Did you read about how Apple has come under fire for approving an “app” that offers guidance on how homosexual people can be “cured” and convert to heterosexuality?

The “gay cure” application, designed to be used on Apple’s hand-held devices, was created by and named after Exodus International, a religious organisation which believes in teaching “freedom from homosexuality through prayer and practicing conversion therapy”. The app is offered free on Apple’s iTunes online shop and was given a “4+” rating by the company, meaning it is not considered to contain objectionable content. A description of the app on the online shop said: “With over 35 years of ministry experience, Exodus is committed to encouraging, educating and equipping the Body of Christ to address the issue of homosexuality with grace and truth.” Gay activists quickly gathered more than 37,000 signatures for an online petition persuading Apple to drop the software.

Once again we see the intolerance of militant gays. There must be hundreds of thousands of Apps on every conceivable subject, I even have one on killing zombies! (Never mind the excellent Tiger Woods Golf app) So the idea that there can’t be religious ones is outrageous and if some religious group wants to have one that offers “freedom from homosexuality” – so what? I’m sure there are plenty of Gay Apps – so this vocal minority who wish to limit Apps should take a hike.
