What If Jesus Were Tried Under Texas' Death Penalty Law?

The Dallas Morning News has an intriguing interview with law professor and former federal prosecutor, Mark Osler (pic) who poses the question, What if Jesus were prosecuted under the Texas Death Penalty statute?

Bearing in mind that actual innocence is not an obstacle to death in the Big T, what chance would Jesus have?

Editor, Michael Landuaer does an awesome job of confronting the issue of this very bizarre practice in this death-wish region of our Country.  Professor Osler is a very brave man, to recontextualize the debate in such a startling perspective.  Maybe he will turn more than a few hearts.
