Apologies: on Monday, Kyle delivered an eight-minute apology to The Kyle and Jackie O Show in which he expressed his sincere regret that he said the Virgin Mary was promiscuous
& # 39; Based on the firm belief in divine love, mercy and forgiveness, expressed both in the Bible and in the Holy Quran, we are convinced that believers who were wounded and gathered peacefully and prayerfully outside the radio station, also will accept the apologies offered and forgive without any shadow of constant resentment, in a spirit of peace and reconciliation.
& # 39; We all try to build peace and harmony in our multicultural society, based on mutual respect of beliefs and religious freedom. We hope that this unfortunate incident will be a step in the direction of a more attentive and respectful dialogue. & # 39;
On September 18, Kyle outraged Christian and Muslim groups by saying that the Virgin Mary was not really a virgin and had become pregnant & # 39; behind a camel stable & # 39 ;.
After issuing a pronunciation via his PR team and when he apologized for the second time face paparazzi outside his home in Los Angeles last week, Kyle spoke directly to his listeners for the first time on Monday.
