Candace Cameron-Bure wants her Facebook haters to know that she sees their comments and is not impressed with the vitriol regarding her religious beliefs.

Having joined the Dancing with the Stars cast for Season 18, the former Full House star is back in the spotlight, and for her, this hasn’t been totally positive.

"[L]ately, as my FB page has been growing rapidly with new ‘likes,’ it’s becoming a sensitive issue for me to post because of the dread in my heart," she wrote.

"Knowing I am going to get discouraging comments," she says, makes it less fun to even post on her page, which has more than half a million Likes.

"[A]ll I see is a bunch of religious people throwing around bible verses attacking each other," she writes, with non-religious people then going after them for it.

Cameron defended her religious beliefs, but said that is is never her intention to make her Facebook page all about them or to cause any sort of controversy:


"I share with you what is most precious in my life; my family!"

"My Facebook Page is not a Christian blog, it’s not a Jesus FB page and it’s not a place I’m going to flood with constant scriptural photos or only Christian articles."

"It doesn’t mean that because I don’t do those things, that Jesus isn’t the love of my life. My Facebook is a reflection of the true me, faulty and all!"

"I’m sure some posts will make you smile and others might disappoint you. I wont ever stop being the real me to be an illusion of a better but fake Christian version of myself."

Back in January, Cameron-Bure’s Christian values made headlines after she told the Huffington Post that she takes a "submissive" role in her marriage.

She clarified that she meant the Biblical definition of "submissive," which she claimed has more of a "meek, humble" connotation as opposed to a "weak" one.

She is also the younger sister of Kirk Cameron, whose outspoken anti-gay views have caused controversy more than a few times over the years.

Think this fervor will only intensify as she takes to the parquet floor on Dancing with the Stars? All we can do is stay tuned … and really hope not.
