Hide your kids! Hide your…sexuality?
He made headlines with his sassy reporting on neighborhood crimes, but Antoine Dodson is singing a different tune today. The YouTube phenom recently announced on Facebook that he is “no longer into homosexuality” since joining the Hebrew Israelite religion. As part of his new beliefs, Dodson vows to find a wife and start a family. “I could care less about the fame and fortune, I’m giving all that up to know the true history of the bible,” he says. “I don’t need a Mercedes Benz, I don’t need a big house in Beverly Hills all I need is the Most High and my family (Israel). I have been awaken by the great and so should you. Let’s be delivered from the wickedness of the world and live the way we should.”
Antoine is also using his social media influence to denounce anything materialistic, including celebrities and the Hollywood lifestyle he was once accustomed to. In an interview with HuffPost Live, the “reformed sinner” adamantly denies praying the gay away.
“It’s not praying the gay away because it can be lifted. 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.”
