Critics of Texas governor Rick Perry are already up in arms over what would seem to be yet another move in his "look how Christian I am" political game: a Texas license plate with three crosses and the slogan "One State Under God" on it. The 4–3 decision approving the design was in fact made by the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles and not Perry, as a statement put out by the governor's office made clear, although Perry did nominate everyone on the board.
