CRAZY WEATHER.

I KNOW HOW IT IS IN IOWA,

BECAUSE I WAS OUT THERE IN

ONE OF THOSE CAMPAIGN

THINGS, AND I RODE A HORSE

AND IT WAS 102°?

Wendy: IN MAY?

Pat: NO.

IT WAS IN JUNE OR JULY, BUT

IT WAS -60 WINDCHILLS.

Wendy: BUT THEY'VE HAD

FIVE INCHES OF SNOW IN MAY.

WE'RE HAVING CRAZY WEATHER.

Pat: THE SNOW IS OVER,

AND THE SNOW IS STILL ON THE

GROUND.

WE HAVE RECORD-HIGH

TEMPERATURES, AND SOME HAVE

GONE OVER 100°, INCLUDING

IOWA.

Wendy: AND THAT HOT

WEATHER IS BEING FOLLOWED BY

VIOLENT STORMS, WITH HIGH

WINDS, HEAVY RAINS, AND

DANGEROUS HAIL.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: AFTER ONE OF

THE HARSHEST WINTERS ON

RECORD, SPRING IS BRINGING

UNUSUALLY HOT WEATHER, AND

ALONG WITH IT, SOME

DANGEROUS STORMS.

SEVERE WEATHER IS EXPECTED

TODAY THROUGHOUT MINNESOTA

AND THROUGH TEXAS.

FORECASTERS WARN AND SOME

AREAS MULTIPLE SEVERE STORMS

COULD STRIKE, SO RESIDENTS

ARE WARNED TO STAY ALERT,

EVEN AFTER THE FIRST ROUND.

WEDNESDAY, STORMS SWEPT

THROUGH COLORADO, SPAWNING

AT LEAST FIVE TORNADOES,

INCLUDING THIS ONE, WHICH

WAS CAUGHT ON CAMERA NEAR

AKRON.

OTHER PARTS OF COLORADO SAW

WIND GUSTS UP TO 70 MILES AN

HOUR.

HEAVY WINDS NEAR WICHITA,

KANSAS, WERE BLAMED FOR

DERAILING THIS TRAIN.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO

THINK.

I WAS SHOCKED IT WAS STRONG

ENOUGH TO BLOWN THE TRAIN

OVER, UNTIL I LOOKED DOWN

THERE AND SAW IT LAYING ON

ITS SIDE.

Reporter: 30 TRAIN CARS

WERE KNOCKED OFF THE TRACKS

BY THE 90 MILES AN HOUR

WIND.

THIS SEVERE WEATHER COMES ON

THE HEALS OF A RECENT STRING

OF DEVASTATING TORNADOES

ACROSS THE SOUTH.

PRESIDENT OBAMA GOT A

FIRSTHAND LOOK AT THE

DEVASTATION IN ARKANSAS.

15 PEOPLE WERE KILLED IN

THAT STATE ALONE.

President Obama: WHEN

SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAPPENS

TO A WONDERFUL COMMUNITY

LIKE THIS ONE, IT HAPPENS TO

ALL OF US.

Reporter: THE PRESIDENT

PROMISE THE GOVERNMENT WILL

HELP THE VICTIMS REBUILD

THEIR COMMUNITIES.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WE'VE GOT TWO

EMOTIONS.

I THINK ONE OF THE

EMOTIONS -- BE HONEST, YOU

THINK, THANK THE LORD IT

WASN'T ME, I WASN'T IN THE

MIDDLE OF THAT.

YOU THINK THAT.

AND THE OTHER THING IS, HOW

CAN WE HELP THOSE PEOPLE WHO

HAVE BEEN STRICKEN BY THESE

DEVASTATING STORMS.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE MORE AND

MORE AND MORE OF THEM, IT

LOOKS LIKE.

TERRIBLE WEATHER.

WE HAD SOME AWFUL STUFF HERE

A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO.

BIG HAIL STORMS PILING DOWN

ON CARS AND RE RESIDENCES.

THAT'S LIFE AND WE LIVE

THROUGH IT.

THERE IS A PLACE WHERE

STORMS ARE GOING TO BE MORE

AND MORE FREQUENT, AND THAT

IS THE CAPITAL OF THE UNITED

STATES OF AMERICA,

WASHINGTON, D.C.

REPUBLICANS ARE NOW TRYING

TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENED TO

THE I.R.S. TEA PARTY

SCANDAL.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.

Reporter: PAT, HOUSE

REPUBLICANS HAVE VOTED TO

HOLD FORMER I.R.S. OFFICIAL

LOIS LERNER IN CONTEMPT OF

CONGRESS, WITH SIX DEMOCRATS

JOINING THE MAJORITY.

