Meagan Good is one of the sexiest actresses in the game and is also a child of God. For some, those two don't go together, but her husband, DeVon Franklin, a pastor and film producer, is here to tell you that cleavage and Christ aren't mutually exclusive.
Proving that there's nothing like having a man who is willing to stand up for you in front of strangers — and God — Franklin clapped back at a parishioner who criticized Good for wearing revealing outfits.
The couple did a Q&A on stage at One Church LA’s Valentines Day Event to discuss love, faith, and the release of their book on celibacy before marriage, titled The Wait, when a woman in the crowd brought Good’s faith into to question saying, “You need to be born again, if you don’t have the Holy Ghost you’re not going to defeat anything!”
The woman repeatedly exclaimed, “you are beautiful,” before saying, “I was at a grocery store, and I looked at a newsstand, and I saw you, and you had your breasts showing.” The comment received some jeers from the crowd but the both Good and Franklin encouraged her to continue. The tone changed when the woman said, “You need to make sure what you say and what you do match up, you understand? So we’re going to cover up, right?”
It was at this moment that Franklin stepped in to defend his wife. “No, that is not what we’re here for, she is not going to cover up. She’s going to wear what she wants to wear, in the name of Jesus." As the crowd erupted in raucous "Amens," he continued: “God bless you, we love you. I love you dearly, but she has been as Christian as she has been that she is right now when she has worn whatever God has wanted her to wear, so we ain’t doing that!” He then turned to his wife and said, “I love you,” and gave her several kisses. Franklin then turned to the crowd once again, exclaiming excitedly, “Shoot, ya’ll about to see a whole ‘nother DeVon ya’ll ain’t seen.”
