Watch: Focus on the Family Upset Apple is Rejecting Anti-Gay Apps


Focus on the Family lackey complains that Apple is forcing people to think like it does be rejecting anti-gay apps from The Manhattan Declaration and Exodus International.

Jeremy Hooper notes the hypocrisy: "The Manhattan Declaration app comes out against 'a right to engage in immoral sexual practices,' and features a whole host of 'pro-family' signatories lashing out those who fall out of line with their evangelical beliefs. And Exodus International is a program solely focused -- SOLEY. FOCUSED -- on using scientifically-discredited methodology to turn gays into some sort of flux state known as an 'ex-gay.' The whole vibe of both programs: Think like I think, diversity of the world be damned! Incidentally, the same vibe that's steered Focus on the Family for several decades now."

  1. Apple will NOT do business with certified hate groups.

  2. Hahaha. What a joke. Apple gets to decide to omit derogatory or hateful apps from the app store. They aren't controlling what you think, unless you are a mindless idiot. They are controlling what they sell you. Family stores choose not to have porn on their shelves. They aren't controlling what you think about porn, just deciding not to sell it. Your local XXX store probably doesnt sell a lot of bibles. They aren't placing judgement on Christians, just choosing not to sell holy books. Apple's policies are not secretive. It's spelled out in the developers contract.

  3. How is what's in your iPhone controlling what you think and believe. Oh yeah, most of the people who actually listen to this guy are probably weak minded fools.

  5. BRAD: Part of your comment made me laugh.
    "Your local XXX store probably doesn't sell a lot of bibles..."
    How many do you think they do sell?? :)
    (Not a snark. I know what you're saying. And I like it!)

  6. That this was ultimately Apple's decision is incidental, as is the fact that the organizations behind them are run by destructive religious fanatics seeking to ruin lives and encourage violence in the name of their God.

    The apps were removed because thousands of people condemned them. To think of Apple or any corporation as a friend or foe is a mistake.

    Ultimately, whatever the feelings and opinions of the people within them, corporations are amoral machines which exist for a single reason: to make a profit. A great many decent, progressive, moral people happen to work for Apple at the moment, but like any corporation, the entity itself is no more moral than a Cuisinart. Threaten any corporation with sufficient lost revenue, and it'll react like a lab rat to an electric shock.

    A chainsaw has no intent, no principles and is incapable of loyalty. Like a corporation, it does what it was designed to do - to cut, and will tend to do that regardless of circumstance. Confusing the tool with whoever happens to be holding it at any given moment can be a fatal mistake.

  7. If I were Apple, I would take the position that apps on the store should be "Promotion of self, not demotion of others."
