TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH," MUCH

OF THE NORTHEAST UNDER A

BLIZZARD WARNING.

HOW FOLKS ARE FACING THEIR

BIGGEST SNOWSTORM IN YEARS.

PLUS HOW THEIR POSITION IN

GAY MARRIAGE LED TO A SHOOTING

AL A CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN

LOBBYING GROUP.

WHICH HISTORICALLY CHRISTIAN

COUNTRY IS SEEING A RISE IN

MEGAMOSQUES BEING BUILT?

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." GOOD EVENING I AM

MARK MARTIN.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

IT IS PROBABLY A SIGHT TO SEE.

YOU DON'T WANT TO GO DRIVING IN

MASSACHUSETTS TO LOOK AT THE

HISTORIC BLIZZARD HITTING THE

NORTHEAST RIGHT NOW.

THE STORM IS SUPPOSED TO BE

SO DANGEROUS, GOVERNOR BANNED

ALL BUT ESSENTIAL TRAFFIC FROM

THE ROADS.

PAUL STRAND REPORTS ON THE

BLIZZARD STILL REELING FROM

SUPERSTORM SANDY.

REPORTER: LAST YEAR IT WAS

SUPERSTORM SANDY NOW THIS YEAR

IT IS THE BLIZZARD.

THIS COULD BE AMONG THE TOP 10

SNOWSTORMS TO BLAST THE

NORTHEAST.

UNAUTHORIZED DRIVING COULD GET

YOU TOSSED IN JAIL FOR UP TO A

YEAR OR FINED UP TO $500.

I HAVE SIGN AN EXECUTIVE ORDER

BANNING DRIVING AFTER 4:00.

THE WORST OF THE STORM HITS

DURING THE HIDE OF THE TIDES, IT

COULD CAUSE A NEW ROUND OF

COASTAL FLOODS.

LAST ONE RUINED US TOTALLY.

PRETTY DANGEROUS STORM.

WE ARE CONCERNED ALONG THE COAST

OF HIGH TIDE SURGING.

SATURDAY MORNING IS GOING TO BE

A TOUGH SURGE.

OTHERS ARE HIGH TAILING IT

OUT.

WE DON'T WANT TO LOSE POWER.

YOU CAN'T SLEEP.

TRYING TO GET EARLY FLIGHTS

OUT SINCE OUR FLIGHTS HAVE BEEN

CANCELLED.

AIRLINES NOT WANTING TO GET

PEOPLE STRANDED HAVE CANCELLED

3700 FLIGHTS.

IT IS INCUMBENT TO CALL YOUR

CARRIER TO FIND OUT THE STATUS

OF YOUR SPECIFIC FLIGHT BEFORE

YOU COME TO THE AIRPORT.

EVEN IF THE JETS WERE BRAVE

THE HIGH WINDS, MANY OF THE

TRANSIT SYSTEMS WILL BE DOWN ANY

WAY, PAUL STRAND.

CBN NEWS.

FOR MORE ON THE STORM

CONDITIONS, WE TERM TO

ACCUWEATHER ADRIAN GREEN.

HISTORIC STORM IS UNFOLDING

ACROSS PARTS OF THE NORTHEAST.

WE HAVE TWO STORMS ACROSS THE

NORTHEAST COMING TOGETHER AS WE

HEAD THROUGH TONIGHT.

ONCE THE TWO STORMS COME

TOGETHER, ACROSS NEW ENGLAND,

TRAVEL SHUTTING DOWN, POWER OUT

OUTAGES GOING TO BE WIDESPREAD.

IT IS GOING TO BE A NIGHTMARE.

TRAVEL IS NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL

ACROSS THE NORTHEAST.

WE ARE TALKING TO ONE TO TWO

FEET OF SNOW ACROSS HARTFORD.

THERE WILL BE A SWEET SPOT TO

PICK UP OVER TWO FEET OF SNOW.

A LOT OF SNOW COMING IN A SHORT

AMOUNT OF TIME AND WINDS 60-70

MILES PER HOUR AT TIMES, WE ARE

GOING TO SEE BLOWING AND

DRIFTING SNOW, WHITE OUT

CONDITIONS AND VISIBILITY

DROPPING OFF TO NEARLY 0.

WINDS GOING TO BE A CONCERN

ALONG THE COAST.

