Indiana Teacher Has Message For Teacher Who Claims Gays Have No Purpose In Life

Nate Walden, who says he’s an Indiana teacher, has a message for Diana Medley, the Indiana special needs teacher who told a local news station that gay people have no purpose in life. Walden, in this image he posted to his Facebook page, tells Diana Medley that his “gay students do have a purpose.”

Dan Savage: Teacher Who Said Gays Have No Purpose In Life ‘Should Be Fired’

Walden adds, “I support my students regardless of sexual orientation!”

“Diana Medley should not be teaching…,” Walden adds in a comment on Facebook.

Medley has stayed out of the news since WTWO aired an interview they did with her.

“I believe that it was life circumstances and they chose to be that way; God created everyone equal,” Medley told WTWO:

“Homosexual students come to me with their problems, and I don’t agree with them, but I care about them. It’s the same thing with my special needs kids, I think God puts everyone in our lives for a reason,” said Madley.

“‘So the same goes for gays? Do you think they have a purpose in life?’ No I honestly don’t. Sorry, but I don’t. I don’t understand it. A gay person isn’t going to come up and make some change unless it’s to realize that it was a choice and they’re chosing [sic] God,” said Medley.

Medley is supporting a group of Christian parents and students who want to hold a prom banning gay people because the local high school does not support a ban.

Walden did not immediately respond to a request for additional comment — he’s probably in school taking care of his students and not checking Facebook.

Someone should point out to Diana Medley that people make their own purpose in life — it's not up to her to decide whether they have one or not.

In fact, if she were a real teacher, she would be helping her students find their purpose in life.

You are so right. So how can she be a teacher if she has already decided some students have no purpose in God's eyes? Dan Savage is right. She needs to go. BTW, if she is an educator, wouldn't she have studied some social science to learn that gays don't CHOOSE to be gay just like she didn't choose to be straight. The point is she is ignorant, another reason why she needs to go. I don't hate her, but she makes me so sad.

She is a hater, not a teacher.
