"I think Vice President Pence is right".

Behar's manager, Bill Stankey, confirmed to The Washington Post that Behar recently apologized to Pence during a phone conversation.

Hannity quipped back, "So does mine, but I'm not as good at it as you". "And I did so".

"I give Joy Behar a lot of credit".

"I think I'm a very typical American - whatever your faith traditions, people understand that", he said.

"Look, but I said to Joy, of course, I forgive you".

That prompted the women of "The View" on February 13 to critique Pence's faith. "But I did encourage her and 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".

The 75-year-old comedian made the controversial remark last month while discussing comments made by Omarosa on "Celebrity Big Brother".

"It's one thing to talk to Jesus. I was raised to respect everyone's religious faith and I fell short of that", Behar said on Tuesday's edition of "The View". "That's called mental illness, if I'm not correct". Pence said was happy that Behar had apologized to him personally, but wanted her to apologize to all Christians.

Congress MLAs hit back at TRS for alleging they were drunk
He was admitted to Sarojini Devi Eye Hospital for treatment. "The government is enacting a drama", Uttam said. Minister for legislative affairs, T Harish Rao strongly condemned the "unruly behaviour" of Congress members.

The vice president is not the only one wanting Behar to make a public apology.

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.

Iger responded by saying that Behar had already apologized to Pence, which he believed was "absolutely appropriate".

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. Until they do, we will not let up our campaign to let the world - including their advertisers - know of their anti-Christian bigotry", he added.

Bozell tweeted Sunday, "Take action!"

"Hollywood culture and people like Joy Behar have gotten away with putting Christian beliefs down for decades", Showalter concluded. Then she compared prayer to mental illness.

"He's extreme", Manigault Newman said to her fellow contestants about Pence, who has ties to the evangelical community.
