- 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.

Pro-polygamy rally planned for next week

Teenagers from Utah's polygamous communities plan to stage a rally next week to stand up for their families. The pro-polygamy group Principle Voices is organizing the Aug. 19 rally at the Salt Lake City-County building, but it will feature mostly youth speakers.

"Our teenagers really did want to defend their lifestyle," rally organizer Anne Wilde told the Deseret Morning News on Wednesday. "Often they're perceived as the victims. They want to say no, they don't consider themselves the victims, they feel like this should be a free choice."

Members of the Apostolic United Brethren, Centennial Park, Davis Co-operative Society and independent fundamentalist communities are expected to be in attendance.

Wilde said the rally is also in response to the heat put on Fundamentalist LDS Church leader Warren Jeffs. "Maybe that's exactly why," she said. "So that people will know that in other communities there isn't control in marriages."

The fugitive polygamist leader is on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list. He is charged in Utah and Arizona with sex crimes accusing him of forcing teenage girls into polygamous marriages with older men. Federal prosecutors have charged Jeffs with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution. A $100,000 bounty is being offered for information leading to his arrest.
