THANKS FOR JOINING US FOR

CBN NEWS TODAY, I'M CHARLENE

ISRAEL.

Ephraim: AND I'M EF

EPHRAIM GRAHAM.

THE WHITE HOUSE SAYS IT

WELCOMES A SUPREME COURT

DECISION THAT CHALLENGES THE

CASE OF PART OF THE

PRESIDENT'S' HEALTH CARE

LAW.

TWO COMPANIES SAY THE LAW

VIOLATES RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

BY FORCING THEM TO COVER

CONTRACEPTION IN THE

EMPLOYEE HEALTH CARE

BENEFITS.

HEATHER CELLS HAS THE

LATEST.

Reporter: HOBBY LOBBY

FOUNDER, DAVID GREEN, OWNERS

THE OKLAHOMA-BASED CHRISTIAN

ARTS AND CRAFTS SHOP.

SHARING THE GOSPEL IS THE

DRIVING FORCE BEHIND HIS

QUEST FOR SUCCESS.

THERE ARE SO MANY

DECISIONS WE CAN'T MAKE

WITHOUT GOD, THE HOLY

SPIRIT, GUIDING US.

IT IS IMPORTANT FOR US TO

LEAN ON THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Reporter: GREEN

EMPLOYEES 13,000 EMPLOYEES

AND DOES HIS BEST TO CARE

FOR THEM.

OVER THE YEARS, HE HAS

RAISED THE MINIMUM WAGE TO

$11 AN HOUR, CLOSED HIS

STORES ON SUNDAY TO ALLOW

EMPLOYEES TIME FOR FAMILY,

AND EVEN HIRED CHAPLAINS TO

MINISTER TO HIS WORKERS.

BUT HE OBJECTS TO THE

OBAMACARE MANDATE THAT

REQUIRES EMPLOYERS TO

SUBSIDIZE BIRTH CONTROL AS

PART OF THE EMPLOYEE HEALTH

CARE BENEFITS.

GREEN BELIEVES LIFE BEGINS

AT CONCEPTION, AND OPPOSE

ANY BIRTH CONTROL THAT

PREVENTS THE IMPLANTATION OF

A FERTLIZED EGG IN THE

UTERUS.

HOBBY LOBBY AND ABOUT 40

OTHER COMPANIES HAVE FILED

SUIT.

THE SUPREME COURT WILL NOW

DECIDE WHETHER THE RELIGIOUS

VIEWS OF COMPANY OWNERS CAN

TRUMP A GOVERNMENT MANDATE.

THIS WILL BE THE FIRST

TIME THAT THE SUPREME COURT

HAS EVER RECOGNIZED THAT

CORPORATIONS ARE PROTECTED

IN THEIR RELIGIOUS LIBERTY

IN THE SAME WAY THAT LIVING,

BREATHING HUMAN BEINGS ARE.

Reporter: WHITE HOUSE

SPOKESMAN JAY CARNEY SAYS

THE HEALTH CARE LAW ,"

UNQUOTE PUTS WOMEN AND

FAMILIES IN CONTROL OF THEIR

HEALTH CARE," AND NOTES THAT

CHURCHES ARE EXEMPT FROM THE

MANDATE.

SO FAR THE LOWER COURTS HAVE

BEEN DIVIDED ON THE ISSUE.

SUPREME COURT JUSTICES WILL

LIKELY HEAR ARGUMENTS IN

MARCH AND DECIDE BY LATE

JUNE.

HEATHER CELLS, CBN NEWS.

Ephraim: AND IT'S NOT

JUST COMPANIES THAT ARE

FIGHTING THE BIRTH CONTROL

MANDATE.

40 NON-PROFITS, INCLUDING

CHRISTIAN CHECHES COLLEGES,

HOSPITALS AND MINISTRIES

HAVE FILED SUIT.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

IS TRYING TO LIMIT TAX

EXEMPT GROUP'S ABILITY TO

CAMPAIGN POLITICALLY.

THE TREASURY DEPARTMENT AND

THE INTERNAL REVENUE

DEPARTMENT WANT TO CHANGE

THE RULES FOR SO-CALLED

SOCIAL WELFARE GROUP.

