Church Bans Women From Wearing Trousers

A Nigerian Church pastor has banned women members from wearing trousers.

Pastor Daniel Olukoya of the Mountain of Fire Ministries church says he will not tolerate women who wear trousers and do not cover their hair at his church. He has pretty much excommunicated anyone who does not follow this directive.

Olukoya says he is disgusted by the dressing of women and he wants them to get into line or get kicked out. He has directed all the regional congregations of his church to enforce this directive.

This kind of thing is not uncommon in African churches and in Zimbabwe we have examples of the Masowe churches where such strict measures are in place.

Of course women’s rights activists will cry foul over this but our real question is, if the regime is that repressive why are these women going there still?
