Andrew Caldwell can now be added to the growing list of internet sensations!
Caldwel (pictured above) became ‘internet famous’ over the past few weeks after he appeared in a viral video denouncing his homosexuality during the 2014 COGIC convention.
In the video, the 21 year old Missouri man can be seen wearing a bright yellow bow tie, proclaiming: ““I’m not gay no more. I am delivered! I don’t like mens no more. I said I like women. Women women women women!””
Caldwell told news reporters that footage from the Church of God in Christ’s 107th Holy Convocation in St. Louis was in fact reputable, and that he hasn’t made any money from his so-called “deliverance,” but many are skeptical about the authenticity of the video.
Oddly enough, a news outlet recently revealed Caldwell’s criminal past, and it wasn’t that long ago that he was arrested for fraud.

Caldwell, 21, posed for the mugshot above May 18, 2014 after he was arrested for ‘Fraudulent Insurance.’
While Caldwell’s arrest doesn’t discredit his testimony, it’s actually being added to the list of circumstances that would lead one to believe the the video is a hoax.
A Church of God in Christ spokesperson released a short statement regarding the video, saying it “does not, in any capacity, speak to all of the remarkable things that transpired” during the event.
The COGIC statement continues:
We do not in any way compromise our biblical position against same sex unions or in favor of biblical teaching on matters of sexual conduct. At the same time we expect that our clergy and laity will be civil and considerate as they speak to men and women regarding issues related to our Christian faith. We love all people, regardless of their faith or moral standards. Furthermore, the Church of God in Christ wholly condemns acts of violence against and the subjugation of any person to verbal or physical harassment on the basis of their sexual stance.(source)
Whatever the case, Caldwell’s viral ‘deliverance’ has sparked a slew of hilarious spoof videos…
