Candace Cameron Bure ‘Pleased’ With How She Handled Raven-Symone Dustup Over Anti-Gay Bakery

The “Fuller House” actress defended a bakery that refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple on “The View” in July

After Candace Cameron Bure infamously defended a bakery that refused to sell a wedding cake to a same-sex couple during a July episode of “The View,” the actress is speaking out about her argument with co-host Raven-Symoné and its impending backlash.

“I was pleased with how I handled myself … There was a lot of difficult feedback to read that was very personal, attacking me, and there was a lot of positive in there as well,” she told HuffPost Live. “I don’t know that I would make the same decisions that the bakers made, as a Christian, but I will always fight for the freedom.”

The 39-year-old continued to speak about freedoms in the U.S.

“That’s what’s so incredible about our country … We have the freedom to live our life the way we’d like to,” she said. “And everyone deserves that equality and freedom. In the same way, if something conflicts with someone’s deeply held religious beliefs, we should have the freedom to not have to deal with that or to have to be associated with it, just as on the opposite side, they don’t have to either.”

In July, Bure got into a heated debate with Raven-Symoné, when discussing the controversy surrounding the bakery. Raven-Symoné was quick to call the bakers’ actions discriminatory.

“The Oregon law bars businesses from discriminating against sexual orientation, race, disability, age or religion,” she argued. “And to me, it’s the same exact thing that they did back in the day saying that black people couldn’t do certain things because it’s my ‘religious belief.'”

Bure disagreed, saying, “It’s about constitutional rights. It’s about First Amendment rights. We do have the right to still choose who we associate with.”
