Introducing a powerful new prayer initiative that will soon have many thousands of participants...

Liberty Counsel is proud to introduce -- and invite you to participate in -- a vital new prayer program solidly built upon St. Paul's admonition to pray for our national leaders:

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior.

 -- 1 Timothy 2:1-3

Since the landmark 2008 general election, there can be no doubt that a very large percentage of our Nation's leaders have a liberal mindset. The undeniable fact is that the 111th Pelosi-Reid Congress and the Obama Administration demonstrate a far left political philosophy. And since the President nominates federal judges and Justices of the United States Supreme Court, the judicial branch of government could take on a decidedly more liberal bent as the Obama Administration wears on.

Liberty Counsel has therefore named this special new prayer-in-action program Adopt a Liberal. And that's exactly what we invite you to do -- adopt a liberal who is in authority for regular, intense prayer in accord with St. Paul's admonition to his disciple, Timothy. In fact, we expect that many of our friends and supporters will choose to adopt many liberals as subjects of regular prayer!

Here's How it Works...

Pick one or more of the liberals from the list we have posted online at www.LC.org, or choose your own liberal(s) to adopt. If you are led to choose one or more of the liberals we have selected for consideration, please read their brief biographical statement, including the reasons they stand in need of prayer.

Pray earnestly and intensely for them! Pray that the Lord would move upon them and cause them to be the kind of leaders who will encourage others to lead "a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence." We encourage you to seek the Lord's guidance on how to pray for your liberal(s), always allowing Him to temper your prayer with His love and mercy.

Join Us as We Pray for God's Powerful
Intervention in Many Liberals' Lives

Please 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. In fact, we fully expect that many of our adoptees will "graduate" from this prayer program with vivid testimonies of God having changed their lives and worldviews!

We will continue to add new subjects to our Adopt a Liberal program. Please feel free to nominate one or more liberals for prayer by emailing us at liberty@LC.org, giving us the reasons you feel they qualify for the program.

Here are just a few representative liberals to further illustrate how the Adopt a Liberal program works...

Choose a Liberal from the Following List

We will be adding a number of new subjects to our Adopt a Liberal program each week. Please feel free to nominate one or more Liberals for prayer by emailing us at liberty@LC.org. Although there is certainly a certain amount of tongue-and-cheek humor associated with this program, we desire that Liberty Counsel's Adopt a Liberal program will conform to 1 Timothy 2:1-4.

The "Unknown Liberal"

 
     
 

 

 

Michael Bloomberg, Mayor of New York

Michael Bloomberg, Mayor of New York City, has been all over the map when it comes to his registered political affiliation (having registered as a Democrat, a Republican, and then an Independent). However, he consistently takes three positions: pro-abortion, pro-gun control, and pro-same-sex marriage. He has said, "I think anybody should be able to marry anybody."

 
 

 

Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State

Hillary Clinton, former Democratic senator for New York, favors abortion, embryonic stem cell research and opposed criminalizing harm to an unborn child that occurs during an attack on the mother. The radical pro-abortion group NARAL concluded that her policies were 100% pro-abortion. She approves of hate crimes legislation and laws that give same-sex civil unions equal benefits, rights, and privileges to marriage. She advocated that homosexuals should be able to serve in the military without concealing their unnatural sexual preferences and she co-sponsored a bill that was intended to provide benefits to domestic partners of Federal employees. Since becoming Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton has testified that the new policy of the United States is to repeal abortion restrictions around the world.

 
 

 

 

Barney Frank, Congressman, Massachusetts

Congressman Frank serves as Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee and was the second openly homosexual member of Congress. The pro-homosexual Human Rights Campaign rates him as 100% committed to their issues. Americans United for Separation of Church and State concluded that he is 100% committed to their stated goal of suppressing religious expression in public life.

 
 

 

John Holdren, White House Director of Science and Technology

President Obama's "Science Czar" is one of the administration's many unelected, unconfirmed, and unaccountable senior policy officials.  Holdren has suggested compulsory sterilization and abortion as appropriate policies for population control.  He is on record as calling for the national government dictating how large families can be.  Dr. Holdren is a "one world order" proponent, stating that, "a comprehensive Planetary Regime could control the development, administration, conservation, and distribution of all natural resources."  In an article he co-authored, Holdren advocated sterilization through government-controlled tainting of the water supply.

