Christian Actress Candace Cameron Bure Set to Co-Host 'The View'

Outspoken Christian actress Candace Cameron Bure will be co-hosting the popular daytime television show “The View.”

 

Bure, who has been a guest on “The View” previously, stated that she was very excited about the opportunity to be a co-host of the show.

 

“I am thrilled to be joining 'The View' as a regular co-host this fall. I am honored to be a new addition to such a strong group of bright and opinionated women, and I look forward to sharing this exciting journey with viewers new and old," she said. "Thank you everyone for your support, encouragement, prayers and enthusiasm for my time as new co-host on 'The [View].'"

 

When Bure was a guest on “The View” earlier this year she made waves when discussing the Christian cake-maker who refused to make a cake for a same-sex wedding.

 

“[The bakery] didn't refuse to bake the cake because of [the couple's] sexual orientation," Bure stated, showing she was not afraid to stand her ground. "In fact, they baked cakes for them previously. They had a problem with the actual ceremony because that — the ceremony — is what conflicted with their religious beliefs. They are saying that they stand for marriage between a man and a woman."

 

The Christian Post states that one of the reasons the show’s producers chose Bure was likely because of her conservative, Christian views, which will offset the views of some of the other hosts and keep the show’s ratings up. 

 

Bure said that she will not shy away from her faith while on the show.

 

"I'm a Christian. My life revolves around my relationship with Jesus Christ. Because how close my family is to me, and the big influence that my mom and dad had on me as a child and then into adulthood, I just never desired to be seen differently."

 

The latest season of “The View” airs Sept. 19.
