TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH" BOY

SCOUT BAN.

WHAT LIFTING THE RULE ON GAY

MEMBERS COULD MEAN FOR THE

ORGANIZATION.

PLUS EVIDENCE HEADS TO

CAPITOL HILL AND THE LATER ON

PUBLIC REFORM.

AND HOW THE DIFFERENT KINDS

OF FAT IN FOOD AFFECTS OUR

HEALTH.

ALL THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH."

WILL THE BOY SCOUTS ALLOW GAY

MEMBERS?

GOOD EVENING.

I AM WENDY GRIFFITH, IT'S A

MOMENT OF TRUTH FOR THE BOY

SCOUTS OF AMERICA, TOMORROW THEY

ARE TO VOTE ON WHETHER OR NOT TO

LIFT THE BAN ON GAY MEMBERS.

SCOUTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY SAY

THIS MOVE WOULD BE HUGE.

FOR THE SCOUTS THE STAKES

COULDN'T BE HIGHER.

CHURCHES SPONSOR 69% OF ALL

SCOUT UNITS.

THE LARGEST IS JESUS CHRIST OF

LATTER DAY SAINTS AND SOUTHERN

BAPTIST LEADERS, AND THEY HAVE

SPOKEN AGAINST IT.

IT WAS BLOGGED THAT THE PROPOSED

POLICY IS ALMOST SURE NOT TO

PLEASE ANYONE AND LEADING TO

DISASTER FOR THE SCOUTS.

AND A WARNING THAT LIFTING THE

BAN WOULD JEOPARDIZE TROOPS OF

THE POLICY.

IN THE SOUTHEAST 80% OF THE

MEMBERS.

THE BOY SCOUTS HAVE 3 MILLION

MEMBERS.

AND THESE HAVE BEEN SOLD ON

MEMBERSHIP STANDARDS AS THEY

HAVE BEEN FOR A LONG TIME.

WE ARE RUNNING INTO A SHIFT IN

THOSE STANDARDS, AND MANY

CONCERNED.

GAY ACTIVISTS DELIVERED ONE

MILLION SIGNATURES BUT TO ALLOW

GAYS AS MEMBERS DOES NOT GO FAR

ENOUGH.

THERE SHOULD BE A NATIONWIDE

POLICY TO ACCEPT SCOUTS AS GAYS

AND LEADERSHIP.

THIS IS IN SERIOUS DECLINE.

AT THE MOMENT PEOPLE ARE

SITTING ON THE FENCE AND DON'T

KNOW IF THEY WANT THEIR FAMILIES

TO INVEST IN THE MEMBERSHIP,

BECAUSE THEY WANT TO KNOW THE

OUTCOME OF THIS DECISION.

TOMORROW THOSE OPPOSED TO

LIFTING THE BAN WILL HOLD A

PRAYER VIGIL IN TEXAS.

AND BOTH SIDES ARE URGING THEM

TO CALL HEADQUARTERS TODAY IN A

LAST DITCH TO SAVE THE SCOUTS.

JOINING NOW IS ROB

SWARTZEGER.

A DAD AND WITH TWO BOY SCOUTS.

FIRST AS A DAD, HOW WILL BE

HANDLE IT WITH YOUR KIDS?

THAT'S A VERY IMPORTANT

QUESTION, MARK, IF WE HAVE ONE

TROOP THAT AFFIRMS HOMOSEXUALITY

AS A MORAL GOOD AND ANOTHER

SCOUT SAYING THAT HOMOSEXUALITY

IS MORALLY WRONG.

WHAT KIND OF MESSAGE IS THIS?

I STRUGGLE WITH THIS.

EVERY WEEK WE TAKE AN OATH AND

THAT COULD MEAN SOMETHING TO US

AND SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

THERE IS THAT MORAL ISSUE THAT

FALLS APART.

AND A HUGE CONCERN IS THE MORAL

OBJECTIVES OF THE SCOUTING.

JUST LAST YEAR THEY ISSUED A

NATIONWIDE POLL THEY HAD DONE

OVER A TWO-YEAR PERIOD.

THEIR PHRASE IS THAT THE VAST

MAJORITY OF PARENTS AND SCOUTS

DON'T WANT THEIR CHILDREN TO

DEAL WITH ISSUES.

MEANING THEY DON'T THEM TO DEAL

WITH HOMOSEXUALITY AT SUCH A

YOUNG AGE.

