IS THE PRESIDENT

JEOPARDIZING THE

INTERNATIONAL STANDING OF

THE UNITED STATES?

OR HAS HE JUST THROWN THE

BALL TO CONGRESS AND NOW

GOING TO BLAME THEM IF

SOMETHING GOES WRONG?

PRESIDENT OBAMA WANTS

CAPITOL HILL NOW TO GIVE

IT'S APPROVAL BEFORE THE

UNITED STATES LAUNCHES A

STRIKE ON SYRIA.

Terry: SOME IN CONGRESS

SAY THAT SYRIA MUST BE

PUNISHED FOR USING CHEMICAL

WEAPONS, BUT NOT EVERYONE IS

CONVINCED THAT THE UNITED

STATES MUST ACT.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: THE PRESIDENT

HAS A BIG JOB TO DO BEFORE

HEADING OUT OF TOWN FOR THE

G-20 SUMMIT IN RUSSIA,

CONVINCING CONGRESS TO TAKE

MILITARY ACTION AGAINST

SYRIA.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS

IN FULL LOBBY MODE TODAY.

MEMBERS OF CONGRESS ARE

RECEIVING A CLASSIFIED

BRIEFING, AND THEY'RE

HOLDING THE FIRST PUBLIC

HEARING ON AUTHORIZING THE

USE OF FORCE IN SYRIA.

TWO REPUBLICAN LAWMAKERS ARE

VOICING TENTATIVE SUPPORT

FOR OBAMA'S PLAN.

I THINK WE HAVE FOUND

SOME AREAS WE CAN WORK

TOGETHER, BUT WE HAVE A LONG

WAY TO GO.

SENATOR McCAIN SAID IT

WOULD BE CATASTROPHIC FOR

CONGRESS TO REJECT THE

PRESIDENT'S QUEST.

SENATOR LINDSAY GRAHAM IS

ALSO ON BOARD.

BUT HE SAYS THE PRESIDENT'S

PLAN DOESN'T GO FAR ENOUGH,

AND HE JOINS McCAIN IN

CALLING FOR MORE THAN JUST

ISOLATED STRIKES.

OTHER LAWMAKERS REMAIN

SKEPTICAL.

I DON'T SEE WHERE THE

ASSAD REGIME HAS POSED A

DIRECT THREAT TO AMERICA OR

ITS ALLIES.

WHAT IS MISSING IS A PLAN

OF ACTION OF WHAT WOULD

HAPPEN IN THE EVENT THE

UNITED STATES DID USE SOME

TYPE OF FORCE AGAIN SYRIA.

THE PRESIDENT WILL

CONTINUE TO SEEK

AUTHORIZATION, BUT BOTH HE

AND JOHN KERRY SAY HE HAS

THE POWER TO ACT, EVEN IF A

VOTING CONGRESS FAILS.

MEANWHILE, OBAMA IS GAINING

SOME INTERNATIONAL REPORT.

FRANCE RELEASED A NINE-PAGE

INTELLIGENCE REPORT

OUTLINING ITS CASE AGAINST

THE SYRIA GOVERNMENT.

THEY SAID, QUOTE," A

MASSIVE USE OF CHEMICAL

WEAPONS."

THE FRENCH PRIME MINISTER

SAYS SYRIA'S ACTION CANNOT

GO WITHOUT A RESPONSE.

FOR NOW, SYRIA IS ALREADY A

MASSIVE HUMANITARIAN

CRISIS.

THE UNITED STATES REFUGEE

AGENCY SAYS MORE THAN TWO

MILLION REFUGEES HAVE FLED

FROM THE VIOLENCE.

THE COUNTRY IS LOSING ALMOST

5,000 CITIZENS A DAY.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: TINDER BOX, NO END

IN SIGHT.

FOLKS, WE'RE NEVER GOING TO

HAVE AN END UNTIL WE

RECOGNIZE WHAT IS

HAPPENING.

THE RADICAL ISLAMIC PEOPLE

WANT WAR.

THEY WANT STRIFE.

