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 […]
