    Exodus International's ministry describes homosexuality as "...a multicausal, developmental issue and that any individual can experience freedom through the support of caring individuals and the healing power of Jesus Christ."

    The group's eponymous app purported "freedom from homosexuality through the power of Jesus..."

    I just saw this and posted it to Facebook. Awesome! If they're going to censor content, they might as well get rid of the bad guys.

    And here comes TonyPerkins ofFRC riding the wahhhhhhmbulance:

    From Joe.My.God blogsite:

    "Liberals are on a crusade to end bullying--when the biggest bullies are the ones in their own movement! Decisions like Apple's are rooted in the same anti-Christian prejudice that's led to the Left's persecution of donors, businesses, voters, churches, and even students. What do you call 146,000 people ganging up on a company because they don't like someone else's point of view? Bullies! They have to resort to intimidation because they know the rest of the country isn't with them. They also know that if they had to debate conservatives out in the open on issues like marriage and morality, they'd lose! If you're an iTunes user, contact Apple and tell them that squashing free speech is bad for business. Ask them to show real tolerance and reinstate the Exodus app!" - Family Research Council head bully Tony Perkins, via press release.

    Previously, Perkins had also attacked the Obama Administration backing the UN Council's resolution to protect LGBT rights internationally:

    "While American forces bomb away at Libya, the Obama administration is launching another global offensive: Operation International Tolerance. As he looks on from South America, the President put troops on the ground today for a meeting of the U.N.'s Human Rights Council, where his diplomats plan to strong-arm other countries into embracing homosexuality. In a major U-turn from the Bush years, the Obama administration is actually initiating an 'anti-discrimination' resolution to force acceptance of the world's gays and lesbians. As recently as 2008, the United States refused to sign a similar declaration because President Bush thought it conflicted with the states' rights to pass things like marriage amendments. [snip]

    "Obviously, FRC believes that homosexuals and transgenders shouldn't be subjected to violence. But this resolution goes well beyond that to endorsing a behavior that dozens of member nations oppose. No binding document of international law has ever recognized a universal 'human right' to engage in sex with a person of the same gender. And although even the U.N. admits that 'resolutions' like this one 'aren't legally binding,' they do help to create a legal norm. We've seen this similar approach with respect to abortion, where countries like the U.S. have tried to insinuate a 'right' under international law where there is none. Our global neighbors have the freedom to believe that homosexuality is wrong--just as they have the freedom to legislate against any behavior they think is harmful to society. That freedom--and their very sovereignty--would be threatened by this effort." - The Family Research Council, an SPLC-certified hate group.


    More and more shrill, more and more desperate in (I hope) it's death throes .

    No such thing as bad publicity. Well, for Apple at least.
