"Christians! Do not hold those Purim parties!"

Mar 08, 2018, 11:46 PM

This week we tackled a delicate issue for many American Christians--churches that hold their own observances of Jewish holidays. Amy talked to Mark Oppenheimer, religion journalist and host of the Unorthodox podcast, to get a Jewish perspective on this cultural appropriation.

We also discussed the rest social media frenzy around photos that seemed to show a Protestant church ceremony to bless parishioners' guns. The "church" in question was actually the World Peace and Unification Sanctuary, an offshoot of the cult-like Unification Church (sometimes to referred to as "the Moonies").

And finally, Nish used her Three Minutes to tell everyone to chill out about the possibility of Oprah or any other incredibly popular celebrity running for president in 2020.
