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?

In a text numbers 877. If you're ever gonna get an update on what we're talking about two on any show if you tune into late. We start our show every night with the top eight at eight. Every post that sits on the -- page go to WWL dot com at the top there's aboard air shows and schedules. -- click on that and click on this two page. And the topic to date should be posted -- year every night and it's an update -- of the things we're talking about it even if you here's talking about it at the moment -- if you read something in the topic to date. And you wanna comment on it you can certainly caller -- Joe The Plumber. Samuel Wilson blocker I think we're also -- rules -- -- these species name. He set an open letter to the families of the shooting victims in Friday's killing spree in Santa Barbara California not those who are stamped. But the families of the shooting victims. And in the open letter he said you're dead kids. Don't -- like constitutional rights. He's running for congress. Do not judge all gone voters. By Joe The Plumber. Do not judge all numbers. By Joe The Plumber because that would be unfair. I think it's important to denounce. This mentality. This is fringe. Mentality. And the scary thing is some people respond to it. Now. He's right. In what he says he's right. But he's not right. In how and when he sent. You said this on Monday. The shooting was on Friday. He's responding to the father of one of the shooting victims. Who blames the idiots in congress. For not doing more following the shooting as sandy hook where -- sixties were killed. Now I would never criticize that father. For just trying to grasp anything. That would maybe help explain in his heart and mind his son's. Tragic death. But I don't agree with him that. Something could have been done by congress that would have prevented this guy alien Roger from going on this -- shooting spree or stabbing spree people with this car. It's it's not about guns it's about the person. But this kind of of hateful talk. Should be denounced. And not tolerate. And just to show you how Joe The Plumber might if -- he wanted to say the same thing they're Cilic you know how I might have centered or how you might have said it. To say you're dead kids don't -- my constitutional rights. That's a horrific way to put it. He -- said. I can only imagine what you're dealing with. It is unfortunate. That. Tragedies happen. But we should not lose our constitutional rights. We tragedies occur. So the message about what he says he's right but how he said he should not. Be considered acceptable. -- -- Who was described it an AP report that I read earlier today as a modern Renaissance woman. And award winning poet. Author. Activist. She -- some amazing things.

She was an amazing. Amazing lady. And with her passing we will be reminded of many of the things that she says many of the things that that people don't pay attention to. It's really a shame that they're quite often when it comes to artists. In India in in different disciplines different mediums. But it comes artists sometimes we don't really pay as much attention to their wisdom their words. Their creations. When their life. As really pass away. Mya Angelou said there is no greater agony. And bearing an untold story. In -- you. That's true. She also said history despite its wrenching pain. Cannot be on lift. But if faced with courage. Need not be lived again. We have also tonight and talking about the words of actor Bill Murray he crashed into a bachelor party you may have seen it says in video and producer or on line. He offer some advice to all the men at the party he was at a restaurant and then it was a special party going on any other -- -- questionnaire given to advise a -- his advice was. If you wanna marry somebody before you -- buy two tickets around the world he easy for him this is it but but but but in theory. The point that he's making his very -- -- he can actually do this think about what it means to try to do something relative to your life it would be similar to -- He said before you marry somebody. Buy two tickets to go around the world and even go to places that are hard to get to. And if you go through that -- indeed go to the heart places and you go through the difficulties of that trip around the world. And if you still wanna Merriam. And you marry him as soon as you land at the airport when you get back in the United States. And I I've fought that Lewis just. Great advice. And we're getting great advice from from people who are listening to our children. And it's great advice in the wisdom of this audience. I want to tap into the net. If you're married. If you were married. What advice would you give somebody's thinking about getting married. And -- talking about the advice that you give somebody who's thinking about getting married. Were also giving advice to those people who right now might be struggle. I think one of the most profound things said tonight was -- attacks that I read earlier. It's not what they you can live with the person. It's whether you can live without them. And when I think about difficult times that I'd been through in relationships. But always comes up in my mind the defining question is. Can I leave the dispersant can I get through this. Cannot leave without them. Or would it be too difficult to live without them. Somebody else called and said marriage has to be bigger than the mistakes that you make. Somebody else suggested that if you can't if you're having an argument. Sometimes you can go to bed kissing each other say I love you but we'll talk about it in the morning. Because sometimes especially if alcohol involved in -- an argument. That's not the best time to try to settle. So maybe in the morning is the best time to settle. True it was an interest in text. No -- more about yourself. Not to know more about your spouse. Than anyone else. But -- everything. And I think that's I think that's important. I think it's important to like Steele have this little bit of intrigue. About each other. At this immunity dark deep hidden secrets are -- secretly that you're doing on -- so on the side. But the things that attracted you to each other in the beginning. Were. Kind of the -- the mystery about it learning about this person. If you feel like you actually know everybody through and through it totally predict everything that they're gonna say they can do. Isn't that boring. So maintain a little bit of the mystique. And I also think it's very important. For couples to always. Want the person there width. To still be attracted. To whether people. You still want other people to be attracted I don't mean in terms of hitting on him but you want whoever you width. To be attractive to other people.

