The cohosts over at ABC’s ‘The View’ tried to turn the page on Joy Behar’s viciously anti-Christian comments Thursday, just one day after Vice President Pence called the show “intolerant” for implying he was “mentally ill” over his religious beliefs.
“Do you think Christians are mentally ill?” asked co-host Whoopi Goldberg.
“That would make me mentally ill since I’m a Christian myself. That would make my mother mentally ill, my father, my aunt, my daughter. Of Course not. I don’t mean to offend people but apparently, I keep doing it,” deflected Behar. “It was a joke. Comedians are in danger these days.”
“This is a show that has had great relationships with all kinds of leaders of different religions,” added Whoopi. “We sit with each other, we don’t always agree, and we listen. We do make jokes, it is what happens on this show. You don’t have to agree with what we’re doing, but you have to understand that it does happen.”
