ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." GOOD EVENING

EVERYONE I AM LEE WEB.

AND I AM HEATHER SELLS.

THE SMALL TOWN OF NEWTOWN,

CONNECTICUT IS BURYING CHILDREN.

SIX FUNERALS HAVE TAKEN PLACE

OVER THE LAST TWO DAYS.

INVESTIGATORS ARE LEARNING MORE

ABOUT FRIDAY'S HORRIFIC SHOOTING

AND SCHOOL OFFICIALS ARE

PREPARING A NEW BUILDING FOR THE

SURVIVING STUDENTS OF SANDY HOOK

REPORTER: AS MORE

INFORMATION ABOUT THE SHOOTER

ADAM LANZA COMES TO LIGHT, IT IS

CLEAR HIS MOTHER STRUGGLED FOR

YEARS TO HELP HIM WITH HIS

EMOTIONAL AND BEHAVIORAL

PROBLEMS.

SHE TOLD FRIENDS LATELY HE WAS

SO TROUBLED HE WOULDN'T LEAVE

HOME.

SHE HOME SCHOOLED HIM.

I KNEW HE WAS ON MEDICATION.

THAT IS ALL I KNOW.

REPORTER: THE TOWN IS MOVING

FORWARD AND ATTEND THIS UNUSED

MIDDLE SCHOOL IN THE TOWN OF

MONROE.

THEY WANT TO GIVE THE

CHILDREN THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE

THEIR NEW SCHOOL AND BECOME AS

COMFORTABLE AS THEY CAN IN THAT

NEW AREA.

FOR THIS WEEK, THE COMMUNITY

BEGIN TO BURY 20 OF ITS CHILDREN

AND 6 ADULTS.

AT THE FUNERAL FOR 6-YEAR-OLD

NOAH POZNER ONE ONLOOKER

COLLAPSE.

INSIDE HIS MOTHER MOVED WITH HER

STORIES.

HIS RABBI EXPLAINED WHEN HIS

MOTHER SAID I LOVE YOU HE WOULD

RESPOND WITH NOT AS MUCH AS I

LOVE.

SIX-YEAR-OLD JACK PINTO LOVED

THE NEW YORK GIANTS AND HIS

FAVORITE PLAYER WROTE HIS NUMBER

ON HIS CLEATS. IT WAS

UNREAL, I WAS COMPLETELY

HONORED.

FAMILY OF CHARLOTTE BACON,

JESSICA REKOS, DANIEL BARDEN AND

VICKI SOTO WERE BURIED.

FOR MOURNERS IN THIS SMALL

COMMUNITY, IT IS A WRENCHING

TOWN.

SAD TIME.

YOU SEE LITTLE COFFINS AND

YOUR HEART HAS TO ACHE.

THE BIBLE SAYS MOURN WITH

THOSE THAT MOURN AND GRIEVE WITH

THOSE THAT GRIEVE.

AS JENNIFER WISHON REPORTS, A

TEAM OF CHAPLAINS HAS DEPLOYED

TO DO JUST THAT.

THE DAY BEGINS WITH PRAYER

FOR ONE ANOTHER AND THE

COMMUNITY THEY HAVE ADOPTED.

SEE YOU OUT THERE, BE

CAREFUL.

CHAPLAINS FROM THE BILLY GRAHAM

ASSOCIATON RAPID RESPONSE TEAM.

FIRST GROUP ARRIVED IN NEWTOWN

HOURS AFTER THE LAST SHOTS RANG

THROUGH SANDY HOOK ELEMENTARY

SCHOOL.

WE HAVE A GRIEVING TOWN

INTENSE AGONY, PAIN THAT WITH

GOD'S GRACE HE CAN HEAL.

THERE IS HOPE.

MANY WORKED IN THE PAST AS

POLICE OFFICERS, FIREFIGHTERS

AND EMS.

THAT SERVICE HELPED THEM

IMMEDIATELY START MINISTERING TO

THE MEN AND WOMEN RESPONDING TO

A NIGHTMARE.

NOW THEY ARE REACHING OUT TO

ANYONE WHO NEEDS THEIR HELP.

IT IS BOTHERING ME, I

COULDN'T SLEEP AND I DID THINK

ABOUT THEM N.

THESE SEASONED PROFESSIONALS,

THE FACT THAT SO MANY OF THE

VICTIMS HERE IN NEWTOWN WERE SO

YOUNG MAKES THIS TRAGEDY, THIS

RESPONSE SO DIFFERENT.

