If you’re just joining us, Rekers, a Baptist minister who worked with James Dobson to create the right-wing Family Research Council, has long been a virulently anti-gay crusader. It was interesting, then, when we learned this week that Rekers hired a young, male prostitute to join him on a European vacation last month. Rekers met his travel companion on a website devoted to connecting gay escorts with clients.
Though Rekers later said he merely counseled his companion on how to stop being gay, the escort later said the two were physically intimate.
Yesterday, however, the larger story took on a new angle. Rachel Slajda reportsthat Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum (R), currently a leading gubernatorial candidate, used taxpayer money to pay Rekers to bash gays.

This just gets better and better.
Far Right Leader Busted With Gay Escort Got Taxpayer Money from GOP Gov Candidate to Bash Gays
Thank you Christian Right for taking over the GOP. I'm more scared than ever, but more entertained too. Not even Margaret Atwood could've come up with this stuff.
