George: AND HELLO,

EVERYONE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M GEORGE THOMAS.

WELL, THE SUSPECT IS IN

CUSTODY IN THE CHARLESTON

CHURCH SHOOTING, AND THE

CITY CONTINUES TO GRIEVE

THE LIVES OF NINE PEOPLE

LOST.

AROUND THE COUNTRY,

CHURCHES ARE RESPONDING TO

THE SHOOTING BY HOLDING

VIGILS A HONORING THE

VICTIMS.

MEANWHILE, THE OFFICIALS

ARE WORKING TO FIND A

MOTIVE BEHIND THE DEADLY

ATTACK.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS MORE.

Reporter: THE SUSPECT

OF THE CHARLESTON SHOOTING

MAY BE IN CUSTODY, BUT

GRIEVING HAS ONLY JUST

BEGUN.

WE HAVE SOME PAIN WE

HAVE TO GO TO.

AND TO HAVE TO EXPLAIN TO

OUR KIDS HOW THEY CAN GO

TO CHURCH AND FEEL SAFE.

AND THAT IS NOT SOMETHING

WE EVER THOUGHT WE WOULD

DEAL WITH.

Reporter: THE

SUSPECTED GUNMAN IN THAT

CHURCH SHOOTING HAS BEEN

IDENTIFIED AT 21-YEAR-OLD

DYLANN ROOF, CAPTURED

OUTSIDE OF CHARLOTTE,

NORTH CAROLINA, 12 HOURS

AFTER OPENING FIRE IN A

CHURCH WEDNESDAY NIGHT.

WE'LL GET THROUGH IT.

OUR CHURCH WILL GET

THROUGH IT.

IT IS TOUGH TIME, BUT

EVERYBODY WILL PRESS ON.

Reporter: AMONG THE

VICTIMS, THE CHURCH'S

PASTOR, CLEMENTA PINCKNEY.

SURVIVORS SAY HE DIED

DOING WHAT HE LOVED,

SPREADING THE WORD.

FEDERAL LAW ENFORCEMENT

OFFICERS ARE INVESTIGATING

THE ATTACK AS A POSSIBLE

HATE CRIME.

SURVIVORS, AND EVEN THE

SUSPECT'S FRIENDS, SAY HE

SPEWED HATE.

HE SAID THAT HE THOUGHT

THAT THE BLACK IN GENERAL,

AS A RACE, WAS BRINGING

DOWN THE WHITE RACE.

Reporter: WHILE ROOF

IS ACCUSED OF ACTING OUT

OF HATE THERE IS HAS BEEN

ONLY LOVE AND UNITY IN THE

WAKE OF THE TRAGEDY.

OF COURSE, I'M ANGRY HE

DID IT.

BUT THE BIBLE I USE

TEACHES US TO LO

Reporter: COMMUNITIES

ACROSS THE COUNTRY ARE

ALSO BEGNG TO DISCUSS

THE ISSUE OF CHURCH

SAFETY.

PASTOR AND CBN NEWS CHIEF

OF POLICE CHRIS MITCHELL

SAYS THE CHURCH AND

VULNERABLE BUT MUST NOT

LOSE SIGHT OF ITS MISSION.

NATIONALLY, ACROSS THE

WORLD, THERE IS AN

INCREASE OF VIOLENCE

TOWARDS CHRISTIANSC CHRISTIANS.

THAT WILL INSIGHT SOLDERS OTHERS

TO DO THOSE SAME TYPES OF

ATTACKS TOWARDS US, SO IT

IS IMPORTANT TO REMAIN

VIGIL, BUT AT THE SAME

TIME ALWAYS OPERATE WITH

LOVE.

Reporter: THE CHURCH

WILL CONTINUE TO COME

TOGETHER WITH VIL JICHES WITH VICHALS AND

OTHER MEMORIALS.

George: A CHURCH

OVERSEAS HAS BEEN

ATTACKED.

