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 first read an article about you in People magazine November 19, 2007, keeping the article since then, and I just last month had the courage to come out to my very religious parents- 3 years later. They still love me and are keeping communication open with me, but make it clear that they believe my buying a house with my partner and five year old is a mistake and the lifestyle is a sin. This is what I have been taught all my life and struggled with. I still love God and it is so free to be honest with my parents and sister now. I am going to send my family a link to your website. Thank you so much for your ministry and sharing your story. Smiles, Bear

I am sorry for your loss, and totally identified with your daughters fears. I had the courage to tell my mother while we were both drinking, and my journey of closeted and inherent homophobia was a force in my alcoholism. In recovery now for many things. I wanted to tell you how great an impact your testimony had for me and my spiritual growth. I am so happy that I was able to listen to your truth and feel your love. Thank you so much for what you are doing. I truly admire your commitment toward educating us all. Respectfully, Cubby Fitzpatrick

I want to say that I was very touched by your story. But, most of all, I was moved by your positive change. Thank you so much for standing up for what is right! You are such an inspiration to me!

Hey why miss an opportunity to say it again-you guys are fantastic and please keep on doing what you do. It has helped so many including me in ways even I am not aware of. Anna is so proud I am sure.

I think it's great what you guys are doing. I think most straight people need to be educated about the consequences of homophobia.

You give me hope that one day my family can change their hearts and minds about me and my lifestyle. I watched For The Bible Tells Me So, and then asked my parents to watch it as well. Their response was to give me photocopies of the scriptures in the bible that condem me to hell. I want so badly for them to understand me and see the love I have for my partner of 2 years is real and that it is not wrong, that love is never ever wrong. You give me hope, and I thank you for that.

Mary Lou, thank you for allowing your heart to be changed through the life of your sweet daughter, Anna. Your changed heart will have enormous ripples. If only my Mother would have the same open heart you gained years back. I will not stop praying for her. Anna's story has touched me and God has thankfully shown me there is more than just shame to be felt through all of this. Anna is a saint in my life.
