US Vice President Mike Pence has responded to criticisms and insults about his faith.
In an interview with Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), Pence said: “The Bible says, ‘count it all joy’ when you endure trials of many kinds.
“Any time I’m criticised for my belief in Jesus Christ, I just breathe a prayer of praise.”

Pence has been mocked for his strong Christian views and beliefs a number of times
American talk show host and comedian Joy Behar publically apologised earlier in the year claiming Pence had a “mental illness” as he believed Jesus speaks to him.
A book released this week, The Shadow President: The Truth About Mike Pence by authors Michael D’Antonio and Peter Eisner labels the vice president as “the most successful Christian supremacist in American history”.
When told during the CBN interview that he’s been ‘under attack’, Pence replied: “‘I really don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it.
“This is a nation of faith. We’ll continue to stand for the things that we believe in.”
