Rekers: 'I am not gay and never have been'

Here’s an e-mail I just received from professor George Rekers:

rekersIf today’s news story in the Miami New Times is accurate, I have been advised to retain the services of a defamation attorney in this matter, because the fact is that I am not gay and never have been.

My travel assistant called me this afternoon earnestly asking me to clarify on my website that he worked for me as a travel companion and not as a prostitute. I completely agreed with my travel assistant that it is absolutely true that I hired him and he worked for me as a travel companion and not as a prostitute. I also read to him the first sentence that has been posted on my website for several days that says, “A recent article in an alternative newspaper cleverly gave false impressions of inappropriate behavior because of its misleading innuendo, incorrectly implying that Professor George Rekers used the Rentboy website to hire a prostitute to accompany him on a recent trip.”

Two days ago a professor friend of mine recommended that I ask my travel assistant to send me an email saying what happened on the trip so I could post a statement on what we agreed on. When I called my travel assistant to ask if he would write a statement to me, h asked me to send him questions to remind him of what topics about our trip he should write to me about, which I did on May 4.

Here are the four questions that I sent my travel assistant at his request two days ago, together with the answers we agreed on in our phone conversation this afternoon:

1. Did Dr. Rekers in fact hire you to lift my luggage when necessary as a travel assistant during the trip, because I cannot do so myself since I had surgery?

Together we agreed that I in fact hired him to lift luggage when necessary as a travel assistant during the trip, because I cannot do so himself since having surgery. We agreed that this is what my travel assistant agreed to do for pay prior to taking the trip.

2. Did you in fact lift my luggage during the trip each time it was necessary, or did Dr Rekers lift his own luggage during the trip?

We agreed that my travel assistant did in fact lift my luggage each time it was necessary, that I did not lift my luggage, and my travel assistant did all the lifting.

3. Did Dr. Rekers hire you as a prostitute for the trip?

We agreed that I hired him as a companion and to help with luggage, and that I did not hire him as a prostitute for any sexual purpose.

4. Did Dr. Rekers spend time explaining how the Christian faith is based in love to you during the trip?

We agreed that I explained the Christian faith to my travel assistant in conversations on several days during the trip.

Oh geez, he just can't leave the luggage innuendo alone, can he?

Man this guy just doesn't know when to shut up!

Whatever lifts your luggage, "Dr" Rekers!

What about the nude messages? Hmmm?

Did he not read that the guy he hired has already identified himself and admitted to everything? Why doesn't he just shut up?

"Together we agreed that I in fact hired him to lift luggage ... because I cannot do so himself"

Together we agreed that we would say this is what happened?
"I cannot do so himself?"

This statement does not exactly ring of sincerity.

Objection, your honor, Dr. Rekers is obviously leading the witness with the wording of his four questions!

"When I called my travel assistant to ask if he would write a statement to me, h asked me to send him questions to remind him of what topics about our trip he should write to me about, which I did on May 4."
"I had a lawyer friend take 10 minutes and draft a series of questions which I answered myself"

I mean, COME ON.

Well that certainly clears up everything!!

Literate much?

Now he's going to bully and threaten this guy? Plus, there is a picture of him handling his own luggage while his handler stood aside, his hands empty.

Of course, George still hasn't explained how he found this young buff lad to do his "baggage handling" for him. The ONLY way to acquire Lucian's services is through rentboy.com. He also hasn't explained the photo of HIM dealing with the luggage cart while Lucien is standing off to the side. Nice try George. But the public isn't as gullible as your ex-gay followers.

By the way, you can't sue someone if they call you gay. Being gay is no longer considered defamatory. We all know you think it's something to be ashamed of. Which explains your desperate attempt to deny everything. It must be sad living in your world, Georgie.

Georgey Porgey seemed to have no trouble pushing a platform with all his/their luggage when the media snapped photos of him and his boy-toy at the airport upon their return. Guess all that sexercise they had during the trip did wonders for his back. Especially after he learned how to wear his ancles as earrings. :)

Boy Toy: "Ha, your mustache tickles!"

George: "Then let's switch - I'll sit on your face then."

Boy Toy: "That'll be an extra $250, um, two bags of luggage..."

George Rekers?

Shouldn't that be George Rectum Wrecker?

What is pure psychotic insanity is that Rekers' new denials are an email where he answers in his own voice answering in place of Jo-Vanne. He is so deep in denial that he mixes up "I" and "the travel assistant" in his email answers. This guy is in a very dangerous state and seems capable of anything since he is so delusional. SCARY!

Nervous breakdown in progress is my interpretation, too. (@John Brewster)

The whole thing comes across as a desperate and pathetic "These are not the droids you're looking for."

Or maybe as a public reminder (threat?) for Geo of the terms of the hush-money arrangement.

So very weird.

Who talks in the third person like this?!

The problem here is homophobia. Homophobia is a sin like lying, stealing and murder. God hates sin and does not approve of those who prommote it as a "religious belief" or "morality" or "love." When we mock God by using false doctrine which smears Christ's face with the darkness and shame of homophobia, we can expect payback. The Bible is clear that you reap what you sow. The best thing militant anti-gay activist Rekers can do now is repent and leave the immoral anti-gay lifestyle. It will mean he has to stop eating at the money trough which professional anti-gay pressure groups provide, but it will also mean that he may save his soul. Only he can decide which is more important to him--God or homophobia.

This story just gets better and better. I love that he jumps back and forth between first and third person when speaking of himself/his trick... who knows? Maybe it's magic like the holy trinity.

OK, here's the thing: There are lots of men who do not identify themselves as Gay (which they see as a cultural label) who may have girlfriends or wives and even children ... and still occasionally have sex with other men. In the Black community such men are perceived to be on the "Down Low." For those of us involved in HIV awareness and prevention such men are referred to by the somewhat clinical term, "MSM": Men who have sex with other men. These are the sorts of men who gravitate more toward furtive, anonymous sexual encounters in places like motels, roadside rest stops, and airport restrooms, rather than living their lives openly and honestly like respectable Gay men should. It may be that political figures such a Larry Craig and Andre Bauer (or religious figures like George Rekers) are these sorts of men. So when they vehemently deny that they are "Gay," they may be speaking honestly. It's just that they like boying around on the side.

Heterosexual douchebaggery at its finest!

You guys are so sad. It's obvious he hired him without knowing that Lucien worked as a prostitute on the side. Most other dudes would have capitulated by know if he was really gay. I wonder if he was even set up. All of the sudden the New Miami Times shows up with a camera!!! Stand strong, Dr. Rekers.

This creep needs to shut his yap, already! But that's the way these despicable closet-cases always behave when they're outed. Desperate, shameful, pathetic, evil, foul, disgusting troll. Not to mention one hell of a tacky toupee!

he is on tape talking to lucian. he is SO gay.

@wil honey you are so in denial over your beloved dr. reker. he went to rent boy and he rented lucian. he did it there is no denying he did it. the dude is gay and has been bashing gays with his fake science for decades.

whatever queen!

georgette:Je ne suis pas gai aux etats-unies,seulement en europe-asie-thailand et au maroc.

ja ja ja ... he has to be not only crazy and insane with his belief of sin!!!! but sexually depressed!!! the rigidity of concepts make him not accept prostitution but curiosity... .like catholic scandal hidden on faith and moral while erroneous and fakeness behaving; Deceptiving and cheating and beling himsefl rigth. He's crazy like Chavez and Venezuela.
