MFI Remembers Two Voices for the Family

by MFI News

The pro-family movement experienced two great losses this past week: Friday, February 17, renowned Catholic intellect and prolific author Michael Novak passed away.  I had the pleasure of meeting him just last spring, when he spoke at a small event for friends of MFI.  He was gracious and had a rich sense of humor.  He was also […]

by MFI News

I am happy to report that on Wednesday, the federal Departments of Justice and Education repealed the Obama era policy mandating public schools to force students into the humiliating situation of sharing showers, restrooms and locker rooms with members of the opposite sex.  This repeal is a victory for common sense and for the privacy […]

by MFI News

(The NewBostonPost described it as “Hymns vs. Obscenities.”) Unfortunately, that then meant […]

TAKE ACTION: Tell President Trump to Protect Religious Liberty

by MFI News

As recent challenges to our religious liberty here in MA have shown, people of faith need protection from hostile government bureaucrats and activist judges. Therefore, I am grateful that President Trump has promised to protect our Constitutional freedom of religion.

We agree with radical feminists (on something)

by MFI News

“Radical feminists” typically differ from pro-family advocates on many issues. So, why are the Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF), a self-described radical feminist group, and the Family Policy Alliance (FPA), MFI’s national public policy affiliate, teaming up? Because they both recognize that preserving women’s safety in private spaces is critically important (as well as common sense). This week, […]
