I got a call from a reporter yesterday, and now I'm quoted in his article
about the Texas law that adds "under God" to the Texas Pledge of Allegiance.
Here's the article: http://journal-sp...
and a portion of it: - Honor the Texas flag; I pledge allegiance to thee,
Texas, one state under God, one and indivisible.
That is the new revised pledge to the Texas flag. The phrase ��one state
under God�� was added during the 80th Legislature that concluded this summer,
and it was officially incorporated into the pledge on June 15.
��Where the general public is included, saying we are one nation (or, in this
case, state) under God is inaccurate and sometimes insulting �� especially to
those trying to be free from religion,�� said Joe Zamecki, the Texas state
director of American Atheists ��(Under God) turns the pledge into a prayer.
To even hear someone have to say that is hurtful.��
