Flashback: Anti-Christian Joy Behar Gets Surprise from 30,000 Angry Viewers

Editor’s Note: Our readers responded strongly to this story when it originally ran; we’re re-posting it here in case you missed it.

A host of “The View” and notable anti-Christian Joy Behar made disparaging comments against Christianity in early February, and now her network is seeing just how big of a mistake that was.

“It’s one thing to talk to Jesus, it’s another thing when Jesus talks to you,” Behar said while discussing Vice President Mike Pence’s strong Christian faith. “That’s called mental illness if I’m not correct.”

The comments received a chorus of laughter from the show’s co-hosts as well as those in the crowd.


However, the Media Research Center and thousands of Christians weren’t laughing.

Shortly after Behar made her remarks, the MRC began a campaign calling on ABC to hold the show’s co-hosts accountable for spreading “anti-Christian bigotry.”

The campaign appears to be gaining momentum because, as of Wednesday morning, ABC received over 30,000 calls from angry viewers, Fox News reported.

However, that’s not all. Disgruntled viewers also contacted the show’s advertisers, including Oreo, Home Advisor and Clorox. As noted by the MRC, the number of calls to advertisers has soared to over 6,000.

MRC president Brent Bozell also published an open letter to the network, urging them to “right this wrong.”

“Make no mistake, the slurs against the Vice President’s faith insult millions of Christians and are unacceptable,” he wrote. “If there are no on-air apologies after this deplorable episode, Christians will tune out ABC programming across the board. And we will do our best to encourage it.”

He added: “I am sure the advertisers of ‘The View’ will be just as appalled as I am about the anti-Christian remarks made on the show.”

Bozell ended the letter with one final jab — a thinly-veiled threat, “I hope you are able to take the appropriate action before we begin.”

In a video announcing the campaign, Bozell stated that the MRC’s goal is to “put all these anti-Christian bigots on notice for once and for all.”

As reported by The Western Journal, Pence aired his grievances with Behar and ABC immediately after the remarks surfaced.

“I actually heard that ABC has a program that compared my Christianity to mental illness. And I’d like to laugh about it, but I really can’t,” Pence said in an interview with C-SPAN.

“Tens of millions of Americans today will have ash on their foreheads to mark the beginning of Lent,” he continued, referring to Ash Wednesday. “To have ABC maintain a broadcast forum that compared Christianity to mental illness is just wrong.”

      I do not watch ABC anymore because of the View. If they allow that evil show to continue then the rest of their shows are not worth watching either.

      OMG I can’t believe what a bunch of pussies we have here. Hearing “voices” IS a psychological illness for god’s sake! It’s called “schitzophrenia” – ever heard of it??

        You are a dumbass, the supernatural is all around you. You hear it from your nefesh(heart). Not from the head as a schizophrenic would. When you are in the spirit, your head is shutoff. You speak only from the nefesh (heart) you also don’t just hear it you feel the emotions because the heart is one with Abba. Until you stop, your heart will always rejecting Him. But hey keep it up, your heart will eventually betray you.

        Having a degree in psychology I have to first correct your spelling, it’s “schizophrenia” there is no “t” in it. Now, hearing voices (although this situation doesn’t fall into that category) is an auditory hallucination, which can be associated with schizophrenia. The key words being “can be” because auditory hallucinations can also be connected to other mental illnesses. So, you might want to do a bit more research before you start flapping your gums. Oh, and since you think hearing voices means you have issues, next time you’ re in a bad situation and that voice inside you is telling you the good choice…don’t listen to it.

          Thank you. Your reply…is far more civil, than mine would be. …My opinion of “The View” is absolutely…NOT printable and was formed…long before President Trump beat Hitlery in 2016.

      You’re 100% correct. There was a time the show was going off the air, but ABC rescued them. Now ABC can do the right thing and tell them to stop their hate filled, deplorable remarks, or be dropped.

      Boycott the sponsors. Fight fire with money, Money talks, the View walks. “Follow the money”, because that my friends is what makes the world go around. If the sponsors can’t sell their product because of one anti Christian bbbb witch, or 4 of them they will fold up their funds and find something else to sponsor.

