That’s a name I never thought I would mention on this blog! No, I’m not a fan. I’m male and 35 years old, so I’m out of his target audience by 20 years and one gender! But I was pleased to read this morning that in his interview with Rolling Stone magazine Bieber came out candidly in favor of the pro-life position. Bieber confessed, “I really don’t believe in abortion. It’s like killing a baby?” When asked about cases in which rape was involved Bieber was a little less sure of himself, but still came out on the pro-life side: “Um. Well, I think that’s really sad, but everything happens for a reason. ‘I don’t know how that would be a reason. I guess I haven’t been in that position, so I wouldn’t be able to judge that.”
It’s nice to hear a mega-star (especially a young one) voice his support for the pro-life side. While I do not look to a 16 year old pop star for sound moral advice, there are millions of teenage girls who will bank on his every word. I hope they hear about this interview and are influenced by his thinking in a good way.
