us."

CNN host Chris Cuomo told viewers that they do not need "help from above," but instead suggested that if you believe in one another and do the right thing for yourself and your community, "things will get better."

"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 announced.

"You don't need help from above; it's within us."

Christians found this message offensive, and they noted that on social media.

Allie Beth Stuckey took to Twitter on Tuesday, tweeting: "Chris Cuomo: 'You don’t need help from above; it's within us.' Yep, that tactic is working SUPER well right now!"

Nick Pickowicz tweeted: "The spirit of this age."

Cuomo stopped short, however, of advising views on exactly what the "right" thing to do is. In his statement against belief in a higher power, he seemingly dismissed the fact that many people find a basis for moral action in religion, and that without this guidance, many find it hard to uncover a justification for moral behaviour.

Cuomo mocked people for resorting to prayer in moments of pain, suffering, and loss in 2018, as well.

At that time, he said: "First, I would like to offer my thoughts and prayers, because that’s what you do when you offer ‘Thoughts and prayers’. You mock those who lost loved ones because if you gave it any thought at all, you would never walk away from any of these without figuring out a better way to deal with them."

“And prayer?” Cuomo added, “You think leaving it to God is the answer?”

“So what are you praying for? What would it take?” Cuomo asked then offered a strange proposition: “How about a stadium full of children of the most influential people in our society, all holding puppies. What if they were all shot and killed. Would we act? Oh, don’t be ridiculous—more ridiculous than doing nothing? Time after time?”
