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.

Important Pro-family Victories in MA!

by MFI News

Wonderful news!  Late last week, we learned that the Assisted Suicide bills in the MA legislature have both FAILED.  Technically, they were “sent to study,” which effectively kills them for the remainder of the 2017-2018 legislative session.  Suicide advocates will now have to refile legislation in January of 2019 and begin the whole process anew.  […]

Transgenderism: A Runaway Train?

by MFI News

The transgender movement continues to ratchet up the cultural pressure.  Two weeks ago, I shared with you the statistic that 1.5 percent of Bay State teenagers identify as transgender.  That is an alarming number, particularly given the common claim that only .3 (as of 2011) to .6 (as of 2016) percent of the general population […]

Will you be considered a ‘highly rejecting’ parent?

by MFI News

Last week I attended a contentious meeting of the Westford School Committee.  They were considering adopting a new transgender student policy.  The content of that policy was, sadly, not surprising.  It contained the usual mandate for biological boys to be given access to the girls’ locker room and play on girls-only varsity teams.  It also […]

Yesterday’s Supreme Court win

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 […]

I Need Your Help to Fight the Counseling Ban

by MFI News

Last week I wrote to you about the threat of the Sexual Orientation Counseling Ban circulating on Beacon Hill.  Well, I was at the State House yesterday afternoon for the Celebration of Life Day (more on that below) when I received an email from a friendly legislator informing me that the public hearing of the Counseling Ban […]

Harvard thinks biology is violence

by MFI News

Last week I wrote to you about the most recent attack on Gordon College and the unrelenting push of the LGBTQ agenda into Christian academia.  As I was discussing this with a fellow alumnus, he remarked that if Gordon were forced to give up its unique Christian character, it would be just one more liberal […]

MFI’s Michael King Shares His Experience with the Free Speech Bus

by MFI News

Yesterday, I was in Boston to see the the orange “Free Speech Bus” roll into town, making stops at City Hall, the State House, and Harvard Square.  The bus had a simple message: “Boys are boys and always will be.  Girls are girls and always will be.” In response, about two dozen protesters from the […]
