The 700 Club - Dec. 11, 2013

Decorator Carleton Varney discusses the importance of incorporating vibrant colors and filtering out the drab. Plus, when Mrs. Liu saw Jia Lin in the orphanage for the first time, she felt an instant connection despite her desperate need for ... ... Read Transcript


THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON

GIVING.

THE BEST MARRIAGE

INSURANCE.

THE BEST GIFT THAT YOU'RE

GOING TO GIVE EACH OTHER IS

TO COME THROUGH THIS

COUNSELLING.

PLUS, MEET MR. COLOR

HIMSELF.

WAS BORN WITH THE ABILITY

TO SEE COLOR LIKE MANY

PEOPLE DON'T SEE IT.

AND TAKE A CHRISTMAS TOUR

OF THE SPECTACULAR GREEN

GREENBRIAR RESORT.

ARE YOU READY TO GO

THROUGH A TOUR OF THE

CHRISTMAS TREES.

I'LL TAKE YOU AROUND.

*

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

WENDY IS WITH US TODAY.

IT IS GOOD TO SEE YOU.

DO YOU LIKE SHOPPING ON

CHRISTMAS, OR IS IT KIND OF

A DRAG?

Wendy: THAT'S A REALLY

GOOD QUESTION.

I STARTED DOING THE ONLINE

STUFF A LITTLE BIT MORE.

IT IS SO CONVENIENT.

YOU GO TO THE DEPARTMENT

STORES, AND THEY DON'T HAVE

WHAT YOU WANT.

Pat: MY WIFE IS A

CATALOG A CATALOG PERSON.

I THINK THE CATALOG

COMPANIES WOULD GO OUT IF

SHE WEREN'T THERE.

I WAS READING ABOUT CHINA,

AND THEY MAKE A BIG DEAL

ABOUT CHRISTMAS.

THIS YOUNG COUPLE GOES OUT

AND THE GIRL REALLY DIGS

SHOPPING.

SO SHE CARRIED HER FIANCE

ALONG WITH HER FOR FIVE

AGONIZING HOURS OF

SHOPPING.

Wendy: THAT'S A NICE

FIANCE.

Pat: AND HE SAID, I

JUST CAN'T DO THIS ANYMORE.

AND SHE SAID, I'VE GOT TO

LOOK AT ANOTHER PAIR OF

SHOES.

AND HE SAID, YOU'VE GOT A

CLOSET FULL OF SHOES, AND

YOU DON'T NEED ANYMORE.

AND SHE SAID, YOU'RE JUST AN

OLD SKIN FLINT, AND YOU RUIN

CHRISTMAS.

AND SHE STORMED OUT.

SO WHAT DOES HE DO?

HE JUMPS OFF THE LEDGE OF

THIS THREE OR FOUR STORY

DEPARTMENT STORE AND KILLED

HIMSELF.

Wendy: THAT'S THE WORST

ACROSS STORY EVER.

Pat: YOU HEARD "SHOP

'TIL YOU DROP," WELL, FORGET

IT.

THOSE IN CONGRESS ARE AT IT

AGAIN.

IS IT GOOD FOR TAXPAYERS OR

DOES IT JUST MEAN MORE

SPENDING.

Wendy: THE PEOPLE WHO

PUT THE BILL TOGETHER SAY IT

AVOIDS ANOTHER GOVERNMENT

SHUTDOWN, BUT AS DAVID BRODY

REPORTS, NOT EVERYBODY

THINKS IT IS A GOOD PLAN.

David: IN WASHINGTON,

IT SEEMS SUCCESS ON BUDGET

TALKS JUST MEANS DEMOCRATS

AND REPUBLICANS AGREEING TO

SOMETHING, ANYTHING FOR THAT

MATTER.

SO IT WAS A RARE SIGHT TO

SEE A TOP REPUBLICAN AND A

TOP DEMOCRAT STANDING SIDE

BY SIDE.

WE ARE SHOWING THAT

GOVERNMENT CAN WORK AT THE

BASIC LEVELS, WHICH IS

PAYING THE WORK.

David: HERE IS THE

FRAMEWORK OF THAT COMMON

GROUND: $63 BILLION IN

INCREASED DOMESTICS

SPENDING.

BECAUSE DEMOCRATS WERE ABLE

TO ELIMINATE HALF OF THE

SHARP SEQUESTER CUTS THAT

REPUBLICANS FOUGHT HARD FOR

LAST YEAR.

SO THAT'S A VICTORY FOR

DEMOCRATS.

BUT G.O.P. LEADERS SAY IT IS

ALSO GOOD FOR REPUBLICANS

BECAUSE THOSE SEQUESTER CUTS

WERE GOING TO HURT MILITARY

SPENDING.

WHAT ELSE DO REPUBLICANS

GET?

$85BILLION IN BUDGET CUTS,

BUT THEY'RE GOING TO HAPPEN

OVER TIME.

DOING THE MATH, THAT'S

$85 BILLION IN REDUCED

SPENDING, MINUS $63 BILLION

IN INCREASED SPENDING, AND

IT COMES TO ROUGHLY

$22 BILLION IN DEFICIT

REDUCTION.

BUT THE SPENDING INCREASES

WILL START RIGHT AWAY.

THE SPENDING CUTS, DON'T.

IN AN INTERVIEW WITH CBN

NEWS, SENATOR JOHN THUNE

SAYS HE IS TAKING A WAIT AND

WAIT AND SEE APPROACH.

IT LOOKS LIKE IT WOULD

EXTEND SPENDING IN EXCHANGE

FOR SAVINGS IN FUTURE

YEARS.

I THINK FOR REPUBLICANS, THE

QUESTION IS: WHAT ARE THOSE

SAVINGS.

David: PRESIDENT OBAMA

IS PRAISING THE DEAL, AND SO

ARE HOUSE AND SENATE

LEADERS.

ALL SAY THIS GIVES AMERICANS

THE CONFIDENCE THERE WON'T

BE ANY TALK OF A GOVERNMENT

SHUTDOWN FOR TWO YEARS.

HOWEVER, THE DEAL DOES NOT

ADDRESS FUTURE DEBATES OVER

RAISING THE DEBT CEILING.

FOR NOW, THE FOCUS OF MANY

CONSERVATIVES IS THEY

BELIEVE REPUBLICANS ARE

GETTING TAKEN TO THE

CLEANERS YET AGAIN.

ERIC ERICKSON WRITES HOW THE

DEAL, QUOTE,"DOES NOT IMPACT

THE NATIONAL DEBT."

AND SENATOR RUBIO SAID,

"THIS BUDGET CONTINUES

WASHINGTON'S IRRESPONSIBLE

BUDGETING DECISIONS."

AND THE TEA PARTY EXPRESS

CALLED THIS DEAL

A, QUOTE,"BABY STEP

BACKWARD."

PAUL RYAN IS FEELING ALL OF

THIS HEAT, BUT DEFENDING THE

DEAL.

THIS SAYS LET'S CUT

SPENDING IN A SMARTER WAY,

SOME PERMANENT SPENDING CUTS

TO PAY FOR A SEQUESTER

RELIEF, WITH A REDUCTION,

WITHOUT RAISING TAXES.

Reporter: RYAN BELIEVES

THE HOUSE WILL PASS THIS

DEAL, AND PATTY MURRAY IS

CONFIDENT THE DEMOCRATS WILL

DO THE SAME IN THE SENATE.

BUT REPUBLICANS LIKE THUNE

BELIEVE THAT UNDER THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION, TRUE,

MEANINGFUL REFORM, WILL BE

HARD TO COME BACK.

MOST OF WHAT HAPPENS IN

WASHINGTON, TO ME, AT LEAST,

IS HOW CAN WE SPEND MORE AT

THE FEDERAL LEVEL?

HOW CAN WE REGULATE MORE?

HOW CAN WE TAX MORE?

AND THAT, TO ME, IS THE

OPPOSITE PRESCRIPTION FOR

WHAT WE NEED TO GET THE

ECONOMY GROWING AGAIN.

David: DAVI DAVID

BRODY, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Pat: ISN'T IT A SHAME

THAT THE REPUBLICANS SELL

OUT AND THE DEMOCRATS SELL

OUT.

ALL THEY WANT TO DO IS KEEP

THE INTEREST GROUPS OFF

THEIR BACK AND SPEND AND

SPEND AND SPEND.

WE'VE GOT A POTENTIALLY

TRILLION DOLLAR A YEAR

DEFICIT.

