Apple REMOVES Christian Ministry App After Complaints From LGBT Activists

Apple has removed an App from its store after LGBT advocates made a claim it portrayed being gay as a “sickness,” a claim the ministry says is not true.

Left-wing comedian Kathy Griffin is back to using foul language on social media, this time telling President Donald Trump to “shut the f*ck up and prepare for prison.”

Griffin’s abhorrent comments came in response to a tweet from Trump on Friday morning, where the president advocated for his border wall and reaching a deal with Democrats to reopen the federal government.This isn’t about the Wall, everybody knows that a Wall will work perfectly (In Israel the Wall works 99.9%). This is only about the Dems not letting Donald Trump & the Republicans have a win. They may have the 10 Senate votes, but we have the issue, Border Security. 2020!” Trump wrote.

Apple has removed an App from its store after LGBT advocates made a claim it portrayed being gay as a “sickness,” a claim the ministry says is not true.

As reported by NBC News, that the tech giant removed the App created by Living Hope Ministries, a Texas-based organization, following a Change.org petition from gay rights group Truth Wins Out. The petition called the “ex-gay” app “dangerous,” “bigoted” and “hateful.”

“The app falsely portrays being gay as an ‘addiction’, ‘sickness’, and ‘sin,’” the petition claims.

Using foul language, particularly toward Trump and members of his administration, has become common for the far-left comedian.

In October, Griffin referred to White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders as “Sarah F**kabee” while speaking at Politicon.

Before that, she incorrectly referred to First Lady Melania Trump as “Melanie” and called her a “piece of sh*t.”

“F*ck you, Melanie. You know d*mn well your husband can end this immediately…you feckless complicit piece of sh*t,” she tweeted in response to the Trump administrations family separation policies at the border.

Griffin — who was investigated by the Secret Service last year after doing a photo shoot with a bloody, decapitated head that looked like President Trump — is arguably looking for any reason to complain about her failing career.

After being shunned by many and investigated by federal authorities for her vile stunt, the unfunny comedian claimed in March that she plans to do it all over again.

Griffin said she would do a similar photo shoot with Vice President Mike Pence’s severed head.

POLL: Do you still stand with President Trump?

“I’d do Mike Pence,” she told HBO host Bill Maher. “I’m kidding! Ten months I’ve waited to do that joke!”

She may have said she was joking, but many aren’t convinced after her first sickening stunt.

Griffin told Maher that she found it hilarious that she received so much criticism for her first photo shoot featuring a fake Trump head.

“I’m dipping my toes into touring again even though the Trumps and nobody wants me to work again,” Griffin said at the time.

POLL: Do you support Trump’s ban on bump stocks?

Living Hope Ministries of Arlington, Texas, told The Christian Post in an email that it was disappointed, but will continue its work.

“We are saddened by Apple’s and Microsoft’s removal of our app because of a single person’s false accusations. Regardless of their decision we will continue to make the app and our services available to those who seek them,” said Ricky Chalette, executive director of the ministry.

“We are a ministry that for nearly thirty years has helped individuals resolve their feelings they deem incongruent with their faith,” he continued. “We help people deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ through Bible study and accountability. We walk with them to align their lives with the teachings of Jesus Christ. Through support groups they realize they are not alone and are able to share honestly and openly in a non-condemning atmosphere about their struggles, passions, and victories. From chaos and confusion they often find peace, hope, and a deeper sense of personal wholeness. Our ministry is free and strictly voluntary.”

He added, “In a day when diversity and tolerance is celebrated I would hope it would be extended to issues of faith and practice.”

In a statement released Friday, Truth Wins Out Executive Director Wayne Besen said, “We thank Apple for exemplifying corporate responsibility and taking swift action to remove a dangerous app that stigmatizes and demeans LGBT people.”

Adding a little intrigue to the decision, it should be noted that Apples CEO Tim Cook In 2014, became the first Fortune 500 company leader to announce he was homosexual.

A announcement that was followed up by a CNN interview where he stated being gay was “God’s greatest gift to me.”
