Apple Store has removed an application developed by a religious group as it encourages anti-LGBT hate and promotes harmful conversion therapy practices. The US-based group against “antigay lies and the ex-gay myth” called Truth Wins Out started the petition for the hateful app to be blocked because it calls homosexuality a sin (no surprise, it is religious) and an addiction (and this is too much even for religious groups). Truth Wins Out thanked Apple for swiftly removing the app from their store, and said the organisation behind it “stigmatizes and demeans LGBT people.” Ricky Chelette, the executive director of Living Hope Ministries, said that they do not call what they do “conversion therapy” and if people are gay and they don’t want to change it, then okay, but these people would not install their app at all.
