Amazon and Google urged to Follow the Anti-Gay App Ban Like Apple

Campaigners have acknowledged the Apple brand for removing an application that they claim stigmatised LGBT individuals from their store. This software promoted the thoughts of one of the religious groups in the United States that claim that the practice of homosexual is sinful. According to this religion, members should help in ‘calling up’ other human beings to their natural born gender as per the bible.

The Apple store now claims that the Anti Gay App is no longer available. However, the tech firm has not yet released any comments on this matter.

However, Amazon and Google are continuing to offer the Android version of this Anti Gay App . According to a report to NBC news from Living Hope Ministries which is the involved Christian Organization, they are planning to challenge the action of Apple in court.

The move has attracted a lot of interests from several quarters.
