Bure Makes Pure Class Response to Those "Fanning the Flames of Conflict" in Light of Her Departure from Hallmark

Barraged by hateful comments, Candace Cameron Bure crafts a response communicating love for those who hate.

The backlash is coming in response to an honest answer Bure provided in an interview for The Wall Street Journal about switching her Christmas movie work from the Hallmark Channel to The Great American Family Network.

This move is hardly news and has been covered extensively since she announced the move earlier this year. Bure is not the only actor, nor is she the only staff person to make the move when Hallmark, among other controversies, made the decision to feature same-sex couples in their films.

When asked about editorial choices for films at her new network, Bure made this response, “Asked if she expects her new channel to feature same-sex couples as leads in holiday movies, Mrs. Bure said no. ‘I think that Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core,’ she said.”

Since the article was released, she’s become the object of extensive name-calling over social media and the lead topic on many talk shows that thrive on controversy.

Bure’s stance on moving to her new network has consistently been that she doesn’t hate anyone but she wants to make movies that reflect stories and families that reflect her faith and the faith of many of her followers.

In response to the attacks against her, Bure said on her Instagram post, among other things, “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.”

She also states, “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. 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.”

“It saddens me that the media is often seeking to divide us, even around a subject as comforting and merry as Christmas movies,” Bure said.

Bure goes on to say that what wasn’t included in the interview were comments she made that people of every ethnicity and skin color will continue to contribute to the success of her new network both in front of and behind the camera.

She closed by praising the creativity and love of the God we celebrate at Christmas. She asked others to join her, in this Christmas season, in “sharing God’s hope for all the world.”
