- 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.

Please write and call to respectfully but firmly convey your concerns to Notre Dame President Father Jenkins and the University Board of Trustees.
UPDATE:     BATTLE FOR HEART & SOUL of NOTRE DAME PETITION (PDF file) << click here for details >>
Please write and call Notre Dame President Fr. Jenkins at (574) 631-5000 to reconsider his tragic decision and to protect the Notre Dame Family from the misguided efforts of those who would promote homosexuality ( ND QUEER Film Festival & Gender Relations Center materials and rainbow materials ) and vulgar expressions of the arts (Vagina Monologues) in the name of the University dedicated to the holiness of Mary, the Mother of Jesus.

Letters can be sent to:

University President
Notre Dame, IN 46556

Please also write and call to respectfully but firmly convey your concerns to the University Board of Trustees as well (574) 631-5000 Ext. 7633. It appears that the real discussion among Alumni and ND Parents is just getting started and that Fr. Jenkins' "Closing Statement . . ." has merely become the end of the beginning of the Alumni and Parents scrutiny of the apparent promotion of inappropriate sexual behavior at the University.

Letters can be sent to:
Richard Notebart
Chairman of the Board
Office of the Board Secretary
405 Main Building
Notre Dame, IN 46556

Please contact Bishop D'Arcy to encourage him for holding Notre Dame accountable. Let him know how important you believe his ongoing involvment in this issue is as the voice of leadership in the local Church:

Letters can be sent to:
Most Reverend John M. D'Arcy
Diocese of Ft. Wayne / South Bend
1103 S. Calhoun St.
P. O. Box 390
Ft. Wayne, IN 46801

When many concerned Alumni, faculty, students and parents spoke out against Fr. Jenkins' failure to return Notre Dame to it's spiritual foundations a couple of years ago, the Board of Trustees gave him a vote of confidence. Now here we go again... Perhaps the President's role is not the only one that should be scrutinized. Now, serious questions are being raised about the judgement of the Dean of the College of Arts & Letters, as well as regarding the thought process of the Chairmen of the Anthropology and Sociology Departments. What a profound contrast between these modern educators and early Notre Dame educator and Congregation of the Holy Cross Founder Fr. Basil Moreau.

"Education is the art of helping young people to completeness; For the Christian this means that education is helping a young person to be more like Christ, the model of all Christians."
- Moreau, Christian Education 10

"We shall always place education side by side with instruction; the mind will not be cultivated at the expense of the heart. While we prepare useful citizens for society, we shall likewise do our utmost to prepare citizens for Heaven."
- Moreau, Circular Letter 36

Notre Dame should live up to this whole-hearted pledge of Moreau. The Bishops understand this and that is why they are being "instructive" to Notre Dame's entire family with their principled actions. The question we must ask is "if Notre Dame is not a good place for Bishops to gather, why should we send our children there?"
