Anti-gay activist is outed after hiring male escort

In yet another case of religious hypocrisy, Dr. George Rekers, an outspoken anti-gay activist, was seen with a gay escort that he hired to accompany him on a vacation, according to the alternative weekly newspaper Miami NewTimes.

Dr. Rekers is a Baptist minister and co-founder with Dr. James Dobson of the Family Research Council, a D.C. based lobbying group prominent among right-wing Republicans for anti-homosexualism.  He has also served an advisory role in Congress and testified as a state's witness in support of a gay adoption ban in Florida.

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."

This is, of course, a lie, as the young man, called Lucien, advertises his services on an explicit homosexual site loaded with images and videos of gay males naked and having sex.

Dr. Rekers owes an apology for the damage he's done to the GLBT community for his tireless activism to "cure" and marginalize homosexuals.
