The Gay Rentboy Scandal That Should Sink Bigot Baptist Minister George Alan Rekers

George Alan Rekers helped James Dobson found the Family Research Council in 1983. He’s an uber-conservative Baptist minister in Miami. He’s a raging anti-gay activist. And he just returned from a sun-filled 10-day trip to Bermuda with his rentboy.

Get your Pulitzer ballots ready, because the Miami New Timesstalking of Rekers from the airport deserves an award.

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. Rekers, a Baptist minister who is a leading scholar for the Christian right, left the terminal with his gay escort, looking a bit discomfited when a picture of the two was snapped with a hot-pink digital camera.

Rekers, in an interesting move, is answering a reporter’s phone calls. He says he hired the rentboy, who the Times dubbed “Lucien,” to help with his luggage, because he just had surgery and cannot lift his bags; he did manage to push his luggage cart. But he didn’t deny he met Lucien on Rentboy.com, where his profile describes his “smooth, sweet, tight ass” and “perfectly built 8 inch cock (uncut)” and notes he is “wild” and “up for anything.” Lucien, however, did confirm that’s how they met.

The embroiling of Rekers in this paid gay sex scandal cannot be overstated. As the Times notes, in addition to founding FOTF, he has served “advisory roles with Congress, the White House, and the Department of Health and Human Services and testifying as a state’s witness in favor of Florida’s gay adoption ban,” “is a board member of the National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality,” and “lectures worldwide, from Europe to the Middle East, on teen sexuality.”

The utter hypocrisy is astounding. And for all Rekers has to say about why gays shouldn’t be allowed to adopt children, this man — who pays traveling prostitutes for sex — adopted a 16-year-old boy four years ago. He is now Lucien’s age.

UPDATE: And here’s “Lucien,” all 5’9, 130 pounds of him.

    I hire all my help from escort sites. Need an electrician? Need a nanny? Need a piano teacher? Clearly one of the enterprising young men at Rentboy should be your first choice.

  • HiredGoons

    “atavistic mustache”

    I know I laughed.

  • Smartpants

    I’m cross-posting from a comment on Pam’s House Blend because the implications of Rekers taking in foster children and adopting a 16 year old boy are deeply disturbing when taken in the context of Rekers’ own testimony in an Arkansas foster parenting trial. In a compilation of his testimony on the NARTH web site, Rekers states, ““households with a homosexually-behaving male also would contribute to a potentially higher risk of removal due to the sexual abuse of an adolescent male foster child by that homosexual”.

    While it would be a leap to claim that Rekers has done anything wrong with the children placed in his care, it certainly gives one pause to consider how many of these viciously anti-gay men have acted out in the private lives exactly what they attack in public.

    Here’s the link to the NARTH post: http://www.narth.com/docs/RationaleBasisFinal0405.pdf The quote is on page 3.

    This needs to be hammered at the “Family REsearch Council” incessantly. Their founder rents young male hustlers. Every question asked of them by any interviewer needs to now begin with “As an organization founded by a man who rents young male prostitutes.”

    That needs to go out to all their donors. Our friends in Congress, if we have any, need to immidiatly call for the repeal of any laws that these folks have had any influence over. And lastly, this hypocrite needs to be investigated for hiring a hooker, dragged into court and humiliated.

    No. 6 · Rikard wrote, “opposes gay rights because he assuems we are all pedo scum like he is. i wish i could laugh.”

    Hey, the rentboy was 20 years old, so don’t call Rekers a “pedo” without some proof! Where we should really criticize Rekers is for his stupidity.

    Not only did he set himself up for being caught in a compromising position, but he was too dumb to have a good excuse planned. Had he been a bit quicker or thought things through in advance, he could have said, “I hired Lucien to help carry my luggage while traveling, knew about his past, and picked him in the hope of helping him repent from his sinful ways,” adding that Jesus was reviled for being a “friend of tax collectors and sinners,” and that Rekers was only trying to follow Jesus’ example. We’d still laugh but Rekers’ “flock” would probably fall for it, being rather gullible to begin with, and the numero uno priority for him is to protect that all-important collection plate.

    Meanwhile, there’s QUEERTY’s sloppy journalism, saying, “he didn’t deny he met Lucien on Rentboy.com” (lack of denial is not proof, so QUEERTY should have merely attributed their meeting on rentboy.com to the rentboy).

  • Smartpants

    SWEET JESUS ON A STICK!!

    Rekers actually sent a response to JoeMyGod!! It’s pretty mind-boggling. The first of many outrageous, sad and hilarious quotes is “Like Jesus Christ, I deliberately spend time with sinners with the loving goal to try to help them.”

    Read the whole thing at http://joemygod.blogspot.com/2010/05/dr-george-rekers-patron-of-male.html

  • B

    QUEERTY’s statement “[Lucien’s] profile describes his “‘smooth, sweet, tight ass’ and ‘perfectly built 8 inch cock (uncut)’ and notes he is ‘wild’ and ‘up for anything'”: too bad QUEERTY showed a picture of the Baptist creep instead of Lucien!

