Joy Behar Publicly Apologizes to Pence for Remarks Disparaging Christians

Screengrab

On Monday night, Vice President Mike Pence sat down for an interview with Sean Hannity, and one of the topics of conversation that came up was an incident on The View last month in which Behar mocked Pence as having a "mental illness" for suggesting that Jesus talks to him. "It's another thing when Jesus talks to you", Behar said. "She was very honest, and she apologized and one of the things my faith teaches me is grace; forgive as you've been forgiven", he added.

"When I heard that ABC had a program where my Christian faith had been described as a mental illness, I thought it was important for me to speak out", Pence said.

But Pence believes Behar offended so many more people of faith other than him, so he encouraged her "to make the same apology publicly on the show that she did privately to him".

After running the clip of Pence's request, Behar said, "Yeah". She picked up the phone.

Hannity told Pence that his faith also taught him to forgive but added, "I'm not as good at it as you".

No matter how far Left she is, Behar revealed she agreed with the conservative Pence. I was raised to respect everyone's religious faith and I fell short of that.

I was quite nervous, I haven't been in this position for a while and it means the world to me. I told Vern I was struggling to breathe and my legs went numb.

Not surprisingly, she had no such criticisms for the liberal Oprah Winfrey, who said she would run for president only if God told her to do so.

Reacting to the comment, Pence criticized ABC when asked about Behar's words, saying he wanted to just laugh about it but could not let it slide. According to one poll conducted in 2015, almost two-thirds of Americans (63 percent) say Christians are facing intolerance and that is up from half just two years prior.

Her co-host Sunny Hostin said she does not appreciate Pence speaking in tongues, even though she is a person of faith, according to Charisma News.

"What do you say to the tens of millions of Christians, and President Trump supporters, that your networks have so blatantly offended and ascribed hateful labels?" shareholder Justin Danhof asked Iger directly at Thursday's meeting.

"Joy Behar apologised to Vice President Pence directly".

Because of the controversy surrounding the comment, Bob Iger, the CEO of Disney, which owns ABC, directed Behar to personally offer her apology to Pence. Danhof asked. "Specifically, do you think, like Mrs. Hostin and Mrs. Behar, that the Christian faith is akin to a unsafe mental illness?"
