TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH"

FREEDOM SUNDAY, PASTORS GET

SPECIFIC ABOUT POLITICAL

ENDORSEMENTS, IS IT FREE SPEECH

OR BREAKING THE LAW?

PLUS TWO SCIENTISTS WIN NOBEL

PRIZE FOR THEIR BREAK THROUGH IN

ADULT STEM CELL RESEARCH.

WHY IT IS A VICTORY FOR LIFE.

HUMAN TRAFFICKERS TARGETING

CHRISTIAN WOMEN.

FORCED MARRIAGE AND CONVERSION

IS ON THE RISE.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH."

GOOD EVENING I AM LEE WEB.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

IT IS CALLED PULPIT FREEDOM

SUNDAY.

FREE SPEECH AND RELIGION BY

OPENING TALKING ABOUT POLITICS

AND ENDORSING CANDIDATES FROM

THEIR PULL PUTS.

IRS SAY IT IS AGAINST THE LU.

BISHOP HARRY JACKSON IS KNOWN

FOR SPEAKING HIS MIND.

ON SUNDAY HE DELIVERED A FIERY

SERMON AND THE COUNTRY'S STATE

OF AFFAIRS AND BREAKING THE LAW

DESIGNED TO INFLUENCE THE 2012

ELECTION. THIS IS FOR A

REASON, WHY I CANNOT SUPPORT

BARACK OBAMA FOR PRESIDENT.

DURING THE SERVICE HE ARGUED

AGAINST RE-ELECTING THE

PRESIDENT BASED ON ABORTION,

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE, U.S.-ISRAELI

ALLIANCE AND .

I BELIEVE ON EVERYTHING.

IT IS TIME TO SHOW OUR HEART TO

THE WORLD AND GOD HIMSELF THAT

WE ARE NOT GOING TO BE COWARDS

AND CAN'T SURRENDER TO THE

MERCIES HE HAS GIVEN US.

THEY ALSO DEFIED A DECADES

OLD REGULATION THAT ALLOWS

CHURCHES TO ACT AS TAX EXEMPT SO

LONG AS THEY DON'T PARTICIPATE

IN ANY POLITICAL CAMPAIGNING ON

BEHALF OR AGAINST ANY CANDIDATE.

IF THEY DO, THEY RISK LOSING

THEIR NON-EXEMPT STATUS. THE

NUMBER SKYROCKETED TO 1500 WITH

EACH OF THE PASSITORS RECORDING

THEIR SERMON.

THE BACKLASH AND RETRIBUTION

THAT CAN COME FROM THAT

COMMUNITY IN THE GREATER

WASHINGTON, D.C. AREA IS MUCH

MORE INTIMIDATING THAN THE IRS,

IN TERMS OF MY MEMBERS HAVE TO

DEAL WITH WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY.

IT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO

LIFT UP TO THE NAME OF JESUS.

THEY SAY THE ISSUES AT STAKE ARE

TOO GRAVE TO REMAIN SILENT.

JOHN JESSUP, CBN NEWS,

BELTSVILLE, MARYLAND.

ERICK STANLEY IS SENIOR LEGAL

COUNSEL WITH THE ADF AND JOINS

US FROM KANSAS CITY.

ERICK, YOU ARE DARING IF NOT

DOUBLE DARING THE IRS TO COME

AFTER THESE CHURCHES.

WILL YOU CONCERNED THEY MIGHT DO

THAT?

HOPE OF PULPIT FREEDOM SUNDAY

HAS BEEN TO GENERATE A TEST

CASE.

WE BELIEVE THE JOHNSON AMENDMENT

IS PLAY TENTLY UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

IF THE IRS COMES AFTER THE

CHURCH, WE'LL DEFEND THEM FREE

OF CHARGE.

THE LAW ASIDE, ERICK, WHY DO

YOU BELIEVE IT IS THE BIBLICAL

ROLE OF CHURCHS? I THINK IT

IS THE BIBLICAL ROLE OF PASTORS

AND CHURCHES TO SPEAK BIBLICAL

TRUTH.

SOCIETY HAS BEEN LABELLING --

BILLING ISSUES POLITICAL.

PASTORS HAVE A CHOICE TO

UNDERSTAND AND DECIDE, ARE THEY

GOING TO CONTINUE TO SPEAK

BIBLICALLY?

OR ARE THEY GOING TO REMAIN

FAITHFUL TO BIBLICAL VALUES AND

PROCLAIM THE VALUES EVEN IF THEY

BRING THEM INTO CONFLICT WITH

THE CULTURE OR GOVERNMENT.

WE WANT TO MAKE SURE A PASTOR

HAS A RIGHT TO SPEAK FREELY FROM

HIS PULPIT.

GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT BE DRAWING

LINES IN THE PULPIT, IT IS THE

JOB OF THE PASTOR, NOT THE IRS.

