Five days and over 145,000 signatures later, Apple finally pulled the Exodus International app from the App Store. As harmless as it looked on the surface, the app dubbed as “Gay Cure” was terribly offensive, especially to the gay community.

A representative for Exodus International says “Our mission is to reach those with unwanted same-sex attractions and help them to reconcile their sexuality with their faith”…ย 

I don’t think sexual orientations have anything to do with faith but that’s another debate, and iDB is definitely not the place for it.

It took Apple a while to pull this app from the App Store, but I’m glad they did.

  • Jason Masters

    The power of naggers lol!!

  • Osu

    i would like to see all the pro Faggot apps removed as well…..

    • Marc

      I would like to see you removed from our world. How about that you freak?

      • lol! agree w/ u! bigots, please move to mars!

  • Burge

    The only thing I wonder is how many people downloaded this …not the people who wanted to know what the fuss was all about , but the people it was men’t to cure ?
    Apple should apologise for letting this app in……

    • Marc

      Moron. Your mom should apologize for birthing you.

      • kadz

        LMAO

      • Burge

        And from all the posts you put on here.. I can see that your a self loving tosser.. I couldn’t less if you love or hate the app in question …it’s a blog where I can say my 2 cents worth …if you don’t like that then …don’t come back……free speach….and yes your have free speech too .. But to have ago at people on here just because you don’t like what thay have say makes you no better …..

      • Marc

        Burge….it’s “speech”, not “speach”. Secondly, “self loving tosser” must be a phrase you made up. Please enlighten us with a definition of your terminology.

      • Burge

        Do correct me when you spell complete with a ‘ l ‘ at the end …
        Other thing is I’ve not said anything about being gay is wrong…I could care …your the one who had a go at me …other thing is, this post is about a app not religion..I don’t know if it was you who brought that into this post but you the one going on about it….

  • John Alexander

    Not all Libs are FAGS but all FAGS are Libs…. wonder why !!!!

  • Marc

    OMG…..John, Bruge, Osu and Jason…..are you all completel morons?? Wait…let me answer that….yes you are. I would like to see Osu removed from our lives as well. Douchebags.

    • Marc shut your man lovin retard self. Wish you were taken outta this comment board, but we ain’t gon get huh? So shut your trap, fag. I bet you’re 12 years old? Maybe younger with stupid azz parents. Idiots in this world… Too many to count…

      • Marc

        By the way you write and speak, I believe you are the one that probably has the mentality of a 12 year old. If you’re going to comment on something, please be able to spell. It makes you look more stupid than you sound. AND…for the record, I am 42 and can probably knock the fucking shit out of your dumb breeder ass! Fucktard.

      • fl0wingfire

        It seems more people are against you, Marc, than for you. It would be advised for you to SHUT THE FUCK UP

      • Marc

        Um, Wingfire…….please go elsewhere. I’m sooooo intimidated by your capitalization.

    • Marc shut your man lovin retard self. Wish you were taken outta this comment board, but we ain’t gon get huh? So shut your trap, fag. I bet you’re 12 years old? Maybe younger with stupid parents. Idiots in this world… Too many to count…

  • dabe

    All of you troglodytes please get off the public library computers you’re using. Take your donkey back your the shack in the Ozarks. Gay guys don’t worry about straight people having sex, why are all of you “straight” guys thinking about gay sex?? Lol how’s that closet feel? Hope it’s cozy because I don’t think you guys are coming out anytime soon. Haha get a life.

    • Marc

      Ha ha ha. Exactly. Like all of the “straight” politicians that are getting caught leaving gay bars, the morons like Joel, etc., are sitting far back in their closets.

  • Jason Masters

    Lmao troglodytes !! Marc are you or have you ever been a troll?

  • Jason Masters

    Lmao troglodytes !! Marc are you or have you ever been a t roll?

  • fuck you JEOL

    Joel you twat! What a wanker you go stick you head up your own arse! Oh wait a minute it is there alreay! What a toool you are lets say that again WHAT A TOOL! Can you even see you own dick or does your mother have to hold the mirror even though you are in your 40s? It is freaks like you that need help and you should go back to your no friends living a live of NOTHING place.

    • Marc

      Don’t forget Joel can’t spell so you know he most likely is still living at home in his little bedroom where he grew up because he can’t get a job. Wait…is that a crack pipe I see next to him?? He probably has more tattoos than teeth!