JEWISH EXTREMISTS SET FIRE

TO THE CHURCH OF THE

TEPKA.

THE FIRE BURNED THE ROOF,

SEVERAL OFFICES, AND A

COMMUNITY ROOM.

HEBREW GRAFFITI

SPRAYPAINTED ON THE WALL

SAID, QUOTE,"IDOLERS WILL

BE ELIMINATED."

THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT

PLEDGED A SPEEDY

INVESTIGATION.

THE MINISTRY IS ON THE

GROUND THERE IN THE

GALILEE IN ORDER TO SEE

EVERYTHING, AND IN ORDER

TO MAKE SURE THAT

EVERYTHING WILL BE REBUILT

IMMEDIATELY.

AND I AM SURE THAT THOSE

EXTREMISTS WHO DID THESE

THINGS WILL BE CAUGHT.

I CAN ASSURE EVERYONE THAT

ISRAEL IS A PLACE THAT

WELCOMES EVERYONE FROM

EVERY RELIGION.

AS YOU CAN SEE HERE, IT

MAY BE THE SAFEST PLACE IN

THE WORLD FOR TOURISTS.

George: THE CHURCH IS

ONE OF THE MOST VISITED

SITES IN ISRAEL.

ONE OTHER ITEM FROM

OVERSEAS: al-QAEDA IS

DENYING ONE OF ITS KEY

LEADERS WAS KILLED IN A

U.S. DRONE STRIKE.

THE GROUP RELEASED A

STATEMENT SAS THAT MOKHTAR

IS ALIVE IN KICKING AND

WANDERING THE LAND OF GOD.

HE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR

SEVERAL INSURGENCIES IN

AFRICA.

EARLIER IN THE WEEK THEY

SAID HE WAS KILLED IN A

DRONE STRIKE.

> WHILE THE REMNANTS OF

THE TROPICAL STORM BILL

ARE CAUSING MAJOR FLOODING

AS THE SYSTEM MOVES

FURTHER INLAND.

ARKANSAS AND OKLAHOMA HAVE

BEEN HIT THE HARDEST WITH

ABOUT 10 INCHES OF RAIN

BETWEEN WEDNESDAY NIGHT

AND THURSDAY.

THE AUTHORITIES IN

OKLAHOMA HAVE RECOVERED

THE BODY OF AN 80-YEAR-OLD

WOMAN AND A 2-YEAR-OLDBOY

WHO WAS TRAGICALLPULLED

FROM HIS FATHER'S ARMS BY

RAGING WATERS ON

WEDNESDAY.

CITY OFFICIALS IN INDIANA

ARE ADVISING RESIDENTS TO

EVACUATE THEIR HOMES AS

THEY EXPECT RIVERS TO

CONTINUE RISING TO RECORD

HIGHS.

WELL, I CAN'T GET IN

AND OUT OF MY HOUSE AT

ALL.

LUCKILY SOMEONE HAD A

CANOE AND WAS ABLE TO TAKE

ME TO MY HOME SO I COULD

GET A FEW THINGS SO I CAN

STAY WITH MY PARENTS FOR A

FEW DAYS.

George: INCREDIBLE

PICTURES THERE.

TODAY THERE ARE FLOOD

WARNINGS ACROSS THE OZARKS

AND MID-MISSISSIPPI

VALLEY.

SHOULD THE SUPREME

COURT WRITE THE LAW OF THE

LAND ARE LEAVE IT TO STATE

LAWMAKERS.

WE'LL SOON KNOW IF THE

JUSTICES THINK THEY HAVE

THE POWER A RIGHT TO

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE, BUT

CHRISTIAN LEADERS SAY

EITHER WAY THEY WILL ONLY

OBEY GOD'S LAWS.

PAUL STRAND HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: SINCE THE

CONSTITUTION IS QUIET ON

MARRIAGE, PROMINENT

TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE

DEFENDERYAN ANDERSON

WISHES THE SUPREME COURT

WOULD JUST TOSS THE GAY

MARRIAGE CONTROVERSY BACK

TO EACH STATE.

