The countdown to the RNC Convention is on. We’re headed to Cleveland to check out security measures for the big event. Plus, DHS whistleblower Philp Haney details spiritual warfare taking place in the highest levels of government. And the ... ... Read Transcript


THIS WEEK ON "THE BRODY

FILE," G.O.P. CONVENTION

SECURITY, IS THE R.N.C.

REALLY READY FOR THE

15,000 PEOPLE HEADED INTO

CLEVELAND?

AND WHAT ABOUT THE

INEVITABLE PROTESTS?

WE HEAD TO THE ROCK AND

ROLL CAPITAL OF THE WORLD

TO GET ANSWERS.

A WHISTLE-BLOWER AT THE

DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND

SECURITY DETAILS SPIRITUAL

WARFARE HAPPENING IN THE

HIGHEST LEVELS OF

GOVERNMENT.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT

VERY, VERY HIGH LEVEL

BENEVOLENT KIND OF FORCES

HERE AT WORK.

MARRIAGE ADVICE FROM A

MAN WHO UNDERSTANDS

GROWING PAINS.

I'VE BEEN MARRIED TO MY

WIFE FOR 25 YEARS, WHICH

IS SOMETHING LIKE 250 IN

HOLLYWOOD YEARS.

AND A NEW APP THAT HAS

GAMERS RUSHING TO

CHURCHES.

YOU JUST PUT IT IN LIKE

THAT.

THE CHURCH LADY IS

PLAYING POKEMON GO.

"THE BRODY FILE" IS ON

ACROSS AMERICA RIGHT NOW.

*

WELCOME TO "THE BRODY

FILE."

I'M JENNIFER WISHON IN FOR

DAVID BRODY, WHO IS

CURRENTLY ZIP LINING

THROUGH THE JUNGLE --

ACTUALLY, NO, IT'S TO

FLORIDA.

IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE, BUT

THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL

CONVENTION IS JUST DAYS

AWAY.

THE ROAD TO CLEVELAND HAS

BEEN PAVED WITH UNLIKELY

EMOTIONAL AND EVEN SOME

DISTURBING BRICKS.

WE KNOW JEB BUSH ISN'T

VOTING FOR DONALD TRUMP,

BUT WHAT ABOUT OTHER

REPUBLICANS?

WILL HE BE ABLE TO UNIFY

THE PARTY.

ON A SERIOUS NOTE, THERE

ARE A LOT OF CONCERNS

SURROUNDING THE SECURITY

GOING INTO THIS YEAR'S

CONVENTION.

HERE IS WHAT WE KNOW SO

FAR: 15,000 PEOPLE WILL

DESCEND UPON THE CITY OF

CLEVELAND.

THAT NUMBER WILL INCLUDE

PROTESTORS ANXIOUS TO

VOICE THEIR OPINIONS.

A CROWD THAT SIZE,

BRIMMING WITH EMOTION,

COMBINED WITH RECENT

VIOLENT PROTESTS ACROSS

THE COUNTRY, HAS THE

CITY'S LAW ENFORCEMENT ON

THE EDGE.

AMBER C. STRONG TRAVELLED

TO CLEVELAND TO FIND OUT

IF THE CITY IS REALLY

READY FOR WHAT LIES AHEAD.@@

IT HAS BEEN A FIERY

CAMPAIGN SEASON FOR BOTH

PARTIES, WITH PROTESTORS

AT TIMES CLASHING WITH

EACH OTHER AND POLICE AT

VARIOUS POLITICAL EVENTS.

[YELLING]

Reporter: ADD IN THE

RECENT SHOOTINGS OF THE

POLICE OFFICERS IN DALLAS,

NO WONDER THERE IS TENSION

IN THE AIR HEADING INTO

THIS YEAR'S G.O.P.

CONVENTION.

THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL

COMMITTEE SAYS IT IS

CONFIDENT IN THE SECURITY

MEASURES THEY HAVE SET IN

PLACE.

