Joy Behar recently made headlines after mocking Mike Pence’s Christianity and comparing it to a ‘mental illness.’ Mike Pence spoke out against the comment once, but in a recent interview with Ainsley Earhardt, Mike Pence said more.
“Joy Behar made a comment saying that that leads her to believe that you have mental problems because God speaks to you. Is it hypocrisy that liberals, Democrats, mainstream media, they preach tolerance but, yet, when someone wants to be a Christian and says that god speaks to them, they have a problem with that?” asked Earhardt.
“Those of us in public life are pretty accustomed to criticism. But when I heard that ABC had a program that likened my Christianity to mental illness, I just couldn’t be silent,” started Pence.
“My Christian faith is probably the most important thing in my life. I do try and start every day reading the Bible. My wife and I try and have a prayer together before I leave the house every morning. But I do think I’m a very typical American,” said Pence.
“People of all different faith, traditions, cherish their faith in God. And to have ABC have a forum that spoke in such demeaning terms, I think it’s evidence of how out of touch some in the mainstream media are with the faith and values of the American people,” said Pence.
