I hate to be cynical about it, but his entire image is marketed as being a family-friendly, cute kid. Of course he's going to say this. The proof will be what happens when he hits puberty.
Although I have to say kudos to him for having this opinion if it truly is his own. I don't think he would be a good role-model though.
I clicked on the article expecting to be excited, but I was somewhat let down. On the abortion issue, he soft-peddles the issue when it comes to the cases of rape and incest. And for the chastity issue, he only encourages teens to wait until they're "in love".
Like you, I hate to be cynical, but those are the types of "in between" views many of my Catholic high school friends had when they were 16 before they grew older and rejected Catholic teaching outright.
I pray that Bieber is able to grow more firm in his moral resolve as he grows older. With all the fame and fortune, he's got a lot stacked against him.
