initiated it. and at this point, our review indicates that the police did not initiate this. >> berkeley is about two miles from ferguson where brown was killed. the interview is now playing this morning in theaters and living rooms near you. just one week ago they were led to cancel the controversial mauve's release. as anna werner reports, fans are happy, and so are the filmmakers. >> reporter: one of the stars of "the interview" seth rogan surprised those waiting to see the movie in los angeles. tickets were sold out in this theater. >> dave. >> tim. >> reporter: "the interview" was also released. sony's deal with microsoft and google makes the film available
online on various platforms and on the website seetheinterview.com. s sony said it was always planning to release the video. >> we haven't heard the last of the streaming partners that are going to be joining sony. we have yet to hear from netflix and itunes, many others. stay tuned. i think this streaming list could get longer. >> it's the first rule of journalism. you give the people what they want. the agency says an experiment used a live virus that was handled without proper protection. the sample was moved into a lab where the technician was working. >> former president h.w. bush remains in a houston hospital. a spokesman said the 90-year-old was hospitalized after having shortness of breath. he had a good day wednesday. well, it is 7:05, and time
pope francis recently made a revelation. he told new parents he was baptized on this day, christmas, 78 years ago. >> the pope also talked about gifts this season. he asked catholics to become the missionaries of joy. he asked people not to worry about the holiday rush, but, quote, i think of all the good things life has given you. >> archbishop kerts, thank you. >> thank you. by the way, merry christmas. >> and to you as well. >> thank you, thank you. >> why is joy crucial to our lives? >> well, don't you think people recognize the joyful person and want to hang around them? i mean that's not an accident. >> is that what this pope's success about is about? >> think it is. i think it is.
i hope there are many people in people's lives that say this person is a joy. our holy father is someone who comes through who's living a simple life. there's not a sense he's acting out cement. he's acting out joy. i think he lives in the present moment. you can just see it. there's a spontaneity with him. that attracts everybody. gospel of joy. >> he's so authentic. that's the thing that gravitates, i think, to people. >> we met october 4th, the feast of saint francis, great day, his patr patron saint. we met for about 45 minutes. he emanated joy. he had time for us. what did we want to talk about, and i wanted to talk about his visit. >> his visit to america. >> it will be his first. i hope you're all getting anxious. i hope you're as excited as i
am. >> he'll come in the fall of 2015 and start in philadelphia. >> i don't know that he'll start in philadelphia but the main presence will be felt in philadelphia, norah, you're right. >> what can we expect when he comes here? >> he'll be meeting with us over the world of families. this will be a great time for people to come together in philadelphia, the city of brotherly love, in order to renew our commitment to family. you and i know that we're in the midst of the synod, so it will be days before the general synod begins. so we're hoping he'll give a shot in the arm toal of us with regard to family. >> remind us of what the synod is? >> very few times that the church has doubleheader. the last synod, this last october, was the challenges of the family. now the synod coming up is
talking about the mission and vocation of family to the world and to the church. >> this comes from a new biography of him. they call him a bit of a radical. >> yes. >> we know of his identification with the poor and his emphasis on being pastoral. this is what he says. dynamic, disconcerting leadersh leadership. which while delighting catholics and attracting people beyond the boundaries of faith has dismayed and disconcerted a number of christians in church. >> he's talking about getting back to the gospel. here it is christmas day. getting rid of all the wrapping paper, so to speak, and getting to the core message which is as our holy father said, it's the message of the love of jesus and the mercy that he shows to each one of us and that we need to show to others.
