Earlier this week, we reported that the Hollywood star Candace Cameron Bure of “Full House” and “Fuller House” fame was receiving backlash after saying that her new network Great American Family will be focusing on stories that are about “traditional marriage.”
Cameron Bure, who signed on as the chief creative officer for GAF network earlier this year, is now firing back at her haters, and she’s refusing to back down.
Cameron Bure, 46, was accused of being a “bigot” after she said earlier this week that the GAF network will “keep traditional marriage at the core” of its storytelling. The always classy took the high road by issuing a statement in which she stood by her views while also refusing to go back on the beliefs that she holds dear.
I Am A Devoted Christian’
“All of you who know me, know beyond question that I have great love and affection for all people,” Cameron Bure 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,” the actress continued. “But, given the toxic climate in our culture right now, I shouldn’t be surprised. We need Christmas more than ever.”
Not stopping there, Cameron Bure proceeded to double down on the strong Christian beliefs that she’s been known for for decades.
“I am a devoted Christian. Which means that I believe that every human being bears the image of God. Because of that, I am called to love all people, and I do. If you know me, you know that I am a person who loves fiercely and indiscriminately,” she explained. “My heart yearns to build bridges and bring people one step closer to God, to love others well, and to simply be a reflection of God’s huge love for all of us.”
Cameron Bure Directly Addresses Her Haters Cameron Bure then directly addressed the people both in the media and out of it who have been relentlessly attacking her in recent days.
“To the members of the media responsible for using this opportunity to fan flames of conflict and hate, I have a simple message: I love you anyway. To those who hate what I value and who are attacking me online: I love you. To those who have tried to assassinate my character: I love you,” she said. “To everyone reading this, of any race, creed, sexuality, or political party, including those who have tried to bully me with name-calling, I love you.”
