I'M CAITLIN BURKE.

THE ISLAMIC TERROR GROUP,

ISIS, IS LOSING STRATEGIC

STRONGHOLDS IN SYRIA AND

IRAQ, BUT DESPITE THE

LOSSES, ISIS IS SPREADING

AROUND THE WORLD, AND ITS

CAPABILITIES ARE BECOMING

DEADLIER AND MORE

FREQUENT.

PRESIDENT OBAMA MET WITH

HIS TOP NATIONAL SECURITY

OFFICIALS ON WEDNESDAY,

AND SAYS THE WEST SHOULD

PRAPREPARE FOR MORE ATTACKS.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT SAYS WHILE ISIS

HAS BEEN LOSING LAND IN

IRAQ AND SYRIA, THE GROUP

IS WORKING ON LAUNCHING

TERRORIST ATTACKS AROUND

THE WORLD.

President Obama: IN

FACT, THE DECLINE OF ISIL

IN SYRIA AND IRAQ APPEARS

TO BE CAUSING IT TO SHIFT

TO TACTICS THAT WE'VE SEEN

BEFORE.

AND AN EVEN GREATER

EMPHASIS ON ENCOURAGING

HIGH-PROFILE TERRORIST

ATTACKS.

George: AND PART OF

THAT SHIFT IS TO TARGET

GERMAN.

A FORMER ISIS FIGHTER NOW

IN PRISON TOLD THE "NEW

YORK TIMES" THAT THE

TERROR GROUP IS

INSTRUCTING EUROPEAN

JIHADIS NOT TO COME TO

SYRIA ANYMORE, BUT,

INSTEAD, STAY HOME AND

LAUNCH WAVES OF ATTACKS IN

BRITAIN, GERMANY, AND

FRANCE.

President Obama: EVEN

AS WE NEED TO CRUSH ISIL

ON THE BATTLE FIELD, THEIR

MILITARY DEFEAT WILL NOT

BE ENOUGH.

AS LONG AS THEY PI PERSIST

AND DRIVE PEOPLE TO

VIOLENCE, GROUPS LIKE ISIL

WILL KEEP EMERGING.

George: AND THE

ATTACKS ARE GETTING

DEADLIER AND MORE

FREQUENT.

A NEW REPORT FROM THE

HOMELAND SECURITY

COMMITTEE FOUND THAT SINCE

2014, THERE HAVE BEEN 1600

CEARKT1600CASUALTIES RELATED TO

ISIS.

President Obama: IT

IS STILL VERY DIFFICULT TO

PREVENT LONE ACTORS OR

SMALL CELLS WHO ARE

DETERMINED TO KILL THE

INNOCENT AND WHO ARE

WILLING TO DIE.

George: ISIS CLAIMED

RESPONSIBILITY FOR A

NUMBER OF MASS KILLINGS,

INCLUDING A TRUCK ATTACK

IN NICE, FRANCE, WHICH LED

84 DEAD, AND THE NIGHTCLUB

SHOOTING IN ORLANDO,

FLORIDA, THAT KILLED 39

PEOPLE.

THESE AND OTHER ATTACKS

SHOW THAT THEIR LONG-HELD

GOAL TO SPREAD BEYOND

SYRIA AND IRAQ IS BECOMING

A REALITY.

MORE THAN TWO YEARS AFT AFTER

U.S. ON COALITION FORCES

STARTED THE WAR AGAINST

ISIS, THEY ARE SPREADING

THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.

ISIS BRANCHES ARE NOW

OPERATING IN 18 OTHER

COUNTRIES, LEADING THE

CENTER'S DIRECTOR TO MAKE

THIS STARK ASSESSMENT: THE

ARRAY OF TERRORIST ACTORS

AROUND THE GLOBE IS

BROADER, WIDER, AND DEEPER

THAN IT HAS EVER BEEN THAN

ANY TIME SINCE

SEPTEMBER 11TH, 2001.

WE FACE MORE THREATS THAN

WE HAVE AT ANY TIME IN THE

PAST 15 YEARS.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS.

