Caitlin: TODAY ON

"NEWSWATCH," UNDER FIRE.@

THE U.S. ATTORNEY-GENERAL

MET WITH BILL CLINTON AT

THE SAME TIME THE F.B.I.

IS INVESTIGATING HILLARY.

DID THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL

COMMIT A VIOLATION OF

ETHICS?

> PLUS, THE ECONOMY IS

SPUTTERING ALONG.

SEE WHO HAS A PLAN TO

SUPER CHARGE IT BY

SLASHING AMERICA'S

COMPLICATED TAX SYSTEM.

GOD'S JUDGMENT ON

AMERICA, HIS HAND OF

JUDGMENT, WILL PUT US DOWN

ON OUR KNEES UNTIL WE LOOK

UP.

Caitlin: THE

SURPRISING TRUTH ABOUT THE

CHURCH IN AMERICA, AND THE

ONE THING THAT CAN TURN

THIS NATION AROUND.

> THANKS FOR JOINING US

FOR CBN "NEWSWATCH."

I'M CAITLIN BURKE.

WAS IT JUST AN AWKWARD

MOMENT OR A CONFLICT OF

INTEREST?

BOTH REPUBLICANS AND

DEMOCRATS IN WASHINGTON

ARE UPSET OVER A MEETING

THIS WEEK BETWEEN THE U.S.

ATTORNEY-GENERAL LORETTA

LYNN AND FORMER PRESIDENT

CLINTON.

IT CALLS INTO QUESTION THE

IMPARTIALITY.

GARY LANE HAS MORE.

Reporter:@@

ATTORNEY-GENERAL LORETTA@@

LYNN CROSSED PATHS WITH

BILL CLINTON MONDAY AT THE

PHOENIX AIRPORT.

SHE PORTRAYED IT AS A

CHANCE ENCOUNTER, SIMPLY

AN EXCHANGE OF PERSONAL

PLEASANTRIES.

OUR CONVERSATION WAS A

GREAT DEAL ABOUT HIS

GRANDCHILDREN AND ABOUT

OUR TRAVELS.

HE MENTIONED THE GOLF HE

PLAYED IN PHOENIX.

Reporter: IT CAME

ABOARD THE

ATTORNEY-GENERAL'S PRIVATE

JET.

SHE SAID THERE WAS NO

DISCUSSION ABOUT BENGHAZI

OR ABOUT THE INVESTIGATION

INTO HILLARY CLINTON'S

E-MAILS.

WHO WOULD THINK WHEN

YOU HAVE THIS MASSIVE

INVESTIGATION GOING ON ON

E-MAILS, WHICH IS SO

SERIOUS, THEY WOULD HAVE A

MEETING LIKE THIS, I WAS

VERY SURPRISED.

Reporter: AND THE

CRITICISM DIDN'T COME FROM

ONLY REPUBLICANS.

SOME DEMOCRATS ALSO

SUGGESTED THE APPEARANCE

OF A CONFLICT OF INTEREST

BECAUSE OF THE

INVESTIGATION OF THE

FORMER PRESIDENT'S WIFE

WHEN SHE WAS SECRETARY OF

STATE.

I THINK SHE SHOULD HAVE

SAID, I RECOGNIZE YOU HAVE

A LONG RECORD OF

LEADERSHIP ON FIGHTING

CRIME, BUT THIS IS NOT THE

TIME FOR US TO HAVE THAT

CONVERSATION.

Reporter: EVEN DAVID

AXELROD TWEETED LYNCH WAS

FOOLISH FOR CREATING SUCH

OPTICS.

THIS IS SNIF SIGNIFICANT

BECAUSE WHILE THE F.B.I.

IS STILL INVESTIGATING

HILLARY CLINTON'S E-MAILS

AND HER PERSONAL SERVER

WHILE SHE WAS SECRETARY OF

STATE, IT IS THE

ATTORNEY-GENERAL WHO WILL

DECIDE.

