The Fallen Nature of All People, Especially Homophobic Demogogues Employing Gay Prostitutes

by

It's so cool to see the labyrinthian webs they weave when right-wing
hate-mongers get caught in their own slimy hypocrisies. First, George
Rekers, who co-founded the homophobic Family Research Council, takes a
ten-day European vacation
with a gay prostitute he hired from the supremely raunchy Rent-Boy because he needed help carrying his luggage. Now the head
of the Council responds
to the story with "George who?" and "we all fall down." Way to go using
the Bible to justify anything.

While we are extremely disappointed when any Christian leader engages
in the very activities that they "preach" against, it is not
surprising. The Scriptures clearly teach the fallen nature of all
people. We each have a choice to act upon that nature or accept the
forgiveness offered by grace through faith in Jesus Christ." - Family
Research Council president Tony Perkins, presumably not the same one who was so scarily convincing
in "Psycho."
