Vice President Mike Pence struck back against Joy Behar’s vicious anti-religious comments on Wednesday, blasting the liberal comedian after she openly compared Christianity to having a “mental illness.”

“To have ABC maintain a broadcast forum that compared Christianity to mental illness is just wrong,” Pence told C-SPAN this week. “It is simply wrong for ABC to have a television program that expresses that kind of religious intolerance.”

“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 added.

The Vice President was referring to Behar’s fiery rhetoric while discussing former Trump advisor Omarosa Manigault’s baseless assertion that Pence believes “Jesus tells him to say things.”

“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 told her fellow ‘View’ cohosts.
