Video: The Moment a ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Contestant Shared Her Faith and Refused to Compromise — and the Crowd Cheered


If you’re a regular reader of TheBlaze, you know that former “Full House” star Candace Cameron-Bure is an unashamed Christian. So when she was announced as a contestant on “Dancing With the Stars,” there were likely plenty of people who wondered how she would balance her faith and convictions with the sexual aspects of the show.

This week, you got your answer: She wasn’t going to do anything that she felt compromised her values. And the audience seemed to eat it up.

Before her rumba with partner Mark Ballas, the show played a package showing Cameron-Bure explaining her relationship with Jesus Christ and her thoughts on the sexual and sensual side of the dance she was about to perform.

“I’m a Christian,” Cameron-Bure said in the video package. “My life revolves around my relationship with Jesus Christ. So with the overall tone of the dance and the costumes I’m not going to take a backseat. My voice will definitely be heard.”

In the video, the crowd can be heard cheering her position.

Cameron-Bure then proceeded to nix her partner’s costume idea that included him without a shirt. And while she admitted the dance was “sensual,” she maintained that she would not be over-the-top.

In fact, after the dance, host Erin Andrews asked her about the dichotomy.

“I feel like a sexual woman, I’ve been married for 18 years. I am a sexual woman,” Cameron-Bure said, the crowd offering another round of cheers. “But I want to reserve certain things for my husband, so we did the best that we could with a rumba that I still felt comfortable doing.”

The pair ended up getting a score of 21 out of a possible 30 on the dance.

Another example of a person wanting her cake and eating it too.

If I thought that dancing might infringe on my faith, morals or principles, I would not dance. If I felt that dance requirements might make me as a married woman uncomfortable, I would not dance. I wouldn't show up and try to make a "statement".

There is no mandate for this woman to dance on this show.

Money, money,money, money.

Why go on the show if so many of the aspects of it compromise her faith?

 Jealous, or something?

Nope.

Honest.

As a married woman, it would compromise my principles to dance on TV in a suggestive manner, and I would not.

But then, I'm neither trying to make a statement nor a money monger-

Why do people always assume one is jealous if they don't agree or understand someone's actions? I love Candace because she reminds me of my childhood and I still love watching Full House. But I think its a poor choice for her to be on this show. Its obviously not for her. No. Not jealous.

 jealous of what?  she stated that it compromised her morals and it was to sensual, then why dance?  You cannot say it is immoral but then say oh its ok because I am not that sensual:/  That makes no sense.  Noone is forcing her to be on the show.  Honestly I think she is motivated by money, why else would you go on a show you know has things and does things that are against your religious beliefs?

 So, she shouldn't get to enjoy a challenging competition on her terms?  I'm sure she probably figured they wouldn't score high enough because she wouldn't jump this guys bones for points.  Apparently, DWS 'people' didn't have a problem with her ideals.  They let her compete, afterall.

Do they actually have "stars" on the show?
