God Condemns Your Hair Weave
Yes, I’m wrong for this pic.
An unknown pastor (A.J. Aamir) from some obscure church in Waco, TX (Resurrecting Faith), has banned his staff from wearing hair weaves, reports AmericaPreachers.com.
Pastor Aamir believes women who rock Yaki have low self-esteem and are presenting a false image.
And he’s not even a natural.
Long hair don’t care. What kind of mess is that? I don’t want my members so focused on what’s on their heads and not IN their heads.
I lead a church where our members are struggling financially. I mean really struggling. Yet, a 26 year old mother in my church has a $300 weave on her head. NO. I will not be quiet about this.
I don’t even wear weave but if this were my church, just on principle, I’d show up at the next service looking like a Bronner Brothers Hair Show model.
I have no problem with fake hair. I don’t think everyone should be natural and I don’t think weaves are the devil.
I do, however, have a problem with a man (once again) telling a woman how she should or shouldn’t look.
And if we’re being fair, can we address the men, too? You know, the ones with $1000 rims and $300 kicks?
As women we have enough problems dealing with sexism/discrimination/beauty standards on a daily basis. When I come to (literally) get my life I shouldn’t have to worry about my pastor sizing me up.
You see, Pastor, when I’m in church I’m focusing on the Word. Can you say the same?
