TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH" AS THE

DEMOCRATS CONVENE IN CHARLOTTE,

NEW DEVELOPMENTS HAVE PEOPLE ASK

THE QUESTION: ARE GOD OR

CHRISTIANS WELCOME AT THE DNC?

PLUS TWO, THREE, FOUR OR

MORE, A CALIFORNIA BILL, COULD

IT CHANGE THE DEFINITION OF

MARRIAGE AND FAMILY ACROSS THE

NATION. SEEKING REFUGE,

SYRIANS UNDERSIEGE FLEE FOR

SAFETY AND FIND HOPE.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." THE DEMOCRATS TAKE

THEIR TURN IN THE NATIONAL

SPOTLIGHT.

GOOD EVENING I AM LEE WEB.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION

KICKS OFF IN NORTH CAROLINA.

FIRST LADY MICHELE OBAMA WILL

TAKE THE HEAD LINER, SHE WILL

TELL HOW HER HUSBAND DESERVES

FOUR MORE YEARS.

THE PLATFORM CALLS FOR A TAX

INCREASE ON AMERICANS MAKING

MORE THAN $250,000 A YEAR.

PLATFORM BACKS ABORTION RIGHTS

AND FALLS IN LINE WITH PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S STANCE OF SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE.

IT IS A SHARP CONTRAST AND

DEMOCRATS ARE EAGER TO HIGHLIGHT

THE DIFFERENCE.

WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT

JENNIFER WISHON HAS MORE ON WHAT

THEY HOPE TO ACHIEVE THIS WEEK.

THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL

CONVENTION BEGINS AS THE

PRESIDENTIAL RACE IS LOCKED IN A

DEAD HEAT.

IT HAS BEEN 150 YEARS SINCE THE

CAROLINAS HOSTED A POLITICAL

CONVENTION.

THEIR CHOICE OF CHARLOTTE SHOWS

THEY ARE READY TO FIGHT FOR THE

SOUTH.

PARTY LEADERS BELIEVE IT WILL

SPILL INTO THE BORDER ON TO

STATE, VIRGINIA, ANOTHER

BATTLEGROUND STATE.

DEMOCRATS HAVE A CLEAR PURPOSE,

REGISTER VOTERS AND SIGN UP

SCORES OF VOLUNTEERS TO GET OUT

THE VOTE.

IT IS A MISSION EVIDENT AS YOU

WALK THE HALLS AND CHARLOTTE

STREETS.

NORTH CAROLINA WAS IMPORTANT TO

PRESIDENT OBAMA IN 2008, THE

PRESIDENT ONLY WON BY 15,000

VOTES.

NORTH CAROLINA WAS TIGHT IN

2008.

IT WILL BE TIGHT THIS YEAR.

I DON'T THINK IT IS GOING TO BE

AN EASY STATE TO WIN.

IT IS A STATE THE PRESIDENT

ABSOLUTELY CAN WIN.

HE HAS A GROUND FOR US IN NORTH

CAROLINA THAT IS UNRIVALLED.

MITT ROMNEY HAS SPENT MILLIONS

OF DOLLARS IN NORTH CAROLINA AND

CAN'T SEEM TO GET ANY DISTANCE.

THAT IS AN INDICATION THAT THIS

RACE IS GOING TO GO DOWN TO THE

WIRE.

EVERY SPEAKER WILL TALK ABOUT

HOW THE PRESIDENT PLANS TO

REBUILD THE ECONOMY FROM THE

MIDDLE CLASS OUT AND TELL THE

STORY OF WHERE THE PRESIDENT HAS

BEEN.

REMIND VOTERS OF THE ECONOMIC

CRISIS THE PRESIDENT INHERITED.

MICHELE OBAMA WILL SERVE AS THE

CHARACTER WITNESS OF HOW THE

PRESIDENT HAS MADE THE DECISIONS

HE HAS THAT SERVE AS THE RECORD

HE IS RUNNING ON.

