TODAY ON "NEWSWATCH,"

THE COURT SAYS NO.

WHAT'S NEXT FOR PRESIDENT

TRUMP'S TRAVEL BAN NOW

THAT IT HAS BEEN REJECTED

BY JUDGES AGAIN.

PLUS...

THE PEOPLE ARE FED UP

WITH POLITICIAN IGNORING

THE PROBLEMS.

THEY ARE BEING CALLED

RACIST IF THEY MAKE A

REMARK ABOUT, HEY, THIS IS

NOT OUR COUNTRY ANYMORE.

CBN NEWS SITS DOWN WITH

THE MAN WHO COULD CAUSE

THE E.U. TO EXPLODE.

AND...SEE HOW "ORPHANS'

PROMISE" IS REACHING ALL

THE WAY TO THE MIDDLE EAST

TO OFFER HOPE.

THANKS FOR JOINING US

FOR CBN "NEWSWATCH," I'M

CHARLENE AARON.

> A FEDERAL APPEALS

COURT REFUSED THURSDAY TO

REINSTATE PRESIDENT

TRUMP'S TEMPORARY TRAVEL

BAN.

THAT IS THE EXECUTIVE

ORDER THAT BLOCKED

IMMIGRANTS FROM SEVEN

PREDOMINANTLY MUSLIM

NATIONS WITH LINKS TO

TERRORISM.

AS DALE HURD REPORTS,

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS VOWING

TO KEEP FIGHTING TO

PROTECT AMERICA.

Reporter: THE JUDGES

ON THE PANEL FROM THE SAN

FRANCISCO-BASED NINTH U.S.

CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS

SAYS IN THE ARGUMENT THAT

THE ORDER TARGETED MUSLIMS

AND PRESENTED SIGNIFICANT

CONSTITUTIONAL QUESTIONS.

THE PANEL DECLINED TO

SUSPEND THE ORDER.

PRESIDENT TRUMP SOUNDED

LIKE HE WOULD APPEAL TO

THE SUPREME COURT,

TWEETING, "SEE YOU IN

COURT.

THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION

IS AT STAKE".

President Trump: IT

IS A DECISION WE'LL WIN,

IN MY OPINION, VERY

EASILY.

WE'VE SEEN THEM IN

COURT TWICE, AND WE'RE TWO

FOR TWO.

Reporter: DEMOCRATS

MAY BE GLOATING NOW, BUT

IN 2012, THE SUPREME COURT

OVERTURNED 86% OF THE

CASES THAT CAME TO IT FROM

THE NINTH.

THE COURT IS SO LIBERAL,

CRITICS HAVE CALLED HAVE

CALLED IT "THE NINTH

CIRCUS."

THE DECISION CAME DOWN ON

THE FIRST DAY ON THE JOB

FOR NEW ATTORNEY-GENERAL

JEFF SESSIONS, WHO WAS

SWORN IN AT THE WHITE

HOUSE ON THURSDAY.

THIS LAW PROFESSOR DOES

NOT THINK THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION STANDS FOR

A GOOD CHANCE OF VICTORY

IF IT APPEALS TO A DIVIDED

EIGHT-MEMBER SUPREME

COURT.

THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION WANTS TO

TAKE IT TO THE SUPREME

COURT TO JUSTICE

KENNEDY -- THEY CAN DO

THAT, BUT THAT COURT IS

NOW DIVIDED, WE THINK,

4-4, WITH EIGHT MEMBERS.

THEY DON'T HAVE A NINTH

MEMBER.

SO I DON'T SEE HOW THE

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION WOULD

EXPECT TO WIN AT THE U.S.

SUPREME COURT.

Reporter: BUT OTHER

COURT WATCHERS DISAGREE

AND BELIEVE THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION COULD WIN

AT THE HIGH COURT.

MEANWHILE, THE WASHINGTON

TIMES REPORTS THE STATE

DEPARTMENT HAS MORE THAN

DOUBLED THE RATE OF

REFUGEES FROM IRAQ, SYRIA,

AND OTHER SUSPECT

COMPANIES IN THE WEEK

SINCE THE PRESIDENT'S

TRAVEL BAN HAS BEEN

BLOCKED, IN WHAT SOME

ANALYSTS BE IS TO ADMIT AS

MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE

UNTIL ANOTHER COURT PUTS A

STOP TO IT.