THEY WANT TO BLOCK THEM IF

THEIR PRIMARY MISSION

INCLUDES RUNNING POLITICAL

ADS OR REGISTERS OR

EDUCATING VOTERS.

THE MOVE COMES FROM THE TEA

PARTY GROUPS THAT WERE

HARASSED.

DAVE CAMP SAYS, "THIS SMACKS

OF THE ADMINISTRATION TRYING

TO SHUT DOWN POTENTIAL

CRITICS."

Ephraim: THE CHRISTIAN

OWNERS OF A BED AND

BREAKFAST IN ENGLAND WHO

REFUSED TO RENT A ROOM TO A

GAY COUPLE HAVE LOST THEIR

APPEAL.

THEY WERE SUED TO PAY

DAMAGES FOR TURNING AWAY A

MALE COUPLE FROM THEIR

ESTABLISHMENT.

THEY SAY THEY'RE POLICY IS

BASED ON THEIR CHRISTIAN

BELIEF THAT MARRIAGE IS A

UNION OF A MAN AND A WOMAN.

THE COURT DISMISSED THE

CASE, SAYING THE POLICY

AMOUNTED TO SEXUAL

ORIENTATION DISCRIMINATION.

THE RULING IS THE FIRST OF

ITS KIND TO BE HANDED DOWN

BY THE U.K. SUPREME COURT.

CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS

ARE GROWING INCREASINGLY

WORRIED ABOUT THE PROBLEMS

WITH OBAMACARE.

PLITICO REPORTS THEY'RE

READY TO LAUNCH THEIR OWN

ATTACKS AGAINST PRESIDENT

OBAMA IF THE HEALTH CARE

WEBSITE ISN'T FIXED BY THE

END OF THE MONTH.

MANY DEMOCRATS ARE NOT

CONFIDENT THE ADMINISTRATION

HAS A PLAN TO FIX THE

FAILURES, OR HELP THEM IN

NEXT YEAR'S ELECTIONS.

THEY'RE WORRIED THE PROBLEMS

COULD LEAD TO THEIR DEFEAT

IN 2014.

THE NATIONAL MARKETING

STRATEGY FOR OBAMACARE IS

ESTIMATED TO COST ABOUT

$700 MILLION, BUT JUST AS

CONCERNING AS THE EXTREMELY

HIGH PRICE OF THE CAMPAIGN

IS THE KIND OF ADS IT IS

RUNNING THROUGHOUT THE

NATION.

WENDY GRIFFITH HAS MORE.

Wendy: THE CAMPAIGN'S

MAIN TARGETS ARE MOSTLY THE

WORKING POOR AND YOUNG

PEOPLE.

AND WHILE AARP IS

ENCOURAGING PARENTS TO NUDGE

THEIR KIDS ABOUT HEALTH

INSURANCE BY SENDING

THEM eCARDS, AN AD FOR

COLORADO'S INSURANCE

EXCHANGE IS PITCHING BIRTH

CONTROL COVERAGE FOR RANDOM

SEXUAL ENCOUNTERS, WITH THE

TAG LINE: "LET'S GET

PHYSICAL."

THIS AD SHOWS A YOUNG WOMAN

BOASTING ABOUT HOW EASY IT

IS TO GET BIRTH CONTROL WITH

OBAMACARE, SO ALL SHE HAS TO

WORRY ABOUT IS GETTING A GUY

BETWEEN THE COVERS.

DESPITE TRYING TO CONVINCE

BUYING OBAMACARE IS STILL A

GOOD CONDITION, REPUBLICANS

SAY IT IS STILL A DISASTER.

CERTAINLY THE ROLLOUT AND

A MALFUNCTIONING WEBSITE

ISN'T THE PROBLEM.

OBAMACARE ITSELF IS THE

PROBLEM.

A ROAD TOWARDS MEDICINE THAT

IS UNAFFORDABLE, UNASKED

FOR, UNPOPULAR, AND NOT

WORKABLE.

PEOPLE WANT OBAMACARE

SCRAPPED.

ON AVERAGE, THE LATEST

REPORT SAYS 41% PREMIUM

INCREASE THROUGHOUT THE

NATION.

