Candace Cameron Bure Candidly Confronts 'Cancel Culture'

Actress and outspoken Christian Candace Cameron Bure recently shared in an episode of her “Candace Cameron Bure Podcast” that she disagrees with “cancel culture.”

In the Dec. 13 episode with co-host Bianca Juarez Olthoff, Bure said she has faced pushback in the entertainment industry for being a Christian.

"There have been some recent challenges in my life that I have really not publicly discussed yet. If you read the news in certain types of weekly magazines or even Instagram, you'll have seen my face pop up in multiple articles from last year and this year. And a lot of them are really negative," the 47-year-old mother of three said.

"I've never taken those types of punches before. I've taken punches before in my industry, but it was at a level I hadn't experienced yet, and it's been very challenging. It's been an ongoing challenge. I think because I believe strongly in what I believe and lead with my faith, and I'm not afraid or shy or afraid of it, I think that most people who don't know me well and personally think that my skin is a lot thicker than it is. And it's not. It's gotten thicker over the years, but I'm still developing that."

Bure seemed to be referring to a 2022 interview where she said the TV channel Great American Family would prioritize traditional marriage over LGBT storylines in its content.

"You have to be ready for some of those fiery darts to be thrown at you in a bigger public platform," she said. 

She was criticized for the statement, but she said her brother Kirk Cameron encouraged her to hold fast to her faith and welcomed her to what he calls the “James 1 Club.”

"That James 1 Club has been really important for me because I faced some trials I haven't faced before. I know they are still going to come. They are still there. They are waiting for me." 

"I could have bailed and just said, 'You know what? I'm totally done with this,' or 'I don't want to be a public figure anymore,'" Bure added.
