THANKS FOR JOINING US FOR

CBN "NEWSWATCH," I'M CAITLIN

BURKE.

Efrem: AND I'M EFREM

GRAHAM.

U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE,

JOHN KERRY, HAS BEEN WORKING

WITH NEGOTIATORS IN

SWITZERLAND.

THEY'RE TRYING TO WORK OUT A

DEAL TO ELIMINATE IRAN'S

ABILITY TO DEVELOP NUCLEAR

WEAPONS, IN EXCHANGE FOR

SANCTIONS RELIEF AS AN END

OF MARCH DEADLINE LOOMS.

ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU SAYS THE

U.S. IS ON THE VIRGE OF

MAKING A BAD NUCLEAR DEAL

WITH IRAN.

HE SENT THAT MESSAGE TO A

JOINT SESSION OF CONGRESS.

BUT PRESIDENT OBAMA AND

DOZENS OF DEMOCRATS DIDN'T

WANT TO HEAR THE WARNING.

CBN'S DAVID BRODY REPORTS

FROM WASHINGTON.

THE PRIME MINISTER OF

ISRAEL, HIS EXCELLENCY,

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU!

[APPLAUSE]

David: APPLAUSE AND

CRITICISM GREETED ISRAELI

PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU.

MORE THAN 50 DEMOCRATS

STAYED AWAY, SOME BECAUSE OF

UPCOMING ELECTIONS IN

ISRAEL; OTHERS BECAUSE THEY

FELT REPUBLICAN LEADERS

SNUBBED THE WHITE HOUSE BY

INVADING THE PRIME MINISTER

WITHOUT ANY NOTICE.

PRESIDENT OBAMA DIDN'T EVEN

WATCH THE SPEECH.

THIS DOESN'T HELP THE ROCKY

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE TWO

LEADERS.

BUT THE PRIME MINISTER TOOK

THE HIGH ROAD, OPENING WITH

PRAISE FOR THE PRESIDENT.

SOME OF WHAT THE

PRESIDENT HAS DONE FOR

ISRAEL MIGHT NEVER BE KNOWN

BECAUSE IT TOUCHES ON SOME

OF THE MOST SENSITIVE AND

STRATEGIC ISSUES THAT ARISE

BETWEEN AN AMERICAN

PRESIDENT AND AN ISRAELI

PRIME MINISTER.

BUT I KNOW IT, AND I WILL

ALWAYS BE GRATEFUL TO

PRESIDENT OBAMA FOR THAT

SUPPORT.

David: THE MAIN

TENSION DEALS WITH IRAN'S

NUCLEAR PROGRAM.

IN LEADING THE NEGOTIATIONS,

THE U.S. IS PUSHING TO

DOWNGRADE, BUT NOT ELIMINATE

IRAN'S ABILITY TO MAKE

NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

NETANYAHU TOLD CONGRESS IT

IS THE WRONG STRATEGY.

THIS DEAL HAS TWO MAJOR

CONCESSIONS: ONE, LEAVING

AROUND WITH A VAST NUCLEAR

PROGRAM.

AND, TWO, LIFTING THE

RESTRICTIONS ON THAT PROGRAM

IN ABOUT A DECADE.

THAT'S WHY THIS DEAL IS IS

SO BAD.

ACCORDING TO THE DEAL, NOT A

SINGLE NUCLEAR FACILITY

WOULD BE DEMOLISHED.

THOUSANDS OF CENTRIFUGES

USED TO ENRICH URANIUM WOULD

BE LEFT SPINNING.

THOUSANDS MORE WOULD BE

TEMPORARILY DISCONNECTED,

BUT NOT DESTROYED.

David: THE WHITE HOUSE

HAS REPEATEDLY SAID THEY

WANT A NUCLEAR-FREE IRAN.

THEY JUST THINK THAT

NEGOTIATIONS ARE THE WAY TO

GET THERE.

YET EVEN WHITE HOUSE

OFFICIALS ADMIT THAT AN

ACTUAL DEAL WITH IRAN ON

NUCLEAR WEAPONS IS 50/50 AT

BEST.