Caitlin: ISRAEL'S

INTERNAL AGENCY SAYS A

HAMAS GROUP INFILTRATED

WORLD VISION IN GAZA.

THE MAN, WHO WAS A

MANAGER, SIPHONED OFF MORE

THAN $40 MILLION FOR THE

TERRORIST GROUP, HAMAS.

MOST OF THE MONEY WAS

DONATED BY CHRISTIANS

AROUND THE WORLD.

60% OF THE GAZA BUDGET WAS

MEANT FOR ROCKETS AND TO

DIG TUNNELS AND TO FUND

OTHER PROJECTS.

THEY WERE SHOCKED BY THE

CHARGES AGAINST ITS

MANAGER.

AND WORLD VISION REJECTED

ANY INVOLVEMENT IN ANY

POLITICAL, MILITARY, OR

TERROR ACTIVITIES.

> THE TERRORIST WHO

STARTED THE BOKO HARAM IN

AFRICA SAYS HE IS STILL

THE LEADER.

THE ISLAMIC STATE ON

WEDNESDAY ANNOUNCED THEY

HAD PICKED A NEW LEADER

FOR THE GROUP.

BUT ABBU SACAR SAYS HE IS

NOT GOING ANYWHERE.

HE CRITICIZED THE NEW

LEADER, CALLING HIM AN IN

INFIDEL BECAUSE HE

PROMISED TO END ATTACKS ON

MUSLIM MARKETS, A HALLMARK

OF BROKE HARTFORD.

BOKO HARAM.

> HOW CAN REPUBLICANS

GET DONALD TO FOCUS ON

THEIR MESSAGE.

AND WHAT ABOUT THAT CASH

PAYMENT TO IRAN ON THE

SAME DAY AMERICANS WERE

RELEASED.

MIKE PENCE ADDRESSED THOSE

ISSUES DURING CAMPAIGN

STOPS IN VIRGINIA

THURSDAY.

ONE OF THOSE RALLIES WAS

RIGHT HERE ON THE CBN

CAMPUS AT FOUNDERS' INN.

GARY LANE BRINGS US THE

STORY.

Reporter: THE

REPUBLICAN VICE

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE

KNEW HIS AUDIENCE, AND IT

DIDN'T TAKE LONG FOR HIM

TO TAKE KNOWLEDGE OF THOSE

WHO SERVED.

FOR THOSE WHO HAVE WORN

THE UNIFORM OF THE UNITED

STATES OF AMERICA'S

MILITARY, PLEASE STAND UP

AND ALLOW US TO SAY THANK

YOU ONE MORE TIME FOR YOUR

SERVICE.

Reporter: AND HE

TALKED ABOUT THE U.S.

ECONOMY, SAYING IT ONLY

GREW 1.2% OVER PRESIDENT

OBAMA.

UNDER PRESIDENT OBAMA,

AMERICA IS EXPERIENCING

ITS WEAKEST RECOVERY SINCE

1949.

THEY SAY IT IS THE BEST

WE CAN DO.

BUT DONALD TRUMP KNOW

THIS: IT IS NOT THE BEST

WE CAN DO.

IT IS JUST THE BEST THEY

CAN DO.

Reporter: AND HE

CRITICIZED HILLARY CLINTON

FOR THE WAY SHE HANDLED

THE TERROR ATTACK IN

BENGHAZI.

AFTER FOUR AMERICANS

FELL, HILLARY CLINTON

SAID, AT THIS POINT, WHAT

DIFFERENCE DO IT MAKE?

AS A PROUD FATHER OF A

UNITED STATES MARINE, LET

ME SAY, ANYONE WHO SAID

THAT, ANYONE WHO DID THAT,

SHOULD BE DISQUALIFIED

FROM SERVING AT COMMANDER

IN CHIEF OF THE ARMED

FORCES OF THE UNITED

STATES OF VIRGINIA.

Reporter: VIRGINIA IS

A KEY BATTLEGROUND, AND

THAT'S WHY HILLARY CLINTON

CHOSE TIM KAINE TO BE HER

RUNNING MATE.

