Liberty Counsel Announces the Adopt a Liberal™ Deck of Cards
Washington, DC – Liberty Counsel has produced a deck of cards, similar to baseball trading cards, as part of its Adopt a Liberal™ program, which garnered international attention by encouraging prayer for those in leadership to restore poor leaders to right thinking. One side of each card displays the picture of a liberal, and the back lists some of their liberal positions or policies that negatively impact life, liberty and family. The cards will be offered at the Conservative Political Action Conference beginning today, with 51 cards in each package, which is one card short of a full deck! The cards help remind people of specific ways they can pray for each liberal. Cards can even be traded among friends.
Liberty Counsel has also produced a bumper sticker that reads: “Have you prayed for a liberal today?” While the Adopt a Liberal™ program has a humorous side, it also has a serious side. It is designed to encourage people to pray for our leaders. It is a prayer-in-action program, based on the words of the Apostle Paul to Timothy to pray for “all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.” I Timothy 2:1-3.
The deck of liberals includes Democrats, Republicans, Independents, and those who are not political leaders but whose leadership and actions affect our lives. The Adopt a Liberal™ program urges people “to pray daily for the liberal(s) of your choice, so each can become a good influence on our Nation’s culture. Prayer is powerful! It allows God to change the minds of those for whom we are praying.” The list includes President Barack Obama, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Congressman Barney Frank, Science Czar John Holdren, Senator Olympia Snowe, Barry Lynn, and many others. There is even the “Unknown Liberal,” which allows people to nominate a liberal of their choice. A partial list of liberals can be found at www.LC.org.
Mathew D. Staver, Founder of Liberty Counsel and Dean of Liberty University School of Law, commented: “The admonition to pray for our leaders is one that we take seriously. It is easy to berate those in authority and more difficult to pray for them, but that is what the Bible commands us to do. Our leaders affect life, liberty and family, and we aim to restore poor leaders to right thinking. We believe in miracles. The Apostle Paul experienced a radical change of heart on the road to Damascus. Indeed, God is the ultimate trump card.”