YOU MENTIONED YOU LIKED A

TEST CASE.

WHAT IF YOU WOULD LOSE THAT CASE

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN TO THE

CHURCHES?

I DON'T THINK WE WOULD LOSE.

THEY SPOKE A LOT ABOUT THE

JOHNSON AMENDMENT.

501C 3 IS IN TROUBLE.

HAVE ANY CHURCHES BEEN

THREATENED BY THE IRS TODAY?

WE HAD OVER 1600 CHURCHES

PARTICIPATE YESTERDAY.

WE'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

ERICK STANLEY, THANKS FOR

JOINING US.

THANK YOU.

NEW

MITT ROMNEY SPOKE AT VIRGINIA

MILITARY INSTITUTE NO LEXINGTON,

VIRGINIA.

HE WENT POINT BY POINT THROUGH

THE CONFLICTS IN LIBYA, SYRIA

AND AFGHANISTAN SAYING THE WORLD

IS WAITING FOR THE UNITED STATES

TO LEAD.

IT IS CLEAR THAT THE RISK OF

CONFLICT IN THE REGION IS HIGHER

NOW THAN WHEN THE PRESIDENT TOOK

OFFICE.

I KNOW THE PRESIDENT HOPES FOR A

SAFER, FREER, MORE PROSPEROUS

MIDDLE EAST, I SHARE THIS HOPE.

BUT HOPE IS NOT A STRATEGY.

ROMNEY LAID OUT FULL SUPPORT

FOR THE JEWISH STATE OF ISRAEL

AND WOULDN'T HESITATE TO STOP

IRAN'S DEVELOPMENT OF NUCLEAR

WEAPONS.

NEXT PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE FOCUS

ON FOREIGN POLICY.

A RASMUSSEN POLL SHOWS MITT

ROMNEY LEADING 49-47 PERCENT

ALONG LIKELY VOTERS.

ANOTHER HAS ROMNEY WINNING THE

ELECTORAL COLLEGE.

THAT MODEL HAS ACCURATELY PICKED

THE WINNER SINCE 1980.

DEMOCRATS RAISED 181 MILLION

DOLLARS SHATTERING PAST RECORDS.

THE PRESIDENT WILL HAVE RAISED

MORE THAN A BILLION DOLLARS TO

PAY FOR HIS E ELECTION BID.

ABU ALMASER FOUGHT

EXTRADITION TO THE U.S. ARRESTED

IN THE UK FOR INCITING HATRED

AND URGING FOLLOWERS TO KILL

NON-MUSLIMS.

TWO OF THE TOURISTS KIDNAPPED

WERE AMERICANS.

U THE COUNTRY'S LARGEST MUSLIM

REBEL GROUP HAVE REACHED A

PRELIMINARY PEACE AGREEMENT.

IT HAS LEFT MORE THAN 120,000

DEAD.

PHILIPPINES PRESIDENT AKINO SAYS

THE DEAL PAVES THE WAY FOR AN

ENDURING PEACE IN MINDANAO.

TURNING TO SOUTH AMERICA WITH

VENEZUELA CHAVEZ HAS WON ANOTHER

OFFICE.

CHAVEZ ONE 55-45 PERCENT.

EXIT POLLING BY AN INDEPENDENCE

COMPANY SHOWS CHAVEZ LOST.

HE USED UNFAIR TACTICS FROM THE

START LABELLING HIS OPPONENT

FASCIST.

HE SPENT HEAVILY ON HIS OWN

CAMPAIGN AND ALSO BUYING VOTES.

BUILDING PUBLIC HOUSING AND

EXPANDING SOCIAL PROGRAMS.

HE TOLD HIS VOTERS YOU VOTED FOR

THE GREATEST OF VENEZUELA.

WE WILL HAVE A FREER HAND TO

CRUSH OPPONENTS AND DEEPEN

FRIENDSHIPS WITH ROGUE NATIONS

LIKE CUBA AND IRAN THREATENING

U.S. INTEREST IN THE REGION.

THERE ARE NO WORDS RIGHT NOW.

WE NEED TO BE CALM AND HOPE

VENEZUELA CAN MOVE PASSED THIS.

IF CHAVEZ DIES, KA PRIUS WILL

HAVE ANOTHER CHANCE.

CONVENTIONAL WISDOM BY --

THEIR WORK IS REWARDED WITH THE

NOBEL PRIZE.

A TERMINALLY ILL WOMAN WHO

WON THING RIGHT TO GO OFF LIFE

SUPPORT HAS DECIDED TO STAY

ALIVE.

A COURT RULED 28-YEAR-OLD GRACE

LEE CAN GO OFF HER RESPIRATOR.

FOR NOW SHE HAS CONTINUED TO

RECEIVE IT.

