- 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.

Vagina Monologues Forced to Leave Notre Dame

Vagina Monologues Forced to Leave Notre Dame: Academic Departments Refuse to Sponsor the Vulgar Pereformance The Vagina Monologues has lost the status of being performed on the Notre Dame campus as academic departments refuse to sponsor the lewd and controversial play featuring lesbian themes. The controversy over the 'V' Monologues and the Queer Film festival had led to calls for the President's resignation or ouster. Profamily alumni and key faculty voices were heard in the debate. Groups were even formed to counter the liberal actions of the faculty. (See www.NoSpecialRights.Net for more info and for a chronicle of the public debate). Profamily alumni and faculty were profoundly disappointed when the newly appointed Notre Dame President Rev. John Jenkins failed to ban the two most obviously anti-faith productions outright. The public dialogue over the Vagina Monologues and Queer Film Festival has become symbolic of the wider debate over the alleged pervasive secularization of many aspects of the world famous University. Although there is not evidence of an institutional transformation at the University yet, the fruits of the heightened scrutiny of University practices and beliefs, have yielded some early progress. This is an important step back from the growing unrestrained promotion of the homosexual agenda at the University of Notre Dame in recent years!

Whether there was a change of heart over the 'V' monologues among the academic departments or whether it simply became to controversial at a University with a Christian mission is yet to be seen. One thing is certain, those shining the light of scrutiny on the crude public performances have at least an initial victory to build on and young minds, at least for this year, will not be subject to the aggressive on campus assault on modesty and sexual purity that the play represents. Without a Department's sponsorship, it is no longer an official University event. Without the University status behind it, it can not be advertised in the student newspaper and can not be presented as either explicitly or implicitly endorsed by the University.
