Joy Behar begged Vice President Mike Pence for forgiveness after she called his Christian faith a ‘mental illness. In an interview with Sean Hannity, Pence reveals how he reacted to her apology.
“I thought it was important for me to speak out. Not on my own behalf. You and I know that criticism comes with the public life. But I felt it was important that I defend the faith of tens of millions of Americans against that kind of slander. And I did so,” said Pence.
“I give joy a lot of credit. She picked up the phone. She called me. She was very sincere. And she apologized. And one of the things my faith teaches me is grace. Forgive as you have been forgiven,” said Pence.
“Well look, but I said to Joy, “of course, I forgive you.” That is part of my faith experience. But I did encourage her and I am still encouraging her to use the forum of that program or some other public forum to apologize to tens of millions of Americans who were equally offended by what she and people said,” said Pence.
“It makes me question the sincerity of it. Because you’re right, it wasn’t just a shot against you, it was against — I’m a Christian — anybody of faith,” responded Hannity. “But for me, it was never about me,” said Pence. Check out the video below.
