Anti-Gay App Disappears From App Store!

Considering Apple donated $100,000 to oppose the ban on gay marriage, we knew it was weird for them to host an anti-gay app!

As we previously reported, anti-gay app The Manhattan Declaration was once available on Apple's App Store, but now it is nowhere to be found.

It seems thousands of people banned together to sign an online petition asking Apple to remove the app.

"Supporters of equal rights and the right of women to control their own bodies must stand together and say to Apple: 'Applications that support hate and division have no place in the iTunes Store,'" read the petition.

Good for them. Equality for all!

Boooo! Anti-Gay App Approved For iPhone!

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."

OMG! Shameful.
