Lies and Hypocrisy

It Doesn't Get Any Bigger Than This!

Move over Ted Haggard, a new Christian Right VIP is now leading the hypocrisy pack!

[George} Rekers, a Baptist minister who is a leading scholar for the Christian right, left the terminal with his gay escort, looking a bit discomfited when a picture of the two was snapped with a hot-pink digital camera. Reached by New Times before a trip to Bermuda, Rekers said he learned Lucien was a prostitute only midway through their vacation. "I had surgery," Rekers said, "and I can't lift luggage. That's why I hired him." (Though medical problems didn't stop him from pushing the tottering baggage cart through MIA.)

And the Miami New Times has a wonderfully descriptive passage::

He [the rent boy] was soon followed out of customs by an old man with an atavistic mustache and a desperate blond comb-over, pushing an overburdened baggage cart.

Yes, if all of the circumstantial evidence is true, Rev. Dr. George Rekers will go down in hypocrisy history as the man who pulled the plug on the "ex-gay" movement and made a very serious dent in the armour of the Family Research Council.

Short rundown on Rekers ala Rachel Maddow:

Now here's a man who is " a Distinguished Professor of Neuropsychiatry & Behavioral Science Emeritus at theUniversity of South Carolina School of Medicine. Here is a man who became an ordained Baptist minister after getting his Doctor of Divinity at the University of South Africa. Who, along with James Dobson, founded the Family Research Council. Who has written many books, including: Shaping Your Child's Sexual Identity and Growing Up Straight: What Families should Know about Homosexuality. Who is on the board of Directors for NARTH, the organization that purports to turn gays into heterosexuals. And who has been an advisor to the White House and Congress, even testifying against gay adoption. According to the rent boy (known only as "Lucien"), Regers adopted a 16 year-old boy last year.
