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.
