'The View' host Joy Behar apologizes for Christianity comment

Tuesday at the opening of "The View" Behar apologized for her comments mocking the idea that the vice president heard the voice of Jesus during the February 13 episode.

"I think Vice President Pence is right".

"I sincerely apologize for what I said", Behar added. "I'd like to be light about it, but I really can't - not for my sake, but for the tens of millions of Americans who cherish their faith, I just, I can't be silent".

"You know, I give Joy Behar a lot of credit", Pence told Fox News' Sean Hannity on Monday.

On an episode of "The View" last month, Ms. Behar agreed with co-host Sunny Hostin's discomfort with "my vice president, um - speaking in tongues and having Jesus speak to him". Iger revealed in his response to that question that Behar had personally apologized to Pence.

"Like I said before, it's one thing to talk to Jesus".

When former White House staffer and reality show star Omarosa Manigault spoke of Pence on her new show "Big Brother", she alleged that the vice president heard the voice of Jesus. Danhof asked. "Specifically, do you think, like Mrs. Hostin and Mrs. Behar, that the Christian faith is akin to a unsafe mental illness?"

After receiving backlash from conservative viewers however, Behar privately called Pence to apologize for her remarks. He also expressed his wishes during that time that ABC, which is owned by Disney, to be associated with a television program that airs religious intolerance.

"I said to Joy, 'Of course, I forgive you".

As of Thursday, Behar had not publicly apologized to Pence on "The View".

MRC President Brent Bozell issued a statement declaring that Behar's private apology was "not almost enough" and promised to continue his campaign against "anti-Christian bigotry" at the network. "I would like to apologize to him and his family in particular".

"The bigoted statements made about the Vice President's Christian faith offended hundreds of millions of Christians across the country, the largest faith group in the United States", Bozell told Fox News.
