*I often have this image in my head of God sitting up in heaven with his head in his hands saying…no, asking, ‘Why?’
‘Why do they keep blaming Me for their actions?’ ‘Why do they use My name so freely, when they don’t have the courage to be accountable to their own prejudices?’
This is the vision that surfaces in my unabashedly overactive mind, whenever I hear of claims such as the one you see in the headline above.
Nevertheless, there it is. A politician is now saying God TOLD HIM to ban baggy pants.
Who can we confirm this with? Who are we to believe?
According to an article in Your Black World, Frank Goodman, a councilman in Dadeville, Alabama told The Daily Beast he is fed up seeing young men walk around in saggy pants, so he prayed on it.
“Seeing the young boys with pants hanging down, having to walk wide-legged, holding their pants up to keep them from falling down—now it’s gotten real bad,” Goodman said. “It’s something I couldn’t take no more.”
