For those of you not following it, we have yet another case of right wing religious hypocrisy a.l.a. Ted Haggard, Larry Craig or countless other “anti-gay” redeemers who have made one of their life missions to attack the very thing they deny in themselves, that they are gay or at least love male sex. 61 year old family man and Reverend George Rekers who co-founded the Family Research Council with James Dobson, espouses gay conversion therapy as a board member of the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuals (NARTH) and is a regular consultant to anti-gay initiatives around the country; was revealed to have hired an escort for a ten day trip to Europe. The escort, “Julien” or Jo-vanni Roman was hired at Rentboy.com and says that Rekers asked for the performance of the “long stroke” according to the New Times and reported in the Huffington Post. Rekers initially claimed to have hired the “rentboy” for help in handling his luggage and later changed his story to say he had hired him as part of his mission and outreach work. The Colbert Report does a masterful job of explaining the baggage handling that Julien was doing throughout the trip.