 
 

 

Barry Lynn, Executive Director of AU

Reverend Barry W. Lynn is the radical Executive Director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State (AU).  His group uses "whistle blowing" techniques to harass Christian groups and churches, trying to embroil conservative and religious organizations in legal battles over their tax-exempt status.  AU conveniently overlooks abuses by leftist groups.  According to Lynn, religiously affiliated organizations should not be able to engage in what he calls "job bias" by screening out workers who disagree with their religious viewpoints. He believes that refusing to recognize same-sex marriage reflects "tradition's narrow view of marriage and sexuality."

 

 
 

 

Janet Napolitano, Secretary of the Department
of Homeland Security

Secretary Napolitano has refused to retract her Department's report that warned against so-called "right-wing extremists," with such groups being defined as people who believe in traditional American values like the right to bear arms and the sanctity of life, and even including veterans who hold such views .  As governor of Arizona, Napolitano vetoed seven pro-life measures. She also refused to support legislation dealing with illegal immigrants and mocked the building of a wall to protect the US-Mexico border.  She opposed amending the Arizona Constitution to protect marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Twenty percent of the state judicial appointments Napolitano made as governor were of homosexuals, reflecting her pro-homosexual agenda.

 
 

 

Barack Obama, President of the United States

President Obama has assembled what is arguably the most radically liberal administration in American history.  His policy initiatives have favored socialism, the homosexual agenda, and the funding of infant genocide around the world. He has denied America's Christian heritage but has openly praised Islam for its contributions to America and the world. He calls himself a "citizen of the world," a term that reflects his support of a "one world government."  As Illinois Senator, Barack Obama supported partial-birth abortion, and voted for the expansion of embryonic stem cell research. Although during the campaign he said that the abortion issue was above his pay grade, he has proven to be strongly pro-abortion in his policies.

 
 

 

 

Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House

California Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi represents the congressional district in San Francisco and has become one of the most powerful politicians in America. Pelosi supports same-sex marriage. She is an advocate of hate crimes laws that give special status and protection to homosexuals. Pelosi also has a 100% pro-abortion voting record.

 
 

 

 

Harry Reid, Senate Majority Leader

Senator Reid represents the State of Nevada but is reportedly fast losing popularity in his home state. Reid recently smuggled a "hate crimes" amendment through the Senate that gives special recognition to homosexuals by tacking it onto a vital military spending bill and scheduling a middle-of-the-night vote. He favors the Employment Nondiscrimination Act (ENDA) which will force employers to hire homosexuals, transsexuals and cross-dressers.

 
 

 

Arnold Schwarzenegger, Governor of California

Schwarzenegger, the Republican governor of California, was elected on a generally conservative platform but has become quite liberal on social policy issues.  Although he felt it necessary to issue state-backed "IOU's" rather than tax refunds in 2009, he refused to cut abortion spending out of the state budget, choosing rather to cut funding for public safety positions.  In 2006, Schwarzenegger signed into law a bill that punished organizations not providing full marital benefits to homosexuals, bisexuals, and transsexuals.  With many landmark legal challenges to traditional marriage rising in California, he has become an outspoken advocate of imposing same-sex "marriage" on citizens who have consistently voted against it.

 

 

 
 

 

 

Olympia Snowe, Senator, Maine

Senator Snowe (R - Maine) currently enjoys the highest home-state approval ratio of any U.S. Senator at 79%. Although a conservative on some fiscal and defense issues, she supports a government healthcare plan as a "fallback" if private insurers do not provide "affordable coverage." She is also quite liberal on social issues. In 2000, she voted to expand "hate crimes" to include sexual orientation. Snowe also voted against allowing employers to refuse to hire someone based on sexual orientation and against a constitutional ban of same-sex marriage.

 
 

 

 

Alan Colmes, National Talk Show Host

Colmes is a well-known talk show host who is a self-avowed liberal. During an interview with Mat Staver about our Adopt a Liberal program, Colmes requested to be added to this prayer program, suggesting that he would otherwise feel "left out."

 
 

 

 

Keith Olbermann, Television Personality

MSNBC commentator Olbermann makes fun of conservatives, gun rights advocates and people of faith who disagree with his viewpoint. He calls some people liars and nominates others for his "Worst Person in the World" list. Olbermann called complaints from Christians about holiday censorship a "phony baloney war on Christmas."

 
 

 

 

Rachel Maddow, Radio and Television Show Host

Maddow is an openly lesbian radio and television personality who pushes her liberal viewpoints in the media. She favors same-sex marriage, claiming that it decreased divorce when such marriages were legalized in Massachusetts. Maddow has also called for an emergency halt on military discharges of openly homosexual soldiers.
