Meagan Good's BET Awards Dress
Right. I am honestly quite sick and tired of people abusing the Biblical "Do not Judge". It has become synonymous with keep quiet and just watch everyone doing whatever they want, however they want, whenever. After all, it's their lives so to hell with rules, regulations, guidelines, morals and anything really that serves to make human beings a sane race. God forbid you should point out that someone has done or said something inappropriate or just downright wrong. You will be bombarded with "who are you to judge?", "are you perfect?", "leave them alone", "it's their life" and a whole barrage of attacks on your person. Why doesn't the world just become one big melee of screaming banshees yeah? (Actually, that’s where we are, more or less!)
No one ever bothers to point out the verses in the same Bible (Proverbs 27:17, Matthew 18:15-17, James 5:16 etc.) that DO actually say we should look out for each other and correct each other, not out of maliciousness, but for our own good.
Anyway, I’m not a preacher and not here to preach so let’s talk a bit about the dress Meagan Good wore to the BET Awards to present the Gospel Award. Below is the controversial dress.
Now if Rihanna or Miley Cyrus or even some video vixen had worn this, no one would have batted an eyelid. If Meagan wasn’t a pastor’s wife SHE still could have worn it and no one would have had anything to say. But come on Meagan, you are now a pastor’s wife and surely, surely you understand that that position comes with a little more responsibility. I’m not saying pastor’s wives or Christians for that matter can’t dress sexy. Sexy is good. Sexy can be done. That dress though is not sexy. It’s just plain tacky.
Now I’m not with the crew that’s attacking her person and talking about her past blah blah blah. I don’t even think wearing that dress makes her any less of a Christian. I just hope someone she trusts and respects will sit her down and point out why, as a pastor’s wife, she needs to think twice before donning any old ensemble. Judging from her response on Twitter, she obviously doesn't understand why people are fussing and seems thinks people are just hating (and yes, haters are many). Meagan is pretty. She can still be very sexy but respectable. It’s not just about her anymore. She needs to realise everything she does from now on will reflect on her pastor husband. I just hope she realises that dress was a bad choice.
That is all.
