Councilman Says God Told Him To Outlaw Saggy Pants
God wants the government to tell you what you can’t wear, according to Frank Goodman a councilman in Dadeville, Alabama.
“I prayed and asked God to show me what I should do, and the way I should go about it,” Goodman told The Daily Beast in an interview published Monday:
“What would God do? Did God go around doing this?”
The councilman added: “He would [not] show me this saggy pant—it’s one of the things He did not do. It is not in His orders to do that to gain eternal life.”
At a council meeting this month, Goodman explained how drooping denim is “disrespectful,” a bad example to children, and bars the wearer from gainful employment. He told his colleagues what he told a Daily Beast reporter: “I prayed about this. I know that God would not go around with pants down.”
