A while ago there was a controversy surrounding Erica Campbell being a top gospel singer but dressing sexy. Ms. Campbell showed up for a photoshoot in this white dress stunting on all fools. The dress was turtleneck, long sleeved and past her knees. And it fit her like a glove. She showed she had an amazing body with curves to die for as a mother of three. When I saw the picture I didn't even THINK it would blow up into super secular crazy but well...it did.
I didn't have much to say because well...hey...she looked good, she sounds good and she wasn't breaking any rules but people were MAD.ABOUT.IT. Especially men in the church house.
CONDEMNED TO HELL AND BEYOND.
They tried to straight stone this woman to the point she had to address it in a video.
In the video she's basically like...my husband doesn't have a problem with it and I'm just blessed I get to spread the word of God with my voice so can yall worry 'bout yo'self?
I was clicking and clicking this morning and ran across someone discussing this again and it made me squint my eyes.
Recently I had a conversation with some folks about the pastor of a church whose wife left him because of affairs and an outside newborn baby or something like that. The people who attend the church don't seem to have nainh ainh problem with his ho-ish since they still go to church with their index fingers in the air if they have to move while he's speaking. Many seem to have the whole controversy on IGNORE...a man will be a man status.
And it irked the pig ish outta me. Everybody excusing his behavior talking about they won't judge, it's God's job to pass judgement...not theirs but them same people straight slinging STONES at Erica Campbell.
Guess it's her "type" who was the devil that is trying to bring Pastor down huh?
Do you find there is a major double standard in the church about what a woman and a man can get away with without being judged by the flock?
When you're in church and have to move...do you put up your index finger? :)
