Kidnapped for Christ – Fundraiser

[TW – Pray the Gay Away, Kidnapping]

Kidnapped for Christ is a documentary that charts the lives of several American teenagers taken from their homes and sent to an Evangelical Christian reform school. Escuela Caribe, located in the Dominican Republic is an offshore “therapeutic Christian Boarding School” whose mission is to help “struggling youth transform into healthy adults”.

In reality the school employed methods akin to brain washing and psychological torture.

Stories include those of gay teenagers such as David who were “stolen” to be reprogrammed to straight Christian men.

It shows the level of security and control the school has and the fact that the school uses it’s position in the Dominican Republic to torment and torture young children.

Check out their kickstarter.

    I’ve read a lot of bad accounts of Christian residential facilities. There is one called Teen Challenge which, to courts, advertised itself as a drug treatment program but was a purely religious program with no qualified drug abuse treatment professionals on staff which has had some pretty bad abuses. This stuff is horrible, and with the whole ‘gay to straight’ thing based on pseudoscience is equally bad. You can also read about the abuses of Hephzibah house in Indiana in the US.
    For some reason, if you’re doing something with minors and you can cover it under the guise of religion you can effectively escape any oversight. Given that some of these programs are in other countries, they’re obviously trying to avoid having to comply with any laws that might possibly regulate them.

    You realize a whole lot its almost tough to argue with

    put a brand new spin on a subject that has been written about for a long time.
    Excellent stuff, just excellent!
