Candace Cameron Bure dismissed attempts last year to “cancel” her over her comments about traditional marriage and said she sees it as a test of her faith, as she quoted a Bible verse which deals with seeing test of trials as a blessing.

During the 47-year-old actress’ latest episode on the “Candace Cameron Bure Podcast,” the “Full House” star talked about the backlash she faced in 2022 after she voiced her Christian and conservative views. (7:07)

“When I had a lot of these ‘bullets’ kind of hit me in the last year or so, they’ve been a really big challenge to me personally, to my heart, to my character, to my relationships, to my jobs,  Bure said. “I remember being so upset over it, because it’s like how do you recover?”

“I’ll just say it, Cancel Culture is very real,” she added. “And they were trying to cancel me.”

Bure said her brother, actor Kirk Cameron, called her up at the time and welcomed her into the James 1 club. It was then that Bure looked up the verse and found a message about overcoming struggles, which she said was comforting.

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance, let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, lacking nothing,” Bure read the quote. “…But blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.”

In 2022, the “Fuller House” star faced a backlash and was accused of “bigotry” and of “selling out” after she voiced her opinion about traditional marriage when asked about leaving Hallmark for the Great American Family network.

In the Wall Street Journal interview, Bure said that GAF storylines would “keep traditional marriage at the core.” Her departure from the network came after Hallmark’s programming and advertising started involving LGBTQ-themed stories. Bure develops, produces and stars in movies on GAF.

Immediately following the media attention from her comments, Bure shared a lengthy statement addressing the backlash, saying that she had never intended to hurt anyone and that the media’s apparent need to divide people was only continuing to feed the current “toxic climate.” “We need Christmas more than ever,” she said.