IN FIVE STATES, THE PREMIUMS

HAVE GONE UP 100%.

WE HAVE TO SCRAP IT AND

START ANEW, AND GET A

BIPARTISAN PLAN TO PUTS THE

PATIENT FIRST AND LOWERS THE

PREMIUMS.

THE MAYOR OF PHILADELPHIA

AND OTHER LEADERS ARE SAYING

THEY WON'T TOLERATE THE

KNOCK-OUT GAME IN THEIR

CITY.

THEY ARE FIGHTING OUT

AGAINST THE SOMETIMES DEADLY

ATTACKS, WHERE TEENS

APPROACH STRANGERS AND TRY

TO KNOCK THEM OUT, SOMETIMES

WITH A SINGLE PUNCH.

THE ATTACKS HAVE HAPPENED IN

SEVERAL STATES, AT LEAST TWO

PEOPLE HAVE DIED.

REPORTS SAY SOME OF THE

ATTACKS ARE RACIALLY

MOTIVATED.

THIS VIDEO SHOWS ONE

PITTSBURGH VICTIM GETTING

KNOCKED UNCONSCIOUS LAST

YEAR.

IT IS DISTURBING AND

FRIGHTFUL.

I'M GRATEFUL I'M HERE TO

TALK ABOUT IT.

IT IS A TERRIBLE THING.

IT'S NOT COMFORTABLE LOOKING

AT IT.

Reporter: THIS BROOKLYN

MAN SUFFERED A BRAIN-INJURED

AFTER HE WAS PUNCHED IN THE

FACE AND IT FRACTURED HIS

SKULL.

NOW THE 62-YEAR-OLD WAS IN

IS IN A NURSING HOME.

THIS IS ONE PUNCH, AN

INNOCENT MAN WALKING DOWN

THE STREET, MINDING HIS OWN

BUSINESS.

AND HIS LIFE HAS CHANGED

FOREVER.

AND IT'S NEVER GOING TO GO

BACK TO WHAT IT USED TO BE.

IT'S HARD TO CONFIRM, BUT

NUMEROUS REPORTS INDICATE

THAT THE VICTIMS ARE BEING

ATTACKED FOR THEIR RACE OR

RELIGION.

IN ONE CASE THEY HAVE

CHARGED THE ASSAILANTS WITH

A HATE CRIME FOR TARGETING A

JEW.

Ephraim: HALLS ARE

DEALING WITH SNOW, SLEET OR

RAIN FROM THE MASSIVE STORM

SYSTEM.

IT IS THREATENING

THANKSGIVING PLANS ON ONE OF

THE BUSIEST TRAVEL DAYS OF

THE YEAR.

IN NORTH CAROLINA,

WIDESPREAD DAMAGE AFTER A

POSSIBLE TORNADO TOUCHED

DOWN, DAMAGING HOMES,

KNOCKING DOWN POWER LINES,

AND INJURING SEVERAL

PEOPLE.

AND IN NEW YORK CITY, THE

STORM SYSTEM THREATENS AN

87-YEAR TRADITION, THE

MACY'S THANKSGIVING DAY

PARADE.

HIGH WINDS COULD CAUSE THE

BIG CHARACTER BALLOONS TO BE

GROUNDED.

JUST SIX MONTH AGO, ONE

OF THE MOST DESTRUCTIVE

TORNADOES EVER RECORDED

LEVELLED PARTS OF MOORE,

OKLAHOMA.

TO ENCOURAGE THIS CITY SOUTH

OF OKLAHOMA CITY, THE

ORGANIZATION KNOWN AS MERCY

CHEFS PROVIDED A HEARTY

THANKSGIVING MEAL.

MARK MARTIN HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: THE MASSIVE

EF-5 TORNADO INJURED NEARLY

400, AND TOOK THE LIVES OF

23 PEOPLE, INCLUDING SEVEN

CHILDREN AT PLAZA TOWERS

ELEMENTARY.

210 MILE-AN-HOUR WINDS

DESTROYED THIS SCHOOL.

A MEMORIAL OF SEVEN CROSSES

HONORS THE LIVES OF THE

STUDENTS.