THOUSANDS OF PASTORS

SIGNED A LETTER ASKING

PRESIDENT TRUMP AND MIKE

PENCE TO ALLOW REFUGEES TO

COME TO THE U.S.

FIRST OF ALL, IF WE

WANT TO HELP REFUGEES, WE

NEED TO SOLVE THE

SITUATION THAT HAS CAUSED

THEM TO FLEE THEIR HOMES,

THAT HAS CAUSED THEM TO

FLEE THEIR COUNTRY.

AND WE DO THAT BY ENDING

THIS REGIME-CHANGE WAR IN

SYRIA, TO PROVIDE A PATH

TOWARDS PEACE AND

STABILITY, THAT WILL ALLOW

THEM TO COME HOME.

VICE PRESIDENT MIKE

PENCE VISITED WEST POINT

THIS WEEK AND RECEIVED

CHEERS AFTER HIS

DISCUSSION OVER TRUMP'S

NEW PUSH AGAINST ISIS.

PENCE SAID, "MAKE NO

MISTAKE ABOUT IT,

PRESIDENT TRUMP AND THIS

ADMINISTRATION AND THIS

COUNTRY WILL NOT REST

UNTIL THESE ENEMIES ARE

DESTROYED AND OUR NATION

IS SAFE AGAIN."

AND PENCE WAS ALSO CHEERED

AGAIN WHEN HE GRANTED

AMNESTY FOR MINOR OFFENSES

TO THE CADETS.

> CBN NEWS HAS BEEN AT

THE FOREFRONT OF COVERING

EFFORTS TO REPEAL THE

JOHNSON AMENDMENT THE LAST

FEW WEEKS.

IT IS AN I.R.S. RULE THAT

BLOCKS NON-PROFITS AND

CHURCHES FROM SUPPORTING

OR OPPOSING POLITICAL

CANDIDATES.

PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS VOWED

TO REPEAL IT, AND NOW AB

REMEMBEABIGAIL ROBERTSON MET UP

WITH ONE CONGRESSMAN WHO

HAS BE FIGHTING TO END THE

AMENDMENT FOR DECADES.

Reporter: DONALD

TRUMP MADE MANY PROMISES

TO THE EVANGELICALS DURING

THIS CAMPAIGN.

PRESIDENT TRUMP ONE OF THE

ABSOLUTE THINGS I'M GOING

TO DO IS WORK ON TOTALLY

KNOCKING OUT THE JOHNSON

AMENDMENT.

2017 IS GOING TO BE THE

YEAR IT GOES.

Reporter: LONG TIME

OPPONENT WALTER JONES HAS

ALREADY INTRODUCED A BILL

THIS TERM CALLING FOR THE

AMENDMENT'S REPEAL.

IT IS A MOVE TAKEN BY

JONES EACH YEAR SINCE

2001, WHEN HE FIRST

NOTICED THE I.R.S.

MONITORING PEOPLE OF FAITH

DURING THE 2000 ELECTION.

IT IS KIND OF LIKE BIG

BROTHER, LISTENING TO WHAT

THE MINISTER OR PRIEST OR

RABBI MIGHT BE SAYING IN

THIS SITUATION.

Reporter: SENATOR

JOHNSON INTRODUCED THE

AMENDMENT IN 1954, AN

ELECTION YEAR, WHEN TWO

TEXAS NON-PROFITS

SUPPORTED HIS PRIMARY

OPPONENT.

HE PROPOSED THE LAW THAT

DENIES TAX-EXEMPT STATUS

TO ANY 501 C3, INCLUDING

HOUSES OF WORSHIP WHO

INTERVENE IN A POLITICAL

CAMPAIGN.

IT WAS A TOTALLY BIAS

CAMPAIGN AND I THINK

AMERICA IS A MUCH BETTER

PLACE WHEN WE'RE REMINDED

THAT GOD IS CENTRAL TO

WHAT WE'RE DOING.

Reporter: SUPPORTERS

SAY THAT THE AMENDMENT

PREVENTS CHURCHES FROM

BECOMING SUPER PACKS, BUT

CRITICS, LIKE JAY SEKULOW,

CALL IT ARGUES THAT THE PURPOSE OF

THE I.R.S. IS TO COLLECT

REVENUE --

ALL THIS IS DOING IS

RETURNING THE RIGHTS OF

FREE SPEECH TO WHERE IT

BELONGS.

