Christian iPhone app pulled, called ‘hateful’ comment (0)

March 31, 2011

ORLANDO, Fla. — For the second time in four months, Apple has pulled a leading Christian app from its iPhone app store based on pressure from homosexual activists. Critics say the decision could have a societal impact far beyond the realm of iPhone owners. (“App” is short for “application” and is simply a software program for a smartphone.)

One of the nation’s most powerful and popular companies, Apple, pulled the Exodus International app March 22 after 150,000 people signed a petition urging the company to remove what the petition called a “hateful and bigoted” app. Truth Wins Out, a homosexual group, started the petition.

The app reflected Christian doctrine, teaching that people — through the power of Christ — can be freed from homosexual desires. Exodus is a Christian organization dedicated to reaching out to homosexuals.

Last year Apple also pulled the Manhattan Declaration app, which contained the text of a document with Christian teachings. Among other things, the document opposes gay “marriage.” Many leading Christian leaders signed it.
