Jodie Sweetin, the woke star of “Full House,” attacked the sale of an indepenent film project on which she is working to the Great American Family Network, a faith-based television network that rose to prominence for creating Hallmark-like movies that have pro-Christian messages. Its star rose when Hallmark went woke.
Sweetin, however, is no fan of the Christian network. She said that she is “disappointed” her movie has been sold to Great American Family, the network for which Christian actress Candace Cameron Bure is the Chief Creative Officer.
Sweeting announced her opposition to the sale in a statement to Fox News Digital. In the statement, she first noted that actors and actresses often don’t have much of a choice over to whom their projects are sold and said that she was surprised by this sale.
“Sometimes, we, as actors, don’t have control over which network buys the projects we are in nor are we a part of the process in which they get sold. So I was very surprised to learn by reading about it in the press yesterday that the independent film I worked on over a year ago was sold to Great American Family,” she said.
Continuing, she argued that she was against the sale because the Great American Family network isn’t all on board with the “LGBTQ+” lobby, saying, “I am disappointed, but in keeping with my mission of supporting the LGBTQ+ family, any potential or future money made from this sale will be donated to LGBTQ+ organizations.”
That comment probably came out of Candace Cameron Bure telling the Wall Street Journal that she left the Hallmark Channel and hopped on board the Great American Family network because of her faith, saying that it was far more faith-focused than Hallmark.
She said, “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.”
She then added that it, unlike Hallmark, would keep traditional views of marriage central to its core, saying, “I think that Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core.” That stands in contrast to Hallmark, which has gotten on board with what the “LGBTQ+” lobby demands.
Sweetin attacked that remark at the time that Bure made it, saying, “I have always been an outspoken ally for LGBTQ communities, for Black Lives Matter. I’ve always tried to fight for equality and love for everyone. So I was so thrilled when the Respect for Marriage Act passed, because I know that was something that a lot of people were concerned about… I really was advocating for that and it makes me so happy.”
She also argued that those in the public eye need to use their platform to push woke values, saying, “I feel like if you have a voice and you have a platform, it is incumbent on you to be loud and use it. Whether people like it all the time or not, sometimes. I love what I do because I know that not everyone has the time [or] is willing to be able to get up and do this. So I take it as a huge responsibility.”