EVERYBODY IS WATCHING

US SHOULD WRITE TO THEIR

CONGRESSMAN AND THEIR

SENATORS IN SUPPORT OF

REPEALING THE JOHNSON

AMENDMENT.

Reporter: ADVOCATES

HOPE THAT THE OUTCRY WILL

CONVINCE THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION TO RETURN

TRUE FREEDOM OF SPEECH TO

CHURCHES AND OTHER

NON-PROFITS.

REPORTING FROM CAPITOL

HILL, ABIGAIL ROBERTSON,

CBN NEWS.

THERE IS NEW

INFORMATION OUT ABOUT HOW

PLANNED PARENTHOOD, THE

NATION'S LARGEST ABORTION

PROVIDER, DOES BUSINESS.

FORMER EMPLOYEES SAY THE

ORGANIZATION PRESSURES

CLINICS TO MEET ABORTION

QUOTAS BO BY ENCOURAGING

DISTRESSED WOMEN TO HAVE

ABORTIONS.

OFTEN TIME EMPLOYEES WERE

AWARDED WITH PIZZA PARTIES

AND PAID TIME OFF FOR

HITTING THEIR GOAL OF

ABORTIONS THAT MONTH.

THEY WERE TRAINED HOW TO

CONVINCE WOMEN THAT

ABORTION WAS THEIR ONLY

OPTION AND IT HAS BEEN

GOING ON FOR YEARS.

LEILA ROSE TREATED THIS

IMAGE OF A PLANNED

PARENTHOOD AWARD GIVEN TO

A CLINIC THAT ABORTED MANY

BABIES THAN IT HAD IN THE

PREVIOUS YEAR.

PRO-LIFE ACTIVISTS EXPECT

PLANNED PARENTHOOD TO DENY

THESE CLAIMS.

ONE GEORGIA PASTOR JUST

WON A BIG LEGAL PASTOR.

IN 2013, ERIC WALSH WAS

HIRED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF

HEALTH IN GEORGIA.

SOON AFTER WATCHING HIS

SERMONS, THE DEPARTMENT

FIRED HIM.

FIRST LIBERTY INSTITUTE

HELPED HIM FILE A

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM LAWSUIT,

AND NOW HE IS JUST WON A

$225,000 SETTLEMENT.

WHILE IT IS A HUGE

VICTORY, WALSH IS STILL IN

SHOCK.

I'M BLOWN AWAY ABOUT

THE IDEA IN THE UNITED

STATES YOU CAN PASTOR AND

DELIVER MESSAGES TO

CONGREGATIONS, AND THAT

CAN BE USED AGAINST YOU

WHEN YOU APPLY FOR A GOD

OR WHEN YOU'RE OFFERED A

JOB.

FIRST LIBERTY CALLED IT

A WIN.

> ARCHEOLOGISTS FROM THE

HEBREW UNIVERSITY HAVE

DISCOVERED A CAVE THAT

ONCE CONTAINED DEAD SEA

SCROLLS.

THE UNIVERSITY SAYS NO

TEXTS WERE FOUND, BUT

THERE IS EVIDENCE SCROLLS

WERE ONCE STORED IN THE

CASE.

THEY FOUND FRAGMENTS OF A

SCROLL WRAPPING AND A

STRING USED TO TIE A

SCROLL.

THEY ARE ANCIENT

MANUSCRIPTS THAT CONTAIN

JUDEO CHRISTIAN TEXT.

THE SCROLLS ARE BELIEVED

TO HAVE BEEN STOLEN FROM

THE CAVE IN THE 1950s.

NIK WALLENDA CREDITS GOD

FOR SAVING FIVE OF HIS

TEAM MEMBERS AFTER A

TERRIBLE ACCIDENT.

HE WAS LEADING THE

EIGHT-PERSON TEAM DURING

PRACTICE ON WEDNESDAY WHEN

THE PERFORMERS LOST THEIR

BALANCE AND FELL 30 FEET.

HE TOLD REPORTERS THAT

MIRACLES ARE REAL.

IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE IN

GOD, YOU BETTER START NOW

BECAUSE IT IS A MIRACLE.

YOU KNOW, ONE OF THE GUYS

WAS UP OVER 40 FEET HIGH

ON TOP OF THAT PYRAMID,

AND HE WILL WALK OUT OF

THE HOSPITAL ON HIS OWN

WILL TODAY.