BUT AFTER THE PRIME

MINISTER'S SPEECH, THE

PRESIDENT QUESTIONED A LACK

OF SOLUTIONS ON NETANYAHU'S

PART.

President Obama: ON THE

CORE ISSUE, WHICH IS HOW DO

WE PREVENT IRAN FROM

OBTAINING A NUCLEAR WEAPON,

WHICH WOULD MAKE IT FAR MORE

DANGEROUS AND WOULD GIVE IT

SCOPE FOR EVEN GREATER

ACTION IN THE REGION, THE

PRIME MINISTER DIDN'T OFFER

ANY VIABLE ALTERNATIVES.

David: ADD TO THE

SPEECH WHITE HOUSE CONCERN

THAT CONGRESS MIGHT PASS

ADDITIONAL SANCTIONS AGAINST

IRAN, AND THE NEGOTIATIONS

ARE AT A SENSITIVE STAGE.

AND THIS STRONG ARGUMENT

COULDN'T COME AT A WORST

TIME FOR DEAL-MAKERS.

IF ANYONE THINKS -- IF

ANYONE THINKS THIS DEAL

KICKS THE CAN DOWN THE ROAD,

THINK AGAIN.

WHEN WE GET DOWN THAT ROAD,

WE'LL FACE A MUCH MORE

DANGEROUS IRAN, A MIDDLE

EAST LITTERED WITH NUCLEAR

BOMBS, AND A COUNTDOWN TO A

POTENTIAL NUCLEAR

NIGHTMARE.

David: REPUBLICAN

SENATOR TED CRUZ SAYS THE

PRESIDENT'S ROLE OF

PASSIVIST AND CHIEF IS

CHIEFLY TO BLAME FOR

ISRAEL'S SITUATION.

DO YOU BELIEVE HE DISLIKES,

FIRST OF ALL, NETANYAHU?

DO YOU BELIEVE HE HAS

ANTAGONISM TOWARDS ISRAEL?

UNDOUBTEDLY.

IT IS HEARTBREAKING.

THIS ADMINISTRATION HAS BEEN

THE MOST HOSTILE U.S.

ADMINISTRATION TO ISRAEL IN

THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY.

David: AND CRUZ HAS

HARSH WORDS FOR DEMOCRATS

WHO DIDN'T SHOW UP FOR THE

SPEECH.

DAVID, I'LL TELL YOU

THIS: NO FRIEND OF ISRAEL

WOULD BOYCOTT A SPEECH BY

THE ELECTED LEADER OF

ISRAEL, PARTICULARLY AT A

TIME OF ENORMOUS PERIL.

David: THOSE

WORDS, "ENORMOUS PERIL," ARE

ONES ECHOED BY NETANYAHU.

HIS PEOPLE REMEMBER THE

HOLOCAUST, AND HE IS

DETERMINED TO NEVER LET

ANYTHING LIKE THAT HAPPEN

AGAIN.

I CAN GUARANTEE YOU THIS:

THE DAYS WHEN THE JEWISH

PEOPLE REMAIN PASSIVE IN THE

FACE OF GENOCIDAL ENEMIES --

THOSE

DAYS ARE

OVER!

[APPLAUSE]

I CAN PROMISE YOU ONE

MORE THING: EVEN IF ISRAEL

HAS TO STAND ALONE, ISRAEL

WILL STAND.

BUT I KNOW THAT ISRAEL DOES

NOT STAND ALONE.

I KNOW THAT AMERICA STANDS

WITH ISRAEL!

I KNOW THAT YOU'LL STAND

WITH ISRAEL!

[APPLAUSE]

David: DAVID BRODY,

CBN NEWS, WASHINGTON.

Efrem: THE ISLAMIC

STATE RELEASED FOUR MORE

SYRIAN CHRISTIAN HOSTAGES

FROM THE MORE THAN 200 THEY

KIDNAPPED LAST WEEK IN

SYRIA.

