Three fundamental concerns are driving the formation of the new citizens organization:
I. The negative impact of special rights initiatives on all businesses and property owners, with a particularly negative impact on faith- based and faith-inspired businesses and property owners.
II. The negative impact of special rights initiatives on every citizen's constitutionally protected rights to freedom of expression, freedom of religion and freedom of assembly.
III. The negative impact of the practice of homosexuality on the individuals who practice it and on the rest of the society.
The main multifaceted emphasis of the group is to defend Traditional Marriage as 'between one man and one woman', to respond to the controversy at the University of Notre Dame regarding homosexual activism at several levels, to respond to 'special rights for homosexuals' ordinances as they come forward in the Region and to facilitate help and ministry for those suffering from the ill effects of the homosexual lifestyle.
400 Students Stay Home in MO on Day of Silence, 4-25-08From Kansas City, MO
Day Of Silence Causes Controversy At School
RAYMORE, Mo. -- A controversial demonstration at a high school had some students taking a vow of silence and others staying home Friday.
It turned out to be a peaceful day at Ray Pec High School, but that didn't keep a lot of students from deciding to stay away.
There was extra security on hand at Ray Pec High School after rumors began circulating that there was going to be trouble because some students wanted to participate in a day of silence.
It worried a ninth-grader's mother enough to let her stay home.
Randall Wright said she stayed home because, "I really am uncomfortable with that stuff, and I thought it was wrong they were going to have a gay day and we can't pray."
Raymore-Peculiar School District spokeswoman Michele Donahoe said there was a lot of misinformation going around about what the day was all about. . .
A large number of students were out of school Friday, school district officials said.
More than 400 high school students stayed home, but they said Friday was also senior skip day, so a lot of seniors had already planned to take the day off.
