Plea Made to Apple Over 'Gay Alternative' App

BY Nancy Scola | Monday, March 21 2011

Another dust-up over Apple Inc. allowing a potentially objectionable app into the iTunes store, this time one from Exodus International geared towards "freedom from homosexuality." Change.org has a petition of 98,000 signatures at the moment. One thing that so often seems missing from these episodes: the fact that a technology company is being called on to be morality police, protecting us app users from all that is "mean-spirited" or otherwise offensive.
