Religion, culture behind Texas execution tally

By Ed Stoddard

DALLAS (Reuters) - Texas will almost certainly hit the grim total of  400 executions this month, far ahead of any other state, testament Executionto the influence of the state's conservative evangelical Christians and its cultural mix of Old South and Wild West.

"In Texas you have all the elements lined up. Public support, a governor that supports it and supportive courts," said Richard Dieter, executive director of the Death Penalty Information Center.

"If any of those things are hesitant then the process slows down," said Dieter. "With all cylinders working as in Texas it produces a lot of executions." Shot

I signed onto this petition demanding that Congress reverse this capitulation to Bush and the politics of fear. Can you join me? Just click here:
