Candace Cameron Bure is hoping a new faith-based movie will make people "turn to Jesus."
The actress took to Instagram on Friday, Feb. 24, to praise and promote a film called "Jesus Revolution."
"@jesusrevolutionmovie hits theaters THIS FRIDAY, February 24th which means if you didn't have any weekend plans, now you do!" she captioned a trailer for the fifth-based film. "Ultimately I pray this movie is used for His glory, and for people to hear the gospel and turn to Jesus."
The conservative Christian "Full House" star made headlines late last year when she said that her new TV network — Great American Family — would not feature gay couples.
"I think that Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core," Candace told WSJ. in November 2022. The people who work for GAF, Candace said, are "Christians that love the Lord and wanted to promote faith programming and good family entertainment."
Candace, who previously starred in several Hallmark Channel projects, said she switched to GAF because it fit her "brand."
Following her comments, many in Hollywood slammed the actress. "One Tree Hill" star Hilarie Burton called the actress a "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," Hilarie said.
After the backlash, Candace said, "All of you who know me, know beyond question that I have great love and affection for all people. It absolutely breaks my heart that anyone would ever think I intentionally would want to offend and hurt anyone."
