Today on The View, comedian Joy Behar issued a public apology to Christians for suggesting that hearing from God was a sign of mental illness.
As we reported yesterday, she recently called the vice president to personally apologize for the comments she made in reference to him saying that he strives to hear the voice of God. Pence accepted her apology.
She said, “I think Vice Pres. Pence is right. I was raised to respect everyone’s religious faith, and I fell short of that. I sincerely apologize for what I said.”

According to reports, ABC received more than 30,000 angry phone calls in response to her comments, and it even came up on a recent investors call. A shareholder asked Disney CEO, Bob Iger, “What do you say to the tens of millions of Christians, and President Trump supporters, that your networks have so blatantly offended and ascribed hateful labels?”
On the show, she said she herself is a Christian, and the comment was meant as a joke.