WE'RE WORKING EVERY DAY

TO ENSURE THAT EVERY

PERSON DOWN HERE ATTENDING

CONVENTION IS SAFE.

Reporter: AUDREY

SCAGNILI SAYS A LOT OF

HARD WORK HAS GONE INTO

PREPARING THIS EVENT.

WE HAVE HAD A TEAM HERE

OVER A YEAR WORKING ON

PREPARING FOR THE

CONVENTION.

THAT'S EVERYTHING FROM

TRANSPORTATION AND

LOGISTICS.

Reporter: AND THAT

PREPARATION INCLUDES HOURS

OF TACTICAL TRAINING,

ALONG WITH THE CITY'S

PURCHASE OF 300 BICYCLES

TO EXPAND BIKE CONTROLS

AND EASILY NAVIGATE THE

CROWDS.

THE CLEVELAND POLICE

DEPARTMENT, THE SECURITY

SERVICE, AND THE F.B.I.,

OTHER DEPARTMENTS ACROSS

THE COUNTRY WILL HELP KEEP

THE PEACE, IF NESSARY.

BUT AFTER THE PROTESTS

THAT HAVE TURNED VIOLENT

IN BATON ROUGE AND

MINNESOTA, SOME ARE ON

EDGE.

SCREAM ABOUT TRUMP,

SCREAM ABOUT HILLARY, I

DON'T CARE, BUT DON'T

THROW STUFF AT MY GUYS.

Reporter: HE IS ALSO

THE PRESIDENT OF THE

CITY'S POLICE POLICEMEN' POLICEMEN'S

ASSOCIATION.

I'M CONCERNED WE'RE NOT

GOING TO HAVE THE NUMBERS

THAT WE SHOULD HAVE.

Reporter: LUMA SAYS

HE WAS UPSET WHEN HIS

OFFICERS' TACTICAL

EQUIPMENT CAME IN BUT

DIDN'T FIT.

HE WORKED WITH LOCAL

BUSINESSES AT THE UNION'S

EXPENSE TO GET THE GEAR

ALTERS.

AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

WILL ALSO BE ON HAND TO

WATCH FOR POTENTIAL

TERRORIST ACTIVITIES.

WHILE MOST OF THE ISSUES

SEEM TO BE RESOLVED, THERE

ARE STILL A FEW SAFETY

CONCERNS, LIKE HAVING SO

MANY PROTESTORS WITH SO

MANY DIFFERENT AGENDAS CON CON

VIRGINAGENDASCONVIRGING IN ONE PLACE.

ONE SAID, OHIO IS AN OPEN

CARRY STATE.

IF YOU FEEL THE NEED TO

HAVE A GUN TO PROTECT

YOURSELF, BE RESPONSIBLE

WITH IT.

WE'RE GOING TO TELL THEM,

WE DON'T WANT THEM TO

BRING LONG ARMS.

WE REACHED OUT TO "BLACK

LIVES MATTER" AND DIDN'T

HEAR BACK.

AND MEMBERS OF THE CITY'S

FAITH COMMUNITY ARE

PROMOTING A MESSAGE OF

CHANGE.

DR. R.A.VERNON, WHO

PASTORS CLEVELAND LARGELY

BLACK CHURCH, SAYS

ALTHOUGH HE OPPOSES

VIOLENCE, HE THINKS THE

CONVENTION COULD BE THE

PERFECT OPPORTUNITY TO

HIGHLIGHT INJUSTICE.

THE PROPHETIC PART OF

ME UNDERSTANDS WITH THE

WHOLE WORLD WATCHING, WILL

THERE EVER BE A BETTER

TIME TO POINT WHAT IS

HAPPENING TO INNOCENT

YOUNG LIVES IN AMERICA?

Reporter: VERNON ALSO

EMPHASIZES THE IMPORTANCE

OF PEACE.

JESUS IS THE PRINCE OF

PEACE.

