Justin Bieber scours Manhattan for a pool to get baptized
I guess it’s true what they say: All the money in the world won’t buy salvation. Not on demand, anyway.
Justin Bieber has been in the news lately for his bad behavior, not his faith, but as you may recall from his squeaky-clean days he was raised a devout Christian. Apparently, his faith is still important enough for him to spend Saturday looking for a swimming pool.
Bieber and his crew spent part of Saturday looking for a Manhattan property with a private pool where Hillsong Church NYC could conduct a cleansing ritual for him, according to Page Six. Bieber was presumably baptized as a child, so this must be some sort of rebaptism — maybe like renewing your passport, except it’s for heaven instead of Mexico.
In any case, Bieber’s faith renewal will have to wait; he couldn’t find a suitable private pool in time. I’m not surprised. If Justin Bieber called me asking to rent my Manhattan swimming pool on a Saturday night and insisted, “No, really, it’s for a baptism,” I would assume that “baptism” was slang for throwing eggs at strippers or something.
Maybe the fact that we’re talking about Justin Bieber’s return to the fold is a sign that he’s taking Miley Cyrus’ advice: “You’ve got a lot of money. Pay people to make sure you don’t get in trouble and party at your house,” Miley advised Justin.
