Skip to comments.Rentboy Escort: I Gave `Sexual' Massages to Antigay Leader George Rekers
Posted on 05/09/2010 10:02:01 AM PDT by pinochet
An antigay psychologist's recent trip to Europe with a gay male escort from Miami has captivated readers and viewers around the world. Salacious stories have been published from South Florida to New Zealand, and it has been the butt of jokes by Jay Leno, Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart.
And on Friday, the young escort at the center of the scandal spoke with CNN correspondent Randi Kaye for Anderson Cooper's prime-time show.
Jo-vanni Roman a k a Lucien -- told Kaye that psychologist George A. Rekers, an officer of the conservative National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) and a retired University of South Carolina professor, paid him $75 a day plus expenses to travel with him for two weeks in April to London and Madrid.
Included for the money: Roman, 20, would give nude ``sexual'' massages to Rekers, 61, every day during their trip, the younger man told Kaye.
Gay activists and bloggers have pounced on the story: Rekers, a well-known antigay activist, recently was paid more than $120,000 by Florida to testify in defense of the state's gay-adoption ban
Prominent social conservatives will now be terrified to speak out against the gay agenda, because the media will dig out dirt on their private lives.
Captivated Viewers Worldwide? I have never heard of him. Heard of Jay Leno though. Cool Automobiles...
well...we should not hire closeted homosexuals who hire twinks as our material witnesses in anti-homosexual agenda endeavors Pin.
if this was not a set up then the cakers do have a point
Have any male gay activists been caught with a real woman?
LOL! I’ve never heard of him either.
It is curious just how many hard-core anti-gay Republicans are secretly gay themselves. I’m no fan of state-sanctioned gay marriage, but if they want to form some sort of power-of-attorney or civil partnership regime under which they have inheritance and visitation rights etc., then I’m OK with that. And I’m otherwise inclined to live and let live when it comes to homosex, as long as they stay away from my kids. Maybe this is one area in which conservatives’ beliefs and public policies deserve a little more introspection.
>>>>if this was not a set up then the cakers do have a point
The way the media is running away with the story, they are trying to send a message to social conservatives. If you speak out against the gay agenda, they will dig into your private life, until they come up with something.
As for the allegations, I don't know if they are true or not. But, if they are, this idiot Doctor deserved to be outed, just like the gay Republican Senator that was playing footsy in the bathroom stall. The gay community and MSM might believe they are harming the social conservative movement by "outing" these types. In the short term they may be right, but in the long run they are doing us a favor by purging the movement of these hypocrites.
He should resign or be fired. Narth is a solid organization that helps people with sexual identity problems. This is an example of what happens when someone gets caught by the evil they wish to stamp out. Now we have to endure the stupid assault of those who disagree with gay activism being secret homosexauls. Now let prominent members of the ACLU or gay rights orgs get caught with child porn or sex problems and most of the time it is ignored. Let a handicapped soldier get raped by a superior gay officer and it’s no news, leg an openly gay aids researcher and a decon at a liberal church get caught molesting his 3 year adopted African American boy and pimping him out to strangers via web cam and it is not news.
well if true....this qualifies as something considering what he did for living
it has a Swaggert like quality
>>>LOL! Ive never heard of him either
It is the organizations that he founded that are famous, and have had an impact on the pro-family movement in America. He co-founded the Family Research Council in 1983, with Dr. James Dobson. He is also a co-founder of NARTH, an organization which turns gays into straight people. It seems he may need to use the services of NARTH, himself.
I’m not going to try to make any excuses or lash out at liberals or gay Leftists. This is damage that the social conservative movement has brought on itself. There is no deflecting or minimizing it. Rekers destroyed his own credibility and undermined the credibility of the groups he affiliated with. And to be so reckless about it—hiring gay prostitutes off a website. Like it or not, this is going to set back the traditional marriage and anti-gay adoption movements. Is the criticism and ridicule over the top? Sure. But that is no one’s fault but his and also Dobson’s for not investigating him better.
Thanks for the info.
Who is this guy?
>>>>Is he really an activist, or has he been just pointing out the psychological problems related to homosexuality?
He certainly must be something of an expert on “psychological problems related to homosexuality”, because he has first hand experience.
