Video: The View’s Candace Cameron Bure Calls Justin Bieber a Sinner
The View’s Candace Cameron Bure caused a stir when she called Justin Bieber a sinner.
But while Cameron Bure called Bieber a sinner, believe it or not, she was actually sticking up for the singer, who recently made some comments on Christianity in an interview with Complex Magazine.
Cameron Bure is also a devout Christian who is known for her strong beliefs and causing controversy with some of her past statements, including a statement she made last year on The View when she said she was subservient to her husband.
In an interview that Bieber gave to Complex magazine, the singer spoke about his devotion to Jesus. Because of Bieber’s troubled past, there has some question about how devoted he really is. Bure chimed in saying she believes Bieber is correctly embracing the Bible’s teachings and said that,
“When someone says they’re a Christian, it doesn’t mean they’re perfect. They are just a recognized sinner in need of God’s grace. And that’s all Justin is saying. He recognizes that.” Bure continued, “He’s not going to say, ‘Oh, I’m a Christian and, all of a sudden, now I’m an angel, I’m gonna be perfect, I’m not gonna do stupid things.’ He’s not going to pretend he didn’t do stupid things in the past. I’m sure he’s gonna make a ton of mistakes from here on out, but he has the chance to make good decisions and we should applaud him and encourage him to continue.”
Michelle Collins, who has been extremely outspoke since joining The View and has found herself in hot water along with Joy Behar, following the nursing debacle where they questioned a Miss America contestant for wearing her nurse’s uniform for the talent competition, questioned Bieber’s sincerity and read off a quote that she said was “cocky.” Bure corrected the co-host that Bieber was actually quoting the Bible.