THE TWO-MILE WIDE TORNADO

ALSO LEVELLED BRIARWOOD

ELEMENTARY.

TEACHER DONNA GOODMAN

HUNKERED DOWN UNDER A DESK

WITH 15 STUDENTS WHEN THE

TWISTER HIT.

ALL OF A SUDDEN I SAW

DAYLIGHT, AND I REALIZED

THAT THE ROOF WAS COMING

OFF.

I JUST REMEMBER SHUTTING MY

EYES REALLY TIGHT, HOLDING

ON TO THE KIDS I COULD

TOUCH, AND TELLING THEM IT

WAS GOING TO BE OKAY, WE

WERE GOING TO MAKE IT.

Reporter: A HOT

THANKSGIVING MEAL PROVIDED

BY VIRGINIA-BASED MERCY

CHEFS, AND SOUTH GATE

BAPTIST CHURCH IN MOORE

HELPS A COMMUNITY THAT HAS

BEEN THROUGH SO MUCH TO

HEAL.

ONE OF THE THINGS WE HOPE

THEY DON'T EXPERIENCE IS

BEING IN ANOTHER LINE FOR A

HANDOUT.

WE WANT TO SET A TABLE OF

HOSPITALITY.

WE WANT THEM TO BE WELCOMED

AND VALUED.

FORGET ABOUT THEIR

PROBLEMS FOR A WHILE.

IT IS NICE TO SEE THEIR

FACES WHEN THE LEVEL OF

ANXIETY LEAVES THEIR FACES.

AS MUCH AS ANYTHING ELSE,

I LOVE TO SEE THE CHURCH BE

THE CHURCH.

TO SEE PEOPLE FROM ALL KINDS

OF BACKGROUNDS, ALL DENOM

DENOMINATIONS ARE ABLE TO

COME TOGETHER AND SERVE AND

HAVE ONE DIRECTIVE AND ONE

MOTIVE, AND THAT IS TO CARE

FOR PEOPLE AND TO SHARE AND

SHOW THE LOVE OF JESUS

CHRIST.

WE'RE ALWAYS THANKFUL FOR

OUR FAMILIES, FOR OUR HOMES,

FOR THE GOD WHO SAVED US.

BUT THIS YEAR PEOPLE ARE

GOING TO REALIZE WHAT THEY

WERE SAVED FROM.

PEOPLE WERE SAVED FROM

DEATH.

PEOPLE WERE SAVED FROM

DESTRUCTION.

PEOPLE WERE PULLED OUT FROM

RUBBLE WHERE THEY SHOULD NOT

HAVE SURVIVED.

AND IT MAKES YOU MORE

THANKFUL FOR THE LIFE THAT

YOU HAVE.

Reporter: IN THIS

SEASON OF THANKSGIVING,

SURVIVORS OF THE MOORE,

OKLAHOMA, TORNADO SHARE A

MEAL PREPARED BY GENEROUS,

MERCIFUL HANDS.

IT IS A BOOST TO THOSE WHO

HAVE SUFFERED GREAT LOSS AND

PRESS ON TO REBUILD.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Ephraim: COMING UP,

SHOWING THE LOVE OF GOD TO

THE TYPHOON VICTIMS IN THE

PHILIPPINES.

SEE HOW ONE PASTOR IS MOVING

PAST HIS OWN GRIEF TO HELP

OTHER SURVIVORS.

Ephraim: THE CROSS

MEMORIAL AT GROUND ZERO IS

AT THE CENTER OF A NEW

DISPUTE.

AN ATHEIST GROUP CLAIMED THE

CROSS MEMORIAL IS

UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

AND NOW THEY HAVE FILED AN

APPEAL, SAYING THEY SUFFERED

FROM EMOTIONAL AND PHYSICAL

DAMAGES FROM THE MERE

EXISTENCE OF THE COURT.

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW

AND JUSTICE IS ASKING THE

APPEALS COURT TO UP HOLD THE

LOWER COURT'S DECISION.

THE SUPREME COURT HAS RULED

THAT EXHIBITS LIKE THE CROSS

ARE ALLOWED BY THE

CONSTITUTION.

