Leftists Bash Actress For Submitting To Husband

Candace Cameron Bure

One upsetting lesson learned through the recent controversy surrounding “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson is that biblical truths are now considered hate speech by today’s rabid leftists. While his comments surrounding homosexuality were arguably unrefined, he was roundly pilloried by secularists and gay activists who deemed his faith-based views bigoted.

The left’s intolerance of Christianity extends much further than the debate over homosexuality, though. As actress Candace Cameron Bure recently discovered, any reference to one’s Christian values can cause a conniption among the perpetually offended progressive crowd.

Best known for her portrayal of D.J. Tanner on the long-running comedy series “Full House,” Bure has joined her brother, Kirk Cameron, as an outspoken Christian role model in recent years.

She has been making the media rounds this week to promote her recent book, “Balancing It All: My Story of Juggling Priorities and Purpose.” In it, she writes about her experiences as a working mother and wife; however, leftists have focused their attention on her adherence to the biblical principle of submitting to her husband.

Though she offered a sound, logical response to those who question her position, radical feminists have implicitly labeled her Public Enemy No. 1.


“I am not a passive person,” she wrote in the book, “but I chose to fall into a more submissive role in our relationship because I wanted to do everything in my power to make my marriage and my family work.”

In a subsequent interview, she further explained her comments were based on “the biblical definition” of submission, declaring “it is meekness, it is not weakness. It is strength under control, it is bridled strength.”

Of course, this is exactly the plan God provided for marriage – which is precisely why the godless left is so incensed. Feminists have spent decades urging women to shun the prison of marriage, only to usher in a generation of unfulfilled and angry spinsters who bought into the propaganda.

Now, a well-adjusted, happy mother of three is making headlines for turning that leftist rhetoric on its head. Naturally, those trying to prop up the failed message of feminism are rushing to tear down her deeply held beliefs.

For the record, Bure confirmed she and her husband, pro hockey player Val, “are equal” in importance, noting “we are just different in our performances within our marriage.”

    As far as I am concerned, and I am confident of myself but also a believer in strong families and was married for 50 years, the man is head of the house and as such the woman lets him have final say in important matters – especially finance and an equal say in the raising of the children. If I disagreed then we talked out the situation, but just as in a corporation there must be a CEO, so too in a marriage. The whole secret is to pick a husband carefully – just as the man should pick a wife carefully. Sexual attraction is highly important but so are other factors. I know this view will be a shock to the system of any feminazis who read my comments but so what. Marriage should be for life – in sickness and in health – forever.

      I'm not a 'feminazis' but I don't agree with all you say.
      I wish to point to one part of your comment. How are you a couple if one makes the decisions? Doesn't the Bible state you are joined as one? If so, why does one have all say? You wouldn't be as one then would you.
      I believe much as you do, with one exception. When it comes to decisions, it's a joint effort. The man is to be the 'spokesman', if you will, for the family.
      Men and women have defined roles, but when it comes to decisions, it's a joint effort. Not just the opinion of one.
      Remember Adam and Eve had equal control in the Garden of Eden. Why would that change?

    • Amen ! My husband and I are 31 years and going strong ! Three grown children that we raised within our beliefs and they are living those same beliefs in their adult lives. We stand together always, in both good and bad times, sickness and in health, FOREVER!!!!
      By the way , I love the term feminazi, it fits them to a T !!!!!

    In todays changing world the wussifiction of men is becoming ever present. Most movies make the women the tough guy while the male plays a pansy role. It's not only in movies but TV series also have the women standing up peeing while the man sits on the bowl.To go back in time when the man was head of the house and the women ran the house.

    Many women are very smart and ONLY ALLOW themselves to submit to man when deemed necessary because many husbands are absolute idiots and refuse to comprehend common horse sense. There are good guys but the group is getting smaller by the minute. Never forget MEN WROTE THE BIBLE…there definitely could have been a twisting of words because God took Adams rib for equality not from his foot for trampling.

      As a younger, but maybe not as wise as old, lady I'll agree with some of what you say, but not all.
      First, and in my mind most important, the Bible was copied by man but it was written by God. I make that distinction. Alterations of the original Bible was done by man.
      God gave equal control over the Garden of Eden. With that in mind, I personally believe man is misreading the Bible.
      My stance is man is to be the 'spokesman' for the family. While there are clear lines between responsibilities of a couple, it is equal when it comes to decisions. Man is to be the bread winner and women the caregiver. Both jobs equally important.
      When it comes to decisions, since they are to be a team, it is to be a joint decision.
      Never is a woman to 'submit' to a man. Never is a man to 'dominate' a woman.
