Andrew Caldwell, who became a viral video sensation after his famous “I’m not gay no more, I am delivered” speech at the COGIC conference last year, is in the news again. This time he was the victim of a hate crime in Florissant, Missouri.
Caldwell posted pictures to his Facebook account of the aftermath of a violent unprovoked assault in a strip mall parking lot. Two unidentified men walked up to him and punched him in the face. After the assault, the men fled in a black automobile while taunting him with anti-gay slurs. As the men drove away they shouted, “I’m not gay no more!”
Caldwell wrote: “Ever since I talked about my deliverance from the sin of homosexuality, I have been receiving threatening messages by email and social media. I fear for my life. I have been physically and verbally attacked. I feel that I will have to do whatever it takes to protect myself.”
