Candace Cameron Bure took a break from “Dancing With the Stars,” where she danced her way to the finals earlier this week, to talk about her faith and morality.
“I think that faith is the basis of morality,” Bure told Pivot’s “TakePart Live.” “We could set our own standard but then who’s to say your standard is right and that’s why it always comes back to the foundation. For me that’s the word of God. Because it’s God. It’s not Candace’s opinion it’s not your opinion and what you think is best. It’s what God says. I think faith has everything to do with morality.”
Appearing on the millennial talk show hosted by Meghan McCain, Jacob Soboroff and Eddie Huang Tuesday night, the former “Full House” star agreed that people can be moral without faith.
“Absolutely. Of course,” Bure said in response to a question from Huang, who said he has no faith. “There are lots of good moral people out there that have no faith at all but where my concern is when we die. It’s eternity that’s at stake.”
Huang said his biggest concern is “when people want to impose their morals on society and legislate with the Bible as a foundation with faith as a foundation. That’s what I struggle with a little bit.”
Bure replied, “Yeah, I hear you…” before McCain, the daughter of Sen. John McCain, interjected with, “Eddie and I disagree.”
She closed the segment with a plug for Bure to take the “DWTS” crown.
Bure has been outspoken about her faith and how it guides her in her life and her 17-year marriage to pro hockey player Val Bure. She made headlines with her book, “Balancing It All: My Story of Juggling Priorities and Purpose,” that she takes a submissive role in their relationship.
Later, she explained, “The definition that I’m using with submissive is the biblical definition. It’s meekness. It is not weakness. It’s strength under control. It’s bridled strength.”