LERNER HAS CONSISTENTLY

REFUSED TO TESTIFY ABOUT HER

ROLE IN THE I.R.S. TEA PARTY

CONTROVERSY.

AND THE HOUSEIS ALSO

CALLING ON THE JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT TO APPOINT A

SPECIAL COUNCIL TO

INVESTIGATE.

COUNCIL IS SPLIT ON THE

ISSUE, WITH CRITICS SAYING

IT IS AN ATTEMPT BY THE

G.O.P. TO STIR UP

CONTROVERSY AGAINST

DEMOCRATS IN AN ELECTION

YEAR.

BUT JOHN BOEHNER SAYS IT IS

TIME FOR THE PEOPLE TO LEARN

THE TRUTH.

AT LEAST 125 PEOPLE ARE DEAD

AFTER GUNMEN OPENED FIRE IN

NORTH NIGERIA.

EXPERTS EXPECT BOKO HARAM

CARRIED OUT THE ATTACK.

SOME SUSPECT 300 PEOPLE DIED

DURING THE MASSACRE, AS THE

TERRORISTS SET FIRE TO HOMES

AND SHOT PEOPLE TRYING TO

FLEE.

BOKO HARAM TRIGGERED

INTERNATIONAL OUTRAGE WHEN

IT KIDNAPPED NEARLY 200

GIRLS IN MID-APRIL.

THE POPULAR CABLE CHANNEL

HGTV HAS PULLED THE PLUG ON

AN UP COMING REAL ESTATE

SERIOUS "FLIP IT FORWARD."

DAVID AND JASON WERE GOING

TO HELP FAMILIES BUY HOMES

THEY THOUGHT THEY NEVER

COULD AFFORD.

THEY LABELLED DAVID AN

ANTI-GAY EXTREMIST BECAUSE

OF HIS ACTIVITIES AGAINST

GAY MARRIAGE.

CBN NEWS PROFILED THE

BUSINESS IN 2012.

WE STARTED BUILDING WHAT

WE ENVISIONED A KINGDOM

SHOULD LOOK LIKE.

WE DIDN'T READ ANY BOOKS.

EVERYTHING WAS FRESH, AND

GOD EXPLODED OUR BUSINESS

BECAUSE WE WANTED TO GLORIFY

HIM.

Reporter: THE

CANCELLATION LED TO A

FIRESTORM ON HGTV PLRMS,

PLATFORMS, WITH SOME

CRITICIZING THE NETWORK AND

SOME PRAISING THEM.

SOME WROTE, YOU THINK THERE

WOULD BE ROOM FOR TWO TWIN

BROTHERS WHO ARE DEDICATED

PROFESSIONALS.

IF OUR FAITH COSTS US A

TELEVISION SHOW, THEN SO BE

IT.

AND THEIR FATHER TOLD THE

NEWS, THE GAY LOBBY IS THE

BIGGEST BULLY IN AMERICA.

Pat: THERE IS NO

QUESTION ABOUT IT.

THAT HOME AND GARDEN

TELEVISION I THOUGHT WAS

TERRIFIC.

AND I WAS HOPING TO BUY A

PIECE OF IT, AND IT HAS

BECOME SO VERY SUCCESSFUL.

I BELIEVE IT IS OWNED BY THE

HERSH ORGANIZATION.

AND I DON'T KNOW THEM AS

ANTI-GAY OR ANYTHING OR

ANTI-CHRISTIAN OR WHATEVER.

BUT THIS STUFF IS NONSENSE.

THE POLITICAL CORRECTNESS IS

JUST STALLING SPEECH.

I WAS READING AN OP ED PIECE

ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING IN

COLLEGES, AND IT IS

APPALLING.

AND IT IS BEING LED BY THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.

BUT THIS WHOLE THING IS

DISGUSTING.

WHAT THEY TRIED TO DO, THAT

GUY ON "DUCK DYNASTY", AND

WHAT THEY'RE TRYING TO DO IN

THIS IS JUST OUTRAGEOUS.

GOOD GRIEF.

ISN'T THERE SUPPOSED TO BE

SOME FREEDOM?

AREN'T WE SUPPOSED TO HAVE

THE FIRST AMENDMENT?

BUT NOT SO.

I READ ALSO TODAY THAT IN

SAUDI ARABIA -- SAUDI

ARABIA, ONE OF

OUR, QUOTE,"ALLIES," THAT A

PERSON WHO HAD A LIBERAL

BLOG, HE DOES AN INTERNET

BLOG, AND HE HAS CRITICIZED

SOME OF THE LEADERS THE

ISLAMIC FAITH OVER THERE.

HE WAS SENTENCED TO A NUMBER

OF YEARS IN PRISON.

AND 1,000 LASHES.

