BOSTON, April 17, 2014—The Free Justina Coalition and members of the Pelletier family will hold an Easter service on Sunday, April 20, from 3:00-4:00 P.M., outside of the Wayside Youth and Family facility where Justina is being held (1 Frederick Abbott Way, Framingham, MA 01701).
Justina, who has been in custody of Massachusetts DCF for 14 months, has not been allowed to attend Mass on Christmas Eve, Christmas, or Easter; nor has she been allowed to be with her family on these special holidays.
“It is an outrage that for the past 14 months Justina Pelletier has not been allowed to practice her Catholic faith, attend mass, see a priest, or spend religious holidays with her family,” said Rev. Patrick Mahoney, a spokesperson for the Pelletier family. “It shows an utter disregard by Massachusetts DCF toward Justina’s basic Constitutional rights and contempt for basic freedoms that should be afforded to every American citizen.”
DCF’s decision to prevent Justina from practicing her religious beliefs is in violation of several federal laws. Recently, the Pelletiers traveled to Washington, D.C. to discuss these civil rights violations with members of Congress.
Mahoney continued: “It is tragic that every young person in the Wayside Youth Facility will be able to spend time with their family and celebrate Easter except one. That is Justina Pelletier. It appears that DCF is punishing Justina and the Pelletier family rather than trying to reunite them, which is their stated purpose. The only solution to this nightmare is to return Justina Pelletier back into the loving arms of her family.”

The Rapoza Report
“Shining the light of truth on the offerings of liberal pabulum” – Linda Rapoza
Warning to liberals & RINOs: This column is not for the faint of heart!
Elephants & Other Patriots,
The clock’s running out. Our constitutional rights are being trampled, our freedom of speech and association are being assaulted, and the fruits of our labor are being redistributed on an ever grander scale. Similarities between this regime and those of Cuba, the Third Reich and the old Soviet Union are unmistakable, but shut up or you too could become an enemy of the state.
The iron fist of the current administration was always in place, waiting for the right time to be released. I wrote several “Reports” back in ‘08 about a presidential candidate raised by communists, mentored by communists, endorsed by communists, educated by Marxists, and befriended and groomed by Alinsky-ites. Did someone expect Thomas Jefferson to show up at the inauguration? Republicans were tongue-tied as those who carried him to victory knew and expected they would be.
Political correctness is just a polite term for fascism. (Fascism? Oh, Linda, you’re so extreme.) I’ve just been saying this for, like… forever. The Rip Van Winkles of the Republican Party are just now awakening to the conquering mentality of a government gone wild. (Uh-oh. When did this happen? Well, it happened while you were sleeping. You were so comfortable in that pot of simmering water that you never felt a thing as they slowly turned up the heat.) And you know why they turned up the heat? Because they knew they could! ,,,,,CLICK TO READ MORE

MIKE HUCKABEE HOPES TO SAVE JUSTINA PELLETIER – MassResistance Takes Leadership Role, MFI still (mostly) MIA
After once again doing a segment on his nationally broadcast show SATURDAY EVENING, APRIL 12, 2014…
MIKE HUCKABEE showed an exclusive, smuggled video of Justina Pelletier in which the girl says “I WANT TO GO HOME, NOW.”
If you watch it, and you have a
soul, you WILL cry.
Mr. HUCKABEE “I promise I’m going to stay on this story, until it meets a happy conclusion.”
Mike Huckabee has more compassion, more caring, more concern, and has done more to expose the obscene action of Olga Roche (should be in jail), Deval Patrick (should be in jail) Robert DeLeo (should be in jail) than anyone else except MassResistance, the ACTIVE FAMILY group which is nationally know for stepping up and fighting for the underdog, and refusing to back down.
UPDATE to My posting below:
It appears I only received 3 out of 7 e-mails MFI has sent which have mentioned Justina Pelletier case since February of this year. I, like others, await to be able to find some mention of the Pelletier situation and any actions
on their website, in any fashion. Once again, a search turned up nada, but there COULD be something buried or hidden there someplace. They’re great folks, so they’re probably busy with other family matters and the upcoming Easter Tea. (Wouldn’t it be nice if they extended an invitation and helped secure a get-out-kidnapping pass for Justina so she could attend it with her mom? Just a thought.)
Someone has to say it, so I will, and, please, for disclosure, I like and respect (or had) the folks at Mass Family Institute, BUT, WHERE IN HELL ARE THEY?????? (cue the crickets folks…).
Has MFI tanked after the recent retirement of their long-term executive, the courageous Chris Mineau? You would THINK they would be at the forefront of this issue. You would THINK they would be extremely active….many have asked,’ are they just too afraid to offend the politically powerful?’ We await their entry into this issue. Thus far, they have issued three e-mails of which we are aware: 1 to announce a press conference; 1 to announce the cancellation of that press conference, and 1 to announce their concern….and NOTHING ON THEIR WEBSITE!
