CUPERTINO, Calif. – Without a peep of a press release, Apple has removed an anti-gay iPhone app that sparked considerable outrage in the LGBT community and beyond.
The app for the Manhattan Declaration was described as a “call of Christian conscience” invited users to take a stand against gay marriage by signing a document penned by certain Christian clergy, scholars and others opposed to equality.
Change.org blasted the app for fostering “homophobia and extreme anti-choice views” and started a petition to get Apple to remove it from the iTunes store.
Today, a search for the Manhattan Declaration app at apple.com came up empty.
Apple has a history of rejecting apps that are gay-related, yet it is the LGBT community that faithfully buys its products, especially the iPhone.