WHAT THE CONSTITUTION

IS SILENT, THE PEOPLE IN

THE STATES, AND OUR

ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES,

SHOULD BE MAKING MARRIAGE

POLICY.

Reporter: MANY COURT

OBSERVERS THINK THAT GAY

MARRIAGE IS ILLEGAL IN

MUCH OF THE STATES, SO

MANY OF THE JUSTICESAY

LET'S MAKE IT THAT WAY IN

50 STATES.

BUT ANDERSON THINKS IT

WILL SET OFF A WAR AS

DEVISIVE AS ROE VS. WADE.

IF THEY STRIKE DOWN THE

CONSTITUTION LAWS, THEY'VE

GOT MARRIAGE WRONG AND IT

IS ACTIVISM.

Reporter: AND SOME

STAYSTATES A ALREADY PUNISHED

BAKERS AND BUSINESS OWNERS

WHO WON'T SUPPORT GAY

MARRIAGES.

FRANKLIN GRAHAM RECENTLY

WROTE, QUOTE,"THERE WILL

BE A STORM OF PERSECUTION

FOR ALL PERSONS WHO FOLLOW

GOD IF THIS PASSES."

THINGS THAT ARE

BIBLICAL ARE BECOMING LESS

AND LESS OKAY TO STAY IN

THE PUBLIC SPHERE.

Reporter: BUT

BAPTISTS WON'T ACCEPT ANY

REDEFINITION OF MARRIAGE

BY ANYBODY.

TRAMMEL SAYS THIS IS THEIR

STAND.

PUT IN THE POSITION OF

CHOOSING BETWEEN OBEYING

GOD AND OBEYING

GOVERNMENT, WE'RE GOING TO

OBEY GOD.

IF THERE ARE LEGAL

IMPLICATIONS BECAUSE OF

THAT, THAT IS SOMETHING

WE'RE WILLING TO ACCEPT.

Reporter: AND THEY'LL

LIKELY HAVE TO AS MORE

PEOPLE ARE BRANDING

BACKERS OF TRADITIONAL

MARRIAGE AS NO BETTER THAN

BIGOTS OR RACISTS.

AS MARCO RUBIO TOLD DAVID

BRODY...

IF YOU DO NOT SUPPORT

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE, YOU'RE

LABELLED A HOMOPHOBE.

Reporter: ANDERSON IS

REFERRING TO A FRIGHTENING

EXCHANGE BETWEEN JUSTICE

SAMUEL ALITA AND THE

SOLICITOR GENERAL ON A

HEARING DURING GAY

MARRIAGE.

HE SAID IN THE BOB JONES

CASE, THE COURT HELD A

COLLEGE WAS NOT ENTITLED

TO TAX EXEMPT STATUS IF IT

OPPOSED SAME-SEX DATING OR

MARRIAGE.

SO WOULD THE SAME APPLY TO

A COLLEGE IF IT OPPOSED

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE.

THE SOLICITOR GENERAL

SAID, IT IS CERTAINLY

GOING TO BE AN ISSUE.

I DON'T DENY THAT, JUSTICE

ALITO, IT IS GOING TO BE A

PROBLEM.

THE EXCHANGE ABOUT

WHETHER OR NOT TAX EXEMPT

STATUS FOR ROMAN

CATHOLIC -- LOTS OF

RELIGIOUS BELIEVERS ARE AT

RISK.

HE SAID IT IS GOING TO BE

AN ISSUE, AND IT WAS

CHILLING.

Reporter: EVEN

WITHOUT THE COURT HAVING

MADE GAY MARRIAGE THE LAW

OF THE LAND, CHRISTIANS

WHO TOOK A BIBLICAL STANCE

ON GAY MARRIAGE HAVE FOUND

THEMSELVES IN A CHALLENGE

IN THE COURTS.

