Apple Removes Gay Cure App From App Store

recoiledsnake writes “Apple has removed the Gay Cure app after the pressure on Apple to remove the app started to snowball, culminating in an online petition initiated by Change.org which collected over 140,000 online signatures from people who wanted the app removed. Searching for the app now yields zero search results and Exodus International President Alan Chambers tweeted the following on Tuesday night. ‘It’s official, the @ExodusInl App is no longer in the @AppStore. Incredibly disappointing. Watch out, it could happen to you. #freedom’ Gay Cure isn’t the first app Apple has(TM) removed for touting an anti-homosexual philosophy. Apple back in November removed an appcalled the Manhattan Declaration which advocated the dignity of marriage as the union of one man and one woman.” I don’t think Apple should have banned it: they should have just packaged it with an App to cure Bigotry.
