THERAT THE SAME TIME KEEP

THEIR JOBS.

THE ANSWER IN OUR SOCIETY

VERY OFTEN IS NO.

Wendy: ONE WEEK AGO

TODAY TWIN BROTHERS DAVID

AND JASON VENOM LOST THEIR

SHOW ON HGTV AFTER

COMPLAINTS ABOUT THEIR

BIBLICAL VIEWS ON MARRIAGE

AND ABORTION.

NOW THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT

THE FALLOUT AND THEIR FAITH,

AND FOR THE FIRST TIME,

WE'RE ALSO HEARING FROM

THEIR WIVES.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: A WEEK AFTER

THE SHOW GOT CUT, THESE

BROTHERS AND BUSINESS OWNERS

ARE STILL MAKING HEADLINES.

INSTEAD OF DEFENDING THEIR

REPUTATION, THEY'RE NOW

USING EACH INTERVIEW TO

SHARE THEIR FAITH.

WE FEEL AS THOUGH GOD

WANTS US TO ACTUALLY STAND

UP, LIFT HIM UP, LIFT UP HIS

STANDARD, SILENCE THIS

BULLY, AND LIFT UP THE

BANNER OF JESUS CHRIST IN

THIS SITUATION.

SO THAT'S OUR GOAL RIGHT

NOW.

Reporter: THEY SAY THAT

BULLY, THE AGENDA FROM SOME

MILITANT GAY GROUPS AND

OTHERS ON THE LEFT, BEARING

DOWN ON AMERICA IN WHAT SOME

DESCRIBE AS A SILENCING WAR

ON RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

HGTV CANCELLED THE SHOW LAST

WEEK, ANNOUNCING ITS

DECISION IN A TWEET AFTER

THE WEBSITE, "RIGHT WING

WATCH" PUBLISHED SOME OF

DAVID'S PAST COMMENTS ON

PRO-LIFE AND PRO-TRADITIONAL

MARRIAGE VIEWS.

IS IT NOW BECOMING A

CULTURAL SIN TO BELIEVE IN

THE BIBLE?

WHERE WE ARE IN TERMS OF

NATIONAL SIN, WHERE WE

APPROVE OF WHAT GOD

DISAPPROVES OF, WHEN WE DO

THAT, IT WILL ULTIMATELY GET

TO THE POINT TO WHERE THAT

SIN WILL BECOME AN AGENDA

THAT NOT ONLY DOMINATES AND

PERMEATES, BUT IT SEEKS TO

ASSASSINATE ANYONE WHO

SPEAKS AGAINST THEM.

Reporter: AND

SURPRISINGLY, THEY BLAME THE

CHURCHES.

JUST IN CHARLOTTE CITY,

WE HAVE 1300 CHUMPS 1300

CHURCHES, YET WE'RE ABORTING

MILLIONS OF BABY BOYS AND

GIRLS, LITTLE IMAGE BEARERS

OF

WE CAN'T JUST KEEP HAVING

CHURCH AND ALLOW THIS TO

HAPPEN AND THINK THE

BLESSING OF GOD IS GOING TO

BE ON OUR NATION.

Reporter: WHILE THEY'VE

ENDURED NASTY CRITICISM,

THEY SAY THEY HAVE ALSO BEEN

ENCOURAGED BY THE SUPPORT

THEY HAVE RECEIVED ONLINE

AND IN PERSON.

BUT THEIR BIGGEST SUPPORTERS

ARE THEIR WIVES, WHO SPOKE

TO CBN NEWS.

Reporter:HAS BEEN

AN INCREDIBLE WEEK.

HOW ARE YOU HOLDING UP?

IT IS REALLY NEAT TO SEE

HOW THE LORD HAS PROVIDED

FOR US.

THERE HAS BEEN SUCH GRACE

OVER US.

A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE REACHED

OUT WITH SUCH SUPPORT AND

LOVE.

Reporter: WHAT IS IT

THAT YOU WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW

ABOUT DAVID, AND WHAT IS IT

YOU WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW

ABOUT JASON?

I WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW HE

HAS A HUGE HEART FOR THE

LORD AND

PEOPLE.

AND YOU'LL SEE HE IS THE

REAL DEAL.

