The unsuppressed hatred on the Left has gone largely uncriticized. It is only when the utterly deplorable nature of their ad hominin attacks are incapable of escaping a general sense of decency that the Left backs off.
In February, ‘The View’ co-host Joy Behar once again wandered over the line of public decency by denigrating the Christian faith of Vice President Mike Pence, equating the faith of billions with that of mental illness.

After Pence made it known that he communicates through prayer with Jesus Christ and God and that he has received insight from them, Behar could not resist slamming the Trump VP any way she could.
“Like I said before, it’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you,” Behar said. “That’s called mental illness, if I’m not correct. Hearing voices.”
The low IQ hosts of the ABC daytime show shared some laughs over the comment, but Behar was not done.
Referencing Pence’s past comments that, out of respect for his wife, he would never dine alone with another woman, Behar quipped “My question is can he talk to Mary Magdalene without his wife in the room?”
When asked about the former-comedian’s remarks, Pence told an interviewer “To have ABC maintain a broadcast forum that compared Christianity to mental illness is just wrong. And it’s an insult not to me, but to the vast majority of the American people who, like me, cherish their faith.”
Pence’s outrage over Behar’s slurs was matched by a what was a growing chorus of angered viewers and citizens. The pressure caused ABC management to order Behar and the other hosts to apologize. At first the women refused, but eventually they gave in.
On March 13, the show quickly addressed the issue, with Behar issuing the following apology: “I think Vice President Pence is right. I was raised to respect everyone’s religious faith. I fell short of that. I sincerely apologize for what I said.”

Her apology came after she had a private phone conversation with Pence in which she reportedly offered her regrets on what she said.
