Homosexuals Anonymous

Offering Guidance, Fellowship & Care



International Christian ex-gay ministry affiliated to Homosexuals Anonymous

Miserere Nobis (German Catholic Ministry)

Folgende Punkte beschreiben unsere Tätigkeit und unsere Überzeugungen:

  • Wir sind katholisch.
  • Als solche sind unsere Grundlagen die Heilige Schrift, das Lehramt und die Tradition der Kirche sowie der Katechismus der Katholischen Kirche.
  • Trotzdem sind wir eine unabhängige Organisation.
  • Unser Auftrag ist es, Katholikinnen und Katholiken mit ungewollten gleichgeschlechtlichen Neigungen eine helfende Hand anzubieten.
  • Wir betreiben keine Therapie, sondern bieten Seelsorge, Einzel- und Gruppenberatung, Seminare und Informationen für Interessierte an.
  • Wir sind hierfür bestrebt, uns laufend fortzubilden.
  • Wir sehen uns solidarisch mit ähnlichen Einrichtungen ("Ex-Gay Ministries").
  • Bei Bedarf werden wir auch in der Öffentlichkeit tätig.
  • Wenn möglich, versuchen wir auch den Kontakt zu uns bekannten Priestern zu vermitteln.


Gays & Ex-Gays

Wir haben uns nichts Geringeres vorgenommen als das scheinbar Unmögliche zu schaffen: Gays und Ex-Gays zu vereinen und als gemeinsame Kraft in die Öffentlichkeit zu gehen.
Wir wollen nicht mit dem Finger aufeinander zeigen, sondern uns gegenseitig respektieren und unser Recht auf Meinungsäußerung und auf die individuelle Lebensentscheidung wechselseitig anzuerkennen ohne einander Böses zu unterstellen.

Das heißt keineswegs, dass wir in allem übereinstimmen müssen. Es bedeutet vielmehr, dass wir uns als eine Familie begreifen - und wie in jeder Familie darf auch jede/r seine/ihre Meinung haben und äußern.

Wir freuen uns auf neue Interessenten und Mitglieder - Individuen wie Organisationen. Wer gern mitmachen möchte, melde sich bitte bei Robert (Tel.: 0170-129316 oder E-Mail [email protected]).

The Hearts of the Fathers Fellowship

Has been created to be a haven where anyone can come to find growth and healing. The basic concepts of love expressed by God to his children on earth, in the person of Jesus Christ, were revealed by His ability to meet with any person and extend healing for any problem, spiritual, mental or physical. Without regard to social status, or past failures He touched all who came to Him.

He saw every man for what he could become, not what he appeared to be. He allowed time for growth and through gentle understanding, 

 All who came to him, with a willing heart, were restored to the image of the Creator. The hungry were fed. The sick were healed. Those who had given up all hope were restored and brought back into fellowship with their Creator and their brothers and sisters.

The Hearts of the Fathers Fellowship will attempt to reach out to all who come to us using the same principles. 

Pastoral guidance, step group support and seminar presentations covering as many aspects of growth as possible are available. 

No one expressing a desire to find growth and healing will be excluded. The acceptance found only in the family of God will be shared and the presence of the Holy Spirit will touch all who are willing.

Accepting Ex-Gays

The ongoing story of ex-gay Larry Houston, a Harvard-employed cook in Annenberg Hall, who was criticized by students late last year for speaking openly about his conversion, is just one more example of the intolerance faced by former homosexuals and lesbians all across this country. Robert Spitzer's Columbia University study of former homosexuals and lesbians has shown that same-sex attractions can be overcome. Ex-gay organizations such as National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality, Jews Offering New Alternatives to Homosexuality, Regeneration Books, Evergreen, International Healing Foundation, One by One and Exodus have also helped demonstrate that homosexuality is neither genetic nor irreversible.

Each year thousands of men and women with same-sex attractions make the personal decision to leave homosexuality by means of reparative therapy, ex-gay ministry or group counseling. Their choice is one only they can make. However, there are others who refuse to respect that choice, and endeavor to attack the ex-gay community. Consequently, ex-gays are subject to an increasingly hostile environment where they are reviled or attacked as perpetrators of hate and discrimination simply because they dare to exist.

For example, ex-gay David Ott of Madison, Wisconsin, was charged with a hate crime because he insisted that homosexuals could change their sexual orientation as he had done. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors termed the activities of ex-gay ministries as "acts of discrimination." The Gay, Lesbian and Straight Educational Network distributed the booklet "Just the Facts" to many of the public school districts in America accusing ex-gay participation in public schools as "harassment." The Human Rights Campaign demanded that a contributor reconsider her sizeable donation to a children's school merely because it had indirect ties to an ex-gay ministry.

Tim Wilkins was fired from his job as supervisor at the Raleigh (N.C.) News & Observer newspaper for daring to "come out" as a former homosexual. Lesbian Jackie Goldberg of the Los Angeles City Council passed a resolution condemning an ex-gay conference held in that city as "perpetuating fear and intolerance."

Facing homosexual pressure campaigns that mischaracterized ex-gay speech as promoting discrimination, Detroit's three major television networks rejected ads featuring ex-gay men. Prominent ex-gay author Richard Cohen was accused of discriminating against homosexuals when he released his new book Coming Out Straight. And now Larry Houston. The list is endless because every day brings new hostile acts against the ex-gay community. In this climate of intolerance against ex-gays due to their very existence, support for the ex-gay community is interpreted as bigotry and discrimination against homosexuals.
The harassment of ex-gays by gays themselves is a sad end to the long struggle for tolerance by the gay community. That ex-gays and their supporters are now oppressed by the same people who until recently were victimized themselves, demonstrates how far the gay rights movement has come. Indeed, a new chapter in the movement has begun-the right of homosexuals and lesbians to leave that lifestyle should they so choose.

We need to face the real issue of sexual orientation-intolerance of ex-gays. Would Harvard students allow ex-gays to apply outright for funding under the Undergraduate Council's Anti-Homophobia project? To give sexual orientation protection to one group while excluding another is the worst form of discrimination. Please remember that former homosexuals and lesbians are also worthy of respect and a voice in the public policy forum. Ex-gays are not the hate mongers you deem us to be.

Regina Griggs is national director of the Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays, based in Alexandria, Va.

It saddens me to see how many ex-gay or purity ministries seem to focus more on themselves and on their own self-designed programs than on working together with other ministries or individuals - no matter where they are coming from - and using whatever tools there are to do what we are called for: help people with unwanted same-sex attractions recover and re-build their relationship with God. It is not about us vs. other ministries. It is not abour our very special programs. It is about saving lives - and souls.