> THE WHITE HOUSE

INSISTS POLITICS WON'T

PLAY A ROLE IN THE

DECISION ON WHETHER OR NOT

TO INDICT MRS. CLINTON.

WHAT IS PARAMOUNT IN

THE MIND OF THE PRESIDENT

IS A COMMITMENT TO THE

RULE OF LAW, AND A

COMMITMENT TO ENSURING

THAT JUSTICE IS

ADMINISTERED WITHOUT

REGARD TO POLITICAL

AFFILIATION OR POLITICAL

FAMILY.

Reporter: GARY LANE,

CBN NEWS.

Caitlin: ISRAELIS ARE

MOURNING THE DEATH OF THE

13-YEAR-OLD GIRL WHO WAS

MURDERED IN HER BED BY A

17-YEAR-OLD PALESTINIAN.

AS CHRIS MITCHELL REPORTS

FROM JERUSALEM, LEADERS

ARE BLAMING THE CONSTANT

INCITEMENT BY THE

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY FOR

HER DEATH.

Reporter: THE DEATH

OF ARIELLE SHOCKED THE

NATION.

A PAKISTANI TEENAGER SNUCK

INTO HER BEDROOM AND

STABBED HER TO DEATH.

ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU

EXPRESSED THE MOURNING

OF

THE COUNTRY.

THIS MORNING A

TERRORIST SNEAKED INTO THE

BEDROOM OF A 13-YEAR-OLD

GIRL.

HE MURDERED HER IN COLD

BLOOD.

THE PICTURE OF HER

BLOOD-STAINED ROOM IS

ALMOST TOO HARD TO SEE.

THERE IS A TEDDY BEAR

STILL ON HER BED, SOME

PICTURES ON THE WALL,

SHOE

S

TIGHTLY PACKED IN

A

BIN NEXT TO HER BUNKBED.

WHY WOULD ANY PERSON DO

THIS?

Reporter: NETANYAHU

BLAMED INCITEMENT BY THE

PALESTINI AUTHORITY.

THREE DAYS BEFORE THE

MURDER OF ARIELLE, A

SENIOR LEADER OF MAHMOUD

ABBAS' POLITICAL PARTY,

"EVERYWHERE YOU

SEE AN

ISRAELI,

CUT OFF HIS

HEAD."

YOU DON'T SLIT A LITTLE

GIRL'S THROAT

T

O

PROTEST A

POLICY YOU

DON'T LIKE.

YOU DO

THIS BECAUSE YOU'VE

BEEN BRAINWASHED.

YOU'VE BEEN BRAINWASHED BY

A

WARPED IDEOLOGY THAT

TEACHES YOU THAT THIS

CHILD ISN'T HUMAN.

Reporter: ARIELLE WAS

A U.S. CITIZEN.

THE REALITY IS THIS

INCITEMENT BY PALESTINIAN

AUTHORITY PRESIDENT

MAHMOUD ABBAS HAS RESULTED

IN THE MURDERING OF

CHILDREN.

THE VENGEANCE OF THE LORD

IS THE VENGEANCE OF THE

LORD, BUT OUR VENGEANCE IS

CONTINUING TO BUILD ON

THIS LAND.

Reporter: ACCORDING

TO A HEBRON NEWS AGENCY,

THE MOTHER OF THE

17-YEAR-OLD SAID, MY SON

IS A HERO.

HE MADE ME PROUD.

MY SON DIED AS A MARTYR

DEFENDING JERUSALEM.

FATAH DECLARED HIM A

MARTYR.

HUNDREDS CAME

TO ARIELLE'S

FUNERAL.

HER MOTHER, RINA, BLAMED

MOHAMMED'S MOTHER.

I RAISED MY DAUGHTER WITH

LOVE, SHE SAID, AND YOU

TAUGHT YOUR SON TO HATE.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN

NEWS.

Caitlin: DEFENSE

SECRETARY ASH CARTER SAYS

THE CHANGE TAKES EFFECT

IMMEDIATEING, TO LET

OPENLY GAY PEOPLE SERVE IN

THE COUNTRY.