I TALKED TO THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY FOR THE STATE OF

VIRGINIA, AND HE SAYS THAT

IS NOT GOING TO DO

ANYTHING.

TIM KAINE IS SEEN AS A

FAILED GOVERNOR.

WE LOST TENS OF THOUSANDS

OF MANUFACTURING JOBS WHEN

TIM KAINE WAS GOVERNOR.

Reporter: I ASKED

PENCE ABOUT AMERICA'S

$400 MILLION PAYMENT TO

IRAN ON THE SAME DAY

AMERICANS WERE RELEASED.

I THINK IN DOING THAT,

THEY PUT A PRICE TAG ON

EVERY AMERICAN HEAD AROUND

THE WORLD.

IT JEOPARDIZES AMERICAN

CITIZENS AND JEOPARDIZES

OUR ALLIES.

Reporter: AND I/ ASKED

ABOUT REPORTEDLY

REPUBLICAN PARTY DISUNITY,

AND HIS ENDORSEMENT OF

PAUL RYAN.

AS DONALD TRUMP SAID HE

IS NOT THERE YET.

IS IT COMING?

I BELIEVE AS TIME GOES

ON, YOU'RE GOING TO SEE

THESE TWO MEN COME

TOGETHER AND WORK

TOGETHER.

Reporter: SOME

REPUBLICANS SAY TRUMP

NEEDS TO WORK HARDER,

LIMITING HIS COMMENTS TO

HILLARY CLINTON'S RECORD

AND HIS PLANS TO BRING

ABOUT CHANGE TO THE OBAMA

YEARS.

> HOW DO YOU GET HIM ON

MESSAGE?

LOOK, DONALD TRUMP IS A

MAN WHO HAS SPOKEN FROM

HIS HEART AND MIND FROM

THE VERY OUTSET OF THIS

CAMPAIGN.

HE HAS MADE A CONNECTION

WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE,

THE LIKES OF WHICH I

HAVEN'T SEEN SINCE RONALD

REAGAN.

Reporter: BUT RONALD

REAGAN WAS A FORMER ACTOR,

WHO STUCK TO THE SCRIPT.

BUT SOME WORRY THAT

GETTING TRUMP TO DO THE

SAME, WHILE STILL ALLOWING

TRUMP TO BE TRUMP, MAY BE

THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE IN

THE DAYS AHEAD.

Reporter: DONALD

TRUMP SAYS MINISTERS

SHOULD BE ABLE TO SPEAK

OUT ABOUT POLITICS WITHOUT

JEOPARDIZING THEIR CHURCH

TAX EXEMPT.

HE PLEDGED TO ELIMINATE

THE BAN ON PULPIT POLITICS

POLITICS.

TRUMP CALLS THE

PROHIBITION A VIOLATION OF

FREE SPEECH.

> THIS WEEK WE TOLD YOU

ABOUT THE SATANIC TEMPLE

PUSHING FOR AFTER-SCHOOL

SATAN CLUBS FOR KIDS.

NOW AN CHILDREN FOR CHILD

EVANGELISM FELLOWSHIP IS

FIGHTING BACK.

LIBERTY COUNCIL CHAIRMAN

MATT STAVERS CALLING THE

GOAL DISRUPTIVE, RATHER

THAN EDUCATIONAL.

AND PARENTS AREN'T HAPPY

ABOUT THE PROPOSAL,

EITHER.

WE HAVE ENOUGH PROBLEMS

IN THE WORLD, TO ENCOURAGE

THE KIDS TO ACTUALLY TAKE

ON THIS ATTITUDE IS

ABSOLUTELY NOT ACCEPTABLE.

SATAN -- YOU KNOW, HIS

THING IS EVIL.

AND EVIL IS THE ABSENCE OF

GOOD AND LOVE.

AND WE'RE TRYING TO

ENCOURAGE GOODNESS AND

LOVE IN OUR CHILDREN,

ESPECIALLY IN ELEMENTARY

AND OTHER SCHOOLS AROUND

THIS AREA.