I'M FROM CLEVELAND.

I DON'T WANT OUR CITY TO

BE THE NEXT DALLAS.

Reporter: ALL SIDES

SEEM TO AGREE ON ONE

THING: IF TROUBLE COMES,

IT WON'T BE FROM THE

PEOPLE OF CLEVELAND.

CITY OFFICIALS AND FAITH

LEADERS ARE POSITIVE

CLEVELAND RESIDENTS WILL

REMAIN PEACEFUL, NO MATTER

THEIR POLITICAL

DIFFERENCES, AND THEY'RE

HOPING OUTSIDERS WILL DO

THE SAME.

AAMBER C. STRONG REPORTING

IN CLEVELAND.

Jennifer: THE

DETECTIVE IN THAT PIECE

TOLD US ONE OF HIS BIGGEST

CONCERNS IS HOW HIS

OFFICERS WOULD RESPOND TO

THE NIGHTMARE SCENARIO OF

AN ACTIVE SHOOTER.

AND EVERY TIME THERE IS A

SHOOTING, THE GUN CONTROL

LOBBY PUSHES FOR STRICTER

GUN LAWS.

BUT NATASHA SWEET ARGUES

TAKEING GUNS OUT OF

LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS IS

NEVER THE ANSWER.

David: NATASHA, WHAT

YOU MAKING ABOUT

EVERYTHING THAT IS GOING

ON OUT HERE IN CALIFORNIA.

IT GOES TO SHOW YOU IF

YOU DON'T PAY ATTENTION TO

WHAT IS HAPPENING, THEY

CAN TAKE AWAY YOUR RIGHTS,

ESPECIALLY YOUR SECOND

AMENDMENT RIGHTS.

PEOPLE NEED TO GET

INFORMED AND PAY ATTENTION

TO WHO THEY'RE VOTING FOR.

David: LET ME ASK

YOU ABOUT THE BACKGROUND

CHECKS FOR AMMUNITION --

THINGS ARE GET CRAZIER --

THAT'S ONE OF THE WORST

IDEAS BECAUSE IT ONLY

HELPS CRIMINALS.

IT WILL BE HARDER FOR

VICTIMS, OR PEOPLE WHO

WANT TO PROTECT VIOLENCE

AGAINST THEM, TO OBTAIN

AMMUNITION IF THEY NEED

IT.

David: I WANT TO ASK

YOU A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE

SECOND AMENDMENT AND HOW

MUCH IT UNDER ATTACK HERE

IN CALIFORNIA.

WHAT IS YOUR TAKE?

IT IS SCARY HOW MUCH

THE SECOND AMENDMENT IS

UNDER ATTACK HERE IN

CALIFORNIA.

I THINK PEOPLE WHO WANT TO

PROTECT THEMSELVES, THEY

DON'T NECESSARY GO OUT AND

TELL EVERYBODY THEY WANT

TO.

IN SAN DIEGO COUNTY AND

OTHER PLACES, IT IS HARD

TO CONTAIN YOUR CONCEALED

WEAPON LICENSE.

THINGS CAN HAPPEN IN YOUR

OWN HOME.

BUT WHAT IF YOU'RE GOING

TO THE GAS STATION AT

NIGHT, AND THERE IS

SOMETHING SKETCHY GOING

ON, AND YOU HAVE NO WAY TO

PROTECT YOURSELF.

THE A AVERAGE TIME FOR LAW

ENFORCEMENT IS 17 MINUTES,

SO WHO IS GOING TO SAVE

YOU.

David: NAT SHAS NATASHA, LET

ME ASK YOU ABOUT SOME

HORROWING SESSIONS IN YOUR

LIFE THAT HAS MADE YOU A

DEFENDER OF THE SECOND

AMENDMENT.

I DIDN'T GROW UP WITH

FIREARMS, BUT I HAD

SOMEBODY BREAK INTO MY

HOME THREE DIFFERENT

TIMES.

