For those of you who don’t know, allow me to explain baptism: In the Christian faith, getting baptized is a sacrament meant to cleanse you of sin. Most of the time, we give it to babies so that we can get them on board early, although occasionally adults do it as a means of cleaning house. Well, after Justin Bieber‘s transgressions, he’s decided to best move for him is to get baptized, because apparently you can just use sacraments to score publicity now. Page Six reports …

One source said, “Justin and his team spent time on Saturday searching for a place with a pool where they could conduct a baptism for him, a cleansing ritual, with the Hillsong Church. But they couldn’t find a place in time.” Another source added, “Justin is serious about his Christian faith, and after recent events, he needed to take a pause.”

All right, let’s break down why this won’t accomplish a whole lot of anything, shall we? Now, baptism essentially resets the soul to square one: It doesn’t make you better, it’s supposed to scrub off all the sin so you can try again. BUT, and this is where things fall apart, if you can’t be bothered to be a better person afterwards, you’re really just repeating the cycle. tl;dr, Justin is essentially painting a turd gold.