AT THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL

CONVENTION DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL

CONVENTION IN CHARLOTTE, NORTH

CAROLINA, JENNIFER WISHON, CBN

NEWS.

WE HAVE BREAKING NEWS, DAVID

BRODY HAS LEARNED GOD HAS BEEN

REMOVED.

HERE IS A PARAGRAPH FROM 2008

PLATFORM.

WE NEED THE GOVERNMENT THE

CHANCE TO MAKE -- THIS YEAR'S

PLATFORM HAS BEEN REWORDED WE

GATHER TO CLAIM, EACH ONE SHOULD

BE ABLE TO GO AS FAR AS OUR

TALENT CAN TAKE US.

TUNE INTO TOMORROW'S "700 CLUB"

FOR MORE.

CHURCHES PARTNERING WITH

CHARLOTTE 714 IN A PRAYER EFFORT

WANT TO SEND A BASKET.

DEMOCRATS DENIED THEM PERMISSION

BECAUSE OF PRO-LIFE STANCE.

MAYOR'S OFFICE ASKED THAT YOU

NOT SEND THE LETTERS AND NOT

ENGAGE ADOPT DELEGATION, YOUR

VIEWS ON WOMEN ARE CONTRARY TO

THE DELEGATION.

ONE DELEGATE THINKS THE DNC

IS WRONG BECAUSE THEY SANCTIONED

AN ISLAMIC GROUP.

IF YOU DO FOR ONE GROUP, YOU

HAVE TO OPEN IT FOR OTHER

OTHERWISE YOU ARE PLAYING

FAVORITES.

CHARLOTTE 714 STILL PLAN TO

PRAY FOR THE DELEGATES AND THE

CHURCH AND AMERICA.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY.

BEFORE THE OFFICIAL DNC KICK

OFF, THIS COMMUNITY OF CHARLOTTE

CHRISTIANS JOINED TO REPEPT AND

ASK GOD TO RAISE UP THE CHURCH.

OUR MORAL AND SPIRITUAL

DECLINE IS A DIRECT RESULT OF

THE SALT SITTING IN THE SALT

SHAKERS.

THE CULMINATION OF A 40-DAY

FAST, MOSTLY FOR THE CITY'S

CHURCHES.

BEFORE WE LOOK AT THE

PRESIDENTS IN UNITED STATES,

TAKE A LOOK ON THE INSIDE AND

SEE WHAT IT IS BY US THAT NEEDS

TO BE CHANGED.

CHARLOTTE HAS BEEN TERMED THE

QUEEN CITY.

ONCE AGAIN THE QUEEN CITY WOULD

REMARRY HER KING WITH VIOLENT

LOVE AND KOV INNOCEN KOV NANS.

WE BELIEVE GETTING THE WHITE

HOUSE RIGHT WILL NOT FIX

AMERICA, BUT WE WILL FIRST GET

THE CHURCH HOUSE WRONG.

IT IS WRONG TO PUT JESUS IN A

BOX OR POLITICAL PARTY.

THAT DOESN'T MEAN CHRISTIANS

SHOULD STAY OUT OF THE PROCESS.

AS CHRISTIANS, WE ARE

SUPPOSED TO APPROACH THE BALLOT

BOX, IN WHAT WAY DOES MY VOTE ON

HONOR THE BIBLE THE MOST.

TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS,

THEN I WILL HEAR FROM HEAVEN AND

FORGIVE SIN AND HEAL THEIR LAND.

*

WORSHIP LEADER JOHN WALLER WAS

WRITING A SONG BASED ON THE

VERSE.

GOD PUT 2 CHRONICALS 714 AND

I GOT A CALL FROM DAVID BENHAM.

THAT WAS A MAJOR CONFIRMATION.

OTHERS RECEIVED A

CONFIRMATION.

I KNOW WHEN GOD IS REAL AND

WHEN HE SEES US COMING TOGETHER,

BLACK, WHITE, NOW HE CAN DO

SOMETHING.

