Justin Bieber: “I believe Jesus died on a cross for my sins”

“Hollywood is … a scary place. There’s a lot going on, there’s a lot of bad things, but there’s also a lot of good things. I’m able to live my dream, I’m able to do a lot of good things. Basically, I don’t even consider religion. Like, I’m a Christian, I believe in God, I believe that Jesus died on a cross for my sins. I believe that I have a relationship and I’m able to talk to him and really, he’s the reason I’m here, so I definitely have to remember that. As soon as I start forgetting, I’ve got to click back and be like, you know, this is why I’m here.”

— Teen heartthrob Justin Bieber (who, it turns out, is Catholic).

Well, this adds considerable support to Bart Simpson’s claim that all the best bands are affiliated with Satan.

Amen and Amen! It is wonderful to hear ANYONE in show business and especially someone so young, be committed to God. Thank you Justin and God Bless.
But I still think your hair style is a little curious.

“I’ve got to click back and be like, you know, this is why I’m here.”
