The Alliance of Baptists and Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty are among 43 national religious, civil rights and other organizations joining in a statement warning state lawmakers across the country about an organized effort by evangelical political groups to promote Christianity.

The coalition, which also includes Americans United for Separation of Church and State, National Council of Churches, the Union for Reform Judaism and the Hindu American Foundation, opposes "Project Blitz," a playbook developed by a collection of Christian groups to promote model bills like "Bible literacy" legislation praised on Twitter by President Donald Trump.

The statement describes Project Blitz as "a new and coordinated national effort to enshrine Christian nationalism in state laws across the country."
