"And I did so".

"I give Joy Behar a lot of credit", he went on. "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".

"I sincerely apologize for what I said", Behar added. "That's part of my faith experience'".

This came in response to a Monday evening episode of the Fox News show "Hannity", in which Pence said he accepted her apology but advised that she publicly apologized to the millions of Americans whose beliefs she offended. Pence revealed he had talked to Behar on the phone, but he believed that she needed to make a public apology. "It's another thing when Jesus talks to you", added Behar. It's another thing when Jesus talks to you.

That's what I would call a proper apology.

Co-host Sunny Hostin said, "I'm Catholic; I'm a faithful person, but I don't know that I want my vice president speaking in tongues and having Jesus speak to him".

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 controversy took another turn last Thursday when Disney CEO Bob Iger, in an address to a shareholder meeting in Houston, said that Behar had apologized "for things she has said about Christians and the Trump administration", according to multiple media reports. "Behar and ABC need to publicly apologize for the bigoted slurs on "The View".

"When they do that, this whole matter will be put to rest", Bozell concluded.

The show also tweeted her public apology.

What we see in entertainment and media may be symptomatic of growing religious intolerance toward Christians.

Bozell tweeted Sunday, "Take action! Call Clorox, their advertiser, at 1-888-317-2837 and ask them to weigh in". "I'm like, 'Jesus isn't saying that.' It's scary", she said as a houseguest on "Celebrity Big Brother".

A March 8 report in the Washington Post noted that Behar's manager, Bill Stankey, told the Post that Behar "recently" apologized to Pence during a phone conversation. "Christians can be demeaned with impunity". Then she compared prayer to mental illness. The network has not yet responded to our inquiries.
