Boy oh (Rent)boy, the blogosphere is having a field day with this one.
As I reported earlier, anti-gay kingpin George Rekers was effectively outed by a Miami newspaper after he hired a male escort from the Web site RentBoy.com.
So, given the apparent expertise with which certain folks seem to navigate such sites, it was just a matter of time before photos turned up of the escort, who’s being called “Lucien.”
According to Joe.My.God., Rekers is sticking by his original claim that he hired Lucien to help carry his luggage, but he’s also added a nice twist: He was just trying to save the poor little Rentboy:
“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.”
