Man Declares He's Been 'Delivered' From Homosexuality At Christian Event In St. Louis (VIDEO)

Video footage of a young man reportedly claiming to have been "delivered" from homosexuality at the Church of God in Christ’s 107th Holy Convocation in St. Louis, Missouri is making the blogosphere rounds.

The man, who has not been identified in media reports but is reportedly 21 years old, tells the crowd, "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!"

In the clip, he goes on to note, "I would not date a man! I would not carry a purse! I would not put on make-up! I will, I will love a women."

Immediately following the speech, the pastor rewarded the man with $100, noting, "God said he's going to bless you because of your commitment. Just to prove it, He just told me to give you $100."

A note on the YouTube clip, which appears to be hosted by someone affiliated with the church, states, "A young man received deliverance from the spirit of homosexuality during the Saturday night altar call after Supt. Earl Carter preached the fire down from heaven." The video has already been viewed over 290,000 times by Tuesday afternoon.

The Huffington Post reached out to a spokesperson for Church of God in Christ’s 107th Holy Convocation for a comment about what transpired during the service but did not immediately receive a response.

Prayer is one of many controversial "cures" for homosexuality that have been touted over the centuries. In September, a man claimed that a teacher at his church forced him to have oral and anal sex in an effort to treat his homosexuality. Another man, Raymond Bell, a pastor of the Cowboy Church of Virginia, made headlines with claims that sessions involving the stroking of horses could help "cure" certain "addictions" like homosexuality.