AND YOU'RE GOING TO TAKE OFF

$20 BILLION.

THAT'S GOING TO BE WHAT

YOU'RE GOING TO OFFER TO THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE.

THAT MAY BE ILLUSIONRY.

AND ALL OF THE WASTE AND ALL

OF THE PORK AND ALL OF THE

THINGS THAT ARE THERE, AND

EVERYBODY HAS A SPECIAL

INTEREST, AND THEY'RE LINING

UP AT THE TROUGH TO GET

THEIR PIECE OF THE PORK.

WHAT ABOUT YOU AND ME?

SOONER OR LATER OUR CHILDREN

AND GRANDCHILDREN ARE GOING

TO HAVE TO PAY FOR THIS

THING OR THIS GREAT COUNTRY

WE LOVE SO MUCH WILL BE IN

THE ASH HEAP OF HISTORY.

THE BUDGET WON'T BE THE BIG

ISSUE IN NEXT YEAR'S

ELECTIONS, BUT THE

PRESIDENT'S HEALTH CARE LAW

WILL.

NEW POLLS SHOW IT IS CAUSING

ENORMOUS POLITICAL PROBLEMS

FOR THE PRESIDENT AND THE

DEMOCRATS.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: THAT'S

RIGHT.

PEOPLE WHO DON'T HAVE HEALTH

INSURANCE DON'T LIKE

OBAMACARE, ACCORDING TO A

NEW POLL.

ONLY 24% OF UNINSURED

AMERICANS THINK OBAMACARE IS

A GOOD IDEA, WHILE HALF

THINK IT IS A BAD ONE.

AND ONLY 34% OF VOTERS

APPROVE OF HOW PRESIDENT HAS

HANDLED HEALTH CARE, WHILE

62% DISAPPROVE.

FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS

YEAR, MORE VOTERS SAY THEY

WOULD PICK A REPUBLICAN OVER

A DEMOCRAT IN A GENERIC RACE

FOR CONGRESS.

TURNING OVERSEAS, IS THE

UNITED STATES LOSING

INFLUENCE IN THE MIDDLE

EAST?

THAT'S A QUESTION MANY OF

AMERICA'S TRADITIONAL ALLIES

ARE ASKING AFTER THE SIGNING

OF THE HEAVILY CRITICIZED

DEAL WITH IRAN.

THE CONSEQUENCES ARE ALREADY

RIPPING THROUGH THE REGION.

Reporter: AFTER GENEVA,

MANY MIDDLE EAST EXPERTS SEE

A STRONGER IRAN, A WEAKER

AMERICA, AND A REGION

TEETERING ON THE BRINK.

WE IN THE MIDDLE EAST, WE

IN ISRAEL, SEE THAT THEY ARE

OPPRESSED.

THEY ARE CONFUSED, AND THEY

DON'T BELIEVE ANYMORE IN THE

AMERICAN INFLUENCE IN THE

REGION.

Reporter: FOR DECADES

AMERICAN INFLUENCE ACTED

LIKE A RUTTER, STEERING

EVENTS IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

NOW MANY MIDEAST EXPERTS,

LIKE FORMER ISRAELI

AMBASSADOR TO EGYPT, BELIEVE

THE REGION IS LOSING ITS

WAY.

THE MIDDLE EAST HAS LOST

ITS COMPASS.

IN THE OLD TIMES IT USED TO

BE THE SO SOVIET UNION AND

THE UNITED STATES O UNITED

STATES.

AND NOW EVERYBODY GOES THEIR

OWN WAY.

THE PERCEPTION IS AMERICA

WILL NOT BE AROUND HERE FOR

LONG, AND IRAN IS THE COMING

SUPER POWER.

Reporter: A MAJOR

CHANGE IN U.S.-MIDEAST

POLICY IS THE ATTEMPT TO

TURN IRAN FROM AN ADVERSARY

TO A FRIEND.

IT IS NOT COMPLETELY A

FRIEND YET, BUT I'M SAYING

IT IS ON THE WAY TO IT.

I BELIEVE THIS IS WHAT

PRESIDENT OBAMA SEES, THAT

THERE WILL BE A DIALOGUE

WITH IRAN, AND THERE WILL BE

RELATIONS WITH AMERICA, AND

IRAN WILL BECOME A GOOD

BOY.

A GOOD STUDENT.

WE DON'T BELIEVE IT.

Reporter: THE

DIPLOMATIC COURTSHIP WITH

IRAN AND THE PERCEPTION OF

WANING U.S. INFLUENCE HAVE

LED THE SHIFTING AND

UNPRECEDENTED ALLIANCES IN

THE REGION.

SINCE MANY MIDEAST NATIONS

SEE IRAN AS A THREAT, THE

GULF STATES ARE CONSIDERING

UNITING FOR THEIR OWN

SELF-DEFENSE.

AND BOTH EGYPT AND SAUDI

ARABIA HAVE REACHED OUT TO

FIND ANOTHER ALLY BESIDES

THE UNITED STATES.

THERE IS NOW A DIALOGUE

BETWEEN SAUDI ARABIA AND THE

RUSSIANS.

IT DOESN'T HAPPEN EVERY

DAY.

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?

HE WENT TWICE TO MOSCOW.

Reporter: THEY NOW SEE

THE MIDDLE EAST WITH AMERICA

RETREATING AND RUSSIA

ADVANCING.

PUTIN AND ISRAEL ARE A

VERY HAPPY MAN.

AMERICA IS GOING AWAY.

Reporter: MAZEL WARNS

RUSSIA'S COMEBACK IN THE

MIDDLE EAST IS ONE

CONSEQUENCE OF U.S.-MIDEAST

POLICY.

AND HE WARNS IF IRAN DOES

GET A NUCLEAR BOMB, IT WOULD

BE THE BEGINNING OF A

MIDEAST NUCLEAR ARMS RACE.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

PAT, CHRIS' STORY PAINTS

A SOBERING AND DIRE

PICTURE.

Pat: THE FORMER

SECRETARY OF THE NAVY HAD A

PIECE DAY BEFORE YESTERDAY

IN THE WALL STREET JOURNAL,

ABOUT THE RETREAT THAT THE

UNITED STATES MADE IN ITS

MILITARY FORCES.

WE'VE GOT HALF AS MANY

DIVISIONS AS WE USED TO

HAVE.

WE'VE GOT LESS HALF, MAYBE A

THIRD, OF AS MANY SHIPS THAN

WE USED TO HAVE.

IN TERMS OF AIRPLANES READY

TO FLY, ABOUT HALF OUR

MORE.

IN OTHER WORDS, OUR FORCES

HAVE DIMINISHED

DRAMATICALLY.

AND, YET, ACCORDING TO THIS

FORMER SECRETARY OF THE

NAVY, PERCEPTIVE, BUT THE

AMOUNT OF OVERHEAD HAS RISEN

EXPEDENTIALLY.

A HUGE NUMBER OF PEOPLE NOT

DOING ANYTHING BUT PUSHING

PEOPLE.

IN TERMS OF THE PEOPLE ON

THE FRONT LINES, THEIR

INFLUENCE HAS WANED AND

DIMINISHED.

BUT IN TERMS OF THE

PAPER-PUSHERS, THEY HAVE

GROWN ENORMOUSLY, WHICH IS

THE DEFINITION OF

BUREAUCRATIC WASTE AND

MISMANAGEMENT AND FATNESS,

THAT WE ALL THROUGHOUT THE

GOVERNMENT -- WE ARE FAT AND

WE ARE LAZY AND WE ARE

MISMANAGED, AND IT IS JUST

RIGHT ACROSS THE BOARD

BECAUSE WE HAVE AT THE HEAD

OF OUR GOVERNMENT SOMEBODY

WHO NEVER RAN ANYTHING.

NEVER BEEN IN CHARGE OF

ANYTHING.

NEVER MET A PAYROLL.

ALL OF THOSE THINGS ARE

THERE.

NEVER, NEVER, NEVER.

AND HE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND

WHAT THESE THINGS ARE.

HE HAS NEVER BEEN IN THE

MILITARY.

HE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND IT.

HE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND

GEOPOLITICS.

BUT HE HAS A PRISIM ON THE

WORLD THAT WAS SHAPED BY HIS

RADICAL FATHER.

AND HE HAS A PRISM ON THE

WORLD OF FRIENDS WHO WERE

RADICAL MENTORS.

THAT'S WHO IS RUNNING OR

COUNTRY.

