Who You Calling a Zealot?

Who writes Lauren Green's copy anyway?

I was planning to read Reza Aslan's latest book, Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth, eventually, but after the simple-minded, shabby, and shallow treatment he received at the hands of Fox newsreader Lauren Green (watch it and be gob-smacked) I just had to go buy the book and bump it to the head of my queue.  Hell, I might just buy a copy of his earlier work, No god but God (Updated Edition): The Origins, Evolution, and Future of Islam, just to make my share of the backlash complete.
