A 40-year-old American pastor was criticized by a member of his congregation over his choice of church attire. Parishioners accuse South Dakota pastor of wearing tight jeans, calling it ‘morally wrong” Daily Star report.
The incident happened when Pastor Adam Weber last month received a letter from a member of his congregation calling his attire “offensive” and “disgusting.” The letter also stressed that Mr Weber needed to dress “more discreetly” as “a representative of Jesus Christ” and use common sense before wearing tight jeans to preach.
“As Head Pastor, do you really think it is appropriate to wear tight jeans to preach?” Where is your common sense? This is an insult; You are the representative of Jesus Christ. Sure, you can dress professionally and discreetly. You’re a role model for loud shouting…This sounds like you’re intentionally dressing up sexy. Disgusting for a pastor,” the letter read.
Reacting to that, the shocked pastor shared a photo of the letter on Instagram, with the lengthy caption: “I received this (anonymous) letter yesterday in the mail. From a Christian Oh! You know it would be fun to be there isn’t a name I don’t often get letters like this 99% of the letters and texts I get are great However, it’s easy to focus on this one, and… get tired of it, at everyone, especially Christians, at church, at Jesus, this is not must be Jesus.”

He said that although he was initially hurt by the criticism, he shared the letter on social media to encourage people not to “walk away” from the church.
His Instagram post received many comments, many of which criticized the author of the letter and defended the pastor. One user wrote: “Here’s your cue to wear thinner jeans.” Another commented: “So what they’re saying is… you look great in skinny jeans? Honestly, not many men can wear that so I’ll call. it’s a miracle and glorifies God.”
Despite the criticism, the pastor has no plans to change his wardrobe anytime soon. “I also think I’ll continue to wear skinny jeans. Even if they’re… sexy?” Pastor commented in his post.