AND IT'S -- WE'RE KIND OF

WAITING, LIKE, ARE WE EVER

GOING TO GET DELIVERED FROM

THIS THING?

THIS IS A GREAT NATION.

IT IS, LIKE, HERE IS THIS

GIANT WHO IS BEING HELD DOWN

BY ALL OF THESE PYGMIES.

AND WE'RE A GIANT.

AMERICA IS A GIANT, BEING

HELD DOWN BY THESE PYGMIES.

TIME TO PRAY.

LOTS OF PRAYER, AND SOME

ACTION IN THE NEXT

ELECTIONS.

THERE IS SOMETHING BAD GOING

ON AND OUR NEIGHBOR

DECIDED -- WE'VE GOT A HUGE

AUDIENCE IN BRAZIL, AND NOW

WE'VE GOT SOME BAD NEWS

COMING OUT OF BRAZIL.

THAT'S RIGHT.

CHILD SEX PROSTITUTION IN

BRAZIL HAS BEEN ON THE RISE

FOR YEARS.

THE LONDON GUARDIAN

NEWSPAPER REPORTS THAT

OFFICIALS FEAR AN EXPLOSION

OF CHILD SEX WORKERS BEFORE

THE WORLD CUP SOCCER MATCH

NEXT YEAR.

THE NUMBER OF SEX WORKERS

REACHED ABOUT HALF A MILLION

IN 2012, UP FROM 100,000 IN

2001.

OFFICIALS SAY THEY'LL TRY TO

FIGHT IT IN BRAZIL, BUT THEY

ADMIT THEY HAVE THEIR WORK

CUT OUT FOR THEM.

HERE AT HOME, ALMOST 70% OF

THE COUNTRY IS COVERED IN

SNOW TODAY.

THAT'S THE MOST THIS EARLY

IN THE SEASON IN MORE THAN A

DECADE.

AND WHILE THE SNOWSTORM THAT

HAS HAMMERED MUCH OF THE

NORTHEAST IS FINALLY LETTING

UP, FORECASTERS WARN DON'T

EXPECT THE FREEZING

TEMPERATURES TO DISAPPEAR

ANY TIME SOON.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: MOST OF THE

NORTHEAST IS WAKING UP TO A

SLUSHY MESS TODAY.

TUESDAY'S STORM DUMPED AS

MUCH OF SEVEN INCHES OF SNOW

IN AREAS FROM VIRGINIA TO

NEW ENGLAND.

I WORKED FOR 35 YEARS IN

THE SNOW.

AT THE AIRPORT.

IT WAS HORRIBLE.

Reporter: IN

WASHINGTON, D.C., SCHOOLS,

GOVERNMENT OFFICES, AND MANY

BUSINESSES SHUT DOWN FOR THE

DAY.

WHILE THEY'RE BACK UP AND

RUNNING TODAY, MANY

TRAVELLERS ARE STILL TRYING

TO GET HOME.

AFTER FLIGHT DELAYS IN

SEVERAL MAJOR AIRPORTS ON

THE EAST COAST.

I'M REALLY UPSET BECAUSE,

REALLY, I DON'T KNOW WHEN

I'M GOING TO LEAVE HERE.

PEOPLE ARE GENERALLY

ANGRY AND A LITTLE

FRUSTRATED, NOT KNOWING WHAT

IS GOING TO HAPPEN.

Reporter: AND THE ROADS

AREN'T MUCH BETTER.

OVERNIGHT, COLD TEMPERATURES

CAUSED MANY TO RA FREEZE

FREEZE OVER AGAIN, MAKING

FOR DANGEROUS COMMUTES.

AND DANGEROUS CONDITIONS OUT

WEST LED TO A

SEARCH-AND-RESCUE MISSION IN

NEVADA.

A FAMILY WAS STRANDED IN SUB

ZERO TEMPERATURES FOR 48

HOURS AFTER THEIR CAR

FLIPPED IN THE SNOW.

RESCUE TEAMS SAY THEY BUILT

A FIRE TO STAY WARM UNTIL

HELP ARRIVED.

WE'RE ALL GREAT, WARM,

AND ALL OF THE KIDS ARE IN

GOOD SPIRITS.

MOM AND DAD WERE HAPPY TO

SEE US.

Reporter: FORECASTERS

ACROSS THE COUNTRY WARN

DRIVERS TO BE CAREFUL ON THE

ROS, AND IF POSSIBLE, TO

STAY HOME UNTIL THEIR

CLEARED.

NOW THE FOCUS SHIFTS TO THE

EXTREME COLD IT IS LEAVING

BEHIND.

FORECASTERS WARN THAT IN

SOME AREAS OVER THE NEXT FEW

DAYS, TEMPERATURES WILL DROP

INTO THE SINGLE DIGITS.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

PAT, ARE YOU STILL

CAMPAIGNING FOR PEOPLE TO

MOVE TO VIRGINIA BEACH TO

ESCAPE THIS WINTER MESS?

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

WE'RE IN A POCKET OF WARMTH

AND JOY AND DELIGHT DOWN

HERE.

Wendy: EXCUSE ME, I HAD

ICE COVERING MY CAR THIS

MORNING.

Pat: THE CHAMBER OF

COMMERCE DIDN'T AUTHORIZE

THAT STATEMENT.

Wendy: IT TOOK ME 10

MINUTES TO GET THE ICE OFF

MY WINDOW.

THE SNOW, I KNOW IT CAUSES A

LOT OF PROBLEMS FOR

TRAVELLERS, BUT IT IS SO

BEAUTIFUL.

AND BECAUSE WE'RE A FEW

HOURS SOUTH, WE DON'T GET

IT.

Pat: THE GULF STREAM

SWINGS IN HERE, AND THE GULF

STREAM COMES UP, AND RIGHT

WHERE WE ARE, IT IS WARMER

THAN USUAL.

BUT IT CAN ALSO BE MISERABLY

COLD WHEN IT GETS COLD.

AND THE PEOPLE HERE DON'T

REALLY KNOW HOW TO DRIVE IN

THE SNOW.

SO IT IS DANGEROUS.

WHERE I GREW UP, YOU TOOK IT

FOR GRANTED.

YOU DROVE IN SNOW ALL YEAR

AROUND.

Wendy: I LOVE SNOW.

COMING UP, THE CAMPAIGN THAT

IS SAVING FAMILIES AND

HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS IN

TAXPAYER DOLLARS.

I SAID, THE BEST GIFT

YOU'RE GOING TO GIVE EACH

OTHER IS TO COME THROUGH

THIS COUNSELLING.

Wendy: HEAR HOW ONE

GROUP IS WORKING TO

DIVORCE-PROOF MARRIAGES,

NEXT.

Pat: THERE IS A

STATEMENT IN THE BOOK OF

MALACHI WHERE GOD IS

SPEAKING, AND HE SAY HE

SAYS I HATE DIVORCE.

GOD IS SPEAKING, I HATE

DIVORCE.

AND DIVORCE TAKES A TERRIBLE

TOLL ON THE FAMILY INVOLVED

IN IT.

BUT IT ALSO DOES SERIOUS

DAMAGE IN OTHER WAYS, BY

PUTTING MORE PEOPLE ON

WELFARE.

OR DRIVING UP THE CRIME

RATE.

SO AS PAUL STRAND REPORTS,

SOME PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO

STOP THIS DAMAGE BY

ATTACKING DIVORCE HEAD-ON.

HERE IS PAUL.

Reporter: SURVIVING ONE

DIVORCE DROVE BROOK WILSON

TO ENSURE IT WOULD NEVER

HAPPEN TO HER OR HER

DAUGHTERS AGAIN.

YOU THINK, OH, I LOVE HIM

SO MUCH.

AND THEN AFTER THE FIRST SIX

MONTHS, EVERYBODY GETS

COMFORTABLE AND EVERYBODY

BECOMES THEMSELVES.

Reporter: SHE GOT HELP

FROM HER PASTOR IN A PROGRAM

CALLED "MARRIAGE SAVERS,"

THAT HE FELT COULD GUARANTEE

BROOK AND HER NEW MAN,

JAMES, WOULD NEVER DIVORCE.

THE PEOPLE GOING THROUGH

THIS PROGRAM, 98% WERE STILL

MARRIED, AND THAT CAUGHT MY

ATTENTION.

IT IS JUST LIKE A JOB.

THERE WERE A LOT OF

THINGS WE PROBABLY WOULDN'T

HAVE TALKED ABOUT UNLESS WE

GOT THIS TRAINING.

