I already knew he was a total asshole from the Fox News interview. Now I just know from these comments how shallow and stupid the people who support him are.
How am I ridiculous?
Also, he started repeating that he had a PhD before the interviewer said or “insisted” anything about his credentials. Her questions were only about the motives of the book.
I definitely agree with you about Aslan. Any thesis a scholar writes is unavoidably a bias of some sort. It has to be or the writing is hardly saying anything.
This man’s role is to educate Fox News viewers about religion, not to brag about his PhD. He is the one who should be embarrassed, not a Fox News anchor who is also “doing her job” just like he is. This is one of the most unprofessional scholars I’ve ever seen talk on national news.
