The fight among gays

Disgraced psychologist George Rekers was labeled a "right-wing, religious-based" expert witness and rejected for months by state attorneys defending Florida's gay adoption ban.

But when they couldn't find anyone else to replace him on the witness stand, Attorney General Bill McCollum overruled his trial attorneys, quickly hired Rekers, and paid him twice his agreed upon contract with no questions asked, according to documents released this week by McCollum's office.

Rekers, a psychiatry professor at the University of South Carolina, has been stripped of his credibility after reports surfaced that he hired a gay male escort to give him nude "sexual" massages and accompany him on a recent European vacation.

Eventually, Republicans will realize that the fight against gays is really a fight among gays.

Truly straight people don't even think about gay issues. And, they certainly don't dedicate their lives and professional careers to them.
