Garfield, whose father is Jewish, added that he was including himself in his assessment: "I have that in me, for sure."

Not everyone is going to agree with Candace Cameron Bure's evangelical Christian beliefs – and she's okay with that.
"As much as you want to try and explain your position to people, sometimes at the end of the day it is not worth it," the former Full House star tells PEOPLE. "I need to invest my time in my family and not trying to please everybody or getting them to see my own point of view."
As a contestant on this season of Dancing with the Stars, Bure, 38, has garnered praise and criticism for her conservative beliefs and her "boundaries" that have left her modestly clothed and with fully-dressed partners (even when pro dancer Mark Ballas wanted to show off his abs).

Billy Graham has prayed with every president from Harry Truman to Barack Obama, and inspired millions to follow Christ. This week, he delivered his final sermon – a video message he presented Thursday at his 95th birthday party – in which he looks into an uncertain future for the nation.
"Our country's in great need of a spiritual awakening," he says in the video, titled "My Hope America." "There have been times that I've wept as I've gone from city to city, and I've seen how far people have wandered from God."
He adds: "With all my heart, I want to leave you with the truth – that [Christ] loves you [and is] willing to forgive you of all your sins."
