BJ and The Bear: George Rekers Resigns From NARTH.
Rather than leave his friend’s behind, George Rekers has resigned from the board of the National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH). NARTH? The acronym reminds me of Pinky and the Brain:
Brain: “Pinky, are you pondering what I’m pondering?
Pinky: “I think so Brain, but where shall I find a jar of coconut oil, leather chaps and anal nitrate at this hour?”
Brain: “Go to George’s hotel room and ask him you fool!”
Rekers, a Baptist minister and prominent anti-gay rights activist still insists that he is not gay and resigned in order to fight “false media reports.” Or it could be that Rekers gave up his position on the board to assume the position on the floor with his new “employee” Lucien, a gay male escort that Rekers sought out on an internet sight that features scantily clad men in seductive poses.
While denying that he had sex with Rekers, Lucien did admit to giving him sexual massage several times while they were in Europe. So in other words, when Rekers claimed that he hired Lucien to handle his luggage, he was using that term very loosely. Lucien also disclosed that Rekers confessed that this was not his first vacation with a male escort.
Mr. Rekers, it is acceptable to be religious, conservative, AND homosexual. Or did you not realize that when you were surfing for gay porn while frantically thumbing through Leviticus searching for loopholes? If you are homosexual, just own it and stop persecuting others based on their sexual orientation. If you’re not gay, stop persecuting others for their sexual orientation! By the way, would you mind passing this message on to the rest of your homophobic, bigoted cronies?
This is not the first time the lights have been turned on revealing religion and conservatism double penetrating homosexuality in an orgy of hypocrisy. For centuries, religion and politicians have railed against the pursuit of what IS natural in the ENTIRE animal kingdom. Meanwhile, more than a few of these morally upstanding leaders have engaged in acts that would make Caligula run screaming in terror. Yes, I’m looking at you Catholicism, pay attention!
Jimmy Pop was right in his own fucked up way when he sang “You and me baby ain’t nothing but mammals, so let’s do it like they do on the Discovery Channel.” When everyone accepts the fact that we are indeed animals, and subject to nature’s lottery of sexual orientation, maybe, just maybe, the sexually repressed religious right will stop pronouncing homosexuality as “The Bad Touch.” They may even substitute that stick of morality shoved up their collective asses with something that’s a little more fun.
Can I get an amen?
