Apple Removed "Gay Treatment" Application

A first step towards the victory ladies!!! Apple apparently removed the iphone application of the anti-gay group Exodus International which preached “gay treatment” after a petition signed by almost 150.000 people.

This application which had been estimated at 4+, meaning that it did not contain reprehensible contents, pushed people to think that homosexuality could be treated by the prayer and the therapy. Yes I know just bulls*ts.

The application apparently disappeared from the store. For the moment, Apple did not make a comment on this subject.

Gay rights activists asked Apple to remove it saying that the Christian group uses “scare tactics, misinformation, stereotypes and distortions of LGBT life to recruit clients”.

The group added: “Does that means Apple has pulled the app, like more than 140,000 customers have asked? It’s hard to tell; Apple hasn’t issued an official statement yet. Until they do, it’s important that we keep up the pressure, so that Apple hears loud and clear that ‘ex-gay’ therapy deserve no place in the app store.”
