Hell hath no fury like a pastor who doesn’t like hair weave.
When it comes to expressing your religious beliefs, they say come as you are…but not if “how you are” involves any type of hair weave. Pastor AJ Aamir of Resurrecting Faith Church in Texas has gained attention for an unusual ban in his church: Weaves.
According to the Pastor’s holier than thou rule book (not the Bible), women who wear weaves have a false image of themselves and weaves are associated with women who have low self-esteem.
The Pastor suitably quoted Lil Wayne (who is all natural, honey) while backing his decision to ban weaves from his congregation. Pastor Aamir told Americapreachers.com:
“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.”
Pastor Aamir admits he was raised in a strict household. His mother and father are members of the Islamic faith. At 39 years old, he leads a congregation whose average age is 22.
We have more than a few thoughts about this “ban,” but we want to hear your comments in the section below.
