Why ask why

"Pastor A.J. Aamir recently told his leadership staff at Resurrecting Faith, DO NOT wear 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” said Pastor Aamir.
Pastor Aamir admits he was raised in a strict household. His mother and father are members of the Islamic faith. At 39 years old, he leads a congregation whose average age is 22."

Ok. Really? Why, Pastor Aamir, are you singling out women? And women wear wigs and weaves for many reasons. Are the men in your congregation keeping it that one hunnit? Mother/Father God is not asking this of us. You wanna know why people are leery of religions, well, because religious leaders start making shit up like this. That's why.