WE DON'T WANT BARRIERS

PREVENTING US FROM

RECRUITING OR RETAINING

THE SOLDIER, SAILOR,

AIRMAN, OR MARINE WHO CAN

BEST ACCOMPLISH THE

MISSION.

Caitlin: TRANSGENDER

SERVICE MEMBERS WILL

RECEIVE THE RECEIVE THE

SAME MEDICAL COVERAGE.

AND THAT INCLUDES HORMONE

THERAPY AND GENDER

REASSIGNMENT SURGERY.

> A FEDERAL JUDGE

BLOCKED AN INDIANA LAW ON

THURSDAY THAT BANS

ABORTIONS ON BABIES WITH

GENETIC ABNORMALITIES.

ABORTIONS FOR RACE, SEX,

OR ANCESTRY ARE ILLEGAL.

THEY ARGUED THE LAW WAS

UNCONSTITUTION AND

VIOLATED INDIANA'S RIGHTS.

BUT SOME ARGUED THE LAW IS

ABOUT PREVENTING

DISCRIMINATION.

> IN FLORIDA, A FEDERAL

JUDGE IS BLOCKING A LAW

THAT LIMITED PUBLIC

FUNDING TO ABORTION

CLINICS IN THE STATE.

THE LAW PREVENTED ANY

STATE FUNDS FROM GOING TO

A GROUP THAT ALSO PROVIDES

ABORTIONS.

AND IT ALSO ADDED HEALTH

INSPECTIONS AND REQUIRED

ABORTION DOCTORS TO HAVE

ADMITTING PRIVILEGES TO

NEARBY HOSPITALS.

> SINCE THE SUPREME

COURT STRUCK DOWN THE

TEXAS ABORTION BILL,

PLANNED PARENTHOOD HAS

LAUNCHED A CAMPAIGN TO

ATTACK EIGHT OTHER STATES.

AMERICANS UNITED FOR

LIFE'S PRESIDENT SAYS THE

SUPREME COURT'S DECISION

ON MONDAY WILL DRIVE DOWN

THE MEDICAL STANDARDS IN

ABORTION CLINICS IN STATES

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

HE SAID ONE THING THAT

TAXPAYERS NEED TO

UNDERSTAND IS THAT IS

PLANNED PARENTHOOD'S

ATTORNEYS WIN IN ANY OF

THE EIGHT STATES,

TAXPAYERS WILL PAY THE

ATTORNEYS' FEES.

> THE WEAK U.S. ECONOMY

IS ONE OF THE MOST

IMPORTANT ISSUES IN THIS

ELECTION YEAR.

BUT IS THERE A WAY TO GET

THE ECONOMY GROWING AGAIN

AND MAKE FILING YOUR TAXES

EASIER AT THE SAME TIME?

CRITICS SAY OUR COMPLEX

TAX CODE IS HURTING

BUSINESSES AND COSTING

JOBS.

NOW REPUBLICANS IN

CONGRESS SAY THEY HAVE A

PLAN TO CHANGE ALL OF

THAT.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON BRINGS

US THIS STORY FROM

WASHINGTON.

Reporter: THE ECONOMY

MAY NOT BE GROWING VERY

STRONG, BUT THE LENGTH OF

THE AMERICAN TAX CODE IS.

THE COMPLICATED TAX CODE

IS DIFFICULT TO COMPLY

WITH.

AND IT INCLUDES THE

HIGHEST BUSINESS TAX AMONG

MAJOR COUNTRIES.

EXPERTS ARGUE THAT THE

GOVERNMENT COULD SOLVE

BOTH PROBLEMS AT ONCE BY

REFORMING THE ALMOST

75,000-PAGE FEDERAL TAX

CODE, AND THAT A NEWER,

STREAMLINED TAX SYSTEM

COULD HELP THE ECONOMY

COME BACK AND CREATE MORE

JOBS.

THE CURRENT U.S. TAX

CODE IS WRITTEN LIKE IT

WAS PRODUCED BY OUR

ECONOMIC ADVERSARIES, WHO

ARE TRYING TO UNDER MINE

OUR AMERICAN ECONOMY.

