Religious observance is on the decline.
A big reason why is because entertainment culture has become so secular and hostile toward Christianity.
But one actress defended a fellow Christian performer against the ridiculous outrage mob.
Christian actress Candace Cameron Bure has had to weather the storm after being attacked for her religious faith.
Bure began working for the Great American Family network, which has a Christian ethos built in.
During an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Bure was asked if Great American Family would feature same-sex couples, and she responded, “I think that Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core.”
The knives came out for her immediately.
Even friend and television sister Jodie Sweetin indirectly took shots at her.
Now one of Bure’s colleagues is quitting the Great American Family network.
Actor Neal Bledsoe wrote in a message, “My life wouldn’t be where it is today without the love, support, and guidance of the LGBTQIA+ community…As someone who struggled as a young man with our society’s extremely narrow definition of masculinity, it was their community that provided me with refuge and a guiding light when my life felt lost. And now, if I cannot stand up for that community in their time of need, my debt to them means nothing…So, I want to be very clear: my support for the LGBTQIA+ community is unconditional – nothing is worth my silence or their ability to live and love freely in a world that we are lucky enough to share with them…As an artist, I yearn to be proud of the work I create. But, the thought that my work could be used to deliberately discriminate against anyone horrifies and infuriates me…I hope GAF will change, but until everyone can be represented in their films with pride, my choice is clear. I look forward to working with creators who put no limits on the stories we tell and follow through on their message of values with open arms.”
However, not all celebrities ganged up on Bure.
Actress Danica McKellar, who played Winnie Cooper on the hit series The Wonder Years, explained, “Neal is a wonderful person. He’s such a great actor and I have enjoyed working with him so much. He and I both share our love and support of the LGBT community for sure…I don’t agree with his interpretation of her comments. I just didn’t see them the same way…[Bure] started the sentence with ‘I think,’ which is not definitive, and she ended it with ‘at its core,’ which doesn’t mean exclusively…I don’t agree with his interpretation, but I love him to death and I wish him well.”
The entire “controversy” surrounding Bure is a clear example of how LGBTQ activists have moved from tolerance to compliance.
McKellar added, “I’d like to set the record straight about something. I’m a new Christian, and I’m so grateful for that. As I always have, I celebrate all forms of healthy love between adults, and I support representation…The idea that Christianity would judge any form of love simply baffles me…I’m still new to my faith journey, but as far as I can tell, Jesus loves and includes everyone. That’s kind of His thing…”
Leftists won’t stop until they’ve completely stigmatized Christianity.
