Frederick Clarkson in Religious Dispatches has a new article out: "'Project Blitz' Seeks to do for Christian Nationalism What ALEC Does for Big Business".
The article concerns a 116-page playbook for the Christian Right's state legislative strategy on religious liberty.
Launched initially in 2015, Project Blitz brings something new and dramatic to the Christian Right as it continues to mature as a political movement—especially in light of its electoral advances in state governments over the past decade. To that end, Project Blitz has also been organizing state legislative “Prayer Caucuses” since its inception. There are currently 29 such groups, modeled on the Congressional Prayer Caucus (which comprises about a hundred sitting U.S. Senators and Representatives.) They range from very small in terms of publicly named members, to remarkably large; Iowa boasts 65 members, plus the Governor and Lt. Governor.