IT WORKS AGAINST AMERICA.

WE TACKS WHAT WE PRODUCE

IN THIS COUNTRY, AND WE

DON'T TAX WHAT WE IMPORT

FROM OTHER COUNTRIES.

Reporter: STEVEN

MOORE,

AN

ECONOMIC ADVISOR

FOR THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN

SAYS IT IS TIME TO GET RID

OF ALL OF THE JUNK IN THE

TAX SYSTEM AND MAKE IT

SIMPLE.

HAVE A POSTAL CARD TAX

RETURN: HOW MUCH DID YOU

MAKE?

PAY A CERTAIN PERCENTAGE

FOR THAT.

MAYBE AN ALLOWANCE FOR HOW

MANY KIDS YOU HAVE AND HOW

BIG YOUR FAMILY IS.

BUT ALL OF THESE TAX

BREAKS FOR INVESTING IN

WINDMILLS AND BULL

SPERM -- LET'S GET RID OF

THAT.

Reporter: NOW

CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS

HAVE DEVELOPED A TAX

REFORM PLAN THEY SAY WILL

MAKE THE TAX CODE SIMPLER

AND STRENGTHEN THE

ECONOMY.

THEY BELIEVE THE ECONOMY

COULD GROW TO 3% TO 4% A

YEAR, WHICH IS FAR BETTER

THAN THE 1% TO 2% UNDER

OBAMA.

THAT WOULD ADD MORE JOBS

TO THE MARKET, LEADING TO

HIGHER PAYCHECKS.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON, CBN

NEWS.

Caitlin: FOR MORE

ABOUT THE REPUBLICAN PLAN

FOR SI SIMPLIFYING THE TAX

CODE, PAT ROBERTSON SPOKE

WITH KEVIN BRADY, THE

CHAIRMAN OF THE HOUSE

WEIGHS AND MEANS

COMMITTEE.

HE EXPLAINED THE PLAN.

WHAT WE'RE LAYING OUT

IS A VERY PRO-FAMILY AND

PRO-TAX CODE.

AND THE GOAL HERE IS TO

CREATE MORE JOBS MER HERE IN

THE LOCAL ECONOMY.

IT IS TO SIMPLIFY THE

CODE, TO MAKE IT SO FAIR

AND SIMPLE, IT ACTUALLY

CAN BE FILED ON A POSTCARD

FOR MOST AMERICANS.

AND WE WANT TO MAKE SURE

THAT WE BUST UP THE I.R.S.

SO IT IS ACTUALLY WORKING

FOR AMERICANS, NOT AGAINST

US.

AND IF WE DO THAT, WELL, I

THINK WE I THIN CAN GET RID OF

THE SECOND-RATE ECONOMY,

WHERE MILLIONS OF

QUALIFIED WORKERS CAN'T

FIND FULL-TIME JOBS, AND

AMERICA KEEPS FALLING

BEHIND.

WE GET WEAKER AND OUR

FOREIGN COMPETITORS GET

STRONGER.

AND WE WANT TO DO THE

OPPOSITE.

THIS IS VERY MUCH A

PRO-AMERICAN TAX CODE AS

WELL.

Pat: I LOVE WHAT

YOU'RE DOING.

LET'S START WITH BUSINESS.

APPARENTLY AMERICA IS THE

HIGHEST TAXED COUNTRY.

WHEN THEY GET RID OF

PAYING FEDERAL TAXES, THEY

HAVE TO PAY STATE TAXES.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH

BUSINESS TAXES, FOR

STARTERS?

ONE, WE MAKE SURE

WASHINGTON TAKES LESS OF

WHAT OUR LOCAL BUSINESSES

EARN SO THEY CAN INVEST IN

THE LOCAL ECONOMY, RATHER

THAN SEND THEIR MONEY AND

GROW WASHINGTON'S ECONOMY.