Some of it may be because some are fighting personal demons or get drawn in too far. Some have been molested themselves. There is no simple answer. However it isn’t true that most who study homosexuals and disagree with it are secretly homosexual because most are not. It is far more likely that homosexuals will leave the gay lifestyle (quietly) than it is for antigay Republicans to come out as gay the difference is only in the reporting. It is like reporting the incidence of sex crimes by homosexual activists which is much higher than in the straights as is drug use as is suicide as is domestic violence. No one wants to prevent homosexuals from seeing their significant others at hospitals what we want them is out of our face and out of our schools and out of the streets doing things that no heterosexual could ever get away with but of course their excesses are never reported because too much time is spent reporting on priests.
Someone I never heard of allegedly paid for sex with another man I also never heard of. The first man denies the accusation.
This goes in the “who cares” bin.
It says absolutely nothing of the validity of the first man’s opinion about anything else, regardless of whether its true or not.
The entire idea that a political idea’s validity is contingent upon the morality and common sense of every single person who embraces that idea is just false.
Perhaps he was just doing research...ick.
My question really was rooted in the fact that libs accuse anyone who disagrees with them as being an activist, extremist, racist fill in the blank with some other ad hominem. That's not to detract that this guy appears to be a real hypocrite.
Well then that’s simple, if a man doesn’t want to be outed as a closet homosexual then don’t f*ck men. It’s not that difficult. Or you come out as a homosexual. Not that difficult.
Sort of proves his whole point, doesn’t it?
"Contrary to false gossip, innuendo, and slander about me, I do not in any way 'hate' homosexuals, but I seek to lovingly share two types of messages to them, as I did with the young man called 'Lucien' in the news story:  It is possible to cease homosexual practices to avoid the unacceptable health risks associated with that behavior, and  the most important decision one can make is to establish a relationship with God for all eternity by trusting in Jesus Christ's sacrifice on the cross for the forgiveness of your sins, including homosexual sins. If you talk with my travel assistant that the story called 'Lucien,' you will find I spent a great deal of time sharing scientific information on the desirability of abandoning homosexual intercourse, and I shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ with him in great detail."
Californians Against Hate seek investigation of George Alan Rekers ... - San Diego Gay & Lesbian News
If that fails, being closely associated with communists, they will set you up, and failing again, they will just lie.
Remember, conservatives, when that good lookin' young thing gives you the "come hither" look, it ain't your lucky day.
In fact he WAS gay.
This is about a dishonest gay person, it is not about sliming the pro-family people.
It's like they tell us gay priests molesting children isn't about gay priests - instead they tell us it's about the evil anti-Gay Catholics.
Get the story straight.
“But that is no ones fault but his and also Dobsons for not investigating him better.”
Dobson helped make Ted Haggard the big shot he became, as well.
From the article, Haggard is attending college, and still begging for money.
Dobson doesn’t display much judgement in picking people.
I have never heard of this guy.
>>>>Perhaps he was just doing research...ick
In fact, that was the original excuse that he gave to the media, when photographs of him and the gay prostitute appeared in newspapers. He claimed his association with gays was no different from Jesus ministering to prostitutes.
Well, Rekers’ “ministering” to the gay prostitute involved going on a 2 week vacation with the gay hooker, and enjoying sex and erotic massages. NARTH needs to fire him, and quick.
The dumbasses need to "speak out against big government" and work toward downsizing it. Militant gays need "big government" to advance their agenda. DUH!!!!!
Small government is the key to neutralizing / making impotent the agendas of ALL special interest groups. And that includes the religious tyrants spoken about by C.S.Lewis, who also want the reins of big government so as to impose their personal conscience on the rest of us. (You can find that exact quote by clickiing on my screen name)
Not unless they are faggots.
>>>>$75 a day? You couldn’t get the oldest, ugliest female in the United States for that paltry sum. Are homosexual escorts subsidized by Pelosi or something?
But we are facing an economic downturn, thanks to Obama’s failed economic policies. Obama’s economy has made life hard for every one, even for prostitutes. Many young people who cannot get legitimate jobs in Obama’s economy are joining the prostitution industry, which is facing a glut of surplus workers. Dr. Rekers wanted to take advantage of the extra-special low rates for sexual services and massages.
It is very hard in this slow economy, for a 20 year old American young man to make $75 a day, working the typical minimum wage jobs. Not to count the extra competition from illegal immigrants, who are depressing wages.
What makes you think this story is true??? Satan is busy at work either way here...
Notice how the media, though, repeatedly fails to report the success stories of former homosexuals that have changed and are now happily married heterosexuals with children.
Most of the so-called “ex-homosexuals” who I see on television are still queerer than a three dollar bill and are one men’s room away from a relapse.
