Petition to pull “gay cure” app hits 20,000 signatures

An online petition to pull an app from iTunes targeted at “homosexual strugglers” has reached 20,000 signatures.
Apple has not commented publicly on whether it intends to pull the free app from Christian group Exodus International and did not return Cult of Mac’s request for comment.
Last November, Apple removed an app called the Manhattan Declaration from the iTunes store after outcry and over  7,000 signatures on an online poll that the content was an anti-gay and hate-mongering. The app makers asked to have it re-instated to no avail.
The group behind the latest petitionTruth Wins Out, has also asked Apple to intervene but received no response. Signers of the petition more than tripled since our last post on the Exodus app.
They issued the following statement: “If Apple continues to bury its head in the sand, we will hold a press conference in front of their offices featuring sexual and spiritual abuse victims of “ex-gay” programs.”
We’ll keep you posted.
