Apple has gone ahead to remove the controversial “Gay Cure” app under their law of being “offensive to large groups of people.” The app was originally aimed at homosexuals in an attempt to convert them to the way of the Jesus Christ.
only took 100,000 signatures and tons of negative publicity to get rid of it. Imma hold my opinion on this one though.
Social norms at its best
Stuff like this has no need to be on the iPhone or App store.
lol pretty funny. A "gay cure" app. Still dont see the big deal, dont like ignore it.
Ya, people seem to be losing the ability to just look past something if it bothers them. With the obvious exception being if you CAN'T avoid it then I can see you having a problem with it. Everyone needs to yell and scream and stick their nose in everything. I personally don't get it. With that said though this obviously doesn't need to be on the marketplace as much as it didn't need to get the uproar over it. Just ignore it and let it fade into oblivion like it would have on it's own.
People have been joining the app just to comment badly about it. A lesson I learnt about the net is that most conversations continue due to some form of hate. Hardly do you get a fully positive discussion (unless its Digg.com and you are trying to become a power user).
Well, it's offencive. and It's good apple took it off. I would have reported it if I saw it, same if I saw blatantly sexist or racist apps.
Huh, I bet if you had a Gay Maker app it would never be taken down. Such a one sided world.
