Pence slams Joy Behar, ABC News over ‘religious intolerance’

Pence slams Joy Behar, ABC News over ‘religious intolerance’, by Todd Starnes.

Vice President Mike Pence delivering a jaw-dropping rebuke of ABC News after “The View” host Joy Behar compared Christianity to mental illness. …

“It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you. That’s called mental illness, if I’m not correct, hearing voices,” Behar declared. …

“To have ABC maintain a broadcast forum that compared Christianity to mental illness is just wrong,” Pence said Wednesday on C-SPAN. …

Pence said on C-SPAN that his faith is the most important thing in his life.

“My faith sustains me in all that I do,” he said. The vice president said “The View” hosts insulted the “vast majority of the American people who cherish faith.”

“It demonstrates how out of touch some in the mainstream media are with the faith and values of the American people that you could have a major network like ABC permit a forum for invective against religion like that,” he said.

Well, if hearing the voice God means that a Christian is mentally insane — then add my name to that list. Because — just like Vice President Pence — I too — have heard the voice of God.

And I suspect many faithful followers of Jesus have heard His voice — including Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Does Behar believe that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was mentally insane, too? …

But let’s be honest — had Joy Behar said about gay people what she said about Christians — she would’ve been fired on the spot and hauled out on the studio on live television.

All this story does is illustrate the hatefulness and ugliness of liberals. It is a good thing Behar did not say anything bad about Muslims then she would be in real trouble.