SO IT MEANS CHRISTIANS,

BATON DOWN THE HATCHES.

ROUGH DAYS ARE AHEAD.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS AT

THE SUPREME COURT.

*

George: COMING UP,

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT AN

ABSENT FATHER EPIDEMIC,

AND WE'LL HEAR FROM THE

MAN WHO IS STARTING A

MUSICAL MOVEMENT TO FIGHT

THE PROBLEM.

George: AND WELCOME

BACK TO THE SHOW.

THEIR M.I.A., MISSING IN

ACTION.

I'M TALKING ABOUT FATHERS.

WITHOUT DADS, THE FAMILY

FOUNDATION HAS CRUMBLED

FOR MANY KIDS HERE IN

AMERICA.

A MOVEMENT CREATED BY

THREE CHRISTIAN MUSICIANS

TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM --

HERE IS EFREM GRAHAM WITH

THAT STORY.

Efrem: WHEN YOU HEAR

THE PHRASE RENAISSANCE

MOVEMENT, YOU MAY THINK OF

DONATELLO AND

MICHELANGELO, AND NOW

THREE VIRGINIA ARTISTS WHO

GO BY THE NAME LEGIN,

MIKE, AND SINAI, WANT A

DIFFERENT KIND OF SINAI,

USING RAP, WHICH ONE

RECENT STUDY CALLED THE

MOST IMPORTANT MUSIC GENRE

IN THE PAST CENTURY.

*

RENAISSANCE IS A FAMILY

OF ARTISTS.

AND WE JUST LOVE GOD, LOVE

THE GOSPEL, REALLY ENJOY

HIP-HOP, AND WE USE THAT

AS A TOOL.

Efrem: THEIR MISSION:

USE THE SAME BEATS, HOOKS,

AND RHYMES THAT ATTRACT

THE MASSES TO HIP-HOP,

WILL COUNTERING THE USUAL

NEGATIVE MESSAGE WITH THE

GOSPEL.

AND THE THREE SHARE A

PAINFUL PAST.

GROWING UP WITHOUT A

FATHER.

AS I WAS GROWING UP, I

KIND OF HATED MY FATHER,

MY BIOLOGICAL FATHER

BECAUSE OF THE STRUGGLES I

HAD TO SEE MY MOTHER GO

THROUGH.

IT WAS DIFFICULT NOT

HAVING SOMEONE TO SPEAK

INTO MY LIFE.

I WAS GETTING THAT FROM MY

MUSIC.

I WAS PROBABLY AROUND

11 OR 12 WHEN THE

REALIZATION HE WASN'T HERE

BY CHOICE HIT AND I

TURNED INTO BITTERNESS.

Efrem: AS YOUNG

PEOPLE, EACH STRUGGLED

WITH FINDING THEIR

IDENTITY AND WORTH.

GOD CHANGED THE HEARTS OF

SINAI'S AND LEGIN'#FATHER.

BUTEG'S RECONCILIATION

WAS SHORT-LIVED WHEN HE

DIED A FEW YEARS LATER.

HE WROTE ABOUT THAT IN THE

SONG "WISH I KNEW."

*

* MAN, I WISH OUR STORY

HAD A BETTER ENDING *

Efrem: THESE ARTISTS

BELIEVE THEIR FIRSTHAND

EXPERIENCE PUTS THEM IN

THE BEST POSITION TO FIGHT

THIS GROWING EPIDEMIC.

ALMOST 25 MILLION CHILDREN

IN THE UNITED STATES ARE

GROWING UP WITHOUT A

FATHER.

THAT'S ONE IN THREE.

THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN

COMMUNITY IS HIT THE

HARDEST, AFFECTING MORE

THAN HALF OF BLACK

CHILDREN.

EXPERTS CALL THOSE NUMBERS

THE FRUIT OF A BROKEN

SYSTEM.

