Meagan Good Confronts Her Christian Critics

By  |  20 Comments

What makes a woman desire to wear plunging low cut tops and dresses rather than a tee shirt and pants?  Most women would admit that the way they dress is in direct relation to (1) the way they feel, and/or (2) the function they have to attend.  If they feel sexy they might for example wear an outfit that coincides with attraction and sensuality.

On the other hand if they are – going to the mall, grocery store, etc., they might dress a little more comfortable – but then again, it all depends on the woman.  Different women like different things.  Would you agree?

So this week Megan Good, who constantly receives heat from critics about her over the top sensual style of dressing sat down with Wendy Williams to talk about her new movie and some other stuff.

When Wendy Williams asked Megan how she responds to critics about her sexy red carpet dress choices, Megan responded with:

Unfortunately a lot of the backlash has come from the Christian community and there’s no me and them; there’s only us. We’re all a part of the same community and at the end of the day, for me, I grew up in this business as a little girl, I’ve been walking the red carpet since I was 13, so what I may view as appropriate or OK, someone else may feel differently and I think that’s OK. We’re all different.”

Megan also receives backlash about her husband – DeVon Franklin, a preacher for allowing her to wear the spicy dresses. But overall, they seem to be a happy couple with a lot of interesting projects in their lives.  When asked if she was ready to bring a baby into her life – Megan said that she is still enjoying her husband – although she admitted that her mother would welcome a grand baby any time.

    He is her covering and if he has no problem it’s nobody’s business. Church folks love to judge.

      1Thess 4:8 He that despiseth, despiseth not man but God…. For all of you people that keep saying that we Christians judge, need to do some studying of The Word a lot more. This world is in HORRIBLE shape because no one wants to hear the TRUTH. Gal 4:16 Paul said, Am I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth? Spreading the Word is a Christians responsibility regardless of the feedback we get. Give the sinners the word without aggression and maybe they will be more receptive, if not, keep yourself in a position where God will hear your prayers and pray for them. Their conscience may be seared! It is obvious that she does not understand neither knows the Word of God, and neither does he to allow her to dress this way. What is modest about that dress? We are to stand out differently from the world so someone needs to explain it to them both. Holy and Reverend is Gods’ name not any man on earth to put himself on the same level with God! Psalms 111:9.

    Meagan do not try to explain who you are. This is the year “2013” and I am quite sure the way you look, act and are is the way your husband wants you.

    Being a wife of a Minister can be extremely hard. I have not had the experience but I see how they have treated some in my past.

    Tell them to get on your husband and leave you alone.

    You are a Beautiful Lady and what you are and do is you and your husbands business and not all the Bitties that want to get in your business.

    They do not have to look at you and they do have the option of moving their membership, but when they do they will find something else wrong. These people need to look within and they will find the

      Toni it is obvious that you need to go back and read the Word again. Instead of agreeing with her you should try to tell her the truth and stop going along to get along!! How can people ever change with people like you afraid to tell the truth? What are you, an undercover Christian? I pray you will get a better understanding of Gods’ Word also!

    Megan and Devon,

    Keep your head up and striving for excellence as a Christian servant/leader your mission is bigger than the four walls of the church. Imagine if Christians were encouraged to develop their talents and abilities to impact business, finance, education and health we could really move the world like Joseph and Daniel in the Bible and especially Jesus. Wow, Jesus who actually spent little time in church and more time impacting every area of society…hmm maybe that’s why he called us to him, to stop talking so much and start working as it says in Isaiah 58. Peace and Blessings stay strong and Love each other harder every day!

    What amazes me is the number of women that are defending and supporting Megan’s position on her code of dress. I wonder what these same lame ass, double standard, ignorant as women would say if their pastors wife graced the sanctuary on Sunday morning in this same manner? Please let me answer you! They would wear her OUT!!!! All of these people like Donna’s dumb ass coming up with that erroneous scripture she quoted, are saying that church folks judge people more than folk that don’t go is a lie! It’s just that she resents righteous judgement and order! I am sure theses people never protest band uniforms, football uniforms, basketball uniforms. No one says that Megan has to look like a Nun but we see too many non Christian people who dress wonderfully and never show the baby feeders!

