Apple ‘Pulls’ Hate Group Exodus International App that Claimed to ‘Cure’ Gays

Another micro-equity in the fight for equality and 1st class citizenry!

After more than 150,000 petition signatures from Change.org members and saturation media coverage, news outlets worldwide are reporting that Apple has pulled an iPhone application launched by Exodus International that claimed to help “cure” gay and lesbian people.

This is a huge, public victory against the dangerous myth that gay young people can and should be “turned straight” — a falsehood that contributes to the plague of depression and suicide afflicting these kids and young adults. Our friends at Truth Wins Out, the organization that started the petition on Change.org, are absolutely thrilled.
