Mr Pence told Fox News' Sean Hannity on Monday that "The View" host Joy Behar called him to say sorry for making fun of Christian beliefs. "It's another thing when Jesus talks to you", Behar said.

"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.

"I think Vice President Pence is right". I fell short of that. She made a call to him and apologised, which I thought was absolutely appropriate. And I'm like, Jesus ain't say that ... They both talked about how they were raised Roman Catholic, he said, and mentioned that Pence told Behar that he was confirmed in the church, taking the name "Christopher".

Behar then added that she finds it weird when people hear messages from God.

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. "It's another thing when Jesus talks to you", Ms. Behar said. "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". "I'd like to be light about it, but I really can't - not for my sake, but for the tens of millions of Americans who cherish their faith, I just, I can't be silent".

Brent Bozell, president of the Media Research Center, said "The View" should do more than just offer a public apology.

One of the oldest jokes in comedy was uttered by comedian Joy Behar weeks ago.

"When they do that, this whole matter will be put to rest", Bozell concluded. I happen to take exception to what she said. "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.

McCain was immediately interrupted and told her impression was "not actually true" by The View host Whoopi Goldberg.

In contrast, "Pence didn't back down and that sets a good standard", Showalter opined.