THE ASSYRIAN RIGHTS GROUP

DEMAND FOR ACTION SAYS THE

REASONS FOR THEIR RELEASE

WAS UNCLEAR.

EARLIER THIS WEEK, ISIS

RELEASED 19 CHRISTIAN

HOSTAGES AFTER THEY PAID AN

ISLAMIC TAX POSED ON

NON-MUSLIMS.

OBAMACARE IS BACK BEFORE

THE SUPREME COURT TODAY, AND

SOME BELIEVE A RULING

AGAINST THE ADMINISTRATION

COULD MEAN THE BEGINNING OF

THE END FOR THE AFFORDABLE

CARE ACT.

DALE HURD HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: FOR WORDS

COULD DOOM THE ENTIRE 2,000

PAGE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT ON

A TECHNICALITY.

THOSE WORDS TO BE ARGUED

BEFORE THE COURT TODAY ARE

ESTABLISHED BY THE STATE.

OPPONENTS SAY THE LAW

REQUIRED INDIVIDUAL STATES

TO CREATE THEIR OWN HEALTH

CARE EXCHANGES.

BUT 34 STATES CHOSE NOT TO

DO THAT, SO THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION CREATED A

NATIONAL HEALTH CARE

EXCHANGE.

IF THE COURT DECIDES THAT

VIOLATES THE LAW, FIVE

MILLION TO SEVEN MILLION

AMERICANS MIGHT NOT BE

ELIGIBLE TO GET SUBSIDIES

FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

TO BUY HEALTH INSURANCE.

IF THE COURT WERE TO RULE

THAT THE ADMINISTRATION'S

INTERPRETATION WAS WRONG,

THEN THERE ARE 34 STATES

WHERE PEOPLE WOULD NO LONGER

BE ABLE TO GET THESE TAX

CREDITS FOR BUYING COVERAGE

ON THE EXCHANGE.

Reporter: AND IF THOSE

SUBSIDIES GO AWAY, EXPERTS

SAY OBAMACARE WILL CRUMBLE

BECAUSE ONLY THE SICKEST

PEOPLE WOULD PARTICIPATE IN

THE EXCHANGES.

PREMIER RATES WOULD

SKYROCKET, AND OBAMACARE

COULD GO INTO A DEATH

SPIRAL.

LAWYERS FOR THE GOVERNMENT

WILL ARGUE AGAINST A LITERAL

INTERPRETATION OF THE LAW,

SAYING THE INTENT IS TO

CLEARLY HELP PEOPLE IN ALL

50 STATES GET AFFORDABLE

HEALTH CARE COVERAGE.

THERE IS BREAST CANCER IN

MINE FAMILY, SO FOR ME

HAVING INSURANCE IS VERY

IMPORTANT.

Reporter: THE FATE OF

OBAMACARE IS ONCE AGAIN IN

THE HANDS OF NINE JUSTICES.

SOME REPUBLICANS SAY EITHER

WAY THEY'LL KEEP WORKING TO

REPEAL THE LAW.

IT IS BAD PO FOR

PARENTS, BAD FOR THE NURSES

AND DOCTORS WHO TAKE CARE OF

THEM, AND TERRIBLE FOR

TAXPAYERS.

THIS IS JUST ONE MORE

EXAMPLE OF A LAW THAT HAS

ALL SORTS OF UNINTENDED

CONSEQUENCES FOR ALL SORTS

OF PEOPLE.

Reporter: THE SUPREME

COURT'S DECISION IS EXPECTED

TO COME DOWN IN JUNE.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: FORMER SECRETARY

OF STATE HILLARY CLINTON

ONLY USED A PERSONAL E-MAIL

ACCOUNT FOR GOVERNMENT

BUSINESS WHILE SHE RAN THE

STATE DEPARTMENT.

THE "NEW YORK TIMES"

REPORTS SHE NEVER ACTUALLY

HAD A GOVERNMENT E-MAIL

ADDRESS.

THAT COULD VIOLATE

GOVERNMENT REQUIREMENTS.

