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.
Indiana Defense of Marriage Amendment One Step Closer to PassageThis is the Indiana State Senate Roll Call Vote on SJR 7 --The Indiana Defense of Marriage Amendment: http://www.in.gov/legislative/bills/2007/PDF/Srollcal/0086.PDF.pdf
It passed the full Senate by a vote of 39 to 10!!!!
It was disappointing to see Senator John Broden's opposition to the Amendment.