Reporter: STAVER SAYS

LIBERTY COUNCIL WILL

DEFEND DISTRICTS.

AND SAYS PARENTAL

PERMISSION IS REQUIRED FOR

CHILDREN TO PARTICIPATE IN

AFTER-SCHOOL CLUBS, AND HE

DOUBTS MANY PARENTS WOULD

LET THEIR CHILDREN JOIN

SATAN CLUBS.

CHURCHES ARE BEING

TARGETED BY CHIEFS IN ONE

OKLAHOMA TOWN.

AT LEAST 13 CHURCHES IN

ENOD HAVE BEEN ROBBED

SINCE JULY.

DURING MOST OF THESE

BURGLARIES, THEY'RE

LOOKING SPECIFICALLY FOR

MONEY.

Reporter: FOUR

CHURCHES WERE ROBBED THIS

WEEK ALONE, AND THE

THIEVES KICKING IN DOORS,

STEALING BANK BAGS AND

LOCK BOXES.

THE POLICE ARE HELPING FOR

THE PUBLIC'S HELP TO STOP

THE BURGLARY SPREE.

> COMING UP, WHATNOT TO

SAY WHEN SOMEONE HAS

CANCER.

SEE HOW ONE CHURCH IS

TEACHING PEOPLE TO

MINISTER TO PERISHERS WITH

CANCER, AFTER THIS.

Caitlin: IT'S A WORD

NO ONE WANTS TO HEAR,

CANCER.

YET STATISTICS SHOW HALF

OF ALL MEN AND A THIRD OF

ALL WOMEN WILL GET SOME

FORM OF THE DISEASE.

IN MANY CASES, PEOPLE

SIMPLY SUFFER IN SILENCE

AS THEY TRY TO COPE WITH

THEIR ILLNESS.

NOW AS LORIE JOHNSON

REPORTS, AN ORGANIZATION

IS TEACHING CHURCHES HOW

TO HELP CANCER PATIENTS.

HELLO, SHEILA.

HOW ARE YOU YOU, DEAR?

GOOD TO SEE YOU.

Lorie: AFTER YEARS OF

COUNSELLING CANCER

PATIENT, THIS REVEREND

KNOWS THEY BEAR A BURDEN

ON PEOPLE FIGHTING OTHER

ILLNESSES.

MOSTLY CANCER PATIENTS,

PARTICULARLY PEOPLE OF

FAITH, ARE STRUGGLING WITH

THEIR FAITH AT THIS POINT.

WHAT DID I DO WRONG?

Lorie: THANKS TO HIS

TRAINING, REVEREND MCCRAY

KNOWS THE IMPORTANCE OF

ENCOURAGEMENT.

AND ONE CONVERSATION

HELPED HIM REALIZE OTHER

PEOPLE NEED TO LEARN THESE

SKILLS, TOO.

THE PATIENTS SHARED

WITH ME THAT THEY WERE

IMPACTED MORE ABOUT THE

BEDSIDE TREATMENT THAN THE

TREATMENT AT THE CHURCH.

Lorie: CHURCHES HELP

PEOPLE WITH FINANCIAL AND

MARITAL, BUT OFTEN FALL

SHORT WHEN IT COMES TO

DEALING WITH HEALTH CARE

ISSUES, ESPECIALLY CANCER.

AND THEREFORE THEY

REALLY STRUGGLE WITH WHAT

DO I SAY, WHEN DO I SAY

IT, HOW DO I SAY IT?

AND ONE OF THE NUMBER ONE

DYNAMICS THAT TAKES PLACE

WITH THE CANCER PATIENT

AND THEIR CARE-GIVER, THEY

BEGIN TO FEEL A SENSE OF

ISOLATION.

Lorie: TO BRIDGE THIS

GAP, REVEREND MCCRAY AND

HIS ASSOCIATES AT THE

CANCER TREATMENT CENTERS

OF AMERICA APPROACH

CHURCHES ABOUT TEACHING

THEIR MEMBERS ABOUT HOW TO

MINISTER TO THEIR BROTHERS

AND SISTERS WITH CANCER.

