George Rekers Resigns From Gay Therapy Thing

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

NARTHdGreat American Wingnut Dr. George Rekers, who recently purchased a gay human from Rentboy.com to carry his luggage, give him massages, and furiously finger his anus all the time, has resigned from the board of NARTH, “the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality.” It probably has to do with the fact that he likes young, professionally gay men to stroke his cock and finger his asshole constantly, in Europe, the gayest place on Earth.

[NARTH vice president of operations David] Pruden also denied a report in the Miami New Times that NARTH had been involved in helping Rekers respond to the media.

“NARTH has never had any role in advising Dr. Rekers except to suggest that if he is innocent he needs to get a good lawyer,” Pruden said in an email. “He has friends who are members of NARTH and they are free to talk with, advise, and needless to say, they are free to help him in any way they might select.”

“NARTH as an organization has taken no official role in this other than asking him to explain to us what has happened and in accepting his resignation,” he said.

So they asked him to explain what happened, and then accepted his resignation. BUT THAT’S ALL. Well, that conversation sounds like it went well. Then again, what do we know? We’re just a blog, and the word NARTH sounds kinda funny.

    I’m sad that Pinky the Mouse was a homophobe.

  • slappypaddy

    problems everywhere these days with the self of steam.

  • Way Cool Larry

    But I thought Rekers was all about researching gay people– especially their naughty bits!

  • Buttery1000

    It sounds like he got NARTH’d. Yeah, I went for the obvious.

  • V572625694

    NARTHing to see here, move along, problem solved, QED.

    Hahaha, you wish! Therapy of homosexuality…that’s so funny!

  • slappypaddy

    “NARTH has never had any role in advising Dr. Rekers except to suggest that if he is innocent he needs to get a good lawyer.”

    if he’s guilty, he needs to get an even better lawyer.

  • NJB

    NARTH clearly has no sense of humor. They too lack self of steam.

  • SmutBoffin

    “NARTH has never had any role in advising Dr. Rekers except to suggest that if he is innocent he needs to get a good lawyer,”

    Why does he need a lawyer? It’s not illegal to be gay.* (Despite the fervent wishes of your organization…)

    NARTH Vader finally turns against his master.

    “Innocent”? Of what? Has someone charged him with the felony of gayness or something? Anyway, I’m writing my new C. S. Lewis parody, “The Anals of NARTHia.”

    NARTH Vader was so gay.

    Now why would he need a good lawyer? He already hired somebody to screww him!

    I think they meant he needs a good sue-New-Times’-ass-off libel lawyer, not a defense lawyer.

    What a Pruden! All poor Rekers did was pick a traveling companion who was photogenic.

  • obfuscator

    george, you might have thought you were safely in the closet(said closet being a walk-in filled with cedar hangers, sassy pumps and a gently used pleasure swing), but your mustache makes your homosexuality visible from outer space, brah.

  • lizzieborden

    [re=574675]bakeneko[/re]: I was just thinking “Am I the only person who thinks NAMBLA when I see NARTH?”

  • JMP

    So, does anyone want to start a pool on how long it takes until NARTH VP David Puden is caught with his own rentboy?

    [re=574665]SmutBoffin[/re]: Maybe in Republican wishful-thinking land, Lawrence v Texas was never decided. Now, the hiring of a rentboy probably does violate certain Florida statutes; but I haven’t heard of any move to prosecute the guy.

  • Carrie_Okie

    “That’s ALL that happened. After he resigned we kept ourselves clothed. I swear…”

  • SayItWithWookies

    So is NARTH going to change its name to NATH, or are there other Christians in the organization diligently doing — um — research?

  • user-of-owls

    Ha ha! When I read this, I laughed so hard I nearly NARTHed!

  • Joshua Norton

    IMHO, what ever he paid those dudes to “rub” him wasn’t even close to being enough money.

  • Ninong

    He was only doing “research” for a book he was writing.

  • WriteyWriterton

    “[NARTH vice president of operations David] Pruden…” Operations? Is that how they do the therapy thing? Harsh.

    And did he have to change his name to Pruden to get the job with NARTH? Isn’t that a bit obvious, or is it just an obvious bit?