ALL OF US ARE GRIEVING AND

ONE PARTICULAR CHAPLAIN SHARED,

I DON'T KNOW IF I CAN GO ON.

HERE WE ARE IN OUR THIRD, FOURTH

DAY.

WE ALSO KNOW WITH THE LORD'S

STRENGTH AND HELP, WE CAN GET

THROUGH IT.

I MADE THE COMMENT, IF YOU

AREN'T BROKEN AND GRIEVING, YOU

PROBABLY SHOULDN'T BE HERE.

THAT IS WHERE THE COMPASSION OF

CHRIST COMES OUT IN OUR OWN

BROKENNESS.

IT IS YOUR WAY OF SHOWING

RESPECT.

A FORMER TEACHER WHO FELT LED

TO NEWTOWN.

EVIL WAS IN THIS TOWN ON

FRIDAY.

LOOK AT THE GOOD HERE TODAY.

GOD IS WITH THESE PEOPLE VERY

EVIDENTLY.

IT IS, IT IS AN OUTWARD SHOW

THAT NORMALLY IS KEPT PRIVATE.

IT IS GOOD THAT PEOPLE ARE

TOGETHER.

YOU CAN'T WANDER FAR FROM THE

SCHOOL BEFORE BUMPING INTO ONE

OF THESE, COMFORT DOGS, QUIETLY

LENDING AN EAR TO SCRATCH.

THEY ARE BRIDGED FROM

MINISTRY, GIFTS FROM GOD.

DOGS ARE SAFE, SHOW

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.

PEOPLE WILL COME UP AND PET THE

DOG AND BREAK DOWN AND PET THE

DOG.

PEOPLE COME SAD AND WALK AWAY

HAPPY. CHAPLAINS CAN OFFER

HOPE TO EACH RESIDENT WAS

AFFECTED BY THE CRIME THAT NO

ONE THOUGHT COULD EVER HAPPEN

HERE, JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

NEWTOWN, CONNECTICUT.

IN THE WAKE OF THE SHOOTING,

LAWMAKERS ON ETHER SIDE OF THE

AISLE AGREE ACTION SHOULD BE

TAKEN.

DEMOCRATS CALLING FOR OUT RIGHT

BANDS ON ASSAULT RIFLES.

SOME REPUBLICANS SAY ARMING

TEACHERS WILL MAKE TEACHERS

SAFER.

PUT ASIDE THE R'S AND D'S

THERE IS A REASONABLE APPROACH

TO RESTRICT ACCESS TO SOME OF

THE MOST VIOLENT OF THESE

WEAPONS.

IN THE STATE OF TEXAS WITH

OUR CONCEALED HANDGUN LICENSE,

IF YOU GO THROUGHOUT PROCESS AND

HAVE BEEN DUALLY BACKGROUNDED

AND TRAINED AND YOU ARE A

CONCEALED HANDGUN LICENSED

CARRYING INDIVIDUAL, YOU SHOULD

BE ABLE TO CARRY YOUR HANDGUN

ANYWHERE IN THIS STATE.

LAWMAKERS CALLING FOR GUN

CONTROL WILL FACEOFF AGAINST GUN

RIGHT'S ADVOCATES ONE OF THE

STRONGEST LOBBYING TEAMS IN

WASHINGTON.

IS WASHINGTON CLOSER TO A

DEAL TO AVOID THE FISCAL CLIFF?

THERE ARE STILL PLENTY OF

DISPUTES.

HOUSE SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER IS

PROPOSING PLAN B.

BILL WOULD KEEP TAXES FROM

INCREASING ON PEOPLE MAKING LESS

THAN A MILLION DOLLARS WHILE

NEGOTIATIONS WITH PRESIDENT

OBAMA CONTINUE.

THOSE NEGOTIATIONS FOCUS ON THE

TAX HIKES AND SPENDING CUTS SET

TO TAKE PLACE IN THE NEW YEAR.

THE WHITE HOUSE QUICKLY SHOT

DOWN THAT PLAN SAYING THE DEAL

DOESN'T ASK ENOUGH OF THE

WEALTHIEST AMERICANS AND SHIFTS

BURDENS TO MIDDLE CLASS AND

SENIORS.

JOHN BOEHNER IS HOPEFUL.

AS THE DEADLY NEARERS SOME

WONDER IF PRESIDENT OBAMA IS

REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE

FISCAL CLIFF. PAUL STRAND

EXPLAINS.

REPORTER: IT EVEN BROUGHT

SANTA CLAUS TO THE HILL.