THEY WANT CHAOS.

THEY WANT TO TAKE OVER.

AND THEY WANT TO FOMAT

SERIOUS SITUATIONS.

IRAN WANTS TO DESTROY

ISRAEL, AND THE HEZBOLLAH IS

ONE OF THEIR ENEMIES UP IN

LEBANON, AND ON IT GOES.

BUT AT THE HEART OF IT IS A

RADICAL GROUP INTO INSISTS

ON REMAKING THE WORLD AFTER

THE IMAGE OF THE PROPHET

MOHAMMED.

WELL, ISRAEL MAY BE GETTING

READY IN CASE THEY'RE ATTACK

IN A WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST,

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

ISRAEL CARRIED OUT A JOINT

MISSILE TEST IN THE UNITED

STATES IN THE MEDITERRANEAN

SEA.

THE ISRAELI DEFENSE SAYS IT

IS MEANT TO TEST RADAR

SYSTEMS.

BOTH SYRIA AND IRAN HAVE

THREATENED RETALIATION

AGAINST ISRAEL IF THERE IS

SUCH A STRIKE AGAINST

SYRIA.

ISRAEL SAYS IT IS PREPARED

FOR ANY ATTACK.

IN GERMANY, AUTHORITIES HAVE

ONCE AGAIN ABDUCTED THE

CHILDREN OF A HOME SCOORLG

HOME-SCHOOLING FAMILY.

DALE HERD HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: A TEAM OF

GERMAN POLICE OFFICERS WITH

A BATTERING RAM STORMED THE

RESIDENCE TESTIFY THIS

FAMILY, SHOWN HERE AT A

HOME-SCHOOLING CONFERENCE.

THE RAID TOOK ALL FOUR OF

THE FAMILY'S CHILDREN INTO

STATE CUSTODY.

THE ONLY LEGAL GROUNDS WERE

THAT THE PARENTS CONTINUED

TO HOME-SCHOOL THEIR

CHILDREN.

THERE WERE NO ALLEGATIONS OF

ABUSE OR NEGLECT.

THE GERMAN FAMILY COURT

JUDGE ALSO AUTHORIZED THE

POLICE TO USE FORCE AGAINST

THE CHILDREN IF THEY

RESISTED.

BEHIND THE RAID WAS THE

NOTORIOUS YOUTH OFFICE.

MANY OF THE JOURNEY PARENTS

WHO HAVE RUN AFOUL OF THE

YOUTH OFFICE HAVE HAD THEIR

LIVES RUINED.

THEY HAVE BEEN TAKEN IN IN

OUT OF COURT AND FINED

THOUSANDS OF EUROS, AND SOME

HAVE LOST THEIR CHILDREN.

A FEW YEARS AGO, THIS FAMILY

FLED GERMANY TO AVOID HAVING

THEIR CHILDREN TAKEN, BUT

THE NEED FOR EMPLOYMENT

FORCED THEM TO RETURN.

THE FATHER SAID HE WAS

PREPARED TO GO TO JAIL

RATHER THAN SEND HIS

CHILDREN TO SCHOOL.

I AM NOT AFRAID OF THIS.

IT IS ONLY SAD FOR MY

FAMILY.

BUT I GO LAUGHING.

YOU CAN DO WHAT YOU WANT.

MY CHILDREN DON'T GO TO

SCHOOL.

Reporter: THE FOUNDER

OF THE HOME-SCHOOL LEGAL

DEFENSE ASSOCIATION, MICHAEL

FERRIS, CALLED THE ABDUCTION

OF THESE CHILDREN AN

OUTRAGEOUS ACT OF A ROGUE

NATION, AND IT DEMONSTRATES

WHY THE ASYLUM CAME TO

ANOTHER GERMAN HOME-SCHOOLED

FAMILY, THE ROWIKA WAS SO

IMPORTANT.

THEY WERE GRANTED ASYLUM BY

A JUDGE, BUT THE OWES

ADMINISTRATION WANTS THEM

TURNED BACK TO GERMANY.

