Despite her regular profession of being a Christian on television, talk show host and actor and sister to Kirk Cameron, Candace Cameron Bure recently let loose in an episode of “Fuller House”—a restart of the 80’s show “Full House”—pulling out her “dirty dancing” moves with her best friend in a lingerie-style dress, the two being referred to as “luscious lesbians.” The episode, which is the third for “Fuller House,” is raising concern among Christians who had looked up to the actor as a Christian role model.
In “Funner House,” Cameron Bure, who plays D.J. Tanner, spends the evening drinking and dancing at a night club with her best friend Kimmy Gibbler and sister Stephanie Tanner.
“When Stephanie, Kimmy and D.J. have a girls’ night out and leave Joey in charge of the kids, things get wild out on the town and at home,” the show description outlines.
As the women are preparing to leave the house, Tanner comments about her low-cut, short black dress, “I don’t know if I should be tugging this thing down or pulling it up.”
The women, who refer to themselves as the “She-Wolf Pack,” go to a night club called “Euphoria,” where they decide to order tequila shots. While at the club, Tanner tells Gibbler about her idea to do the “Dirty Dancing” routine together, and sister Stephanie Tanner speaks to M.C. Macy Gray about performing the song to get back at Gibbler’s “two-timing ex.”
During the dance-off, which also includes two men dancing suggestively, Tanner concocts a means to win by “bust[ing] out our big Dirty Dancing lift.”
“Sure that’s not the tequila talking?” Gibbler asks.
“Well, yeah, it totally is,” Tanner replies.
As the women win the dance-off, they are announced by Macy Gray as “luscious lesbians,” at which neither Tanner or her friend bat an eye.
“And the winners are these two luscious lesbians!” Gray declares. “Get up here you sexy people!”
“We’re the sexy people!” Tanner proclaims as she hurries to the stage and grabs the microphone. “I was just gonna stay in tonight, but my friends insisted that I go out and have some adult fun. They knew I needed to take care of me. Oh, I love you guys so d*rn much! Thank you, Euphoria! And the wait staff and the bartenders!”
“Shots for everybody! She-Wolf Pack is buying!” she announces.
Cameron Bure had posted a photograph of her dress from the episode on her Instagram page this past week, but took it down after fans quickly expressed concern, stating that her clothing was a disappointment for a woman who professes to be a Christian.
“I am so sad! I thought @Candacecbure stands up for Christian values?!?!” one commenter wrote. “This makes me so sad. I can’t let my kids watch this. Is this how you dress?”
Others also have expressed concern about the television show in general.
“I’m glad I watched it first before letting my six and nine year old watch,” another said. “Did not expect to see the language, adult themes (Kama Sutra [Hindu book on sexual intercourse]) and [breasts] popping out. I can see it now, ‘Daddy, what’s Kama Sutra?’ Extremely disappointed.”
One of the episodes of “Fuller House” shows Kimmy Gibbler and Stephanie Tanner locking lips for several seconds until Gibbler’s ex-husband pulls them apart, and another contains a scene with heavy sexual references.
Last month, Cameron Bure, who is outspoken about her profession of the Christian faith on the talk show “The View,” explained that she would be open to having homosexuality included in storylines on “Fuller House.”
“I’m always defending religious freedom and that’s what I was talking about on The View,” she said. “But, I’m an actress on a television show and I support all things that we go through as human beings and would love all our characters to explore whatever issues that are current in our culture and our society today and I’m 100% on board with that.”
Cameron is also known for her appearance on the show “Dancing with the Stars,” where she likewise engaged in risque’ dances with her partner, Mark Ballas.
On her website’s “Ministry” section, Cameron Bure urges others to repent of their sins, stating that she learned as an adult that she was not a Christian simply because she prayed the “sinner’s prayer” at age 12.
“God has changed me in ways that words can’t describe. He has transformed the way I think and live my life,” she writes. “I know that without Christ, the eternal consequences are devastating.”
“I urge you to surrender your whole life to Jesus, turn from your sin and trust in Him with all your heart,” Cameron states, sharing from Acts 17, which reads, “And the times of this ignorance God winked at: but now commands all men every where to repent: Because He has appointed a day, in the which He will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom He has ordained.”
