Candace Cameron Bure isn’t shy about speaking out about her faith despite backlash over her ‘traditional marriage’ comments. The Full house The star, who describes herself as a “devout Christian,” spoke to Fox News Digital about a difficult year, including the loss of her TV dad, Bob Saget.

“I’ve had a really tough year on a personal level, which has really shown me who my true friends are. Since losing Bob this year,” Bure shared. “It felt like a lot of loss this year. When you have those friends who are there and show up, I’m thankful. I’m so thankful to my friends, my real friends and my family, of course.”

Bure said God has helped her through difficult times.

“My faith is so core and foundational to who I am that sometimes I don’t verbalize it because it’s just my assumption,” she explained. “It’s like, well, ‘If you get Candace, you get faith.’ They are one and the same. He is with me all the time. It’s in everything I do.”

Bure added: “I am very grateful for God’s protection and love.”

The 46-year-old actress has been making headlines all week after comments she made on the Wall Street Journal sparked backlash. In the interview, Bure said she left the Hallmark Channel for the Great American Family network, as the latter aligned more closely with her values.

“My heart wants to tell stories that have more meaning, purpose and depth behind them,” O Christmas present star, who has also been appointed as chief creative officer at the company, said. “I knew the people behind Great American Family were Christians who loved the Lord and wanted to promote faith programming and good family entertainment.”

Hallmark is preparing to release its first gay holiday movie. While Bure declined to comment specifically on her decision to leave the network, she simply said, “Basically it’s a completely different network than when I started because of the change in leadership.”

Bure concluded that LGBTQ stories won’t air in her new home, stating, “I think The Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core.”

After this remark sparked controversy, the Fuller House defended herself on social media.

“All of you who know me know without a doubt that I have great love and affection for all people. It breaks my heart that anyone would think that I would intentionally want to offend and hurt anyone. It saddens me that the media often seeks to divide us. , even around a subject as comforting and joyous as Christmas movies. But given the toxic climate in our culture right now, I shouldn’t be surprised. We need Christmas more than ever,” he said.

β€œTo the members of the media responsible for using this opportunity to rekindle conflict and hatred, I have a simple message: I love you anyway. those who tried to assassinate my character: I love you. To everyone reading this, of any race, religion, sexuality, or political party, including those who tried to bully me with boos, I love you,” Bure continued. “And with pure love as my sole motivation, I hope you’ll join me in share God’s hope for the whole world this Christmas season. Call this my Christmas wish.”