      SHE’S NOT DOING IT IN THE SANCTUARY. ITS BEING DONE IN THE APPROPRIATE ENVIRONMENT.LIKE YOU SAID UNIFORM…EVERY ARENA HAS A UNIFORM…AND SHE WAS IN THE ARENA WHERE THAT IS ALLOWED. THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS A FIRST LADY WHEN IT COME TO THE BIBLE. THAT’S SOMETHING MEN HAVE INSTITUTED. SO SHE’S OKAY. NOW TELL ALL THOSE WITH THE PLATFORM SHOES WHERE YOU ATTEND THAT THEY CAN’T WEAR THEM…AND I BET YOUR PLACE OF WORSHIP WILL BE EMPTY…WHORES COME IN ALL SHAPES AND SIZES…AND THEY WHERE ALL TYPES OF CLOTHING…WHETHER MODEST (WHICH NOBODY IN THE CHURCH AS ITS CALLED WEARS) OR REVEALING. IF SHE WAS AT A BEACH IN A BATHING SUIT…WOULD YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH IT….SAY IT WITH ME….NOPE!!!#ARENAGEAR

    God convicts, chastises and redeems. Her relationship with God is her relationship. Legalism in church’s is the one of the reasons the unchurched is turned off. If it’s not clear in the Bible then the conviction will come from the Holy Spirit so everybody else should shut up.

    God does NOT condemn so why do Christians?

    Christian or not, when people decide that Megan is setting a “Good” example as a role model, they need their head examined, lol! What can one say, when Mrs. Obama stated that Beyonce is a good role model as well and admires her. I wonder if she would see it the same way if her girls were on the stage, half dressed, and gyrating all over the place. Megan is doing what many in society has deemed fit, “Sex Sells.” It is such drivel, when women state how far they’ve come, how high their expectations, and love of self are, then bare their body parts for the world to see. It isn’t just about Christianity it is a topic of plain decency. Which obviously is lacking. Being a preacher’s wife just makes it even more laughable. I’m not saying she should dress like a Nun, but cover it up already, smh!

    Megan is a gorgeous women, and she does not need to show all of her
    wares. Just a little will do. It leaves more to the imagination for
    all who admire her. As a pastor wife, she should show a sense of
    decorum. In the bible it says ” there is a time and place for everything”, and running around in PUBLIC with your breast out in FULL VIEW is not fitting.

    Just a little bit of SKIN will due you just fine girl….

    Peace

    Man George you make absolutely no sense at all and you only wrote one sentence.
    “God does not condemn..”
    Really,? So in other words, no one gets sent to hell?
    God takes EVERYBODY into heaven?
    Of course some are condemned to the eternal fire, where they belong, I’m sure. But the GOod News is you don’t have to continue to speak for God. He does that job for himself. All you have to do is read his word. Until then, just speak for yourself.

    Just reading the comments from women it is sad but most black women are tramps and have been trampled on. They have no sense of value in themselves so they can’t see the value in this preacher’s wife covering up a bit more.
    I feel sorry for them, defending that dress. there’s nothing to defend. It was a poor choice. Period.

    My opinion is that as a preachers wife she really needs to tone down her dressing. I like a lot but I am not accepting the way she dress. I am very surprise that her husband have no say so.

    1st its safe to say that the women in here jumping on this beautiful young woman are 1 single, lonely, cant find a date and the closest they come to having a husband is a pillow and a virbator or 2 overweight fugly ass weave wearing hypocrites who screw and suck off dudes on Saturday night and show up at church on Sunday to cleanse their souls or 3 single mothers with a bunch of out of wedlock kids and not one baby daddy stuck around for them or the kids. Dont hate on Meghan because she’s pretty, with a nice slim figure and MARRIED to a man who loves her. As long as her husband doesnt have a problem with how she dresses its not a problem. Get a life ladies!

      You are just plain ignorant and know nothing about black women who have learned to respect themselves! I pray you will take time to study and learn the ways of The Lord. Ignorance is the reason we have so much evil / wickedness in the world! Keep living and you will wish you had taken the time out to obey the Word of God. In the meantime Devon I pray for you and others like you to one day learn about how beautiful it is to be a Christian!
