Mr Pence told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Monday that “The View” host Joy Behar called him to say sorry for making fun of Christian beliefs.
Mr Pence said he also asked her to extend her apologies to “tens of millions of Americans who were equally offended” during the conversation.
“I give Joy Behar a lot of credit. She picked up the phone. She called me. She was very sincere, and she apologised and one of the things my faith teaches me is grace; forgive as you’ve been forgiven,” Pence told Hannity.
“I’m still encouraging her, to use the forum of that program or some other public forum, to apologise to tens of millions of Americans who were equally offended,” Pence said.
On 13th February, Behar, who’s also a comedian, attacked Mr Pence’s faith on ‘The View’ after a clip was played with the former White House adviser Omarosa Manigault Newman claiming on a reality programme that “Jesus tells him to say things”.
Behar said: “That’s called mental illness… if I’m not correct, he’s hearing voices.”
Pence said he felt it was important that he defend the faith of millions of Americans against that kind of slander. Back in February he said his faith wasn’t “unusual”.
“I think I’m a very typical American – whatever your faith traditions, people understand that,” he said.
“I just think it demonstrates how out of touch some in the mainstream…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
