This is getting all too familiar. One of America’s most viciously homophobic Christian right leaders, George Rekers, hired a boy from the gay prostitute site RentBoy.com for luggage “handling,” or so he claims. RentBoy.com for the uninitiated is a service that connects monied men with sexy rent boys to engage in the boom-boom-wow.
According to Miami’s New Times, Rekers was spotted At Miami International Airport with one of the male “luggage handlers” bought and paid from RentBoy.com in tow as they returned to the U.S. from a swell 10-day European vacation on their way to more private “bag handling” action in Bermuda.
Rekers told the reporter, “”I had surgery,and I can’t lift luggage. That’s why I hired him.”
George Rekers, along with James Dobson, founded the Family Research Council, and sits on the board of another notorious homophobic hate group, NARTH (the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality).
According to Truth Wins Out’s Wayne Besen, “While he [Rekers] keeps a low public profile, his fingerprints are on almost every anti-gay effort to demean and dehumanize LGBT people. 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.”