Reporter: THIS FALL THE

MAN WHO CREATED THIS PROGRAM

CAME TO THIS STATE.

KENTUCKY HAS THE THIRD

HIGHEST DIVORCE RATE IN THE

UNITED STATES.

Reporter: ABOUT 65 OUT

OF 100 MARRIAGES GO BELLY-UP

HERE.

WE HAVE JUST LET MARRIAGE

SLIDE AS AN AMERICA

CULTURE.

WE BELIEVE THAT THE

CHURCH CAN TURN IT AROUND,

IF THE PASTORS, IN FACT,

WILL ROLL UP THEIR SLEEVES

AND MAKE MARRIAGE A PRIORITY

IN EACH CONGREGATION.

Reporter: BUT HE

BROUGHT PROOF THAT IF

KENTUCKY'S CHURCHES PLEDGE

T TO ONLY MARRY COUPLES WHO

GET COUNSELLING, THEY COULD

SIGNIFICANTLY CUT THE

DIVORCE RATE.

Reporter: DIVORCE HAS

BECOME SO COMMON, PEOPLE

ACCEPT IT AS A FACT OF

LIFE.

BUT RESEARCH SHOWS WITH A

FEW STEPS, ANY MARRIAGE CAN

BE MADE INTO A PERMANENT

ONE.

THEY PROVED THE METHOD

WORKS.

OF THE 23 230 COUPLES

WHO DID MARRY, WE ONLY KNOW

OF 16 DIVORCES.

THAT'S MARRIAGE INSURANCE.

Reporter: DAVID AND

PENNY HAVE HELPED MARRIAGES

FOR DECADES.

WE'VE DONE ABOUT 140

COUPLES, AND SO WE HAVE SOME

EXPERIENCE AT THIS.

WE HAVE SEEN NOTHING BUT

GOOD, POSITIVE THINGS COME

FROM IT.

Reporter: PENNY SAYS

OLDER FOLKS IN THE PEWS NEED

TO STEP UP AND GUIDE THE

YOUNGER ONES.

THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN

MARRIED A WHILE, WHO HAVE

GONE THROUGH SOME

EXPERIENCES, AND CAN HELP

THESE COUPLES AND PRAY WITH

THEM AND SUPPORT THEM.

YOU'RE INVESTING IN YOUR

ETERNITY BECAUSE YOU WILL

HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO HELP

THEM WITH STRUGGLES AND LEAD

THEM BACK TO CHRIST.

YOU'RE NOT ALWAYS GOING TO

BE THERE.

AFTER A WHILE THEY'LL STOP

COMING TO US, BUT CHRIST

WILL ALSO BE THERE FOR

THEM.

AS MENTORS, YOU WILL BE

SO BLESSED BY THIS.

IT IS AN OUTREACH

OPPORTUNITY.

IT IS A DIFFERENT WAY TO

COUNSEL COUPLES.

Reporter: IT VIRTUALLY

DIVORCED THE TWO DOZEN

ENGAGED COUPLES IN AFTER

CARE.

TO THE BEST OF MY

KNOWLEDGE, NONE OF THOSE

WERE MARRIED SINCE WE'VE

BEEN DOING THIS PROGRAM,

HAVE GOTTEN A DIVORCE.

I SAY TO THE COUPLES, THE

BEST GIFT YOU'RE GOING TO

GIVE IS TO GO THROUGH THIS

COUNSELLING.

THEY'VE BEEN THERE AND

DONE THAT.

THEY CAN HELP PUSH YOU ALONG

TO THE RIGHT PATH.

Reporter: BUT MCMANNIS

SAYS A SUCCESSFUL MARRIAGE

DOESN'T JUST BENEFIT THE

COUPLES, BUT THE WHOLE

COMMUNITY AND THE ENTIRE

STATE.

A COMMUNITY WITH A HIGH

DIVORCE RATE IS LESS

ATTRACTIVE TO BUSINESSES.

BUT ONE THAT CAN DRIVE

DIVORCE --

IT BECOMES A MORE

ATTRACTIVE PLACE FOR

COMPANIES TO INVEST BECAUSE

THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE LESS

PROBLEMS WITH THEIR

EMPLOYEES THAN THEY WOULD IN

SOME OTHER CITY.

Reporter: AND CHILDREN

OF DIVORCE COMMIT MORE

CRIME.

SO IF A COMMUNITY'S DIVORCE

RATE GOES DOWN, ITS CRIME

RATE CAN DROP AS WELL.

AND, FINALLY, THE DIVORCE

OFTEN DRIVES THE EX-WIFE AND

KIDS ON WELFARE.

IN KENTUCKY, 24,000 NEW

DIVORCES A YEAR COST

TAXPAYERS A FORTUNE.

EACH YEAR IT ADDS

$600 MILLION OF COSTS TO THE

TAXPAYERS.

Reporter: SO FEWER

DIVORCES MEANS HUGE

SAVINGS.

MAYBE IT IS TIME FOR THEM TO

ALL GET TOGETHER AND FIGHT

STATEWIDE FOR LASTING

MARRIAGES.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS,

REPORTING FROM LEXINGTON,

KENTUCKY.

Pat: THAT'S A BRILLIANT

IDEA, IT REALLY IS.

BECAUSE MARRIAGE IS THE

FOUNDATION OF OUR SOCIETY.

STABLE HOMES WITH CHILDREN

WHO WERE BROUGHT UP IN THE

NURTURE AND ADMONITION OF

THE LORD.

CHILDREN WHO ARE TAUGHT

RESPECT AND DECENCY AND

HONOR.

IF THEY'VE GOT THE RIGHT

KIND OF PARENTS, THEY LEARN

IT, IN A SENSE, BY OSMOSIS.

THEY GROW UP ACCEPTING THESE

THINGS, AND THEY LIVE THEM

OUT IN THEIR MARRIAGES.

IT IS HARD TO REMEMBER WHAT

THINGS WILL BE LIKE WHEN

YOU'RE 20.

Wendy: I WAS SURPRISED

KENTUCKY HAS SUCH A HIGH

DIVORCE RATE.

I WOULD THINK IT WOULD BE

SOME PLACE LIKE NEVADA.

Pat: I THINK, IF YOU

EVER WATCH SOME OF THE

REALITY SHOWS WITH SOME OF

THE PARTICIPANTS, YOU SAY

THEY'RE DEALING WITH PEOPLE

WHO ARE NOT TERRIBLY

WELL-EDUCATED, AND THEY COME

FROM STRANGE BACKGROUNDS,

WHERE THERE IS A LOT OF

DRINKING AND JOBLESSNESS AND

ALL OF THE REST OF IT.

Wendy: SURE.

Pat: AND SO THEY DON'T

HAVE A SENSE OF STABILITY TO

START WITH.

BUT I WOULDN'T -- KENTUCKY

PEOPLE ARE VERY

SOPHISTICATED.

THEY'VE GOT ALL OF THE

BEAUTIFUL HORSE FARMS IN

KENTUCKY.

BUT THERE IS A LOT OF A AP

APPALACHIA OUT THERE, TOO.

HOW ABOUT WEST VIRGINIA?

DO THEY HAVE A HIGH DIVORCE

RATE?

Wendy: I THINK -- I

DON'T KNOW.

I'LL HAVE TO CHECK.

BUT I WOULDN'T BE SURPRISED

IF IT IS RIGHT THERE, NEAR

KENTUCKY'S.

Pat: WELL, WE'VE GOT

THIS NO-FAULT DIVORCE, AND

IT HAS BEEN DEVASTATING IN

THE LIVES OF PEOPLE.

IT USED TO BE YOU HAD TO

PROVE ADULTERY OR SOME

SERIOUS GROUND TO GET

DIVORCED.

NOW IT IS SO EASY.

NO FAULT.

Wendy: UP NEXT, DESIGN

TIPS FROM THE MAN WHO DECKED

THE HALLS IN AMERICA'S

SECOND MOST FAMOUS WHITE

HOUSE.

WE'LL TOUR THE GREENBRIAR

WITH CARLTON BARNEY, NEXT.

Pat: WELL, CHRISTMAS

AND DECK THE HALLS WITH ALL

OF THAT KIND OF STUFF, BOUGH

S OF HOLLY AND YULE LOGS.

WE'RE ADORNED WITH COLOR.

WITH A NAME LIKE THE

GREENBRIAR IN A TOWN CALLED

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, A

PLACE KNOWN AS AMERICA'S

RESORT, HAS COLOR IN ITS

D.N.A.

