Thanks to my colleague Patrick Harhai for inspiring me to write this article. As though Newt Gingrich’s claim that he left his cancer ridden wife and divorced two others in the name of God and service to his country was not bizarre enough; this story of parents paying to have their Gay/Lesbian children kidnapped and sent to a punitive school in the Dominican Republic for Christ is far more disturbing and far more cruel.
Yes, I can just see our homeboy JC waiting in the dark of night with his mini-van, ready to kidnap all the young homo youth; I believe that story is in the book of Mark. Kidnapped for Christ is a documentary of Gay and Lesbian American teenagers who were sent — against their will — to Escuela Caribe, an American-run Evangelical Christian reform school in The Dominican Republic.
I guess there is no such thing as unconditional love by parents–and we wonder why the suicide rate amongst LGBT teens is so disproportionately high. Click here to see the trailer. I hope you will take action to help stop this abuse of LGBT youth. Of course, these parents feel justified in abusing their children when they hear and witness top politicians signing a pledge to discriminate against all LGBT people in the United States (Ron Paul, Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney, and Newt Gingrich).
