Casino Repeal Campaign Underway- VOTE YES on QUESTION 3!

On November 4th, after 3 years of hard work by MFI and a grass-roots alliance of casino gambling opponents, Massachusetts citizens will have the final say on whether or not to have casinos as part of the Bay State culture. The front page of  Sunday’s Boston Globe featured MFI’s involvement in this great campaign.

Why are we doing this? Because predatory gambling destroys families! Casinos thrive on video slot machines that are proven to be more addictive than crack cocaine. If we lose on November 4th, everyone in the state will be within 50 miles of a casino and addiction rates will double. Expanded gambling poses a significant danger to families and children with increases in crime, bankruptcies, home foreclosures, domestic violence, divorce, depression and suicide.

The final push to educate our communities to vote YES on QUESTION 3 is well underway. Go to www.repealthecasinodeal.org to learn more on why we must vote YES to repeal the existing casino law, YES to ban casinos, YES on 3 to be Casino Free!!!

The Las Vegas casino conglomerates are spending millions on TV advertising that we must overcome in the grass-roots of our communities.

Churches can be pro-active in support of a Ballot Question because it involves an issue, not a political candidate. Churches can hold educational forums and seminars, do phone-banking, actively participate in door-to-door canvassing/get-out-the-vote efforts and even contribute money to a Ballot Question campaign! Go to www.faithforrepeal.com for more details on how your church can be involved to help achieve the victory on November 4th.

Above all we cherish your prayers to defeat this Philistine casino behemoth.

Remember in November: YES 3 to be casino free!
