    Well, the interviewer clearly had an agenda that she wasn't going to let go of, regardless of what he said.

    Sounds like an interesting guy. Should have talked more about the book and what he learned and believes.

    Agreed. Just when it got good, she makes a hard left down Batchit Crazy Boulevard.

    How old are you? Buzzfeed isn't exactly some non-mainstream site that no one has ever heard of...

    you all aren't even close...the most embarrassing interview on Fox is the following event. to prove my point consider how cons on this message board still can't face up to the fact that they had been conned by the Fox cons.

    Megyn Kelly interviewing Karl Rove on election night and the classic 'Republican math' meltdown....best point was when Karl Rove stomped away from the table to go to the backroom to force the analysts to change their projection that Obama had won Ohio and had the electoral votes to win second term.

    The interviewers unintended implied reasoning is that anyone with a religious belief is incapable of objective thought about a religious subject. Not good.

    I think both parties had a little chip on their shoulder. Hers was more like a cow chip.

    The book might actually be a good read based on what he said during the interview.

    My point is that it doesn't inherently keep money out of the election. Those groups were free to spend money on electioneering activities even without being granted tax exempt status (in fact it's a lot easier to do so because there are fewer restrictions on what you can spend the money on).

    There's a much longer interview (that actually discusses what's in his book, not "How can you write a book about Jesus, you're a Muslim?") somewhere on the NPR website, was interesting.

    Edit: Appear to be multiple NPR interviews.

    I've listened to this one: http://www.npr.org/2013/07/15/198040928/christ-in-context-zealot-explores-the-life-of-jesus

    But there's another here: http://www.npr.org/2013/07/14/200844275/zealot-tells-the-story-of-jesus-the-man-not-the-messiah

    I liked the guy. Very polite, in command.

    Probably won't get around to reading the book, but again, nice guy.

    Old enough to have learned typing on a manual typewriter with a ribbon in the 11th grade, to have been amazed at the electric typewriter, to have taken metal shop in high school, to remember when the number 2 pencil was king and to have watched with amazement the test pattern on our first black and white television.

    Yeah, I remember that. :grin:

    Funny how quickly we get used to all the new gadgets that our big corporations bring to the masses. And many of those same people want to hate big business for their success.

    Been there.

    And about two and a half channels on that B&W TV, depending on the weather.

    My kid has no idea. :laugh:
