Hypocrite of the Day - HUGE Hypocrite - George Alan Rekers

George Alan Rekers, a Baptist minister who is a leader of the anti-gay movement, was caught in a Miami airport with a male escort whose online profile at Rentboy.com advertises his “smooth, sweet, tight ass.” It appears that Rekers, who founded the Family Research Council with James Dobson, took the escort on a 10-day trip to Europe. Reached for comment, Rekers said, "I had surgery, and I can't lift luggage. That's why I hired him." (People who saw Rekers at the airport note that Rekers was carrying luggage when he and the escort returned to the United States.) Reached for comment, that escort did not want to disparage his client but made it clear that they met on Rentboy.com.

From Miami Times:

"While he keeps a low public profile, his fingerprints are on almost every anti-gay effort to demean and dehumanize LGBT people," says Wayne Besen, a gay rights advocate in New York City and the executive director of Truth Wins Out, which investigates the anti-gay movement. "His work is ubiquitously cited by lobby groups that work to deny equality to LGBT Americans. Rekers has caused a great deal of harm to gay and lesbian individuals."

Rekers is a board member of the National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH), an organization that systematically attempts to turn gay people straight. And the Huffington Post recently singled out Rekers as a member of the American College of Pediatricians — an official-sounding outfit in Gainesville that purveys lurid, youth-directed literature accusing gays of en masse coprophilia.
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." (Medical problems didn't stop him from pushing the tottering baggage cart through MIA.)


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 they met on Rentboy.


In his interview with New Times, Lucien didn't want to impugn his client, but he made it clear they met through Rentboy.com, which is the only website on which he advertises his services. Neither Google nor any other search engine picks up individual Rentboy.com profiles, any more than they pick up individual profiles on eHarmony or Match.com. You cannot just happen upon one.
