In Brief: Ruthless LGBT Attacks Against Christians

Candace Cameron Bure feels the wrath of the Rainbow Mafia for daring to support traditional marriage.

It’s not acceptable to stand for marriage as American society had always defined it before 2015. Cultural commentator Katrina Trinko recounts the latest Rainbow Mafia assault.

Candace Cameron Bure, of “Full House” and “Fuller House” fame, is speaking out about her desire to make Christmas movies that involve … wait for it … Christ.

But of course, just because the former Hallmark Christmas movie queen refused to bow the knee and pledge to make movies about LGBT couples, she’s now in a firestorm of a media controversy.

“Bigot. I don’t remember Jesus liking hypocrites like Candy. But sure. Make your money, honey. You ride that prejudice wave all the way to the bank,” tweeted “One Tree Hill” actress Hilarie Burton Morgan.

Numerous others rudely attacked Bure on social media.

Just to recap: Bure, who’s very public about her Christian faith, did not say anything negative about same-sex couples or same-sex marriage.

In the course of an interview with The Wall Street Journal that ran on Monday about her new role as chief creative officer at the Great American Family channel, she was asked whether she saw Great American Family prominently featuring same-sex couples.

“I think that Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core,” Bure told the Journal.

That’s it.

Since the firestorm began, Bure issued a long statement, saying, “I am a devoted Christian. Which means that I believe that every human being bears the image of God. Because of that, I am called to love all people, and I do.”

She added, “To everyone reading this, of any race, creed, sexuality, or political party, including those who have tried to bully me with name-calling, I love you.”

But don’t look for the criticism to die down, because in her statement, Bure still didn’t do what the activists demand; namely, pledge to make Christmas movies about LGBT couples.

The Hallmark Channel, which Bure left, has become rife with homosexual content. Leaving while saying something about it has earned her the full hatred of the Rainbow Mafia. Trinko says:

Make no mistake: LGBT activists and their allies are fighting not merely for same-sex marriage or certain legal protections, but for cultural dominance and forced approval of the LGBT lifestyle.

This is no time to be naive about that.

The attacks against Bure aren’t just about her. They’re about every Christian and traditional marriage advocate who won’t celebrate same-sex romantic relationships. They’re sending a clear message: You can’t just agree to disagree on this issue.

And if you try to stand your ground, you’ll be punished — if not legally, culturally. You’ll face implications in the workplace. You’ll face ostracization.

She concludes: “The message is clear: It’s 2022, and there’s no tolerance for anyone who values traditional marriage.”