THE WHITE HOUSE IS

PLEADING WITH IRAN FOR THE

RELEASE OF THREE AMERICAN

HOSTAGES, INCLUDING PASTOR

SAEED ABEDINI.

WHITE HOUSE SPOKESMAN JOSH

ERNEST SAYS OBAMA BROUGHT UP

THE U.S. PRISONERS DURING A

PHONE CONVERSATION WITH

HASSAN ROUHANI EARLIER THIS

FALL.

THE WHITE HOUSE ASKED HIM TO

CONSIDER RELEASING THE

AMERICANS ON HUMANITARIAN

GROUNDS.

Ephraim: AID IS STILL

URGENTLY NEEDED SEVERAL

WEEKS AFTER TYPHOON HAIYAN

BATTLED THE CENTRAL

PHILIPPINES.

SURVIVORS ARE TRYING TO COPE

WITH THE LOSS OF LOVED ONES,

HOMES, AND POSSESSIONS.

AS LUCILLE TALUSEN REPORTS,

SOME ARE STILL UNSELFISHLY

HELPING OTHERS, LIKE ONE

PASTOR WHO LOST SOME OF HIS

FAMILY IN THE DISASTER.

Reporter: TWO WEEKS

AFTER, VILLAGERS ARE STILL

STRUGGLING TO SURVIVE.

THIS IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE

REASONS WHY THE PEOPLE IN

THE INTERIOR COMMUNITIES

FIND IT SO DIFFICULT TO GO

OUT TO WHERE THEY CAN GET

MEDICAL AID AND TO WHERE

THEY CAN GET RELIEF GOODS.

THE STINKY PILES OF GARBAGE

ARE EVERYWHERE, AND DEAD

BODIES ARE STILL BEING

DISCOVERED.

LIKE THE GRANDDAUGHTER OF

THIS MAN, RICO, WHO STOPPED

US TO SHARE HIS HEARTACHE.

THAT IS MY GRANDDAUGHTER

ALONG THE ROAD.

WE JUST FOUND HER THIS

MORNING.

THE OTHER ONE IS STILL

MISSING.

WE ALSO LOST OUR HOUSE.

EVERYTHING IS GONE.

Reporter: THIS LADY

PASTOR ACCOMPANIED US.

SHE PRAYED FOR RICO AND

INVITED HIM TO ATTEND

CHURCH.

MANY, LIKE RICO, HAVE TURNED

TO GOD BECAUSE OF THE

TRAGEDY.

BUT EVEN THE MOST FAITHFUL

CHURCH WORKERS HAVE ALSO

EXPERIENCED HARDSHIP AND

LOSS.

SO THIS IS WHERE PASTOR

DANTE LIVES, AND THIS IS

WHERE HIS THREE CHILDREN

WERE SWEPT AWAY BY THE

SURGING WATERS.

WE WERE HOLDING ON TO THE

BEAM OF OUR CEILING WHEN THE

BIG WAVES COLLAPSED OUR

HOUSE.

AND WE WERE SWALLOWED BY THE

BIG WAVES.

Reporter: ONLY ONE SON

SURVIVED.

WHEN THE WATER SUBSIDED,

THEY FOUND THE BODIES OF

THEIR SONS, AGED 13 AND 7,

CLUTCHING EACH OTHER.

WHILE THE BODY OF THEIR

5-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER WAS

FOUND THE NEXT DAY,

UNDERNEATH A NEIGHBOR'S DOG

WHO GUARDED HER OVERNIGHT.

WE WILL MISS THEM SO

MUCH.

WE WORKED SO HARD FOR THEIR

FUTURE.

THEY HELPED US IN OUR

FEEDING MINISTRY.

WE FEED THE CHILDREN, BUT

ALL OF THAT IS GONE.

WE DON'T KNOW WHERE TO

START, BUT WE BELIEVE GOD

WILL NOT FORSAKE US.

HE HAS A PURPOSE, WHY WE ARE

STILL ALIVE.

Reporter: AND SHE IS

ALSO GRIEVING OVER THE DEATH

OF HER MOTHER AND 13 OTHER

FAMILY MEMBERS.

