Todd Starnes spoke with Dr. Robert Jeffress, Senior Pastor of the First Baptist Church in Dallas and Fox News Contributor, about the support he received for his service celebrating America as a Christian nation, including a letter he received from Vice President Pence.
"We were overwhelmed by the support we received from all over the country, again due in large part to you getting the word out. We were flooded with calls from Christians, churches, one pastor from a prominent church here in Dallas came to our service and he said, 'I just wanted to stand with you, I am First Baptist Dallas.' And then I was very surprised to get an unsolicited letter form the Vice President and I was asked to read it to the congregation, which I did. Now he didn't weigh in on the controversy, but he was aware obviously of what was going on and wanted to congratulate our church for celebrating the freedom we have as Americans," Dr. Jeffress said.
