Pastor Bans Hair Weaves in His Church
advised his female congregation not to wear weaves to church. 39 year
old Pastor A.J. Aamir said he grew wary of looking out over his
congregation and seeing a sea of hair weaves. Pastor Aamir feels women
wearing weaves presents a false image of themselves and are associated
with women who have low self-esteem.
"Our black women are getting weaves trying to be something and someone
they are not. Be real with yourself is all I'm saying," Pastor A.J.
Aamir told AmericaPreachers.com.He said he "highly disapproves" of
women wearing weave in his church, where the average age of the
congregation is 22. Meaning most female members wear weaves.
"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
$300weave on her head. No. I will not be quiet about this."But why is
a pastor concerning himself with a woman's hair? I thought it was more
about what's in your heart and soul and not what's on your head?
Anyway, I'm sure he'll change his mind when tithes and offering
decreases. Then he will be yelling 'All weaves aboard' Lol. #kidding.