HE HAD THREE BROKEN TOES.

THAT'S A MIRACLE.

NIK WALLENDA WAS

UNINJURED DURING THE

ACCIDENT.

> COMING UP, HE IS BEING

CALLED THE DUTCH DONALD

TRUMP, ALTHOUGH HE HATES

NICKNAMES.

HEAR ABOUT THIS PLAN TO

MAKE THE NETHERLANDS GREAT

AGAIN.

THE EUROPEAN UNION

COULD SUFFER ANOTHER MAJOR

POLITICAL DEFEAT THIS

MONTH IF, AS THE POLLS

PREDICT, THE POLLS PICK

GEERT WILDERS.

HE SAYS IT IS ONLY A

MATTER OF TIME UNTIL THE

E.U. IS GONE.

HE SAT DOWN FOR THIS

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH

CBN'S DALE HURD.

Reporter: SOME SAY HE

WILL BE THE NEXT NAIL IN

THE EUROPEAN UNION'S

COFFIN.

GEERT WILDERS ANTI-E.U.

AND ANTI-IMMIGRATION PARTY

FOR FREEDOM IS ON TRACK TO

WIN NATIONAL ELECTIONS IN

MARCH.

BUT HE TOLD US WHY A

VICTORY STILL MIGHT NOT

MAKE HIM THE PRIME

MINISTER.

AND HE CALLS HIS

CONVICTION ON THE HATE

SPEECH CHARGE FOR SAYING

THERE ARE TOO MANY

MOROCCANS IN THE

NETHERLANDS RIDICULOUS.

HE STILL LIVES UNDER

24-HOUR PROTECTION FROM

DEATH THREATS.

WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T

CALL HIM THE DUTCH DONALD

TRUMP.

HE EMERGED FROM HIS TRIAL

MORE DEFIANT AND MORE

POPULAR THAN EVER.

HE GRANTED THIS EXCLUSIVE

INTERVIEW TO CBN NEWS.

> AFTER YOUR RECENT

TRIAL FOR HATE SPEECH, YOU

DIDN'T SOUND VERY

REPENTANT, VERY SORRY.

I'M NOT.

HOW CAN I BE?

I REALLY SAID NOTHING

WRONG.

I THINK I'M THE FIRST

DUTCHMAN THAT WAS

CONVICTED FOR SOMETHING

THAT IS NOT IN THE LAW

BECAUSE THE JUDGE DECIDED

THAT MOROCCANS, WHICH AS

YOU KNOW IS A NATIONALITY,

HAS TO BE SEEN AS A RACE.

THE ONLY REASON I SAID IT

WAS BECAUSE 80% OF THE

DUTCH JIHADISTS WHO GO TO

FIGHT IN SYRIA ARE

MOROCCANS.

80%.

THEY ARE 22 TIMES OVER

REPRESENTED IN CRIMINAL

OFFENSES WHEN IT COMES TO

STREET CRIME.

AND 60% OF THE MOROCCAN

YOUTH UNDER THE AGE OF

2 3

HAS BEEN ARRESTED AT LEAST

TWICE.

THE JUDGE SAID, BECAUSE OF

INTERNATIONAL

JURISPRUDENCE, NOT EVEN IN

THE DUTCH LAW, THAT

MOROCCANS HAD TO BE SEEN

AS A RACE.

SO IF YOU'RE IN HOLLAND,

BE CAREFUL BECAUSE IF

TOMORROW YOU SAY THAT YOU

DON'T LIKE FRENCH, GERMAN

OR SWEDISH FOOD OR PEOPLE,

YOU COULD BE CALLED A

RACIST.

OF COURSE, THIS IS

RIDICULOUS, AND I DID

NOTHING WRONG, AND THAT'S

WHY I WILL APPEAL THIS

CRAZY VERDICT.

Reporter: WHY DO YOU

THINK YOU'VE BECOME SO

POPULAR IN THE

NETHERLANDS?

BECAUSE -- I'M NOT

COMPARING MYSELF WITH

DONALD TRUMP OR ANYBODY

ELSE, BUT THE PEOPLE ARE

FED UP WITH POLITICIANS

IGNORING THE PROBLEMS.

