NoSpecialRights.net - Lovingly opposing the homosexual agenda...

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.

"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.

The issue in South Bend has been developing over the last couple of years and has centered on Councilwoman Charlotte Pfiefer's well intentioned but misguided efforts to make changes to the City's ordinance regarding the Human Rights Commission. More specifically to add the term "sexual orientation" to the non discrimination statement. This, if passed in any way would create various hardships on business and property owners, create sharp divisions in the community, and could very well lead to a series of costly and unproductive lawsuits. It is also completely unnecessary since all men and women already have protection from discrimination under the current civil rights laws. It is also a legal folly to try to create a special class based entirely on sexual practice and behavior. Profamily and probusiness leaders have been receiving complaints from the local community since the issue first began to be discussed publicly.

The issue at Notre Dame is a gravely serious issue to the entire Notre Dame family around the world, as well as to the Catholic Church and to some extent Christians everywhere because of the University's prominence and voice among all universities and colleges. The battle is decades old and involves everything from the faithfulness of the University to its founding vision and distinctly Catholic mission to its ability to create and execute sound policies amid the growing discontent of the Alumni, parents, members of the CSC Order and from faithful Catholics and Christians everywhere who are voicing their disappointment over the University's controversial and apparent accommodation of homosexual activists. Some have even suggested that the University has gone so far as to create a hostile environment for students and employees who oppose homosexuality on moral and religious grounds. It is realy a struggle for the heart and soul of Notre Dame.

Fr. Jenkins much anticipated decision on the Vagina Monologues and ND Queer Film Festival have left many of the Notre Dame faithful asking serious questions about the direction of the University and Fr. Jenkins' future at Notre Dame. Every Alumnus in contact with us is deeply disappointed with Jenkins' decision and profoundly disappointed in the overall direction of the University toward accommodation instead of lovingly opposing the homosexual agenda in every way."