AND CLINTON'S AIDES DIDN'T

HAVE HER E-MAILS RECORDED ON

GOVERNMENT COMPUTER

SERVICES, WHICH IS REQUIRED

BY LAW SO OTHER OFFICIALS,

CONGRESS, AND HISTORIANS CAN

ACCESS THEM IF NECESSARY.

WHILE IT IS NOT ILLEGAL

BY ANY MEANS TO USE A G-MAIL

ACCOUNT OR TO USE SOME OTHER

PRIVATE ACCOUNT FOR THE

TRANSACTION OF GOVERNMENT

BUSINESS, IT IS A VERY

UNUSUAL CIRCUMSTANCE TO

SOLELY USE THAT ACCOUNT AND

THEN NOT TO TAKE STEPS,

DURING ONE'S TIME IN OFFICE,

TO MAKE SURE THAT THOSE

E-MAIL RECORDS ARE

APPROPRIATELY PRESERVED.

A SPOKESMAN FOR

MRS. CLINTON SAYS SHE HAS

BEEN COMPLYING WITH THE

SPIRIT AND THE LETTER OF THE

LAW.

Efrem: THE ALABAMA

SUPREME COURT HAS PUT A HALT

TO SAME-SEX MARRIAGE IN

THEIR STATE.

THE JUSTICES ARE DEFYING

FEDERAL COURTS, AND ORDERING

STATE PROBATE JUDGES TO STOP

ISSUING MARRIAGE LICENSES TO

SAME-SEX COUPLES.

SIX JUSTICES ON THE COURT

RULED THE U.S. CONSTITUTION

DOESN'T ALTER THE JUDGES'

DUTY TO ADMINISTER STATE

LAW.

ALABAMA LAW DEFINES MARRIAGE

AS BETWEEN ONLY ONE MAN AND

ONE WOMAN, AND THE JUSTICES

SAY A FEDERAL COURT CANNOT

TELL THEM TO CHANGE THAT.

LAWMAKERS IN CHARLOTTE,

NORTHWEST TERRITORIES NORTH

CAROLINA, VOTED AGAINST A

DISCRIMINATION ORDINANCE.

FRANK GRAHAM SAYS THE CITY

COUNCIL MADE THE RIGHT

DECISION, TELLING THE

CHARLOTTE OBSERVER HE IS

ORDERING A BIG THANK YOU FOR

THOSE WHO SIT AGAINST THIS

PROPOSITION.

SOME SAY IT MOVERS THE CITY

BACKWARD AND NOT FORWARD,

AND SHOWS A CONTINUED LACK

OF COMMITMENT TO FAIR

TREATMENT OF ALL ITS

CITIZENS AND RESIDENTS.

120 PEOPLE SIGNED UP TO

SPEAK EITHER FOR OR AGAINST

THE MEASURE.

Efrem: PEOPLE IN

FERGUSON, MISSOURI, ARE

PREPARING TO RESPOND TO A

CHARGE OF RACISM.

THEY SAY THEIR POLICE

OFFICERS HAVE ROUTINELY

DISCRIMINATED AGAINST BLACKS

WITH PETTY CITATIONS AND

EXCESSIVE FORCE.

THIS COMES ON THE HEELS OF

THE DEATH OF 18-YEAR-OLD

MICHAEL BROWN, WHO WAS SHOT

BY A WHITE POLICE OFFICER.

THEY HIGHLIGHTED

A, QUOTE,"PATTERN AND

PRACTICE OF DISCRIMINATION

AGAINST AFRICAN/AMERICANS."

COMING UP, NO REST FOR

THE WINTER WEARY.

ANOTHER ROUND OF WEATHER

MAKES ITS WAY ACROSS THE

COUNTRY AND COULD BREAK

WEATHER RECORDS.

WE'LL EXPLAIN WHY.

Efrem: ANOTHER MASSIVE

WINTER STORM IS MOVING

ACROSS THE U.S. TODAY.

AT LEAST 30 STATES ARE UNDER

WINTER WEATHER ALERTS, FROM

UTAH TO MAINE.