THE PEOPLE ARE FED UP BY

IF THEY SAY SOMETHING

ABOUT THE INFLUX OF THE

MASS IMMIGRATION FROM

MOSTLY ISLAMIC COUNTRIES,

WHAT THEY REALLY FEEL AS A

THREAT, WHICH REALLY IS A

THREAT, THEY'RE BEING

CALLED RACIST IF THEY MAKE

A REMARK ABOUT, HEY, THIS

IS NOT OUR COUNTRY

ANYMORE.

THESE ARE NOT RACISTS.

AND THE GOVERNMENT SAW --

THE GOVERNMENT SPENT

BILLIONS OF EUROS TO

ASYLUM-SEEKERS WHO WERE

REALLY MIGRANTS LOOKING

FOR A BETTER LIFE.

I DON'T EVEN BLAME THE

PEOPLE FOR TRYING TO HAVE

A BETTER LIFE HERE.

I BLAME OUR GOVERNMENT TO

ALLOW IT TO HAPPEN.

TO NOT SAY, ENOUGH IS

ENOUGH.

YOU ARE NOT A REFUGEE.

AND WE HAVE TO DEFEND OUR

OWN COUNTRY AND CLOSE OUR

BORDERS.

A COUNTRY WITHOUT A BORDER

IS LIKE A PERSON IN A

HOUSE WITHOUT A FRONT

DOOR.

ANYBODY CAN ENTER, AND YOU

CANNOT ASK ANYBODY TO

LEAVE.

SO IT IS NO A REAL COUNTRY

AT ALL.

Reporter: THERE ARE

MANY SIMILARITIES BETWEEN

YOU AND MR. TRUMP.

A FEW.

Reporter: YOU'RE BOTH

OUTSIDERS, BASHED BY THE

MEDIA.

YEAH.

Reporter: YOU CHANGED

THE POLITICAL DISCUSSION

IN THE NETHERLANDS.

YES, I HOPE.

Reporter: AND YOU'RE

STRONG-WILLED.

I'M VERY STRONG-WILLED,

AND I'M VERY IMPATIENT, AS

WELL.

AND SOME OF OUR IDEAS

MIGHT BE THE SAME.

UNFORTUNATELY, WE DON'T

HAVE A TWO-PARTY SYSTEM.

LIKE YOU SAID BEFORE, I

HOPE TO WIN AND BECOME

PRIME MINISTER.

BUT I COULD WIN AND NOT

BECOME PRIME MINISTER

BECAUSE OF OUR SYSTEM.

YOU CAN WIN THE ELECTION

AND STILL LOSE IF NOBODY

WANTS TO WORK WITH YOU.

AND THE PEOPLE -- MOST OF

THE PARTIES ARE SAYING NOW

THAT THEY WOULD NOT WANT

TO WORK WITH ME.

BUT, HEY, AS MR. TRUMP

SAYS, THERE ARE MANY

DIFFERENCES PERHAPS AS

WELL.

ONE OF YOUR COLLEAGUES

ASKED ME, YOU ARE THE

DUTCH TRUMP, AND I SAID

NO, I'M THE DUTCH

MR. WILDERS.

MR. TRUMP IS MR. TRUMP.

I BELIEVE, AS MR. TRUMP

SAID, THAT DESPITE SOME

DIFFERENCES, WE HAVE A LOT

IN COMMON.

AND IT IS A KIND OF

MOVEMENT, AS HE CALLS IT.

AND WE ARE NOT THE FRENCH

MOVEMENT.

FRANCE IS NOT OUR

MOVEMENT.

BUT THE PEOPLE ARE

WAKENING UP.

Reporter: WHAT DO YOU

HOPE IS THE FUTURE OF THE

EUROPEAN UNION?

I'M AGAINST THE

EUROPEAN UNION, AS I TOLD

YOU.

BUT I'M VERY MUCH IN FAVOR

OF EUROPE.

EUROPE IS MY HOME.

EUROPE IS MY CONTINENT.

EUROPE IS WHERE WE LIVE.

THE EUROPEAN UNION IS A

POLITICAL BUREAUCRATIC

ORGANIZATION THAT TOOK

AWAY OUR IDENTITY AND OUR

NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY.

I WANT TO GET RID OF THE

EUROPEAN UNION AND BE A

NATION STATE AGAIN.

BOTH THE EURO ZONE AND THE

EUROPEAN UNION IS LIKE THE

END OF ROMAN EMPIRE.

IT HAS ALREADY STARTED.

