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, […]

What exactly did President Trump sign yesterday?

by MFI News

Yesterday was a significant moment for religious liberty in our country.  For starters, it was the National Day of Prayer, with people of faith praying for our nation and our government from coast to coast.  This included our own State House in Boston, where MFI joined dozens of pastors in covering Beacon Hill in much […]

Sex, Religious Liberty and Gordon College

by MFI News

As you may have heard, Gordon College is once again in the cross-hairs of LGBT activists.  Sadly, the instigator is one of their own professors, social work faculty member Margaret DeWeese-Boyd.  She claims she was denied promotion because she “vocally and publicly challenged” Gordon’s Biblical prohibition on “homosexual practice.” In fact, she recounts in her […]

by MFI News

Like many of you, I was eager to see if President Trump would make good on his pledge to nominate a conservative Supreme Court Justice to replace the late Antonin Scalia.  I was therefore very happy to hear the president announce last night that he is nominating Judge Neil Gorsuch.  Several weeks ago, I had […]

Not just a gummy bear…

by MFI News

My wife showed me this article last night.  Apparently, two middle school kids in Framingham had to be hospitalized after ingesting marijuana-laced “edibles” on the school bus.  This is exactly one of the scenarios we’ve been warning about with the new legalization of recreational marijuana.  The pot industry deliberately infuses candy in order to attract children, and it does […]

Victory for religious freedom in MA!

by MFI News

Yesterday, we celebrated a real win for religious freedom.  Both MA Attorney General Maura Healey and the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (MCAD) voluntarily reversed their new transgender polices to acknowledge the constitutional right of churches to teach and operate consistently with their faith.  As many of you know, in September of this year, the unelected […]

MFI Stands for Your Religious Freedom

by MFI News

Earlier this week, I was down in DC at a national strategy conference hosted by our legal ministry friends at Alliance Defending Freedom.  This gave me the opportunity to spend some more time with Steve O’Ban, the ADF attorney I’ve been working with on the transgender church lawsuit.  As I shared with you last month, ADF […]
