One customer review on the US App Store labels the app a ‘hate-based initiative of the fanatical religious right intending to brainwash and emotionally destroy gay and lesbian people by coercing them to hate themselves based on their natural sexual orientation.’
Gay rights group Truth Wins Out has appealed to Steve Jobs to remove this app from the App Store, in a message posted by The Register.
‘I am shocked that this same company has given the green light to an app from a notoriously anti-gay organization like Exodus International that uses scare tactics, misinformation, stereotypes and distortions of LGBT life to recruit clients, endorses the use of so-called ‘reparative therapy’ to ‘change’ the sexual orientation of their clients.’.
Apple is yet to respond to this request. Last year, Apple pulled an app with similar anti-gay content called the Manhattan Declaration.
Update: Apple has now pulled the app from the App Store.
