Apple's well-stocked iGospel: Throwing water onto 'anti-Christian' whine
Back when its defenders kept claiming that the anti-gay Manhattan Declaration was removed from the Apple app store because of anti-Christian bias, we ran a certain graphic belying those claims. So now that those same defenders are working anti-Christian bias claims around Apple's corporate decision to yank the "ex-gay" app, we felt a need to repost:
Nine pages of Christian apps (as of 1/10/11). And there's certainly other search criteria ("God", "faith," "religion", etc.) that would turn up even more Biblical hits, if we took the time.
So it aint anti-Christian bias that caused the app to be pulled: It's one business' concern about a scientifically discredited movement that quite undeniably works to stigmatize and delegitimize millions of people! The "ex-gay" backers have every right to make their case in regards to the apps merits. They have every right to boycott all things with a little "i" in front of them. But the iTunes store as "anti-Christian"? It's empirically false!
