Whited Sepulchre George Rekers and his Rent Boy

May 5, 2010

Christian Right leader George Rekers, who helped found the right-wing Family “Research”  Council and is a staunch activist against equal citizenship rights for all Americans (i.e. he is virulently anti-gay and does everything he can to ruin their lives) just “happened” to go on a recent trip to Europe with a rent boy.

(Check out this, among many articles that discuss this event: Christian right leader George Rekers takes vacation with “rent boy”.)

In case you don’t know, a rent boy is exactly what he sounds like: a male prostitute.

Rekers’ justification? “I had surgery and I can’t lift luggage. That’s why I hired him.” Because Rekers couldn’t advertise in, you know, his church for this kind of help, or canvass his Christian friends for an assistant.

I just bet Rekers has a “wide stance” in airports too, eh?

Help with luggage. Suuuuuuure, George. Hypocrite.

For a great analysis of this story, and why it is newsworthy (when in fact, individual citizens’ sex lives really are, in general, none of the business of the public), here is Rachel Maddow on George Rekers. Note that she points out that even to hire someone from RentBoy.com, a person has to click to acknowledge that they know they’re about to encounter sexually explicit information, and don’t mind it.

Ah, George George George. I thought Jesus didn’t like liars.