IN A FEW YEARS' TIME IT

WON'T BE THERE ANYMORE.

DON'T ASK ME IF IT WILL BE

TWO YEARS OR 10 YEARS, BUT

THE END IS NEAR, LIKE THE

ROROMAN EMPIRE.

WE NEED TO HAVE A "NEXIT"

LIKE "BREXIT", AND LEAVE

THE EUROPEAN UNION.

Reporter: WHEN I LAST

INTERVIEWED YOU, IT WAS 10

YEARS YOU HAD BEEN IN

POLICE PROTECTION.

NOW IS 12, 12 AND A HALF?

YES, 12 AND A HALF.

Reporter: HOW IS IT

GOING WITH YOUR SEMI-FREE

LIFE?

IT IS THE SAME ANSWER I

GAVE YOU LAST TIME: I

DON'T WISH IT FOR MY WORST

ENEMY TO EXPERIENCE.

BUT I KNOW WHAT I'M DOING

IT FOR.

WHETHER I SUCCEED OR FAIL,

IT IS MY MISSION.

IT IS MY MISSION FOR

FREEDOM.

IT IS A SAD THING THAT I

LOST MY OWN FREEDOM IN THE

PROCESS, BUT IF I DON'T

SUCCEED, MANY MORE PEOPLE

WILL LOSE THEIR FREEDOM.

Reporter: EXCELLENT.

THANK YOU.

IT'S MY PLEASURE.

UP NEXT, SEE HOW THIS

FAMILY FOUND HOPE AND HELP

IN THE AFTERMATH OF WAR.

Charlene: THE SYRIAN

CIVIL WAR HAS CREATED

MILLIONS OF REFUGEES NOW

LIVING IN CAMPS THROUGHOUT

THE MIDDLE EAST, IN PLACES

LIKE TURKEY, JORDAN, AND

LEBANON.

HERE IS A STORY OF HOW

CBN'S "ORPHANS' PROMISE"

BROUGHT HELP AND HOPE TO

ONE FAMILY DEVASTATED BY

THAT WAR.

Reporter: LAURA AND

HER BROTHER, BALAL, WALK

THROUGH THE TENTS OF THE

REFUGEE CAMP EVERY DAY.

THEY AND THEIR MOTHER HAVE

STRUGGLED EVER SINCE THE

WAR STARTED AND THEIR

FATHER WAS KILLED.

A LARGE BOMB HIT THE

HOUSE.

MY DAD AND SOME OF OUR

RELATIVES DIED.

I STILL GET VERY SAD WHEN

I HEAR OTHER GIRLS SAY,

DADDY, DADDY, BECAUSE I

CAN'T SAY THAT ANYMORE.

WE BARELY MADE IT OUT

OF SYRIA, BUT LIFE HERE

HAS BEEN VERY HARD.

WE CAME WITH NOTHING, AND

WE RELY ON THE CHARITY OF

OUR NEIGHBORS TO SURVIVE.

Reporter: LAURA'S

MOTHER TOLD ME ONE OF HER

BIGGEST WORRIES NOW IS THE

FUTURE OF HER CHILDREN.

SHE IS SUCH A SMART

CHILD AND I JUST WANTED

HER AND BALAL TO HAVE A

CHANCE TO DO ALL OF THE

THINGS THAT I COULD NOT.

Reporter: SO "HEART

FOR LEBANON", WITH SUPPORT

FROM CBN'S "ORPHANS'

PROMISE," INVITED THEM TO

ATTEND OUR HEALTH CENTER,

A SCHOOL DEDICATED TO

HELPING REFUGEE CHILDREN.

HERE THEY'RE LEARNING

MATH, ARABIC, ENGLISH AND

MUSIC, AND THEY'RE ALSO

BEING TAUGHT ABOUT JESUS

CHRIST.

IT MAKE ME SO HAPPY TO

KNOW THAT JESUS LOVES US.

JESUS IS MY GOD, AND I TRY

TO BE LIKE HIM.

I LIKE TO RIDE AND COME WRITE AND

COME OUT AND PLAY WITH MY

FRIENDS.

AND I REALLY LIKE TO SING

SONGS ABOUT JESUS.

Reporter: AT THE

CENTER, WE ALSO SHOW

"SUPERBOOK" IN ARABIC.

THE SHOW IS AMAZING

BECAUSE WE LEARN STORIES

FROM THE BIBLE.