i think that's the radical nature of what he's about. and, of course, he comes with a style. i've been reading that book to try to understand more. >> what have you understood? >> i think the fact that he sees the person first. he has often said -- he says it in the joy of the gospel. he said he favors realities over ideas. he's a smart man. i think he doesn't want to get so far away and argue about ideas that you miss the person in front of him. >> it's so interesting that you say that because he sees the person first. i think that's what people are struck by. whether you're gay, whether you're divorced, people who have been ostracized from the catholic church, the pope seems to be extending his arms to them. >> he does, norah. one of the things he uses -- i don't know if he would use the word "art," but the art of
accompaniment. what does it mean to be accompanied, especially when you're hurting. when i was ordained in 1972, i didn't know it was accompanied. they entered into the lavs of people and they accompanied them on a path to christ. >> is it possible because there's so much emphasis on him doing, that because it reminds us that jesus was a radical that the church had forgotten that a bit? >> why do i need a retreat every year. and i need it. why? because i need to return to the rooting. i imagine that's true of all of you in journalism, that you need to -- >> we need a lot of things. >> but what brought you to the true message. i think a pope in a sense -- i think pope francis as a
pontificate has been a big treat for me. it's called me to go back and-to-what's most basic and important in my own life and i think that's what's attracting people. >> you know, we focus on what's so different from one another, we focus on political parties, people focus on different gender, different races, different religions. certainly we have conflict all over the world, instead of focusing on how much people are alike. >> i think that's right. the pope says, listen, i'm a son of the church. in the truth of christ. but in doing that, wasn't it jesus who saw the person first and front. even someone who was in a very sinful situation. zwries said, now go out and sin no more. he never said that when he first talked.
i think that's what pope francis is saying. the rule is the role of the holy father is to serve and our role is to assist him. i hope when i go back to louisville, kentucky, i can serve. i want to get back to the very roots of what the church is about. our mission is to present jesus christ to the new age. >> never a better time to celebrate than christmas. >> oh, especially when you look at the fact that christmas slows us down. it makes all of us, i think, think about others. i celebrate on christmas day the mass of the air. i often think -- it's a mass that goes on in louisville in which people are maybe living alone but they're somehow joined that day to the church. so i think in some ways it does bring us to the deep ministries of life and maybe makes is a
litter more like children. >> may we all experience that. are you handling the t linling when he comes here to the united states? >> am i handling it. i can't handle my own interview. he has a fondness for the media. >> very nice to have you here. >> thanks, gayle. merry christmas. 80% identify themselves as christians but only a third go to church on a regular basis. jericka duncan shows us an australian megachurch bucking that trend in this country. >> what's the point of all this. religion is the official handshake. make a lot of noise, do all that stuff. >> reporter: inside the grand
ballroom carl lynch is electrifying the major audience. >> take a shot in letting the ruler rule. ♪ jesus >> reporter: this is new york city's hillsong church and lynch, husband and father of three is not your average pastor. >> you preach anywhere from six to seven sermons on sunday. is it tiring? >> yeah, it's tiring but you get refresh refreshed. >> reporter: hillsong graduated from hillsong bible college. it was the start of hillsong in the u.s. now a large crowd of 7,000 people line up to attend one of several servicesed each sunday. what do you think they talk about? >> there are a lot of people right now who don't care about
fashion, what looks cool. we say, you come as you are and there's going to be a play for you. >> we have a passion to do something significant. >> reporter: senior pastor founded hillsong. >> reporter: young people are drawn to hillsong's music. the church has its own record label that sold 16 million albums worldwide and make 1/mill a year. every week in 12 countries, 75,000 faithful follow hillsong services and many follow online including justin bieber. and kevin durant was baptized by
past pastor. >> i think that's why i open so many doors. ♪ cry if not for me >> while it differs from the traditional county church, he says it's the same. >> we don't want to turn our backs on all. we want to connect with some. >> is there any issue you would walk away from? >> no. >> what about premarital sex. >> what did god say about purity, valuing other people. >> what do you teach? >> sex is for marriage. >> and abortion? >> life is sacred. it's still home for you. we're not going to kick you out of the house, and we're not going to walk away.
we still love you. >> openly gay comes are welcome but he does not support same-sex marriage. >> why i don't you support same-sex marriage? >> i think it's clear. we are the painted tongue according to the scriptures and that's the stand we take. >> i have the right to have my belief as you have your belief. >> reporter: welcome home signs help keep it fresh and they hope to keep the message fresh. >> sometimes if the chosen isn't going to change the mektd odds, then it won't be relevant. >> i know what we do, love god, love life, love peek and let the chips fall where they may. >> my attitude is if it brings you to a better life, it's good
for you. >> it's so true. the first time is when bubba watson was in the green room. he came in. britney on our set said, that's my pastor. i was blown away. you're right. ahead, a remarkable new tom knollgy. a look at the boost for american troops on the bratzle -- battlefield. >> she danced her way to the music stage. it's not easy being green. kermit the frog share as value of chasing dreams and a poignant note to his younger self. you're watching "cbs this
