Apple gets pressured to drop “gay cure” app

Over 80,000 people signed an online petition to pressure Apple to drop an app that was designed to help “struggling homosexuals” change their sexuality. As you can easily deduce, it promises to help users gain “freedom from homosexuality through the power of Jesus”.

It used to be that just a few years ago, we would have let this shit slide as a society. Luckily, society has been intolerant of this kind of harmful bigotry, especially in light of all the young men and women who have killed themselves over their perceived “shame”. And who fans these kinds of thoughts? Why, it’s the Jesus-pimps, of course!

Long story short, the good guys won, and Apple pulled this vile bullshit off their app store. Who says I only report on bad news?

    Hey, I downloaded that app (it was free, so I figured I’d check it out.) Now that it’s been pulled, I wonder if I’ll lose it when I sync my iPad?

    And will the bigots learn from this? Nope. They’ll say “See?! More proof of the homosexual agenda!” Obviously stuff like this happens everywhere, but here in America, it takes a particularly cynical and snooty tone, at best. People think that their opinion – as they put it – that gays being together, and even marrying, is wrong and bad for society, is not bigotry and hatred, but a personal opinion to be matched against the “opinion” that they should be able to do so. It’s the same as the argument that atheism is a religion too, just a counter-religion. It’s the favorite attention-misdirecting tactic used by those seeking to excuse the inexcusable. I’ve gotten this sort of thing as political spam in my email inbox, that homosexuality is a choice, a lifestyle, something people actively choose to be and thus should not get credit but only scorn for.

    I evolved from an ape, whats your excuse?

    It’s amazing that such an app was ever allowed to be created, it should never have been distributed. Gay or straight or both is such an old tired argument. Lets all move on and instead of hating people because they are different, fuck it lets just hate everyone.
