(Newser) – George Rekers, the anti-gay preacher who took a gay rentboy on a European vacation and allegedly hired another male escort to massage him, has stepped down from his job as head of the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality to focus on fighting "false media reports." "I have not engaged in any homosexual behavior whatsoever. I am not gay and never have been," Rekers said in his resignation, Gawker reports.

The group Rekers headed until yesterday, which has urged him to "get a good lawyer," describes itself as "a professional, scientific organization that offers hope to those who struggle with unwanted homosexuality."
