Big Shot – Brelyn Bowman
PURITY ON A PEDESTAL
Oct 22, 2015
Brelyn Bowman pledged to her father, Michael A. Freeman, the founder and pastor of the Spirit of Faith Christian Center in Maryland, that she would remain a virgin until marriage.
Brelyn, who married Timothy Bowman earlier this month, posted a photo a week ago of her dancingwith her father at the wedding. In the caption she explained why she chose to give her father the certificate.
“Dancing with my first love. I was able to present a certificate of purity to him signed by my doctor that my hymen was still intact,” she said in the post. “Also, the covenant he gave me when I was 13. When you honor God, your life will automatically honor others! I love you, daddy.”
Freeman said he had no idea his daughter was going to present him with the certificate at the wedding, Buzzfeed reported.
And while many have condemned the certificate as an “archaic” practice, others have championed Bowman for sticking to her Christian values. Bowman said on Instagram she plans to use the attention as a platform to talk about waiting for marriage.
