WTF?! We want answers!
Apple has approved Manhattan Declaration, an app toted as a "call of Christian conscience" that invites users to stand against gay marriage by signing a 4,700-word document created by Christian clergy and scholars.
The app also "speaks in defense of the sanctity of life, traditional marriage, and religious liberty" and according to its creators, "issues a clarion call to Christians to adhere firmly to their convictions in these three areas."
Users answer a brief, 4-question survey that includes questions like "Do you support same sex relationships?" or "Do you support the right of choice regarding abortion?" If you answer "yes" to any of the questions, you'll be told you replied incorrectly.
And somehow Apple gave the app a "4+" rating, meaning that it contains "no objectionable material."
Not surprisingly, people are outraged!
Change.org accuses the app of fostering "homophobia and extreme anti-choice views" while "[boiling] LGBT people down to little more than deviant cretins."
Creators of Manhattan Declaration has already responded saying:
"These radicals often pollute the debate with ranting. They rant about 'equal rights,' without explaining how homosexuality deserves it, 'women's rights,' without explaining how women have a right to kill their child, and even 'hateful Christians,' without showing instances where we hate."
