Pictures from the mission field

We now have pictures from Dr. George Rekers’ evangelical crusade to Europe to convert Miami’s gay prostitute population. Joe.My.God is now revealing the identity of Rekers’ luggage lifter/potential convert.

Among Lucian/Geo’s many talents are “Travel Companion, Tour Guide, Interpreter.” He sounds very useful. And considering he’ll “do anything you say as long as you ask”, he sounds like an easy convert.

It keeps getting better and better. I bet this closet case wishes he could be wherever Tiger went and could not be seen for 3 months.

I bet he could make it happen, and Lucien could go with him and by the end of that period the boy would be quoting scripture like a pro.

Let see — great eyes, nice face, good definition. And I love the hair. But at only 130 lbs while standing 5’9″, I’m not sure he would exactly lift my luggage, if you know what I mean.

But he could totally tote my tackle.

It wasn’t hard to find the guy – I located him a few hours ago based on the description in the article.

What I find sad is the rush to automatically intrude on the privacy of this guy and plaster his image everywhere. I find this completely hypocritical. Its one thing to go after Reker who clearly has issues – its quite another to go after the escort.

Modern luggage pieces tend to have wheels.

Modern airports have skycaps.

Taxi drivers and bellhops are accustomed to helping with luggage.

Is it really that easy for a Christian to make up BS lies/stories like that?

I’d love to know exactly how much Dr. Rekers spent to hire Geo for 10 days. I bet skycap and bellhop tips would have cost much less.

I suppose he visited rentboy.com only to conveniently and quickly find a local unfortunate to whom to minister. For 10 days. Away from his neighbors, etc.

I think the gifts of this story are only beginning. It’s good for improving LGBT (and straight) lives, as well as entertaining.

This is terrible news for Peter LaBarbera. As does the Westboro Baptist Church, it calls into question the sanity, rationality, and honesty of anyone peddling religio-homophobia.

How much you want to bet LaBarbera doesn’t say a peep about Rekers? It’s too embarrassing, and too damning.

tim,

Are you kidding me? With this publicity, I suspect his hourly rates just went up and by now he’s probably found a publicist.

“Travel Companion, Tour Guide, Interpreter.”

The irony. If Dr. Reker had been on the up and up, he could easily have said – “I thought I was getting a translator and guide for my trip, one that would not raise scandal the way a young woman in that role would. I was surprise to learn of the other assistance this young man was willing to provide”

Dressed, Geo would not remarkable looking – attractive yes, but not enough to draw a lot of attention.

Tour guide and interpreter are legitimate needs for a tourist. But ‘luggage lifter’ and ‘someone to practice evangelizing on’ are not.
Hope for Geo’s sake they practiced safer sex.

ugh, he looks all of 16 years old, maybe 17. Gee, we all know 17 year olds are all absolute magicians in bed.

i might not be attracted to men, but banging this guy would be like banging one of my sister’s high school guy-friends. CREEPY.

Rekers may be a disgusting closet case, but he has good taste! To paraphrase Lenin, the gays will sell the religious right the twinks with which we’ll screw them.

Emily:

I don’t know how things are in the lesbian community, but lots of gay and straight men love younger partners. I prefer a bit more maturity myself, but who is to argue over matters of taste as long as the young person is of legal age.

gee, guess everyone on this site is ready willing and able to bang any ol’ “younger man.” Eh, whatever. I’m not one for barely-pubecents.

I’m with Emily… golly garsh dangit, call me old-fashioned, but I just want my guys to be old enough to grow a moustache and chest and pubic hair. *rolls eyes*

Have you seen that Family Research Council has already removed Dr. Reker from their website – that was fast! JMG has the scoop…

AJD
May 4th, 2010 | LINK

Emily, he’s about 20 or 21, and I can tell that by looking at him. He’s not “barely pubescent.”

And Candace, you might do well to know that a lot of guys don’t grow chest hair in adulthood, and natural smoothness is very common among Latino, Scandinavian and Asian guys.

Candace

The Latin men that I have been with must just be some kind of genetic mutation, because without exception, they have been hairy. But that’s probably because they were adults.

Gosh, my bad.

The FRC will have that site scrubbed clean by tomorrow night. It’s interesting to note that Reker is local but not surprising– Florida has an overload of closeted, gay-bashing “Family Values” politicians who are on the DL. Seriously, we have some of the most moronically stupid public figures imaginable. It’s like they set themselves up to get busted just for our amusement.

Huh. Well he has good taste in looks at least – for someone more than half his age that is. Pretty sad and creepy.

Hmmm, I wonder if Geo has the same itch to scratch regarding hypocrisy that Mike Jones did. Would love to see this guy on Larry King malleting a deadly vampire steak religiously right through the heart of the bible belt.

Emily, I beg to differ with Mark. Gay men, like most straight men, prefer peers as partners. I have yet to meet a gay or straight couple with this kind of difference in age. I’m sure they exist, but they’re not exactly typical.

As for the Lucien. For his height, he’s almost 50 lbs. underweight. I doubt he could lift a pillow, let alone a suitcase. Muscle definition is fine if there are actual muscles being defined. No thank you.

PS I’m w Jason and Emily on this one. Skinny as a rat and too big an age dif, no thanks.

Maybe Dr. Rekers plans for Lucian were noble.

First, de-gayify him a la Ted Haggard. Second, Christianize him. Third, use him as an example of a happy straight man. There are way too many miserable looking ex-gays out there. Lucian would be a great poster boy for the movement…

Now its time for Dobson and ilk to give Rekkers three weeks of counselling and declare him completely heterosexual.

At least Reker got a hottie. So I guess it was money well spent! Yummy, a white looking Puerto Rican. I’m drooling. ;-p

Maybe Dr. George Rekers was actually doing research. Charting the various urges that have to be repressed, and also how long a heterosexual male can withstand the forced advances of a young virile professional gay male. I would love to see that expense account and the defense for it!

Not typical, maybe, but not uncommon. Christopher Isherwood and Don Bachardy? Or — us. I was 52 when I met my 24 year old partner, 27 years ago. (He’d previously had an affair with an older gentleman in Paris who turned out to be a Jesuit priest.) All kinds of people are looking for one another, and sometimes finding.
