Candace Cameron Bure responds after being attacked for defending traditional marriage.
A few weeks ago, Candace Cameron Bure was in hot water after defending “traditional marriage.” She is responding to her haters. Earlier this week, we reported that Hollywood star Candace Cameron Bure, of “Full House” and “Fuller House,” received backlash after saying that her new network Great American Family would focus on stories about “traditional marriage.”
This week, Cameron Bure, who took over as chief creative officer of the GAF network earlier this year, responded to her haters, and she refused to back down.
Cameron Bure, 46, has been accused of being a “fantasy” after she said earlier this week that the GAF network would “keep traditional marriage at the heart” of its storyline. Ever classy, she hit the ground running by issuing a statement standing by her views while refusing to back down from the beliefs she holds dear.
“I am a devout Christian”
“All of you who know me know without a doubt that I have great love and affection for all people,” Cameron Bure said. “It absolutely breaks my heart that anyone would think that I would intentionally want to offend and hurt someone.
“It saddens me that the media often tries to divide us, even over such a comforting and hilarious topic as Christmas movies,” the actress continued. “But given the toxic climate in our culture right now, I shouldn’t be surprised.” We need Christmas more than ever.”
Not stopping there, Cameron Bure continued to double down on the strong Christian beliefs she has been known for for decades.
“I am a devoted Christian.” Which means I believe that every human being bears the image of God. That is why I am called to love all people and I do. If you know me, you know that I am a person who loves fiercely and without distinction,” she explained. “My heart wants to build bridges and bring people one step closer to God, to love others well and to be a reflection of God’s great love for all of us.”
Cameron Bure addresses the haters directly
Cameron Bure then directly addressed the people both in and out of the media who have mercilessly attacked her in recent days.
“To the members of the media who are responsible for using this opportunity to incite conflict and hatred, I have a simple message: I still love you.” To those who hate what I value and attack me online: I love you. To those who tried to kill my character: I love you,” she said. “To everyone reading this, of any race, creed, sexuality or political party, including those who tried to bully me, I love you.
Cameron Bure went on to say that while she has “long wanted to find a home for faith-based programming,” she also wants it to be known that “people of all ethnicities and identities have and will continue to contribute to the network in a big way and ahead and behind the camera.”
“I was never interested in proselytizing through my story, but in celebrating the greatness of God in our lives through the stories I tell,” she added.
Cameron Bure ends with a divine message
Cameron Bure ended her statement with a powerful message about God.
“The God we serve is an incredibly creative and loving God,” she said. “He didn’t just capture a piece of my heart, He captured my whole heart.” It will be reflected in everything I do and say; in my family, my work, and my interactions with people from all walks of life, God’s love and God’s compassion are front and center.”
“All of this comes from the LOVE that God Himself poured out on humanity when He gave the gift of joy and forgiveness on that first Christmas morning 2,000 years ago,” Cameron Bure concluded. “That’s why I love Christmas stories and share real joy and real peace with millions of people around the world.” And in the sole motivation of pure love, I hope you will join me in sharing God’s hope with the whole world this Christmas season. Call it my Christmas wish.”
Cameron Bure has long been known as one of the only conservative Christian actresses in Hollywood, so the backlash from the left is something she’s used to dealing with. However, the left-wing hate she’s been getting after her “traditional marriage” comment has been especially strong, so she could definitely use our prayers right now.
We applaud Cameron Bure for always taking the right path, even when it’s hard to do so. We love you, Candace!