COASTAL FLOOD THREAT AND TIDES

ARE THE ONE HERE TONIGHT AND AS

WE HEAD THROUGH TOMORROW

MORNING, A TIDE CONCERN FOR YA

RIGHT ALONG THE COAST.

THROUGH THE DAY TOMORROW, THINGS

BEGIN TO WIND DOWN.

WE'LL HAVE BLIZZARD CONDITIONS

TO CONTEND WITH PARTS OF NEW

ENGLAND TOMORROW MORNING.

THE SNOW MAY STOP BUT THE WINDS

WILL CONTINUE TO BRING SNOW

AKROZ CROSS THE AREA.

WOW, THAT IS A MESSY ONE.

ROMAN CATHOLIC BISHOPS ARE NOT

HAPPY, THEY WANT THE GOVERNMENT

TO MAKE IT CLEAR FAITH

AFFILIATED HOSPITALS AND OTHER

NON-PROFITS ARE RELIGIOUS

MINISTRIES.

THE REVISED PLAN FALLS SHORT

BECAUSE IT DOESN'T PROVIDE

EXEMPTIONS FROM BUSINESS OWNERS.

JOINING US IS FATHER FRANK

BAVONE NATIONAL DIRECTOR OF

PRIESTS FOR LIFE.

FATHER, FRANK, IS THERE ANY ROOM

FOR COMPROMISE AND THE

GOVERNMENT ON THIS ISSUE?

NO, THERE ISN'T.

WHAT I SAID AFTER THE LATEST

PROPOSE RULE CHANGE IS THAT THE

ONLY ACCEPTABLE RESPONSE AS FAR

AS WE ARE CONCERNED IS A

COMPLETE RESENDING OF THE HHS

MANDATE.

NO MATTER WHAT WAY THE

ADMINISTRATION WANTS TO SLICE OR

SPIN IT.

THE FACT IS THEY ARE STILL

FORCING US TO COOPERATE IN EVIL.

WE BECOME THE GATEWAY THAT ARE

AGAINST GOD'S LAW.

NO TWO WAYS ABOUT IT.

NO WAY TO FINESS IT AND FIND NEW

SYSTEM OF COVERAGE OR PAYMENT.

WE WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH

PROMOTING THESE ACTIVITIES.

THEREFORE THE MANDATE NEEDS TO

BE RESENDING.

DOZENS OF LAWSUITS HAVE BEEN

FILED LIKE HOBBY LOBBY WHO SAY

THE MANDATE IS AT ODDS WITH

THEIR RELIGIOUS CONVICTIONS?

WE AS A RELIGIOUS

ORGANIZATION WERE ONE OF THE

FIRST TO FILE SUCH A LAWSUIT AS

WELL.

EVEN THOUGH THESE PROPOSED

REVISIONS ADDRESS WHAT IS OR IS

NOT A RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATION

BELIEVE IT OR NOT, STILL UNDER

THESE NEW PROPOSALS, PRIESTS FOR

LIFE DOESN'T QUALIFY AS

RELIGIOUS ENOUGH TO COUNT FOR AN

EXEMPTION, WORSE AS YOU ARE

POINTING OUT ARE THOSE

BUSINESSES, THOSE EMPLOYERS, WHO

DO NOT PRESENT THEIR

ORGANIZATIONS OR BUSINESSES AS

RELIGIOUS ENTITIES,

ADMINISTRATION APPARENTLY

DOESN'T RECOGNIZE FREEDOM OF

CONSCIENCE BELONGS TO THE PEOPLE

AND GROUPS THAT ARE NOT CHURCHES

OR RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS.

IT IS COMPLETELY ABSENT FROM

THEIR RADAR SCREEN.

WE JOINED WITH ALL AMERICANS TO

SAY THAT EVERYONE, WHETHER THEY

RUN A RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATION OR

NOT HAS THE FREEDOM OF

CONSCIENCE TO CONDUCT THEIR

ACTIVITIES IN THE WAY THEY

BELIEVE GOD WANTS THEM TO DO.

JUST A FEW REMAINING SECONDS,

WHAT IS THE NEXT STEP FOR THE

CATHOLIC CHURCH AND OTHER

RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS IN THIS

BATTLE?

WE NEED TO CONTINUE TO PRESS

FORWARD WITH THE LAWSUITS AND

EDUCATE OUR FELLOW AMERICANS

THAT WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER

AND WE HAVE TO OBEY GOD RATHER

THAN MEN. FATHER, I

APPRECIATE YOUR PASSION AND YOU

ARE WITH PRIESTS FOR LIFE, THANK

YOU FOR BEING WITH US.