SO WE PROPOSE THE LOWEST

BUSINESS RATES IN MORE

THAN 100 YEARS, FOR

BUSINESSES, WHETHER

THEY'RE LARGE OR SMALL,

FAMILY-OWNED OR

CORPORATIONS, BECAUSE WE

KNOW THAT IS THE KEY TO

GROWTH.

THE OTHER THING IS, FOR

THE FIRST TIME WE STOP

TAXING AMERICAN BUSINESSES

HERE AT HOME AND THEN

UNDER THE CURRENT LAW, WE

TAX THEM WHEN THEY COMPETE

AND GO AROUND THE WORLD

AND TRY TO BRING THE

PROFITS HOME TO INVEST IN

OUR LOCAL COMMUNITIES AND

JOBS -- WE'RE THE ONLY

COUNTRY THAT TAXES THEM.

SO WE STOPPED DOING THAT

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN

HISTORY.

AND ALSO FOR THE FIRST

TIME IN HISTORY, WE STOP

TAXING WHAT IS MADE IN

AMERICA, AND WE TAX THE

IMPORTS THAT ARE COMING

IN.

SO FOR THE FIRST TIME OUR

"MADE IN AMERICA" PRODUCTS

WILL BE COMPETITIVE HERE

AND AROUND THE WORLD.

Pat: THE TAX CODE IS

JUST RIDDLED WITH

EXCEPTIONS.

THE LOBBYISTS HAVE BEEN AT

IT FOR YEARS, AND THEY

HAVE LITTLE CUTOUTS AND

CARVEOUTS FOR PRIVILEGES.

YOU'RE DOING AWAY WITH A

LOT OF THAT STUFF, AREN'T

YOU?

YOU HAVE TO TO GET THIS

FLAT?

WE REALLY ARE.

SINCE PRESIDENT REAGAN

DEVISED THE CODE, IT HAS

GOTTEN MORE AND MORE

COMPLEX.

WHAT FAMILIES CAN KEEP UP

WITH THAT?

THE ANSWER IS NO ONE.

WE BASICALLY GO ALL IN FOR

GROWTH ON JOBS.

AND FOR FAMILIES, WE GO

ALL IN FOR SIMPLICITY.

IN FACT, WE'VE BEEN

LISTENING.

THE AMERICAN PUBLIC HAS

TOLD US FOR YEARS, WHY

CAN'T WE HAVE A CODE SO

SIMPLE AND SO FAIR IT

COULD FIT ON A POSTCARD?

AND WASHINGTON ALWAYS SORT

OF DISMISSED THAT AS THAT

CAN NEVER HAPPEN.

GUESS WHAT?

IT CAN HAPPEN, AND THAT'S

WHAT WE'RE PROPOSING,

EXACTLY THAT.

Pat: THERE IS ONE

THING IN THE CODE THAT

CARL MARCH LIKE, CALLED

THE DEATH TAX, AND I

UNDERSTAND YOU'RE TAKING

THAT AWAY.

YEAH.

I LEAD THE COALITION IN

WASHINGTON AND ACROSS THE

COUNTRY TO END THE DEATH

TAX.

SO FOR THE FIRST TIME

SINCE IT WAS ESTABLISHED

IN 1916, WE PERMANENTLY

END IT.

IT IS THE MOST IMMORAL TAX

ON THE BOOKS.

IT HITS THE WRONG PEOPLE

AT THE WRONG TIME FOR THE

WRONG REASONS.

IT IS THE NUMBER ONE

REASON FAMILY-OWNED FARMS

AND BUSINESSES AREN'T

PASSED DOWN TO THEIR KIDS

AND GRANDKIDS.

SO WE END IT, WHICH I

THINK FOR A LOT OF

AMERICANS IS GOING TO BE A

BIG SIGH OF RELIEF.

Caitlin: YOU CAN FIND

MORE DETAILS ABOUT HOW THE

PLAN WILL HELP BUSINESSES

BY WATCHING OUR EXTENDED

VERSION OF THAT INTERVIEW

AT cbnnews.com.