BEFORE THE ADVENT OF

THE WELFARE STATE, THERE

WERE VERY VIABLE,

PROSPEROUS

AFRICAN-AMERICAN FAMILIES

ALL THROUGTHIS COUNTRY.

IT WAS THE DEVASTATION

CREATED BY THE WELFARE

SYSTEM THAT BEGAN THIS

PROCESS.

Efrem: WELFARE

CRITICS SAY THE SYSTEM

CREATES AN INCENTIVE TO

HAVE CHILDREN OUT OF

WEDLOCK.

WHY?

BECAUSE AN UNWED MOTHER

WILL RECEIVE MORE

ASSISTANCE IF SHE IS ALONE

THAN IF SHE HAS AN

EMPLOYED HUSBAND IN THE

HOME.

IN HIS BOOK, "TAKEN IN

CUSTODY," HE ADDS THAT THE

GOVERNMENT INITIATIVES

AREN'T REALLY HELPING

ANYONE.

THE GOVERNMENT FIRST

CREATES THE PROBLEM BY

REMOVING THE FATHER FROM

THE HOME, AND THEN THEY

SAY THEY'RE SOLVING THE

PROBLEM BY CREATI

EXPENSIVE PROGRAMS TO

RESTORE FATHERHOOD.

Efrem: THE FACT

REMAINS 72% LIVE IN

SINGLE-PARENT HOMES.

THAT'S WHY LEGIN, SINAI,

AND MIKE HOPE TO CHANGE,

BUT BEING THE DADS THEIR

FATHERS CHOSE NOT TO BE,

CREATING A MUSIC

ENVIRONMENT THAT CONNECTS

PEOPLE TO A GOD WHO CAN

HELP HEAL WOUNDS LEFT BY A

DAD WHO WASN'T THERE.

WE PRAY WE REALLY DO

START A MOVEMENT OF OTHER

ARTISTS WHO RISE UP AS

WELL, THAT WE CAN HELP

RISE UP, THAT WILL BE ABLE

TO GO OUT THERE AND HAVE

INFLUENCE OVER THE CULTURE

AND TAKE A LOT OF THE EARS

FROM PEOPLE THAT ARE

PROMOTING SEX, THE DRUGS,

THE VIOLENCE AS THE MAIN

THINGS, AND SAY THAT'S NOT

THE WAY.

IT DOESN'T WELL FOR YOU.

IT NEVER HAS ENDED WELL

FOR ANYBODY.

THERE IS A BETTER MESSAGE,

D WE BELIEVE THAT

MESSAGE IS IN CHRIST.

Efrem: EFREM GRAHAM,

CBN NEWS.

George: AND JOINING

ME IS MICHAEL ANDERSON,

ALSO KNOWN AS LEGIN.

GREAT TO HAVE YOU ON THE

BROADCAST.

A TREMENDOUS MINISTRY.

AND FATHER'S DAY CAN BE

VERY DIFFICULT FOR THOSE

WHO DON'T HAVE FATHERS IN

THE HOME THIS WEEKEND.

HOW DO YOU ENCOURAGE THOSE

WHO DON'T HAVE A FATHER?

MY ENCOURAGEMENT IS TO

LOOK TO YOUR HEAVENLY

FATHER WHO IS NEVER GOING

TO LET YOU DOWN.

YOU CAN HAVE THE GREATEST

FATHER IN THE WORLD, BUT

HIM, HE WILL NEVER LET YOU

DOWN.

FATHER'S DAY WAS ALWAYS

DIFFICULT FOR ME.

AT 21, I FOUND OUT WAS

ADOPTED BY MY FATHER, AND

I THOUGHT, AMAZING, I WAS

ADOPTED BY GOD.

George: WHAT DID THAT

DO TO YOU, KNOWING YOU

DIDN'T HAVE A FATHER IN

YOUR HOME, AND THEN LOSING

HIM TWO MONTHS AFTER YOU

SPOKE TO HIM.