A SINGLE WOMAN, LIVING BY

MYSELF.

I DID CALL POLICE.

AND THEY NEVER CAME.

THAT'S WHEN I REALIZED,

YOU KNOW, I NEED TO GET

ARMED.

I NEED TO LEARN HOW TO

OPERATE A FIREARM.

BECAUSE YOU CAN GO AND

JUST PURCHASE ONE, BUT I

NEED TO KNOW HOW TO USE IT

SO THAT IT CAN ACTUALLY

SAVE ME.

BECAUSE FIREARMS ARE TOOLS

THAT BE CAN LIFE-SAVING IF

YOU KNOW HOW TO OPERATE

THEM.

Jennifer: NATASHA

SUITSWEET AND DAVID BRODY IN

CALIFORNIA, THANK YOU.

> AND THEN A REMARKABLE

STORY OF A RISING TIDE

Jennifer: WELCOME

BACK TO "THE BRODY FILE."

AS I COVER THE WHITE

HOUSE, MANY PEOPLE ASK ME

WHY PRESIDENT OBAMA IS SO

PROTECTIVE OF ISLAM.

NOW A FOUNDING MEMBER OF

THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND

SECURITY IS BLOWING THIS

WHISTLE, TELLING HOW HE

WAS PUNISHED FOR

IDENTIFYING LINKS BETWEEN

ISLAM AND TERRORIST

THREATS ON U.S. SOIL.

> AFTER THE TERRORIST

ATTACK IN ORLANDO, THE

JUSTICE DEPARTMENT TRIED

TO REDACT ALL REFERENCES

THE KILLER MADE TO ISLAM

DURING THIS 9-1-1 CALL.

THAT BLUNDER ALLOWED THE

PUBLIC TO SEE THE TYPE OF

SCRUBBING THAT HAS BEEN

GOING ON BEHIND CLOSED

DOORS OF THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT FOR YEARS.

A SYSTEMATIC ERASING OF

LINKS BETWEEN ISLAM AND

TERRORISM.

ACCORDING TO PHILLIP

HANEY, A LONG TIME OFFICER

IN THE DEPARTMENT OF

HOMELAND SECURITY.

THEY TOLD ME, WE WANT

YOU TO ELIMINATE -- THE

WORD WAS "MODIFY" -- ALL

OF THE LINKING INFORMATION

IN ABOUT 850 RECORDS I PUT

INTO THIS SYSTEM ONUESS

WHAT GROUP?

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.

Jennifer: THAT WAS IN

2009, ONE YEAR AFTER

PRESIDENT OBAMA WAS

ELECTED.

HANEY AS OBAMA RELIED ON

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD AND

OTHER ISLAMIC GROUPS WITH

TIES TO TERRORISM TO CRAFT

U.S. POLICY.

AND IN 2012, IT

HAPPENED AGAIN.

THIS TIME THEY DIDN'T JUST

MODIFY THE MOTIVATION IN INFORMATION IN

THE RECORDS.

THEY COMPLETELY ELIMINATED

THEM OUT OF THE SYSTEM,

ERASED THEM FOREVER.

AND THEY INVESTIGATED ME

FOR PUTTING THAT

INFORMATION INTO THE

SYSTEM, WHEN THAT'S

EXACTLY THE JOB THAT I WAS

SUPPOSED TO BE DOING.

Jennifer: HE HAS BEEN

INVESTIGATED NINE TIMES.

AT ONE POINT HE WAS PICKED

APART BY THREE FEDERAL

AGENCIES AT ONCE.

HANEY WAS EXONERATED, BUT

THROUGH HIS EXPERIENCES

CAME TO REALIZE SPIRITUAL

WARFARE IS TAKING PLACE AT

THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF

GOVERNMENT.

I CAN'T EXPLAIN TO YOU

THE IDEOLOGY OR THE WORLD

VIEW OF THIS

ADMINISTRATION.

IT MAKES THEM SO ADAMANT

TO PROTECT ISLAM FROM HARM

BY ADDRESSING IT IN IT' ITS

TRUE NATURE.

Jennifer: HOW HAS

YOUR CHRISTIAN FAITH

HELPED YOU GET THROUGH ALL

OF THIS?

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT

VERY, VERY HIGH LEVEL BEN MAL

BENEVOLENT FORCES HERE.

IT IS VERY SOBERING TO SEE

THESE KINDS OF THINGS

OPERATING.

THESE ARE BIBLICAL LEVEL

EVENTS THAT WE'RE TALKING

ABOUT.

Jennifer: HIS BOOK,

"SEE SOMETHING, SAY

NOTHING," DETAILS HIS

TUMULTUOUS TIME AT THE

DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND

SECURITY.

AFTER LIVING IN THE MIDDLE

EAST AND STUDYING

TERRORISM, HANEY BELIEVES

JIHAD IS A TACTIC RADICAL

MUSLIMS ARE USING TO

ACHIEVE THEIR GOAL OF

IMPLEMENTING SHAR'IA LAW

IN THE U.S., EUROPE, AND

AROUND THE WORLD.

THE POWER OF SHAR'IA IS

VERY DIFFICULT TO

EXAGGERATE, HOW MUCH

INFLUENCE IT HAS ON THE

LIVES OF MUSLIMS AROUND

THE WORLD.

Jennifer: YOU SAY

THIS IS A BATTLE BETWEEN

THE CONSTITUTION AND

SHAR'IA LAW?

ARE WE GOING TO SUBMIT

TO THE INFLUENCE OF

SHAR'IA LAW, AND MAKE IT

LEGAL FOR ONE PARTICULAR

RELIGION TO HAVE MORE THAN

ONE WIFE?

OR ARE WE GOING TO SAY,

NO, YOU CANNOT IMPLEMENT

THOSE PROVISIONS, AS LONG

AS YOU WANT TO BE A

CITIZEN OF THE UNITED

STATES.

Jennifer: WHAT

AMERICA NEEDS, HE SAYS, IS

TO FOCUS ON THE

CONSTITUTION.

IF YOU BECOME MORE

FAMILIAR WITH THE

CONSTITUTION, YOU'LL BE

ABLE TO SEE MORE CLEARLY

THE POINTS OF CONTACT, OR

CONFLICT, BETWEEN THE U.S.

CONSTITUTION AND SHAR'IA

LAW.

AND THEN YOU CAN DISCUSS

IT WITHOUT FEAR OF BEING

CALLED A RACIST OR A BIGOT

OR AN ISLAMOPHOBE.

Jennifer: IT IS TRULY

A REMARKABLE STORY THAT

PHILLIP HANEY IS NOW

SHARING ACROSS THE

COUNTRY.

> COMING UP ON "THE

BRODY FILE," POKEMON

HYSTERIA.

WHY A GAME IS SENDING

PEOPLE TO CHURCHES ACROSS

AMERICA.

HALLELUJAH.

Jennifer: WELCOME

BACK TO "THE BRODY FILE."

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ARE

PLAYING THE NEW POKEMON GO

GAME.

EVEN "THE BRODY FILE" CREW

IS TRYING TO PLAY IT.

FIRST WE NEEDED A LITTLE

HELP UNDERSTANDING IT.

TRACY WINBORN BREAKS IT

DOWN FOR US.

* OH, MY LORD

* MY SWEET LORD

Reporter: THANKS,

JENNIFER.

POKEMON GO IS A GLOBAL

CRAZE AND IT IS CHANGING

OUR LIVES WITH A SIMPLE

APP ON OUR SMARTPHONES.

WHAT I LIKE ABOUT IT IS

GAME-MAKERS HAVE FOUND A

CREATIVE WAY TO GET PEOPLE

TO GO TO CHURCH.

WAKE UP!