YOU ARE WELCOME.

A PORTRAIT OF JESUS AT A OHIO

SCHOOL IS THE CENTER OF A

LAWSUIT.

THE PORTRAIT, THEY SAY VIOLATES

CONSTITUTION AND SHOULD BE

REMOVED FROM JACKSON SCHOOL.

THE SCHOOL BOARD WILL DISCUSS

APPROPRIATE COURSE OF ACTION AT

FEBRUARY 12TH MEETING.

IT WAS DONATED BY A STUDENT

GROUP AND BEEN IN THE SCHOOL

SINCE 1947.

A GUNMAN THAT WANTED TO KILL

AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE AS A

CHRISTIAN ORGANIZATION ALL

BECAUSE THEY OPPOSED SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE.

FLOYD CORKINS PLED GUILTY TO THE

CHARGES TIED TO HIS ATTACK ON

THE FAMILY RESEARCH COUNCIL LAST

AUGUST.

HE REVEALED DISTURBING DETAILS

ABOUT WHY HE DID IT.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THAT STORY.

REPORTER: IN HIS FEDERAL

COURT APPEARANCE WEDNESDAY FLOYD

CORKINS PLED GUILTY TO THREE

CHARGES.

INTERL STATE TRANSPORTATION OF A

FIREARM AND AMMUNITION.

ASSAULT WITH INTENT TO KILL

WHILE ARMED AND ACT OF TERRORISM

WITH INTENT TO HARM THEN HE WAS

GOING TO SMEAR CHICK-FIL-A

SANDWICHES IN THE FACES OF HIS

VICTIMS.

CORKINS TARGETED THE FAMILY

RESEARCH COUNCIL AND LABELED

THEM AS HATE GROUPS.

IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE SHOOTING

IN AUGUST, FRC PRESIDENT TONY

PERKINS SAID THE SPLC SHARES

SOME OF THE BLAME.

CORKINS WAS GIVEN A LICENSE

TO SHOOT AN UNARMED MAN BY

ORGANIZATIONS LIKE THE SOUTHERN

POVERTY LAW CENTER BECAUSE THEY

DISAGREE WITH THEM ON PUBLIC

POLICY.

THE SPLC HAS LISTED FRC AS A

HATE GROUP SINCE 2010 BECAUSE IT

HAS SPREAD FALSE ABOUT LGBT

PEOPLE.

NOT BECAUSE IT OPPOSES SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE MARRIAGE.

CORKINS USED THE SPLC WEBSITE,

THEY CAN NO LONGER SAY IT IS NOT

A SOURCE FOR THOSE BENT ON

COMMITTING ACTS OF VIOLENCE.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

CORKINS FACES UP TO 30 YEARS

IN PRISON ON EACH OF THE TWO

LOCAL CHARGES AND UP TO 10 YEARS

ON THE FEDERAL CHARGE SENTENCING

SCHEDULED FOR APRIL 29TH.

RETIRED GENERAL JERRY BOYKIN

IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE FRC.

HE SPOKE WITH LEE WEBB.

LEE: THIS MAN IS GOING TO

SERVE A LONG PRISON TERM FOR

WHAT HE HAS DONE.

IS IT SOBERING TO THINK ABOUT

HOW FAR OUR CULTURE HAS

DIGRESSED?

YES, LEE, IT DOES.

WE AT THE FAMILY RESEARCH

COUNCIL ARE PRAYING FOR FLOYD

CORKINS.

IT SHOULD BE A QUESTION FOR

CHRISTIANS WITH 70 ROUNDS OF

AMMUNITION, NO TELLING HOW MANY

PEOPLE COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED IF

WE HADN'T STOPPED HIM.

LEE: THE SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW

CENTER IS SHOWING NO MEANS OF

REMOVING FRC ON THEIR HATE LIST.

QUITE THE CONTRARY.

THEY SAY THEY HAVE TO NOTIFY THE

PUBLIC.

THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS.

WHO ARE THEY EXCEPT A PRIVATE

ORGANIZATION THAT HAS TAKEN UPON

THEMSELVES AS SELF-APPOINTED

WATCHDOGS TO LABEL ORGANIZATIONS

AND INDIVIDUALS AS HATE GROUPS

OR HATE MONGERS.

