This is a trailer for a new documentary: "Kidnapped for Christ"
"This film addresses an issue that very few Americans are aware of, but that has impacted the lives of millions of adolescents and families for nearly half a century – the rise of inappropriate and abusive treatment in the troubled teen industry. All over the US and abroad, so-called therapeutic boarding schools, boot camps, and wilderness rehabilitation programs take in teenagers with a wide range of issues and use unsafe and often harmful tactics to reform them. Using political connections, religious affiliations, and substantial amounts of money, many such camps and schools have committed inappropriate and abusive acts behind their guarded walls for decades with impunity."
Remember this article? Oppression of Youth and Dominionism
In it, I talk a little bit about the oppressive Christian "schools and camps" they send "troubled" youth to and use abusive methods to break a youth's will for control. From that article I wrote:
The school has a current enrollment of 63 children, placed in the school by parents in an effort to remedy behavior problems. New Horizon uses a boot-camp atmosphere to place children onto what school officials believe to be the right road for life.
A handful of protesters showed at a Founder's Day celebration this month at the Marion campus.
"We want people to ask us about our experiences in the program, educate those who didn't know about the program and let students see that we are rooting for them," said Lisa Brown Wilbur of New Castle as she held a sign reading "Stop the Abuse."
The protesters painted a picture of complete dictation, a life completely monitored by counselors.
And yes in those places their lives are totally controlled and monitored. Many of these schools including secular ones, are full of human rights violations, extreme punishments, like withholding food and sleep and hours of hard labor, and oppressive behavior modification methods.
This is just one of the many examples among many. Some young people have lost their lives in the worse places. These schools grew numerous in the 80s but kept expanding in the 90s. Many parents were told this was the best way to deal with their troubled teens. In some circles, harsh punishment was promoted for every problem a young person was to face, strip their room clean of every item except the mattress, send them off to "wilderness camps" or "bootcamps" where intense physical exercise and brutality ruled. Young adults who encountered health problems or could not take the strain, have died at these places. "
The more of these places that are exposed the better. These schools have nothing to do with true Christianity but false Dominionism and the police state married together. This is about breaking people down and using false religion to do it.