IT IS CALLED "OUR JOURNEY

OF HOPE."

CANCER TREATMENT CENTERS

OF AMERICA OFFERS FREE

TRAINING FOR TWO PEOPLE

FROM A CHURCH WHO USE WHAT

THEY LEARN HERE TO RAISE

UP CANCER MINISTRIES IN

THEIR HOME CONGREGATIONS.

THEY LEARN THE BASIC OF

THE DISEASE AND TREATMENTS

IN ORDER TO FOCUS ON WHAT

IT'S LIKE FOR THE PATIENT.

AN ADDED INCENTIVE FOR

CHURCHES, THE TRAINING,

FOOD, LODGING, AND EVEN

THE COURSE MATERIALS ARE

ALL FREE.

WE DID NOT WANT TO

LIMIT THE ABILITY TO HAVE

THE AVERAGE CHURCH RECEIVE

THIS TRAINING BECAUSE OF

LACK OF RESOURCES.

Lorie: LUWANDA LONG

ATTENDED THE TEACHING

SEVERAL YEARS AGO, AND NOW

PASSES ON WHAT SHE

LEARNED.

WHEN WE STARTED OUT, I

WANT TO SAY WE STARTED OUT

WITH 12 OR 15 FOLKS.

AND ALL OF THEM HAD A

PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH

CANCER.

EITHER THEY WERE A CANCER

SURVIVOR OR CARE-GIVER OF

A CANCER PATIENT.

Lorie: SHE TEACHES

VOLUNTEERS ONE NIGHT A

WEEK FOR EIGHT WEEKS, TO

PREPARE THEM TO MEET WITH

CANCER PATIENTS IN THEIR

CHURCH.

SOMETIMES PEOPLE DON'T

KNOW TO SAY TO PEOPLE

BATTLING WITH CANCER.

SOMETIMES THEY WILL SAY,

OH, I HAD A LOVED ONE WHO

HAD THAT SAME CANCER AND

THEY DIED.

I THINK THE MAIN THING WE

TRY TO TRAIN PEOPLE IS TO

HAVE EMPATHY TO LISTEN, TO

THE NOT TRY TO FIX IT, BUT

JUST TO BE THERE.

TO REALIZE THAT GOD IS

EVERYWHERE.

AND GOD WILL HAVE A

WITNESS IN EVERY

SITUATION.

Lorie: SO FAR THE

MINISTRY IS A SUCCESS.

A HO LOT OF TIMES PEOPLE

DON'T UNDERSTAND THE

IMPACT CANCER DOES TO A

FAMILY AND TO A PERSON.

IT IS MORE THAN JUST A

PHYSICAL DETRIMENT.

IT ATTACKS THEIR SPIRIT

AND ATTACKS THEIR SOUL.

Reporter: LISA

MCDERMOTT REMEMBERS

SUFFERING THROUGH FIVE

MONTHS OF CHEMICAL THERAPY

FOR BREAST CANCER.

FOR ME IT WAS STRICTLY

FATIGUE.

I JUST COULD NOT GET OFF

THE COUCH.

JUST DOWN.

Reporter: SHE ASKED

THE CANCER MINISTRY FOR

HELP WITH DAILY NEEDS.

IT MAKES A REAL

DIFFERENCE WHEN YOU'RE

JUST TOO SICK TO DO

ANYTHING.

YOU DON'T FEEL WELL.

YOU DON'T WANT TO DO THE

DISHES.

YOU'VE GOT GROCERIES TO

GET AND YOU DON'T WANT TO

DRIVE ANYWHERE.

IT IS A GREAT MINISTRY.

Lorie: LISA DEALT

WITH ONE MAIN-POINT PERSON

WHO RECRUITED OTHERS TO

PITCH IN.

EVERYTHING MAKES A

DIFFERENCE.

PHONE CALLS, CARDS,

LETTERS -- JUST TO KNOW

THAT PEOPLE ARE THINKING

ABOUT ME, PRAYING FOR ME,

CARING ABOUT ME.

