Andrew Caldwell: An Attention Whore Who Cannot Accept That His 15 Minutes Of Fame Is All Gone!

Share

While it’s never my intention to ever use my cyber platform to attack anyone, in this case I must say that I might be greatly misunderstood as I express my true feelings on what I feel amounts to nothing more than a farce.

So when I a link to a story was shared with me that showed the infamous Andrew Caldwell of the “I’m Not Gay No More” viral video fame claiming that he wasn’t delivered completely and that God should have delivered him more, I felt that it was my duty to speak up on this foolishness.

When that video of Andrew Caldwell hit the internet I immediately covered the phenomenon on a live podcast episode featuring the very wise Pastor Damon Richardson who is based out of  the Atlanta Georgia area.

Well needless to say that because of the paralyzing effect Mr. Caldwell’s proclamations caused in cyberspace, it afforded our show to gain maximum exposure because of the truth shared based on Biblical fact so excellently articulated by Brother Damon and several wonderful guests which in turn had many in the media reach out to us for our opinions on the subject.

One such media entity was writer Sam Judah of the BBC who called me and documented my feelings in his article that touched on homosexuality in the Black Church.

This in turn got the attention of Mr. Caldwell himself and lead him to call me personally to inquire if I would be interested in interviewing him.

Of course I did and while I tried to get a feel of where he wanted to go with it and right about when he wanted to do it he took the conversation off into different areas that made it appear that he was caught up in his temporary stardom and not into setting up a time when we can have some meaningful dialogue.

In this video you will hear me explain why I felt that his spirited comical display at the 2014 COGIC Convention in St. Louis was an attention grabbing antic that he never figured would have gone viral, but as a narcissist, got an intoxicating dose of the spotlight that he simply couldn’t let go once experienced.

Here is the link to the 3 hour discussion that I referred to with Pastor Damon Richardson on this very topic:

    Not only as a gay man, but as a person overall, Lance, I wanted to thank you greatly for an insightful, fair, concise and enriching take on the subject of one Mr. Andrew Caldwell. As always, you present your opinion(s) with a forthright vice, dignity and class. For that, I will always commend you. I recall when Mr. Caldwell came onto the scene, and I listened to an interview with him and his roommate, John (primarily), via PimpPreacer.com, that was posted here on YouTube, shortly after viewing one of the many post of him professing his deliverance from homosexuality. Personally, I will always be an advocate for anyone who craves peace of mind, especially (and even) for those who are like myself, who truly believe that changing their sexuality will provide them solace and peace. (e.g., Antoine “Hide your kids, hide your wife” Dodson, a “former” gay man and former Internet sensation, who also recanted his sexuality) Nonetheless, my mind saunters to an old Shakespearian adage from “Hamlet”: “To thine own self be true.” This recent information about Mr. Caldwell’s admittance that he’s still struggling with his tug of war sexually is no surprise, which makes me far more concerned for his well being now that I’ve listened to your broadcast, Lance. All and all, my hope is that Mr. Caldwell realizes how ephemeral moments under the spotlight is, if that is the case, and that he isn’t alone in the battle of gaining a place of acceptance, that his concerns and fears are understood, acknowledged and shared. Thank you for this post, Lance. You have a new subscriber. I don’t know why it took me so long. Thumbs up.

    Hey Lance,,I had no idea this character was still seeking the spot-lite after his viral “testimony”..that was back in 2014…come on now it’s 2015. in all honesty I forget all about him. Lance you presented this with such class and tact. Keep up the good work. When I get a chance, I wanna call you and chop up some good game. I love your energy it’s ssoooo fun and laid-back.