PARTS OF THE MIDWEST ARE

ALREADY EXPERIENCING ICE

CONDITIONS.

TONIGHT THE STORM MOVES

EAST.

NEW YORK CITY IS EXPECTED TO

GET SIX TO EIGHT INCHES.

AND HARD-HIT BOSTON COULD

BREAK ITS RECORD OF

107 INCHES THE SNOW, SET

BACK IN 1995.

> THE REBOUND OF MOTOWN --

IN DECEMBER, THE CITY OF

DORIT DORIDETROIT CAME OUT

OF ONE OF THE BIGGEST

BANKRUPTCY EVER.

BUT IT IS NOT OUT OF THE

WOODS YET.

Reporter: IN ITS GLORY

YEARS, DETROIT MADE ITS NAME

FOR PRODUCING FAST CARS AND

THAT GREAT MOTOWN SOUND.

WHEN THE CITY FELL ON TOUGH

TIMES, THE MUSIC STOPPED.

ONCE HOME TO 1.8 MILLION,

THE CITY'S POPULATION

DROPPED BY 60%.

LEAVING NEARLY 80,000

BUILDINGS SITTING EMPTY.

COLLAPSING UNDER AN

$18 BILLION DEBT, THE CITY

FILED FOR BANKRUPTCY IN

2013.

I'VE SEEN PROGRESS.

I'VE SEEN STREET LIGHTS COME

BACK ON.

I'VE SEEN NEW DEVELOPMENT

HAPPENING.

Reporter: IN LESS THAN

TWO YEARS, THAT TUNE HAS

CHANGED.

AND SOME, LIKE LAWRENCE

WILLIAMSON WITH MIDTOWN

DETROIT, FEEL MOTOWN IS ON

THE REBOUND.

BUT BEING AT THE BOTTOM

WAY ACTUALLY A GOOD THING.

BECAUSE RIGHT AFTER WE SORT

OF HIT BOTTOM AND WAS

DECLARED BANKRUPT, THAT'S

WHEN WE STARTED TO GET A LOT

OF CALLS FROM OUTSIDE

INVESTORS, OUTSIDE INTEREST

GROUPS, SAYING I'M

INTERESTED IN INVESTING IN

DETROIT.

Reporter: THAT INTEREST

EVEN EXTENDS TO MID-TOWN

DREEDETROIT, ONE OF THE

ROUGHEST NEIGHBORHOODS.

SINCE 2013, 2014, THERE

ARE 100 NEW BUSINESSES

LOCATED IN TOWN.

THAT'S A LOT.

Reporter: QUICKN

QUICKEN LOANS FOUNDER HAS

SPENT MORE THAN 1.6 MILLION

FIXING UP HIS HOME TOWN.

HE IS LURING TECH COMPANIES

TO SET UP SHOP.

HE NOT ONLY UPDATES

PROPERTIES, HE HAS ALSO

MOVED HIS OWN EMPLOYEES INTO

MANY OF THEM.

HE BROUGHT IN NOT ONLY

JUST HIS BUSINESS, BUT HIS

EMPLOYEES, WHICH IN TURN

NEEDED HOUSING, WHICH IN

TURN HAD CONSUMER SPENDING,

WHICH IS RESTAURANTS, BARS,

AND GROCERY STORES.

Reporter: MANY SAY A

LOT MORE WORK NEEDS TO BE

DONE, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT

COMES TO JOBS AND THE CITY'S

POOR.

CHAD AUDI OF DETROIT RESCUE

MISSION MINISTRIES SAYS

LOSING THE BANKRUPTCY LABEL

IS JUST THE BEGINNING OF THE

ECONOMIC TURNAROUND.

WE STILL HAVE A HIGH

NUMBER OF HOMELESS PEOPLE ON

THE STREETS OF DETROIT.

WE STILL HAVE A LOT OF

BLIGHT, SO WE DON'T HIDE

THAT.

BUT WE'RE GOING IN THE RIGHT

DIRECTION.