CNN has been running this story non-stop for days. I suspect Anderson Cooper ordered it.
But of course they would even deny such a thing exists.
Homosexuality used to be identified as a psychological disorder. It was later removed, but not in response to a series of studies or the like.
That should only apply if the person is a filthy hypocrite as was Ted Haggard and this one if the story is true. If the story isn't true the accusers should be sued into oblivion.
Well...he did get paid some "stimulus" money...
If they are going to look at this nonsense then why not the National Enquirer story on Obama’s girlfriend. If we are in the gutter with this crap then open it all up.
But the SoCons will try, of course...further alienating mainstream conservatives and those important swing-voters, both of whom could help achieve their goals.
They'll once again take us all down another notch, I fear.
Agreed about Satan. But the fundamental facts of this story have been confirmed and are beyond dispute: Rekers DID hire a homosexual prostitute from a homosexual escort service. There was no mistake by Rekers about who he was hiring. I believe he was out of his mind when he did this, as it would be impossible to be inconspicuous about this. And, these "out of your mind" moments are, I believe, strongly inspired by Satan.
The greatest harm this does is attribute hypocrisy to a seemingly staunch opponent of the normalization of sexual perversion, and the homo-activists and liberals are keenly aware of the power of the accusation of hypocrisy. But if you listen to their core accusations, you will find that the absolute hypocrisy is in them, and a wealth of truth will be reveal in their attacks.
Does anyone ever wonder why the most hateful, denigrating insult a homo-activist can think to hurl against their opponent is accusing the opponent of being "gay?" After they try with all their might to tell us how great and normal "gayness" is, they use this as their ultimate smear against another? Doesn't this tell us that deep inside, homosexuals know how absolutely morally depraved this behavior/impulse really is?
Well I never knew his name before now but I guess we now know why he kept a low profile and let Dobson be the “face” for the organization.
Sorry folks but anyone trying to find a way to believe this is innocent just needs to accept the truth. The guy is gay and bought sex from a male prostitute. If he’d wanted to just council the kid he wouldn’t have gone through that website nor bought his services during his vacation. Airports have people that can attend to your luggage. So do cabs. Hotels. He didn’t need to bring a young male with him knowing how it would look if caught if he only sought to council him.
I’d be more upset but I’ve had issues with FOTF for the last few years. Maybe this scandel will finally force them to clean house.
The Miami New Times is having a total field day with this news.

George Rekers Has Company: The Top Ten Outed Right-Wing Homophobes
Unless you’ve spent the last 48 hours holed up in a French B&B humping the homosexuality right out of your rent-a-boy, you’ve probably heard about Miami New Times’ exposé of gay-bashing evangelist George Alan Rekers’ European tryst with a male prostitute.
Is there any homophobe out there that’s not secretly had sex with men? Buju Banton, put your hand down. Catching counts.
Let’s induct the top ten members into the Hall of Hypocritical Homophobic Homosexuals:

How anti-gay is he? He voted against domestic partnerships for same-sex couples and voted against a bill prohibiting sexual orientation discrimination in a workplace.
How gay is he? He had sex with a gay male porn star — oh, and Curtis wore lingerie under his clothing.
Totally gay quote: “I have not had sex with a guy.”
9. Bob Allen, Republican member of Florida House of Representatives
How anti-gay is he? Supported a ban on same-sex couples adopting children.
How gay is he? Offered twenty bucks to a male undercover cop in exchange for letting him perform fellatio on him.
Totally gay quote: “This was a pretty stocky black guy, and there was nothing but other black guys around in the park,” Allen, on the cop who he thought was trying to rob him. See, he offered to blow the guy because he feared he “was about to be a statistic”.
8. Glenn Murphy, Jr., Chairman, Young Republican National Federation
How anti-gay is he? Dude, he’s a Young Republican.
How gay is he? Got another Young Republican drunk and performed fellatio on him while he was asleep.

4. Larry Craig, U.S. Senator from Idaho
How anti-gay is he? Twice voted to constitutionally ban same-sex marriage. Twice voted against sexual orientation being included in hate crime legislation. Strangely, three times voted to have a margarita machine installed in the bathroom of the Minnesota airport.
How gay is he? He solicited sex from an undercover cop in said airport bathroom.
Totally gay quote: “Let me be clear: I am not gay and never have been.”
3. Mark Foley, U.S. Representative from Florida
