Candace Cameron Bure The View Christian Hallmark movies ABC talk show

ABC talk show “The View” may be trying to fill its fifth seat, but former cohost Candace Cameron Bure took a break from filming Hallmark movies to explain why she won’t be joining the liberal panel of talking heads anytime soon and for good reason.

The former “Full House” child star is one of the few conservative women to grace the liberal panel. Former Fox host Abby Huntsman is the latest conservative to bail out.

Not surprisingly, the women who don’t lean left last for relatively short stints on “The View.”

Why Candace Cameron Bure Won’t Go Back To ‘The View’

Candace Cameron Bure cohosted “The View” for almost a year before leaving in 2016. Now, the 44-year-old “Fuller House” actress says she has no interest in doing so again.

“I just don’t publicly want to talk about politics,” Bure explained to Fox News. “Not because I don’t believe that my viewpoints and opinions are important but I would much rather share Jesus with people. That’s really my passion.”

“I don’t want to get into the political debate because it just is about division and separation,” Bure added. “And I want to learn. I want to be [part of] a conversation about how to build a bridge.”

Bure is an out and open conservative Christian woman, which are two things both the media and liberals love to hate.

That’s why it really comes as no surprise that she has no interest in playing the role of the proverbial punching bag for liberals like Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar every day on “The View.”

The Show Must Go On

Of course, Candace Cameron Bure is doing perfectly well for herself since leaving “The View.”

During the pandemic, the mother of three managed to stay busy filming two new Hallmark movies in Canada.

While the COVID-19 pandemic has been awful, the actress sees a silver lining in the way people are taking life at a slower pace. 

“The one good thing about [working with new safety guidelines] is that everyone has to move [a]t a little bit slower of a pace because everyone can’t do their job at the same time. I actually think that’s a plus,” she said. “It allows people to do their specific job with a little extra room and a few extra minutes. I think it’s a really good positive thing because usually everyone is in such a rush to get it done so fast, so [quickly] and so now everyone’s taking a breath.”

Candace Cameron Bure Has Been A Christian For Decades

Candace Cameron’s older brother and fellow 80’s child star Kirk Cameron is a prominent Christian. Bure herself has been a Christian since she was 12, when her parents first took her to church.

Bure still remembers that day vividly, as she recalls feeling “warm” and a sense of happiness that was shared with her mother and siblings.

“When I was twelve years old, my parents told us we were going to church; a friend had invited us. It was strange to me, and I giggled at the thought of God,” she wrote in 2017. “But as we continued to go every Sunday, my heart felt warm, and I saw how happy my mom, brother and sister were. I decided that I wanted to feel the same way.”

“It was Jesus Christ that was producing this change in them, so one Sunday morning, I asked Jesus into my heart as my personal Lord and Savior,” Bure added. “I was baptized along with some of my family at a later service. I was extremely excited about what I thought was my new Christian life.”

Without a doubt, Candace Cameron Bure is an inspiring Christian woman, and a true class act. In the end, I think we can all agree that “The View” doesn’t deserve her!
