Apple Sets Example with ‘Anti-Gay App Ban’
Chicago non-profit Truth Wins Out recently thanked Apple for banning an anti-gay app that promoted a US religious group from its Play Store.
The Christian organization behind the app, Living Hope Ministries, says that homosexual practice is sinful and urged its members to “call up” others to their natural-born “biblical gender”.
However, Apple removed the app since its policy states that apps should not include content that is “defamatory, discriminatory, or mean-spirited”, including commentary about sexual orientation.
Truth Wins Out says that companies like Google and Amazon should follow Apple’s example and stop selling the app which is dehumanizing to LGBT people.