Reporter: AT THE HEIGHT

OF THE STRUGGLES, OFFICIALS

MADE DEEP CUTS IN CITY

SERVICES, INCLUDING FIRE AND

POLICE DEPARTMENTS.

OFFICER JOHN BENNETT HAS

BEEN A COP FOR 16 YEARS.

BACK THEN HE TOLD CBN

NEWS...

WE'VE LOST ON THE POLICE

DEPARTMENT, 1,000 OFFICERS

THAT HAVEN'T BEEN REPLACED

IN THE LAST FIVE TO SIX

YEARS.

Reporter: NOW HE IS

CAUTIOUSLY OPTMISTIC.

THAT MOVEMENT IS GREAT

AND IT IS GOOD TO SEE, BUT

WE'VE GOT TO FIND A WAY TO

BRING THAT SYNERGY OUTSIDE

OF MID-TOWN AND DOWNTOWN AND

INTO THE NEIGHBORHOODS.

AND WE HAVE TO BE ABLE TO

MAKE EVERYONE, THOSE WHO

LIVE, WORK, AND PLAY HERE,

SAFE, AT ALL TIMES.

THOSE AREAS ARE PROBABLY

GOING TO STRIVE, THEY'RE

GOING TO BE FINE.

BUT IF WE CAN'T FIND A WAY

TO MOVE THAT ENERGY TO THE

NEIGHBORHOODS AND GET THAT

GROWTH IN THE NEIGHBORHOODS

AND BRING JOBS TO THE PEOPLE

WHO ARE IN THE NEIGHBORHOODS

AND MAKE THOSE PEOPLE SAFE.

Reporter: WHILE IT IS

GOOD NEWS THAT THE WORST

FINANCIAL CRISIS IN

DETROIT'S HISTORY IS IN THE

REAR-VIEW MIRROR, IT WILL

TAKE MORE THAN JUST MONEY TO

MOVE FORWARD.

WE WANT THE

REVITALIZATION BECAUSE WE

WORK WITH PEOPLE.

WITHOUT PEOPLE, YOU CANNOT

REVITALIZE ANYTHING.

Reporter: CHARLENE

AARON, CBN NEWS, DETROIT,

MICHIGAN.

UP NEXT, A HARMLESS VICE

THAT IS WARPING A

GENERATION: THE HIDDEN COSTS

OF PORN ADDICTION.

Efrem: THE PORNOGRAPHY

BRINGS IN AS MUCH AS

$97 BILLION AROUND THE WORLD

EACH YEAR.

THAT DOESN'T EVEN INCLUDE

ALL OF THE PORNOGRAPHY

PEOPLE CAN SEE FOR FREE.

DESPITE ALL OF THE

EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY,

MANY PEOPLE THINK THERE IS

NO EMOTIONAL COST TO

PORNOGRAPHY.

BUT AS PAUL STRAND REPORTS,

THEY NOT ONLY HURT

THEMSELVES, THEY CAN BRING

SEVERE PAIN TO OTHERS AS

WELL.

Reporter: PORNOGRAPHY

HAS BECOME SO MAINSTREAM,

MUCH OF SOCIETY IS STARTING

TO BELIEVE IS HORM

HARMLESS.

WHAT YOU'LL OFTEN HEAR IS,

WELL, I'M NOT HURTING

ANYTHING.

BUT THERE ARE REAL VICTIMS.

FOR INSTANCE, GIRLS FORCED

TO ACT IN PRODUCTIONS

AGAINST THEIR WILL.

THERE WAS A LOT OF WOMEN

BEING RAPED IN KICKED AND

BEATEN.

Reporter: NADINE TOLD

HOUSE THE US HOW THEY PUT

HER IN A CAGE WITH A BOA

CONSTRICTOR.

HE DROPPED THE SNAKE IN

AND HE FILMED MY TERROR, AND

IT DIDN'T HAVE ANYTHING TO

DO WITH SEX ACCEPT I WAS

NAKED.

Reporter: THIS WOULDN'T

HAPPEN IF THERE WASN'T SUCH

AN X-RATED DEMAND.