WE NOTICED A WOUND UNDER HER

FOOT, AND WE TOOK HER AND

SURVIVING FAMILY MEMBERS TO

A CBN DISASTER RELIEF

MEDICAL CLINIC.

A DOCTOR EXAMINED AND

CLEANED DOLORES' WOUND, AND

SHE WAS GIVEN A SHOT,

VITAMINS AND MEDICINE FOR

HER FAMILY.

THE FAMILY APPRECIATED TIME

WITH THE CBN COUNSELLOR, WHO

LISTENED TO THEM AND PRAYED

FOR THEIR NEEDS.

WE DID NOT EXPECT THAT

PEOPLE LIKE YOU WOULD COME

TO HELP US.

YOUR SMILES MAKE OUR HEARTS

SMILE AS WELL.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

COMFORTING AND ENCOURAGING

US.

THIS IS A VERY DIFFICULT

TIME FOR US, BUT WE SHALL

CLING TO THE LORD BECAUSE HE

ALONE GIVES US STRENGTH.

AND WE WILL CLING TO HIS

WORE BECAUSE HIS WORD ALONE

WILL SUSTAIN US.

I DREMPT OF MY SON.

HE SAID, PAPA, DON'T WORRY

ABOUT US.

WE ARE TOGETHER HERE, AND WE

ARE VERY HAPPY.

Reporter: LUCILLE

TALUSEN, CBN NEWS, TACLOBAN,

PHILIPPINES.

UP NEXT, MAKING SURE YOUR

THANKSGIVING TURKEY IS NOT

ONLY TASTY, BUT SAFE FOR

YOUR FAMILY'S HEALTH.

Ephraim: AMERICANS ARE

GEARING UP FOR THANKSGIVING

TOMORROW, BUT IF YOU ARE

ABOUT TO DEFROST THAT

TURKEY, THERE IS SOMETHING

YOU SHOULD KNOW.

THAT THANKSGIVING TURKEY

COULD BE DANGEROUS IF YOU

DON'T HANDLE IT RIGHT.

LORI JOHNSON TELLS US HOW

YOU CAN AVOID SOME OF THE

HAZARDS THAT COME WITH YOUR

TURKEY DINNER.

Reporter: ALTHOUGH IT

MAY LOOK SAFE, YOUR

THANKSGIVING TURKEY COULD BE

CONTAMINATED WITH

SALMONELLA.

DR. PHILIP SCHNEIDER SAYS

FOR MOST PEOPLE, THAT WOULD

RUIN THEIR HOLIDAY WEEKEND,

BUT FOR OTHERS, IT CAN BE

DEADLY.

PEOPLE USUALLY DEVELOP

DIARRHEA, FEVER, ABDOMINAL

CRAMPS, AND THEY WILL START

TO FEEL JUST FLU-LIKE

SYMPTOMS.

AND MOST PEOPLE WILL GET

THROUGH THESE JUST FINE IN

FOUR TO SEVEN DAYS.

PEOPLE WHO ARE VERY YOUNG,

LIKE INFANTS, OR YOUNG

CHILDREN, OR ELDERLY

INDIVIDUALS, OR SOMEBODY

WITH A COMPROMISED IMMUNE

SYSTEM, THEY WILL HAVE A

HARDER TIME FIGHTING THE

INFECTION.

Reporter: SALMONELLA IS

FOUND IN RAW TURKEY.

CHEF DAVID MILLER IS AN

INSTRUCTOR AT THE VIRGINIA

CULINARY INSTITUTE.

HE SAYS TURKEY SHOULD BE

THAWL THAWED IN THE

REFRIGERATOR, NOT AT ROOM

TEMPERATURE.

IF YOU HAVE TO RUSH IT,

THE BEST WAY TO DO IT IS

UNDER COOL, RUNNING WATER IN

THE SINK, SO THE TURKEY IS

COVERED, BUT THE WATER

COVERS IT THE WHOLE TIME.

Reporter: PUT YOUR

TURKEY ON A PAN IN THE

FRIDGE BECAUSE THE RAW

JUICES CAN INFECT EVERYTHING

THEY TOUCH.

