Apple Pulls "Anti-Gay" App From Store

 CUPERTINO, CA - A free "anti-gay" application was removed from Apple's App Store after 150,000 people signed an online petition describing it as offensive and dangerous.

An Apple spokesman confirmed the free app was removed "because it violates our developer guidelines by being offensive to large groups of people," ABCNews.com reported.

Exodus International, a group based in Orlando, Fla., released the app in mid-February. The group's Web site calls Exodus a "Christian ministry that supports those wanting to reconcile their faith with their sexual behavior." The video, podcasts and blog posts on the app reflected Exodus' mission as a "refuge for people looking for help in their journey out of homosexuality."

Change.org, which led the successful petition drive, opposes "reparative therapy to 'change' sexual orientation," noting that major professional medical organizations have rejected such therapy, which Exodus endorses. The petition maintained Exodus' attempt to target young people is especially dangerous in light of youth suicides across the country.
