It was only one month ago when pastor DeVon Franklin was forced to come to the defense of his actress wife Meagan Good, after she was attacked by a Christian woman for not “covering up”.
Devon responded to the critical woman with,
“She’s not gonna cover up, she’s gonna wear what she wanna wear in the name of Jesus, amen? She’s gonna wear what she wants to wear,” said the Pastor.
Meagan remained silent during the altercation, but she recently sat down with ESSENCE where she broke her silence on the matter and explained how some Christians can be “backwards.”
“The crazy thing is how backwards some of us can be as Christians,” says Good. “Hubby and I are doing all we can to go out into the world with a God-given message in an area that many of us secretly struggle with, and some others have attempted to discredit a much needed cultural conversation and reduce it to a wardrobe choice… A choice that is and always will remain between me and God.”
“When my husband said that I’m going to ‘wear what I want to wear in the name of Jesus,’ he meant that it is between me and Jesus. While I don’t believe she had ill intent, I can’t believe God would tell someone to publicly humiliate another person. I believe if God told her to share something with me, He also would’ve given her the wisdom to do so and I don’t think her approach reflected that. But, nevertheless I have nothing but love for her. And for anyone who may disagree with me, I ask that they pray for me in love instead of slandering or attacking me. I believe that is the true essence of who God has called us all to be—lovers. I believe He can handle the rest.”
Let Meagan wear what she wants in Jesus name!