SO WHEN THIS FIVE-STAR

DESTINATION NEEDS TO GET

READY FOR THE HOLIDAYS,

GUESS WHAT?

IT CALLED ON MR. COLOR

HIMSELF.

ONCE THERE WAS A GRAND

WHITE HOUSE.

NO, NOT THE ONE YOU THINK.

THIS ONE WAS TUCKED AWAY IN

THE BEAUTIFUL MOUNTAINS OF

WEST VIRGINIA.

BUT THE WHIT WHITE HOUSE

NEEDED SOMETHING.

H'MMM, WHAT WOULD MAKE

PEOPLE WANT TO COME HERE,

STAY HERE, MAKE MEMORIES

HERE?

THIS WHITE HOUSE NEEDED

COLOR.

MR. COLOR COULD MAKE THAT

HAPPEN.

I'M HERE WITH MR. COLOR

HIMSELF, CARLTON BARNEY.

AND I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE THE

INSIDE OF THIS SPECTACULAR

HOTEL.

I'M DELIGHTED TO HAVE YOU

HERE IN THE HILLS OF WEST

VIRGINIA, AT THE GREENBRIAR

RESORT, WHICH IS AMERICA'S

RESORT.

I'M GOING TO SHOW YOU ALL OF

THE WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS

TREES WE DO, AND ALL OF THE

WONDERFUL SPIRIT.

AND ALL OF YOU OUT THERE IN

AMERICA CAN COME AND SEE FOR

YOURSELF HOW GREAT THIS

PLACE IS.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

LET'S GO.

THIS BEAUTIFUL BUILDING

WITH THE COLUMNS, IT IS LIKE

THE WHITE HOUSE.

IT LOOKS LIKE THE WHITE

HOUSE, EXCEPT WE HAVE ROOMS

IN IT.

WE HAVE 80 800 ROOMS AND

COTTAGES AND AN ART COLONY

IN IT.

IT HAS A STYLE ALL ITS OWN.

Wendy: CARLTON, MANY,

MANY FAMOUS PEOPLE HAVE

STAYED HERE AS THE

GREENBRIAR OVER THE YEARS.

YES.

Wendy: CAN YOU NAME A

FEW?

THERE ARE SO MANY.

WHEN GRACE CAME HERE WITH

THE CHILDREN, WHEN THEY WERE

SMALL, WE DID THEIR STATE

SUITE HERE.

AND JUDY GARLAND HAS BEEN

HERE, AND 26 PRESIDENT'S

HAVE BEEN HERE.

AND GANDHI RICE.

AND TOM CRUZ COMES WITH HIS

LITTLE DAUGHTER, SURI.

Wendy: I HAVE TO ASK

YOU, HOW DID YOU GET THE

NICKNAME MR. COLOR?

MR. COLOR I GOT BECAUSE I

DON'T LIKE ANYTHING THAT

LOOKS LIKE -- LET'S SAY LIKE

OATMEAL.

I THINK COLOR IS THE MOST

IMPORTANT THING IN

DECORATING.

AND I THINK COLOR CHANGES

MOODS.

I THINK IF YOU TAKE A ROOM

AND I PAINT THE ROOM BRIGHT

RED AND THEN I CAN CHANGE IT

AND PAINT IT LIGHT BLUE,

EVERYTHING SAYS A DIFFERENT

MOOD.

I THINK I WAS BORN WITH THE

ABILITY TO SEE COLOR LIKE

MANY PEOPLE DON'T SEE IT.

AND I DON'T BELIEVE THAT

THERE IS GOOD TASTE OR BAD

TASTE.

I ONLY BELIEVE THAT THERE IS

TASTE.

I REALLY WANT PEOPLE TO HAVE

THE EXPERIENCE OF LIVING A

WONDERFUL LIFE, AND BEING

SURROUNDED BY BEAUTIFUL

COLOR.

AND THIS HOTEL REPRESENTS

THAT FEELING OF HOW YOU CAN

MAKE HAPPY IN YOUR LIFE.

Wendy: IS THAT

SOMETHING THAT AS A

DECORATOR -- IS

CHRISTMASTIME SOMETHING THAT

YOU LOOK FORWARD TO EVERY

YEAR?

WELL, I'VE ALWAYS

THOUGHT -- YOU LOOK AT TWO

PACKAGES.

ONE PACKAGE THAT WAS ALL

BROWN, WITH BROWN WRAPPING

PAPER, TIED IN STRING.

AND THEN YOU HAD A PACKAGE

THAT WAS WRAPPED IN GREEN

AND WHITE, WITH BIG RED

BOWS.

WHICH ONE WOULD YOU WANT?

ARE YOU READY TO GO FOR A

TOUR OF ALL OF THE CHRISTMAS

TREES WITH ME?

I'LL TAKE YOU AROUND.

Wendy: I WOULD LOVE

TO.

CARLTON, IT IS SO AMAZING AT

THE GREE GREENBRIAR DURING

CHRISTMAS.

THE LIGHTS OUTSIDE ARE

SPECTACULAR.

AND YOU WALK INSIDE, AND IT

IS EVEN BETTER.

A BEAUTIFUL CHRISTMAS TREE

IN ALMOST EVERY ROOM.

I LOVE TO HEAR YOU SAY

THAT.

EVERYBODY THINKS THAT

CHRISTMAS IS GREEN AND RED,

BUT A CHRISTMAS TREE NEED

NOT BE ONLY GREEN AND RED.

WE ARE USING TODAY SOME

BEAUTIFUL CANDIED POPCORN

BALLS THAT WE MADE HERE.

AND WE COLORED OUR TREE TO

MATCH THE LOBBY.

AND THESE YOUNG GIRLS ARE

HELPING US DECORATE WITH

ORNAMENTS THAT YOU CAN EAT.

SO WHEN YOU'RE DECORATING AT

HOME, DON'T THINK YOU HAVE

TO ONLY GO OUT AND BUY

ORNAMENTS TO HANG ON YOUR

TREE.

YOU CAN ACTUALLY MAKE THEM

IN YOUR KITCHEN.

THINK OF YOUR FAVORITE

COLORS, AND BRING THEM INTO

YOUR HOME AND MAKE THE TREE

YOU.

Wendy: I LOVE IT.

GREAT IDEA.

AND WE'RE GOING TO GO ON

TO OUR NEXT TREE, AND THAT

TREE IS GOING TO BE

PATRIOTIC TREE.

Wendy: LET'S GO.

OKAY.

THIS TREE IS MADE FOR THE

AMERICAN SOLDIER AND THE

HISTORY OF AMERICA AND THE

RESPECT WE HAVE FOR A FLAG.

THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT,

COHESIVE KIND OF THING.

AND WE ALWAYS DO THAT IN THE

HOTEL BECAUSE THESE

PATRIOTIC TREES ARE IN HONOR

OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO HAVE

SERVED OUR COUNTRY.

Wendy: EVERY TIME I

PASS THIS TREE, I JUST WANT

TO SALUTE AND SAY THANK

YOU.

YES.

DO THAT.

Wendy: THANK YOU.

AND THERE ARE SO MANY

OTHER BEAUTIFUL TREES, AND

I'M GOING TO TAKE YOU TO SEE

STILL ANOTHER.

Wendy: OKAY.

GREAT, LET'S GO.

WELL, CARLTON, WE'RE HERE IN

FRONT OF ANOTHER GORGEOUS

TREE IN THE MAIN LOBBY OF

THE GREENBRIAR.

THIS ONE IS 16 FEET CALL.

AND YOU CALL IT THE ROYAL

TREE.

I CALL

IT THE ROYAL TREE,

YES.

AND I'LL TELL YOU WHY.

BECAUSE IT IS DESIGNED AND

DECORATED WITH ROYAL

COLORS.

NOW, MANY YEARS AGO, WHEN I

WAS JIMMY CARTER'S DECORATOR

IN THE WHITE HOUSE, I DID A

CHRISTMAS EVENT AT THE WHITE

HOUSE.

AND THE HONOREE WAS MARGARET

THATCHER.

THE ENGLISH LOVE THEIR

PURPLE, AND THE ENGLISH LOVE

THEIR ROYAL BLUE, LIKE THE

BRITANNIA, AND THEY LOVE

THEIR RED AND THEY LOVE

THEIR PINK.

YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER, LADY

THATCHER WAS NOT IN THE

ROYAL PART OF THE WORLD, AS

BEING A ROYAL HERSELF.

BUT I

WANTED

TO USE ALL OF

THE SPIRIT OF ENGLAND.

