New App “Cures” Homosexuality?
The people at Apple are under scrutiny today for approving an app that claims to "cure" homosexuality.
The app, called Exodus International, is targeted at ‘homosexual strugglers’ and teaches them that gay people have a choice about their sexuality.
Its Christian makers claim the app gives them a chance of ‘freedom from homosexuality through the power of Jesus’.
The app was given a four-plus rating by Apple, meaning it was found to have no objectionable content. A lot of people disagree.
So far, more than 90,000 people have signed a petition demanding that Apple remove the app from the iTunes store.
The app's description claims, "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."
