The iPhone and iPad app that claimed to help gays become “cured” has been yanked from the iTunes’s app store.
The app was created by a Christian hate group called Exodus International, which calls itself a global ministry for “those struggling with unwanted same-sex attraction.” The app claimed to provide “freedom from homosexuality through the power of Jesus.”
This action came after 150,000 people signed their names to a Change.org online petition demanding the anti-gay app’s removal.
“Apple doesn’t allow racist or anti-Semitic apps in its app store, yet it is giving the green light to an app targeting vulnerable LGBT youth with the message that their sexual orientation is a “sin that will make your heart sick” and a “counterfeit.” This is a double standard that has the potential for devastating consequences,” the petition reads.
Apple, as is it’s policy, had no comment.
