Updating a story CBN News continues to follow, the press secretary of Vice President Mike Pence has confirmed that Joy Behar of ABC News' "The View" personally apologized to Pence for comments she made against his Christian faith.

Behar said: "It's one thing to talk to Jesus".

The conversation had been spurned by a warning from Omarosa Manigault-Newman on Big Brother, who said of the vice president: "I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things. That's called mental illness". "I did encourage her to use the forum of that program to apologize to tens of millions of Americans who were equally offended".

"You know, I give Joy Behar a lot of credit", Pence told Fox News' Sean Hannity on Monday. "She picked up the phone, she called me, she was very honest, and she apologized".

The comments had Behar saying "it's one thing to talk to Jesus".

In what serves as a model for conservative Americans that taking a principled stand against media bias can drive results, Joy Behar apologized on Tuesday for offending millions of Christians.

She added, "I sincerely apologize for what I said".

Behar said Tuesday she'd been raised to respect all faiths and that she fell short of that last month. "She made a call to him and apologized, which I thought was absolutely appropriate".

Behar's call to Pence was undisclosed until Disney CEO Bob Iger was asked about the controversy during last week's meeting with investors. Meanwhile, Behar, a comedian and commentator, should not be allowed to question the legitimacy of hearing Jesus Christ speak to you?

Pence later said, "To have ABC maintain a broadcast forum that compared Christianity to mental illness is just wrong", and described Behar's comment as "religious intolerance".

On Tuesday morning, Graham echoed that call, saying on Facebook that it was "disappointing that there's still been no action taken by the network and there hasn't been a public apology".

On February 13, Behar mockingly called the Vice President's faith "mental illness" because he listens to God speaking in his heart during personal prayer. She made a call to him and apologized. Bozell's watchdog group is presently running a campaign on behalf of aggrieved Christians, urging that viewers contact "View" advertisers about Behar's "hateful, anti-Christian remarks".
