Skills were in bail -- -- until this past week drop back and Chapel Hill. Through Putin announced that they have impassioned pleas. Call by Hispanic kids and in the and its Spanish. And it occurred to me talking my body. I don't think my opulence is that the question of state in the Catholic faith is going to be cared for a while Hispanics. They have strong. Patent -- christianity in Catholic faith and guns that were in south of San Antonio in quite a few various and I just want to mention that that. Appeal that the Hispanic will these people and -- -- debate in the capital of the Catholic -- You know what about that seemed happy Good Friday it was -- blessing that. Yet that would be a good way to do it I don't disagree with you about Hispanics and I think obviously there are a lot of people are gonna carry on the face but it is. -- Terry I guess strong a strong -- Catholic faith is -- is very well entrenched in the Hispanic community is something that. I've noticed they're living in San Antonio and also in a Southern California. But -- won't -- -- amid peace and videos in the French Quarter festival participants -- candidate beat that. That you came out improbable sorry there could be an agency of the entrap the back to Texas but it was awesome awesome awesome the books and candidate really Jordan. And still -- on a great Q. By Howard I'm glad you could go to. Heaven I says they have crises to weaken. You know last year I was -- to be in the crawfish eating contest. This year they did Nancy because I was we're such a pitiful contested last year. Because I wasn't interested in -- them -- that the crawfish came for Ross's. They were hot they were delicious so I'm sitting there appealing the -- fish and pulling the -- often and you got these guys like. Travers magical and Fletcher Mac and they're just like in the this got a sense field they're just how that are. Effect Tonya dual channel four. Beat me last year by wide margins -- was -- even contestants are really wasn't insulted that they didn't like me back but.

On the -- blog tonight on our website at WW dot com also on our FaceBook page at WW radio is titled. A respect for diversity and religious freedom. A freedom in America actually means freedom for ball. And not just Christians and there's a controversy once again. Concerning a religious holidays a foxnews.com. Did a video and indeed the video interview date. They gave the controversy to headline the unholy war on Easter. West Fox News that promoted it has been promoting the idea that there's a war on Christmas which we've dealt with on the -- who will be talking about it. If you want if you want to read you can read the blog and you are you might totally agree with me you might totally disagree with me. You can read it -- with -- others and a division comics if you like it's also part of our FaceBook conversation. At WW radio -- -- with those comments. Coming up also be thinking about a movie. That dealt with religion. That made you feel really collect. Just if you're really really good feeling what movie that deal with religion. Major feel really good. And maybe once in a movie that was. Exactly. A religious movie but it was a movie that -- you really feel good lead in to deal with religion we'll talk about that on the showed. So I was wondering why Good Friday is called Good Friday. And I was walking around today and I saw people is a beautiful day and and I saw people on the street and instead of saying excuse me. It disappointed a timely issue say excuse me and you wanna say happy Easter or I wanted my my instinct was to say happy Good Friday. But I thought this is the day that Christ was crucified. This is the day he die it. So why would it be called happy group I guess it's not really happy that mr. Obama kind of a solemn time like yes. And then the resurrection Sunday that he is on a great celebration perhaps arguably the the most joyous day on the Christian calendar. But there are there are a few theories about why Good Friday is called Good Friday one of the theories years. Good Friday is called Good Friday because Christians believe that there's something very good. About Jesus suffering and dying for our sins. And then rising from the dead. And in the celebration of Easter tecumseh with Easter coming up it's good they Christ died on this Friday. And so that's why it's called Good Friday that's one theory. Another theory is that the good in Good Friday derives from dot. -- Friday. Becomes Good Friday not many people think that that's that's very credible. But it seems as if the most credible. Explanation. I'm in theory behind. The term Good Friday on this the date that that Christ died. Is that in those times. The word good. Was interchangeable with the work hole. Good and holy essentially the same thing so -- Good Friday it's almost like saying holy Friday British you know there's only Thursday. It's a Good Friday is essentially. Holy day. Have always been surprised in the Catholic churches -- such an important date on the calendar. Have always had surprised that good parties that holy day of obligation although church which is indeed very partisan. If you are -- as for the comment about it -- were talking about tonight's our numbers 2601870. -- -- 3866889. Is early seventy. Or text number. Is it 7870. This is the -- show on Good Friday and we'll be right back on WWL. It's Good Friday -- -- beginning of the weekend tomorrow is the Crescent City classic. And Sunday shirt this year falls on April the twentieth 424. -- the -- -- marijuana. A Seattle restaurant has an advertisement showing Jesus smoking a joint. Promoting buy one get one free of the -- of the gods the restaurant is promoting will talk about that coming up in the next hour. And also. Maybe we have now found the origin. Of the term for twenty and wife for twenty has become putt table talk about that in the next hour. On this crucial for New Orleans John welcome to WWL. Hey John. -- -- Reports about what it is good. Luck because and it went. Yet I had. Good Friday or just they -- the fact that it falls. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It's on video that they will become. Law. John you know are far I'll find out if somebody knows -- certainly call our show and and let us know I'm not exactly sure how Good Friday started as something that we've always known and accepted. As far as. Deals with their -- celestial calendar and everybody Easter falls it's always been interesting to me that the day Christ was born. Is the same day every year but today he died a fluctuates from year to year. If you -- arguably got to hear about that you know all of the Bible is the Bible you know about the Bible it is day said that. The patriots of their that you didn't use their. Followed the traditional policy -- that the console what's the hold out of the ballpark school. Eat each evening you don't final good parties and yet there -- quite expected have been ultra lucrative big plate -- evident that that's not a bad it is scriptural. All of you know restrict and give Christians. Give it. John I've gone glad to call if anybody if anybody wants to respond to that. Weird -- I don't I'll I'll find out we'll talk about that coming up for the next hour what is the origin of Good Friday. Also tonight's on the show we'll talk about what movie. Dealt with religion. That really makes you feel good. I'm -- we'll be right back with more on this Good Friday evening -- -- well.
