Gay Activists Target Exodus iPhone App

Ad Feedback

Gay activists are targeting another Christian ministry's iPhone application.

Change.org wants the app for Exodus International discontinued. Exodus is a Christian ministry that helps Christians who struggle with homosexuality.

Homosexual activists also are targeting the Exodus app's ratings, which sometimes are critical in helping an iPhone owner determine whether to download an app.

The Baptist Press reports that as of March 11 the Exodus app was rated two out of five stars based on 77 ratings -- most of them negative.

Jeff Buchanan is senior director of church equipping and student ministries for Exodus International. He discussed why the app is being targeted, the ministry's strategy to keep Apple from pulling the app, and what iPhone users can do to help, on CBN News Channel Morning News, March 15.

One reviewer called Exodus a "fanatical group" and another said it was "as dangerous to Christianity as al-Qaeda is to Islam."

Based on their ideology, reviewers are rating it either five stars or one star. The app is free.

Change.org says Exodus' message is hateful and bigoted.

Apple decided to pull the Manhattan Declaration iPhone app several months ago after pressure from gay activist groups.
