pastor-no weaves allowed in church-the jasmine brand

This is certainly an interesting concept. Pastor A.J. Aamir recently told his leadership staff at Resurrecting Faith, that they should not wear weaves. Why? The Texas pastor feels women wearing weaves present a false image of themselves and are associated with women who have low self-esteem. In an interview with AmericaPreachers.com, he explained:

Our black women are getting weaves trying to be something and someone they are not. Be real with yourself is all I’m saying….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.

According to the site, the 39-year-old admits to being raised in a strict household, with his parents members of the Islamic faith. The pastor also acknowledges he cannot legally prohibit women from wearing weaves in church, but he still highly disapproves it.

    Really? Wow…this is shameful. What happened to come as you are?! His reasoning is unreasonable and a personal opinion. #Fired!

      WWJD? Concern about the inner man not the outer. Is this a counseling center or saving soul church? So next, no relaxing, Pressing, Braids or curls?! Or is this Pastor concerned that you will spend more money on hair and not in the collection plate?