AND IT HURTS THE ONES CLOSE

TO THEM, LIKE THE WIFE OF

MATT RUSSELL.

IT WAS A CONSTANT

COMPANION OF MINE, DESPITE

MARRIAGE AND CHILDREN.

IT REALLY SUNK ME BECAUSE

I FELT THAT HE PREFERRED

JUST EVEN THE IMAGE OF

SOMEONE OVER ME.

AS A WOMAN, THAT'S A HARD

THING TO HANDLE.

IT FINALLY GOT TO THE POINT

WHERE I JUST SAID, I'M DONE,

I'M DONE WITH THIS, AND WE

SEPARATED.

Reporter: CATHY'S

HUSBAND, GREG, DROVE HER TO

SEEK THERAPY TO DEAL WITH

HIS ADDICTION AND THE AFFAIR

THAT FOLLOWED.

I HAD THIS GAPING WOUND.

AND I KNEW IF I DIDN'T GET

SOME COUNSELLING, I WAS

GOING TO HATE MEN.

Reporter: THESE MEN

EVENTUALLY BROKE FREE AND

THE COUPLES RECONCILED.

KEVIN CONRAD LEADS AN

ACCOUNTABILITY GROUP.

I HAVE SEEN MEN LOSE

JOBS -- NOT JUST JOBS, BUT

CAREERS.

I'VE SEEN THEM LOSE

FAMILIES, LOSE CHILDREN,

LOSE RELATIONSHIPS WITH

PARENTS AND SIBLINGS.

Reporter: CHURCH

COUNSELLOR TRINA NUBORN SEES

HOW THAT DESIRE FOR THE

X-RATED DESTROYS MARRIAGES.

BASED ON THE COUPLES I'VE

SEEN, AT LEAST 50% OF THE

COUPLES COMING FORWARD HAVE

SOME KIND OF STRUGGLE WITH

PORNOGRAPHY OR INTERNET

AFFAIRS.

Reporter: CBN NEWS

SPOKE TO PASTOR JAY DENIS

ABOUT THE PROBLEMS IN

CHURCHES.

HAVE MEN LOST THEIR JOBS

AND WIFE'S OVER

PORNOGRAPHY?

ABSOLUTELY.

AND I HEAR IT CONTINUALLY.

I SEE IT IN THE CHURCH.

I SEE IT AMONG PASTORS.

Reporter: SUCH AS TOM

WOLF, A YOUTH PASTOR, WHO'S

LIFE IN THE X-RATED WORLD

LED TO A SERIES OF AFFAIRS.

I WAS FOUND OUT AND I

OBVIOUSLY LOST MY JOB, LOST

MY CHURCH, LOST MY YOUTH

PASTOR'S JOB.

FOR A WHILE I LOST MY

FAMILY.

Reporter: MISSIONARY

NICK RIPKIN SAYS SO MANY

YOUNG MEN ARE ADDICTED THEY

CAN'T BE ON THE MISSION

FIELD.

A LOT OF THEM GOT STARTED

AT 11, 12, AND THEY CAN'T

GET OUT OF IT.

Reporter: AND THE RATIO

IS SEVEN FEMALE MISSIONARIES

FOR EVERY MALE.

AND MEN AREN'T THE ONLY

ONES.

CRYSTAL MANU SAYS ONE IN

THREE VISITORS TO THE ADULT

SITES ARE WOMEN.

EVEN WITH THE ACTUAL

VISUAL PORNOGRAPHY, WOMEN

ARE BEING DRAWN INTO IT BY

THE DROVES.

Reporter: SHE TESTIFIES

HOW THIS TAKES PEOPLE INTO

DARKER AND RISKIER PLACES.

FOR WOMEN WHO STRUGGLE

WITH PORN, IT IS SAID THAT

80% OF THEM WILL ESCALATE

THEIR BEHAVIORS INTO

IN-PERSON ENCOUNTERS.

Reporter: SOMETIMES IT

LEADS TO CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR.