WE ARE TAKING OUR POSITION IN

HIM.

WHAT ARE YOU HOPING WILL

DEVELOP FROM HERE?

SPIRITUAL ENLIGHTENING.

WE NEED IT IN CHARLOTTE AND OUR

CHURCHES.

MORE AND MORE PEOPLE WILL COME

TO KNOW CHRIST.

PRAYER GATHERING WAS

SIMULCAST ONLINE AND ORGANIZERS

HOPE TO REPLICATE IT IN CITIES

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

ALREADY TALK ATLANTA MAYBE

NEXT.

JOHN JESSUP, CBN NEWS, AT THE

VERIZON WIRELESS AMPLE THEATRE

IN CHARLOTTE.

A RECORD HIGH 47 MILLION

AMERICANS USED FOOD STAMPS IN

JUNE.

IT HAS DOUBLED IN THE LAST FOUR

YEARS AS OF SEPTEMBER 2011, IT

WAS AT A RECORD 75.7 BILLION

DOLLARS.

U.S. DEPARTMENT OF

AGRICULTURAL'S BIGGEST ANNUAL.

URGING GOVERNMENTS TO CURVE

RISING PRICES OF CORN AND WHEAT.

IT IS VERY SERIOUS RIGHT NOW.

WE HAVE SEEN FOOD PRICES HAVE

INCREASED SHARPLY IN THE MONTH

OF JULY, FOR SOYBEANS AND MAIZ.

U.N. SAYS GLOBAL FOOD PRICES

ROSE SIX PERCENT IN JULY, EVEN

BEGUN TO AFFECT DONATIONS TO

FOOD BANKS.

WE ARE BEGINNING TO SEE THE

IMPACTS HERE IN WASHINGTON

STATE, MANY OF THE PRODUCTS

TYPICALLY DONATED TO A TYPICAL

FOOD BANK ARE BEING DIVERTED.

LIVESTOCK FARMERS IN THE U.S.

DEMANDED THE GOVERNMENT RELAX

BIO PRODUCTION BECAUSE CORN FEED

IS SO EXPENSIVE.

40 PERCENT OF THE CORN CROP GOES

TO ETHANOL PRODUCTION.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE IN THE

PATH OF ISAAC ARE STILL IN THE

DARK A WEEK LATER.

WANTER REACHED TWO FEET HIGH IN

SOME PLACES AND SOME PLACES

STILL FLOODED.

OPERATION BLESSING STILL ON THE

SCENE HELPING OUT.

A FIRST RESPONDER APPLYING FOR

HELP.

YOU CAN SEE MORE TOMORROW ON OUR

NEWS CHANNEL AND "700 CLUB."

EVERYONE AFFECTING BY THAT

STORM.

FIREFIGHTERS ARE BATTLING A FIRE

IN CALIFORNIA, ALREADY BURNED

3600 ACRES, OFFICIALS CLOSED OFF

THE PARK'S CAMPGROUNDS.

FIRE MOVING AWAY FROM INHABITED

AREAS.

MANY RESIDENTS IN A PRIVATE

MOBILE HOME COMMUNITY EVACUATED

SUNDAY.

ABOUT 75 CHOSE TO STATE.

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU SAYS THE

INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY DOESN'T

HAVE THE RESOLVE TO DEAL WITH

IRAN'S NUCLEAR PROGRAM.

THE TIME HAS COME TO DRAW THE

RED LINE.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THAT STORY.

NETANYAHU SAYS HE IS GOING TO

THE UNITED NATIONS TO URGE WORLD

LEAD EVERIES TO GET TOUGH WITH

IRAN.

U.N. CHIEF BANKI MOON JOINED FOR

A MEETING.

LAST WEEK I DIDN'T SEE A LOT

OF DIPLOMATIC PRESSURE ON THE

COUNTRY.

SO 120 STATES PAY THEIR RESPECTS

TO IRAN.

