Right. So I had not paid too much attention to Justin Bieber. Until now. Asked for his views on abortion, he had this to say:
I really don’t believe in abortion,” Bieber told the magazine. “It’s like killing a baby?”
Now why the question mark at the end of that, I don’t know, and he went on to express reservations about rape. But this is still a positive statement.
I actually think his position on this stuff matters. When it comes to changing the culture, we could use a few more hip Hollywood voices to speak for life. And this guy has millions of adoring fans. I always figured that if you are going to be famous, even if it is only for 15 seconds, you should use that time well. I would anyway. For the record, yes, if I won an Oscar I would speak for life from the podium. You have my word.
Anyhoo. His positioning on sex before marriage strikes me as weak–since “waiting to fall in love” is just a little bit of a sketchy concept for your average teenager.
Nonetheless, I hereby do solemnly swear to stop making fun of Justin Bieber.by