WHAT HAS CHANGED IN THE LAST

MONTHS?

THE CONSISTENCY OF BEING BRAVE

AND TRUE IS THE QUESTION.

WE HEARD THAT CHURCHES

SPONSOR 69% OF THE SCOUTS IN THE

U.S., AND WHAT DO YOU HEAR FROM

THE CHURCHES AND HOW DO THEY

RESPOND TO THIS CHANGE IN THE

BOY SCOUTS?

I AM HEARING

BEHIND-THE-SCENES THAT CATHOLIC

AND LDS MEMBERS WOULD OPPOSE

HAVING HOMOSEXUALS, AND NOT

BECAUSE THEY HATE GAYS BUT THAT

FOR CHRISTIANITY, THE ONLY

SEXUAL ACTIVITY IS BETWEEN A MAN

AND WOMAN IN MARRIAGE.

ALL OTHER FORMS ARE SEEN WRONG.

I DON'T WANT A HETEROSEXUAL

ADULTER TO MENTOR MY SON AS I

WOULDN'T WANT A GAY MAN TO

MENTOR MY SON BUT TO FOLLOW THE

CHRISTIAN VALUES.

THANK YOU, ROB FOR SHARING

YOUR INSIGHTS TONIGHT.

THANK YOU, AND OVERSEAS A NEW

REPORT BLAMING HEZBOLLAH OF THE

BOMBING OF FIVE IN JULY.

CARRIED OUT ON A TOURIST BUS.

AND NETANYAHU SAYS THAT THE

REPORT IS FURTHER PROOF THAT

HEZBOLLAH IS A GLOBAL TERRORIST

NETWORK.

NETANYAHU SAYS THAT THE EU

SHOULD DRAW NEW CONCLUSIONS

ABOUT THE QUOTE, TRUE CHARACTER

OF HEZBOLLAH.

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS PLANNING

HIS FIRST TRIP TO ISRAEL SINCE

TAKING OFFICE IN 2008.

THE VISIT IS TO BE THIS SPRING.

BUT THE WHITE HOUSE HAS NOT

RELEASED THE DATES.

LAST CAMPAIGNING BEFORE THE 2012

ELECTION, THAT HAS DRAWN IN

CRITICISM FROM SOME PRO-ISRAEL

GROUPS, SAYING THAT THE UNITED

STATES IS NOT CLOSE TO THEIR

CLOSEST ALLY IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

AN ANNOUNCEMENT THROUGH A NEW

MEMO OF THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION HAS

BEEN SEARCHING FOR LEGAL

JUSTIFICATION FOR ITS DRONE

STRIKES AGAINST U.S. CITIZENS

OVERSEAS THAT HAVE LINKS TO

AL-QAEDA.

THE MEMO PROVIDES A MORE BROADER

DEFINITION OF THOSE AMERICANS

WHO POSE A THREAT.

NOW ONLY NEEDS TO SHOW THAT THEY

ARE INVOLVED IN PLOTTING AGAINST

THE U.S.

THE UNITED STATES MAY NOT BE

AWARE OF ALL AL-QAEDA PLOTS AS

THEY DEVELOPING.

THE LIBERAL LIBERTIES GROUP SAYS

THAT THE MEMO IS DISTURBING.

TODAY IN ISLAM ONE WAS

ATTACKED AT CLOSE RANGE.

A GUNMAN DISGUISED, WITH DENMARK

UNDER ATTACK BY TERRORISTS SINCE

POSTING A CARTOON IN 2005.

BRITISH PARLIAMENT HAS PASSED

A BILL LEGALIZING SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE.

IT WILL ENABLE SAME-SEX COUPLES

TO MARRY IN BOTH CIVIL AND

RELIGIOUS CEREMONIECEREMONIES.

DAVID CAMERON CALLS THE VOTE AN

IMPORTANT STEP FOR BRITAIN.

AND THE BILL WILL ALLOW COUPLES

IN PREVIOUS PARTNERSHIPS TO

CONVERT TO MARRIAGE.

THE ASIAN CHAPTER WILL ALLOW

THEM TO STAY ON CAMPUS.

LAST YEAR BEING REMOVED BECAUSE

OF THEIR FAITH CHAPTERS ON

RULERS.

THE UNIVERSITY HAS CREATED AN

EXCEPTION FOR RELIGIOUS STUDENT

ORGANIZATIONS LIKE INTERVARSITY.

