Tonight on the Scoot show: Should the Catholic Church change its position on priest getting married? There is a shortage of priest right now…do you think if men were allowed to marry and have families that they would be more inclined to become catholic priests? What about nuns should they be allowed to marry as well?(there numbers are dropping also) PLUS: Actor/comedian Bill Murray gives some advice to some young guys having a bachelor party at the hotel he was staying in.… we’ll play his advice on how to find ‘the ONE’ to marry. What advice did you get before getting married? What advice would you now give to those thinking of getting married? AND: Joe the Plumber says to the parents of the students killed in Santa Barbara – ‘Your dead kids don’t’ trump my constitutional rights.’ Is he correct? And does his statement help or hurt the image of gun owners in America? Can we blame the tragic death of these students on lack of tougher gun laws or on the gun itself? This guy STABBED his three roommates to death first then got a gun and shot the other students…so do we blame the knife for their deaths or the person wielding the knife? Why is it different with guns?
A tweet about a United Airlines gate agent refusing to allow 3 girls, one 10, to board a flight wearing leggings exploded on social media and is now a mainstream media controversy. The girls were flying on a pass from a United Airlines employee and the dress code for “pass travelers” is stricter than other passengers. Do you consider leggings inappropriate?
Do you think the extremes are destroying their positions or do you applaud them for their unrelenting positions?
The extremes represented by The Freedom Caucus in Washington, D.C. and Take ‘Em Down NOLA may be destroying their own positions.
President Donald Trump and GOP leaders pulled their "Obamacare" repeal bill off the House floor Friday after it became clear the measure would fail badly. Does this reflect badly on the Republicans?

The rain was not nearly as heavy in the immediate New Orleans area as we were expecting if you were in Gonzales signed and that whole part of this state you're just pounded also in the North Shore. So very very heavy rain. A tornado touched down and say John -- looking at live radar right now and a Franklin do it just got some rain right now this rain and in -- Very heavy rain around golden -- and to the south of golden at -- if if you're in some though and maybe it is not the heaviest -- now are going -- there's more coming. Most of the seemed to be the -- to the south also on the Gulf Coast it looks like -- on very heavy line of thunderstorms is just move through our Gulfport. But if you're on the I ten of the fortieth year if -- if you're in the east heading west and you before gulf -- you could be some very heavy rain between Pascagoula. And Biloxi. So drive really carefully and give yourself a lot of extra room between you and the vehicle in front of you. But right now most of this line of thunderstorm activity a seems to be to the south however. Southeast Louisiana does remain under a flash flood watch until tomorrow evening. And we're gonna have the latest all night long on our website at WW real dot com as a we're talking about was coach -- night. Joe The Plumber the guy who got attention during their campaign because he was like this average American. Who became part of the campaign he's not running for congress. Joe The Plumber. Said in an open letter to the families of the shooting victims in Friday's killing spree in Santa barber. He said this is not to the families. Of the kids that we're stamped. Only to the families of those who were shocked. And one of the fathers we talked about a -- here last night. I was very very vocal about congress not doing enough. To. Stop this from happening after 26 -- were killed at the sandy -- elementary school in Newtown Connecticut. Joe The Plumber in this open letter to the families of the shooting victims said you're dead kids. Don't -- my constitutional rights. Now while you might think he has a point. Should he said at that way. Is this the kind of rhetoric that should come from a politician. I realize we shouldn't trust politicians to be honest that this is not something that should be even acceptable. Now don't judge all gun owners by the harshness. But Joe The Plumber. And I would also tell you don't judge all plumbers. By -- harsh comment. By Joe The Plumber. But just to what you know how he might have sent. If he wanted to respond to the father who was so outspoken saying we need stricter gun laws that congress didn't do enough and that's why my son is dead. I understand the frustration. You lose a child as I said last night. I would never blame a father for just reaching out and grabbing at anything. That might explain his son or daughter senseless death. -- record criticize the father for reaching out for what I thought was the wrong solution. But I don't think it's the idiots in congress that are to blame. They call them idiots I agree with him there -- -- in congress. But I don't think -- anything that congress could have done to pass a law that would stop the shooting from happening fighting in -- barber. And I just don't see law -- new laws on the books it will stop things like that because we're talking about mental health and and what is it about the knife. That is exonerated. When it comes to a weapon. That he's used to kill. Nobody ever talks about nice. And you know we were -- we're given nights working -- we're trained to use in night our parents train us to use a knife. Maybe in a -- to -- is to use guns in the properly. But my god nicer everywhere we were kids we we have modernized. And I -- I guess you could argue that the I guess you could argue that a steak knife is a gateway ninth two a more serious knife to be used in a standing. But it's interesting that knives. Don't get product in this conversation. It's a ridiculous money with a knife it's the person did it. But there are still people in this country who believe that if somebody uses a gun kills about it's the -- fault. And it's not. However let me just tell you how Joe The Plumber -- set rather than say your dead kids don't -- my constitutional rights. If you were to say something. He could've said. I can appreciate your loss. But I don't think you gun. Control laws. Are going to stop this from happening again. But instead Joe The Plumber running for office. When out of his way to be so. Harsh. To try to capture the attention of voters. And if he does get the attention of voters to me this is really scary because that means voters are responding to this kind of mentality. You're dead kids don't trump my constitutional rights. If you -- join our show with your comment tonight our numbers 260187. Toll free 86688. -- early seventy. At a text of Marie's 87870.
