Fox News host Lauren Green began the interview by asking why a Muslim was interested in writing a book about Jesus Christ.
The initial question alone was innocuous. But after Aslan explained his interest in Jesus — he was a former evangelical Christian and a religious scholar — Green continued to question his motivations. She insinuated the book was a secret attack on the core tenets of Christianity and that Muslim scholars could not write an accurate book about the historical Jesus.
Bream said Wednesday that Green was “taking so much heat” because people of the Muslim faith were overly sensitive.
