Earlier this month, the state of Texas has added God to the Texas Pledge. Texas state Rep. Debbie Riddle recently told the Houston Chronicle, "Personally, I felt like the Texas pledge had a big old hole in it."
And so the Texas House voted 124 -5 to put the words "Under God" in the Texas state pledge of allegiance recited by thousands of school children every day. The pledge with the change reads: "Honor the Texas flag; I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas, one state under God, one and indivisible."
"I am simply mirroring our national pledge," Riddle said.
