Going commando for Christ
WOMEN’S undergarments have been banned at the Lord’s Propeller Redemption Church in Nairobi because the pastor in charge has taken it into his noodle that bras and panties are a barrier to godliness.
According to a report in the Kenyan Post, Reverend Njohi said women who attend his services are to come to his church “commando style” in order to be “free in body and spirit” so they can receive Christ.
The Jezebel blog adds:
However, men, it would seem, can reach God just fine and dandy with their underwear on in Njohi’s church, because he hasn’t requested them to do anything similar.
See, ladies, it’s only your fancy schmancy frilly undies that block the sweet, loving power of the Lord from saving your soul. Maybe the ladies could just switch and wear boxers or Hanes BVDs or something, tho?
This ain’t an optional thing either. According to Metro the pastor warned there would be “grave consequences” if his female members did not adhere to the new rule, so most women who attended his next service did so hanging loose.
Njohi told mothers to check their daughters to make sure they don’t have underwear on, so they too could get closer to Jesus.
I must have missed that part in Bible study, where Jesus talked about how all the ladies need to ditch their panties and bras in order to praise him. But then again, that Jesus guy was always going on and on about stuff. It’s easy to see how I might have missed something.
