"It is just simply wrong for ABC to have a television program that expresses that kind of religious intolerance," Pence said at an event sponsored by Axios.

His comments came a day after "The View" co-host Joy Behar said Pence hearing Jesus speak to him was the same as hearing voices.

"It's one thing to talk to Jesus," Behar said. "It's another thing when Jesus talks to you. That's called mental illness if I'm not correct. That's hearing voices."

Pence told Axios’ Mike Allen on Wednesday that he heard “ABC has a program” that compared his faith to mental illness , before accusing the network of allowing a forum that mocks the faith tradition of millions of Americans.

Hosts Joy Behar and Sherri Shepherd discussed Pence ’s claims during “ The View .” On Wednesday, Vice President Mike Pence responded by accusing “ The View ” of exhibiting “ religious intolerance ” after the talk show’s hosts had attempted to compare his religious views with “ mental illness .”

The show's hosts were discussing former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman appearing on "Celebrity Big Brother" and saying that Pence "thinks Jesus tells him to say things."

Co-host Sherri Shepherd began to defend Pence, saying as a Christian, she also talks to Jesus, but added, "What concerns me is how long is the conversation with Jesus?"

Pence said "The View" insulted the vast majority of Americans who practiced any kind of faith and showed how "out of touch some in the mainstream media are."

Manigault-Newman called Pence "extreme" and said Americans would be begging for Trump to come back if Pence became president.

The former "Apprentice" contestant also said on "Big Brother" that she was "haunted" by Trump's tweets and said operations inside the White House are "so bad."

The White House responded last week to Manigault-Newman's claims and attempted to minimize her role in the administration with deputy press secretary Raj Shah saying not to take her comments too seriously.

"Omarosa was fired three times on 'The Apprentice' and this was the fourth time we let her go," Shah said.
