(Lawrence Wright, getting the scoop. (Illo by Observer))

Yesterday, we were still thinking about Reza Aslan's friendly-but-not-so-friendly jabs at Alex Gibney and Lawrence Wright in his Sunday night Believer episode about Scientology.

Aslan was up front that he has a "soft spot" for Scientology, which he feels gets a bad rap. And certainly one of the biggest raps the church has absorbed lately was the documentary that Gibney and Wright came out with in 2015, Going Clear (disclosure: we're in it).
