Yesterday, Alex Pareene wrote here about George Alan Rekers, the leading figure from the Christian Right who hired a young man from Rentboy.com to accompany him on vacation. When busted, Rekers first said he needed someone to help him with his luggage, then claimed that he was trying to wean "Lucien" from his sinful ways. Last night, Stephen Colbert took on Rekers, declaring him his "Alpha Dog of the Week," for "publicly condemning man-love, while privately being man's best friend." Watch the whole thing.