GREG JAO SAYS THAT THEY HAVE

PROVIDED SIMILAR PROVISIONS TO

SIMILAR GROUPS.

I THINK THEY HAVE IN A COMMON

SENSE WAY BELIEVE THAT THIS IS

GOOD FOR THE UNIVERSITY.

THEY WANT RELIGIOUS GROUPS TO BE

THERE AND THAT THEY HAVE TO

RELIGIOUS LEADERS TO FLOURISH.

JAO BELIEVES MORE WILL TAKING

PLACE LINE IN MICHIGAN ACROSS

THE COUNTRY.

THERE IS CONVERTS OF

IMMIGRATION REFORM AFTER SO MANY

HISPANICS VOTED AGAINST THEM IN

THE ELECTIONS.

AND THE HOUSE SEEMED WARY BEFORE

MOVING TOO FAST TOO FAR.

AND STILL A BROKEN SYSTEM IS

CHASING AWAY THE PEOPLE THAT CAN

TURN AMERICA'S ECONOMY FROM BUST

TO BOOM.

IT RIPS FAMILIES ACROSS THE

SEAMS TO BE IN LIMBO.

AND INJURIES THAT WE ARE NOT

ABLE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE

BRAIN POWER.

NOW THE SKILL ISSUE IS

CRITICAL.

BECAUSE WE ARE BLEEDING.

WE NEED TALENT AND INNOVATION TO

HEAL THE ECONOMY.

THEY BELIEVE THAT IMMIGRATION

REFORM COULD ADD $130 MILLION TO

THE ECONOMY.

A TOWN IS CELEBRATING AN

ANSWER TO PRAYER.

A STAND-OFF CAME TO END MONDAY

IN MIDLAND CITY.

AND A HOSTAGE IS SAFE AND SOUND.

YOU CAN'T PHYSICALLY DO

ANYTHING, ALL WE CAN DO IS MEET

UP AND PRAY HERE.

ETHAN IS COMING OUT OF THAT

BUNKER.

THAT'S FAITH TALKING THERE.

ETHAN CELEBRATES HIS SIXTH

BIRTHDAY IN FREEDOM TOMORROW

AFTER HE WAS FREED FROM JIMMY

DYKES WHO DID NOT SURVIVE.

THE WHITE HOUSE IS CRITICAL

OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION NOT

PRODUCING A SPENDING PLAN ON

TIME.

THE WHITE HOUSE ISN'T SAYING

WHEN IT WILL RELEASE ITS BUDGET

FOR NEXT YEAR.

REPUBLICANS ARE VOTING ON A

BUDGET TOMORROW FOR A PLAN THAT

WILL BALANCE THE BUDGET

EVENTUALLY.

SAYING THAT WASHINGTON IS

SPENDING TOO MUCH.

THE U.S. JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

IS SUING THE STANDARDS & POORAS

RA

-- POORS SERVICE.

THEY ARE ACCUSING S & P OF

DEFRAUDING INACCURATE RATINGS.

S & P ARE DEFEND BE THEIR

RATINGS, SAYING THEY WERE ISSUED

IN GOOD FAITH.

COMING UP, WE WILL LOOK AT

HOW MUCH AMERICANS WASTE BY

SITTING IN TRAFFIC.

CBNNEWS.COM, NEWS YOU WANT

24/7.

STAY CURRENT WITH STORIES.

I DON'T HAVE TO WAIT FOR MY

NEWS ANYWHERE.

CBNNEWS.COM AT YOUR FINGER

TIPS ALL DAY LONG.

I ONLY WANT THE STORIES I

WANT TO SEE.

I FIND STORIES AND CLICK ON

IT, AND BOOM, AM THERE.

THE SOURCE FOR YOUR NEWS,

CBNNEWS.COM.

THE PRICE OF GASOLINE SHOT UP

IN JUST THE LAST WEEK.

UP 18 CENTS TO $3.54, THAT'S THE

BIGGEST WEEKLY INCREASE IN TWO

YEARS.

ANALYSTS SAY THAT THE STRONGER

ECONOMY IS ONE REASON THAT

PRICES ARE HIGHER.

THE PRICE OF OIL HAS BEEN

CLIMBING STEADILY IN RECENT

WEEKS, UP TO $100 A BARREL.

EXPERTS DON'T THINK THAT GAS

WILL HIT LAST-YEAR'S HIGHS.

