Anal, Oral, and Shaving for Jesus
One thing is not in dispute: George Allen Rekers is a guy who spends a lot of time thinking about guys fucking guys. In 1983, he and James Dobson were co-founders of the Family Research Council, a groups whose mission statement cites to Ward and June Cleaver’s relationship.
Rekers is now an officer of the National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH). Notwithstanding the conclusions of professional and scientific groups such as the American Psychological association, NARTH claims that homosexuality is a mental disorder that may be cured with therapy. He has testified against gay adoption in both Arkansas and Florida, though judges in both cases have deemed his testimony to be unreliable. To make a long story short, he’s a Christianist bigot specializing in homosexuality. Oh; did I mention he’s a minister? He’s a minister.
George Allen Rekers recently took a trip overseas. Upon returning, he was spotted in the Miami airport in the company of a gentleman named Geo. Rekers, who is recovering from surgery, claims that he hired Geo to carry his luggage. That wouldn’t be terribly controversial if Geo were a personal assistant or a skycap. However, Geo’s services can only be obtained via rentboys.com, a site where he advertises that his foreskin is uncut and his cock is large. Geo’s specialties (in addition to carrying baggage, one presumes) are “anal, oral, shaving, spanking, kissing, toys, and feet” and his talents include “modeling, go-go dancing, stripping, massage.”
Rekers claims that he spent his alone time with Geo “sharing scientific information on the desirability of abandoning homosexual intercourse.” Why he had to transport Geo’s large, uncut cock to Rome to share this information is beyond me. Unless, of course, “sharing scientific information” is a flimsy excuse for a European gay sex romp (or as PZ Myers speculates “sharing scientific information” is a euphamism for “gay sex romp”, but let’s not split hairs here.) A word to the wise, Reverend Rekers, the best way to share scientific information is via papers and lectures, not keeping a whore on retainer.
If you’re keeping score, feel free to add Rekers to Larry Craig, Terry Dolan, Roy Cohn, Mark Foley, Ed Schrock, Roy Ashburn, Jim West, Glenn Murphy, and fellow man of the cloth Ted Haggard in the list of homophobes who get caught with their pants down in gay bars and airport bathrooms.