I REALIZED AT THAT

MOMENT, THE ENTIRE TIME I

HAD ACCESS TO A PERFECT

FATHER WHO WAS WAITING FOR

ME TO COME BACK.

I WAS THE PRODIGAL.

AND IT MADE ME SEE EVEN IF

MY DAD WAS A PERFECT DAD,

HE COULDN'T GIVE ME WHAT

GOD GAVE ME.

SO I WAS NEVER WITHOUT.

George: LET'S TALK

ABOUT THE MUSIC.

YOU HAVE A MIXED TAPE, A

NEW ONE COMING OUT.

FIRST KING IS COMING

OUT JUNE 30th, ON

Facebook.COM/RMTV.

AND IT TALKS ABOUT ONLY

THE THRONE FOR JESUS AND

WE WANT TO LIFT HIM UP AND

TALK ABOUT THAT.

George: DO YOU HAVE A

SEGMENT YOU CAN SHARE WITH

US NOW?

YEAH.

I HAVE A PIECE ABOUT

FATHERHOOD.

WE'RE ALL FATHERS WHO LOVE

WIVES, AND FATHERS ALL IN

OUR KIDS' LIVES.

LOVE GOD AND HATE EVIL.

YOU WON'T CATCH US

SLIPPING OFF THE MIC.

AIN'T JUST A JOB, AIN'T

JUST RAP.

THEY SAY THE BIBLE IS

FAIRY TALES, BUT THEY SAY

HE MADE IT UP.

STREET DUDES, PORN

ADDICTS, FOUND GOD, GAVE

IT UP.

HE GAVE US SOME AND THAT'S

ALL IT IS.

George: THAT

MINISTERS TO PEOPLE.

YOU'RE REACHING THE PEOPLE

WHERE THEY ARE.

I WANTED TO BELIEVE

THAT FATHERLESS IS A BLACK

PROBLEM, AND IT IS

DISPROPORTIONATELY SO, BUT

PEOPLE HAVE ALL WALKS OF

LIFE, AND THEY HAVE THE

SAME PROBLEM AS ME.

George: YOU ARE

SPREADING A VERY, VERY

IMPORTANT MESSAGE.

I KNOW YOU HAVE TWO KIDS.

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY.

THANK YOU, MY MAN.

AND YOU, TOO.

George: YOU CAN HEAD

TO cbnnews.com TO LEARN

ABOUT WHAT RENAISSANCE

MUSIC IS ALL ABOUT.

LEGIN, TNK YOU FOR BEING

ON THE BROADCAST.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING

ME.

George: FOLKS,

SMARTPHONES HAVE

REVOLUTIONIZED THE WAY YOU

TAKE PICTURES.

COMING UP, WELL SHOW YOU A

NEW COMPANY THAT IS HOPING

TO REVOLUTIONIZE THE WAY

YOU PRINT THOSE PICTURES.

I THINK THE BEST ADVICE

MY DAD IS WAS TO BE TOUGH.

IT WAS DIFFICULT TO HEAR

AS AN ADULT,I REALIZE

THAT WAS GREAT ADVICE.

George: AND WELCOME

BACK TO THE BROADCAST.

REMEMBER THE OLD POLAROID

CAMERAS, THE ONES THAT LET

YOU PRINT A PICTURE AS

SOON AS YOU TOOK THEM?

THAT IDEA HAS BEEN

RE-IMAGINED BY A NEW TECH

STARTUP.

CAYLEB KINSLO AND EFREM

GRAHAM SHOW YOU HOW.

EFREM, I BET YOU HAVE A

LOT OF PICTURES ON YOUR

SMARTPHONE.

INDEED, I DO.

THAT'S MY WIFE, SON, AND

DAUGHTER.

AND THAT'S MY GRANDMOTHER,

97 YEARS OLD.

AND THERES MY LITTLE

COUSIN.

