Christianity Today Calls For Trump's Impeachment; Purity Tests And Wine Caves; Origins Of Christmas

Dec 23, 2019

Christianity Today, an evangelical Christian publication founded by Billy Graham in 1956, published an editorial Thursday by editor-in-chief Mark Galli, calling for President Trump to be removed from office. 

This might sound shocking to the large number of evangelicals who steadfastly support the president despite behavior that has been at odds with Christian morality. 

The response to the editorial was swift and divided, causing Christianity Today's website to crash shortly after Galli's editorial was published. Will Galli's words make a difference?

Also this hour: Mayor Pete Buttigieg accused Elizabeth Warren of holding him to a purity test that she could not pass after she criticized him at Thursday's Democratic debate for holding a private fundraiser in a Silicon Valley wine cave. We look at the origins and use of the phrase "purity test."  

Lastly, the darker underbelly of the origins of Christmas.