DESPITE ECONOMIC SANCTIONS BY

THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY,

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU SAID IT IS

NOT ENOUGH.

CLEAR RED LINES NEED TO BE

SPELLED OUT TO TEHRAN.

THEY HAVE TO STOP THE NUCLEAR

PROGRAM.

THEY HAVE TO STOP ALL ENRICHMENT

AND MATERIAL THAT HAS ALREADY

BEEN ENRICHED HAS TO BE MOVED

OUT OF IRAN TO A THIRD COUNTRY.

THEY HAVE TO DISMANTLE THE

UNDERGROUND NUCLEAR FACILITY.

AT THE SUMMIT.

AYATOLLAH KHOMEINI INSISTED IT

IS FOR ENERGY ONLY.

THE INTERNATIONAL ATOMIC ENERGY

AGENCY SAID IRAN DOUBLED THE

NUMBER OF CENTRIFUGES IN COMB.

THE OPEN DISAGREEMENT CONTINUES.

CHIEF OF STAMP GENERAL DEMPSEY

SAID HE WOULDN'T WANT TO BE

COMPLY SIT.

U.S. DEFENSE LEON PANETTA WOULD

NOT ALLOW IRAN TO OBTAIN A

NUCLEAR WEAPON. WE HAVE

OPTIONS TO INSURE THAT DOES NOT

HAPPEN.

ISRAELI AHUED BARACK SAID

TIME HAS MOVED OUT.

WE HAVE CLEARLY SOMETHING TO

LOSE BECAUSE THE IRANIANS ARE

MOVING FORWARD.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

COMING UP, A QUESTION, HOW

MANY PARENTS CAN A CHILD HAVE?

ONE CALIFORNIA BILL AIMING TO

CHANGE THE DEFINITION OF

PARENTHOOD.

MANY EVANGELICAL LEADERS

DEEPLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE

HEALTH OF MARRIAGES THESE DAYS.

NATIONAL ASSOCIATON OF

EVANGELICALS CONDUCTED A SURVEY

OF MINISTRY LEADERS.

THEY SEE UNFAITHFULNESS AS THE

GREATEST THREAT.

FOLLOWED BY COUPLES LIVING

TOGETHER BEFORE MARRIAGE,

DIVORCE AND SAME-SEX MARRIAGE.

NO ONE PROBLEM DOMINATED.

GOD'S GIFT OF MARRIAGE IS

UNDERMINED BY TOO MANY BAD

CHOICES.

WE NEED A REVIVAL COMMITMENT OF

ONE MAN TO ONE WOMAN FOR A

LIFETIME.

CALIFORNIA GOVERNOR JERRY

BROWN WILL DECIDE TO BAN A BILL

TO MAKE CONVERSION THERAPY

ILLEGAL.

BILL SUPPORTERS SAY THE THERAPY

IS DANGEROUS.

THEIR RESEARCH IS STILL

INCOMPLETE.

RANDY THOMASSON OPPOSES THE BILL

ON THE GROUNDS IT ATTACKS

PARENTAL RIGHTS.

THIS IS THE INFRINGEMENT ON

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE

PROFESSIONAL COUNSELOR AND

CLIENTS.

THE STATE OUGHT NOT GO THERE.

A BILL THAT WOULD ALLOW

CHILDREN TO HAVE MULTIPLE

PARENTS.

SUCH A LAW WOULD CREATE CHAOS IN

THE COURSE.

IF A JUDGE SO DECREES, A

CHILD CAN HAVE THREE OR MORE

LEGAL PARENTS.

THINK ABOUT THE CONFLICT IN

CIVIL COURT, FAMILY COURT,

PROBATE COURTS, THINK ABOUT THE

PARENTS CONFLICTING FOR DECISION

MAKING IN THE CHILD'S LIFE.

SUPPORTERS SAY THE BILL IS

NEEDED DUE TO SURROGATE BIRTHS.

