Apple Under Fire For Approving 'Gay Cure' iPhone App

The application known as "Exodus International," was created by a ministry of the same name that says its mission is to "[mobilize] the body of Christ to minister grace and truth to a world impacted by homosexuality."
The app's description notes, "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."
So basically, this controversial iPhone app was created by a religious organization seeks to help gay individuals become heterosexual. The fact that it received a "4" rating from Apple indicates that the company considered the app to contain "no objectionable material."
"No objectionable content? We beg to differ," wrote TruthWinsOut.com. "Exodus' message is hateful and bigoted." Change.org has since launched an online petition calling for Apple to remove the app that has garned over 21,000 "signatures."
