NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK – Comedian Joy Behar of “the View” – a televised left-leaning feminist group discussion forum – privately apologized to Vice President Mike Pence and then publicly apologized to over 2.2 billion Christians for offending them and slandering their religion, Christianity, by equating talking to Jesus Christ with mental illness.
Back on February 13, on “The View”, the panel of hosts (which consists of four liberal Democrats and one conservative Republican) reacted to the claim of former White House aide Omarosa Manigault on the “Celebrity Big Brother” show that Vice President Mike Pence “thinks Jesus tells him to say things.” Co-host Sonny Hostin and co-host Joy Behar (two of the four liberals) chimed in, with Ms. Hostin stating, “I don’t know that I want my vice president, um-speaking in tongues and having Jesus speak to him.” Joy Behar added, “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you. That’s called mental illness, if I’m hearing voices. Can he talk to Mary Magdalene without his wife in the room?”
These denigrating remarks led to a firestorm reaction by offended Christians. After the outrageous statement, ABC (which broadcasts “The View”) received over 30,000 angry calls from offended Christians with 6,000 of them contacting “The View’s advertisers – Home Advisor, Gerber, Oreo and Clorox.
In response, Ms. Behar called Vice President Pence on the phone and personally apologized to him for ridiculing the way he practices his religion. The vice president magnanimously accepted her apology, but encouraged her to make a public apology to all Christians which she did today.
“The View’s conservative Republican co-host Ainsley Ehrhardt, while on the conservative Talk Show “Fox and Friends” back on Wednesday, February 14, said of Joy Behar (who is Italian-American and was actually raised Catholic), “She doesn’t know the joy and the love that He provides for so many people.”