A THREE-WAY CIVIL UNION IN

BRAZIL, A PUBLIC NOTARY GRANTED

TWO WOMEN AND THE MAN THE RIGHT

TO LIVE TOGETHER IN A CIVIL

UNION.

THE THREE LOVE EACH OTHER AS

EQUALS.

THEY ARE LIKE ANY OTHER

NON-MARRIED COUPLE LIVING

TOGETHER.

THEY HAVE SOME OF THE LEGAL

BENEFITS.

THIRD PERSON CAN'T BE A LEGAL

PARENT TO A CHILD CONCEIVED BY

THE OTHERS.

BRAZILIAN LAW DEFINES MARRIAGE

AS A UNION BETWEEN TWO PEOPLE

AND POLYGAMY IS ILLEGAL. UP

NEXT, SYRIAN REFUGEES HAVE LOST

EVERYTHING AND STILL HAVE REASON

FOR HOPE.

THEIR INCREDIBLE STORY AFTER

THIS.

A RECORD NUMBER OF REFUGEES

POURING OUT OF SYRIA.

U.N. SAYS 100,000 FLED IN

AUGUST.

THAT IS THE HIGHEST MONTHLY

NUMBER SINCE THE CONFLICT BEGAN

LAST MARCH.

MORE THAN 230,000 SYRIANS ARE

SEEKING REFUGE IN OTHER

COUNTRIES.

ROAD CROSS SAYS SUPPLIES ARE

RUNNING LOW AND MANY AREAS ARE

IMPOSSIBLE TO ACCESS.

FIGHTING IS GETTING WORSE AS

REBELS TRY TO GAIN CONTROL OF

THE CITY OF ALEPO.

NEARLY 5,000 DIED IN AUGUST.

SITUATION IS GOING FROM BAD TO

WORSE THERE.

EVEN THOUGH IT IS THEIR HOME,

MANY SYRIANS CAN'T STAY ANY

LONGER.

CBN'S GARY LANE HAS THE STORY OF

ONE FAMILY AND HOW THEY FOUND

HOPE AFTER LOSING EVERYTHING.

REPORTER: GOVERNMENT WAR

PLANES BOMBED THIS AREA.

SYRIA IS MARKED BY DEATH,

DESTRUCTION AND DARKNESS.

TENS OF THOUSANDS FLEE FOR

REFU

REFUGE.

THEIR HOME DESTROYED.

NOW LIVE WITH HOMES IN ANOTHER

CITY.

IT IS SO HARD TO BE OUT OF

OUR HOME.

I AM SAD WE LEFT ALL OUR

MEMORIES BEHIND.

OUR CHURCH WAS DESTROYED.

MY CHILDREN WERE BAPTIZED THERE

AND MARRIED THERE.

WE HOPE GOD WILL KEEP US SAFE

AND EVERYTHING WILL BE OKAY.

MOST CHRISTIANS REMAIN IN

SYRIA.

OTHERS ARE LEAVING.

UNITED NATIONS LIST REFUGEES AT

170,000.

THEY HAVE ENDED UP IN TURKEY,

IRAQ, LEBANON AND JORDAN.

NEEDS OVERWHELMING.

CHURCHES ARE DOING WHAT THEY

CAN. MANY PEOPLE GET TO

JORDAN WITH THE SHIRT ON THEIR

BACK.

TOM DOYLE WORKS WITH

JORDANIAN CHRISTIANS TO BRING

HOPE TO THE REFUGEES.

MANY HAVE MOVED TO BORDER CAMPS.

THEY HAVE NOTHING IN THEIR EMPTY

APARTMENTS.

THAT IS WHERE THEY ARE GOING.

WE MET ONE FAMILY HELPED BY

THE EFFORT.

THEIR FACES ARE PROTECTED.

THIS MEDIC SERVED FOR IF ARMY

FOR REBEL MOVEMENT.

THAT LED GOVERNMENT AGENTS TO

TORTURE THEM.

THEY DIDN'T WANT REBELS TO

RECEIVE MEDICAL HELP.

