Gay? There’s an App for That!

March 24, 2011

Apple has recently withdrawn the “anti-gay” iPhone application, created by religious group, Exodus.

The app is purported to cure homosexuality by giving users a chance of “freedom from homosexuality through the power of Jesus.”

The free application is aimed at helping “ those struggling with unwanted same-sex attraction to live a life congruent with biblical teaching.”

A Facebook campaign accrued over 146,000 signatures, in an effort to get Apple to remove the app from the iTunes store.  As of today, the app is no longer available, and a donation to fight California’s gay marriage ban has been made by the company.

Isn’t it ironic, that in an age of high technology and futuristic thinking, that an app was created to promote an antiquated and bigoted point of view?

It just goes to show you, that there truly is an app for just about anything these days.
