Great news for religious liberty today!  The Department of Justice released a 25-page memo for all executive departments and agencies outlining federal protections for religious liberty.  In it, Attorney General Jeff Sessions made the following powerful statement: “The free exercise of religion ‘is in its nature an unalienable right’ because the duty owed to one’s […]

This Thursday: Be a part of Bring Your Bible to School Day!

by MFI News

When my younger son was in first grade, he came home and announced, very matter-of-factly, that “you can’t talk about God in school.” As you can imagine, he didn’t get that idea from me, and I quickly corrected him! Disturbingly, many teachers and school administrators don’t know what the law allows students to do or […]

Assisted Suicide Hearing on Beacon Hill a Success for Pro-lifers

by MFI News

This week’s legislative hearing on physician-assisted suicide was one of the strongest pro-life showings I’ve seen on Beacon Hill. Working with a broad coalition of both local and national activists on this issue, MFI helped ensure that opposition to assisted suicide had a large presence at the hearing.

Every life is worth fighting for: help stop assisted suicide in MA

by MFI News

On Tuesday, I’ll be at the State House testifying against the imposition of Doctor Prescribed Suicide in Massachusetts. Two years ago, when this same noxious bill was being considered on Beacon Hill, I was introduced to the story of fellow Marine J.J. Hanson. He was diagnosed with the same aggressive form of brain cancer that […]

This past summer, MFI’s Michael King had the privilege of speaking at Camp Constitution, a local MA ministry working to enhance the understanding of our Judeo-Christian moral heritage.

The first step to defunding Planned Parenthood in MA

by MFI News

On the other end of the life spectrum, I’m happy to say that signature petitions for the MA Stop Taxpayer Funded Abortions ballot question are now available. If successful, this signature drive would put a question on the November 2018 ballot (alongside the bathroom bill repeal) to make taxpayer funded abortions no longer a “constitutional […]

Help us stop assisted suicide

I know many of you were involved in the 2012 statewide ballot referendum on assisted suicide, and over 1.5 million of you and your neighbors voted successfully to protect the sanctity of life. Thanks to a broad coalition of churches and faith leaders, as well as members of the medical profession and disability community, we […]

When the Medical Profession Can No Longer Be Trusted

by MFI News

I purposefully don’t ask you to sign a lot of petitions because there are always so many going around, BUT I believe this one is important.  Kris Mineau and I have written to you in the past about our friend Dr. Paul Church, an accomplished urologist who has been blackballed by Boston hospitals for stating […]

Something GOOD on Beacon Hill!

by MFI News

When I drive into Boston to go to the State House, it’s usually to face yet another uphill battle to defend our shared values. It can be daunting at times and, frankly, a bit overwhelming. Part of what helps me stay positive is knowing some of the rich religious heritage that is literally carved into the […]