SO LET'S GO TO THE

PRESIDENTIAL SUITE.

AND THIS IS A HISTORY, AND

IT IS ABOUT CASTLES.

YOU KNOW THERE ARE CERTAINLY

CERTAIN THINGS.

AND I DESIGNED A SCARF, AND

IT IS LINED WITH THESE

BEAUTIFUL THINGS.

Wendy: GOLDEN TASSLES.

YES, GOLDEN CASTLES.

BUT THE DECORATIONS ON THIS

TREE, THESE ARE ALSO GOLDEN

CASTLES.

AND WE ALSO HAVE STRINGS OF

PEARLS.

YOU CAN GO RIGHT TO YOUR

JUNK JEWELRY BOX, AND YOU

CAN TAKE OLD BROACHES.

Wendy: CARLTON, THANK

YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS

WONDERFUL, FASCINATING AND

VERY UNIQUE TOUR OF THE

GREENBRIAR HOTEL.

I'LL TELL YOU WHAT, I'M

DEFINITELY IN THE MOOD FOR

CHRISTMAS NOW.

THANK YOU.

Pat: WENDY, THAT WAS

FUN.

Wendy: THAT WAS FUN,

RELIVING THAT.

WE GOT TO DO SO MUCH MORE.

HE IS JUST AMAZING.

Pat: HE DID A SHOW WITH

US.

WE FINALLY FOUND THE TAPES,

I THINK, OF WHAT HE DID.

HE INTERVIEWED SOME FABULOUS

PEOPLE AND WENT TO THEIR

HOMES.

IT REALLY WAS QUITE A

PRODUCTION.

WE HAVE THAT IN THE

ARCHIVES, SO WE CAN BRING IT

BACK.

CARLTON BARNEY.

STILL AHEAD, MR. COLOR IS

GOING TOB I TO BE IN THE

STUDIO WITH US.

AND MAYBE HE'LL HAVE

DECORATING SUGGESTIONS.

WE NEED HELP, CARLTON.

SO WE'LL MEET THE DECORATING

GIANT WHEN WE COME BACK.

WELCOME TO WASHINGTON FOR

THIS CBN NEWS BREAK.

A NATIVITY DISPLAY AT SOUTH

CAROLINA SHAW AIR FORCE BASE

WAS QUICKLY REMOVED AFTER

COMPLAINTS FROM A AN ATHEIST

ORGANIZATION.

VOLUNTEERS FROM THE BASE

CHAPEL SET UP THE DISPLAY.

BUT LESS THAN THREE HOURS

AFTER THE MILITARY RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM FOUNDATION LAUNCHED

A COMPLAINT, THE DISPLAY WAS

REMOVED.

AN AIR FORCE SPOKES WOMEN

SAYS OFFICIALS ARE TRYING TO

DETERMINE THE PROPER

PLACEMENT AND ARRANGEMENT OF

A NEW DISPLAY THAT REFLECTS

MORE THAN A SINGLE GROUP.

GAY SEX IS ILLEGAL IN

INDIA.

THE SUPREME COURT IN THAT

COUNTRY STRUCK DOWN A LAW

THAT WOULD DECRIMINAL LIES

HOMOSEXUALITY.

THE JUDGES SAY ONLY

LAWMAKERS COULD CHANGE THE

LAW THAT MAKES HOMOSEXUALITY

ILLEGAL, NOT THE COURTS.

THE LAW AGAINST

HOMOSEXUALITY DATES BACK TO

THE 1860s.

IN 2009, THE NEW DEHLI HIGH

COURT SAYS THE LAW VIOLATED

FUNDAMENTAL HUMAN RIGHTS.

CONSERVATIVE AND RELIGIOUS

GROUPS ARGUED AGAINST THE

COURT'S RULING WHEN AN

ALLIANCE THAT INCLUDED THE

ALL INDIA LAW GROUPS AND

CHRISTIAN GROUPS AND

CHRISTIAN AND HINDU

LEADERS.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST NEWS BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE AT CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND WENDY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

TOMORROW...CELL PHONES

AND BREAST CANCER.

IT IS RIGHT HERE, SO I

DON'T HAVE TO WEAR A PURSE.

A DEADLY COMBINATION?

WE WANT TO MAKE IT A

NO-PHONE ZONE.

PLUS, CONFESSIONS FROM

MISS KAY YOU WON'T HERE ON

"DUCK DYNASTY."

HE DID DO SOME PHYSICAL

ABUSE.

HOW SHE ALMOST GAVE UP,

AND WHY SHE STOOD BY HER

MAN.

I'M CONVINCED THAT I

WOULD BE DEAD.

TOMORROW ON "THE 700

CLUB."

Pat: WELL, WE'RE COMING

UP TO -- WOULD YOU LIKE SOME

EYE CANDY.

GIVE ME A CAMERA ON THIS,

FOLKS.

THIS IS A PRIVATE

PENTHOUSE.

THIS ISN'T A HOTEL.

I WANT THAT, RIGHT THERE.

IN DALLAS, TEXAS.

Pat: IN DALLAS, TEXAS.

OF A RICH OIL MAN.

I DON'T KNOW WHO THAT IS.

LOOK AT THAT SUCKER.

THIS IS A LIBRARY.

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO GO IN

AND READ YOUR BOOKS IN

THERE.

THIS WAS DE DECORATED BY

CARLTON BARNEY.

THESE ARE PRIVATE HOMES.

THIS IS NOT A HOTEL.

LOOK AT THAT BEDROOM.

YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'RE THE

QUEEN OF SOMETHING OR

ANOTHER IN THAT PLACE.

THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE.

THIS IS ALL IN THIS BOOK,

IT'S EYE CANDY, LIKE

DECORATING IN THE GRAND

MANOR.

IF YOU WANT TO GET YOUR

FUSES BUBBLING, THIS IS THE

ONE.

CARLTON IS HERE WITH US.

AN OLD FRIEND.

GOD BLESS YOU YOU.

WE HAVE SOMETHING IN

COMMON BECAUSE YOU HAD ME AS

A PARTY FOR YOUR DECORATING

LIFE, TOO.

Pat: INDEED.

AND I DID YOUR TELEVISION

SHOW.

WHEN I THINK ABOUT IT, YOU

AND I PUT TOGETHER THE VERY

FIRST HOME DECORATING HOME

30 YEARS AGO, BEFORE HGTV,

AND ANY OF IT.

AND HERE I AM.

Pat: LOOK AT YOU.

I WAS THIN THEN AND

YOUNGER.

Pat: WE ALL WERE

YOUNGER THEN.

LOOK AT THAT TIE.

I ENJOYED DOING THOSE

SHOWS WITH YOU.

Pat: WHO -- YOU DID

SOME CELEBRITY TYPES, TOO.

YOU WENT OUT TO HOLLYWOOD.

YES.

WE DID NORMAN ROCKWELL.

Pat: DO YOU BELIEVE

THAT?

WE DID NORMAN ROCKWELL.

WE DID ETHEL MERMAN, AND WE

DID ALL OF THESE WONDERFUL

THINGS.

Pat: AND THIS WAS THE

FIRST DECORATING SHOW?

I THINK IT WAS THE VERY

FIRST ONE DONE.

AND SINCE THEN THERE IS

HGTV.

AND THEN THERE WAS "LIFE

WITH THE RICH AND FAMOUS,"

AND WE WERE ALREADY DOING

THAT 30 YEARS AGO.

Pat: YOU'RE BRUSH WITH

COLOR -- WHO WERE SOME OF

THE BIG ONES?

YOU HAD FARH DIVA, THE SHAW

OF IRAN?

I DID WORK IN IRAN.

I DID JIMMY CARTER'S WHITE

HOUSE.

I DID HIS BEAUTIFUL LOG

HOUSE AFTER THAT.

I HAVE DONE MARGARET

THATCHER'S THINGS.

I'VE DONE SUPERMARKETS AND

I'VE DONE VICE PRESIDENTS'

HOUSES.

AND I'VE DONE SIMPLE THINGS

AND LITTLE THINGS.

AND I WROTE MY SYNDICATED

NEWSPAPER COLUMN, WHICH I

STILL DO FOR THE PALM BEACH

DAILY NEWS.

I DO THE GRAND HOTEL ON

MACENAR ISLAND.

AND WE HAVE A WONDERFUL NEW

WEBSITE.

WEBSITEwww

WEBSITEwww.CarltonBarney.

Pat:YOU HAVE WONDERFUL

COLORS.

