The Anne Frank Museum posted on their Facebook page a transcription of what Bieber wrote in the guest book after his moving visit, “Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber.
I don’t think I’m religious. I am spiritual. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sins. I believe that he put me in this position, and that I have to always give him the glory he deserves for putting me here. But I don’t consider myself religious. A lot of people who are religious, I feel like they get lost. They go to church just to go to church. I am not trying to disrespect them at all, you know, whatever works for you; but for me, I focus more on praying and talking to Him. I don’t have to go to church. I haven’t been to church in a long time, but I know I have a relationship with Him. People can be like, “If you don’t go to church, what do you mean, how are you a Christian?” But I am. I talk to Him, and that’s all.
Yeah, Bieber doesn’t have to go to Church. But isn’t being an active participant in a Christian community an essential part of being a Christian. And that includes going to Church at least sometimes … and because you want to go.

“You guys are evil,” he laughs in the new issue of Rolling Stone. “Canada’s the best country in the world. We go to the doctor and we don’t need to worry about paying him, but here, your whole life, you’re broke because of medical bills. My bodyguard’s baby was premature, and now he has to pay for it. In Canada, if your baby’s premature, he stays in the hospital as long as he needs to, and then you go home.”
Bieber, who turns 17 on March 1st, also has an opinion on abortion.
They’ve picked on Lady Gaga, Barack Obama, American soldiers and, most fervently, on gay men and women, but protesters from the Westboro Baptist Church have now a new target in the person of pop idol Justin Bieber. The WBC, led by Reverend Fred Phelps is trying to argue that, though we might not be aware of it, The Biebs and his millions of fans are the clearest sign that America – and humanity too – is doomed.
Okay, so he is wrong and vile 99.9% of the time, but is Fred Phelps really wrong on this one?
Except he goes and ruins it which he normal psychotic break with reality…
Don’t listen to Jim about summer activities, it is what happens on Saturday evenings that matters. I have discovered what Mark Stevens spends his Saturday evenings doing – you know, when he tells everyone that he is doing ‘sermon prep.’