THERE IS NOBODY I RESPECT

MORE THAN JASON, AND I'M SO

THANKFUL FOR THE MAN OF GOD

THAT HE IS, AND I'M SO

THANKFUL FOR THE HUSBAND AND

THE FATHER HE HAS BECOME.

Reporter: THE WIVES AND

THEIR HUSBANDS HAVE BEEN

SURPRISED AT THE SUPPORT

THEY HAVE GOTTEN FROM PEOPLE

ACROSS THE POLITICAL AND

IDEOLOGICAL SPECTRUM.

WE CAN'T EVEN COUNT HOW

MANY LETTERS, Facebook

MESSAGES AND PERSONAL

MESSAGES COMING TO US FROM

FOLKS IN THE GAY COMMUNITY,

FROM MUSLIMS, FROM SO MANY

PEOPLE THAT COMPLETELY

DISAGREE WITH O OUR

BELIEFS, BUT WE STAND WITH

YOU.

Reporter: THEY ARE

FINISHING THEIR SHOW AND

OFFERING TO TAKE NO

COMMISSION TO HELP THE

CASH-STRAPPED FAMILIES THAT

WANT TO FLIP THEIR SHOWS.

THE BROTHERS HAVE EMPHASIZED

THEY DON'T HATE OR

DISCRIMINATE AGAINST GAYS OR

ANYONE ELSE, AND WHEN IT

COMES TO THE BATTLE AGAINST

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM, THEY SAY

THEY WON'T BACK DOWN.

WHAT WE WANT TO DO IS NOT

JUST REPRESENT LOVE IN A

LOVING WAY, BUT WHAT WE WANT

TO DO IS WIN THIS BATTLE.

WE WANT TO FIGHT IT SO THAT

WE CAN WIN IT.

AND WHEN THE ENEMY SHOWS UP,

STAND UP AND DON'T BACK

DOWN.

Reporter: JOHN JESSUP,

CBN NEWS, REPORTING IN

CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA.

Pat: THANKS, JOHN.

THOSE GUYS HAVE A TREMENDOUS

FUTURE AHEAD OF THEM.

THEY ARE EXTRAORDINARY

SPOKESPEOPLE FOR THE POINT

OF VIEW OF MANY CHRISTIANS.

I JUST APPRECIATE THEIR

STAND.

I WANT TO CLARIFY SOMETHING

ABOUT WHO PRODUCES ALL OF

THIS.

THE HOME AND GARDEN MAGAZINE

IS PRODUCED AND PUBLISHED BY

THE HERSH CORPORATION, BUT

NOT THE TELEVISION SHOW,

WHICH IS PRODUCED BY THE

SCRIPPS CORPORATION, E.W.

SCRIPPS.

AND THEY'RE DIFFERENT,

SEPARATE COMPANIES.

I'VE MADE A MISTAKE BY

SAYING THAT HERSH DID IT

ALL.

THEY HAVE THE MAGAZINE, BUT

THE TV SHOW IS DONE BY

SCRIPPS, AND SCRIPPS IS THE

ONE MAKING THIS DECISION,

AND IT WAS A BAD DECISION.

AND A TERRIBLE HUMAN TRAGEDY

HAS TAKEN PLACE IN TURKEY.

MORE THAN 230 WORKERS HAS

BEEN KILLED IN A COAL MINE

EXPLOSION, AND THE DEATH

TOLL COULD GO HIGHER.

CHARLENE HAS THAT STORY FROM

THE CBN NEWS ROOM.

Reporter: RESCUERS ARE

IN A RACE AGAINST TIME TO

REACH MORE THAN 200 MINERS

TRAPPED UNDERGROUND IN A

COAL MINE IN WESTERN

TURKEY.

AN EXPLOSION KILLED MORE

THAN 200 PEOPLE INSIDE THE

MINE.

DALE HURD HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: DURING THE

NIGHT, PEOPLE CHEERED AND

APPLAUDED AS SOME PEOPLE

CAME OUT OF THE MINE.

THIS WOMAN SAYS, I DON'T

KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING.

I HAVEN'T HEARD ANYTHING.

SHE

THERE.

AN EXPLOSION FROM A POWER

DISTRIBUTION UNIT TORE

THROUGH THE MIND AS WORKERS

WERE PREPARING FOR A SHIFT

CHANGE.