I DO SEE COLOR LIKE SOME

PEOPLE DON'T DO IT.

THESE PEOPLE ON EARTH HAVE A

WONDERFUL GARDENS.

WHAT YOU'VE DONE WITH THIS

CAMPUS IS ASTOUNDING.

AND YOU SEE ALL OF THESE

COLORS AND THEY ALL WORK

TOGETHER.

AND YET WHEN PEOPLE GO

INSIDE, THEY GO VERY MON

TONE.

MONATONE.

AND THEY NEVER CARRY THAT

WONDERFUL FEELING.

Pat: WELL, YOU SPLASH

THESE REDS AND THESE PINKS

AND GREENS -- THERE IS JUST

A RIOT OF COLOR.

NOBODY -- THAT TAKES A LOT

OF GUTS TO PUT THAT KIND OF

STUFF TOGETHER, AND IT

WORKS.

YOU KNOW, TO ME IT IS

LIKE A FANTASY.

Pat: UH-HUH.

I GREW UP IN THE YEARS

WHEN WE HAD THE RADIO.

AND LAMONT CRAN SOSON WOULD

TALK TO ME, AND SO I HAD TO

ENVISION WHAT THEY LOOKED

LIKE.

IT CREATED MY MIND TO BE

ABLE TO MOVE IN A THOUGHT OF

THINKING ABOUT THESE PLACES

I WAS READING ABOUT -- WHAT

WAS IT REALLY LIKE?

IT WASN'T A PICTURE.

IT HAD TO HAPPEN FROM MY

HEAD.

SO THEREFORE I ALWAYS

CREATED IT.

I THINK CHILDREN TODAY ARE

SO LOCKED INTO BEING ABLE TO

SEE SO MANY VISUALS THAT

THEY FORGET THAT THEY HAVE

TO DREAM ABOUT WHAT IT LOOKS

LIKE.

AND I DREAM ROOMS.

YOU KNOW, AND I LOVE

DREAMING ROOMS.

Pat: WELL, THE THINGS

THAT YOU COME UP WITH OUR

ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS.

YOUR COMPANY --

WE ARE THE OLDEST

ESTABLISHED INTERIOR

DESIGNED COMPANY IN

AMERICA.

Pat: DOROTHY DRAPER?

RIGHT.

FOUNDED BY DOROTHY DRAPER,

WHO'S HUSBAND WAY FRANKLIN'S

PRIVATE PHYSICIAN.

Pat: WERE YOU A PROTEGE

OF DOROTHY DRAPER?

I WAS.

Pat: AND YOU TOOK OVER

THE BUSINESS?

I TOOK OVER THE BUSINESS

IN THE '60s.

AND THE GREENBRIAR HOTEL,

FOR WHICH WE HAVE BEEN THE

DECORATORS FOR 65 YEARS, ARE

GIVING A BIRTHDAY PARTY FOR

US IN 2014.

AND I HOPE YOU AND DEE DEE

WILL COME.

IT IS GOING TO BE A

WONDERFUL WEEKEND AND LOTS

OF FUN PEOPLE.

BECAUSE WE'VE BEEN THE

DECORATORS THERE FOR 65

YEARS.

Pat: JIM JUSTICE, HE IS

AN OLD WEST VIRGINIA COACH,

WHO HAS MADE A BILLION

DOLLARS IN THE COAL

BUSINESS.

AND HE BOUGHT THE

GREENBRIAR.

AND HE HAS BOUGHT THE RESORT

OVER HERE IN THE MOUNTAINS.

JIM JUSTICE IS THE BEST

THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO

THE GREENBRIAR.

Pat: REALLY?

THE BEST THING.

BECAUSE MANY HOTELS AND

RESORTS AND SO FORTH ARE

CORPORATELY OWNED.

THEY DON'T HAVE A SOUL AND A

PRINS PEPRINCIPLE THAT

CARES ABOUT EVERYTHING.

AND HE CARES ABOUT EVERY

SINGLE THING IN THAT PLACE.

LIKE WHAT YOU HAVE DONE AT

THE UNIVERSITY.

YOU CARE.

EVERY BUILDING IS

BEAUTIFUL.

THE CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS.

BECAUSE THERE IS A PERSON.

YOU CAN'T BE A CORPORATE

STRUCTURE, NECESSARILY, WITH

BIG -- I MEAN, I WAS THE

SHERATON DESIGNER FOR MANY

YEARS.

AND I KNOW WHAT IT IS TO PUT

FORMULAS TOGETHER.

LIFE ISN'T A FORMULA.

Pat: YEAH.

AND YOUR ENVIRONMENT

ISN'T A FORMULA.

IT IS ALL YOU.

AND YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO

TOUCH THE PIECES AND SAY

WHERE IT CAME FROM.

AND YOU HAVE TO PUT PICTURES

OF YOURSELF AND THE MEMORIES

MEMORIES OF LIFE.

THAT'S WHAT IT IS.

ALL LIFE GIVES YOU

MEMORIES.

Pat: JIM JUSTICE HAS

PLENTY OF MEMORIES.

HE IS A VERY NICE MAN.

AND THE SAME THING WITH

THE GRAND HOTEL, WHICH I

DEDICATED THIS BOOK TO

MR. MUSSA, WHO I WORKED WITH

FOR 30-ODD YEARS THERE.

AND SO THIS BOOK IS NOT

ABOUT -- IT IS ABOUT HOW YOU

CAN TAKE LITTLE ELEMENTS OF

LIFE AND MAKE A LITTLE BIT

OF BLAM GLAMOUR IN YOUR

HOME.

YOU KNOW, I ONCE WONDERED

WHY IT WAS THAT DOROTHY

DRAPER BECAME SUCH A BIG

ICON IN AMERICAN DESIGN.

IT WASN'T BECAUSE OF THE

DECORATION.

IT IS BECAUSE SHE CREATED A

LOOK.

LIKE FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT

CREATED A LOOK.

THERE IS A LOOK TO IT.

I WAS IN A HOTEL THAT I WAS

IN YESTERDAY, AND WHITE HAS

THE ABILITY TO PUT TOGETHER

A LOOK THAT IS HER LOOK AND

A PERSONAL LOOK THAT

RADIATES TO THIS AREA OF THE

COUNTRY.

AND PEOPLE COME HERE BECAUSE

THEY WANT THAT KIND OF A

THING.

THEY GO TO THE GREENBRIAR

BECAUSE THEY WANT THAT

MAGIC.

THE LAST THING YOU WANT TO

DO IS, I ALWAYS SAID --

PEOPLE SAY, WELL, COME TO

OUR HOTEL AND WE'LL MAKE YOU

FEEL AT HOME.

THE LAST THING YOU WANT IN

GOING TO A RESORT IS TO FEEL

LIKE YOU'RE GOING HOME.

YOU WANT MAGIC.

YOU WANT COLOR.

YOU WANT GLAMOUR.

Pat: LET ME PUT THIS ON

THE SCREEN.

WHAT IS THIS, CARLTON?

THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL WALL

COVERING THAT WAS CREATED IN

MY OFFICE.

AND

THIS IS A ROOM AT THE

GRAND HOTEL.

Pat: WOW!

AND YOU CAN PICK THAT UP

ON Www.Carlton

WWW.CARLTONBARNEY.COM.

Pat: MR. DIRECTOR, GIVE

ME THIS.

WHAT IS ALL OF THAT BLUE AND

SQUARES AND RED --

WHY DO YOU THINK PEOPLE

LOVE CHRISTMASTIME?

IT'S COLOR.

IT'S MAGIC.

IT'S SNOWFLAKES, IT'S GOLD,

IT IS SLEIGH BELLS.

IT IS HAPPY.

Pat: MAN, YOU ARE ONE

HAPPY DECORATOR.

I CAN SEE WHY PEOPLE LOVE

YOU.

WE LOVE YOU.

MY SON --

AND I LOVE YOU, TOO.

I LOVE YOU, TOO, PAT.

I LOVE DEE DEE, TOO.

I LOVE YOU FOR ALL YOU HAVE

MEANT IN MY CAREER.

Pat: WHAT IS ON THAT

TIE?

IT IS A SANTA CHRISTMAS.

I DID A DESIGN FOR THE

ISLANDS.

IT IS SANTA ON A SLEIGH

BOAT.

Pat: ON A SLEIGH BOAT.

YOU DESIGNED THAT?

YES, I DID.

I HAVE ALL KINDS OF SCARVES

THAT I MAKE INTO TIES, IT'S

MY SYMBOL.

