The Atlantic Wire already brought you the story of anti-gay activist George Rekers reportedly hiring a male prostitute from Rentboy.com to accompany him on a trip to Europe. Even in this histrionic media age, the story needs no embellishment.

Yet Stephen Colbert nevertheless managed to add own unique spin to the story when he dubbed Rekers his "Alpha Dog of the Week." Colbert showed off his own Rentboy cameraman, Julian, and addressed Rekers' defense that he was merely trying to help sinners.


Yes, Jesus spent time with prostitutes. That's why good Christians should always ask themselves: "WBWJR. What boy would Jesus rent?"

Colbert concluded: "So for publicly condemning man-love while privately being man's best friend, you sir are my Alpha Dog of the Week."
