Two days after it was revealed that Family Research Council co-founder and rabid anti-gay activist George Rekers brought a male prostitute on a European vacation, the prostitute has publicly admitted that the pair did, indeed, have sex. Heavy petting type sex.
The beleaguered kid, whose pretend name is Lucien, spoke with The Miami New Times (which broke the original story) this morning and confirmed that, while he'd initially denied it, the two did have sex while on the trip.
Rekers allegedly named his favorite maneuver the "the long stroke" — a complicated caress "across his penis, thigh... and his anus over the butt cheeks," as Lucien puts it. "Rekers liked to be rubbed down there," he says.
It's a little weird that a sex worker would say "down there," right? Oh well.
Lucien claims that he was initially unaware of Rekers' hideous day job, but now that he knows what a particular sort of asshole his client was, he's apparently decided to speak up and set the record straight.
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 Rentboy.com, 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:  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.
So, that's lovely.
How much longer until we get the teary, Ted Haggard-style confession?
