WHEN CALLS THE HEART Star Defends Candace Cameron Bure: ‘Candace Truly Loves People’

By Movieguide® Contributor

WHEN CALLS THE HEART star Paul Greene defended Candace Cameron Bure amid her recent controversy. 

Bure was slammed after saying her move from Hallmark to Great American Family was out of a desire to make faith-based content that “will keep traditional marriage at the core.” 

The actress later made a statement about the backlash, writing, “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.”

Greene recently called out the media for attempting to “cancel” Bure, calling her “the most amazing person.”

“I don’t disagree with everything she does,” Greene explained. “I just wish the media was fair enough to put in her whole statement. That’s what people need to know, that Candace truly loves people. The news media drives me nuts, because they leave out important parts. They do it all the time for clickbait. That is what is happening to Candace. That’s from my perspective.”

Bure’s daughter Natasha also defended her mother. Movieguide® previously reported

Natasha Bure recently celebrated her birthday and took some time to shout out her mom, Candace Cameron Bure. 

“My favorite people in the entire world,” she captioned a photo of herself, her parents, and her brothers standing around a birthday cake. “The Lord blessed me with the best parents I could’ve ever asked for…Raising us up in the word of God and bringing glory to HIS name. I don’t know where I’d be without both of them.” 

She then singled her mother out, writing, “I love you @candacecbure for continuously choosing Christ before all.”

Her post continued: 

The media is an absolutely VILE space for negativity and I applaud you every time for how you handle yourself with the upmost grace. As they continuously twist the narrative to beat down on the Kingdom, you stand firm in faith and never let others dim your light for Him. No matter how out of context or warped the words may get, the enemy will not prevail. Society has gotten completely out of hand with believing every strategically worded headline broadcasted by the media…followed by cancel culture which is nothing but ugly. It is so incredibly sad to watch. I am lucky to get to view you from a lense closer than most, and see how you are truly the real deal. The Lord shines through you time and time again. The battle is HIS.
