At last night’s concert in Kansas City, members of the infamous Westboro Baptist Church protested Justin “to remind all of those in attendance that America’s destruction is imminent.”
What’s their specific beef with Bieber? The group says he “has a platform given to him by God to speak to this world; he has a duty to teach obedience by hisMore >
