Tony Perkins Is Stunned by the News of Rekers' Scandal - But doesn't Want To Show It!

Quick update:

Tony Perkins smells scandal and quickly runs away:

"In the past 24 hours FRC has received calls regarding Dr. George Rekers and his connection with the Family Research Council. After reviewing the historical records we did verify that Dr. Rekers was a member of the original Family Research Council board prior to its merger with Focus on the Family in 1987.
"Reports have been circulating regarding Dr. Rekers relationship with a male prostitute. FRC has had no contact with Dr. Rekers or knowledge of his activities in over a decade so FRC can provide no further insight into these allegations.

"While we are extremely disappointed when any Christian leader engages in the very activities that they 'preach' against, it is not surprising. The Scriptures clearly teach the fallen nature of all people. We each have a choice to act upon that nature or accept the forgiveness offered by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and do our best to ensure our actions, both public and private match our professed positions."
Look at the second sentence again. The FRC website had Rekers' name in it as recently as 3 days ago. Secondly, if Perkins was any kind of FRC leader, he would have known who Rekers was immediately and not have to go down into the basement to look for old records. 

I'll bet some shredders at FRC were working overtime.