WE SHALL SEE.

HOPE NOT.

IF YOU LIVE IN A MAJOR

METROPOLITAN AREA, YOU KNEW THAT

YOU SPEND TOO MUCH TIME IN

TRAFF

TRAFFIC.

NOW A STUDY CONFIRMS YOUR

FRUSTRATION.

Reporter: THIS IS WHAT YOU

SHOULD DO IN THE MORNING, BUT

FOR MOST THERE IS THEIR MORNING.

MORE THAN THE ACTUAL PERSON

SPENDS AT THEIR JOB.

AND IT'S TORTURE YOU HAVE TO

PAY FOR, A NEW STUDY SHOWS THAT

TRAFFIC CONGESTION COSTS $120

MILLION IN WASTED FUEL.

FOR THE AVERAGE AMERICAN THEY

SPEND THIS TIME IN THE TRAFFIC

JAM.

THE PLANNING TIME INDEX IS A

MATHEMATICAL WAY TO LOOK AT HOW

MUCH EXTRA TIME YOU NEED TO ADD

TO YOUR DRIVE TO ACCOUNT FOR

YOUR CITY'S MISERABLE TRAFFIC.

PEOPLE ARE BECOMING CAPTIVE

AUDIENCES IN THEIR CARS.

AND IT'S HARD TO PLAN AND

CALCULATE HOW THAT IMPACTS THEIR

DAILY LIVES.

THE WORSE TRAFFIC IN THE

NATION, WASHINGTON, D.C.

STUDY FOUND COMMUTERS NEED THREE

HOURS FOR A TRIP THAT SHOULD

TAKE 30 MINUTES.

OTHERS, IS SAN FRANCISCO, NEW

YORK, LOS ANGELES AND BOSTON.

E-MAILS AND TEXTS WHICH ARE

NOT SAFE.

LAST YEAR WAS NOT THE WORSE

YEAR FOR TRAFFIC, IT WAS 2005.

EXPERTS WARN THAT IF THE ECONOMY

PICKS UP, THE TRAFFIC WILL BE

WORSE.

UP NEXT WHY PEOPLE WITH HIGH

CHOLESTEROL TEND TO LIVE LONGER.

WELL, BABY BOOMERS ARE LIVING

LONGER THAN PREVIOUS GENERATIONS

BUT DOESN'T MEAN THEY ARE ANY

HEALTHY.

A NEW STUDY SHOWS THEY ARE MORE

LIKELY TO HAVE HIGH BLOOD

PRESSURE AND HIGHER CHOLESTEROL.

AND THEY ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE

OBESE.

ALL OF THIS CONCERN OVER HEALTH

CARE.

BUT GOOD NEWS, BABY BOOMERS ARE

LESS LIKELY TO SMOKE SO LESS

HEART ATTACKS.

A LITTLE GOOD NEWS.

CHOLESTEROL HAS BEEN NUMBER ONE

ENEMY FOR D DECADES.

AND NOW SHOWING THAT HIGH

CHOLESTEROL IS A GOOD FOR SOME.

20 YEARS AGO DOCTORS TOLD US

TO STAY AWAY FROM HIGH-FAT

FOODS.

LIKE BUTTER AND CHEESE AND BACON

AND EGGS.

BECAUSE THEY RAISED CHLORESTROL

AND COULD LEAD TO HEART DISEASE.

AMERICA LISTENED AND WE ATE

SUGAR AND OTHER CARBOHYDRATES.

HOW DID THAT WORK OUT?

NOT GREAT, AMERICANS GREW FATTER

THAN BEFORE.

IT LOOKED LIKE SCIENTISTS MAY

HAVE REACHED A WRONG CONCLUSION.

EXPERTS ARE SAYING THAT THESE

PROBLEMS ARE CAUSED NOT BY

CHOLESTEROL BUT INFLAMMATION.

THAT MEANS AVOIDING FOODS THAT

RAISE OUR CHOLESTEROL.

WE NEED TO AVOID FOODS THAT

CAUSE INFLAMMATION.

DR. TEETER SHOWED HOW DIFFERENT

FAT IN FOOD AFFECTED OUR HEALTH.

SHE SAID THAT SCIENTISTS WRONGLY

BLAMED CHOLESTEROL FOR HEART

DISEASE WHEN THEY FOUND HIGH

LEVELS OF IT IN DAMAGED VESSELS.

