The Apple Corporation has recently pulled from its iTunes store a mobile app created by Setting Captives Free, a nondenominational ministry which offers free courses aimed at helping users battle “habitual sins,” such as sexual impurity, substance abuse, self-injury, and gambling.
The app was pulled by Apple following protest over one of the courses, titled “Door of Hope,” seeks to free users from “the bondage of homosexuality through the power of Jesus Christ and the cross!”
“If you will apply the biblical principles found here, you can walk through the Door of Hope into a new life with Christ, free from sexual impurity and self-gratification,” the course description reads.
The Apple store reportedly removed the app after the group AllOut circulated a petition, signed by 65,000 people, which denounced the app as being capable of causing “terrible harm to lesbian, gay, bi, and trans people, or anyone forced to try to change who they are or who they love.”
Apple reportedly confirmed to MacWorld that the Setting Captives Free app violates the company’s developer guidelines, which do not allow “the promotion of hatred toward groups of people based on their race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, or sexual orientation/gender identity.”
While Apple has pulled the app, Android users still have the ability to download the app from the Google store.
