Lauren Green Reza Aslan
In 2011, Lauren Green asked whether Islam “makes believers more susceptible to radicalization.” After a 2013 interview with Iranian-American scholar Reza Aslan (who was then promoting his new book, Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth), Green received considerable criticism for her questions.
She questioned why a Muslim would write about Jesus, saying, “You’re a Muslim, so why did you write a book about the founder of Christianity?” Aslan defended his credentials several times throughout and clearly stated that his interest was scholarly. Green continued to press him on the same matters, clearly not taking on board anything Reza Aslan said.
Erik Wemple of The Washington Post disparaged her questions as “dumb, loaded, and prejudicial,” calling for the Fox News Channel to apologize to Aslan. Daniel Politi of Slate speculated that the interview was possibly “the single most cringe-worthy, embarrassing interview on Fox News […] in recent memory.”
Matthew J. Franck criticized Reza Aslan for his claim of a degree in the history of religions, as he teaches creative writing and holds a PhD in Sociology of Religion rather than a degree in history. In the interview, Aslan clearly stated that “anyone who thinks this book is an attack on Christianity has not read it yet.”
