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.

R.I. bishop blasts gay union recognition By Staff and wire reports Friday, February 23, 2007PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The spiritual leader of the nation’s most heavily Roman Catholic state sharply criticized Attorney General Patrick Lynch yesterday for urging Rhode Island to recognize same-sex marriages performed in Massachusetts.
“It is clear that the attorney general’s thinking on this issue has been influenced by the relentless gay agenda so prevalent in our state,” Providence Bishop Thomas Tobin said in a written statement.
Lynch, a Catholic, released his opinion this week, and it answered a question posed to him by authorities at the Board of Governors for Higher Education. Board officials wanted to know whether they should recognize the unions of several gay employees who were married in Massachusetts, the only state were such unions are legal.
