BREAKING: Major progress on the battle for privacy, safety and freedom

by MFI News

I have great news to share with you on two fronts today. First, early this morning, our national partners at Alliance Defending Freedom filed a lawsuit on behalf of four Massachusetts churches in response to the transgender bathroom law’s unprecedented and unconstitutional intrusion into the First Amendment rights of our pastors, priests and houses of worship.  If […]

New Rules on MA Bathroom Law

by MFI News

I had the opportunity to speak to a gathering of about 75 pastors this week on the issue of religious liberty.  Specifically, they wanted to know about the bathroom bill, and what it means for their churches and communities.  I explained the threat that it poses to “houses of worship,” as defined by the MA Attorney General and encouraged […]

LGBTQ and “We don’t know who will be next…”

by MFI News

The media is starting to take notice of the public outcry on the Transgender Bathroom & Shower Bill here in MA.  Politico interviewed Renew Mass Coalition Director Chanel Prunier on the effort to make our pro-family perspective heard loud and clear by Governor Baker. In fact, as the article notes, the bill still hasn’t made it to […]

“Hold-it Healey” is only Trans-tolerant

by MFI News

The past two weeks in MA have witnessed the explosion of transgender power and hubris onto the political stage.  First, at a LGBT networking event in Boston, Governor Charlie Baker was booed off the stage by outraged transgender activists demanding that he come out in favor of a bill that would, among other things, allow men to […]

What Comes After “T”

by MFI News

Finally, just as we saw this transgender fight descend upon us immediately after the same-sex marriage decision in Massachusetts, (and the same is happening nationally) it is becoming increasingly clear that LGBT activists will not stop at the “T.” Noah Feldman, professor of constitutional law at Harvard University, had an article in Bloomberg News last week arguing that […]

I ‘mis-gendered’ Bruce Jenner

by MFI News

Last week on NECN, I referred to men’s Olympic decathlon champion Bruce Jenner as, well, a man.  Apparently, I am guilty of having “misgendered” him, because we are all now expected to call him “Caitlyn” and refer to him as a “her.”  Unfortunately, this sort of nonsense cannot be dismissed as the petulant antics of […]

Tar Heels Halt Transgender Assault on Bathrooms and its Implications for MA

by MFI News

As you likely heard in the news this week, last Wednesday evening North Carolina Governor McCrory signed into law a bill that ensures men cannot go into women’s bathrooms, locker rooms and showers because these settings are limited to persons of the same biological sex.  It also clarifies that the state, not local cities and municipalities, […]

MFI Weighs in on RFRA

by MFI News

Last week I was called upon to debate the Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act on NECN.  You can watch that six-minute segment here.  My opponent’s strategy was to say the word ‘discrimination’ as much as possible, particularly when faced with questions he didn’t want to answer.  Unfortunately, this is true for so many in the conflict between […]
