I am David Wernsman, I was taken by strangers in the middle of the night to a Christian reform program overseas and I'm the main subject of the Showtime Documentary "Kidnapped For Christ" AMA!
**My short bio:
I was sent away by my parents to a Christian reform school in the Dominican Republic called "Escuela Caribe" when I was 17, after coming out as gay. While I was in the program I experienced and witnessed physical, emotional and spiritual abuse on a regular basis. During my time in the Dominican Republic, a film student named Kate Logan came to shoot a documentary and I became the main subject. Now my story is reaching people around the world and I hope that it can be a part to end abuse in residential programs for teens.
The film has been airing on SHOWTIME and you can check out the trailer at http://www.kidnappedforchrist.com/

Thanks for all the great questions, I truly appreciate all the support we've had for this film. If you haven't seen it yet, hope you can catch it on showtime.
Your's truly, David Wernsman
