'Brainwashed' Exposes the Agenda Behind the Reeducation of America's Youth

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., April 9, 2024 /Christian Newswire/ -- The newest documentary from Coral Ridge Ministries, Brainwashed: The Indoctrination of America’s Youth, exposes the agenda behind the radical reeducation taking place in our nation and plots a path forward for parents and those concerned about the spiritual health of the next generation.

“Today’s children are facing a virtual tsunami of twisted lies,” said Dr. Robert J. Pacienza, host of Brainwashed and president and CEO of Coral Ridge Ministries. “Social media is fueling a transgender craze. Public schools, colleges and universities have become a hotbed of radical liberalism, and the entertainment industry has shifted from subtle influencing to outright propaganda. It is imperative for parents to understand how their children are being indoctrinated from all sides if they hope to raise healthy children who remain in the faith.”

Brainwashed points out the crisis among America’s youth as it relates to depression, suicide and transgenderism, including:

  • 44% of teens in the United States report feeling persistently sad and hopeless, up from 37% in 2019. (CDC)
  • More than a third of Gen Z rate their mental health as “poor” or “only fair,” higher than any other generation (recent Gallup Poll).
  • At least 3,600 individuals between the ages of 12 and 18 underwent body-disfiguring gender transition surgeries across the United States between 2016 and 2020 (data in the Journal of the American Medical Association).
  • During the pandemic, LGBTQ+ high school students were about 4 times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers (CDC).
  • TikTok’s algorithm funnels mentally and emotionally damaging content—such as suicide and eating disorders—to adolescents within minutes of creating a profile (The Center for Countering Digital Hate).

“Our woke culture promises freedom, promotes self-love over all, denigrates faith as ‘close-minded,’ pushes radical liberalism, and denies absolute truth ... all to the detriment of a generation of young people,” Pacienza states.

Featuring commentary from noted experts including Eric Metaxas, Carol Swain, George Barna, Voddie Baucham, Alisa Childers and Hillary Morgan Ferrer, Brainwashed presents a strong argument for an immediate return to a biblical worldview. The documentary offers practical guidance to help viewers stop the brainwashing and instead fill youth with the hope and truth of God’s Word.

Brainwashed will air through Coral Ridge Ministries’ Truths That Transform program on April 14, 21 and 28, and is also available to purchase on DVD at crm.tv/brainwashed.
