Still Lying

Family Research Council co-founder and rabid anti-gay activist George Rekers:

For his part, Rekers still maintains that Lucien was brought along for the purpose of carrying the luggage. He’s also now explaining that he found the lad on, an obvious escort site, because he wanted to save someone’s mortal soul, just like Jesus did. He posted this beautiful sentiment on Facebook:

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.

The luggage handler now admits they had sexual contact. No mention of the Gospel, though. (Unless “Oh God, oh God, please don’t stop” counts.)

  1. I guess Mr. Rekers was so busy shrieking “oh jesus oh jesus” as Lucien applied the long stroke, that he completely forgot about the commandment “thou shalt not bear false witness”.

  2. I’ve just discovered a nifty satirical blog called Christwire. Here’s what they have to say about this news:

    It seems to draw people who lack a sense of irony or even an entry-level bullshit detector. Most commenters, especially the fundies and righties, take it absolutely literally. (Like the bible, you know.)
