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.

He continued:

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.

Black Hair Weave

It’s all mine. Honest.

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?

    Let the church say amen! It’s his word to preach the word and teach, not worry about what people are doing whether they can afford it or not. That’s not his business. You educate through the word.

      Yes, I think his message would have been received better had he spoke about it during a sermon. Calling your members out to the world is not, IMHO, the way to get change.

    Yeah, this is a bit much. Even if you aren’t a fan of weaves, this is taking it too far.

  3. LOL yes you are wrong for that pic. it’s funny though. The thing with this pastor is I can see a point. I don’t think God cares at all if you wear weave IF you can afford it. Unfortunately there are way too many people neglecting to do more important things like pay bills on time or even pay people back they borrowed from. BAM! Lol. It’s sad to know there are people who get a welfare check and go buy weave with the money. Same goes for those rims. How you gonna buy $1,000 rims on a car with a value of $300???

    Priorities are wrong.

      I agree that his message has merit but I think the delivery was all wrong. Let’s focus on getting to the root (pun intended :-)) of the problem instead of throwing our women members under the bus.

      Are you offering credit counseling? Do you have debt classes? Can you tie your message into a sermon?
