Clojure is but you have to work hard for that, the initial language is effectively pure.

https://ideone.com/y8KWja clearly it isn't, its site only claims that most code happens to be pure, but it looks like it's not checked in any way and not sure if purity can be even checked there.

From the Clojure homepage: "Clojure is impure, yet stands behind the philosophy that programs that are more functional are more robust." The goal is to make it easy to program in a functional style, not to provide a pure functional programming language. It is like OCaml in that respect.