    If you are going to hire someone from rentboy.com as an electrician, as Baxter humorously suggested in No. 1, and will quite likely have your wiring screwed up as a result, you’d at least want that “smooth, sweet, tight ass” to be a smooth, sweet, tight ass.

    No. 14 · Smartpants: Thanks for writing that. OMG, in No 13, in an attempt to be funny, I called Rekers “dumb” for not thinking of that excuse and it turns out he actually had and used it!

    BTW, the Biblical quote is Matthew 11:19: The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and “sinners.”‘

    So Rekers also has an excuse for taking the rentboy out to dinner and drinking with him at a bar – just following Jesus’ example! Even funnier, that passage pretty much sounds like an acknowledgment of rumors at the time that Jesus was a party animal.

  • Obiwan

    Judge and ye shall be judged. I clap my hands every time one of these hypocrites gets found out. It is too bad all the people he has terrorized both directly or indirectly can’t confront him directly with what harm he has caused them. If I saw him, I would give him a piece of my mind!

  • Steve

    This guy must have a lot of money to burn. Think about it. He took Lucien on a trip for 10 days. He covers travel, hotel, food and drink, plus the rate for 10 full days. I would guess they settle on a flat fee for the full 10 days, and I would imagine it would be thousands of dollars. A lot of money just to get someone to lift your baggage.

    Only a disgusting piece of trash culture like the fags could invent something so low as the concept of a rent boy. Like other queers I’m sure nothing is beneath them.
    _____________________

    Michael, you are so desperate that you don’t even think. Rent boy is the same as “Call Girl”, As “Hooker”, as “Prostitute” etc…

    And if you think gays invented that concept then go to Google and do a search on “Pastor and Prostitute” for a truly gigantic list of all of the straight religeous leaders who have been busted with female hookers. You do remember Oral Roberts don’t you?

    But then again, that isn’t why you’re here is it. Just like George Rekers, you are gay and think that if you come on here and scream “Fag” enough people will never figure it out. Sorry Michael, but people as anti-gay as you are ALWAYS gay…just look at George Reckers, you are just like him. I bet you’ve already searched out the rent boy’s ad for yourself haven’t you…I bet you’re thinking of hiring him aren’t you?

    This kid lives, or used to live, with a roommate in Miami. I once chatted with him on a site, and the first thing he said was “I don’ chat with old people except if they have money (mind you, this was last year, and I was 30). He added that he worked in retail too, and that he was very expensive as an escort. He said I could come to his house for $800 and do whatever I wanted. Ah, no thanks, I said.

  • PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS

As well as comments from the young male prostitute impressed by how much the man cares about children.

    ***MISLEADING INTERNET REPORTS ABOUT PROFESSOR GEORGE REKERS***

    A recent article in an alternative newspaper cleverly gave false impressions of inappropriate behavior because of its misleading innuendo, incorrectly implying that Professor George Rekers used the Rentboy website to hire a prostitute to accompany him on a recent trip. Contrary to Internet stories based on this slanderous article, following medical advice Professor George Rekers requires an assistant to lift his luggage in his travels because of an ongoing condition following surgery. His family, local friends, and even another university professor colleague have offered to accompany him on trips to lift luggage. Professor Rekers was not involved in any illegal or sexual behavior with his travel assistant

    Cam,

    Don’t you wish I was homosexual…Just look at Rudi’s comment. He is the prototype of how I see you fags…indiscriminate, promiscuous queers. I’m not going to be gratuitious and call you fags “gay” because you took a word that meant happy, joyous, etc. and co-opted it to mean something vile, repulsive. If you can fix your peanut brain to think that all anti-homosexuals are homosexuals, you really have more of a problem than just being a faggot. You suffer from multiple afflictions and should seek professional help before the affliction gets too far along and affects your ability to discern between a faggot and a donkey, and then you will get your faggot ass kicked when the donkeys kicks you when you try and penetrate him:):) Hardee har har
    As far as that bullshit website you referenced…Written by a fag from a fag’s perspective as he a readily admits in the article…and you want me take that as gospel? You lost mind at the same time you lost your way…I feel sorry for you because “You Know What You Are Doing Is Wrong.” Thas’s why you homos spend so much time trying to sway others into seeing your perverted way of life.

    Actually, some male lions do have sex with other male lions. Some male elephants have sex with other male elephants. Some male giraffes have sex with other male giraffes.

    Anyone who hasn’t heard of “Biological Exuberance” should check out its lengthy list of animals in whom same-sex sex and pair-bonding has been reported.

    One of the interesting things about posts from homophobes is that they continually provide evidence for my theory that prejudice, of any kind, is a mental illness characterized by delusion and a disassociation from reality combined with a healthy helping of antisocial personality disorder.

    Jesus probably didn’t travel with much baggage if any, but nevertheless he had had the young male companion; John, “the disciple Jesus loved”. Given that Jesus instructed all his disciples “to love one another as I have loved you” the singling out of John as special never seems to be explained fully by the Church. It is quite surprising perhaps in the light of homophobic Christianity that such texts are allowed to remain in Gospels, still more so the mention of the young man who in the garden of Gethsemane fled naked as the guards tried to catch him but were left holding the blanket that had covered him.