> COMING UP, WE'RE ABOUT

TO CELEBRATE AMERICA'S

BIRTHDAY.

BUT HOW MANY MORE DO WE

HAVE

LEFT?

WHY SOME LEADERS SAY

WITHOUT REVIVAL, AMERICA

IS HEADED FOR THE ASH HEAP

OF HISTORY.

Caitlin: SOME PEOPLE

CONSIDER AMERICA THE

GREATEST NATION ON EARTH.

BUT AS PAUL STRAND

REPORTS, MANY AMERICANS

WORRY THAT THE COUNTRY HAS

FALLEN SO FAR FROM ITS

HISTORIC VALUES THAT IT IS

DOOMED, UNLESS IT MAKES A

SERIOUS U-TURN.

Reporter: THIS TIME

OF YEAR, AMERICANS ARE

USED TO CELEBRATE

AMERICA'S GREATNESS AND

ITS BIRTHDAY.

BUT IT SOON MAY BE SELL

EXPERIENCING ITS DOWNFALL.

THESE AUTHORS SAY THE U.S.

IS ENTERING ITS OWN

VERSION OF THE DARK AGES,

THAT ANY CIVILIZATION THAT

HAS GONE WHERE AMERICA IS

HEADED NOW HAS GONE TO

RUIN.

THE FOUNDERS GAVE US AN

AMAZING FOUNDATION, AND

FOR US TO TRAMPLE ON I

AND SAY WE'RE GOING TO

BUILD A NEW ONE IS FOLLY.

Reporter: THE EARLY

AMERICANS WERE SHAPED BY

THE BIBLE AND A

JUDEO-CHRISTIAN WORLD

VIEW.

THEY BELIEVED EVERY

CHRISTIAN SHOULD READ THE

BIBLE COVER TO COVER EVERY

YEAR.

TODAY WE CAN'T EVEN GET

CHRISTIANS TO READ THE

WORD.

Reporter: 30% OF

CHRISTIANS READ THE BIBLE,

AND LESS THAN 10% FROM

COVER TO COVER, AND IT

SHOWS.

ONLY 9% OF BORN-AGAIN

CHRISTIANS HAVE A BIBLICAL

WORLD VIEW.

ONLY 51% OF PASTORS HAVE A

BIBLICAL WORLD VIEW.

Reporter: IT HAS LED

TO A COMPLETE CHANGE IN

VALUES OVER 240 YEARS.

THEN SERVICE TO OTHERS

RULED THE DAY.

YOUR ORDER OF

RESPONSIBILITIES IS GOD,

COUNTRY, AND FAMILY.

THAT IS WHY THE FOUNDING

FATHERS WERE TOLD, AS

SPECIFICALLY TAUGHT IN

SCHOOLS, IF SOMEONE COMES

TO YOU AND SAYS, WE NEED

YOU TO RUN FOR OFFICE,

YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO SAY

NO.

YOU SAID, I WILL RUN.

BECAUSE, AS THEY POINT

OUT, YOUR LIFE DOESN'T

BELONG TO YOU.

Reporter: TODAY IT IS

ALL ABOUT ME.

NOW WE'RE JUST WORRIED

ABOUT COMFORT AND

EXPERIENCES AND

ENTERTAINMENT AND

SECURITY.

Reporter: THAT HAS

LED TO A WORLD OF THINGS

THAT CAN PILE UP THE KIND

OF DEBT THAT CAN KILL A

COUNTRY.

THE AVERAGE AMERICAN

FAMILY IS LOOKING USUALLY

OF A MORTGAGE DEBT OF

$130,000.

AND CREDIT CARD DEBT OF

ABOUT $21,000, AND A CAR

DEBT OF ABOUT $23,000.

WE SO FAR IN DEBT, WE

TOLERATE IT IN OTHERS.

WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW

IT WILL TAKE 107 YEARS OF

THE FULL PRODUCTION OF THE

AMERICAN TO PAY OFF THE

DEBT WE HAVE RIGHT NOW.

