Hair Crimes May Be Caused by Demonic Weaves, Say TV Journalists Who Had Nothing Else to Cover

I’m not a hair expert. My only conversations about hair boil down to, “Please cut it short.”

WMC Action News 5 – Memphis, Tennessee

One pastor interviewed in the WMC Action News 5 report said there was nothing Christian about this theory. I breathed a sigh of relief when I heard it… until he went on to blame it on Animism or Voodoo.

Must have been a very exciting day in that newsroom.
