Apple Removes Exodus Anti-LGBT iPhone App

Apple has removed Exodus International’s “gay cure” iPhone app from the App Store.  Exodus International promotes the concept that an individual can change his or her sexual orientation, either through prayer or other religious efforts, or through so-called “reparative” or “conversion” therapy.  The research on such efforts has proven they don’t work, and has also indicated that they can be harmful.  Based on this evidence, every major medical and mental health organization in the United States has issued a statement condemning the use of reparative therapy. We applaud Apple for removing this anti-LGBT app that had the potential to cause real harm to LGBT young people.