LOOK AT THE CHURCH SIGN

AT THE ASSEMBLY OF GOD IN

FLORIDA.

WE ARE A POKI STOP.

THIS CHURCH AND MANY OTHER

LANDMARKS ARE NOW POKI

STOPS.

BUT, WAIT.

WHAT EXACTLY IS A POKI

STOP?

TO FIND OUT, I ASKED

13-YEAR-OLD GAMING EXPERT

AND STRAIGHT "A" STUDENT,

PATRICK LEW, FOR A BREAK

DOWN.

YOU GO TO THE POKI

STOP, AND THERE WILL BE A

CIRCLE, AND IT DROPS

RANDOM ITEMS, LIKE

RASPBERRIES, WHICH

INCREASES YOUR CHANCE OF

TOUCHING POKEMON

SUCCESSFULLY.

Reporter: NOW, YOU

DON'T HAVE TO GO INSIDE TO

USE THE POKI STOP TO GET

SUPPLIES.

JUST GET ON OR NEAR THE

PROPERTY.

IMAGINE YOU'RE GOING ON A

VIRTUAL SCAVENGER HUNT OF

SORTS.

THE GAME USES THE G.P.S.

ON YOUR SMARTPHONE.

THE GOAL: TO CATCH AS MANY

POKEMON AS YOU CAN, AND

BECOME THE BEST POKEMON

TRAINER AROUND.

ONCE I DOWNLOADED THE APP,

I SPOTTED MY VERY FIRST

POKEMON, RIGHT HERE IN THE

CHURCH PARKING LOT, JUST

OUTSIDE THE NATION'S

CAPITAL.

OH, YOU MISSED.

I MISSED?

OKAY, SO APPARENTLY IT IS

NOT AS EASY AS IT LOOKS.

PATRICK TELLS ME THERE ARE

ALWAYS POKEMON GYMS, WHERE

YOU GO TO BATTLE OTHER 

PLAYERS.

JUST FIND IT ON THE APP.

LOOK, HERE IS ONE AT THIS

PARK SIGN, NEXT TO THE

CHURCH.

IT IS ALSO NEXT TO A

CEMETERY.

POKEMON GO IS SO POPULAR,

IT IS EXPECTED TO OVERTAKE

TWITTER'S 65 MILLION

AMERICAN USERS.

I ONLY PLANNED ON

PLAYING IT, LIKE, ONCE IN

A WHILE, BUT IT GOT REALLY

ADDICTING.

Reporter: THE GAME'S

POPULARITY HAS TURNED INTO

A MINISTRY OPPORTUNITY.

ACCORDING TO ONE SURVEY,

82% OF CHURCHES HAVE

REPORTED AN INCREASE IN

ATTENDANCE.

SO ARE PEOPLE REALLY GOING

TO CHURCH JUST TO CATCH

POKEMON?

SHE SAYS, THIS GAME IS

TRYING TO MAKE ME GO TO

CHURCH.

AND CHRIS MARTIN TWEETS,

HOW DO YOU GET SIX 20

SOMETHING GUYS TO SIT ON

THE STEPS OF YOUR CHURCH?

YOUR CHURCH IS A GYM.

NOT EVERYONE IS LAUGHING,

THOUGH, THAT GAME-MAKERS

CHOSE THEM WITH POKI

THOUGHTS AGAINST THEIR

WILL.

AT THE HOLOCAUST MUSEUM,

THE COMMUNICATIONS

DIRECTOR TOLD THE POST,

PLAYING THE GAME IS NOT

APPROPRIATE AT AT THE

MEMORIAL.

THEN THERE ARE SAFETY

CONCERNS.

DON'T POKEMON AND DRIVE.

MULTIPLE SIGHTINGS ARE

REPORTED OF PEOPLE

SEARCHING FOR POKEMON AND

NOT PAYING ATTENTION TO

WHERE THEY ARE GOING.