      I agree it should be taken off the air. What surprised me about this article is that The View had 30,000 viewers. I can’t imagine any decent person watching it.

    As a Christian and as someone who suffers from mental illness, Joy’s statement is deeply offensive. To write off Christians who daily have God speak to them (yes, it’s very real) and those who suffer with mental illness with one glib remark is absolutely reprehensible. These are both realities that play huge parts in many people’s lives and those people need to be strong and brave even when it’s hard. These are not the people you want to mess with.

    The View is a disgusting, hate promoting, divisive show. The climate in our country is tense enough without this piece of garbage program spreading and encouraging the vicious, violence the left exhibits to conservative Christians. I would love to see this and any other talk, “comedy”, and news shows turn completely away from communicating political views that continue to promote the division going on in our country. There actually was a wonderful time in my life where the news reporters just reported the news as it happened without inserting their opinions. Talk shows had interesting discussions with guests without a political narrative. Comedy shows were just funny without characters bringing up anything political. I’m glad I lived to see that time, and I hate that young people now will apparently never know it was that way once upon a time.

    Was it part of Joy Behar’s own “mental illness” that she orchestrated a photograph of her grabbing the COCK of Robin William a decade ago at a Comic Relief fundraiser, or is she just another showbiz whore doing whatever it takes to make the headlines and make a buck?

    When the View premiered several years ago, I thought it would be an interesting show. It only took a few episodes to realize that they were promoting hate, bigotry and a far left ideology that they would tolerate no disagreement with. I stopped watching then. It amazes me that this trash is still on the air. But, then, executives at ABC have pretty much made the entire network unfit to watch. In the last year, I have found only one hour a week of ABC programming fit to tune into. Also, Disney, who now owns ABC, has turned to making films unfit for children. Walt Disney would be spinning in his grave if he could see the trash they are producing under his name.

    I haven’t watched that show for years! Can’t stand the bigoted, nasty, anti-everything good, old bags. Whoopty Do and Bejar are the total worst. I still will not watch the show, even if they leave, because ABC has kept them so long and set a horrible example when they fire other people for an opposite stand. Booooooooooooooooo

      Ditto here!! It’s bad enough to have The View anti-everything (except abortion) attitudes splashed all over Facebook. I refuse to watch it!!

    Why is it that Joy-Less & her troop of liberal 21st century manure spreading buffoons are never held accountable for what they say or do? How Pathetic… Joy Behar & Whoopie Goldberg along with other smug women of “The View” suffer from acute “Trump Derangement Syndrome”… they have a long standing history of being vicious, foul, vulgar, venomous & toxic… being part of “The Fake News Industrial Complex” they are out of touch with American values & a sense of right and wrong… These liberals preach “tolerance,” but seem incapable of actually tolerating any viewpoint that doesn’t perfectly mirror their own… STAND STRONG… DRAIN THE SWAMP MR. PRESIDENT…

    I can’t believe anyone is of such a low mentality and brains that they would watch this show ever. These women are the mentally ill. They think people care about what they think; well, we don’t. It’s like listen to a bunch of squealing pigs.

    I returned to America shortly after Barbara Walters left it and saw about 10 minutes of one show. Turned it off for it struck me as brain-dead bitter women spewing drivel. My how they fawned over “The Donald” even though he wasn’t on that show/ I later read something about the show and it led me to tune in shortly after “The Donald” won the nomination. The unjigated vile hatred dribbling from Joyless revolted my. I have never watched ABC since time. Who knows, their stupidity might be catching over the air waves.

    The View is absolute scum – including that whore McCain. They all hate America, hate Jews and Israel, and love Radical Islamic terrorists and Barack Hussein, the most America hating President in history. May they all burn in hell!

    The View is nothing but one big bash fest. And that isn’t accidental, it’s deiberate. For Meghan McCain to assoociate herself with it is nuts. I decided a while back that I had better things to do than watch ABC and the other commie networks. I have begun to be very selective about what I watch on TV. There’s not much worthwhile to watch on these networks. My time is much more valuable than that and a lot of what is on TV mind numbing.
