Candace Cameron Bure Responds to Attackers: ‘I Love You Anyway’

By Movieguide® Staff

After Candace Cameron Bure celebrated that she will be involved with faith-based holiday movies, a slew of fellow celebrities online attacked the Christian actress.

Despite their vitriolic words, Bure chose to respond in kindness.

In a lengthy statement, Bure addressed both her original comments and the backlash.

“All of you who know me, know beyond question that I have great love and affection for all people. 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 ys, even around a subject as comforting and merry as Christmas movies. But given the toxic climate in our culture right now, I shouldn’t be surprised. We need Christmas more than ever,” the actress posted to Instagram.

“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. My heart years 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,” the former Movieguide® Awards host continued.

“To members of the media responsible for using this opportunity to fan the flames of conflict and hate, I have a simple message: I love you. To those who have tried to assassinate my character: I love you. 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.”

Bure continued her post, expressing her long desire to be part of a network that championed faith-based programming. After years at Hallmark, Bure opted to join former Hallmark President Bill Abbott at his new network, Great American Family. The network has promised to create wholesome movies that promote biblical values.

Ultimately, Bure said her “Christmas wish,” is that “you’ll join me in sharing God’s hope for all the world this Christmas season.”

Pray for Bure as she continues to withstand the attacks from the enemy.
