Joy Behar, talk show host on “The View,” said that she didn't think that the Bible mentions homosexuality.

Behar made the remarks in response to former Vice President Mike Pence discussing his views on biblical marriage.

What are the details?

Behar and her co-hosts discussed Pence's speech at the University of Virginia, in which he discussed the dangers of cancel culture.

The panel cued footage of Pence's speech in which he responded to a question about what he would do if he found out that one of his own children were gay.

"I'd look him in the eye and tell him 'I love you,'" the former vice president said. "I believe marriage was ordained by God and instituted in the law. But we live in a pluralistic society, and the way we go forward and the way we come together as a country united, I believe, is when we respect your right to believe, and my right to believe, what we believe."

Former Pence aide and guest co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin said that she believed Pence's remarks proved that he was evolving in some of his personal beliefs.

Fellow guest co-host Julia Haart added that her daughter — who is in a partnership with another woman — would never have been able to live her life in the way she saw fit if she'd stayed in the her former religion as a Haredi Jew.

“To me, having the right to choose who you want to be, and not made to feel shame, is what democracy is,” Haart said. “Who decided that a traditional marriage is a man and a woman? Who came up with this plan? Everything that exists in nature — right? People say it’s unnatural. Isn’t everything that exists in nature natural?”

Behar interrupted, “Is homosexuality even mentioned in the Bible? I don’t think it is.”

Several others around the table interjected and corrected her, saying, "It is."

Behar joked, "That's how much I know about the Bible."
