Candace Cameron Bure, better known for her role on the TV show ‘Full House” as D.J. Tanner, has fallen under the eye of the ‘feminist/political correctness’ movement for upholding her beliefs of a traditional wife and mother.
Words like “controversial” weren’t used when People magazine recently boosted ABC anchor Robin Roberts in a cover story telling people how her mother assured her that God approves of homosexuality. Instead, People saved that word for evangelical Christian actress Candace Cameron Bure.
The headline of the article written by Patrick Gomez was “Faith, Family, and Full House: The former child star opens up about her controversial beliefs – and how they guide her life as a traditional wife and mother.”
Gomez highlighted how Bure believes in what he referred to as “wifely submission”, and then drew a feminist opinion about her.

Bure’s beliefs – she’s a devout evangelical Christian – have made her something of a Hollywood outsider. A well-known author in Christian circles, Bure advocates for traditional marriage roles as described in the Bible, in which wives play a “submissive” role to their husbands.
By using the word “submissive” in her book ‘Balancing It All: My Story of Juggling Priorities and Purpose’, she has sparked rage and criticism from feminists.
Bure says she meant that while her voice is respected, and that “We split responsibilities as evenly as possible,” that it’s her husband who is the “leader” of the family. And she’s not apologizing for the arrangement: “Not everybody is going to like me or agree with my point of view,” Bure says. “But that’s okay.”