WHICH MEANT MORE WORKERS

WERE INSIDE THE MINE THAN

USUAL.

Reporter: OFFICIALS

SAID THAT IT RELEASED CARBON

MONOXIDE.

THE AIR PUMPING

OPERATIONS CONTINUE.

AND AS OF NOW, WE HAVE LOST

201 OF OUR MINERS.

WE FEAR THAT THIS NUMBER

WILL RISE.

I ALSO SAID THERE WERE 80

WOUNDED, 60 OF THOSE INJURED

WERE THE MINERS.

Reporter: THE DEATH

TOLL IS EXPECTED TO GO MUCH

HIGHER AS RESCUE OPERATIONS

HAVE BEEN HINDER BECAUSE THE

MINE STILL HAS NOT BEEN

CLEARED OF DANGEROUS GAS.

SOME OF THE WORKERS WERE

MORE THAN A QUARTER MILE

BELOW THE SURFACE.

NEWS REPORTS SAID WORKERS

COULDúNFT USE ELEVATORS TO

ESCAPE BECAUSE THE EXPLOSION

HAD CUT OFF POWER.

SOME WHO WERE INJURED WERE

WISKED AWAY ON A STRETCHER,

TO THE CHEERS OF ONLOOKERS.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

HERE AT HOME,

CONSERVATIVES AND OTHERS ARE

BLASTING THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION AFTER A

REPORT THAT IMMIGRATION AND

CUSTOMS ENFORCEMENT RELEASED

36,000 CONVICTED CRIMINAL

ALIENS LAST YEAR.

THE IMMIGRANTS WERE WAITING

FOR THE FINAL DECISIONS IN

THEIR DEPORTATION FOR

SEATINGS, SO I.C.E E. COULD

HAVE KEPT THEM IN CUSTODY,

BUT DIDN'T.

THE CENTER'S JESSICA VAUGHN

CALLED IT SHOCKING, AND SAID

THE POLICIES HAVE OFTEN LET

CONSIDERATIONS OVERRIDE

CONCERNS ABOUT PUBLIC

SAFETY.

A MAJOR RULE IN EUROPE OVER

THE BATTLE IN PERSONAL

PRIVACY AND THE INTERNET.

GOOGLE AND OTHER SEARCH

ENGINES ARE FACING SOME

MAJOR LIMITATIONS THERE,

AFTER EUROPE'S HIGHEST COURT

RULED THAT PEOPLE SHOULD

HAVE SOME SAY OVER WHAT POPS

UP WHEN THEIR NAME IS

GOOGLED OR SEARCHED FOR ON

LINE.

THE EUROPEAN UNION COURT OF

JUSTICE SAYS GOOGLE MUST

LISP' AND SOMETIMES COMPLY

WHEN INDIVIDUALS ASK THE

INTERNET GIANT TO REMOVE

ARTICLES OR WEBSITES

CONTAINING PERSONAL

INFORMATION.

GOOGLE SAYS PEOPLE SHOULD

TAKE IT UP WITH THE WEBSITES

THAT POSTED THE MATERIAL.

THE COURT DECIDED THAT

THIS PERSON'S PRIVACY RIGHT

OUTWEIGHS GOOGLE'S INTEREST

IN MAKING ANY INFORMATION

AVAILABLE.

IT SOUNDS LIKE IT IS JUST

ABOUT GOOGLE, BUT IT'S

REALLY ACTUALLY VERY

THREATENING TO MUCH OF THE

INTERNET.

THE INTERNET IS A PLACE

WHERE YOU FIND INFORMATION.

Reporter: THE DECISION

DOESN'T AFFECT THE U.S. OR

OTHER COUNTRIES OUTSIDE

EUROPE, BUT IT WILL EFFECT

PEOPLE'S SEARCH ENGINES,

INCLUDING YAHOO AND

MICROSOFT.

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS MEETING

WITH THE LEADER OF SYRIA'S

OPPOSITION FORCES.

Vh MOVE COMES AFTER THE

SYRIAN GOVERNMENT IS GAINING

BATTLES.

THE QUESTION NOW IS ASSAD

ALMOST CERTAIN TO WIN THE

CIVIL WAR THERE.