I BET YOU DON'T HAVE

TANGIBLE COPIES OF THOSE

PICTURES?

ABSOLUTELY NOT.

WHY DO I NEED THEM?

WOULDN'T YOU LIKE

COPIES IN YOUR HAND.

YES.

THERE IS A PINTER THAT

SNAPS ON TO YOUR

SMARTPHONE.

I THINK IT WILL

REVOLUTIONIZE THE WHOLE

PICTURE-TAKING GAME.

Efrem: IT MIGHT, BUT

IT SOUNDS LIKE I'VE HEARD

THIS BEFORE.

IT IS A LITTLE SIMILAR,

BUT THERE ARE SOME

DIFFERENT FEATURES.

WE WANT YOU TO GO

FURTHER THAN PRINTING

PICTURES, SO ONC WHAT WE

STARTED DOING AT THIR FIRST WAS

IMAGE REC NATION.

RECOGNITION.

AND THEN WE GAVE LIFE TO

THOSE PICTURES.

THE DEVICE REQUIRES NO

INK, BLUETOOTH OR WI-FI

AND IT DOESN'T PULL ANY

POWER FROM YOUR

SMARTPHONE.

BUT HOW COOL IS THE

PRICE?

IT IS ONLY $129, WHICH

INCLUDES 10 SHEETS OF THE

PAPER AND COMES OUT THIS

FALL.

Efrem: I GUESS THAT

MAKES PRINT TEXT WORTH

TALKING ABOUT.

George: GUYS, REALLY,

I HAVE, LIKE, THOUSANDS OF

PICTURES ON MY PHONE.

THERE IS NO WAY I'M GOING

TO BE PRINTING IT.

WE'LL BE BACK RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

ONE OF THE MOST

IMPORTANT LESSONS I

LEARNED FROM MY DAD WAS

WHEN HE WASN'T EVEN

TALKING TO ME.

HE WAS TALKING TO MY OLDER

BROTHER, A YOUNG COLLEGE

STUDENT UP THERE READY TO

CHANGE THE WORLD,

CRITICIZING AND EXPLAINING

ABOUT EVERYTHING GOING ON.

MY DAD SAID, IF YOU'RE

GOING TO CRITICIZE THINGS,

YOU HAVE TO HAVE A

SOLUTION FOR THE PROBLEM.

DON'T JUST CRITICIZE, BUT

COME UP WITH AN ANSWER,

OTHERWISE THERE IS NO

POINT IN EVEN TALKING.

George: WHAT DOES IT

TAKE TO BE A MAN?

WELL, THAT'S A QUESTION A

NEW CHRISTIAN FILM CALLED

"THE SECRET HANDSHAKE"

ASKS.

THE FILM STARTS KEVIN

SORBO AS A SUBURBAN FATHER

OF THREE GIRLS WHO TAKES

ON THE CHALLENGE OF

MENTORING A TROUBLED YOUNG

MAN WHO HAS A CRUSH ON HIS

TEENAGED DAUGHTER.

"THE SECRET HANDSHAKE" IS

NOW AVAILABLE ON D.V.D.

EXCLUSIVELY IN WAL-MART

STORES.

AND IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR

SOME OTHER ENTERTAINMENT

OPTIONS FOR THIS FATHER'S

DAY WEEKEND, YOU ARE IN

THE RIGHT PLACE.

JOINING ME NOW IS BOB BOB

WALLASHEFSKI, WITH FOCUS

ON THE FAMILY'S

ENTERTAINMENT REVIEW

DEPARTMENT CALLED "PLUGGED

IN ONLINE."

GREAT TO HAVE YOU BACK ON

THE BROADCAST, BOB.

THE FIRST FILM WE'RE

TALKING ABOUT IS "ME AND

EARL AND THE DYING GIRL."

BOB, IS THIS A

FAMILY-FRIENDLY FILM?

NOW TALK TO ME.

