Fox News anchor doesn't get why Reza Aslan, a Muslim, would write about Jesus

Because the coward wouldn't dare write about Mohamed.

"You're a Muslim, so why did you write a book about the founder of Christianity?"

That's how Fox News anchor Lauren Green kicked off an interview last week for "Spirited Debate" with religious scholar and bestselling author Reza Aslan. Aslan's new book,"Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth," posits that Jesus Christ was a political insurgent and looks at his affect on the unstable times in which he lived.Green, however, was not so interested in the content of the book. What she wanted to talk about was the bias and possible secret agenda that she implied had fueled Aslan's interest in the subject of Jesus.

Maybe because if she wrote a book about Mohammed and called him a zealot the death threats would never end?

The author (a male by the way) is a religious scholar. This is just Fox playing to it's anti-intellectual base. What! People that read books! What's next? Believing in science?

Allow me to correct my statement.

Because if he wrote a book about Mohammed and called him a zealot the death threats would never end.

But there will probably be a few of those regardless.

Correct a lot of your mindless blather, if you believe it will help.
