, the so-called "ex-gay" organization, has just released
an iPhone app that, according to its website, is "designed to be a useful resource for men, women, parents, students, and ministry leaders." The Exodus website further boasts that its app received a 4+ rating from Apple, meaning that it contains "no objectionable content." Many are not pleased.
Change.org has a petition
asking Apple to remove the app. Change.org was successful in the past in getting Apple to remove the Manhattan Declaration
app, which had received criticism from gay rights and womens' rights groups alike for its anti-gay and anti-abortion content, referring to same-sex relationship as "immoral" and abortion as a "culture of death".
Apple has been a friend to the LGBT community in the past, even donating $100,000 to defeat California's Prop 8 ban on marriage equality. It will be interesting to see if Apple lets the Exodus app stand.