  • appletiser

    Lol this has to be one of the best comment reads for a while ๐Ÿ™‚ and Marc, if you can’t reason an arguement sensibly then don’t bother flaming in the first place.

    • Marc

      Appletiser…….when you show me the sensible argument anyone else on here has made, then you can speak your mind. Otherwise, go back to your hole. Thanking you in advance.

  • Stfudvs

    Did the 145,000 signatures beat how many people downloaded it?

    all u have to do is bitch loud enough and u can ruin it for everyone else

  • Marc

    Come on Joel you twat sucker. Let’s hear what stupidity falls out of your mouth now. But PLEASE perform spell check before you hit ‘submit comment’.

    • Taylor

      What’s wrong with being a twat sucker?? Oh, that’s right, you’re gay lol. I must say, I agree with you entirely. The worst way to conduct any thesis or argument to prove a point is in a manner not adhering to the standards of the means of communication that person uses to do so (i.e spelling mistakes, ignorant malapropisms, atrocious subject-verb agreement, fragmentation, and every other horrific grammatical mistake that Joel made). It’s one thing to be foreign and not understand the syntax of a secondary language or to have to depend on an online translator to get your point across, but to misrepresent the intellect and integrity so poorly by making statements such as those made by Joel, is analogous with denying the worth of one’s own existence and utility to the entire human race. Can a moderator please find this dick head’s IP address and prevent his ability to upload any means of foolishness to the web?? Anyways, as I’ve posted before, (and please don’t refrain from reading the rest of my post simply because of your imminent preconceived notions of the next clause you’re about to read), I’m an eccentric Christian who despises religion more than I do my worst enemy. Based on the way the local church and organized religion presents Christianity, I don’t blame anyone for being atheist. The truth is, all of the religious practices and rituals that everyone assumes Christianity to assert are no longer even endorsed by God Himself, such as “women only speaking what they’re husbands have told them” as Marc said and “confessing one’s sins to an authority”. The significance of Jesus Christ was to remove the necessity of any ritualistic, repetitive behavior so that as long as we understood his sacrifice and accepted it as being both true and necessary for all of us, then our actions (sins) no longer matter anymore. He pardoned our sins so that God no longer would see them and we were no longer defined by them. Once you understand that, you realize that nearly every church today (that constantly preaches that we must continue to repent of our sin and acquire righteousness) is pointless. They’re wasting their time as God as looking for much more effective means of bringing salvation to the world. Anyways, the reason this is relevant is to this forum is because, although homosexuality isn’t my preferred sexual orientation and I do feel it is in some ways unnatural, it doesn’t matter what your sexual orientation is any longer now that Christ has pardoned us of our sins. Even if there is Biblical evidence that suggests homosexuality to be sinful, it’s no longer relevant to the human cause and struggle and more importantly, no longer relevant to the status of mankinds righteousness with God, that is, if he has accepted and understood this gift of ransom. I’ll reiterate my main point here once more; if God chooses to no longer see our sin, then trying profusely to remove it from our lives is an absolute waste of time and a pointless battle. So, woe to those who condemn homosexuals, as God Himself chooses not to do so, and woe to the homosexuals who try and equivocate the integrity of homosexuality, as they’re wasting their time living for a cause that no longer matters. And, if no ome reads this, woe to me for wasting my time posting it!

      • Marc

        FINALLY!!! Someone that has an ounce of intellect! But, for the sake of the misfortunates, you might want to “dumb down” your post so their heads don’t explode attempting to read it thoroughly.

        Bottom line is that there are more important things going on in the world right now that deserves more attention than someone’s sex partner.

        Thanks Taylor.

      • fl0wingfire

        What he said was WAY more than an ounce. Unfortunately you’re too dumb fucking stupid to understand it.

      • Marc

        Once again, Wingfire, make literate comments besides “dumb fucking stupid” if you’re going to comment. Now go back to your mama’s tit and be a good little boy.

