Apple Removes “gay cure” iPhone app

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 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.
