"I'm a great admirer of Mike Pence and his family", she said.

First of all, Joy Behar apologized to Vice President Pence directly.

"You and I know that criticism comes with public life", Pence added. "And I did so".

Fox News reports that Pence accepted Behar's phone-in apology. "I sincerely apologize for what I said". "She called me. She was very honest, and she apologized and one of the things my faith teaches me is grace; forgive as you've been forgiven", Pence told Hannity... "I said to Joy, 'Of course, I forgive you". "I'm still encouraging her, to use the forum of that program or some other public forum, to apologize to tens of millions of Americans who were equally offended". They were made during a discussion of Pence on the daytime talk show last month.

"It's one thing to talk to Jesus".

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.

Prior to Behar's personal call to Pence, the vice president issued a statement during the C-Span that took place a day after the tirade was aired about his opinion, saying that comparing Christianity to mental illness is simply wrong.

Pence reportedly told Behar she should apologize to Christians during a private phone call, but the vice president doubled down on Fox News and apparently "The View" co-host took notice.

Last week, Disney CEO Bob Iger was asked about the spat between View co-host Joy Behar and VP Mike Pence during a shareholders meeting.

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

"When they do that, this whole matter will be put to rest", Bozell concluded. "Until they do, we will not let up our campaign to let the world - including their advertisers - know of their anti-Christian bigotry", he said.

"Hollywood culture and people like Joy Behar have gotten away with putting Christian beliefs down for decades", Showalter concluded.

On Tuesday's edition of "The View", Behar publicly apologized, noting that the vice-president had encouraged her to do so.

"Conservative actor James Woods tweeted Friday, "#JoyBehar thinks we are mentally ill. The network has not yet responded to our inquiries.
