“Expert” Witness in Adoption Case Caught with Male Prostitute

May 5th, 2010 by Admin

According to the Miami New Times, George Rekers was hired by Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum as an “expert” witness to defend Florida’s anti-gay adoption ban.  McCollum’s so called “expert” witness was recently caught with a male prostitute at the Miami airport.   

From Steve Rothaus’ Miami Herald Blog:  “Rekers and a colleague were paid $87,000 by McCollum for testimony that called gay people mentally unstable and advised that the ban should be expanded to include Native Americans because, Rekers claimed, they are also at much higher risk of mental illness and substance abuse…”

Is there any scientific support for such claims?  NO.  What a waste of tax payer’s money. 

This is  another link in the chain of prominent anti-gay activists being caught doing the very thing they deem immoral. Hypocrites, all. The harm these people do is not only contemptible, it’s downright Orwellian.

Thanks McDonald’s

July 4th, 2008 by Admin

The American Family Association, which condemns gay and lesbian family causes like marriage equality, has called for a boycott of fast-food chain restaurant McDonald’s.

 McDonald’s, however, has given the AFA notice that it’s not about to allow its policies to be dictated by anti-gay groups.

 In a letter to the AFA Pat Harris, Global Chief Diversity Officer for McDonald’s, wrote, “We treat our employees and our customers with respect and dignity, regardless of their ethnicity, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or other factors. We support out employees’ personal involvement in organizations of their choice.”

 ”McDonald’s is a trusted and well-respected neighbor, employer and corporate citizen in communities across the U.S. We will continue to support our people and their right to live and work in an inclusive society.”