AFTER YOU'RE HANDLING THE

RAW BIRD, YOU NEED TO MAKE

SURE THE SURFACES ARE CLEAN

AND YOU WASH YOUR HANDS

THOROUGHLY BEFORE HANDLING

ANYTHING ELSE.

Reporter: TO KILL

BACTERIA, USE SOAP OR MIX A

TABLESPOON OF BLEECH INTO A

GALLON OF WARM WATER, AND

USE PAPER TOWELS BECAUSE

SPONGES CAN BE A BREEDING

GROUND FOR BACTERIA.

NO OFFENSE TO GRANDMA, BUT

THE OLD-FASHIONED WAY OF

COOKING TURKEY FOR A LONG

PERIOD OF TIME AT A LOW

TEMPERATURE ISN'T SAFE

BECAUSE IT DIDN'T KILL ANY

BACTERIA THAT MIGHT BE IN

IT.

THE OVEN SHOULD AT LEAST

325°.

COOK THE TURKEY UNTIL IT

REACHES 165° AT THE INNER

MOST PART.

MOST CHEFS DO NOT RECOMMEND

STUFFING A TURKEY BECAUSE BY

THE TIME THE STUFFING

REACHES 165°, THE REST OF

THE TURKEY IS OVERCOOKED.

NOW, WHEN IT COMES TO

THANKSGIVING LEFTOVERS,

BEWARE OF A DIFFERENT KIND

OF BACTERIA, E.Coli.

ANY TIME YOU GET A

FOOD-BORNE ILLNESS, IT WILL

TAKE ANYWHERE FROM 12 TO 72

HOURS TO KNOW YOU'RE

STARTING TO GET THE

SYMPTOMS.

OFTENTIMES IT IS VERY

DIFFICULT TO KNOW WHEN IT IS

A FOOD-BORNE ILLNESS VERSUS

A VIRAL INFECTION.

THE BACTERIA DANGER ZONE

IS BETWEEN 40 AND 140°.

MAKE SURE YOUR FRIDGE IS

COOL ENOUGH, AND GET THOSE

LEFTOVERS IN THERE WITHIN

TWO HOURS, SEPARATING ANY

BIG DISHES INTO SMALL

CONTAINERS.

AND THEN EAT OR FREEZE THOSE

LEFTOVERS WITHIN FOUR DAYS.

WHEN TALKING ABOUT TURKEY

SAFETY, BE VERY CAREFUL IF

YOU'RE DEEP-FRYING IT.

ALTHOUGH IT HAS BECOME A

VERY POPULAR TO COOK

THANKSGIVING DINNER, IT CAN

ALSO BE VERY DANGEROUS.

OVER FILLING THE TURKEY

FRYER IS THE MOST COMMON

MISTAKE.

TO PREVENT THIS, FIRST TEST

WITH WATER HOW MUCH OIL

YOU'LL NEED.

DON'T PUT YOUR FRYER IN A

GARAGE OR UP AGAINST A

WALL.

AND MAKE SURE YOUR TURKEY IS

COMPLETELY DRY AND DEFROSTED

BEFORE YOU SLOWLY PLACE IT

IN THE OIL.

FIRE CHIEF TIM REILLY SAYS

THANKSGIVING IS THE PEAK DAY

FOR HOME FIRES.

YOU SHOULD ALWAYS HAVE

GLOVES.

YOU SHOULD ALWAYS HAVE EYE

GOGGLES.

YOU SHOULD NEVER BE ON THE

DECK.

YOU SHOULD NEVER BE INSIDE.

HAVE A STABLE PLATFORM AND

BE FAMILIAR WITH THE

OPERATION OF YOUR TURKEY

FRYER.

Reporter: THERE IS ONE

EXCEPTION TO THE OUTDOOR

ONLY RULE, AND THAT'S IF

YOU'RE USING A FRYER

SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR

INDOOR USE.

AND REGARDLESS OF HOW YOU'RE

COOKING YOUR TURKEY, IF YOU

GET A MINOR BURN, PUT IT

UNDER COOL WATER.

DO NOT PUT ICE OR BUTTER ON

IT.

IF THE SKIN BREAKS, KEEP

IT COVERED TO PREVENT A

SECONDARY INFECTION.

