More on the 'rentboy'

Posted By on Wed, May 5, 2010 at 1:28 PM

More reporting here on George Rekers (pictured), the Baptist preacher, Family Research Council founder and "expert witness" on homosexuality whom the Huckabee administration trotted out unsuccessfully in 2004 to support its rule banning adoptions by a gay person or any household that included a gay person. As we mentioned yesterday, it has been reported that he hired a young man as a European travel companion whom he'd found on rentboy.com, a site that advertises male prostitution.

Today's news is that Rekers told a blogger that he had been ministering to his companion, "Lucien." He'd earlier said he hired him to handle his luggage on account of a bad back.

Like John the Baptist and Jesus, I have a loving Christian ministry to homosexuals and prostitutes in which I share the Good News of Jesus Christ with them (see I Corinthians 6:8-11). 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: [1] It is possible to cease homosexual practices to avoid the unacceptable health risks associated with that behavior, and [2] 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.

This, by the way, is said to be "Lucien."