      • Fl0wingfire

        You know, this app was probably made for people like you. >_>

  • ddr

    I think homosexuality is against human nature (and oh btw, the Bible does clearly say it’s wrong, to all you ‘tolerant Christians’), but if gays wanna kill themselves with AIDS, I’m not gonna stand in their way. They’re sinning against themselves, and it doesn’t affect me or anyone else. But to pull an app and make a huge deal just because it’s ‘offensive’ to a special interest group, no matter who, is way overboard. If gay people are offended, they don’t need to download the app. That simple. By Apple taking it down, it not only restricts Exodus’ right to free speech, but restricts us from the right to read what they have to say. I may disagree with gays, but many people have died for their freedom in this country, and the same freedoms extend to their opponents. I am not trolling, I’m just voicing my free speech for Exodus’ free speech. This is the whole reason they put free speech in the first amendment of our Constitution! Some free speech is going to be offensive to some people, but that’s why it needs to be protected, to keep ideas balanced so any government never controls what we say or hear.

    • Marc

      The Bible also says that women should only speak what their husbands have told them. To you think that is applicable to today’s times DDR?

      • ghiles

        obviously Marc is homo so there is no point to try and convince him otherwise

      • Marc

        You can’t “convince” someone they’re doing something wrong when it’s not wrong. Just because a book of hearsay (look it up if necessary) tells you it’s not correct doesn’t mean it’s true.

        Any other bright comment ghiles?

    • Amoeba

      were you born dumb? or did you work to perfect the art?

      • Marc

        Amoeba……to whom is your comment directed?

      • ghiles

        well Marc yes you can convince someone they are doing something wrong even if what you are trying to convince them about is wrong it is still possible to convince them to believe the lies

      • Marc

        Ghiles, I suppose you could convince someone they are doing something wrong if they are simple minded.

      • fl0wingfire

        Just leave it, Marc’s too stupid to comprehend sense.

  • Danny

    Marc how do you know for a fact that the book is not true.

    Man inside Man is not what we are made for. Feelings are deceitful and we all take feelings as the standard to live by.

    Maybe the bible is right but we are looking at it from what we feel is wrong or right but how do you or I know for sure that we are right or wrong in light of the Word.

    There is a reason why homosexuality is wrong in the word just like liars, killers, blasphemers, adulteres, and like are also wrong.

  • Danny

    *and the like are also wrong…..

    • Marc

      Danny…….I would LOVE to hear your reasoning for grouping gays with “liars, killers, blasphemers” and adulters. This should be interesting.

  • Now, hopefully, Exodus International will sue Apple for unfair, illegal violation of their First Amendment free speech rights. While I disagree with EI’s viewpoint on Christianity and homosexuality and their aims, they have a right to their views and to express them as long as they aren’t violating others’ rights, and they aren’t. I understand, and partially agree with, Apple’s tight control of the iOS app store, but I strongly disagree with ANY company unfairly, illegally violating the First Amendment rights of any person or group.

    • Marc

      Thunderwing, it’s more likely that Paris Hilton will form a complete, coherent sentence than Exodus winning that suit.

  • Danny

    That’s the thing Marc it’s not my reasoning it’s what the book you believe is wrong says it so.

    • Marc

      Are you married Danny? If yes, does your wife only speak what you have told her to believe? Now think about that question real long and hard before you respond. Because if your book is 100% correct, she should not speak otherwise.

      • ghiles

        Marc did you not even read what Taylor had said? If you read more than just one verse and take it out of context it will sound different than reading the other things that go with it….

      • Marc

        But Ghiles……that’s what you people do to the Bible. You take one verse out of context and say that “it’s God’s word”. Come one……have a better argument than that, please.

  • Danny

    Marc if you are going to discuss the word you need to have had experiences with it on a pure individual level. If you are going to speak about the word with no experience you will never agree with anything but your own opinion of what it says.

  • Danny

    To answer your question those comands were given to the Hebrews concerning the things of God and his tabernacle.

    • Marc

      I do not need experience with the “word” because I have a brain and can think for myself. I do not need some outdated book to tell me what is right and what is wrong. Today, your book is used to control the masses of stupid people (see above) who think killing someone is the same as being gay! Come down off your cross…….someone out there needs the wood.

  • Maciek

    Good!

  • Maciek

    the level of backwardness and the ignorance of people terrifies me. all you prejudiced homophobes, when you begin to respect others? when someone respect you, do the same!

    • Marc

      That’s why I’m glad I live in a state that doesn’t allow inbreeding or polygamy. OH! There’s a good one for you Danny. What’s your take on polygamy? Wouldn’t you lump that in with adultry???

  • Danny

    Then there is your answer with no experience you can’t speak about it at all. So why even comment on a blog opposing something you know nothing about.

  • Marc

    The blog is not about the bible! It’s about morons who think they can change people the way they were born!!!!!

