Self-Loathing? Hateful Bigotry? There's An App For That!
"With over 35 years of ministry experience, Exodus is committed to encouraging, educating and equipping the Body of Christ to address the issue of homosexuality with grace and truth." - the app description for "Exodus International," a new iPhone App made by the ministry of the same name. Apple just approved the app, which is the ministry's mobile technology for curing homosexuality. Okay, look, free speech, blah blah blah, so of course Apple approved the app. However, the company gave the app a "4" rating, which means that it has been determined to contain "no objectionable material." Hmm. So, hate, stereotyping, and ignorance aren't objectionable? Referring to an individual's harmless lifestyle as a graceless, truthless "issue" isn't objectionable? Okay. Good to know, Apple.
