Reza Aslan trumps Fox News

Fox News laid a trap for Reza Aslan, author of Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth. But he came prepared, armored in erudition (“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 just happens to be a Muslim.”) and calm, and prepared to point out unreason (“I think the fundamental problem here is that you’re assuming that I have some type of faith-based bias in this work that I write.”). He sidestepped the pit, allowing the interviewer to fall deeper and deeper into it.