      This blog is about what…! No it’s about a App

    • Marc

      Your most intelligent response so far.

  • Danny

    My iPhone messed up lol…..

    Marc what are you defending with your reasoning? If you believe something is wrong but I say it’s not how can anyone be right?

  • Danny

    We need standards and someone needs to be the leader and set them. So if every human being have their own opinion then who is in charge of all of this?

    • Marc

      Standards that break laws are necessary. i.e. killing, stealing, etc. Standards that tell you I can’t love someone is not necessary.

  • Meo0o0111

    Marc it’s appalling how poorly you represent the gay community ๐Ÿ™ I mean what’s with all the hate towards straight people? If you show respect you can get some back ๐Ÿ™

    • Marc

      I never said I represented anyone but myself. Do not put words in my mouth. And please……show me where the gay community has been respected?? Talk about being simple.
      Go back into your bubble-wrapped home.

    • Marc

      And if you take a look at the initial comment at the top, do you think that is a sign of respect?? Yeah, I didn’t think so.

      • Meo0o0111

        Ya I know what you mean I get annoyed when people say that kinda stuff too :/

  • Marc

    It’s not about anyone being right. It’s about people that think being gay is wrong. Why is that such a bad thing? Some people are attracted to whites, some blacks, etc. It’s a choice they make or it’s something that you automatically have when you are born. During the slave days, if you were caught with a black person, you were killed. However, isn’t it interesting that there were so many mixed children born from that time period? How did that happen? Because someone was attracted to that individual. It wasn’t wrong…..it was what they felt was right. I’m not the one on here trying to push my belief on anyone. I’m merely trying to stand up for something your people find wrong because you stand behind some book that was written so long ago that most of it no longer applies!!

    • fl0wingfire

      First of all…are you gay?
      And in reply to your comment about mixed children born in that time period….have you heard of a thing called “rape?”
      Just wondering…

      • ghiles

        lol

      • Marc

        Wingfire……you are SO boring and your comments are not worth responding to any longer. And if you would have read this entire thread, I’ve already confirmed that I am gay. Another moron folks. Let’s give him a hand.

      • Fl0wingfire

        You’re boring too. Rather, I find u boring and annoying. Go troll elsewhere, I’m sure the majority of the people reading this agree. You never answered my question by the way. If you’re the moron I think you are you probably think you’ve already answered it, so here it is again, “Have you heard of something called rape?” It’s a form of assault that can lead to involuntary pregnancy, which negates your statement on how mixed children were born during the slave period solely because “they felt it was right.”
        I’m inferring you vision problems, seeing as there is no way one can miss the first 2 letters of my handler. Go see your eye doctor, you troll.

  • Meo0o0111

    I was just saying that your way of going about it is wrong antagonizing your audience is an easy way to start a fight not the way you win an argument ๐Ÿ™ and don’t get me wrong I’m in GSA and I still go to church I don’t believe the bible word for word because a lot just isn’t right but I just think that we should show love on all sides ^.^

    • Marc

      I show love when love is shown to me. If you start a conversation with “i would like to see all the pro Faggot apps removed as wellโ€ฆ..” ….ummm….where’s the love in that statement? And please. Antagonizing these people is the only way they seem to understand. There are so many groups out there that use the word “hate” in regards to gays and you want me to be compassionate to them? Good luck out there in your little world.

      • Meo0o0111

        I know that some people are insensitive when it comes to the whole sexuality and I agree with you that people shouldnt spread that kinda hate but by antagonizing them we’re only creating more hate. I’d like to use the civil rights movement as an example there peaceful protests are what helped get the problem noticed and we’ll never make any progress by picking fights

  • Marc

    Feel free to continue the conversation. I’m leaving to go home now to my partner of 7.5 years. I’ll check back in hopefully to see more brillilant statements made by such loving people in the world.

  • Danny

    Now that shows me where you are thank you for that now we can talk better. It is not that we (who ever you think we are) stand behind a book that says it’s wrong. I have many gay friends and we get into talk like this all the time. You are right it is a choice or birth or abuse or mistake or whatever you want to call it. The fact remains that it just isn’t correct in how we are designed. We were not meant for the same sex life as all the other crazy things we do in this life. So the question still remains who is the standard the rock that does not change like the wind?

