Reza Aslan

I was skeptical about Reza Aslan's new series on CNN called Believer. CNN hyped it so much with adds. But I happened to see a couple of shows and I was impressed with his approach, his openmindedness. His show on voodoo was good. I was looking for it on Youtube when I came across a bunch of clips with him. I have vital cuke archiving to do so I just picked a couple of them

Reza Aslan vs CNN talking about generalizing on Islam - this is two years ago.

Reza Aslan with Oprah - of course with Oprah it gets deeper - there are others with her. My favorite is when he says that the mystical approach of all the great religions is to leave the religion behind - it's just a signpost.
