Over the past few months, Candace Cameron Bure of “Full House” and “Fuller House” fame has found herself being targeted by cancel culture for saying that her new home network Great American Family will focus on content that “keeps traditional marriage at the core.” She’s now responding to the backlash that she’s faced by admitting that “cancel culture’s real.”

‘It’s Important That We Don’t Back Down’

“It’s difficult. And it’s hard, but listen, I just want to encourage you that you are not the only one and there are lots of us, and we are always stronger together,” Cameron Bure said while appearing on the “Unapologetic with Julia Jeffress Sadler” podcast.

“It’s hard, no matter what. Especially when you are a compassionate person and you have a heart for people,” she continued. “But it’s important that we speak truth in love, ’cause, listen, nobody’s gonna change, nobody’s gonna listen to you when it comes out angry, when it comes out in a harsh way, but it’s important that we don’t back down.”

Cameron Bure went on to talk about the importance of her strong Christian faith and knowing where to draw “the line in the sand.”

“If you know what your boundaries are, that’s the most important,” she explained. “Because if you don’t make them for yourself, the entertainment industry will make them for you. And that’s what you don’t want.”

‘There Are Lots Of Christians’ In Hollywood 

Cameron Bure also addressed the fact that she’s one of the only openly conservative Christian actors in Hollywood today. 

“There are lots of Christians in the entertainment industry,” she said. “Some of them you have to find. Some of them are not as outspoken as others, because of the stigmas that might be around being a Christian in entertainment. But there are lots of us.” 

After finding fame as a child star on “Full House,” Cameron Bure left Hollywood to raise her three children, who are all now adults. 

“When I came back into the industry, I clearly knew my purpose in the industry, and just saw that as the battlefield,” she said. “That was where I could go and make a difference in the art of my work that I get to do and look at it through a new lens, and that was to share the Lord with people.”

Cameron Bure and her husband Valeri Bure, a former professional hockey player who she’s been married to since 1996, are parents to: Natasha, 24; Lev, 22; and Maksim, 21.

“I am so encouraged by my own children,” she concluded. “I’m so proud of them for really sticking to truth and knowing the gospel and being willing to share that, because I know it takes bravery, especially in the time we’re living today.”

Cameron Bure’s ‘Traditional Marriage’ Controversy

Cameron Bure was slammed by leftists back in November when she said that “Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core.” Despite the backlash she received, Cameron Bure refused to back down.

“All of you who know me, know beyond question that I have great love and affection for all people,” she said. “It absolutely breaks my heart that anyone would ever think I intentionally would want to offend and hurt anyone.”

“It saddens me that the media is often seeking to divide us, even around a subject as comforting and merry as Christmas movies. But, given the toxic climate in our culture right now, I shouldn’t be surprised,” she continued. 

God bless Cameron Bure for being one of the only celebrities who is not afraid to be open about her conservative Christian views. If only we had more stars in Hollywood like her!
