 The above picture is from the Washington Times article, referred to below.

The Washington Times, April 18, 2011, had an article, Censorship rotten to the core, by Peter Sprigg,[1] about the computer giant, Apple, bowing to the homosexual movement and censoring from its iPhone applications the websites of Exodus International[2] and the Manhattan Declaration.[3] An iPhone "app" (application) is a software program, approved by Apple, that allows the downloading of information from a website to the iPhone. The Christian and factual information disclosed by these websites must be hidden from the public, to the extent that Apple can hide it. Apple is truly "rotten to the core."

The mission and purpose of Exodus International is the following:

Mission Statement

Mobilizing the body of Christ to minister grace and truth to a world impacted by homosexuality.

Doctrinal Statement

We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the inspired Word Of God, the final authority for doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction for right living. We believe in one God, existing eternally in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, fully man and fully God, only begotten Son of the Father. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and lived a sinless life. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, buried and rose physically from the dead. He ascended to the right hand of the Father and will come again in power and glory.

We believe that faith alone in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord frees us from the mastery of sin, and its consequences of death and eternal damnation. He assumed the penalty of death Himself, and enables us to live out of His resurrected life unto eternity. We believe the Holy Spirit carries out this work of renewal in our lives, empowering us to grow in loving union with our Heavenly Father and to walk in obedience to His will. We believe that the Church of Jesus Christ is formed of all those who know Him as their Savior and Lord, regardless of denominational beliefs.[4]

I am sure that the following statement, showing how they have helped thousands of homosexuals change their lives, is especially inflaming to activist homosexuals:

You have come to the right place! For over thirty years, Exodus International has offered hope and help to people seeking freedom from homosexuality. We believe and we have seen in thousands of lives that this freedom is possible through the power of God working in our hearts and minds.

The bottom line – you don’t have to be gay! You can lead a life of fulfillment and holiness as God intended, a life far better than what you have experienced so far.

The journey to wholeness isn’t an easy one, but we will be with you through the process. Our international network of Christian ministries, counselors and churches is devoted to providing the love and care you need as you pursue God, holiness, and healing.[5]

In the current make-believe world of the activist homosexuals, and homosexualists such as Apple, the fact that sexual orientation can be changed must be kept hidden to the extent possible. The truth is contrary to their current false propaganda that homosexuality is an inherited condition that cannot be changed. Another organization that has helped many homosexuals change to a heterosexual lifestyle is the National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH).[6] This is an organization of psychologists, psychotherapists, and psychiatrists who engage in Conversion Therapy. I am sure that Apple would also bar this organization.

The following are statements of the Manhattan Declaration on homosexuality:

We acknowledge that there are those who are disposed towards homosexual and polyamorous conduct and relationships, just as there are those who are disposed towards other forms of immoral conduct. We have compassion for those so disposed; we respect them as human beings possessing profound, inherent, and equal dignity; and we pay tribute to the men and women who strive, often with little assistance, to resist the temptation to yield to desires that they, no less than we, regard as wayward. We stand with them, even when they falter. We, no less than they, are sinners who have fallen short of God's intention for our lives. We, no less than they, are in constant need of God's patience, love and forgiveness. We call on the entire Christian community to resist sexual immorality, and at the same time refrain from disdainful condemnation of those who yield to it. Our rejection of sin, though resolute, must never become the rejection of sinners. For every sinner, regardless of the sin, is loved by God, who seeks not our destruction but rather the conversion of our hearts. Jesus calls all who wander from the path of virtue to "a more excellent way." As his disciples we will reach out in love to assist all who hear the call and wish to answer it. ...

We see this, for example, in the effort to weaken or eliminate conscience clauses, and therefore to compel pro-life institutions (including religiously affiliated hospitals and clinics), and pro-life physicians, surgeons, nurses, and other health care professionals, to refer for abortions and, in certain cases, even to perform or participate in abortions. We see it in the use of anti- discrimination statutes to force religious institutions, businesses, and service providers of various sorts to comply with activities they judge to be deeply immoral or go out of business. After the judicial imposition of "same-sex marriage" in Massachusetts, for example, Catholic Charities chose with great reluctance to end its century-long work of helping to place orphaned children in good homes rather than comply with a legal mandate that it place children in same-sex households in violation of Catholic moral teaching. In New Jersey, after the establishment of a quasi-marital "civil unions" scheme, a Methodist institution was stripped of its tax exempt status when it declined, as a matter of religious conscience, to permit a facility it owned and operated to be used for ceremonies blessing homosexual unions. In Canada and some European nations, Christian clergy have been prosecuted for preaching Biblical norms against the practice of homosexuality. New hate-crime laws in America raise the specter of the same practice here.

In recent decades a growing body of case law has paralleled the decline in respect for religious values in the media, the academy and political leadership, resulting in restrictions on the free exercise of religion. We view this as an ominous development, not only because of its threat to the individual liberty guaranteed to every person, regardless of his or her faith, but because the trend also threatens the common welfare and the culture of freedom on which our system of republican government is founded. Restrictions on the freedom of conscience or the ability to hire people of one's own faith or conscientious moral convictions for religious institutions, for example, undermines the viability of the intermediate structures of society, the essential buffer against the overweening authority of the state, resulting in the soft despotism Tocqueville so prophetically warned of.1 Disintegration of civil society is a prelude to tyranny.[7]

We see that the Manhattan Declaration is particularly offensive to homosexualists and other liberals, because  it also contains statements of its Christian orientation, and pro-life statements.

This action of Apple is the epitome of the "head-in-the-sand" syndrome. To promote this liberal cause, facts must be hidden, opposite opinions and supporting facts must be censored, and people must be made to believe that truth is false and that things that are false are true. This is not new. It has been successfully taking place in America, Canada, and other countries around the world ever since the liberalism of the 1960s became prevalent, and the homosexual movement began. But in the last few years, it has become extremely effective in destroying the basic human freedoms of freedom of religion, freedom of Speech, and freedom of the press. Although it is by small increments, especially in America, we are fast losing those freedoms. In some countries, such as Canada, it is now being done by law. Facts and truth may not be presented or considered, on certain things contrary to the liberal agenda – and especially on homosexuality. In place of teaching facts, and true history, false doctrines are being taught our children and young people, from kindergarten to college. This insidious brainwashing of false liberal doctrines is the worst thing that has yet happened to America, with the possible exception of once allowing slavery and slave trade. Our country was built on the Judeo-Christian values of truth and liberty. These values are now being ground into the manure of liberalism.

However, hiding facts about homosexuality is not the worst thing that is being done. The homosexualists have had success in presenting false history, changing the dictionary, and even changing the Bible, to present false homosexual propaganda as fact. Our children are being taught in school that the filth of sodomy is an acceptable lifestyle, and are being encouraged in engage in it, and they do.[8]

The homosexualists have gained substantial control of most of our large corporations, the media, and academia. They brainwash the public with a deluge of false propaganda supporting sodomy, which is synonymous with homosexuality.[9] 

For normal people who have not studied it, the details of the vile and despicable acts in which homosexuals engage, and by which they get their classification, are both shocking and disgusting. Some of their acts are so bizarre and depraved that they are hard to believe, but they are true and well established. When people can be brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an acceptable thing in our society, they can be convinced that wrong is right and right is wrong on anything.[10]
