Your Daughter, Somebody Else’s Son

by MFI News

“This is a bill that would allow the state to take away your daughter and make her someone else’s son.” That’s how I summarized the anti-Christian Counseling Ban bill in a groundbreaking article by Matt McDonald in this week’s New Boston Post.  It is not an exaggeration.  Quoted in the article is the mother who […]

Thank you for making Lobby Day a success!

by MFI News

On Tuesday of this week, we held our annual Pro-Family Lobby Day in Boston. Pastors and concerned citizens from churches all over the Commonwealth (including a bus from Springfield!) came to learn about key legislation affecting parental rights and religious freedom. After lunch, we marched up to the State House to meet face to face […]

Christian parents lose custody of child over gender identity dispute

by MFI News

I’ve been warning about this for several years now, and it has finally happened. The state has taken a child away from parents who refuse to consent to their daughter receiving cross-sex hormones for gender identity transition. That was last week in a courtroom in Ohio. It could happen here in MA tomorrow. This is […]

The man in the stiletto heels has a plan for your child

by MFI News

In Yesterday’s NY Times, Samuel Brinton, the discredited poster child for Christian Counseling Bans, was given a platform to tell the world what he’s really after. When he came to the State House in Boston, he gave an emotional and tear-filled testimony about the alleged physical abuse he received from therapists trying to “make him […]

Counseling Ban Update: You did it!

by MFI News

I have good news to report on the Counseling Ban legislation!  Both the MA House and Senate held their final formal sessions for 2017 this week and the bill did NOT come out of committee for a vote.  This means that the bill cannot be voted on until 2018 at the earliest.  While the inner […]

By late this afternoon, we had confirmation that the bill has moved out of committee with a new number, HB 4014, but the earliest it will come up is now Monday. This tells […]

Transgenderism IS child abuse

by MFI News

Over the past week, two friends of MFI have made national headlines for boldly telling the truth about transgenderism’s devastating impact on children.  Walt Heyer (whose testimony before the MA legislature last month can be viewed here) published an article in the Federalist this week highlighting the tragic case of a sixth-grade girl who committed […]

Yesterday’s Supreme Court win

by MFI News

My colleagues at Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) won a major victory for religious liberty at the Supreme Court yesterday.  The Court ruled in Trinity Lutheran that the state cannot exclude churches and other faith-based organizations from a government program simply because of their religious identity.  Trinity Lutheran had applied to a state program in Missouri, […]

Fight Back Against the Counseling Ban!

by MFI News

Yesterday’s hearing on the Counseling Ban bill should be a wake-up call to families.  The LGBTQ lobby was out in full force in an effort to push through legislation that would prevent children from getting the help they need to deal with unwanted sexual feelings or gender confusion.  After MFI raised the alarm about this […]

Dear Friend of the Family, At 3:30 Friday afternoon I received a call from a Fox25 reporter asking if she could come by and interview me about the Counseling Ban legislation within the next hour.  I was grateful for the opportunity to raise awareness on this critical issue, and I think the news segment came […]
