Pastor AJ Aamir of Resurrecting Faith Church in Texas has gained national 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 tend to have low self-esteem.
In a statement, Aamir said:
“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.”