    • Meo0o0111

      But the wind can change the shape of a rock ^.^ I mean there are parts of the bible for slavery but we don’t see the church preaching that ^.^

    • Marc

      Danny, I just read your comment again and it’s funny how you say it’s not correct in how we are designed. Not all people want children, which is the point I believe you are eluding to and therefore do not NEED to be designed by your definition of “right”.

  • Danny

    Meo do you know the word have you any experience with it like you have with the choices you’ve made outside of it?

  • Meo0o0111

    I’m a catholic ^.^ My parents raised me going to Sunday school and I go to church every Sunday why?

  • Danny

    Let me make one thing very clear PLEASE if you are going to nit pick the Word at least bring some knowledge of it into your conversations. Speaking on something you know nothing about is pointless! Now if you are going to justify the way you live by your own standards how do you know for a fact that the Word is wrong or outdated like some think, not picking on you Marc?

  • Danny

    Being a Catholic, Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, Buddist etc has nothing to do with the knowledge you gain outside of it for you only follow you.

  • Meo0o0111

    What do you mean by the way I live? Im straight^.^ im in GSA because i feel no one should hate ^.^ And I don’t say it’s wrong I just say it’s open to interpretation and if you read the bible cover to cover you notice a lot of contradiction ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you do know I mean you no disrespect when I say this

  • Danny

    Non taken at all. I know this is not easy of a discussion online cause there are so many factors in play. You are right on the cover the word does look that way and I have had my share of difficulties understanding them many time. But that doesn’t stop me from trying to dig deeper to know what, why, how things unfolded this way don’t you?

  • Meo0o0111

    Ya I know what you mean ^.^ if i diddnt want to know more I wouldn’t have read more ๐Ÿ™‚ and I guess it shaped me a little bit because I took from it that I should love everyone and that’s what I do by keeping the hate down ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Danny

    So right Thank you Meo and Marc this was good!!!!!! : )

    This is ridiculous, being gay is a huge sin and deffinetly has a lot to do with your faith. A good app comes in to help this homosexual problem (yes it’s a problem and not natural, read the bible, Sodom and Gamora destroyed because of there sin) and it gets removed. We need more apps like this to help our spirituality. The world is losing it’s mind. We all need god.

    • Rodrigo

      I wish there was an app for curing people from christianity! That’s a real problem!!

      • Marc

        I wish there was an app for curing stupid people. I have a long list from this post that should download it IMMEDIATELY! Bryan…..wanna be first???

    • Marc

      Bryan, Bryan, Bryan. The bigger sin was when you were born my friend. And the problem is that you have been brainwashed….most likely by the people that raised you. Did you get molested by your father and therefore feel the need to hate gays?? I’m leaning towards yes, but that’s just my opinion.

  • winston

    Why when we don’t like something do we insist on bringing up facts from the bible? The bible can be interpreted many different ways depending upon who is reading it. The bible was also written in a different time for a different time.

    I would be curious to know if the Gay haters above follow all of the passages mentioned in the holy book? I truly doubt it. We are also supposed to give all our money to the church but I highly doubt many do that, do we crucify them??

    More importantly we need to worry about ourselves when it comes to who we love and live this short time here on earth as happy as possible and stop worrying about what others do. I don’t really care what anyone else does as long as they are happy and they don’t hurt others. I think that would make God a happier God…

    Until you experience raising two sons exactly the same way and one turning out to be Gay you will never know what if feels like. You will know from a young age that it is NOT something they want. You can try to beat it out of them or pray it out of them but you will not change them, as I am living proof of that. I am Christian but like many things in the bible it must be adapted to the times as we have done to so many passages throughout history and will continue to do so.

    So to all you haters find something better to do with the intelligence God gave you and do something good for the world and lets pray that when you spread your seed you don’t have a gay child as you will have a different understanding of what it is like. How does the saying go, “Don’t say anything until you have walked in someone elses shoes”.

    When it’s your time to go it’s between you and your maker only, so quit worrying about who others want to love. It’s hard enough to find true love in the heterosexual world which I live in and there are a lot of sick people out there that claim to be normal do we hate them as much?

    Bottom line everyone should mind there own business!!

    • Jason Masters

      I totally agree with you mate!!

I know the bible is somewhat outdated on this subject because it’s not a choice it’s what they are born into I feel they are blessed and God loves them just as much as he loves all of us it takes time for people to adjust to tolerance it’s a learning curve. In my younger days i used to think the same way now by meeting and getting to know actual gay people I know better. I wish other people would just learn to accept what they don’t understand and let people live.