YOU WONDER HOW SOMEBODY

COULD LIVE THROUGH THAT.

THAT'S WHAT THEY CALL

APOSTASY, AND IF YOU DUE TOO

MUCH OF APOSTASY, YOU CAN

GET KILLED.

THERE IS INTOLERANCE IN THIS

WORLD, AND IT IS CRAZY

BECAUSE WE'VE LOST OUR

BOUNDARIES.

THERE WAS A TIME IN AMERICA

THAT WE HAD A CONSENSUS.

THE CONSENSUS WAS BUILT

AROUND THE BIBLE, AND AROUND

OUR CHRISTIAN FAITH.

NOW WE SAY THIS IS

POST-CHRISTIAN AND WE'RE NOT

A CHRISTIAN NATION, AND SO

FORTH, AND WE'RE NOT

EXCEPTIONAL, AND THIS, THAT,

AND THE OTHER.

WE'RE LOSING IT, FOLKS.

IT IS TIME WE GET BACK TO

BASICS.

AND I THINK GOD IS GOING TO

GIVE US SOMETHING IMPORTANT,

AND I THINK WE'VE GOT A

STORY THAT IS GOING TO TELL

YOU ABOUT IT ON THIS SHOW

TODAY.

JOHN?

Reporter: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

SOME CALL IT THE MOST THE

IMPORTANT NEWS STORY THAT

WAS NEVER TOLD.

THE STORY OF POTENTIALLY

THOUSANDS OF BABIES KILLED

OVER THE SPAN OF 30 YEARS BY

ONE MAN, LATE, TERM ABORTION

DOCTOR KERMIT GOSNELL.

RECENTLY I TRAVELLED TO

LOS ANGELES TO TALK TO TWO

PEOPLE WHO ARE TRYING TO

BRING THE UNTOLD STORY TO

LIGHT.

FOR YEARS THE SIGN ON THIS

BUILDING READ "WOMEN'S

MEDICAL SOCIETY."

BUT AFTER LEARNING WHAT WAS

GOING ON INSIDE, IT BECAME

KNOWN AS A HOUSE OF

HORRORS.

THE ABORTION CLINIC OWNER

AND PRACTITIONER, DR. KERMIT

GOSNELL, IS NOW SERVING

THREE LIFE SENTENCES FOR

KILLING BABIES THAT BORN

ALIVE.

LAST MAY A PHILADELPHIA JURY

ALSO FOUND HIM GUILTY OF

KILLING A 41-YEAR-OLD WOMAN

IN A BOTCH ABORTION.

IT IS HERE IN LOS ANGELES,

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE

COUNTRY, WHERE THE NEXT

CHAPTER OF THE STORY IS

UNFOLDING.

ANN AND HER HUSBAND,

PHILLIP, HAVE MADE IT THEIR

MISSION TO MAKE A MOVIE,

EXPOSING THE TRUTH BY KERMIT

GOSNELL.

I THINK THIS IS THE

BIGGEST SERIAL KILLER IN

AMERICAN HISTORY.

AND AMERICANS NEED TO KNOW

WHAT WAS DONE AND HOW IT

HAPPENED AND HOW HE WAS

ALLOWED TO GO ON KILLING FOR

40 YEARS.

Reporter: HE AND HIS

WIFE PLAN TO BRING THE STORY

TO THE SMALL SCREEN SOMETIME

NEXT YEAR.

BUT FIRST THEY NEED TO RAISE

ENOUGH MONEY.

THEY LAUNCHED A CAMPAIGN ON

INDY GO GO.

IT HELPS GET CREATIVE

PROJECTS OFF THE GROUND.

SO FAR THEY'VE RAISED ABOUT

90% OF THEIR $2.1 MILLION

GOAL.

WE FEEL AN ENORMOUS

RESPONSIBILITY TO DO THIS

STORY RIGHT.

WE'RE VERY WORRIED WE'RE NOT

GOING TO MEET THE TOTAL AND

WE'RE EXHAUSTED.

BUT EVERY DAY SOMETHING

HAPPENS THAT MAKES US THINK,

OH, MY GOD, THIS IS

EXTRAORDINARY.

LAST WEEK WE HAD A MAN WHO

TWEETED OUT A PHOTOGRAPH OF

HIS JUST-BORN GRANDDAUGHTER,

AND SAID TO CELEBRATE HER

BIRTH ON THAT DAY, HE SENT

US $100.

Reporter: THEY VIEW

EACH DONATION AS A VOTE,

VOICING OPPOSITION TO WHAT

THEY CALL MEDIA CENSORSHIP.

SAYING THAT THE MEDIA

REFUSED TO COVER THE GOSNELL

STORY.