I KNOW OF EDUCATORS WHO

WERE VIEWING PORNOGRAPHY IN

THEIR CLASSROOMS.

I KNOW OF EDUCATORS THAT

SIMPLY, YOU KNOW, ARE TAKING

ADVANTAGE OF CHILDREN.

Reporter: IN HER

RESEARCH, PSYCHOTHERAPIST

MARY ANN SEES A CONSISTENT

LINK BETWEEN THOSE WHO

CONSUME PORN AND THOSE WHO

COMMIT SEXUAL VIOLENCE.

AND SHE TALKS ABOUT A

FRIGHTENING STUDY OF COLLEGE

MALES WHO USE MORE AND MORE

PORN ON COLLEGE CAMPUS.

WE ARE TEACHING OUR MALES

TO BE PSYC PSYCHOPATHS.

THAT IS ABSOLUTELY GOING

AGAINST EVERYTHING THAT

JESUS HAS TAUGHT US.

THEY CAN HELP IT.

THEY CAN CHOOSE AGAINST

THIS.

Reporter: DIRE SAYS

THEY KNOW IN THEIR HEARTS

THEY'RE WRONG.

WHY DO YOU HIDE IT FROM

YOUR WIFE?

WHY DO YOU HIDE IT FROM

GOD?

BECAUSE YOU KNOW IT IS NOT

RIGHT.

Reporter: NADINE BLAMES

THESE ADDICTS FOR WHAT

HAPPENS TO WOMEN LIKE HER.

THEY DON'T KNOW ABOUT THE

DEGRADATION THAT HAPPENS

INSIDE OF YOU, THE TEARING

OF YOUR SOUL AND RIPPING OUT

OF YOUR HEART WHEN YOU GET

FILMED LIKE THAT.

AND THEN TO KNOW THERE ARE

PEOPLE, MOSTLY MEN, BUT

WOMEN, TOO, WHO ARE GAWKING

AND STARING AN EYEING

EVERYTHING.

Reporter: PASTOR DENIS

SAYS VIEWERS CAN ENTERTAIN

JOB.

IN JOB, HE SAYS, I MADE A

COVENANT WITH MY EYES NOT TO

LOOK LUSTFULLY AT A YOUNG

WOMAN.

Reporter: AND BY

EXCEPTING THAT JESUS CHRIST

DIED ON THE CROSS TO SET

YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN FREE.

SO WE WOULDN'T HAVE TO

GIVE INTO OUR SINFUL

NATURE'S.

Reporter: SOME DECLARE

THEY CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT

PORNOGRAPHY.

THAT ISN'T SO.

THE TRUTH IS NO ONE IN

HISTORY HAS EVER DIED FROM A

LACK OF PORNOGRAPHY.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS,

REPORTING FROM LAKELAND,

FLORIDA.

COULD COFFEE ACTUALLY BE

GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH?

Efrem: A NEW STUDY

FINDS DRINKING THREE TO FIVE

CUTS A DAY COULD CUT YOUR

RISK OF HAVING CLOGGED

ARTERIES THAT COULD LEAD TO

A HEARTACHE.

THAT'S A FINDING FROM A

STUDY FROM SOUTH KOREA.

BUT THE RESEARCHERS SAY MORE

STUDY IS NEEDED, AND THEY'RE

NOT WILLING TO GO AS FAR,

JUST YET, TO SAY PEOPLE

SHOULD DRINK COFFEE TO

PREVENT HEART PROBLEMS.

DRING UDRINK UP OR DON'T

DRINK UP.

THAT'S IT FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH," AND YOU CAN

FIND MORE EXCLUSIVE COVERAGE

AT CBNNEWS.COM.

Efrem: WE WANT TO HEAR

WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THE

STORIES YOU'VE SEEN TODAY.

YOU CAN DO THAT ON

Facebook OR AT CBN NEWS AT

TWITTER.

HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US HERE

AGAIN NEXT TIME.

MAKE IT A WONDERFUL

WEDNESDAY, EVERYBODY.
