    Let’s not dignify his intricate explanations. Here is all anyone needs to know:

    Rekers hired a male prostitute to sleep in the same room as him while he was on a tropical vacation.

    I honestly don’t care if they had sex. I just want this evil man’s reputation destroyed, and the facts here speak for themselves and are more than sufficient for the task.

    Rekkers first claimed he didn’t know his rentboy was a prostitute, now he claims he hired him because he likes to evangelize to prostitute. He is a fool if he thinks anyone is going to believe him now.

    I’m sorry, but I don’t think I can fully understand any article or blog post about this incident that doesn’t include a photo of the rentboy in question…

    It would be better to just come out The Gay and hump every twink he could find than have to listen to the hours and hoooooours of counseling from his NARTH buddies. This guy is in for a fate worse than death when they start trying to “cure” him. A well-deserved fate, too.

    Straight men may dislike gays because they think buttsex is nasty, or because they’ve been brainswashed by their religion– but no straight guy is so OBSSESSED by homosexuality that they devote their whole life against it. They ALWAYS end up getting caught in a gay tryst.

    Well, if Rekkers is married, his wife better contact Ms. Haggard to find out where to purchase those nifty butt toys that keep Ted at home and heterosexually satisfied nowadays.

    Phil, he’s changed his story. That’s pretty much guilt by cover-up.

    Wow! The bible really is an amazing book cuz there is really an excuse for anything one does in it:

    “Why do you, an older man, have that scantily-clothed spry, virile and well tanned male youth carrying your luggage?”

    “Jesus wept. Other Bible-y things. Don’t question me.”

    I think by the time the two of them got to MIA, “lucien” was already done carrying Rekker’s “luggage.”

    Perhaps we approach the news in different ways, but when I see an article that includes the terms “rentboy,” “twink,” or even “escort” or “porn star”…I need to see a photo. No other information seems relevant until that happens.

    This emphasis about not having sex brings to mind President clinton. What does not have sex mean?

    I do not believe that Mr. Rekers avoided all sexual contact with his paid prostitute. They may not have had intercourse, and perhaps Mr. Rekers isn’t into anal intercourse. I wouldn’t be surprised, if he spent the entire time that he was receiving oral sex from this prostitute spouting off about the evils of anal sex. Mr. Rekers is twisted enough to think this way and view his current line as truthful.

    As for “Lucien,” it is clearly not in his interest to ever admit that he had sex with Mr. Rekers for money. Only an idiot would do that without a deal or the stature of limitations having run out.

    Phil, Rekker has ADMITTED that he paid for the companionship *cough* of a young male prostitute. At a minimum site rate of $70 an hour. For 10 days. In Europe. Plus all expenses. Just to tell the boy about Jesus, though.

    Again, he ADMITTED THIS.

    Are you claiming that because no picture has been posted of the escort he was caught with, that none of this happened???

    I believe Phil is making a funny, guys. Chill. As for the article, he banged the whore. He banged him for ten days. End of story.

    No, I think you’re misreading my comments. I’m not saying that the news is false. I’m just saying that I want to see a photo. If a blog or newspaper ran a story with the headline, “Girl’s Skin Turns Bright Blue After Chewing Tainted Gum,” that story would _scream_ for a photo. It’s not that you wouldn’t believe her skin turned blue, it’s just that you’d want to see what it looks like.

    When a news story includes terms like “rentboy,” “twink,” or “gay prostitute,” that story also, in my opinion, screams for a photo. Such photos would serve the valuable news functions of helping readers decide for themselves “How young-looking was the man in question?” or “Do Reker and I have similar taste in men?”

    If Rekers wanted to evangelize to gay prostitutes, he could have done it for free. Spending thousands of dollars (I’d guess $15,000 for 10 days abroad) to evangelize to one? Baloney.

    Add to that the initial story about how he needed someone to help him lift luggage, and it smells outright rank.

    The photo is probably being “shopped” around. Once the highest bidder settles it will be available unless the highest bidder is Rekers.

    You don’t have to look far, Phil, there’s a pic on BTB and Joe.My.God. “Geo” looks like he’s MAYBE 14.

    There is another ex-gay angle to this whole sordid mess that we may not have considered. Some of these prostitutes are gay for pay, and are actually heterosexual, just trying to make a buck.

    In that case, closet case Rekers might have thought that paying a heterosexual male escort (who has no hangups about sex for pay with men) to spend 10 days with him in a “non-sexual” relationship, might get him in touch with his inner heterosexual self.

    Meanwhile, during there sexual activity (poor ex-gay guy falling for temptation with naked hooker in his hotel room), Rekers could be going on and on about how awful homosexual sexual activity is, and the kid is just saying to himself, “Yeah, but it does pay the bills.”

    The man either doesn’t know Google or is a fool.

    See…now, Lynn…these, THESE international butlers just carry luggage. They only CARRY luggage and maybe straighten your tie. Make tea or a phone call. They don’t do it in the butt area later.

    I’m sure Rekers went up and down the Googles and learned international butlers weren’t the butlers for him. Probably all old, too. At least 25 and unfit. Eww.

    rentaboy.com + luggage-carrying = European buttsecks > ministering for Jesus

    That was hilarious Candace!

    Reminds me of Sir Norman Fry – the ficticious Conservative politician portrayed in the Little Britain comedy series:

    “There is another ex-gay angle to this whole sordid mess that we may not have considered. Some of these prostitutes are gay for pay, and are actually heterosexual, just trying to make a buck.”

    This rentboy’s profile states that he’s bisexual and versatile. He also claims to be 20, but I agree with others — his photos make him look disturbingly young. If Mekers really wanted someone to carry his bags, he could easily have found a big muscle guy in his 30s on the same site.

    Timothy, you said, ‘Rekers may not have actually had sex with the kid. I don’t doubt that he did bore him with endless evangelism. That’s the justification that Rekers gives himself to try and rationalize his own urges . . . Unable to recognize and accept his attractions which would allow him to construct an ethical life and flow his attractions into a healthy response, he has pushed them down and smothered them and now has no power over them. So now there is George Rekers cruising Rentboy, telling himself that he’s only there for the evangelism, that he’s feeling compassion not lust, that it’s okay because he won’t go that far too far not quite not yet really it’s not sin really he won’t have sex with them.’

    You may well have the right of it. Sounds familiar from my years of trying to balance desire with religion, of hoping for temptation while rejecting it. Anyway, I’m quoting you all over the Web when this topic comes up. George Rekers is a jerk and a hypocrite, but he has a context.

    These techniques are most detieifnly barbaric and evil, regardless of whether they’re applied to sexual orientation or something else. Creating an environment where a child is punished for random behaviors that are arbitrarily labeled as “wrong” (in this case, feminine) is cruel and psychologically torturous on a staggering level. Even if such methods were applied to something like bed-wetting, not only would they not solve the problem, the child would be looking at years and years of therapy. Shattering a child’s self-esteem and forcing them to live in constant fear that the slightest misstep will result in harsh punishment is barbaric no matter what context it is used.It’s also worth noting that the rate of suicide or attempted suicide is higher in gay teens than any other demographic. Ignorant, cruel shit like this is one of the reasons.
