Well, they ignored everything you said and just approved this one:
By a 4-3 vote on Thursday, the state board decided to allow the religious design created by Glory Gang, a nonprofit youth organization, to be accepted into their specialty plate program, angering some who felt the state was favoring one religion over another.
The Liberty Institute, which works to protect religious freedoms for individuals, groups, and churches, believes that the phrase “One State Under God” is a reflection of Texas voters and Texas values, as a well as Texas’ support for the private religious speech of all in the state.
They stated on their blog that the specialty plate was not controversial, despite what many were saying. “In the state of Texas, the phrase ‘One State Under God’ is, in fact, decidedly noncontroversial and widely supported.”
A portion of the sales from that plate will now go to Glory Gang so that they can continue proselytizing to at-risk children. In other words, Texas now supports a Christian ministry as they give children “food, clothing, back to school back-packs, shoes, Christmas gifts & stockings, Summer Camp scholarships and Biblical training.”
Bribing kids with Jesus so they can get the things they need. How low can you go…?
