The View’s Joy Behar Issues Public Apology Over Insult to Christians

The View’s Joy Behar Issues Public Apology Over Insult to Christians

“I think Vice President Pence is right.”

In February, View co-host Joy Behar insulted Vice President Mike Pence, as well as millions of Christians, by describing Pence’s faith as a form of mental illness. This week, she finally apologized on the air.

It all began with this comment from Behar, via FOX News:

“As bad as you think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence… everyone that is wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their life,” she said in the clip. “I am Christian, I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things.”

The talk-show panelists pondered what Omarosa’s motive was, before Sunny Hostin chimed in, “I think what’s interesting is that she said Jesus tells Mike Pence things to say.”

Joy Behar then said: “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you.”

Behar said hearing voices is a “mental illness” before Sherri Shepard offered a limited defense of Pence.

Pence appeared on the Hannity show this week and said Behar recently called him to apologize. He told Sean that he forgave her and asked her to apologize to the millions of Americans she offended. On yesterday’s episode of The View, she finally did it.

Brian Flood reports at FOX News:

ABC News star Joy Behar finally apologizes for anti-Christian remarks: ‘Vice President Pence is right’

ABC News star Joy Behar apologized for mocking Vice President Mike Pence’s Christian faith on Tuesday, ending a month of outcry stemming from remarks she made that have been called “slander” and “anti-Christian bigotry.”

Pence appeared on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” Monday evening, urging Behar to apologize to “tens of millions of Americans who were equally offended” during the conversation – and she obliged.

“I think Vice President Pence is right. I was raised to respect everyone’s religious faith and I fell short of that,” Behar said on Tuesday’s edition of “The View.”

“I sincerely apologize for what I said,” Behar added.

The conservative watchdog group, the Media Research Center, had a lot to do with this outcome. They launched a campaign to put pressure on ABC News, which owns The View.

MRC President Brent Bozell released a statement, via News Busters:

“Our campaign against The View and Joy Behar has concluded. Even though it took a full month, Joy Behar did the right thing today to publicly apologize for her offensive remarks. I want to thank and congratulate the massive number of Americans who supported our effort and stood up to this anti-Christian bigotry with your calls, letters and messages. Over 43,000 phone calls were placed to ABC and their advertisers demanding an apology.

This clearly has taken a toll on ABC and has left a black mark on advertisers Clorox, Gerber, Oreo and HomeAdvisor who were utterly silent in reply to the uproar from their Christian consumers. While our campaign is over, let it be made clear: we will not hesitate to come after any TV personality or media figure who engages in this type of anti-Christian bigotry. Nor will we spare any effort to denounce the sponsors of such hatred. Christians are fed up, and aren’t going to take it anymore.”

Thirty days; 40,000 complaints to network and advertisers; millions of insulted believers; thousands of outraged blog posts; urging by a VP of the USA – aaaaand Joy Behar finally issues a public apology for her on-air, anti-christian bigotry.

“I think Vice President Pence is right. I was raised to respect everyone’s religious faith and I fell short of that,” Behar said on Tuesday’s edition of “The View.”

“I sincerely apologize for what I said,” Behar added.

Ok. Fine. Jesus taught us to forgive, then forgive again, particularly when the one who offends makes an effort to make amends. Apology accepted, Joy.

But what still disturbs are the dark ideas which infest Behar’s head, coupled with a toxic environment that festers on a television stage to allow for such easy ridicule of heartfelt religious conviction of hundreds of millions of believers in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

“However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.” – Matthew 17:22

    As a Christian, I was NOT insulted because I simply consider the source. Jesus said:

    Proverbs 19:11 The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a transgression.

    Proverbs 12:16 Fools show their annoyance at once, but the prudent overlook an insult.

    1 Peter 4:14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.

    It is not necessary to forgive anything these godless morons say or do, especially since their “apologies” are based on damage control rather than sincere “repentance”!

