Alabama politician claims he was contacted by God. God told him to outlaw saggy pants

An official in Alabama has said he is doing God’s work - by waging war on low trousers.

Frank Goodman, a councilman in Dadeville, has proposed banning trousers that have fallen below the waist.

Goodman told The Daily Beast:

I prayed and asked God to show me what I should do, and the way I should go about it.

What would God do? Did God go around doing this?

He would [not] show me this saggy pant—it’s one of the things He did not do. It is not in His orders to do that to gain eternal life.

Goodman has argued at a previous council meeting that low trousers are disrespectful and prevent gainful employment.

At the next council meeting he will introduce legislation to give police officers the right to apprehend those with low trousers and distribute tickets.

Thank God for that.