MY STAFF IS CONCERNED ABOUT

THE FATE OF CHILDREN AND

FAMILIES AND WHAT WILL HAPPEN

DUE TO THE CHILDISH SQUABBLING

HERE IN CONGRESS IF IT DOESN'T

END.

THERE IS MUCH PESSIMISM.

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS LIKELY TO

COME OUT A WINNER DEAL OR NO

DEAL.

PRESIDENT OBAMA MAY WANT TO GO

OVER THE FISCAL CLIFF.

HE MAYBE MORE WILLING TO GO

OVER AND THEREFORE ABLE IN

EFFECT TO CARRY OFF A BLUFF.

WHEREAS THE REPUBLICANS DON'T

REALLY HAVE A HAND OF CARDS TO

ALLOW THEM TO SUCCESSFULLY PULL

OUT A BLUFF.

POLLS SHOW GOP WILL BE

BLAMED.

THE PRESIDENT CAN PROPOSE THIS

TO A NEW CONGRESS.

TAX CUT FOR THE LOWER 98%

THAT WOULD BE VERY HARD FOR

REPUBLICANS TO RESIST.

WHAT REPUBLICAN WHO IS ALWAYS

TALKING ABOUT THE BENEFITS OF

TAX CUTS AND SMALLER GOVERNMENT

IS GOING TO VOTE AGAINST A TAX

CUT THAT WOULD HELP 98% OF

AMERICANS.

98% OF TAX PAYORS.

OBAMA WOULD HAVE ISOLATED 2%

OF WEALTHY AMERICANS HE INSISTS

PAY MORE TAXES.

DEMOCRATS WILL GET ALL THAT

EXTRA TAX MONEY FROM ALL

AMERICANS.

THEY ARE IN A COMMANDING

POSITION.

WITH ALL THE CARDS SO STACKED

AGAINST REPUBLICANS, SOME

CONSERVATIVES SAY GOP LAWMAKERS

SHOULD THROW IN THE TOWEL.

BILL CRYSTAL SAYS IF WE GO OVER

THE CLIFF THERE WON'T BE DAMAGE

TO OBAMA'S CHANCE OF SECOND TERM

SUCCESS.

QUITE THE CONTRARY.

REPUBLICANS WILL HAVE MADE

DEMOCRATS THE PARTY OF TAX CUTS

AN OBAMA A PRESIDENT FIGHTING

FOR ECONOMIC GROWTH.

HANNA AND OTHER DIE HARDS GOP

LEADERS SHOULD FIGHT TO THE

BITTER END.

HIGHER TAXES ON THE WEALTHY 2%

WILL ONLY RAISE A SMALL AMOUNT

OF WHAT IS NEEDED.

THIS 2% FIGHT IS ONLY SOLVING

8% OF THE PROBLEM.

WITHOUT MASSIVE SPENDING

CUTS, EVERYONE'S TAXES NEED TO

GO UP 60% TO DIG OUT.

AMERICAN WOULD PLUNGE OVER A

MUST WORST FISCAL CLIFF.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS, WA

WASHINGTON.

PEOPLE IN HAWAII ARE MOURNING

DEATH OF SENATOR DANIEL INOA.

THE 88-YEAR-OLD DEMOCRAT DIED

DUE TO COMPLICATIONS.

HE BROKE BARRIERS AS FIRST

JAPANESE-AMERICAN TO SERVE IN

CONGRESS.

HE WAS A WAR HERO DURING WORLD

WAR II AND PLAYED KEY ROLES ON

WATER GATE AND IRON CONTRA

SCANDALS.

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAILED HIM A

TRUE AMERICAN HERO.

COMING UP, DR. LINDA MENTAL

TALKS ABOUT THE NUMBER OF KIDS

BEING BORN TO UNWED PARENTS.

A NEW STUDY SHOWS MORE

CHILDREN ARE NOW BORN OUTSIDE OF

MARRIAGE.

NATIONAL MARRIAGE PROJECT AND

INSTITUTE FOR AMERICAN VALUES

RELEASED THE STUDY FOCUSSING ON

WHAT IT CALLS MIDDLE AMERICA,

THE NEARLY 60% OF AMERICANS WHO

COMPLETE HIGH SCHOOL BUT NOT

COLLEGE.

AMONG THAT GROUP, 44% OF

CHILDREN ARE NOW BORN OUTSIDE OF

MARRIAGE.

THAT IS UP FROM 13% IN 1980S.

DR. BRAD WILLCOX SAYS MARRIAGE

IS AT A MIDPOINT WITH UNWED

CHILD IS THE NEW NORM.