THEY WERE SEEKING INFORMATION

ABOUT MY FRIENDS AND MOVEMENTS.

I REFUSED TO TELL THEM

EVERYTHING.

THEY BEAT ME SO BADLY.

I COULDN'T LIE DOWN FOR ONE

WEEK.

HE AND HIS FAMILY LATER FLED

TO JORDAN AND NOW LIVE IN THIS

APARTMENT.

HE IS UNEMPLOYED SO HIS SYRIAN

FRIEND PAYS THE RENT.

THEY HAVE MADE A LASTING IMPACT

ON HIS FAMILY.

THEY HAVE BEEN A GREAT HELP TO

US.

I SEE THEM AS BROTHERS.

I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THEM

BEING FROM A DIFFERENT FAITH.

SOME OF THE REFUGEES ATTEND

CHURCH SERVICES LIKE THIS ONE.

GOING TO THE CHURCH, WE

RESPECT OUR PRIDE AND DIGNITY.

MOST OF THE OTHER ORGANIZATIONS

ARE NOT PROVIDING HELP.

THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE IS THE

LOVE AND FEELINGS THAT

CHRISTIANS HAVE FOR US.

AS THE BELIEVERS GET A CHANCE

TO FEED HIM AND THEN THEY ARE

TRUSTED AS SAFE PEOPLE, THEY

HAVE HAD MANY OPPORTUNITIES TO

SHARE THE GOSPEL WITH SOME OF

THESE REFUGEES.

THERE ARE ENOUGH THAT THEY

STARTED SMALL HOUSE CHURCHES.

GOD IS BEING GLORIFIED IN THE

MIDST OF THIS MESS.

DOYLE TOLD US HE SAW IT

EFFECT THE THE LIFE OF THE

REFUGEES.

IT WAS MASS CHAOS.

THE WOMAN SAID IT WAS THE BIBLE

PEOPLE THAT CAME AND GAVE US

FOOD AND CLOTHES AND PLAYED.

IT WAS THE BIBLE PEOPLE THERE

FOR US.

WHEN SHE GOT DONE SHARING HER

STORY, SHE LOOKED AT MOE AND

SAID, I WANT YOU TO KNOW I LOVE

JESUS NOW.

OUT OF WARTIME TRAGEDY,

CHRISTIANS SHARING THE LOVE OF

CHRIST, GARY LANE, CBN NEWS,

AMON, JORDAN.

THERE IS AN OLD SAYING, YOU

HEARD IT, BLOOD IS THICKER THAN

WATER.

YOU ARE ABOUT TO MEET ONE

OHIO FAMILY THAT GIVES BLOOD

AWAY JUST LIKE IT IS WATER.

INSTEAD OF A COOKOUT OR LAZY

DAY AT THE POOL, THREE

GENERATIONS OF THE GOODMAN

FAMILY SPENT THEIR LABOR DAY

GAVE BLOOD.

IT WAS HEADED BY PATRIARCH.

FOR 86-YEAR-OLD ART GOODMAN IT

HAS BEEN A PRIORITY FOR 60

YEARS.

I WAS IN A FIELD HOUSE WITH A

DIRECT TRANSFUSION. HE IS

GIVEN AS OF TODAY 41.25 GALLONS.

HE MAY HAVE SAVED AS MANY AS

1320 LIVES.

IT IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE I MAY

PASS DOWN AND ENCOURAGE

GENERATION TO GENERATION DOING

THE RIGHT THING. ART HAS

HELPED SOME OF HIS OWN FAMILY

MEMBERS WHO ARE FIGHTING CANCER.

I LOVE THAT.

I NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT THAT.

HE MIGHT HAVE SAVED 1300 PEOPLE.

THAT IS A GREAT WAY TO

PROMOTE IT.

I LOVE THAT.

MAKES ME WANT TO GIVE BLOOD,

TOO.

THAT IS ALL FOR THIS EDITION OF

"NEWSWATCH."

GOOD NIGHT.