KNOWING SHE HAS HER OWN

CONTROL IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT

TO GRACE.

WITH THAT KNOWLEDGE, SHE INTENDS

TO CONSULT WITH HER FAMILY AND

HER DOCTORS ON AN ONGOING BASIS.

GRACE HAS TERMINAL CANCER.

LAST MONTH A STROKE LEFT HER

PARALYZED AND ON LIFE SUPPORT.

GRACE'S DOCTORS AND ATTORNEYS

CLAIM SHE WANTED TO DIE.

HER PARENTS DISAGREED AND SAID

IT WAS AGAINST THEIR RELIGION TO

TAKE LIFE INTO THEIR OWN HANDS.

HER ATTORNEY SAID IT GAVE HER

PEACE AND DECIDED TO STAY ON

LIFE SUPPORT.

IT IS AN EFFORT TO MAKE PEACE

WITH HER FAMILY AND GOD.

NOBEL PEACE PRIZE AND NOBEL

PRIZE FOR MEDICINE HAS GONE TO

TO PEOPLE WITH DISEASES.

THEY ARE PIONEERING WORK

USING ADULT STEM CELLS WITHOUT

DESTROYING LIVING EMBRYOS.

LORIE JOHNSON EXPLAINS.

SCIENTISTS JOHN GURDEN FROM

THE UK AND SHIN YAMIAKA SHOWED

YOU THE TAKE IT OUT OF AN ADULT

PATIENT, PUT THE HEALTHY CELL

INTO THE PATIENT IN THE PART OF

THE BODY THAT IS SICK, SUCH AS

BRAIN, SPINE, HEART.

THAT HEALTHY CELL REGENERATES

AND TAKES OVER THE SICK AREA

MAKING THE PATIENT WELL AGAIN.

TECHNIQUE HAS PROVED SUCCESSFUL

WITH HEART PATIENTS AT THE STUDY

OF THE UNIVERSITY OF LOUISVILLE.

THE DOCTOR TOOK CELLS FROM THE

HEALTHY PART OF THE PATIENT AN

INFUSED THEM INTO THE HEART

TALKING REGENERATION OF

PREVIOUSLY DEAD HEART TISSUE.

IT MEANS FRESH HOPE FOR PEOPLE

WITH HEART FAILURE. IT IS

HOPE.

I THINK STEM CELLS WILL LIKELY

BECOME A ROUTINE PART OF

CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE IN THE

NEXT FEW YEARS.

THIS IS ESPECIALLY GOOD NEWS

FOR CHRISTIANS AND OTHERS THAT

BELIEVE IN THE SANCTITY OF LIFE.

MUCH OF THE SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY

BELIEVED IT NEEDS TO START WITH

LIVING HUMAN EMBRYOS.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

CATHOLIC ARCHDIOCESE IS

ENDING SUPPORT FOR KOMEN

FOUNDATION.

KOMEN EARLIER ANNOUNCED IT WOULD

STOP DONATIONS TO PLANNED

PARENTHOOD.

A FIRE STORM OF CRITICISM -- SO

THE THEY REINSTATED IT.

PRO-LIFE GROUPS CLAIM PLANNED

PARENTHOOD PROVIDES LIMITED

BREAST CANCER SCREENINGS AND

REFERS MOST CASES TO OTHER

ORGANIZATIONS.

UP NEXT, WHY CHRISTIAN WOMEN

IN ANOTHER PART OF THE WORLD

FEAR THEY WILL BE THE NEXT

VICTIMS OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING.

NUMBER OF DEAD IN AN ATTACK

ON CHRISTIAN COLLEGE STUDENTS IN

NIGERIA NOW UP TO 46.

IT HAPPENED IN NORTHWEST CITY OF

MUBIA.

THOUSANDS FLED IS CITY.

SURVIVORS SAYS THEY ASKED THEM

IF THEY WERE MUSLIM OR

CHRISTIANS BEFORE THEY STABBED

OR SHOT THEM.

THEY ARE SO SYSTEMATIC IN

RELIGIOUS CLEANSING, SOME

CHRISTIANS THAT HAVE

ISLAMIC-SOUNDING NAMES, THEY

CHECKED BY ASKING THEM IF THEY

COULD CITE THE KORAN.

FOR THE FULL INTERVIEW GO TO

CBNNEWS.COM.

THOUSANDS OF EGYPTIAN

CHRISTIANS TO SEEK ASYLUM UNTIL

THE WEST.

MANY ARE WOMEN WHO FEAR THEY ARE

TARGETS FOR CONVERSION AND

FORCED MARRIAGE.

GARY LANE BRINGS US THE

TRAFFICKING OF YOUNG EGYPTIAN

WOMEN.

AN EGYPTIAN CHRISTIAN WEEPS

OVER HER MISSING DAUGHTER, MARY.

