Vice President Mike Pence confirmed Monday that Joy Behar had apologized to him for calling Christianity a form of mental illness on "The View", but suggested she needed to make amends with more people than just himself.
Behar said: "It's one thing to talk to Jesus". Danhof asked. "Specifically, do you think, like Mrs. Hostin and Mrs. Behar, that the Christian faith is akin to a unsafe mental illness?"
On "The View" on Tuesday, Behar said, "I think Vice President Pence is right".
On Tuesday's edition of "The View", Behar publicly apologized, noting that the vice-president had encouraged her to do so. "It demonstrates how out of touch some in the mainstream media are with the faith and values of the American people". "Specifically, do you think, like Mrs. Hostin and Mrs. Behar, that the Christian faith is akin to a unsafe mental illness?"
"It is a good first step that Joy Behar privately apologized to Vice President Pence, but it is not almost enough", Bozell said in a statement released by MRC.
Pence took offence to Behar's comments but has since forgiven the morning talk show host after she called him to personally apologize.

He said: "Investment is coming back, and so this is very good news for good new for jobs and growth across the economies". Growth is steady or improving in most G20 countries and the expansion is continuing.
"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", he said.
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.
"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. He added, "It's just simply wrong for ABC to have a television program that expresses that kind of religious intolerance".
"When they do that, this whole matter will be put to rest", Bozell concluded.

In contrast, "Pence didn't back down and that sets a good standard", Showalter opined. He added that he was glad she apologized and that he "takes exception" to the comments.