HEATHER CELLS REPORTS.

Reporter: JUST DAYS

AGO, THE BATTERED CITY OF

HOMS STOOD AS A REBEL

STRONGHOLD.

AFTER THE GOVERNMENT'S

TWO-YEAR CAMPAIGN AND

BNMBING CAMPAIGN, THE REBELS

HAVE GIVEN UP.

TODAY THOUSANDS OF SYRIANS

ARE STREAMING BACK IN TOWN,

AND THE REBELS ARE GONE.

IT IS PAVING THE WAY FOR

PRESIDENT BASHAR

al-ASSAD.

THE U.S. HAS ALREADY

ANNOUNCED ITS JUNE 3rd

ELECTION.

THIS WEEK IT IS MEETING IN

WASHINGTON WITH WHAT IT

CALLS THE MODERATE

OPPOSITION.

HIS COALITION, THE SYRIAN

COALITION THAT HE HAS BUILT

IS AN INCLUSIVE AND MODERATE

INSTITUTION, COMMITTED TO

THE SYRIAN PEOPLE, AND TO

THE PROTECTION OF ALL

PEOPLE, ALL MINORITIES, ALL

RIGHTS WITHIN SYRIA.

Reporter: JUST LAST

WEEK THE U.S. RECOGNIZED

THIS OPPOSITION GROUP AS A

DIPLOMATIC FOREIGN MISSION

AND PLEDGED $27 MILLION TO

HELP THE REBELS OUST ASSAD.A&C @&Cú

BUT IS IT TOO LITTLE TOO

LATE?

OFF THE COAST OF CYPRUS,

INTERNATIONAL SHIPS WAIT TO

COLLECT THE LAST OF SYRIA'S

CHEMICAL WEAPONS BEFORE A

JUNE 30th DEADLINE, AFTER

SYRIA ALREADY MISSED AN

APRIL CUTOFF.

EARLY TUESDAY A LEADING

HUMAN RIGHTS GROUP SAYS IT

HAS STRONG EVIDENCE THAT

SYRIA USED CHEMICAL WEAPONS

ON REBELS JUST LAST MONTH.

MORE GRIM NEWS FOR A C

THAT HAS ALREADY LOST

150,000 PEOPLE IN ITS

CONFLICT.

HUMANITARIAN GROUPS SAY MORE

THAN THREE MILLION SYRIANS

HAVE NO ACCESS TO ESSENTIAL

GOODS AND SERVICES.

HEATHER CELLS, CBN NEWS.

PAT, WHAT IS YOUR TAKE ON

THIS SITUATION?

Pat: WHAT MY TAKE IS

THAT THE PRESIDENT, AS

USUAL, SCREWED UP.

HE IS LEADING FROM BEHIND.

HE LET THOSE REBELS

LANGUISH.

HE HELPED NOBOLY/

AND EARLY ON WE COULD HAVE

HAD SOME PLANS WE APPROVED

OF, BUT BEFORE LONG IT

BECAME TOO DANGEROUS.

WE COULD NOT SUPPORT ANY OF

THEM BECAUSE WE WEREN'T SURE

WHICH WAS al-QAEDA AND

WHICH WASN'T.

AND HE LET THE THING DESCEND

INTO A VICIOUS CIVIL WAR.

150,000 PEOPLE DEAD BECAUSE

OF INACTIVITY AND

THINKLESSNESS ON THE PART OF

THE LEADER OF THE MOST-$=]

AND WE'RE SEEING THIS TIME

AND TIME AND TIME AGAIN.

AND WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO

LIVE IN THE FUTURE WITH

CONSEQUENCES OF THE FAILED

FOREIGN POLICY OF THE UNITED

STATES.

CHARLENE?

Reporter: A THIRD

POTENTIAL CASE OF MIDDLE

EAST RESPIRATORY SYNDROME,

KNOWN AS MERS, HAS REPORTED

HERE IN THE U.S.

A MAN IN FLORIDA WAS

DIAGNOSED OVER THE WEEKEND.

THAT MAN IS NOW IN

ISOLATION.

EARLIER THIS MONTH, ANOTHER

MERS CASE WAS DISCOVERED IN

INDIANA.