REGARDLESS OF THESE SAFETY

CONCERNS, SOME PARENTS SAY

AT LEAST THEIR CHILDREN

ARE OUTSIDE AND

EXERCISING.

NOW, I CALLED CHURCHES IN

MY AREA THAT ARE POKI

STOPS, BUT THEY HAD NO

IDEA THEY WERE EVEN IN THE

GAME UNTIL I TOLD THEM.

THEY ALSO DECLINED TO

COMMENT.

LOOKS LIKE THESE CHURCHES

HAVE A LOT TO THINK ABOUT.

Jennifer: WE CAN

ALWAYS COUNT ON THE CHURCH

LADY.

THANKS, TRACY.

> COMING UP ON "THE

BRODY FILE," A HOLLYWOOD

ACTOR WHO HAS BEEN MARRIED

FOR A QUARTER OF A

CENTURY, IF YOU CAN

BELIEVE THAT, AND HE

EXPLAINS HOW A MAN SHOULD

LOVE A WOMAN.

Jerry: WELCOME BACK

Jennifer: WELCOME

BACK TO "THE BRODY FILE."

YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED THAT

AMERICAN CULTURE IS

CHANGING DRAMATICALLY.

GET THIS, THERE IS AT

LEAST ONE MAN IN HOLLYWOOD

WHO UNDERSTANDS BOTH THE

PROBLEM AND THE SOLUTION.

DAVID BRODY SAT DOWN WITH

ACTOR KIRK CAMERON AND HAS

MORE.

David: LET ME ASK

YOU ABOUT THE CULTURE AND

THE SLIDE.

WE'RE TALKING TRANSGENDER

BATHROOMS AND ALL OF THAT.

WHAT IS YOUR TAKE ON WHAT

IS HAPPENING IN AMERICA

TODAY?

AND KIND OF WHAT DO WE DO

AS AMERICANS, AS

CHRISTIANS, HERE IN THIS

SOCIETY TO KIND OF FIGHT

BACK?

WHAT DO WE DO, EXACTLY?

THERE ARE SUCH THINGS

AS RIGHT AND WRONG.

THERE ARE SUCH THINGS AS

GOOD AND EVIL.

THERE ARE SUCH THINGS AND

DISTINCTIONS THAT GOD HAS

MADE THAT CANNOT BE

ALTERED AND CANNOT BE

CHANGED.

I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS

WE SEE AS EVIDENCE OF A

DETERIORATING CULTURE IS

WHEN PEOPLE START TO PLAY

THE ROLE OF GOD IN THEIR

OWN SOCIETY.

AND THEY BEGIN TO REDEFINE

CATEGORIES.

AND THEY SAY GOOD IS EVIL,

AND EVIL IS GOOD.

AND THEY SAY RIGHT IS

WRONG, AND WRONG IS RIGHT.

WE'RE SEEING THAT IN OUR

CULTURE IN SO MANY

DIFFERENT CATEGORIES.

AND THE TRUTH IS THAT THE

ROLE OF PASTOR IN THE

PULPIT IS THE MOST

POWERFUL WEAPON AGAINST

CULTURE DETERIORATION IN

AMERICA.

BECAUSE AMERICA HAS A

CHRISTIAN ROOT.

IT HAS A JUDEO-CHRISTIAN

D.N.A. THAT IS DEEP IN THE

HEARTS OF THE PEOPLE.

IT GOES BACK 400 YEARS TO

THE PILGRIMS.

AND IF PASTORS WILL DO

WHAT THEY WERE ENCOURAGED

TO DO TONIGHT, AND THAT IS

PREACH THE WORDS, SPEAK

THE WORDS OF GOD, DECLARE

THE DISTINCTIONS BETWEEN

GOOD AND EVIL AND FIRE UP

THE HEARTS OF THE PEOPLE

IN THE PEWS, WE CAN BEGIN

HEALING AMERICA FROM THE

BOTTOM OF AND THE INSIDE

OUT.