TEETER BELIEVES THAT THE BODY

PUT IT THERE TO FIX THE PROBLEM,

THAT IS CAUSED BY SOMETHING

ELSE.

INFLAMMATION.

IT'S THE INFLAMMATION THAT

STARTS THE LESION, AND THE BODY

SENDS THE CHOLESTEROL LIKE A

SCAB TO PROTEST THE BLOOD SYSTEM

AND THAT VESSEL WALL FROM

FURTHER DAMAGE.

AND SHOWING THAT CHOLESTEROL

CAN PROTECT INTESTINAL PROBLEMS

AND HELPS CREATE VITAMIN D, AND

PEOPLE WITH HIGH CHOLESTEROL

TEND TO LIVE LONGER.

I COME FROM A FAMILY THAT MY

MOTHER'S SIDE HAD HIGH

CHOLESTEROL.

HERS WAS 20 AND DIED AT 97.

SO I DON'T THINK THAT

CHOLESTEROL IS TOO BAD FOR HER.

AND IT'S IMPORTANT IN THE

BRAIN THAT NEEDS MORE

CHOLESTEROL AND NEEDS

CHOLESTEROL IN ORDER FOR BRAIN

CELLS TO PASS MESSAGES TO EACH

OTHER.

WHEN IT COMES TO FOOD CHOICES,

DR. TEETER SAYS DON'T WORRY IF

IT RAISES YOUR CHOLESTEROL.

FOCUS ON OMEGA 3'S AND NATURAL

SATURATED FATS.

SOME FOODS CAUSE INFLAMMATION SO

AVOID OMEGA 6'S FROM THE

UNHEALTHY FATS.

HOW DO YOU TELL THE DIFFERENCE?

VEGETABLE OILS AND MAYONNAISE

CONTAIN HIGH AMOUNTS OF OMEGA

6'S.

SO BE CAREFUL HOW MUCH YOU

CONSUME.

AS FAR AS OMEGA 3'S, WITH FISH

AND NUTS TAKE EXTRA DOSES.

WE KNOW THAT BETTUTTER IS A BETTER

CHOICE THAN MARGARINE.

YOU CAN TELL IF SOMETHING

CONTAINS TRANSFAT IF YOU SEE

HYDROGENIZED IN THE INGREDIENTS.

NATURAL FATS CAN HELP, COCONUT

OIL CAN HELP IN REVERSAL OF ALS

AND PARKINSON'S DISEASE IN SOME

PEOPLE.

NOW THAT YOU KNOW THE GOODS

ABOUT FATS, YOU SHOULD KNOW

ABOUT THE FOODS THAT MAKE YOU

FAT AND INCREASE INFLAMMATION.

ON THAT LIST IT'S HARD TO TOP

SUGAR AND OTHER REFINED CAR BO

CARBOHYDRATES.

SAY NO TO SUGAR AND OTHER CARBS

AND TRANSFATS.

UP NEXT, WHY VALENTINE'S DAY

WON'T BE SO GLUM FOR AMERICAN

TROOPS IN AFGHANISTAN.

VALENTINE'S DAY IS JUST A

LITTLE OVER A WEEK AWAY, MARK.

I NEED TO HURRY AND GET MY

WIFE SOMETHING.

A SPECIAL GROUP FROM NEVADA IS

MAKING THEIR MISSION TO SEND

LOVE TO THE TROOPS OVERSEAS.

THEY ARE SPENDING TIME STUFFING

BOXES AND CANDIES AND HOME-MADE

CARDS.

WHEN SAID AND DONE, THEY SENT

2,000 CARDS TO THE SOLDIERS IN

AFGHAN.

PART OF THE GREEN FOUNDATION.

KILLED WHILE SERVING IN

AFGHANISTAN

AFGHANISTAN.

WE WANT THEM TO KNOW THAT WE

SUPPORT THE TROOPS.

THE KIDS LOVE TO DO THINGS LIKE

THIS FOR THE TROOPS.

AND TO SHOW THEM WE ARE THINKING

ABOUT THEM ALWAYS FROM HOME.

THAT'S WONDERFUL.

THE FOUNDATION WAS STARTED IN

GREEN'S HONOR, ALL A PART TO

GIVE BACK TO THE TROOPS.

AND THAT IS SOMETHING THEY WILL

N

NEVER FORGET.

YEAH, DINNER AND ROSES.

CANDY?