LEE: YOU ARE ONE OF THE

NATION'S MOST DECORATED

VETERANS.

WHEN YOU RETIRED, DID YOU EXPECT

YOU MIGHT MEET THIS VIOLENCE BY

SITTING IN AN OFFICE BUILDING IN

WASHINGTON, D.C.?

WHEN I RETIRED, I INTENDED TO

GO FISHING.

THAT LASTED A WEEK AND MY WIFE

TOLD ME THAT WAS NOT ACCEPTABLE.

NO, I DIDN'T THINK I WOULD

CONTINUE TO GET SHOT AT.

LEE, I WOULDN'T HAVE ANY OTHER

WAY.

THE REASON IS I AM CONCERNED

ABOUT THE DIRECTION OF THIS

NATION.

SOBERING WORDS THERE.

COMING UP, HOW THE GUN CONTROL

DEBATE IS IMPACTING LAW

ENFORCEMENT.

LAWMAKERS IN CALIFORNIA

PUSHING FOR THE TOUGHEST GUN

LAWS IN THE NATION.

DEMOCRATS UNVEILED 10 MEASURES

AIMED AT CURVING GUN VIOLENCE,

INCLUDING BANNING AUTOMATIC

WEAPONS WITH DETACHABLE

MAGAZINES.

MEASURES WOULD BAN POSSESSION OF

MAGAZINES HOLDING MORE THAN 10

BULLETS EVEN BY THOSE THAT OWN

THEM LEGALLY.

AS THE DEBATE OTHER GUN CONTROL

CONTINUES, INCREASED HIKES ON

GUNS IS LEADING TO A SHORTAGE.

ANDREA GARRETT HAS MORE

REPORTER: LOCAL POLICE

DEPARTMENTS ARE FINDING A HARD

TIME FINDING BULLETS TO FILL

THEIR GUNS AND COULD AFFECT THE

WAY THEY DO THEIR GUNS.

WE WERE ISSUED A BOX A MONTH

SO WE COULD PRACTICE.

WE NO LONGER GET THAT. 40

CALIBER BULLETS, A 50-ROUND BOX

COST $30, IN THE WAKE OF THE

NEWTOWN, CONNECTICUT SHOOTING,

DEMAND IS UP, SUPPLIERS ARE

RAISING PRICES. THE FEAR

OF WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN WITH

THE GOVERNMENT COMES INTO PLAY

AND PEOPLE REACT.

SOME AGENCIES ARE PLACING

ORDERS FOR AM KNOW AND FORCED TO

WAIT MONTHS FOR IT TO ARRIVE.

AS LONG AS THE GUN CONTROL

IS DOMINATING OUR COUNTRY, IT IS

GOING TO GET WORSE.

ROUNDS WILL BE FEWER.

ANDREA GARRETT, CBN NEWS.

SEATTLE SCRAPS FOR USING

DRONES AS A TROOL.

SEATTLE HAD BEEN GIVEN TWO

DRONES THROUGH A FEDERAL GRANT.

POLICE WERE GOING TO USE THEM TO

VIEW CRIME SCENES AND AID IN

SEARCH AND RESCUE OPERATIONS.

SEATTLE IS NOT THE ONLY PLACE

BLOCKING DRONES.

LAWMAKERS IN 11 STATES ARE

LOOKING AT PLANS TO RESTRICT

THEM. UP NEXT, HOW TURKEY

IS PLAYING A ROLE IN THE RISE OF

MUSLIMS IN GERMANY.

GERMANY HAS HISTORICALLY BEEN

A CHRISTIAN COUNTRY.

LAND OF MARTIN LUTHER AND

REFORMATION.

GOVERNMENT OF TURKEY IS MAKING

INROADS FOR ISLAM IN THAT

COUNTRY.

IT IS BUILDING MOSQUES

INCLUDING A NEW TURKISH

MEGAMOSQUE, ERICK STAKELBECK

EXPLAINS IN TONIGHT'S FOCUS

REPORT.

REPORTER: IT IS SO BIG IT

STOPS PASSERS BY IN THEIR

TRACKS.

IT CAN BE SEEN FROM BLOCKS AWAY.

THIS IS THE CALONE CENTRAL

MOSQUE.

IT WILL BE GERMANY'S LARGEST

HOUSE OF WORSHIP.

