“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.” – See more at: http://madamenoire.com/292182/unbeweaveable-pastor-bans-weaves-from-his-church/#sthash.L9gItOWI.dpuf

Pastor A.J. Aamir ofResurrecting Faithin Waco, Texas believes if it didn’t grow from your scalp, it doesn’t belong there.

Aamir told American Preachers that he instructed his female staff to stop wearing weave because “our black women are getting weaves trying to be something and someone they are not. Be real with yourself is all I’m saying.”

Yep, he said it: Grow what the Savior gave ya and leave Black Beauty alone! He also admits that he cannot legally ban weaves, but still does not approve of them.

“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” he said. “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.”

But should he?

Veronica Wells at Madame Noire thinks Aamir should stick to preaching the Gospel and keep his hair tips to himself writing, “wearing weaves doesn’t equate low self-esteem or a person’s mind is inherently shallow or lacks substance, no more than it means a woman who wears her own hair or is natural is somehow enlightened.”

Over at Clutch Magazine, they had this to say: “While I sympathize with his concern about his parishioners’ financial struggles, I wonder if the good pastor is equally outspoken on truly important issues like safe sex, education, HIV testing, and political involvement.”

After taking a look a several online forums and comments sections of Black news sites, it seems like this topis is evoking a lot of emotional responses. I guess the pastor has forgotten one of the main rules in the Black community: Don’t talk smack about a Sistah’s hair!

Well, let us know what you think of the pastor’s weave sermon in our poll HERE!

I know some folks are going to be mad about this one. And rightly so. We all have our own preferences and notions about different hair types but sometimes, it would really be best if we kept those thoughts to ourselves. Wearing weaves doesn’t equate to low self esteem or that a person’s mind is inherently shallow or lacks substance, no more than it means a woman who wears her own hair or is natural is somehow enlightened. At the end of the day, a person’s hair is only going to tell you so much about them. And perhaps that’s what Aamir is missing here. And furthermore, there’s just something so controlling and distasteful about a man telling women how they can and can’t wear their own hair. I understand Aamir is focused on the mental and financial