AND PUT AN ANTIBIOTIC

OINTMENT ON THERE.

IF THERE IS A BLISTER FROM

THE BURN, TRY NOT TO POP THE

BLISTER.

KEEP IT COVERED AS LONG AS

POSSIBLE.

AND DON'T USE HIJACKE HYDRO

GEN PEROXIDE.

HOPEFULLY THESE TIPS WILL

HELP YOU AND YOUR FAMILY

SIDE STEP ANY MISHAPS, AND

FULLY ENJOY THE BLESSINGS OF

THANKSGIVING.

LORI JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

GOOD INFORMATION,

EPHRAIM.

I'M GOING TO HAVE SOMEONE

COOK IT FOR ME AND BRING IT

BACK.

I WOULDN'T DO THAT MYSELF.

STAY WITH US.

WE'RE COMING RIGHT BACK.

AN INSPIRING STORY FROM

MAX LUCADO IS NOW IN

THEATERS.

Ephraim: IT IS CALLED

"THE CHRISTMAS CANDLE," AND

SOME SAY IT IS ON ITS WAY TO

BECOMING A HOLIDAY CLASSIC.

"THE CHRISTMAS CANDLE" IS AN

INSPIRING MOVIE, SET IN A

SIMPLER TIME IN ENGLAND.

JOHN STEVENSON IS THE FILM'S

DIRECTOR.

IT IS ALL SET IN THE

INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION, WHICH

IS REALLY AN IMPORTANT PART

OF THE MOVIE BECAUSE THINGS

ARE CHANGING.

Ephraim: STEVENSON

GUIDES AN ALL-STAR CAST IN A

HEART-WARMING STORY, BASED

ON MAX'S 2006 NOVEL.

SAMANTHA PARKS PLACE

OPPOSITE THE MAIN

CHARACTER.

HE LOST HIS WIFE AND HIS

CHILD.

THERE IS SORT OF A HIDDEN

ANGER IN HIM.

Ephraim: MATHESON PLAYS

A MINISTER, CALLED TO LEAD A

CHURCH IN A TINY VILLAGE.

TOM NEWMAN IS THE FILM'S

PRODUCER.

IF YOU KNOW YOU'RE GIVEN

THE CHRISTMAS CANDLE, AND

EVERYONE WHO HAS GOT THAT

CANDLE FOR 200 YEARS, THEIR

PRAYS HAVE BEEN ANSWERED,

WHAT WOULD YOU DO TO GET

THAT CANDLE?

Ephraim: NEWMAN AND HIS

FELLOW FILM-MAKERS SAY THERE

WERE EVEN MIRACLES IN THE

VERY MAKING OF THIS MOVIE.

THEY INCLUDE LANDING SUSAN

BOYLE FOR HER BIG-SCREEN

DEBUT, FOR A ROLE THAT WAS

ACTUALLY WRITTEN WITH HER IN

MIND.

IT IN INSPIRES ME.

YOU NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR

DREAMS.

Frances: AND

Ephraim: AND

BELIEVING --

WHAT IS THIS CHRISTMAS

CANDLE --

IT IS NO DIFFERENT THAN

OLD WIVES TALES.

Ephraim: IT IS THE

MESSAGE FILM-MAKERS WANT

AUDIENCES TO RECEIVE.

WE CAN BE BETTER THAN ONE

ANOTHER.

WHEN WE ARE IN NEED, WE

BELIEVE THAT GOD IS THERE TO

HELP US AS WELL.

I'VE GOT TO CHECK THAT

ONE OUT.

Ephraim: JUST IN TIME

FOR THE HOLIDAYS.

THAT'S IT FOR NOW.

ON CBN NEWS TODAY, YOU CAN

FIND MORE OF OUR EXCLUSIVE

COVERAGE ON CBNNEWS.COM.

Ephraim: AND TO TELL US

ABOUT WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT

THE STORIES YOU'VE SEEN HERE

TODAY, YOU CAN DO IT AS CBN

NEWS OR ON TWITTER.

MAKE IT A WONDERFUL

WEDNESDAY, EVERYBODY.