Underwriters and I appreciate you sharing that -- -- get Netflix hosting two WW Illinois. Here's a quick update on -- W -- pretty general opinion poll should the Catholic Church change its celibacy rule and allow priests to marry if Christina were talking about marriage and and what it takes two to make a marriage work. And if you're thinking about getting married I hope you're listening to some of the wisdom it's -- coming from many of our listeners tonight. History has shown that traditions. Or not always right. And it's not always easy to change traditions. Many Catholics cling to the traditions of the Catholic Church. As if there the support beams. That hold up the church. -- established through history. The tradition the vow of celibacy for priests. I think continues to be an active debate among Catholics -- clergy. And it's time that it was resolved. Should Catholic priests be allowed to marry. There are reasons that many have given for priest. Not being married and being -- but and that the reasons range from the mobility of priest to their devotion to the church. To the issue of financial responsibility. The church would have to a -- spam. But none of those reasons really support. Celibacy. That really it's really comes down to the ultimate question how would married priest negatively impact. The Catholic Church. The church currently has married priests. So the argument cannot be. That a married priests cannot function. Because the church has married priest. A basketball priests. Who are married. Can convert to the Catholic Church. They're welcome to the church. As Mary preached. -- married Catholic priests. Often with a family. So he's being married conflicts with. The Catholic church's view of god. But God's wishes where the function of being a priest and how could the Catholic Church except I'm married priests from another denomination. -- ME TV this is. This is that that that the telling moment. Wind and the church is actually accepting. -- -- At a church continues to face a shortage of priests. And new world archdiocese is preparing to welcome four new priest into the church. Archbishop Gregory Hayman said -- their studies that show that. If he were not for celibacy. They would be attracting more priest. To the priesthood. Tommy Tucker talked to archbishop Raymond earlier today and here's part of what he had -- -- I you know what John would just get to that in just to hold -- to continue -- -- just just get that set up and moved -- to that moment. The vow of celibacy. Is about a never marry. And since having sex out of wedlock his decision. The vow of celibacy is about it never had sex. But isn't sex a function of the human body. And it's a sex part of a loving relationship. Sex. Is the physical manifestation of two people becoming more and and to deny that human experience. To priests. And two nuns for that matter. Seems to defy one of the emotions that separates humans. From much of the animal kingdom. Pope Francis says it's implied that. The requirement of celibacy for priests is open for discussion. And that was unsettling to a lot of Catholics around the world but why is the idea of a married priests so unsettled. If you're Catholic what aspect of a priest duties. Would be adversely affected. If a priest was -- As a Catholic I can't think of any. If you're a Catholic would you refuse to accept communion or go to confession. If a priest in your parish was a married episcopal priest who converted to catholicism and who's been a married Catholic -- would you not want to take communion or which you know -- -- here you confession. Clinging to traditions. Simply because their traditions. Into the because -- accepted an established it's not the right reason to maintain any tradition. Within our society and within the Catholic Church. There have been changes in traditions. Mean recently as some of the wording of the mess. Has been changed and if it hadn't been changed I'm not sure how many of us would ever have the occasion to use the word -- substantial. Which is now part of an icy -- I respect many traditions in in society and in the church. But it's important to reassess some traditions. That no longer fit into society or the church. As he continues to evolve. At a time when a manmade rule of celibacy. At the time it became part of the Catholic church and maybe it was more reasonable. But in the context of the world in which we live I don't understand how continuing the requirement of priest remaining celibate. Benefits the Catholic church and Catholics around the world. Celibacy disqualifies countless young -- Who have great talent and expressing spirituality. And inspiring congregations. And in my opinion as a Catholic. It's time to remove the requirement celibacy. And open the door to many young men. Who should. And could be priest in new leaders in the Catholic Church. However I also think it's very important for us to remember but it's also very important for us to remember that. No pre should be forced to get married. Because if you force a priest to get married. I'm thinking well that might make them Wii shortage even greater. If you wanna join us for the -- not -- or shooter right on numbers 2601870. Toll free 866. 8890 -- seventy and -- ever. It's 877.
