The Huffington Post reports that George Alan Rekers, co-founder of the notoriously anti-gay Religious Right organization "Family Research Council," recently returned from a 10-day European vacation with a 20-year-old male escort he hired on a website called Rentboy.com. The escort claims that Rekers is in fact gay, and asked the escort repeatedly to perform something he called "The Long Stroke," a special . . . well, let’s just call it a form of meretricious services. The Rekers scandal was also featured on a highly amusing clip from last night’s Colbert Report.
Rekers claims that he hired the prostitute because he "can’t lift luggage." Why hire a gay escort to serve as a valet, you might ask? Rekers explained in a Facebook posting that "I deliberately spend time with sinners with the loving goal to try to help them."
Bravo, Mr. Rekers, for hating the sin and really loving the sinner.
