      This isn’t just a reply to Anarchasis but to all that commented.  “Do you ask every scholar who has ever written a book on any religious figure about their faith?” Ummm… yes! Why should an author’s background/religion be questioned in regards to a book slamming the OC (Original Christian)? I see that the base idea of journalism has gone the way of the dodo. I guess she was supposed to ask him what he has for lunch instead of what their viewers (myself not included) would want her to ask. Makes sense if Fox changed their name to MSNBC.  Like I said a Muslim writes a book about Jesus… no one bats an eye. A Christian writes a book about Islam and everyone loses their damn minds.  On a side note your reaction is why I lurk and don’t comment. Anyone questioning the collective is the enemy.

      The very first question she asks is… “You’re a Muslim. So, why did you write a book about the founding of Christianity?,”… A: ““Well, to be clear, I am a scholar of religions with four degrees, including one in the New Testament and fluency in Biblical Greek who has been studying the origins of Christianity for two decades who also happens to be Muslim,” the author said. “I am an expert with a PhD in religions.” He doesn’t answer and immediately goes into platitudes of how smart he is and how “qualified” he is to write it… nothing on why. Not really sure what this post is supposed to do other than rub the cockles of the rabid liberals who love this site by clearly ignoring what took place in that interview.  Besides aren’t Muslims murdering Christians in Egypt right now or are we not supposed to talk about that? Should he get a free pass on religious hypocrisy too like “Rev” Sharpton and “Rev” Jackson. As a white man if I wrote a book called “Racism: All In the Mind of the Black Man” I would expect to be brutally stabbed about the face neck and chest by the media.  Why should Mr. Aslan be any different? A Muslim writing a book on Jesus… **CRICKETS CHIRPING**. A Christian writing a book on Mohammad… BURN ALL THE THINGS! This guy is a hypocrite and from what I’ve seen hasn’t been completely honest with his credentials. Sure the interview is awkward and planned poorly but at least she’s asking questions no one else will.
