After 5 weeks since it’s debut on Apple iTune, a controversial iPhone application which claims to cure gay people from their homosexuality through “biblical teaching” has been removed by Apple from the app store.
An online petition with more the 150,000 signatures was created to have the app removed. The app was created by Exodus International, a ministry that defines its mission as promoting “freedom from homosexuality through the power of Jesus Christ.”
A rep for Apple told the Huffington Post that Apple removed the “gay cure” app because it “[violated] our developer guidelines by being offensive to large groups of people.”
Now Exodus International is accusing Apple of suppressing diversity of opinion and ignoring the demands of its users by removing the app, which the ministry said was downloaded nearly 16,000 times during the weeks it was available.