I GET EXCITED LEARNING

ABOUT GOD.

I GO HOME EACH DAY AND

TELL MY MOM EVERYTHING I

HAVE LEARNED.

MY KIDS TELL ME ABOUT

JESUS CHRIST ALL THE TIME.

AND WHEN I'M FEELING

DEPRESSED, THEY SAY, I

SHOULD PRAY, SO I DO.

IT FEELS GREAT.

Reporter: AND EVERY

MONTH "HEART FOR LEBANON"

AND "ORPHANS' PROMISE"

GIVE FOOD TO LAURA'S

FAMILY AND THOUSANDS OF

OTHER REFUGEES.

I CAN'T THANK "HEART

FOR LEBANON" AND "ORPHANS'

PROMISE" ENOUGH FOR

EVERYTHING THEY HAVE DONE

FOR US.

THE CHRISTIANS ARE THE

ONES WHO HAVE REALLY

HELPED US.

I LOVE "HEART FOR

LEBANON" AND "ORPHANS'

PROMISE," BECAUSE THEY ARE

HELPING US, LIKE GOD

TEACHES US TO HELP OTHERS.

DEAR GOD, PLEASE BLESS AND

TAKE CARE OF THE ORPHANS

OF SYRIA, AND PLEASE BLESS

THE CHRISTIANS WHO HAVE

OPENED THE SCHOOL.

DEAR LORD, PLEASE BLESS

THEM AND KEEP THEM SAFE.

AMEN.

Charlene: BEAUTIFUL,

AND YOU CAN HELP "ORPHANS'

PROMISE" AS THEY

ADMINISTER AROUND THE

WORLD.

TO FIND OUT HOW, GO TO

orphanspromise.org.

> WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Charlene: WELL, THE

WEEKEND IS HERE, SO YOU

MAY BE LOOKING FOR A

LITTLE FAMILY-FRIENDLY

ENTERTAINMENT.

AND FOR SOME HELP, WE TURN

TO OUR FRIENDS AT "PLUGGED

IN" WITH A REVIEW OF THE

NEW FILM "LEGO BATMAN."

TAKE A LOOK.

THE FIR LESSON IS,

LIFE DOESN'T GIVE YOU SEAT

BELTS.

Reporter: IN THE LEGO

BATMAN MOVIE, LIFE IS

PRETTY SWEET FOR THE CAPED

CRUSADER.

HE IS A BIT ISOLATED AND

ALONE, BUT THAT IS THE WAY

HE LIKES IT.

AND THE GOOD FOLKS OF LEGO

GOTHAM CAN REST ASSURED

THAT AS SOON AS THE BAT

VEHICLE HITS THE SKY, HE

WILL VANISH ALL BAD GUYS.

BUT WHEN THE JOKER

SUGGESTS HE IS BATMAN'S

GREATEST ENEMY, AND THE

DARK KNIGHT GIVES HIM A

COLD-CAPED SHOULDER.

THAT'S THE LAST STRAW.

YOU SAY THERE IS

NOTHING SPECIAL ABOUT US?

THERE IS NO "US," AND

NEVER WILL BE.

Reporter: THE VILLAIN

DECIDES TO HATCH HIS MOST

DIABOLICAL PLAN EVER,

UNLEASHING A HOARD OF DARK

BAD GUYS TO MAKE HIS

POINT.

IN FACT, IF BATMAN IS

GOING TO WIN THIS FIGHT,

HE IS GOING TO NEED HELP,

EVEN THOUGH THAT IS REALLY

TOUGH FOR THIS HERO TO

ADMIT.

HE NEEDS TO TEAM UP

WITH BATMAN.

WHAT?

Reporter: FOR ALL OF

ITS COMEDIC SEND-OUTS OF

BATMAN, IT DELIVERS A

SURPRISINGLY TENDER

SIGNIFICANT MESSAGE: NO

ONE CAN MAKE IT ALONE, NOT

EVEN BATMAN.

IT EMPHASIZES FRIENDSHIP,

FAMILY, COURAGE, AND

SACRIFICE.

I'M GIVING IT 3 AND A HALF

RINGS OUT OF 5 FOR

FAMILY-FRIENDLINESS.

FOR AN IN DEPTH REVIEW OF

THIS FILM, BE INSURED TO

IT FOR NOW AT CBN