CHILDREN RAISED OUTSIDE OF A

MARRIAGE MORE LIKELY TO SUFFER

FROM PROBLEMS.

JOINING US IS DR. LINDA MINTLE,

AUTHOR OF "RAISING HEALTHY KIDS

IN AN UNHEALTHY WORLD."

LINDA, LET ME ASK YOU, WHY IS

THIS THE NEW NORMAL?

DOES IT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH

THE MEDIA?

MEDIA CERTAINLY ARE THE

INFLUENCE.

YOU THINK ABOUT THE CELEBRITY

CULTURE, LEE, CELEBRITIES MAKE

IT FASHIONABLE AND DESTIGMATIZE

AND SOMETHING YOU WOULD

GLAMOURIZE.

CELEBRITIES HAVE A LOT OF MONEY

SO WHEN THEY ARE LIVING IN

SINGLE PARENTING HOMES, THEY ARE

NOT EXPERIENCING THE TRUE

REALITIES THAT MIDDLE AMERICA IS

EXPERIENCING.

LET ME SAY THIS, LEE, I THINK

THIS IS MORE THE KEY OF WHAT IS

GOING.

I THINK WE ARE REAPING WHAT WE

SOW IN THE 1990S WITH THE

DIVORCE REVOLUTION.

YOUNG ADULTS WHO ARE ADULT

CHILDREN OF DIVORCE WHO ARE

WOUNDED, HURT, DON'T WANT TO

EXPERIENCE THE SAME TYPE OF PAIN

AND BRING THAT INTO THEIR

FAMILIES AS CHILDREN OF DIVORCE.

LINDA, I DON'T KNOW IF I HAVE

EVER MET A CHILD A PRODUCT OF

DIVORCE WHO HAS NOT BEEN

AFFECTED.

UNFORTUNATELY IT ISN'T GOOD.

WE DON'T LIKE TO TALK ABOUT THIS

IN MEDIA BECAUSE THERE ARE SO

MANY PEOPLE DEALING WITH

DIVORCE.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT KIDS RAISED IN

UNMARRIED HOUSE HOLDS YOU TEND

TO SEE INCREASED RISK OF

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, CHILD ABUSE,

DEPRESSION, OF SUICIDE, DRUG

USE, DROPPING OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL

AND THE LIST GOES ON.

THOSE ARE ENOUGH TO BE

CONCERNED.

THIS IS NOT THE BEST PLACE FOR

KIDS TO BE RAISED.

THEY NEED TWO PARENTS IN A

FAMILY LIVING AND WORKING

TOGETHER.

AS YOU KNOW AND I KNOW EVEN

AMONG CHRISTIANS THIS IS NOT

TERRIBLY UNCOMMON.

IT HAS BEEN MY EXPERIENCE MOST

CHURCHES, EVEN EVANGELICALISM

FAIL TO HOLD DIVORCE COUPLES TO

ACCOUNT THE WHAT THEY ARE ABOUT

TO DO TO THEMSELVES AND

CHILDREN.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE THE

CHURCH DO IN THIS CASE?

I WOULD LIKE THE CHURCH TO

HAVE A MUCH MORE CLEAR DIALOGUE

THE FACT THAT GOD IS THE SAME

YESTERDAY, TODAY AND FOREVER,

DIVORCE REALLY IS A PROBLEM FOR

THE CHURCH.

WE NEED TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT

PROBLEM, HELP PEOPLE WITH THE

PROBLEM.

I HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN A VIDEO

SERIES CALLED "DIVORCE CARE" FOR

YEARS.

IT IS A HEALING PROGRAM.

LET'S GET ON A PREVENTION END

AND GO THE DISTANCE IN MARRIAGE.

WE HAVE TO TACKLE THE THOUGHT.

COMMUNITY THINKS, CULTURE THINKS

IT IS NO BIG DEAL BECAUSE IT IS

A BIG DEAL.

TOO MANY MARRIAGES, I AM A

MARRIAGE THERAPIST WITH 30 YEARS

OF EXPERIENCE, TOO MANY

MARRIAGES DIVORCE OVER FIXABLE

PROBLEMS.

IT IS THERE.

WE KNOW HOW TO HELP PEOPLE.

LINDA MINTLE THANK YOU FOR

BEING WITH US AND SHARING YOUR

TIME, WE APPRECIATE IT.

THANKS SO MUCH.

UP NEXT, A ONE IN A MILLION

MILESTONE WILL GO ON SPECIAL

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

EVERY CHRISTMAS GIFT FILLED

TRAINS AND EVEN ELEPHANTS.