AND

THE RED SOCKS I WEAR FOR

VA

N JOHNSON.

Pat:

OKAY.

CAN SOMEBODY

GET THIS

BOOK

IF THEY WANT IT?

YES,

THEY

CAN.

YOU CAN GET IT AT WWW

WWW.CARLTONBARNEY.COM.

Pat: DECORATING IN A

GRAND MANOR.

CARLTON HELPED US GET SOME

CARPET.

WE WERE GETTING -- YOU SAID

YOU CAN GET SOME IN IRELAND

THAT WEARS LIKE CRAZY AND IT

IS CHEAPER, AND IT IS

BEAUTIFUL.

I KNOW YOU DO.

I SAW, BEING IN THE HOTEL,

THE TOUCHES THAT YOU'VE DONE

THERE.

IT'S SO GREAT.

Pat: I WAS TRYING TO

GET A NAME, AND WE'VE GOT

THE MARTHA WASHINGTON AND

THE MARTHA JEFFERSON AND THE

GEORGE WASHINGTON AND THE

THOMAS JEFFERSON, AND THE

PATRICK

HENRY, AND THEY'VE

ALL GOT NAMES.

I SAID, I WANT TO NAME IT.

AND SO I SAID TO DEE DEE,

LET'S NAME IT AFTER ALL OF

THEM.

AND SO WE'VE GOT PICTURES OF

ALL THESE MEN.

AND IT'S A WONDERFUL

EXPERIENCE TO BE THERE.

I WANT YOU TO COME TO THE

GREENBRIAR ON

JANUARY 24th, 25th AND

26th FOR THE DOROTHY

DRAPER BIRTHDAY.

Pat: I WILL GIVE IT MY

BEST SHOT.

TO THINK WE HAD THE FIRST

DECORATING SHOW --

WE REALLY DID.

YOU REALLY DID.

WE TOOK PEOPLE INTERESTING

PLACES.

WE DID 65 SHOWS EVERY 13

WEEKS.

IT WAS SOMETHING.

AND THAT WAS, WHAT, 30 YEARS

AGO.

Pat: WHEW!

OH, MAN, HOME AND GARDEN TV,

HEAT YOUR HEART OUT.

WE WERE THERE FIRST.

CARLTON, GOD BLESS YOU.

CARLTON BARNEY, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

WHAT FUN.

THANK YOU.

Wendy: I CAN'T WAIT TO

GO BACK TO THE GREENBRIAR

WITH YOU, CARLTON.

STILL AHEAD, WE'VE GOT YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

HELEN SAYS, "WHEN WAS JESUS

REALLY BORN?

WAS IT ON DECEMBER 25th?"

STAY TUNED FOR ANOTHER ROUND

OF "BRING IT ON," NEXT.

Wendy: THE YEAR IS

COMING TO AN END, AND SO IS

THE DEADLINE FOR MAKING

CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTIONS

THAT YOU CAN REPORT ON THIS

YEAR'S TAX RETURN.

WE WOULD LIKE TO ENCOURAGE

YOU TO GIVE TO CBN.

ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX

DEDUCTIBLE AND GO TO HELPING

SPREAD THE GOSPEL AROUND THE

WORLD.

GIVE US A KATE CALL,

1-800-759-0700.

AND IT'S TIME TO "BRING IT

ON."

Pat:

WHAT FUN WE HAD

WITH CARLTON.

Wendy:

HE IS AMAZING.

Pat: WE HAD

THE FIRST

HOME

DECORATING SHOW ON

TELEVISION IN AMERICA.

Wendy: YOU'RE ALWAYS

BEFORE YOUR TIME, PAT.

Pat: THAT'S WHAT

HAPPENED WHEN YOU'RE A

PIONEER.

I'M GLAD SOME OTHERS HAVE

PROFITED FROM WHAT WE DID.

Wendy: HE REALLY BRINGS

HAPPINESS.

HELEN WRITES, "WHAT TIME AND

SEASON WAS JESUS REALLY

BORN?

I HEARD SOMEONE SAY THE ONLY

REASON WE CELEBRATE

CHRISTMAS IN DECEMBER, IS

BECAUSE IT COINCIDES WITH

THE BIRTH OF AN EGYPTIAN

GOD."

Pat: I DON'T BELIEVE

THAT EGYPTIAN GOD THING.

BUT THIS IS THE START OF THE

WINTER SOLSTICE.

THERE WERE CELEBRATIONS IN

EUROPE PRIMARY OF THE WINTER

SOLSTICE.

YOU LEFT FALL AND GOT INTO

WINTER.

WAS JESUS

BORN ON

DECEMBER 25th?

NOBODY KNOWS FOR SURE.

BUT THERE WERE SHEPHERDS OUT

IN THE FIELD, AND IT GETS

COLD OVER THERE.

AND I DON'T KNOW IF THEY'RE

OUT IN THE FIELD OR NOT.

BUT I'VE BEEN THERE.

WE BAPTIZED 59 PEOPLE IN THE

JORDAN RIVER ON CHRISTMAS

DAY.

SO PEOPL

E CAN SAY

ALL THEY

WANT TO SAY ABOUT HOW COLD

IT IS.

IT ISN'T THAT COLD.

Wendy: IT'S

NOT THAT

COLD.

Pat: SO I

T

COULD HAVE

JUST AS EASILY HAVE BEEN

THEN OR NOT.

THE QUESTION IS IF IT MARKS

THE YEAR ONE OR THREE OR

FOUR.

AND SCHOLARS ARE STILL

DEBATING THAT.

I DON'T THINK IT MAKES A

WHOLE LOT OF DIFFERENCE TO

OUR FAITH.

IF HE WAS BORN ON THE 3rd

OR THE 5th OR 25th, IT

REALLY DOESN'T MATTER.

ANITA WRITES, "I HEARD

THAT FREE MASONS WROTE THE

CONSTITUTION.

I THOUGHT THEY WERE GODLY

MEN."

Pat: MANY WERE FREE MAY

MASONS.

MANY OF THE EUROPEAN ROYALTY

WERE MEMBERS OF FREE MASONS,

SO IT WAS A BIG DEAL.

TO SAY THEY WROTE THE

CONSTITUTION, I THINK IS A

STRETCH.

THEY WERE INVOLVED IN

HELPING FOUND THIS COUNTRY.

YOU'LL FIND MASONIC SYMBOLS

IN WASHINGTON.

I'M NOT GOING TO ANSWER THE

QUESTION BECAUSE THERE ARE

SOME THINGS I FEEL ABOUT

FREE MASONRY, BUT SOME OF

THE FOUNDING FATHERS WERE

MEMBERS.

Wendy: "I HAVE A FAMILY

MEMBER WHO IS ALWAYS URGING

PRAYER AND SHE MAKES SUCH A

BIG DEAL ABOUT THE

REQUESTS.

BUT THE REQUESTS ARE

UNSPOKEN.

SHE NEVER SHARES THE PRAYER

NEED.

HOW CAN YOU SHARE PEOPLE'S

PERSONS BURDENS.

IS THERE A SCRIPTURE THAT

ASKS FOR PRAYER FOR UNSPOKEN

REQUESTS?"

Pat: I DON'T KNOW

THAT -- IF IT IS AN UNSPOKEN

REQUEST, HOW CAN YOU JOIN

TOGETHER IN AGREEMENT.

YOU CAN'T DO IT.

I HAVE AN UNCLE, LET'S SAY,

WHO IS DYING OF CANCER.

WOULD YOU PLEASE PRAY FOR

HIM.

OKAY, FINE.

SO WE PRAY TOGETHER.

HOW IS YOUR UNCLE?

HE JUST GOT HEALED.

THAT'S A REASON FOR

REJOICING.

BUT YOU READ IN THE BOOK OF

ACTS, THE CHURCH PRAYED

STRETCHED OUTEDLY FOR HIM.

THEY PRAYED FOR PETER, WHO

WAS IN BONDAGE, AND THEY

PRAYED FOR HIS RELEASE.

I THINK YOU CERTAINLY HAVE

GOT TO KNOW THAT, OTHERWISE

IT IS A VAGUE NOTHING.

WELL, THANK YOU FOR JOINING

US IN THIS EDITION OF "THE

700 CLUB."

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM POWER MINUTE FROM

JEREMIAH: "CALL UNTO ME AND

I WILL ANSWER YOU AND SHOW

YOU GREAT AND MIGHTY THINGS

WHICH YOU DO NOT KNOW."

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
