‘It’s Hard No Matter What’: Candace Cameron Bure Says Cancel Culture Can’t Force Her To Back Down

Great American Family actress Candace Cameron Bure made it clear that she’s not going to let cancel culture influence her choices, saying that while she realized facing backlash for her personal views could be “difficult,” it was nothing compared to what Christians faced in other countries.

Bure joined Wednesday’s episode of the “Unapologetic with Julia Jeffress Sadler” podcast, and she addressed the fact that critics routinely attack her for voicing her conservative Christian views — particularly in the film business.

“Cancel culture is real, and it’s difficult, and it’s hard,” she said, but she immediately pivoted to point out the fact that people outside the United States faced a much more difficult situation if they wanted to preach the Gospel.

“I know there’s all the places in the world, all different countries, where people get severely persecuted for their faith. I feel like we’ve had this cushion here in North America where someone yells at us or someone says a mean, negative thing and our feelings get so hurt over it,” she said, adding, “And that isn’t nearly the persecution that other people go through from being a Christian in other countries.”

Bure went on to say that she did not intend to allow critics to change her, arguing that it was even more important for Christians to stand up and stand firm in their beliefs when they were faced with backlash.

“It’s hard, no matter what. Especially when you are a compassionate person and you have a heart for people. 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,” she explained.

After Bure’s abrupt exit from the Hallmark Channel — which she attributed to a change in leadership and a shift away from faith-based stories that focused on traditional values and marriages — she faced a wave of backlash accusing her of bigotry and of selling out.

Bure responded by saying that she loved everyone — even those who hated everything she stood for – and confirming that she would stand in her faith despite their attacks.
