Apple has received over 80,000 complaints after it allowed the launch of an iPhone/iPad application which promised to give users ‘freedom from homosexuality through the power of Jesus’.
The application, produced by Christian Group Exodus International, advertises the ‘ex-gay’ movement and urges users to embrace heterosexuality.
More than 80,000 people have signed a petition protesting the fact that Apple deemed the application to have ‘no objectionable content’.
Stonewall Chief Executive Ben Summerskill said: “At Stonewall, we’ve all been on this app since 8am and we can assure your readers it’s having absolutely no effect. Apple might consider thinking about their customer base and the penchant many lesbian and gay people have for ethical consumerism when endorsing an offensive app like this”