40 MILLION DOLLAR FACILITY WILL

INCLUDE A RESTAURANT, PRAYER

ROOM, LIBRARY AND MORE.

THIS IS A MASSIVE STRUCTURE

TAKES UP AN ENTIRE CITY BLOCK

AND WILL BE THE LARGEST MOSQUE

IN ALL OF EUROPE.

GERMANY IS HOME TO 4.3

MUSLIMS, 125,000 WHO LIVE IN

CALONE.

LARGE MAJORITY ARE TURKISH.

ONE GERMAN MUSLIM ACTIVIST TOLD

CBN NEWS, THE NEW FACILITY IS

NEEDED.

FOR YEARS, VERY, VERY UGLY

PLACES.

THE MOST AND POOREST PARTS OF

CALONE UNDERGROUND AND ELSEWHERE

WHERE YOU HAD PRAYER PLACES.

NOW TO HAVE SOMETHING VISIBLE,

QUITE IN THE MIX OF THE SOCIETY

IS SOMETHING THAT IS IN DEEP AND

GREAT NEED FOR THE CITY ITSELF,

FOR THE MUSLIMS AND THE SOCIETY

REPORTER: THIS MAN SUPPORTS

MOSQUE PROJECTS THROUGHOUT

EUROPE.

HE DENIES THE CHARGE OF BEING

CONNECTED WITH THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD.

IF YOU COMPARE IT BY

PERCENTAGE OF MUSLIMS AND

COMPARE CHURCHES TO CHRISTIANS,

YOU SHOULD NOT 3,000 PRAYER

PLACES BUT 15,000.

REPORTER: THIS MOON IS AN

ANTIJIHAD ACTIVIST.

HE SAYS THE NEW MOSQUE IS A

POLITICAL STATEMENT TO SHOW

DOMINANCE.

IT IS HOME TO FAMED HIGH

CATHEDRAL OF ST. PETER AND

CATHOLICISM.

IT IS THE LARGEST CHRISTIAN

BUILDING NORTH OF THE ALPS AND

ALSO CENTER IN CALONE.

PURPOSE IS TO CHALLENGE THE

CHRISTIAN.

LOCALS ARE SEEING A SIMILAR

TREND.

POPULATION 10% TURKISH-MUSLIM.

THERE ARE A LOT OF SMALL

MOSQUES CALLED BACKYARD MOSQUES.

ONE BIG MOSQUE.

ANOTHER ONE IS BEING BUILT

REPORTER: THIS WOMAN IS A

MEMBER OF HERITAGE CITY COUNCIL.

CARS DECORATED WITH TURKISH

FLAGS.

TOWNS CHRISTIAN LEADERS SILENT

IN THE FACE OF ISLAM'S GROWTH.

[ FOREIGN SPEAKING ] THERE ARE

CHRISTIA

CHRISTIAN-DIAGNOSE MEETINGS.

I WAS ASKED NOT TO OPEN MY

MOUTH.

I WILL NOT TAKE THE ISLAMIZATION

LAYING DOWN.

REPORTER: MEDIA AND LEFT ARE

LABELED AS NAZI.

YOU ARE A RIGHT RADICAL OR

NAZI OR YOU ARE A FOREIGN HATER.

CLAUDE HEADS THE HOUSE NORTH

OF CALONE.

TURKS IN GERMANY REGARD --

NOT THE CHANCELLOR OF TURKEY AS

THEIR LEADER.

REPORTER: IN 2008, AN

AUDIENCE OF TURKS, IT WOULD BE A

CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY.

THE GOVERNMENT IS DIRECTLY

INVOLVED IN THE BILLING AND

SUPERVISOR VISION OF MOSQUES

ACROSS GERMANY THROUGH A

CULTURAL ORGANIZATION CALLED

DPEV.

IT ACTS AN AS ARM AND OPERATES

WITH FULL GERMAN PERMISSION.

I SHOULD BE LOOKED AT NOT AS

A THREAT.

REPORTER: THE REGIME HAS

DRAWN CLOSER TO ISLAMIC

NEIGHBORS AND FIERCELY

ANTI-ISREAL.

THAT HAS SOME WONDERING WHETHER

THE NEW MEGAMOSQUE WILL BE THE

BEACON OF TOLERANCE IZAYA WOULD

SUGGEST.

CBN NEWS, GERMANY.

SEE WHAT POPULAR SONG HAS ONE

BABY WAKING UP TO DANCE.
