    George Rekers, Christian Right Leader, Denies Gay Prostitution Allegation

    Larry Craig denied he was a homosexual too, after getting caught. It made for a lot of hilarity too.

    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."
    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.

    Now here is the hilarious part. Just who is Rekkers?:

    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."
    Jeez, who would have thunk it? [/sarcasm]

    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.

    Article is here.

    And here is the New Times story that started it all
    .

    I think Mr. Rekkers has been butt****ed in more ways than one.

    Once again it's proven, people that work so hard to demonize something, are so often self loathers, and engage in that very activity.

    If he was my leader, you'd think I'd have heard his name somewhere.



    I'm more partial to Billy Graham and Dr. Dobson myself.

    The Reverend sits on the same board as Dobson, and is a leading light in anti-gay therapy, ironically providing evidence of it's lack of efficacy.

    It seems these men try to mask their homosexuality by violently condemning it. Because they are homosexuals it is ingrained in their insecure mind that others must suspect the truth. So acting out of insecurity they go and act strongly against homosexuality. It's all fueled by their insecurities, it doesn't really surprise me.

    Pretty much this. I think it probably creates a feedback loop. These guys grow up being told and believing that being gay is an abomination. When they start to notice these feelings in themselves, they are disgusted by their own impulses. This leads to a stronger outward hatred of homosexuals which leads to more self-hatred and so on.

    Must be a sad life to live.

    I have no particular opinion on whether homosexuality is curable through therapy. Not my field. I've heard evidence presented by both sides, for and against, but I reserve judgement at this point.

    One more thing on this, and I think I'll be done.

    Cases like this draw a lot of publicity because revelations of hypocrisy always sell newspapers (and the higher-tech equivalents).

    What is a shame is that many thousands of ministers work faithfully for what they believe, and the people they care about, day after day and year after year, never seeking the spotlight and going largely unnoticed by those who like to revel in these hypocrisy stories.

    Maybe he was drunk, that seems to be the most common excuse.

    He did not have sexual relations with that rent boy.
