Defend Your Freedom!
Religious liberty is under attack in America.
Your freedom to believe may not last much longer.
To all those who say they don’t care about the culture war, Erick Erickson and Bill Blankschaen have only one response: “The Left will not let you stay on the sidelines. You will be made to care.”
You Will Be Made to Care is one of the most important books you will read this year.

“This book explains to American Christians that ignoring the culture around us will not rewind us back to some safer place in the past. More than that, the book is a catalyst for thinking through a path forward for the years to come. Read this book and ponder how we can leave an inheritance for our children of liberty and justice, for all.”

“The compassionate bullies of the Left have decided they must force you to shut up. My friend Erick Erickson exposes their unbelievable bullying so often ignored or excused by the media.”

The Left’s Culture War Is After You!
No matter how many times activist courts intervene to award victories to the Left, it is never enough for progressives. They bend, twist, and distort the law and the Constitution to their beliefs. And then they insist that everyone must agree with them—or else! Or else you can lose your job, you can be sued out of business, you can be driven off campus, you can be hounded by the government. In the end, no matter how much you wish these issues would just go away—you will be made to care.
In their enlightening, but also frightening, new book, radio host and former RedState editor in chief Erick Erickson and author and former pastor and educator Bill Blankschaen reveal how the Left is already imposing its totalitarian beliefs.
And they provide a prescient warning about the extreme measures that will almost certainly affect you, your family, and your community in the very near future.
In their book, you’ll learn:
- How being good at your job is no excuse: how “America’s firefighter” lost his job for believing that marriage is between a man and a woman
- How universities are driving Christian groups off campus
- How lawyers are raking in millions through politically correct lawsuits against religious groups that don’t affirm homosexuality as “normal”
- How there is nowhere to hide: no matter how small your bed and breakfast, or your wedding chapel, or your flower shop—the leftist-homosexual mafia will shut you down if you don’t share their beliefs
- How Christian clergy will be forced to perform gay weddings or see their churches forced into bankruptcy
- How we can resist—what you can do now, if you believe in the First Amendment’s guarantee of freedom of conscience and freedom of religion—and how if we don’t resist, those freedoms will be gone
Freedom of speech, religion, and even thought have never been more threatened in our country than they are today, which makes You Will Be Made to Care one of the most important books you will read this year.

“Many of the students who come through my college classroom want to avoid the great moral and social issues of our age, sitting on the sidelines with an attitude of, "Why should I care?" But as Erick Erickson and Bill Blankschaen point out, the sidelines are shrinking. Soon we will all be pressured into taking a stand. We will all be forced to "care." This book briefs readers on how to recognize typical strategies used to marginalize and discredit Christian perspectives in the public arena--and how to inspire a resurgence.”

“This urgently needed book lays bare the Left’s plan to redefine the classic Christian views on sex and marriage as the legal equivalent of racism. Buy it. Read it. Blog it. Share it now before it’s too late.”

“Years ago, William F. Buckley, Jr. urged fellow conservatives to call out “Stop!” Today, Erick Erickson and Bill Blankschaen are crying out to the same movement, “Wake up!” Among numerous other salutary concerns, one feels their passion for sanctified gender and sexuality throughout this vibrant, nimble, steel-spined book. Erickson and Blankschaen have succeeded in fashioning an easily applicable brand of cultural engagement. Now the need is this: for Christians to buy into this program and, like the apostle Paul, own their citizenship through catalyzed faith.”

“Erick Erickson and Bill Blankschaen not only sound the alarm about the wildfire sweeping America in You Will Be Made to Care, they explain why Progressives do what they do and attack religious liberty. A stirring call to action, You Will Be Made to Care offers a practical roadmap for families, individuals, pastors, church leaders, and citizens to act while they still have time to experience a resurgence of faith, freedom, and liberty!”

“Few more prophetic words have been spoken in our recent political discourse than ‘You will be made to care.’ Erick Erickson and Bill Blankschaen underscore in a convincing and justifiably alarming way that the Left is not looking for mere tolerance but to force social conservatives, indeed everyone, into submission to their ideology—prosecuting and persecuting along the way. You might not care about the agenda of social liberalism—but, menacingly, it cares about you. This is a must-read book.”

“You don’t have to be Christian to love this book. You don’t have to even be religious. You do, though, have to love freedom. In order to take away our God-given rights, the Left must take away God. Everyday, they are removing God from every corner of American life – something the Founders never intended. Today, God. Tomorrow, your freedom. Read this book to understand what they are doing and how to stop them.”

“You Will be Made to Care doesn’t parse words. Threats to conscience and religious liberty abound. Inevitably, every Christian will be tasked with contending for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints. You Will be Made to Care is a trustworthy guide.”
