Just recently, after a public outcry, Apple pulled a dangerous anti-gay app called “Setting Captives Free.” The discriminatory app preys on those struggling with their sexuality in hopes of getting them to sign up for the 60 day course on how to not be gay. The website advertises that:
Our Christ-centered courses are free of charge and help people just like you escape impurity, over-eating, substance abuse, gambling, smoking and more.
I know, you’re already all riled up after only reading that one sentence. Well, you can help!
allout.org launched a campaign to get both Apple and Google to pull these apps, and although Apple responded in just 24 hours, Google has not yet. Google has a great history of doing the right thing in these situation, and although I have no doubt they will respond as Apple did, we can sure speed up the process.
The wonderful people at All Out only need you to go to this link:
They’re looking for 150,000 signatures to get Google’s attention, and are getting there slowly, but need the boost.
Remember that the longer you wait to sign, the faster a vulnerable person questioning, struggling with, and hating their sexuality could get ahold of dangerous and hateful information that we can help prevent them from getting. Pulling the app from two huge companies is a great start.