David: AND I WOULD

THINK PART OF THE D.N.A.

HERE IS THE FAMILY, THIS

IDEA THAT PROGRESSIVES AND

LIBERALS -- AND FORGET THE

LABELS FOR A MOMENT, BUT

THERE IS A DECONSTRUCTION

OF THE FAMILY IN AMERICAN

SOCIETY TODAY.

I GET THE SENSE THAT THE

LORD HAS PUT YOU ON THE

FRONT LINES OF THAT.

TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT

MARRIAGE AND HOW IMPORTANT

MALE AND FEMALE AND THE

FAMILY IS IN TODAY'S

CULTURE.

I'VE BEEN MARRIED TO MY

WIFE FOR 25 YEARS, WHICH

IS SOMETHING LIKE 250 IN

HOLLYWOOD YEARS, RIGHT?

AND THE BEST ADVICE I'VE

EVER BEEN GIVEN ON THE

SUBJECT OF A HEALTHY,

HAPPY MARRIAGE, COMES FROM

GOD'S WORD.

AND GOD HAS TOLD ME, AS A

HUSBAND, THAT FOR ME TO BE

A GODLY MAN, I AM TO BE,

TO MY WIFE, LIKE CHRIST

WAS AND IS TO HIS BRIDE,

THE CHURCH.

AND THAT IS TO LOVE YOUR

WIFE IN SUCH A WAY THAT

YOU DENY YOURSELF, THAT

YOU SEEK TO SERVE RATHER

THAN BE SERVED, THAT YOU

ARE WILLING TO LAY DOWN

YOUR LIFE FOR HER, AND

LOVE HER AS YOUR OWN BODY,

GOD'S WORD SAYS, AND CARE

FOR AND NOURISH HER.

THAT'S A TALL ORDER.

THAT'S A PICTURE OF

SELF-SACRIFICING SERVICE.

AND WHEN CHRIST DID THAT

FOR HIS BRIDE, THAT, IN

EFFECT, MADE HER BLOSSOM

AND BLOOM, AND BROUGHT HER

INTO ALL OF THE GLORIOUS

BEAUTY THAT SHE WAS

CREATED TO BE.

AND HE TREASURES HER AS

THE ONE THAT HE DIED FOR,

TO BE WITH HER FOREVER AND

FOR ALL ETERNITY.

AND WHEN THE WORLD GETS AN

UNDERSTANDING -- WHEN

CHRISTIANS GET AN

UNDERSTANDING OF MARRIAGE

FROM GOD'S PERSPECTIVE,

AND WE SEEK TO ATTAIN THAT

KIND OF TRUTH, THAT KIND

OF GOODNESS, THAT KIND OF

PURPOSE, AND THAT KIND OF

BEAUTY, THAT WILL CHANGE

OUR CHURCHES.

THAT WILL CHANGE OUR

COMMUNITIES.

THAT WILL CHANGE OUR

COUNTIES, OR STATES, AND

OUR NATION.

AND AMERICA, I BELIEVE,

DOES NOT HAVE TO RESIGN

ITSELF TO CULTURAL

DETERIORATION.

IF WE'LL GET IT RIGHT AT

THE DINNER TABLE, WITH OUR

CHILDREN, BY BEING GODLY

MEN AND WOMEN IN OUR

HOMES, WE CAN SEE THE BEST

DAYS OF AMERICA AHEAD OF

US.

Jennifer: VERY WISE

WORDS.

DAVID BRODY, FOLKS, WITH

ACTOR KIRK CAMERON.

> STAY WITH US.

Jennifer: WELCOME

BACK, FOLKS.

THANKS FOR WATCHING "THE

BRODY FILE."

IT IS ALWAYS A FUN RIDE.

HEY, FOR NEWS FROM THE

WHITE HOUSE FROM A

CHRISTIAN PERSPECTIVE,

CONVENTION IN CLEVELAND.
