“If you ever want to come to any of the services, any of them would love to have you.”
Justin Bieber has invited a queer fan struggling with her place in religion to his LGBTQ-inclusive church.
A two-minute clip of the American singer leaving his church service went viral, and shows the 24-year-old surrounded by fans – one of which questions Justin on whether his church accepts the gay community.
“Isn’t your church like really inclusive of the gay community?” she asks, to which he replies that anyone is welcome.
The fan then opens up to the Sorry singer about her Catholic background, and told him that she’s “trying to find a place that is inclusive of everybody”, because she recently came out as queer.
She adds: “So, I’m trying to find a nice place. ‘Cause, like no one is nice. Everybody is so homophobic.”
Justin offers his support, and invites the fan to his church: “Yeah, that breaks my heart for you. I’m so sorry. That’s not okay.
“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.”