THE CENSORING CAMPAIGN

CONTINUED WITH KICK STARTER,

THEIR ORIGINAL SOURCE FOR

FUNDING, ASKED HIM TO MAKE

SOME CHANGES.

KICK-STARTER WAS

CONTINUING WITH THE THOUGHT

THAT THE LIGHT WILL NEVER

SHOW THIS PHILADELPHIA

ABORTION CLINIC, WHERE

THOUSANDS WERE MURDERED.

TO THIS DAY, THEY ARE

UNREMEMBERED, AND WE'RE

GOING TO CHANGE ALL OF

THAT.

Reporter: THEIR EFFORTS

ARE GETTING SOME HELP FROM

MAJOR HOLLYWOOD BACKERS,

LIKE KEVIN SORBO, THE STAR

OF THE RECENT FILM "GOD'S

NOT DEAD."

WE WOULD LIKE TO ASK YOU

TO HELP OUR FRIENDS, ANN AND

JEFF, TO MAKE A FILM ABOUT

KERMIT GOSNELL.

THEIR FRIENDS ARE

CELEBRITY PEOPLE, AND KEVIN

HAS THIS VERY SUCCESSFUL

MOVIE.

WE JUST WENT AND ASKED THEM,

AND THEY DIDN'T HESITATE FOR

A MILI SECOND.

Reporter: BUT IF THEY

FAIL TO MEET THEIR GOAL --

ALL OF THE MONEY GOES

BACK TO THE PEOPLE.

IT GOES BACK TO THEIR CREDIT

CARD.

BUT THE FILM DOESN'T GET

MADE, AND KERMIT GOSNELL

FADES INTO OBSCURITY.

AND ALL OF THE PEOPLE WHO

DON'T WANT THE STORY TO BE

MADE WIN.

Reporter: SOMETHING

THEY VOW NOT TO LET HAPPEN.

MORE THAN 400 CHRISTIAN

LEADERS SIGNED A PLEDGE OF

SOLIDARITY SUPPORTING

CHRISTIANS IN THE MIDDLE

EAST.

THEY CAME TOGETHER HERE IN

THE NATION'S CAPITAL FOR THE

EVENT.

A CATHOLIC CARDINAL SAYS THE

CHURCH CANNOT BE SILENT,

ESPECIALLY WHILE SOME OF

CHRISTIANITY'S OLDEST

COMMUNITIES ARE DRIVEN INTO

EXILE OR EVENING

EXTINCTION.

THEY SPECIFICALLY MENTIONED

CHRISTIANS IN EGYPT, IRAQ,

AND SYRIA.

AND A PASTOR IN BAGHDAD SAID

IRAQI CHILDREN ASK HIM, HAS

THE WORLD FORGOTTEN US?

IT IS TIME FOR CHRISTIANS,

ESPECIALLY US IN THE WEST,

TO SPEAK OUT.

Pat: LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, WHAT IS HAPPENING

IN OUR WORLD?

THERE SEEMS TO BE A FAMOUS

POEM, AFTER WORLD WAR I, THE

CENTER CAN'T HOLD.

WHAT IS HOLDING OUR CENTER

TOGETHER?

GOD CAN DO THAT.

THERE IS A TREMENDOUS MOVE

OF GOD TAKING PLACE IN

COUNTRIES LIKE IRAN.

THE PRESIDENT OF HOBBY LOBBY

IS LAUNCHING A CAMPAIGN TO

INTRODUCE BIBLE COURSES IN

THOUSANDS OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS

BY 2017, AS AN ELECTIVE.

STEVE GREEN SAYS HE DOES NOT

WANT TO FORCE CHRISTIANITY

ON ANYONE.

HE IS SIMPLY CONCERNED

AMERICA IS IN DANGER BECAUSE

OF ITS IGNORANCE OF GOD'S

WORD.

THE MUSTANG SCHOOL DISTRICT

IN OKLAHOMA CITY WILL BE THE

FIRST TO INCLUDE THE COURSE

THIS COMING FALL.

MONTANA'S ATTORNEY-GENERAL

SAYS HE SUPPORTS KEEPING A

6-FOOT TALL STATUE OF JESUS

ON FOREST LAND.

ATTORNEY-GENERAL TIM FOX IS

ASKING THE NINTH CIRCUIT

COURT OF APPEALS TO UPHOLD

THE FEDERAL JUDGE'S JANUARY

RULING.

20 MEMBERS OF CONGRESS

SUBMITTED A SEPARATE BRIEF

SUPPORTING THE STATUE.

A DISTRICT JUDGE SAYS THE

JESUS STATUE IS USED MORE

FOR PHOTO OPPORTUNITIES AND

A MEETING POINT THAN FOR

RELIGIOUS REFLECTION.
