George Rekers is a baptist minister and one of the Christian Right’s most prominent anti-gay activists. He was on the board for the National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality, which tries to find ways to “cure” homosexuality and testified as a state witness in favor of Florida’s gay adoption ban trial. Rekers was caught at an airport with a gay prostitute returning from a flight to Bermuda. He had found the prostitute on the site rentboy where the prostitute listed himself as “sensual,” “wild” and “up for anything.”

Ted Haggard was the pastor of the New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado and was the president of the National Association of Evangelicals, and would meet with figures such as President George W.

Haggard would admit to being gay and having a relationship with a male church member.

3. Bishop Eddie Long

Paul Crouch is the founder, President and chairman of the anti-gay Trinity Broadcasting Networking. Crouch was accused of threatening to fire a male employee, Enoch Lonnie Ford if he didn’t have an affair with him.
