Days after getting a permanent body marker of his Lord and Savior, Justin Bieber has gone on record with his feelings about God and religion.

In the latest issue of V, Justin says his faith may be private – well, except for that new tattoo – but that doesn’t make it any less real or important.

“A lot of people who are religious, I think they get lost,” Bieber tells the magazine. “They go to church just to go to church. I’m not trying to disrespect them, but for me, I focus more on praying and talking to Him. I don’t have to go to church.”

An interesting take.

Bieber also compares himself to undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather, but fortunately for any personal reasons.

“Now that I’m on top, everyone wants to bring me down,” he says. “Everyone’s trying to tug at me and take my spot. Like Floyd Mayweather, he’s the best boxer in the world. Now he is a champion. Every time he goes to a fight now, people are like, ‘He’s going to lose this time.'”

Hmmm… We’re not really familiar with these critics that are supposedly aiming to take Justin down, the guy is really as beloved as any celebrity out there. What do you think of this combative side to Bieber?