WE'RE AT THE POINT NOW

WHERE 60% OF AMERICANS

RECEIVE MORE FROM THE

GOVERNMENT THAN WHAT THEY

PUT IN.

YOU CAN'T SUSTAIN THAT.

Reporter: COMPARE

THAT TO WOULD THOMAS

JEFFERSON SAID.

WE CAN LIVE IN DEBT AND

EXTRAVAGANCE, BUT WE'LL BE

IN SLAVERY.

GEORGE WASHINGTON SAID

AVOID OCCASIONS OF DEBT.

QUIT SPENDING.

SO THE FOUNDING FATHERS

ARE VERY, VERY CLEAR THAT

WOULD WILL DESTROY A

NATION IS DEBT.

Reporter: WHERE DOES

THAT INDICATE AMERICA IS

HEADED?

INTO THE ASH HEAP OF

HISTORY.

Reporter: THERE WAS

THIS GATHERING OF THE

PENNSYLVANIA PASTORS'

NETWORK BECAUSE HE WANTS A

DIFFERENT OUTCOME.

GOD'S JUDGMENT ON

AMERICA, WHICH IS VERY

OBVIOUS HERE, WILL PUT US

ON OUR KNEES UNTIL WE LOOK

UP.

Reporter: THEY FOUND

IN THEIR RESEARCH OVER AND

OVER THAT CHURCH PEOPLE

ARE JUST AS GUILTY AS

THEIR GOVERNMENT AND

SECULAR PEOPLE, OF THE

SAME KIND OF BEHAVIORS

THAT ARE TAKING THE

COUNTRY DOWN.

IN A COUNTRY WHERE 70%

TO 80% SAY THEY'RE

CHRISTIAN, BUT ONLY 70%

SAY THEY BELIEVE IN THE

MORAL TRUTH.

Reporter: AND HE IS

FINDING NO SUBSTANTIVE

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

CHRISTIANS AND

NON-CHRISTIANS WHEN IT

COMES TO MOST MORAL

ISSUES.

STOP POINTING THE

FINGER AND LOOK AT

OURSELVES AND SAY, ARE WE

REALLY THE CHURCH THAT

CHRIST DIED ON THE CROSS

FOR.

WE ARE THE PROBLEM.

WE HAVE WALKED AWAY FROM

YOU, AND THE CULTURE HAS

FOLLOWED US, NOT THE OTHER

WAY AROUND.

Reporter: HE SAYS

TODAY'S AMERICANS BELIEVE

THEY'RE SMARTER THAN THE

FOUNDERS MAYBE BECAUSE OF

EDUCATION AND TECHNOLOGY,

BUT THE FOUNDERS HAD THAT

BIBLICAL FOUNDATION.

THEY DIDN'T HAVE ALL OF

THE THINGS WE THINK ARE

NECESSARY TO HAVE A

SOPHISTICATED SOCIETY

TODAY.

BUT THE KEY ISN'T

SOPHISTICATION.

IT IS LOVE AND GRACE.

UNTIL WE GET BACK TO

GOD'S PLAN, WE WILL NEVER

GET THE NATION BACK TO

WHERE IT NEEDS TO BE.

Reporter: WE THINK

WE'RE SMARTER AND WISER

THAN THOSE WHO FOUNDED THE

COUNTRY HUNDREDS OF YEARS

AGO, BUT THEY WERE SO WISE

THEY FOUNDED THE GREATEST

GENERATION ON THE EARTH,

WHILE TODAY'S GENERATION

IS WELL ON THEIR WAY TO

LOSING IT.

PAUL STRAND, REPORTING

FROM LANCASTER BIBLE

COLLEGE.

Caitlin: UP NEXT,

"THE LEGEND OF TARZAN" AND

"FINDING DORY."

WE'VE THE GOT YOUR HOLIDAY

MOVIE WRAPS AFTER THIS.

Caitlin: JULY 4th

WEEKEND IS HERE, AND YOU

MAY BE THINKING ABOUT

HEADING TO THE MOVIES.