WHEN THE FAMILY TRIED TO

GIVE HER DAUGHTER A KISS AND

HUG GOOD-BYE, ONE OF THE

OFFICERS PUSHED THE MOTHER

AWAY AND SAID IT WAS TOO

LATE FOR THAT.

THE OFFICIALS TOLD THEIR

PARENTS THEY WOULD NOT BE

SEEING THEIR CHILDREN ANY

TIME SOON.

DALE HERD, CBN NEWS.

AN OREGON BAKERY THAT

REFUSED TO MAKE A CAKE FOR A

GAY WEDDING HAS CLOSED ITS

SHOP.

THE OWNERS ANNOUNCED ON

Facebook THEY WOULD BE

MOVING THEIR BUSINESS TO AN

IN-HOME BAKERY.

THOSE WHO VISITED THE SHOP

ON SUNDAY FOUND ONLY EMPTY

COUNTERS AND DISPLAYS, AND

ON THE WINDOW, A SIGN FROM

THE OREGON FAMILY COUNCIL

THAT READ, "RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM IS UNDER ATTACK."

THEY GAINED BOTH SUPPORT

FROM PROPONENTS OF

TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE AND

PROTESTORS OF SUPPORTERS OF

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE.

ONE-THIRD OF AMERICAN

WORKERS SAY THEY HAVE SEEN

OR EXPERIENCED RELIGIOUS

DISCRIMINATION IN THE

WORKPLACE.

THAT'S ACCORDING TO A NEW

STUDY BY THE TANNENBAUM

CENTER FOR RELIGIOUS

UNDERSTANDING.

THE CENTER ASKED 2,000

AMERICANS ABOUT RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM AT WORK.

32% OF ANGELICAL SAID PEOPLE

LOOKED DOWN ON THEM, AND IN

ADDITION, MORE THAN HALF OF

THOSE SURVEYS AGREED MUSLIMS

SUFFERED A LOT OF

DISCRIMINATION.

AND SIX OUT OF TEN BELIEVE

DISCRIMINATION AGAINST

CHRISTIANS IS AS COMMON AS

DISCRIMINATION AGAINST OTHER

FAITHS.

A REPORT WAS BASED ON

INFORMATION FROM NATIONAL

SECURITY LEAKER E EDWARD

SNOWDEN.

BRAZIL CALLED THE U.S. SPY

PROGRAM AN UNACCEPTABLE

INVASION OF SOVEREIGNTY, AND

EXPECTS A PROMPT EXPLANATION

FROM THE WHITE HOUSE.

AND THEY'RE CALLING FOR

INTERNATIONAL REGULATIONS TO

PROTECT CITIZENS AND

GOVERNMENTS ALIKE FROM

CYBERESPIONAGE.

LIFE EXPECTANCIES FOR WOMEN

LIVING TO AGE 50 IS GOING ON

AROUND THE WORLD.

BUT THE GAP IN LIFE SPANS

BETWEEN DEVELOPED AND

UNDEVELOPED COUNTRIES IS

WIDENING.

THE GAP COULD BE CUT DOWN.

THE AUTHOR OF THE REPORT

SAYS HEART DISEASE, STROKE,

AND CANCER ARE THE LEADING

CAUSES OF DEATH FOR WOMEN

OVER 50.

IT COULD BE CUT DOWN BY

CUTTING BACK ON OVEREATING,

SMOKING, AND ALONG WITH

BETTERBETTER TREATMENT FOR

CANCER, PAT.

THAT SOUNDS LIKE GOOD NEWS.

Pat: WE'VE BEEN SINGING

THAT SONG FOR SOME TIME,

DON'T SMOKE, DON'T OVER EAT,

KEEP A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE,

EXERCISE, AND HAVE A

POSITIVE MENTAL ATTITUDE.

ALL OF THAT AND YOU LIVE

LONGER.

THE BIBLE SAYS, A MERRY

HEART DOETH GOOD LIKE

MEDICINE, SO KEEP ON

LAUGHING.
