Christian actress Candace Cameron Bure, who became famous in the 1990s for her role on television staple “Full House” and later resurfaced for its follow-up run “Fuller House,” set the internet on fire this past Christmas while expressly leaving the woke Hallmark channel and setting her sights on productions with intently Christian themes.
Now, Cameron Bure is back reflecting on her career, faith journey, and the firestorm that erupted over her alleged intolerance toward the LGBT community.
Speaking on her Spotify-hosted podcast “The Candance Cameron Bure Podcast,” she discussed with a guest how she balances her life and how important it is to center herself around her Christian faith.
“Being a Christian was just a compartment of my life,” the “Under Christmas Wraps” actress said. “And during that season of motherhood, which I focused on my relationship with God, I then actually started walking the walk.”
She then discussed how she was thankful to have been taken out of acting for over a decade, a time she says allowed her to build a real relationship with God.
“And I think about the ten years that I thought I was going to continue working, and yet God was like ‘nope, I’m going to take you out for ten years because I’m going to build your character. I’m going to build your worldview,’” she commented. “Which has become a biblical worldview.”
Bure said her newfound relationship with God gave her a new perspective on her professional purpose, and said, as if God were speaking to her, “‘If I allow you, if I have you go back into the business, you’re going to come in with new eyes.’”
“‘It’s not just going to be about being on another television show or being an actress,’” she added of His message. “‘It’s not about winning an award. It’s not about getting the job. You’re gonna be a disciple of me for me in whatever job you have in that industry.’”
“Okay, God I’m so glad you took me out,” Bure said. “It was really hard when he did. And I’m grateful that I was able to come back. But I’m a different person than I was in my early 20s and I really do have a different perspective on why I am in the industry. And what I’m trying to share with people. And what my goals are.”
And so it was that Bure came back and took a fierce stand against the woke march in the film and television industry.
Last November, The American Tribune reported on Bure’s departure from the Hallmark Channel and new venture with Great American Family.
“My heart wants to tell stories that have more meaning and purpose and depth behind them. I knew that the people behind Great American Family were Christians that love the Lord and wanted to promote faith programming and good family entertainment,” Bure said at the time.
The American Tribune continued, saying:
Candace Cameron Bure is the stunning actress known for her performances in Hallmark movies, a favorite of moms across the country during the Christmas season.
But, while she’s well-known for her Hallmark movie performances, Candace won’t be in those movies any longer. Rather, she’s leaving “woke” Hallmark for a Christian channel because of the non-Christian message that Hallmark is pushing with its new movies about gays.
Paul Rudnick, a leftist of just the sort that would love to see the formerly wholesome Hallmark channel ruined by leftist messaging, snidely tweeted about her departure, saying:
“Candace Cameron Bure has left the Hallmark Channel because it depicts LGBTQ romances which Candace says aren’t “Christian.” Her next movies, on an evangelical channel, will include Eva&Adolf – Christmas In Berlin, A Caucasians-Only Klan Christmas, and A Militia Called Love.”