SHE WAS OUR ONLY DAUGHTER, WE

SPOILED HER.

SHE WAS VERY SHY.

WE WERE CLOSE FRIENDS.

SHE NEVER WENT ANYWHERE WITHOUT

ME.

SHE ALWAYS ASKED ME TO GO WITH

HER.

MARY WON MATHEMATICAL

ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS.

SHE ENTERED PHARMACOLOGY.

ONE NIGHT WHEN THE TWO WOMEN

WENT OUT FOR PIZZA AND A MOVIE,

MARY FELL ILL.

WE KNEW SHE WAS MISSING

BECAUSE SHE DIDN'T COME HOME

THAT NIGHT.

WE BELIEVE HER MUSLIM FRIENDS

PUT DRUGS IN HER FOOD AND HIRE

PEOPLE TO KIDNAP HER.

THEY SAID MARY CONVERTED TO

ISLAM AND MARRIED.

THEY BELIEVED THEIR DAUGHTER WAS

A VICTIM OF A VAST NETWORK

TARGETING CHRISTIAN WOMEN.

ALL WAS COORDINATED BETWEEN

GOVERNMENT AND POLICE.

EVERYONE WAS IN ON IT.

OFFICIALS SUMMONED MARY TO

THE POLICE STATION WHERE HER

FATHER WAITED TO SEE HER.

FOUR VEILED LADIES AND BEERED

MEN WALKED INTO THE POLICE

STATION.

AS THEY WALKED BY MY HUSBAND

SCREAMED OUT OUR DAUGHTER'S

ANYMORE, MARY.

MARY TURNED AROUND, HE PUSHED

HER AWAY AND PUNCHED HER IN THE

FACE.

OVERCOME BY RAGE, MARY'S

FATHER DEMANDED TO SPEAK TO HER.

THEY SAID THEY CLOSED THE CASE

BECAUSE SHE IS NOW A MUSLIM.

THIS USED TO BE A HOME OF

LAUGHTER.

HER BED REMAINS EMPTY FIVE YEARS

LATER.

EMOTIONAL HURT LINGERS.

SHE WAS A DEVOUT CHRISTIAN.

THERE WAS NO WAY SHE WOULD HAVE

WILLINGLY EMBRACED ISLAM.

THE NUMBER OF DISAPPEARANCES AND

ABDUCTION OF EGYPTIAN CHRISTIAN

GIRLS IS INCREASING.

KIDNAPINGS OF UNDERAGED FEMALES

AND MOTHERS OF YOUNG CHILDREN

ALSO ON THE RISE.

THIS WOMAN TESTIFIED BEFORE THE

COMMISSION.

DEBUNKING ARGUMENTS THAT SUGGEST

CHRISTIAN GIRLS ARE LEAVING

FAITH AND FAMILIES SIMPLY FOR

ROMANCE.

THEY SAY YES TO FRIENDSHIP,

ROMANCE, HOPE, FUTURE, SAFETY

AND SECURITY.

NEVERTHELESS, DID NOT CONSENT TO

BEING RIPPED FROM THEIR FAMILY

WITHOUT EVER BEING ABLE TO SEE

THEM AGAIN.

NOR SHE SAYS DID THESE

CHRISTIAN WOMEN CONSENT TO BEING

FORCIBLY CONVERTED OR CONSENT TO

A LIFE OF CAPTIVITY.

WHAT SHOULD BE DOWN?

WALLACE FARRIS SAYS THEY MUST

DISCUSS IT WITH PRESIDENT MORSI.

OUR OFFICIALS ARE DEMANDING

FROM THE FUTURE ELECTED OR

CURRENT PARLIAMENT THAT THESE

ISSUES WOULD BE AT THE TABLE.

THAT THE CONSTITUTIONAL

COMMITTEE LOOKING AT THE FUTURE

CONSTITUTION WILL TAKE

CONSIDERATION THESE ELEMENTS.

PROFESSOR CLARK SAYS THEY

NEED TO CREATE A NATIONAL

REGISTRY.

THE EGYPTIAN NATIONAL

GOVERNMENT WILL REQUEST ALL

COUNTING INCLUDING OPEN AND

ONGOING CASE AS WELL AS

PROSECUTION.

EGYPTIAN LEADERS ARE

PROPOSING STRICTER RULES -- THIS

WOMAN WILL NOT GIVE UP SEARCHING

FOR HER DAUGHTER. I WILL

KEEP TRYING TO GET HER BACK.

I BELIEVE IN GOD'S PROMISES.

I TRUST THE LORD WILL NEVER

FORSAKE US.

I ASK EVERYBODY TO PRAY.

I AM CONFIDENT THE DAY WILL COME

WHEN I WILL SEE OR MEET HER

AGAIN.
