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.
URGENT ACTION ALERT!
Please forward this to everyone you know who cares about the family. It is Urgent that we have immediate calls to the Governor to let him know how profoundly disappointed we are in his latest actions supporting the homosexual agenda by supporting the gay pride event in Indianapolis and by failing to support the marriage amendment in Indiana. It is the height of hypocrisy to claim that the marriage amendment is too divisive to support and then to besmirch the dignity of the office of the Governor with support for such a debasing event. To profamily values voters his actions are an outrage.
He owes Indiana voters an apology for supporting this appalling event and betraying Hoosier families in this way.

Indiana Governor Shuns Marriage Protection: Welcomes Gay Pride Festival and Parade InsteadContact Governor Mitch Daniels Today!
In a very disheartening move, Governor Mitch Daniels has shunned the importance of protecting traditional marriage and embraced an Indianapolis "gay pride" parade all in the course of a week.
For three years Governor Mitch Daniels has been virtually silent about the Indiana Marriage Protection Amendment (SJR 7), which stalled in an Indiana House Committee this year on a tie vote. The amendment protecting Indiana's laws defining marriage as between a man and a woman, can return in 08 and still go before Hoosier voters next fall for their approval or rejection. However, the Governor told reporters on Friday that the marriage amendment would not be part of his re-election campaign. "I do believe there are other things more important to our future, at least other things that a governor and the people around him can try to work on," he said. "And, secondly, I'm always trying to bring this state together, and we don't have, I don't believe, the luxury of division."
Yet, six days earlier the Governor was not concerned about divisiveness when his letter to Indy Pride welcoming homosexuals attending a festival and parade was published in the gay pride program. The annual Indianapolis gay pride event featured such apparently non-divisive items as drag queens on stage, men in leather bondage outfits kissing on the street, and a parade Grand Marshall who was honored for his authoring of a stage play and film called "Southern Baptist Sissies." Yet, somehow standing for the importance of both husbands and wives, mothers and fathers to the family unit is not important, and just too divisive!
You can decide if the Governor's endorsement of a gay pride parade and festival last week was mainstream and unifying by viewing these pictures of the Indy Pride event taken by homosexual activists. Decide for yourself if this is something that Hoosier voters would support far more than the broad support marriage protection amendments have received in 27 states. (The average vote of support from residents in these states is 67%)
