Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum, in a court case defending Florida’s ban on gays adopting children, paid Rentboy.com customer Dr. George Rekers at least $60,900 and perhaps as much as $87,000 for expert testimony in the appeal of the case.

Rekers testified that gays make inferior and even dangerous parents and that adopted kids living in gay households, even after 10 years, would be better off removed from the home and placed with straight parents.

Miami-Dade County Judge Cindy Lederman later dismissed Rekers’ testimony calling it “far from neutral and unbiased.” She said “Dr. Rekers’ beliefs are motivated by his strong ideological and theological convictions” and so Lederman could “not consider his testimony to be credible nor worthy of forming the basis of public policy.”
