If Jay Leno is going to jump into the fray, you can be damn sure Stephen Colbert wasn’t far behind. And with George Alan Rekers still trying to explain away his apparent homosessuality, and the Family Research Council distancing itself from one of its founders, there’s plenty of material.
Here’s the FRC backtracking!
In the past 24 hours FRC has received calls regarding Dr. George Rekers and his connection with the Family Research Council. After reviewing the historical records we did verify that Dr. Rekers was a member of the original Family Research Council board prior to its merger with Focus on the Family in 1987. Reports have been circulating regarding Dr. Rekers relationship with a male prostitute. FRC has had no contact with Dr. Rekers or knowledge of his activities in over a decade so FRC can provide no further insight into these allegations. While we are extremely disappointed when any Christian leader engages in the very activities that they ‘preach’ against, it is not surprising. The Scriptures clearly teach the fallen nature of all people. We each have a choice to act upon that nature or accept the forgiveness offered by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and do our best to ensure our actions, both public and private match our professed positions.
And even Jo-vanni Roman, the Puerto Rican fellow living in Miami, and better known as the rentboy “Lucien,” doesn’t want to participate in this creep’s public nightmare:
I don’t think people realize how serious this has gotten, and I would have talked about this had my privacy been respected. There’s absolutely nothing else I can say.
