Dr. George Rekers, the antigay Family Research Council co-founder who reportedly took a trip to Europe with a male escort, spent part of his Tuesday trading messages on Facebook with people inquiring about the story connecting him to rent boy "Lucien."
JoeMyGod blogger Joe Jervis posted a comment Rekers made on his Facebook page after he asked the antigay Christian leader how "to find the hottest male prostitutes." Rekers wrote that the article about him and Lucien was a "mixture of truth and falsehood."
He reiterated the claims he made to the Miami New Times that he didn't know Lucien was an escort until they were midway through their vacation, saying he hired the young man because recent surgery requires him to have assistance carrying his bags.
Later he said he wanted the media to leave Lucien alone because "already the press has been stressful for him."e Lancet.
