Despite member’s criticism, pastor will keep wearing skinny jeans

A pastor is keeping his job by the seat of his pants. Pastor Adam Weber of Embrace Church said he won’t stop preaching in his skinny jeans despite being recently rebuked by a Christian for wearing the “offensive” pants that make him look like he’s “trying on purpose to be sexy” at his pulpit.

“As head pastor, do you really think it is appropriate to wear skinny leg jeans to preach?” a member of his church wrote. “Since when do men wear skinny-leg jeans? Where is your common sense? This is an outrage! You are a representative of Jesus Christ!”

Uniqlo, a Japanese designer, manufacturer and retailer, explains on its website that “skinny jeans usually have a snug fit between the legs, and they end in a small leg opening from 9 to 20 in circumference.”

In recent years some conservative pastors have lashed out at pastors wearing skinny jeans, saying it is effeminate. But there’s also a trend among even some older pastors to wear tight clothing to emphasize their physique and to look younger. The jeans most often cause the male genitals to bulge out profusely and that aspect is promoted in advertising.

“This isn’t Jesus, though,” he wrote to members of his South Dakota church. “So instead of walking away from Jesus, I’ll let it bring me closer to Jesus. I’ve never sent a letter like this. But I have written them many times in my mind (probably even over something really foolish like a pastor’s jeans). I need Jesus just as much as the person who sent this does.


“Also, I think I’ll keep wearing my skinny jeans. Even if they’re … sexy? I genuinely have no ill will toward the person. I only hope good comes their way. I know when I’m hurting, I think/say/do hurtful things. If you would please pray for them. That God would shower them with His love, grace and kindness today. Thanks, friends.”