    Joy has an unclean spirit? Well, let’s just hope that, when it’s expelled, it doesn’t drown a bunch of perfectly good bacon in the sea.

H8TRS gonna H8T.

She is an idiot, part of a panel of idiots. Her job is to say asinine idiocies in front of a camera for people who lack self respect.
If I had the choice, I would never hear about her, or about the other idiots she works with, or about any of the stupid imbecilities they say.

Yes, it was offensive.. but she is personality, on a talkish show I never watch. What bothers me is the supposedly serious journalists on many networks who get away blatant misinformation bordering on outright lies. They are supposed to be professional newsmen and women.

That being said, I thought Vice President Pence was the epitome of Christian grace.

Jesus told me… well maybe it was God, or CS Lewis, or Grandma Ruth reaching down to nudge my soul… but Someone up there told me we aren’t about throwing acid in Joy Behar’s face for disrespecting our faith or even for persecuting us.

I hope Joy is okay with that.

Because my Angels are weary from my many sins and can use any help they can get. My NSA Shadow too (waves) Hi Agent Garcia! Hang in there! Only 6 weeks till you get to retire. I’ll do my best to not be Evil.

I believe her apology is completely serious, in that she seriously wishes this would go away.

Looking at Joy…I see a face that can sink a thousand ships.

She was seething with anger as she made her “apology.”

WOW, by the expression on Joy Behar’s face you could really tell that her arm was being twisted pretty damn hard to get her to make that apology. It seems to me that if Joy Behar really “…was raised to respect everyone’s religious faith and I (she) fell short of that,…”, then she shouldn’t have taken over a month of scandal to say, “I sincerely apologize for what I said,” she would have said it the very next day when all the uproar and scandal first started.

    She claims to be a Christian. Shouldn’t she be apologizing for betraying her own faith?

    But then again, I know a bit about typical Christians in the US.

I once read somewhere the claim, that there was no such thing as at truly ugly woman. Well, this “Joy” B-hore,or whatever it calls itself, certainly is an exception, then?

If it were not for her good looks, she would have nothing to offer.

ABC needs to fire her. An apology isn’t enough.

If somebody steps on my toe and says “I’m sorry!” I believe them.

If somebody is in a hurry and steps on my toe when they run by, but tells me tomorrow “I’m sorry for stepping on your toe yesterday” I believe them.

If somebody runs up to me, stomps on my foot several times, and runs away, then says nothing until ten thousand other people call their place of employment in protest of the foot-stomping, and then the same somebody comes out on TV and says “I’m sorry his racist, sexist, misogynist, privileged, Christian foot was stuck out in front of me…

I probably will not believe them.

Neither will anybody with any sense who watches this foot-stomper weasel and whine her way through a non-apology.

You want the real story? Oprah Winfrey is perhaps the most powerful person in the media and at ABC. Oprah is a Christian and is contemplating a run for the Presidency. Be that as it may, Joy Behar’s comments against Christians were also an insult to Oprah. Behar’s apology to all Christians was actually nothing more than penance to Oprah whom she deeply offended. It was one of those hand, biting, feeding you, things, and nothing more. It certainly had nothing to do with her feelings towards Christians across this country where a great many reside in rural areas and who continue to be despised by Behar, but what’s a little hypocrisy when your job is at stake?.

    And you are DELUSIONAL if you actually believe the deceiver oprah! Oprah claims to be a Christian to draw in mindless, foolish Christians. All you have to do is look at the latest movie (by Disney), “A Wrinkle In Time” (from a Christian children’s book), that oprah is in, where they removed all references to God and added leftist political rhetoric.

    On comment sums it up – To add more insult to injury, Oprah ripped out all scripture and Christian references that were in the book and many of the references to historical figures that had a huge impact on humanity. I’m sorely disappointed that good, influential Christian stories are being rewritten by our liberal culture to tell their version of history or fiction without God in the equation.
