Kenyan Church Demands Panty-less Congregation (We're Hopin' It's Not a Sex Cult)

Last time we checked, when you head off to church, it's usually best to be more covered. Usually.

But not so in Kenya at Reverend Njohi’s place of worship! Here at the Lord’s Propeller Redemption Church just east of Nairobi, women are forbidden to wear underwear (or bras!) during service.

Why you ask?

Women’s underwear prevents us from feeling close with God. Duh. Reverend Njohi claims that his church attendees must feel “free in body and spirit to recieve Christ." This isn’t optional either — women will face “grave consequences” (whatever that means) if they don’t adhere.

Mothers have also been instructed to check their daughters to make sure they’re going commando for services. Men, on the other hand, are more than welcome to wear underwear.

So yeah, this is pretty sketchy. And as much as we’d like to believe that underwire prevents us from gabbing with Jesus, history shows us that strict religious sanctions often breed or obscure more sinister intentions. Like the cult Ordo Templi Orientis for example, founded by British deviant Aleister Crowley in 1875 who crowned himself "the Great Beast 666." The cult — which still lives on in chapters all over the damn country from Alaska to Florida — still celebrates Crowley's f*ck it attitude with the Law of Thelema:

Do what thou wilt

In addition to sadomasochistic sex rumors (whips and chains and leather oh my!) there's also the rumored use of hard drugs — all in the name of "the infinitely extended, all-pervading Space-Time Continuum; and the atomic, individually expressed Principle of Life and Wisdom." Riiiiiight.

Then there's the 'ol Catholic Church who've gotten away with sexually abusing younger members for decades at a time. Sometimes it seems like a straight up religious sex abuse epidemic people!

We're not saying this is neccessarily the case, but it sure leaves a bad taste in our mouth. (And that ain't the communion wine.) So let’s keep our eyes on Reverend Njohi... we have a creeping suspician something is amiss.
