The Texas pledge of allegiance appears to be changing

The Texas pledge of allegiance would change to include the words “one state under God” under legislation overwhelmingly approved Friday by the House. The bill by Rep. Debbie Riddle, R-Tomball, was sent to the Senate on a 124-12 vote.

Opponents said the inclusion of religion in a state-sanctioned pledge amounted to religious oppression – particularly since it’s recited in school every morning.

The pledge would now be: “Honor the Texas flag. I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas, one state under God and indivisible.”
