Candace Cameron Bure defends bakery that refused to make a lesbian wedding cake while co-hosting “The View.” If you know anything about Bure, you know she is extremely religious. She has made no excuse for her Christian beliefs while being on television. According to a report from Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday, Candace Cameron Bure went head to head with Raven-Symone about the bakery’s refusal to make a cake. With the tension running high between “religious” folks and the LGBT community, this could have been a lot worse.
It was not shocking that Candace Cameron Bure defends the bakery for their decision not to make the lesbian wedding cake. Going up against Raven-Symone on “The View” is not something many want to do, especially when it comes to LGBT issues. Up until recently, there was only speculation that Raven-Symone was a lesbian. After an interview with Oprah she did last year, her personal life was put on display. While this debate was pretty civil, fans of “The View” are hoping to see more of the head-to-head action from these two ladies.
The bakery in question is facing a fine of $135,000 for refusing to make the lesbian wedding cake. Candace Cameron Bure defends the bakery and the right to religious freedom, but Raven-Symone challenged that. She compared this to segregation issues, though Bure said the two are not the same. Now that SCOTUS ruled all marriage is equal, there will likely be plenty more cases like this. “The View” has been quite exciting over the last few days, and it looks like it isn’t slowing down.
