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. See www.VictimAssistance.info.

Please call and write to every South Bend Common Council member, as well as the Mayor, to express your disapproval and opposition to amending the Human Rights Ordinance to include "sexual orientation" in it's non-discrimination statement.

11/26/07 Unintended Consequences: Post Sugarcoats Homosexual Thuggery Against Philadelphia Boy Scouts
The special rights ordinance was a bad idea in 2006 and it is still a bad idea today . . . The Council was right to turn down the ordinance then and will be right in turning it down again. If you truly care about those suffering from same sex attraction as we do, join us in lovingly opposing the homosexual agenda and offering help and healing to those willing to experience freedom through Jesus Christ. I have been ministering to homosexuals for many years and have lost friends to Aids too. There are many former homosexuals living happy healthy lives today. Those who continue in this dangerous, destructive and deadly lifestyle are likely to suffer the consequences of an unnecessarily early and painful death through medical and biological complications associated with the addictive sexual behaviors of homosexuality...

Is there no end to where this campaign for special rights is leading in public policy?!

8/15/06 Now Polygamists Are Rallying For "Special Rights" Too!!!
When we originally opposed the changes to the ordinance governing the human rights commission we pointed out that extending special rights and special status to anyone based on sexual practice would be a bad precedent. We also suggested that any number of groups wanting to be recognized for their brand of aberrant sexual behavior could be next in line. Now we are seeing the Polygamists come 'out of the closet' to publicly rally for their special rights too! They too are aimed at young people and trying to turn polygamy's most tragic victims --the children -- into its advocates as we have seen other sexual movements do. Read more...

7/22/06 Just say No to Homosexual Activists . . . Campaign against the Scouts is an attack on their Constitutional Rights!
Council Members who voted "No" on Bill #29-06 are protectors of the community! Don't be swayed by the verbal tantrums of the homosexual activists. The Community stands behind the Council Members who said "No" to SBE, the homosexual agenda and Bill # 29-06. If this discussion is now going to be an unending debate, then sobeit. It will be much easier to remind voters in next year's City Elections just where every elected official made their stand. I am confident that Hoosier Families will embrace Hoosier values in their public servants. Read more...
7/19/06 NoSpecialRights.Net Action Alert
Mayor Steve Luecke announced publicly that he was prepared to sign an Executive Order binding the City to the provisions of the Ordinance that were voted down by the majority of the Common Council Members. Unfortunately the 4 members of the Council who voted for the special rights ordinance (Bill # 29-06) have emboldened both the Mayor and the homosexual activists in their aggressiveness to try to supercede the will of the people. Can you imagine the cost of retrofitting the City County Building with transgendered bathrooms? or the forcing of all City employees to accept homosexual sex acts as normal? Read more...

5/18/06 WFRN Radio News Today
Debate is raging in South Bend over gay rights. A City Council committee last night heard arguments over proposed changes to South Bend's Human Rights ordinance, which would add sexual orientation to the city code and give special rights to homosexuals. The change is designed to protect gays and lesbians from discrimination when looking for a job, education and housing, but opponents don't feel homosexuals should get special treatment. Former South Bend TV news anchor Jay Dunlap's brother, Tim, died at the age of 27 after a homosexual lifestyle, and Dunlap says it's not healthy and that homosexuals' life spans are less than the national average. Plus, he says changing city code could have a damaging affect on church-based programs, like Catholic Charities, which help find homes for unwanted kids. Catholic Charities in Boston has been forced to shutdown its adoption operations because of Massachusetts' law that allows same-sex marriages. The charity would have to allow gay couples to adopt to stay open. The South Bend City Council is expected to vote on the issue June 26th.
5/18/06 News Conference Friday 5-19-06 at 11:30 a.m. at 1919 south Michigan St., South Bend
NoSpecialRights.Net is having a News Conference to address Homosexual Activists use of slurs and campaign of character assassination interrupting the respectful tone of the public debate thus far. NoSpecialRights.Net will be asking for a public apology and a public repudiation of publicized comments.

NoSpecialRigths.Net leaders are considering a defamation lawsuit in absence of public apology and public repudiation of comments. Details and documentation of specific defamatory comments will be covered at the News Conference.

" It is time for the demonizing tactics of the extreme left to be called to account. No one should be bullied out of the public discourse because the so called tolerance movement can not tolerate anyone who disagrees with them no matter how respectfully that disagreement is communicated. The comments published by homosexual advocates in this case in support of the proposed South Bend Ordinance changes are outrageous . . . " --Patrick Mangan

4/25/06 Message to South Bend Common Council Regarding Special Rights For Homosexuals & GLBT Initiative
As you can see from the enclosed article regarding the CDC Warning issued late last Fall, the practice of homosexual sex is a key part of the rise in the spread of syphilis. To quote Dr. Valdiserri, "The cost to the healthcare system is $13 Billion a year". May I humbly submit that those are 13 Billion reasons not to try to give special status and therefore special rights to homosexuals and others practicing high risk sex. Read more...

01/19/05 Michiana Point of View - South Bend Tribune
Patrick Mangan
While proponents of an initiative to change the City of South Bend's Human Rights Commission's antidiscrimination statement to include 'sexual orientation' may be well intended, they are misguided. Everyone is covered by current civil rights legislation that Dr. Martin Luther King , Jr. championed. What is being proposed now is that special status and special rights be given to individuals based on their chosen homosexual sexual practices. Read more...
10/25/04 Letter to South Bend Common Council
Joseph P. Sergio, Ph.D.
I am writing in response to a public request to gather information toward a proposal to add sexual orientation and gender identity to the ordinance governing the South Bend Human Rights Commission. While I assume that everyone is well intentioned, and I appreciate the concern for possible discrimination against anyone, I have deep concerns about the direction that is being taken and about the negative consequences of offering "special rights" based solely on someone’s private sexual behavior.