Lorie: THE CANCER

MINISTRY MADE SUCH AN

IMPRESSION, THAT LISA

WANTED TO GET THE

TRAINING.

WE PUT PACKAGES

TOGETHER FOR EVERYONE WE

FIND OUT ABOUT THAT IS

REFERRED TO US, CARE

PACKAGES FOR THEM ALL.

I GOT ONE, TOO.

IT WAS VERY NICE, WITH ALL

KINDS OF THINGS IN A

LITTLE CARE PACKAGE.

BOOKS AND JOURNALS AND

SOCKS TO KEEP WARM,

HATS -- ALL KINDS OF

THINGS, BEAUTIFUL THINGS,

JEWELRY.

Lorie: AS NEFERTITI'S

MOTHER FOUGHT COLON AND

OVARIAN CANCER, THE

MINISTRY STEPPED IN.

WORDS CAN'T EXPLAIN.

THEY WERE AWESOME.

JUST WHEN YOU THINK YOU'RE

BY YOURSELF, YOU'RE NOT.

Lorie: EVEN THOUGH

HER MOTHER LOST HER FIGHT,

THE CANCER MINISTRY MADE

THOSE FINAL DAYS EASIER.

HELPING AROUND THE

HOUSE, FOOD -- THINGS THAT

MY MOM NEEDED.

SHE WOULD NEED ERRANDS

RUN.

AND SOMETIMES SHE WOULD

JUST WANT SOMEONE TO STIT TO SIT

WITH HER AND TALK.

Lorie: AND THEY ALSO

HELPED NEFERTITI, WHO AS A

MOTHER, BECAME OVERWHELMED

WITH CARING FOR HER

MOTHER.

CHURCHES NOW CAN CHOOSE TO

HELP THOSE DEALING WITH

THE DISEASE.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Caitlin: UP NEXT,

"PLUGGED IN" ON LINE CALLS

IT PROFANE AND A CULT.

FIND OUT WHAT THEY'RE

TALKING ABOUT AND WHAT YOU

NEED TO KNOW BEFORE

HEADING TO THE MOVIES.

Caitlin: ANOTHER BIG

SUPER HERO FLICK IS

HITTING THE BIG SCREEN,

BUT YOU THE MIGHT WANT TO

THINK TWICE ABOUT HEADING

TO THE MOVIES THIS

WEEKEND.

OUR EFREM GRAHAM SPOKE

WITH BOB WALLASHEFSKI FROM

"PLUGGED IN" ON LINE.

CHECK IT OUT.

Efrem: BOB, SUICIDE

SQUAD PROMISES TO BE A BIG

HIT AT THE BOX OFFICE.

WHAT DID YOU THINK OF IT?

YOU KNOW, ALL OF THEE THESE

SUPER HERO-TYPE MOVIES

HAVE BEEN HITS AT THE BOX

OFFICE.

YOU THINK IF YOU HAVE A

SUPERMAN OR A SPIDERMAN OR

EVEN THE VERY PROFANE DEAD

POOL, THEY SEEM TO DO

WELL.

PEOPLE GO.

IT IS INEVITABLE THAT D.C.

COMICS "SUICIDE SQUAD"

WOULD END UP MAKING IT TO

THE BIG SCREEN.

ESSENTIALLY THE PLOT IS

THIS: A BUREAUCRAT FROM

THE U.S. GOVERNMENT GOT

THIS BRAINSTORM, WHAT IF

WE GET THE SUPER BAD GUYS

AND BRING THEM TOGETHER TO

FIGHT FOR THE U.S.

GOVERNMENT, TO TAKE ON

WHAT WE DON'T KNOW FOR

SURE, BUT THERE IS BOUND

TO BE SOME KIND OF SUPER

NATURAL BADDIE OUT THERE.

AND THEY'RE LOCKED UP IN

PRISON CELLS, AND MAYBE 10

YEARS OFF THEIR SENTENCE

WOULD CONVINCE THEM TO DO

IT.

BUT WE ONLY GAVE THIS FILM

A TWO OUT OF FIVE FOR

FAMILY FRIENDLINESS.

