As previously reported on TruthRevolt, Joy Behar, The Wicked Witch of The View, recently declared that Vice President Mike Pence's Christian faith was some sort of mental illness because he stated, as Christians often do, that he talked with God. Pence didn't take this lying down; he defended, not himself, but the many millions of Christians in America whom Behar smeared with her clueless interpretation of prayer. He told ABC News that Behar "is just wrong" -- which is putting it way too politely.
Now Fox News reports that ABC, network of The View, has received over 30,000 calls since the Media Research Center (MRC) began a campaign to hold the show's gabby co-hosts accountable for their “anti-Christian bigotry” -- but the network is keeping mum about the controversy.
Back on the Feb. 13 episode, Behar's co-host Sunny Hostin worried that “I don’t know that I want my vice president, um — speaking in tongues and having Jesus speak to him.” Behar added that hearing from Jesus is actually called “mental illness.”
The MRC, which describes itself as “America’s leading media watchdog in documenting, exposing and neutralizing liberal media bias,” said the comments “took the liberal media’s pronounced bias against Christianity to the next level.”
MRC President Brent Bozell published an open letter to ABC News calling for an apology and posted contact information for 14 of the ABC News program’s advertisers, as well as that of the president of ABC.
“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 wrote.
As of Wednesday morning, ABC had received 30,588 calls and the show's advertisers, including Clorox, Gerber, Oreo and Home Advisor, have received no fewer than 6,000 calls, according to the MRC. Nonetheless, MRC apparently hasn't received any word from ABC News, its parent company Disney, or any of the advertisers. Apparently they're hoping the controversy will simply go away.
