Did Jesus Rent Boys?


I don't remember seeing anything in The Bible about that. But maybe George Alan Rekers did, since he knows more about The Bible.

For decades, George Alan Rekers has been a general in the culture wars, though his work has often been behind the scenes. In 1983, he and James Dobson, America's best-known homophobe, formed the Family Research Council, a D.C.-based, rabidly Christian, and vehemently anti-gay lobbying group that has become a standard-bearer of the nation's extreme right wing.

He has also influenced American politics, serving in advisory roles with Congress, the White House, and the Department of Health and Human Services and testifying as a state's witness in favor of Florida's gay adoption ban.

Rekers has published papers and books by the hundreds, with titles like Who Am I? Lord and Growing Up Straight: What Families Should Know About Homosexuality.

Sounds like a man with a strong moral compass and an eternal burning flame for Jesus.

On April 13, the "rent boy" arrived at Miami International Airport on Iberian Airlines Flight 6123, after a ten-day, fully subsidized trip to Europe. He was soon followed out of customs by an old man with an atavistic mustache and a desperate blond comb-over, pushing an overburdened baggage cart.

That man was George Alan Rekers, of North Miami — the callboy's client and, as it happens, one of America's most prominent anti-gay activists. Rekers, a Baptist minister who is a leading scholar for the Christian right, left the terminal with his gay escort, looking a bit discomfited when a picture of the two was snapped with a hot-pink digital camera.

Stunning. I am just shocked that a right wing anti-gay nut was blowing his nut into a male prostitute for 10 days.

Reached by New Times before a trip to Bermuda, Rekers said he learned Lucien was a prostitute only midway through their vacation. "I had surgery," Rekers said, "and I can't lift luggage. That's why I hired him."

Seriously. I thought "rent boy" literally meant I could rent a boy to help me with luggage. It was just a coincidence that his anus was like a hot tub suction hole. He didn't even tell me until I was inside him.

Yet Rekers wouldn't deny he met his slender, blond escort at Rentboy.com — which features homepage images of men in bondage and grainy videos of crotch-rubbing twinks — and Lucien confirmed it.

To be fair, I think most people assume a guy rubbing his cock on a webpage full of men in leather meant he was good at carrying luggage.

From that photo, I had him pegged as a pedophile.

Pretty much the only way you could hate something to the point where you have to devote your incalculable time to it.

I mean, just imagine the kind of person who hates dudes fucking SO MUCH that he starts a lobbying group on it?