LET'S TURN TO BOB

WALLASHEFSKI FOR SOME

FAMILY-FRIENDLY MOVIE

REVIEWS.

HE IS WITH "PLUGGED IN,"

THE ENTERTAINMENT REVIEW

DEPARTMENT AT "FOCUS ON

THE FAMILY."

THERE IS A NEW ACTION

ADVENTURE FILM ABOUT THE

LEGEND OF TARZAN.

HOW IS THAT ONE FOR

FAMILIES?

CAITLIN, THIS ONE IS

SET IN 1890, AND ACTUALLY

WE MEET TARZAN, WHO IS

JOHN CLAYTON THE THIRD.

HE IS IN ENGLAND AND HE IS

WITH HIS WIFE, JANE.

BUT SAMUEL JACKSON'S

CHARACTER COAXES HIM BACK

TO THE JUNGLE.

WE GAVE IT A THREE OUT OF

FIVE FOR

FAMILY-FRIENDLINESS.

QUITE A BIT OF VIOLENCE, A

LITTLE BIT OF LANGUAGE,

AND A LITTLE BIT OF

INAPPROPRIATE DIALOGUE.

INAPPROPRIATE DIALOGUE IS

NEVER GOOD IN ANY FILM,

BUT IT SEEMS REALLY OUT OF

PLACE IN THIS FILM, SET IN

1890.

Caitlin: DISNEY HAS A

NEW MOVIE OUT CALLED

B.F.G.," WHICH STANDS FOR

THE BIG FRIENDLY GIANT.

WHAT DID YOU THINK ABOUT

THIS ONE?

IT IS DELIGHTFUL AND

FUN.

THERE ARE NINE BIG MEAN

GIANTS AND ONE B.F.G.,

BIG-FRIENDLY GIANT, WHO

ROAMS THE STREETS OF

LONDON AT NIGHT AND HELPS

DIDISPERSE DREAMS TO

CHILDREN.

IT'S CUTE.

IT'S FUN.

IT'S NOT GOING TO CHANGE

THE WORLD, BUT IT IS

DEFINITELY A FILM TO

POSSIBLY CONSIDER TO

ESCAPE THE HOT SUMMER DAYS

AND GET TO AN AIR

CONDITIONED THEATER.

Caitlin: NOW,

"FINDING DORY," IS ALSO

STILL DOING WELL AT THE

BOX OFFICE.

GIVE US A QUICK LOWDOWN ON

THAT MOVIE AGAIN.

MY GOODNESS.

THE NUMBER ONE ANIMATED

RELEASE OF ALL TIME NOW.

I'M HAPPY TO SAY WE GAVE

THIS A PERFECT SCORE, A

FIVE OUT OF FIVE.

IT IS SIMPLY DELIGHTFUL

FOR FAMILIES.

EVEN THOUGH B.F.G. HAS

POTENTIAL FOR FAMILIES, IF

YOU HAVEN'T SEEN "FINDING

DORY," IF I HAD TO CHOOSE

BETWEEN ONE OR THE OTHER,

I WOULD DEFINITELY CHOOSE

"FINDING DORY."

Caitlin: THERE YOU

HAVE IT, BOB WALLASHEFSKI,

THANK YOU, AS ALWAYS.

Caitlin: JUST IN TIME

FOR INDEPENDENCE DAY, A

WOMAN'S SPONTANEOUS REND

DAYS ORENDITION OF THE ANTHEM

STOPPED PEOPLE IN THEIR

TRACKS.

MORE THAN 30 MILLION

PEOPLE HAVE VIEWED THE

VIDEO ONLINE.

SHE SAYS THE REASON IT HAS

REACHED SO MANY PEOPLE HAS

NOTHING TO DO WITH HER

TALENT, BUT IT IS THE WORK

OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Reporter IT DIDN'T MATTER WHAT

THE SONG WAS, BUT IT WAS

THE SPIRIT BEHIND HOW IT

WAS SONG.

WE KNOW THAT WAS THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

I HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH

IT.