WELL, I'LL TELL YOU,

THIS IS ACTUALLY A

FAMILY-FRIENDLY FILM AT

ITS CORE SURROUNDED BY SO

MUCH YUCK I CAN'T

RECOMMEND IT.

AT ITS CORE, IT IS ABOUT A

HIGH SCHOOL BOY WHO'S

MOTHER FORCES HIM TO GO

OVER TO A GIRL'S HOUSE WHO

HE FINDS OUT HAS LEUKEMIA

TO SPEND SOME TIME WITH

HER.

HE DOESN'T WANT TO GO, AND

WHEN HE GETS THERE, SHE

DOESN'T WANT HIM THERE.

BUT EVENTUALLY THEY BECOME

FAST FRIENDS AND VERY

CLOSE FRIENDS.

AND THAT FRIENDSHIP IS

ACTUALLY REALLY KIND OF

SPECIAL.

BUT CAST AROUND IT IS SO

MUCH SENSUAL TALK, SO MUCH

CRASS AND CRUDE TALK, AND

SO MUCH PROFANITY IN THIS

FILM WE GAVE THIS FILM A

MERE TWO OUT OF FIVE FOR

FAMILY FRIENDLINESS.

THIS ONE HAD POTENTIAL.

George: ANOTHER ONE

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT IS THE

NEW PIXAR ANIMATED FILM

CALLED "INSIDE OUT."

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS

ONE?

I LOVE THIS FILM.

IT HAS NOW BECOME MY

SECOND FAVORITE PIXAR

FILM.

I LIKE "UP" STILL A LITTLE

BETTER, BUT I LIKE THIS

BETTER THAN "MONSTERS

INC.."

THIS IS ABOUT AN

11-YEAR-OLD GIRL, REILLY,

WHO MOVES FROM MINNESOTA

TO SAN FRANCISCO.

AND LEAVING HER FRIENDS

AND BEING IN A NEW SCHOOL

AND BEING IN A NEW HOME.

SHE HAS ALL OF THIS

PROCESSING THESE THOUGHTS.

THEN WE GO INSIDE HER HEAD

AND FIND OUT THERE ARE

FIVE LITTL EMOTION

CHARACTERS THAT BASICALLY

RUN THE CONTROL BOARD OF

HER MIND.

WE HAVE JOY AND SADNESS

AND ANGER AND DISGUST,

ETC.

IT IS REALLY CUTE TO WATCH

WHAT IS HAPPENING THERE,

ESPECIALLY WHEN JOY AND

SADNESS ARE BANISHED FROM

THE CONTROL ROOM OF HER

MIND TO KIND OF A FERTILE

AREA OF HER MIND, AND THE

OTHERS TAKE CONTROL.

REILLY MIGHT GET A LITTLE

CRANKY.

THIS IS VERY MUCH OUT OF

THE BOX.

WE HAVE NEVER SEEN

ANYTHING LIKE IT.

BUT IN PIXAR STYLE IT IS

VERY, VERY CUTE.

THE ONLY THING WE KNOCKED

IT DOWN A HALF POINT FOR

WAS A LITTLE BIT OF

IRRESPONSIBLE BEHAVIOR ON

THE PART OF REILLY.

I THINK PARENTS CAN TALK

THROUGH THIS ONE.

PARENTS MAY WANT TO LOAD

THE MINIVAN.

George: BOB

WALLASHEFSKI WITH FOCUS ON

THE FAMILY'S "PLUGGED IN

ONLINE" DIVISION.

AND GREAT TO HAVE THE

LATEST ON WHAT HITS THE

THEATERS AROUND THE

COUNTRY.

BY THE WAY, HAPPY FATHER'S

DAY.

YOU, TOO, GEORGE.

George: FOLKS, THAT'S

IT FOR NOW ON CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

UNTIL NEXT WEEK, HAVE A

GREAT WEEKEND AND HAPPY

FATHER'S DAY.
