Justin Bieber Invites a Queer Fan to His Church: 'We'd Love to Have You'

Justin Bieber reached out to a queer fan who has been struggling with LGBTQ inclusivity in religion.

The “Sorry” singer supported the fan after she opened up to him, as seen in a video that made its way online on Monday night (June 11).

In the two-minute clip, Justin appears to snap photos and chat with fans after his service at Hillsong Church.

When the fan asked whether or not Justin‘s church is accepting of the gay community, Justin replied that it is and that anyone is invited.

“I’m trying to find a place that is like, inclusive of everybody, ’cause I came out as queer not long ago,” the fan went on. “So, I’m trying to find a nice place. ‘Cause, like no one is nice. Everybody is so homophobic.”

“That’s the sad thing,” Justin said before giving the fan a hug. “It can be like that sometimes, yeah. That breaks my heart for you. I’m so sorry. That’s not OK. If you ever want to come to any of the services, any of them would love to have you. We’d love to have you in there, you’re more than welcome to come any time.”

Justin and Hailey Baldwin have been hanging out together in Miami for the Vous conference.

    Of course, the Holy Rollers at Hillsong would love to welcome gay people into their church! It’s an opportunity to tell them how fallen they are, and then drive the gay demons out of them by screaming out incoherent gibberish, and then feel that they have saved a fallen soul and reclaimed part of the culture for Christ.

    Ten minutes of googling will show you that Bieber’s pastor is an anti-gay fundie preaching the same BS as all the other anti-gay fundies, and is a big promoter of “ex-gay” quackery. The first time I was clued in to how bogus the ex-gay thing was as a teenager was when I sought out “ex-gay counseling” myself from my Evangelical youth pastor. He gave me a couple of books by Pentecosals warning me that playing Dungeons and Dragons may have opened my life up to demonic influences, and referred me to a program run by Pentecostals. Mind, you, this was in a Presbyterian Church – the denomination whose whole raison d’etre is being quiet, orderly, traditional, disciplined, and basically as boring but well-behaved as possible. I figured a church that had been around since the Reformation would have some tried-and-true, safe and orderly approach to “ex-gay” therapy. Instead, I was being sent to the Holy Rollers down the block to have my gay demons cast out. It was a big eye-opener.
