Rabidly Anti-Gay Activist Caught With ‘Rentboy’ Male Prostitute
May 5, 2010
(ChattahBox)—-Oh look, yet another evangelical Christian homophobe may actually be a hypocritical closeted gay man. I am shocked, just shocked! Well, not too much. And in this instance, the anti-gay activist in question, is George Alan Rekers, a particularly loathsome co-founder along with James Dobson, of the radical Christian right-wing group Family Research Council. And he is a board member of NARTH, a group that claims being gay is a “changeable condition.” Rekers has been spewing damaging lies and propaganda about homosexuality for decades, claiming being gay is a mental disease which can be cured, while churning out fraudulent articles on the dangers of homosexuality under the guise of phony medical research. So, it came as a bit of a surprise to the Miami New Times, when Rekers was discovered at the airport returning from a European trip, with a 20-year-old male prostitute called Lucien, hired from Rentboy.com.
The New Times deliciously describes the airport encounter:
“On April 13, the “rent boy” (whom we’ll call Lucien) 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.”
When asked to explain, Rekers claims he hurt his back and needed a luggage boy on his trip. But New Times points out that Rekers was seen at the airport carrying his own luggage. Apparently his back must have healed during his European sojourn to London and Madrid.
Rekers, who is a Baptist Minister, told the blog, Joe my God, that he also purposely seeks out young homosexuals to “cure” them with Christianity, the same way that Jesus spent time with sinners:
“My hero is Jesus Christ who loves even the culturally despised people, including sexual sinners and prostitutes. Like Jesus Christ, I deliberately spend time with sinners with the loving goal to try to help them.”
According to Rekers, he is not gay, but he just likes to surf online gay sex sites to find young homosexuals to cure. And he claims he shared a hotel room with Lucien to lecture him on the evils of gay sex:
“If you talk with my travel assistant that the story called “Lucien,” you will find I spent a great deal of time sharing scientific information on the desirability of abandoning homosexual intercourse, and I shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ with him in great detail.”
The Miami Times notes that Rekers didn’t deny finding Lucien on the Rentboy site, “which features homepage images of men in bondage and grainy videos of crotch-rubbing twinks.” And Lucien’s personal profile is even more explicit:
“The pictures on the Rentboy.com profile show a shirtless young man with delicate features, guileless eyes, and sun-kissed, hairless skin. The profile touts his “smooth, sweet, tight ass” and “perfectly built 8 inch cock (uncut)” and explains he is “sensual,” “wild,” and “up for anything”‘
But Rekers ridiculously claims that he had no idea his luggage boy was a prostitute. “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.”‘
Both Rekers and Lucien deny they had sex. And on a creepy note, Rekers is apparently fond of taking in foster boys and he even adopted a 16-year-old boy four-years ago, which would now make him the same age as Lucien the luggage boy/travel assistant/Rentboy prostitute.
Lucien’s profile, along with photos, has been discovered and copied from Rentboy, by a few enterprising bloggers, but it has since been removed from the website. He calls himself Geo and he is apparently very talented. His talents include, “Modeling, Go-Go Dancing, Stripping, Massage, Travel Companion, Tour Guide and Interpreter.” He also lists various fetishes: Vanilla, Leather, Anal, Oral, Shaving, Spanking, Role Playing, Kissing, Toys and Feet.
The willowy blond Geo promises to “do anything you say as long as you ask.” What exactly did the odious “I’m not gay” Rekers ask of him, besides carrying his luggage?
