    He's 61 (my age! icon_sad.gif ) and hires a 20-year old from rentboy.com. We had this story already here in a thread, but I thought this update and different info, with pics, merited its own mention:

    Wayne Besen, executive director of Truth Wins Out, a national group that opposes the ex-gay movement, said it doesn't matter whether Rekers and Geo had a sexual relationship.

    ``Who cares? It's even creepier if they didn't have sex,'' said Besen, who grew up in Fort Lauderdale. ``If you go to Rentboy.com to have the company of a sex worker and not have sex, I think that shows a pattern of repression and delusion. That's just not normal behavior.

    ``Rekers is driving the story right now with his comical denial. He could have just as easily given someone a big tip to carry his bags, like everyone else does.''



    I concur!

    Today's Miami New Times‚ÄčThe male escort hired by anti-gay activist George Alan Rekers has told Miami New Times the Baptist minister is a homosexual who paid him to provide body rubs once a day in the nude, during their ten-day vacation in Europe.
    Rekers allegedly named his favorite maneuver the "long stroke" -- a complicated caress "across his penis, thigh... and his anus over the butt cheeks," as the escort puts it. "Rekers liked to be rubbed down there," he says.

    I agree! "Geo" wasn't a "Personal Assistant" or a "Private Secretary," he was a gay escort. Rekers is now spinning, as I predicted in previous posts, that he made contact with Geo through social contacts, not through rentboy.com. Except that's not what Geo is saying. And even if others gave Rekers the link, did he not read what was there?

    We are now in the spin phase. And the anti-gay groups with which Rekers was associated, who quoted him and used him as a credible source, used him to justify opposing gay adoption rights here in Florida, now say they barely know him, haven't heard about him in years & years. Just marvelous, isn't it? As the media has noted, just like the Soviet period, when someone became a non-person, like they never existed, their history expunged from all records.

    And it is Democrats, Obama & liberals who are like the Communists? Such hypocrisy!

    [UPDATE: The escort now says Rekers is indeed gay, and that Rekers paid him to perform daily nude body rubs during their European jaunt. "It's a situation where he's going against homosexuality when he is a homosexual," the young man told the New Times, adding that Rekers -- who repeatedly asked for a move he dubbed "The Long Stroke" -- ought to divorce himself from his many anti-gay associations.

    Rekers has a new explanation for the trip. "I deliberately spend time with sinners with the loving goal to try to help them," he said in a statement posted on Facebook.

    The Miami New Times promises more details and a profile of the escort, whom they codenamed "Lucien" but whose identity has been revealed elsewhere.]

    Not to worry, Rekers told the Miami New Times, which broke the story: He claims he learned his 20-year-old companion was a prostitute only midway through their trip, they had no intimate contact, and he hired the young man only because recent surgery means "I can't lift luggage."

    This seems highly dubious, not least because the New Times reporters spotted the retired professor pushing his baggage cart through Miami International Airport. It would be extremely difficult to stumble upon the Rentboy.com homepage, which features young well-muscled men rubbing each other's crotches on grainy video loops, and not figure out what the site means by "rent boy."
    Story continues below

    The site's pages aren't indexed by Google, either, so we'll need to take the New Times' word for it that the profile page for Rekers' escort advertised his "smooth, sweet, tight ass" and "perfectly built 8 inch cock." The young man denied that he and Rekers had sex, but he did confirm that they met via his Rentboy profile.

    With the scandal flaring in the wake of the New Times expose, Rekers published a statement on his personal website that decries the story's "misleading innuendo." He confuses libel with slander, but he doesn't deny any specific element of the story, only repeating his claim that he needed help carrying luggage and averring that family and friends will back that claim.

    Rekers, who is also a professor emeritus of neuropsychiatry at the University of South Carolina and a Baptist minister, recently testifed against gay adoption in Florida, where he resides. Raw Story flagged a particularly jarring article in which he claims that children adopted by gay couples are more likely to commit suicide.

    The retired professor has remained far less high-profile than his Family Research Council co-founder James Dobson, but he is an extremely prolific author of books like Who Am I? Lord and Growing Up Straight: What Families Should Know About Homosexuality. He has also advised members of Congress, the White House, and the Department of Health and Human Services, according to the New Times story, which is worth reading in its entirety.

    At least Reker has good taste in men. icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif
    That's about the only positive thing I have to say about it, other than knowing all his followers will probably change their "anti" stance on gayness - especially closetness - which is also a good thing.

    the guy's an asshole, who has devoted his life to take his own selfhate out on gay people to try and ruin their lives too. I have no sympathy for such a guy. I hope the media fries him good.

    Thanks, I must have missed that. And now does the Florida Attorney General have to explain the $60,000 (?) fee Rekers was paid with taxpayer money to testify about how awful and perverted gays are, that we can't be allowed to adopt children in Florida? I wonder what the status of that case will be now? A ruling was expected shortly. icon_question.gif

    More spin: after first denying that Geo was anything more than a luggage carrier, now Rekers is saying he knew the guy's a prostitute, whom he was trying to convert or something:

    http://blogs.miaminewtimes.com/riptide/2010/05/narth_responds_to_rekers_eurot.php

    Miami New Times: Yesterday, Rekers switched his PR tack and told a blogger that his strapping travel assistant doubled as a male Mary Magdalene. He took the boy to Europe, Rekers said, to show him Jesus -- with whom Rekers compared himself. The Christ wined and dined prostitutes, so why shouldn't Rekers?

    Oddly, he didn't mention ministering to the boy when he spoke to us before the news broke. In fact, a few days ago, he pooh-poohed the story in an email.

    "It is surprising to hear that the focus of your article is the trip I took to Europe in which I had simply hired [the man] to carry my luggage as a travel companion... That fact is not the least bit newsworthy."

    More about Rekers, from San Francisco's "BeyondChron":

    ...Rekers also said that Native Americans should be banned from adopting since they tend, in his words, to be mentally unstable and to abuse alcohol.

    And this is the guy our Florida Attorney General, now a candidate for Governor, paid tens of thousands of dollars to, for his testimony saying that gays are unfit to adopt, as well. I hope this is used in the gubernatorial election campaign against him.

    Hadn't seen it, thanks. The comments after the article are great. And from that piece I found another link that's great, about a speakerphone conversation Lucien/Geo had with Rekers, overheard by reporters:

    http://blogs.miaminewtimes.com/riptide/2010/05/things_rekers_said_to_lucien_w.php#

    After some cross-talk [on the speakerphone], Rekers tried to calm Lucien down: "I've been through things like this in the past --"

    Lucien cut him off: "Well I haven't! I'm 20 years old! If you've been through this, you shouldn't have gone to that website, you shouldn't have hired me -- why did you make so many choices [for me]?"


    Kinda sad, really, I feel badly for this kid, whatever his "profession."