  • Bearbloke

    But will Rekers sign my copy of his bloody HI-larious book?

  • disgustedcitizen

    I would guess that just about every other swinging dick in NARTH is as gay as Rekers, they just haven’t admitted it yet.

  • JMP

    [re=574676]magic titty[/re]: “What are we going to do tonight, George?”

    [re=574713]user-of-owls[/re]: I have HTML formatting problems on one or two posts over the last six months — both of which involved Michael Steel, by the way (hmmm…) — and you make it sound like I’m the Jar-Jar Twinks of commenting, or something.

    Only 50% of all gay men were born with that inclination. The other half were just sucked into it.

  • Capitol Hillbilly

    The state of Fla. was paying him $300 an hour for his insights into the devious ways of homos.


  • the problem child

    Do you think Rekers and Pruden broke up over Rekers’ cheating ways?

  • sezme

    [re=574729]Bearbloke[/re]: How can any single aspect of this whole saga not be some sort of elaborate parody?

  • Not_So_Much

    [re=574729]Bearbloke[/re]: Wow — you’d think the NAMBLA-themed cover of his book would have been a bit of a tip-off.

  • Autochthon

    [re=574757]Capitol Hillbilly[/re]: Practice makes pervert…

  • sezme

    [re=574776]Not_So_Much[/re]: Yeah, it’s like a somehow even creepier version of Julie’s Sixteenth Birthday.

    Since he’s all fired and stuff…will he be at this year’s Folsom out and proud?

  • Dolmance

    This is even more disgusting than Wonkette’s blow by blow account from the guy who porked Orly Taitz, describing her as “tighter and wetter,” than girls half her age. I truly appreciate Wonkette for giving me a real sense of what it’s like to have sex with notable Republicans. Any chance you could get a scoop on what’s it like to eat out Kathryn Lopez?

    Thanks, I appreciate it.

  • pat robertsons personal trainer

    [re=574689]Lazy Media[/re]: the only good lawyer he’d need is anthony kennedy (who’s not that great a lawyer) and he only needs kennedy if scalia, roberts, alito, and clancy were willing to rewrite a wholebuncha libel law because reporting some closet case homophobe hired a gay dude to carry his bags around gay ol’ you-rope ain’t actual malice…and truth is always a defense.

    Variety is reporting that George Akers has been signed on as the lead in Lifetime’s “The Larry Craig Story.”

    Look for Lucien to be the most popular baby name in 2010.

  • OldGrowthSwamp

    Shredsville over at Amazon.com under George Rekers. Wow.


    If he’s innocent, get a good lawyer. I guess if now he gets charged with soliciting? Or if has a past with 16yr olds??

    They then suggested if he’s guilty, to get a lawyer from rentboy.com, cause hey, WTF. At least you have somebody to finger during the long boring trial.

  • One Flew Over the Wingnut

    He was also asked to resign as the cowardly lion and from the council of narnia for making the beavers give him hand jobs…it was a bad week for Rekers. He was also kicked out of the “Brent Bozell” look-alike club for only getting a handjob. Everyone who’s anyone in the homersexual conservative underground, or as we call them the religious right knows to really be a brent bozell look-alike one must also give a reach around and be snorkled.

  • new complexnegro

    Now come on, he was just exercising his meat muscles.

  • Dolmance

    I feel strongly in my heart of hearts that Glenn Beck has sucked more than a few cocks in his life. Maybe Wonkette could open up that famous vault of treasure tucked away in their corporate headquarters building and put up a reward for someone to come clean and just admit it, and discuss it at length.

    Also, has anyone had sex with Bill Kristol who would be interested in talking about it publicly? I’m thinking there’s a book in this somewhere, with a chapter devoted to a blow by blow account of one Republican after another having sex. This would be a must have book, for all those political junkies out there interested in something unusual.

  • PsycGirl

    [re=575080]Dolmance[/re]: By judicious use of this and similar comments, I could cut our monthly food bill by 25% for a family of four.

    When I see George’s face, I hear the song “Tainted Love” by Soft Cell.

  • crapistani

    [re=575080]Dolmance[/re]: The thought of food or sex now fill me with nausea, probably permanently.
