Ladies, go ahead and cut those 19 inch Malaysian extensions out of your head if you want to praise the Lord, because a southern pastor has banned hair weaves from his congregation!
Pastor AJ Amir of the Resurrecting Faith Church in Waco, Texas believes that women who wear hair extensions have a false image of themselves and have low self esteem, so he does not want any of the women of his congregation wearing any.
The pastor was raised in a strict household by Isalmic parents, he is 39-years old, and his congregation is very young with the average age being around 22-years old.
The funny thing about this ban is that he used a Lil’ Wayne verse to drive his weave ban home: He said this to 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 realizes that he legally cannot prohibit women from wearing weaves in church, but he still disapproves.
There are reports that a minister is infecting women in the Â Full Gospel Church in Atlanta congregation with HIV. Not only is he passing along a deadly disease but he is reportedly married as well which means he is also committing adultery. Since the story hit the media the pastor of the church has decided to speak out to try and separate himself and the congregation from the incident saying that he is not a minister there, but only the husband of his assistant and is not a member. This is what Straightfromthea reports:
In stunning and breaking news, Bishop Eddie Long has officially announced he will be stepping down from the pulpit of New Birth in Lithonia, GA.Â In church today Bishop Long announced he will beÂ taking a leave of absense to “take time to heal with family”.

What do ya’ll think?Â We think he has went way too far.Â He needs to readÂ Exodus 20:3Â “You shall have no other gods before me” and Matthew 12:31-32Â 31 “And so I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. Â 32 Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.”
