Family Research Council co-founder (along with James Dobson) George Rekers hired a 20-year-old male prostitute for a ten-day trip to Europe. Rekers, a prominent leader of the anti-gay movement, says that he just needed somebody to haul his luggage for him due to an injury…so he went to Rentboy.com and selected a call boy. (I won’t link to Rentboy.com so that nobody will idly click on it. Suffice it to say, it’s full of pictures of gay sex.) Somebody took a photo of the scene of the two of them returning from their vacation, and it’s Rekers who is hauling the luggage. Extra-creepy: Rekers has fostered a number of young boys.
The prominent anti-gay guy who turns out to be a closet case has become a cliché at this point. Can we just start assuming that the most stridently anti-gay people are gay? Is that a safe bet now?
