antoine_dodsonInternet celebrity Antoine Dodson has reportedly been “lifted” from homosexuality.  In a series of tweets and postings on Facebook, Dodson denounced his sexuality and saying he wants “a wife and family, I want to multiply and raise and love my family that I create.”  In the same post, Dodson, who called himself a “True Hebrew Israelite descendant of Judah,” urges us to “be delivered from the wickedness of the world and live the way we should.”

In an interview with Alicia Menendez on HuffPost Live, Dodson said, “If you really want to change your life, and just get rid of it, then you can. And that’s what I’m doing. I’m not saying I don’t have the memories of my past, because I do, and I see it everyday in my mind. But I’m trying to move away from that and become a better person. That’s all.”

Dodson agrees that life changes are a result of maturity and growing older.  He wants his life to be an example for others.  He said, “ I want people to see my past… I want them to see me and see what I was delivered from.”

Since sharing his testimony with the world, Dodson has garnered a great deal of attention.  While support has been strong, some are dumbfounded or shocked by the admission and, like Dlisted, question whether this is a hoax.

Do you believe you can pray the gay away? Do you think this is a hoax (and a ploy for media attention)? Or could Antoine Dodson be genuine in sharing his newfound faith?
