It's been about a week since Justin Bieber's infamous Rolling Stone interview was unveiled to the public, showing the teen idol to be a very clueless 16-year-old with extremely vague, simplistic ideas about an array of social issues such as war, health care, teen sex, rape and abortion.
What stuck out to everyone were these lines:
"I really don't believe in abortion. I think an embryo is a human. It's like killing a baby."
Well, it actually is killing a baby, not like killing a baby. But now we sound crazy.
On abortions that come after someone has been raped:
"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."
Rape happens because some people are disgusting animals with violent, inhuman streaks in their souls. That's the reason, really. Beebs' line makes us assume he will wait until he is raped or a raper to have an opinion on rape. Huh.
On war: "Canada doesn't go around attacking people."
Sort of. We guess.

To be fair, Bieber is a born-again Christian, so his ideas are faith-based, which doesn't make them any less strange. They are just his 16 year old thoughts.
Anyhow, Rocks Off made a meme with the Bieber quote. Enjoy and proliferate.
