Leading Ex-Gay Activist Caught On Vacation With ‘Rent Boy’

A major anti-gay figure that used to work at University of South Carolina, Rekers is a founder of the Family Research Council, a board rekersmember of the National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality, and testified as an expert witness in favor of gay adoption bans in both Arkansas and Florida. He has also published several anti-gay books.


Behind the Scenes, George Rekers Is A Major Anti-Gay Figure Who Has Caused A Great Deal of Harm, Says TWO 

NEW YORK – Truth Wins Out called on anti-gay activist Dr. George A. Rekers to resign from the board of a leading “ex-gay” therapy group and apologize to the LGBT community after the Miami New Times discovered that he took a male prostitute that he met on Rentboy.com to Europe. According to the sex worker, Rekers “likes younger guys to hang out with.”
“This is a bombshell that completely discredits the ex-gay industry and proves that the movement is a fraud,” said Wayne Besen, Executive Director of Truth Wins Out. “While Rekers keeps a low public profile, his fingerprints are on almost every anti-gay effort to demean and dehumanize LGBT people. Lobby groups that work to deny equality to LGBT Americans ubiquitously cite his work. Rekers has caused a great deal of harm to gay and lesbian individuals.”

Both the sex worker and Rekers deny having sex on the trip, and emails exchanged between the two prior to their escapade are carefully worded. Reached by New Times reporters Penn Bullock and Brandon K. Thorp, who broke the story, before a trip to Bermuda, Rekers said he learned that the man in question 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 large baggage cart through Miami International Airport, according to the New Times.)
“It is clear that Rekers has baggage and certainly needs help,” said Besen. “At least he did not say he was walking the Appalachian Trail. Given the sordid and tawdry facts, he should immediately step down from NARTH’s Board and apologize to the LGBT community for his extreme hypocrisy and self-loathing. As of today, his entire body of work on LGBT issues is rendered meaningless.”
This is the second NARTH board member to be exposed as a fraud in the past three months. In February, Arthur Abba Goldberg was unmasked as a con artist who had served prison time for bond fraud. Goldberg was also the co-fonder of Jews Offering New Alternatives to Homosexuality (JONAH). Goldberg resigned from NARTH’s board in shame.

Truth Wins Out is a non-profit organization that defends the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community against anti-gay misinformation, counters the so-called “ex-gay” industry and educates America about the lives of LGBT people. Our goal is to fight for a world where LGBT individuals can live openly, honestly, free of discrimination and be true to themselves.

OK Sister Temptation, here is a good time for you to spill the beans with what you know.

wow! Explosive article! you really can't tell how faithful one person is to his/her beliefs. though its not new to me to hear news like this, i was a bit disappointed. Anyways, if you're a gay and needs to hang out or meditate for some time, try having a gay vacation at Hawaii. I've been there for a "gay travel hawaii", and it was fun and great! Can't help myself to share it :)

I know that the conservative anti-gay movement in Massachusetts is filled with men who have gay sex. A prominent Catholic blogger has been given an ultimatum: change his blog to a gay advocacy blog or have a film released showing him sucking cock. He has agreed. Come next week, he will retitle his blog the gay apostle.

OK... let me see if I have this right... someone has a compromising video of an anti-gay christian and is blackmailing them to come out? So if you tell us all this how does it have power over the person? It would no longer be a secret. This sounds more like the elaboration of a bad liar than a possible fact, even given all the ex-gays and anti-gays out there.

My vote is that this lead is a fraud and so is "Sister Act", but happy hunting.

Sister, bring them down. Expose their hypocrisy. This is the end run for the conservative movement. When the blogger in question begins to change his posts and name names, all of Massachusetts will shake. I've seen the film of him at UMASS Lowell. He will not be able to post anything against gays an lesbians when people see him with his mouth wrapped around a student's cock.

We will emerge victorious.

OK, well we will be waiting to see what this is all about. I have to say that I am more than just a little suspicious of this whole thing, but I'm willing to listen.

SisterTemptation said...

Jay is here because he is being seduced by cock...LOL He wants it bad.

We are winning.

Jay said...

OK, well we are still waiting for your bombshell report Sister, so let us know if and when you're going to spit it out, pun intended.

Is that JayG the Catholic blogger who posted above? What is he doing at this blog? Does he come here often? Does this mean he's changed his mind on homosexuality and gay marriage equality?

John Hosty-Grinnell said...

I doubt Jay G. would want to bother posting on this blog after the fiasco he created the last time. People still don't post on his site as a result of his deception efforts.

John, after reading the article you wrote I can't help but think that Sister Temptation is the same person as Lilith, aka Aquarius, William's wife et al. Since "she" uses the same terminology and brings up Jay G. it does seem likely that Jay is up to his old tricks, don't you think?

John Hosty-Grinnell said...

Well that would be the point of posting the link, right? ;)

I thought since the charade has gone on long enough we could go ahead and end it, right Sister?

You're the one behind this charade John. YOU moderate these comments. You publish them because you are the one behind them.

Exactly how dense are you? I told you before I track IP addresses visiting my website AND there is an icon on my main web page that displays people's IP when they visit. Everything is recorded automatically for easy review and documentation. You've left a trail of evidence Hellen Keller could follow.

You need help, but it's not up to me to force your hand. However, don't push your luck any further. If I hear one more peep out of you on this blog I'm taking all my evidence to Rev Richard Reidy so he can see what you've been up to. Don't force my hand by continuing this nonsense.

I mean it, not one more word... ever.