IT IS QUITE PROFANE.

IT IS QUITE OCCULTIC.

AND IT IS QUITE SEXUAL.

ROTTEN TOMATOES HAS THE

CRITICS SAYING IT IS

MUMBLED AND JUMBLED.

I THINK PEOPLE WILL STILL

GO, BUT I'M NOT

RECOMMENDING IT IS.

Efrem: OUCH.

WE DIDN'T GET TO TALK TO

YOU LAST WEEK ABOUT THE

NEW JASON BOURNE FILM.

HOW IS THAT ONE?

IT CAME IN AS NUMBER

ONE WITH $60 MILLION OVER

THE WEEKEND.

IT IS THE FIFTH FILM.

FROM AN ENTERTAINMENT

POINT OF VIEW, I FELT LIKE

I HAD SEEN THIS MOVIE

BEFORE.

ESSENTIALLY, DAMON HAS

BEEN LEARNING THROUGHOUT

THE FILMS, AND HE HAS BEEN

PART OF THIS C.I.A. SUPER

ASSASSIN PROGRAM THAT KIND

OF WIPED HIS MEMORY CLEAN.

WE GAVE THIS ONE A 2.5 OUT

OF FIVE FOR FAMILY

FRIENDLINESS.

QUITE VIOLENT AND BLOODY.

AND FOUR MISUSES OF OUR

SAVIOR'S NAME.

NO ONE SAYS, OH, BUDDHA.

IT IS ALWAYS THE KING OF

KINGS, AND I DON'T GET

THAT AND KNOCKED IT DOWN

BECAUSE OF IT.

Efrem: AND THERE IS A

SCI-FI THRILLER IN

THEATERS CALLED "NERD."

LOOKS LIKE IT IS GEARED

PARPARTLY FOR TEENAGERS.

SHOULD THEY SEE IT?

IT WAS SO MUCH BETTER

THAN, SAY, JASON BOURNE.

I FEEL LIKE I HAD SEEN

THAT.

THIS IS SORT OF POKEMON GO

ON MULTIPLE STEROIDS.

TEENS ARE PLAYING A VIDEO

GAME, AND YOU CAN EITHER

BE A PLAYER OR WATCH.

THE GAME IS A TRUTH OR

DARE WITHOUT THE TRUTH.

PEOPLE DARE EACH OTHER TO

DO SOMETHING.

WILL THEY DO IT?

IF THEY DO IT, THEY GET TO

STAY IN THE GAME AND THEY

GET MONEY IN THEIR BANK

ACCOUNT AND THEY GET TO

MOVE UP TO ANOTHER LEVEL.

HERE ARE THE TYPE OF DARES

THEY DO, LIKE HANGING FROM

ONE HAND ON A CRANE ABOUT

20 STORIES ABOVE THE

GROUND AND DO THAT, I

THINK, FOR 10 SECONDS.

AND THERE WAS ONE WHERE

YOU RIDE A MOTORCYCLE

BLINDFOLDED, AND THE

PERSON BEHIND YOU IS

TRYING TO DIRECT YOU.

YOU LAY DOWN ON A SUBWAY

TRACK AND LET A SUBWAY GO

OVER YOU.

IT SEEMS LIKE IT IS

BEGGING FOR COPYCAT.

I HOPE IT NEVER, EVER

HAPPENS, AND SO FAR I

HAVEN'T HEARD THAT IT HAS,

BUT IT BRINGS CAUTION.

THERE IS SENSUAL DIALOGUE

AND QUITE A BIT OF

LANGUAGE.

IT WAS NOT A MORE

FAMILY-FRIENDLY STORY THAN

JASON BOURNE, AND WE GIVE

IT A TWO OUT OF FIVE FOR

FAMILY FRIENDLINESS.

> "THE SECRET LIFE OF

PETS" HAS POTENTIAL, AND

THTHE NEW ICE AGE FILM HAS

POTENTIAL, AND "FINDING

DORY" CERTAINLY HAS

Caitlin: CBN'S
