Candace Cameron Bure told the hosts of Fox & Friends that jokes about hell should be out of bounds because the Bible described it as a “disgusting” place.
At a campaign event for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton over the weekend, former secretary of state Madeleine Albright warmed up the crowd by joking that there was “a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other.”
On Wednesday, Fox News host Brian Kilmeade asked Bure, who is the sister of creationist actor Kirk Cameron, to respond to Albright’s remarks.
“Anyone that can even joke, if it was a joke, about hell,” Bure gasped. “There’s nothing to me that’s funny about that.”
“If anybody actually read their Bible and saw what — the description of Hell, it’s disgusting,” she added.
Bure argued that women who opposed abortion rights should not be included with those who were going to hell.
“To say that they’re not feminists, that they’re anti-women if they’re not supporting another woman is — you know, that to me is what’s wrong with feminism,” she explained. “That is a turnoff for me as a woman.”

Checking blood for coronavirus antibodies – 3 questions answered about serological tests and immunity
Coronavirus testing in the United States is moving into a new phase as scientists begin looking into people’s blood for signs they’ve been infected by SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. This technique is called serological testing.
Virologist Daniel Stadlbauer helped develop a serological test to detect SARS-CoV-2 antibodies and helped transfer it from the research lab to the clinical setting. Epidemiologist Aubree Gordon regularly uses serological assays in her research studies on influenza and dengue fever. She’s now established serological testing for SARS-CoV-2 in her research lab.