THE DEADLY VIRUS WAS FIRST

FOUND IN THE MIDDLE EAST

BACK IN 2012.

SINCE THEN, THERE HAS BEEN

OVER 500 CASES.

THE MAJORITY IN SAUDI

ARABIA.

THE VIRUS HAS KILLED NEARLY

140 PEOPLE.

THE VIRUS CAN BE SPREAD BY

PEOPLE TRAVELLING AROUND THE

WORLD.

WELL, GET ENOUGH SLEEP OR IT

COULD BE VERY BAD FOR YOUR

HEALTH.

A NEW SURVEY FROM SCIENTISTS

WRITTEN IN THE U.S. FOUND

THAT PEOPLE ON AVERAGE ARE

SLEEPING TWO HOURS LESS THAN

THEY DID 60 YEARS AGO.

THAT CAN UPSET THE BODY

CLOCK.

AND THE LACK OF SLEEP CAN

ALSO LEAD TO SERIOUS HEALTH

PROBLEMS, INCLUDING HEART

DISEASE, CANCER, TYPE 2

DIABETES, OBESITY, AND

POSSIBLY EVEN A HEART

ATTACK.

PAT, THAT SOUNDSIKE A

REALLY GNóD REASON TO GET TO

BED ON TIME.

Pat: LET'S DO IT.

LET'S JUST CHUCK EVERYTHING

AND GET ON TO BED AND HAVE A

NAP.

I THINK NAPS ARE GOOD.

MY FATHER LIVED A LONG, LONG

TIME, AND HE HAD A 30-MINUTE

NAP EVERY DAY.

Wendy: I'M ALL FOR

NAPS.

AND THEN AROUND 10:00 AT

NIGHT I WANT TO TAKE A

WALK.

I'M JUST GETTING STARTED. Pat: YOU HAVE A SAR

SARCADIAN CLOCK THAT WORKS

THAT WAY.

IF YOU DON'T SLEEP, YOUR

BODY BUILDS UP -- IT IS

LEPTIN WHEN YOU DO SLEEP AND

GERHLIN WHEN YOU DON'T

SLEEP.

THE GERHLIN MAKES YOU

HUNGRY, AND THE LEPTIN

LEPTIN MAKES YOU NOT WANT

FOOD.

SO YOU'RE OUT WALKING AT

MIDNIGHT?

Wendy: SOME TIMES.

NOT OFTEN.

Pat: NOT OFTEN.

Wendy: IT'S A VERY SAFE

NEIGHBORHOOD.

Pat: WHATEVER.

IF YOU SEE SOME STRANGE LADY

OUT THERE AT 1 a.m., IT'S

WENDY.

GAY COUPLES IN IDAHO COULD

GET MARRIED AS SOON AS

FRIDAY.

A DISTRICT JUDGE RULED THE

STATE'S BAN ON SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE IS

UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

WE WON!

[LAUGHTER]

WE'RE ECSTATIC.

IT'S TIME.

IT IS.

IT HAS BEEN TIME.

I'M JUST GLAD IT IS FINALLY

REALLY TIME.

FOUR LESBIAN COUPLES SUED

THE STATE OVER THE SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE BAN APPROVED IN

2006.

THE GOVERNOR CALLS THE

DECISION,

QUOTE,"DISAPPOINTING AND A

SMALL SETBACK."

HE SAYS HE IS COMMITTED TO

UPHOLDING THE RULE OF THE

PEOPLE.

WELL, PUBLIC SCHOOL STUDENTS

WILL BE SEEING HEALTHIER

LUNCHES IN THE CAFETERIA

NEXT YEAR.

PASTA AND OTHER GRAIN

PRODUCTS WILL HAVE TO BE

WHOLE GRAIN RICH, INCLUDING

PIZZA CRUST, TORTILLAS, AND

EVEN GRITS.

SOME SCHOOL OFFICIALS SAY

THE MENU CHANGES ARE

EXPENSIVE AND DIFFICULT TO

PREPARE.

THEY'RE CONCERNED BECAUSE

MANY OF THE HEALTHIER

OPTIONS ARE ALREADY ENDING

UP IN THE TRASH.

THE GOVERNMENT IS ALSO

REQUIRING LOWER SODIUM AND

Je1Q!%

SNACKS.
