Larry Craig denied he was a homosexual too, after getting caught. It made for a lot of hilarity too.
Rekkers, of course, is saying that he is being slandered, but there is the photo of him and his "boy" getting off the plane together.According to the New Times story, by Penn Bullock and Brandon K. Thorp, Rekers was spotted returning from a ten-day trip to Europe with a young man identified as Lucien, who he allegedly met on a gay website called Rentboy.com. On that site, Lucien appeared shirtless, and his physical attributes were described in detail; he was identified as "HIV and Disease FREE," offered "a sensual meet or companionship" and said he will "do anything you say as long as you ask."
Now here is the hilarious part. Just who is Rekkers?:
Jeez, who would have thunk it? [/sarcasm]You might not know Rekers, but he has long played a prominent role behind the scenes in the social conservative movement: A member of the founding board of the conservative Family Research Council, Rekers has authored books on how to ensure that children grow up straight.
A Baptist minister and former research fellow at Harvard University, Rekers has testified against gay adoptions and is on the board of National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality, which "upholds the rights of individuals with unwanted homosexual attraction to receive effective psychological care."
It's the same old story, time and time again.
1) Paragon of virtue wants to tell us all how we should live our lives.
2) Paragon of virtue gets caught in a "gay" moment.
3) Paragon of virtue denies he is gay.
You know, when you are really, really repressed, to the point that you talk about other people being scum bags, and then you get caught doing the exact same thing, that says a lot about you.
Sex, whether straight or gay, is not dirty. But let's give Mr. Rekkers the benefit of the doubt, and just say it is, for argument's sake. When two lovers are done having sex, they take a bath, and everything washes right off, and they are happy. In Mr. Rekker's case, he can scrub himself all he wants to, and he will still be filthy. Why? Because his filthiness towards others is all in his own mind, and that kind of hypocritical thinking never washes off. Mr. Rekker, along with his ilk, will always be filthy.

And here is the New Times story that started it all.
I think Mr. Rekkers has been butt****ed in more ways than one.
