Teach Ministries: To Educate About the Consequences of Homophobia

Mary Lou and Bob WallnerTo those of you who sign our guest book, please keep in mind that it is just that, a GUEST book. When we sign a guest book, it is usually in a person's home, thanking them for their hospitality, or it may be in a church simply giving our name and address. If you have an opposing view to our view about homosexuality, please feel free to contact us directly. We want our web site to be a safe place for those who may be hurting. Thank you so much!

I am currently watching you on The Bible Tells Me So.
  July 2, 2011
I have learned in life that the bible has so often been interpreted for different agendas.

It is so important that people research for themselves and remember the culture and time the bible was written.

It amazes me how people listen and make judgement against others because of an organization , a friend, or a group wtihout the proper research.

My parents have always taught me to researched and to not judge a book by its cover.

Because of my parents teachings, I will not allow myself to judge anyone or try to change anyone.

I very much dislike those that feel they must condemn, judge, change, ridicule and hurt others just because.

I am disgusted with the hatred in our world. Let it be hatred towards, women, people of color, sexuality, obestity, etc., it is wrong.

We need to learn to live and accept everyone's differences because no two human beings are alike. There is no perfection only differences. God is the only perfect!

I believe when we all die and go to heaven God will ask us: was it worth it - all the hatred? Look, you are all here together, to love one another because the greatest commandment of God is to do unto otherrs as you would have others do unto you.

I commend your work, your tiredless efforts and will certainly talk about the film "For The Bible Tells Me So". Your daughter is smiling down at your hard work. God Bless you and your family.

Live, Love, Laugh and all that there!

Hi Mary Lou!
I watched the video last night and I must say I cried my eyes out. I am a gay man -- a child like Anna -- whose father has rejected him. Twenty years later, I am yet to have resolution with my father and last night I found myself wishing he could understand, but have accepted in my heart that will be no reconciliation until he is able to see me as a normal, healthy man, in a healthy relationship, with three wonderful children of my own.

I can't even begin to imagine the pain you feel with the lose of Anna, but am so impressed that you set out to learn about her and her life, and make a positive change in the world. God bless you in your work. It is a ministry like yours that will help the children and families of the future, so hopefully children like Anna, or me, won't have to endure what we do because of misunderstandings. I would love to come and listen to you speak, so please add me to your mailing list if you are ever in the Chicago or Milwaukee area. :)

My son is gay, and as tough as it was to process that information, I knew that it was not a "choice," Luckily my pastor was a wonderful person to talk to to help me come to terms with it. I only wish all pastors were as loving.
