For the annual Sectarian Review “Banned Books Week” show, Danny is joined by Jay Eldred and Megan Von Bergen to discuss the Christian Impulse to boycott or ban. What drives people of faith to avoid businesses and works of art in adherence to the faith? Are there occasions when this impulse is appropriate? As always the Sectarian Review gang try to take a nuanced approach to such questions.
