“Mental illness” to believe Jesus talks to you: Candace Cameron Bure’s response
Actress Candace Cameron Bure is weighing in on the intense controversy surrounding “The View” host Joy Behar’s proclamation this week that it’s essentially “mental illness” to believe that “Jesus talks to you.”
“My initial reaction was that it was a tone deaf comment, but not a surprising one from someone who isn’t a believer,” Bure, who was a co-host on “The View” for two seasons before leaving in December 2016, told Faithwire on Thursday.
But the “Fuller House” star added that she felt, after watching the entire clip, that Behar reasonably explained her position on Vice President Mike Pence, despite Bure’s own disagreement with Behar’s sentiments.
“We understood where she stood with [the vice-president],” she said. “It was important for me to watch that entire clip and not just pull the one thing out that Joy said … there are many people who think the way that Joy does when they aren’t believers.”
Bure, who is an outspoken Christian, added that it’s important for Christians to remember that non-believers find the sort of spiritual experience described in Behar’s comments as “foreign.”
“It was a tone deaf comment, also an ignorant one, but you can’t blame her,” Bure said. “[For] someone who has no concept of the holy spirit, I think that that is a logical response to them.”
Bure also detailed how she would have responded if she was still sitting around “The View” table, noting that she would have drawn a distinction between a person stating that Jesus “talks” to him or her and someone explaining that he or she listens to the holy spirit’s guidance.
“I think I would have clarified there’s a difference,” she said. “There’s a difference when someone claims, ‘Oh, Jesus talked to me’ or ‘I’m listening to the holy spirit.’”
And Bure was careful to remind people that the initial comment that sparked Behar’s response came from TV star Omarosa Manigault Newman, a woman whom Bure said is “a reality TV queen” who “knows how to make headlines.”
