Oregon Church Bans Overweight People from Their Worship Team

See "Church Apologizes, Asks Forgiveness for Banning Fat People from Worship Team."

This is another example of the non-Jesus, Performance-Driven Church. In Performance-Driven churches appearance is more important than God's presence. (The significance of "the stage," the ambiance, the mood, etc. etc.)

How absurd to think God won't show up unless we shed those extra pounds and look good. And by the word "good" here is meant, according to current cultural valuations. Because "looking good" varies. My "looking good" in the early 70s meant paisley bell bottoms. 

(Thanks, Lora, for the heads-up on this.)
