The Candace Cameron Bure Boob Incident

Last week when celebrating their 24th wedding anniversary, Candace Cameron Bure, with her husband’s approval, posted what was meant to be a fun and light hearted picture of her husband cupping her fully clothed breast.  And right after she posted it, the Christian modesty mob came for her.  The sight of a married man cupping his wife’s clothed breast was just too much for them to bear.

If you have read her writings for women and compared them with mine you will know that I am definitely to the right of Candace in many areas including her views of submission and careerism among women.

But I will give credit where credit is due. Candace may not be where she needs to be on these subjects, but she is FAR closer to the target than most of the Christian female authors and bloggers today.

And I love the statement she made in response to those who criticized her posting the picture of her husband cupping her breast:

“He can touch me anytime he wants, and I hope he does. This is what a healthy, good marriage and relationship is all about”.

  1. We would be remiss to fail to point out the ethical standard of God’s word.

    “Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth. Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.”

    ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭5:18-19‬ ‭

    Faux-piety expressed as sexual shame is a grievous error that invites Satan to destroy marriages and burden Christians with feelings of guilt and shame and that over what God has declared good. This is what happens when the law of man is substituted as a counterfeit law of God. Delighting in the breasts of one’s wife is a hallmark of Christian marriage and availing one’s breasts to her husband is a delight to the submitted wife. Avoiding intimacy or any appearance of intimacy is “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”
    ‭‭2 Timothy‬ ‭3:5‬ ‭

  2. The “boob grab” is not the problem here. Delighting in your wife’s body, as well as her breast is a biblical principle. I would be more concerned of the excessively tight shirt more than anything else, but peoples view on modesty vary throughout Christianity; at least her breast / cleavage were not on display via a low cut shirt.

    The real issue here should be the need to post such a picture on social media. I have often flirted and fondled my wife in such a way, but is was done with discretion. Those intimate moments are, and should take place and be enjoyed, but it is not for the eyes of other people. Your wife’s sexuality and body should be protected and kept private from everyone else. The marriage bed is sacred, and should not be made available to the whole world. Obviously they are not having sex or doing anything extremely vulgar.

    Let’s be a bit wiser in the use of social media. For weaker Christians this will be a stubbing block for sure. Don’t forget that there are people that hunt down this kind of nonsense in order to bring shame onto Christ and those who would claim His name. Let us not use that Name in vain.
