Candace Cameron Bure, actress best-known for her role as DJ Tanner on “Full House” and “Fuller House,” has made a name for herself as a strong conservative Christian in the media industry. Unlike the majority of Hollywood pushing the liberal agenda, Bure has held her ground in standing up for her faith and conservative views.
Differences in politics have led to a major divide in our country recently, especially since President Donald Trump became number 45—the mainstream media tends to sway towards the Left, commentators from the Right jump in to try to even the media out, but America still cannot reach common ground and, of course, it’s unlikely that we ever will.
Aside from pro-Trump vs. anti-Trump beliefs, other rising social issues have caused an even greater wedge between Democrats and Republicans—the NFL’s National Anthem protests, Boy Scouts allowing girls to be a part of their organization, Christian businesses refusing to cater to same-sex marriages to honor their beliefs, transgender rights—the list goes on and on.
More often than not, people most likely stand on one side or the other of a controversial social issue—you agree football players should be able to protest or you believe they are disrespecting the flag, you think children should be able to choose their gender based on how they feel or you believe that God makes no mistakes and parents are influencing their decision, etc.
These major political differences may have been straining some of your relationships or even causing you to lose certain ones. People are stressed, worried, and merely exhausted from seeing the negativity going on in the world.
One well-known name who seems to feel this way is Candace Cameron Bure. On Thursday, the actress took to Twitter to share her decision to focus on the positive. She clarified that this does not mean she’s ignoring significant issues, but instead choosing to “tune out the voices that don’t contribute to constructive change.”
One fan responded, relating Candace’s thoughts to Bible verse Philippians 4:8. The verse states, “Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
Candace's bold statement comes shortly after she shared a brief comment regarding the Boy Scouts controversy. She retweeted the announcement with a sad emoji face, clearly informing that she is against the change.
