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!

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.

I have seen too many friends be damaged by what the church teaches about homosexuality. Keep up the good work.

Thank you as you have given me my faith back. I am a gay man living in the "Bible Belt"

I saw you on the documentary For the Bible Tells Me So. I felt your story to be very compelling and am using it to talk to friends of mine in the Church who are intolerant to the glbt community. I myself am a bisexual Christian woman & have battled it back and forth for years. I felt like when I was in the Church I was straight, but outside of the Church I was a lesbian. I've finally come to peace with the fact that I am am equally attracted to both sexes and here I feel safe having a personal relationship with God. I wish that documentary talked more about bisexuality, but I understand that is a whole different topic in itself. I appreciate you and your husband for standing up for our community. Love peace and blessings.

Hi Mary Lou. I just wanted to say thank you. You've given me hope that my relatives who turned their back on me when I decided to marry another woman will one day see the truth. I also want to thank you for your honesty, it truly amazes me.

It so great what you have decided to do. At the age of 26 I am still struggling to accept myself as a "gay black man" to the point I have lost everything and currently in transitional housing in Chicago and trying to rebuild my life. I hope one day I can do the same and help others who struggle with coming out, especially the youth.

When I heard your words in the movie "For the Bible Tells Me So", I was really touched. "God are you sure that this is what you want me to believe?" That sentence alone expresses my change to accepting GLTB persons. I only want to serve God, and I think he has shown me the error of my ways.
