Reza asserts that religious folks do not claim that morality derives from scripture. This is the exact opposite of the truth: religious people are always saying that without God there can be no morality. Of course, it's not true. It's just what they say.

FFS Vox, stop inviting relugious people to talk about religion. They don't know the first thing about it. Reza Aslan is no more interesting than any 2bit evangelical preacher.
