I'm just curious why so many people jump to Apple's defense on stuff like this. Yeah, it's their store. But they also have close to monopoly power over Apps. Why defend that? How does defending this increase competition that benefits the consumer?

Things like anti-discrimination and tolerance are paradoxes. For instance, pushing tolerance inherently shows intolerance for the intolerant. Intolerance can never be eliminated without creating further intolerance in the process.

Apple merely traded politically incorrect intolerance, for politically correct intolerance.
You sir are incorrect, allow me to explain.

This app doesn't offend you, you may support it, but it doesn't offend you, it offends people with a homosexual orientation.

So apple pulling this app would not be discriminating, based on your beliefs. It would be choosing to take a side on whether to allow hate/religious propaganda or to remove it.

This isn't a two way street, There is no real reason for there to be a hate mongering app, or even a app that discriminates.

It's removal would anger you, but apple isn't saying your a bad person, or that anything about you is bad. Just that the application is purely offensive.

See, for instance if I were to call you a Jew homo, and my thread got removed, would you tell the mod he is discriminating?

No, and not because of any fear, but because it is not discrimination, it's cleaning up the grime.

I mean no offense to you, please enjoy your day.

they better be removing all the Pro-Gay apps if they are going to remove the anti-Gay apps.


Its not like the app was all that bad, it just educated people on what the bible says.

It wasn't an app that straight up slanders gays which then would have warranted removal.

Yah because those pro gay ones call christians fags right, and tells them they are a disease and a blight to humanity, and promote hatred...

Yep... if you guys don't support them removing it, then your fine with no rules being set on this forum right.. where everyone can promote that kind of thing, funny I never see you guys complaining when troll posts get removed here.

Lol, you guys are using freedom of speech against your own arguement. If you have the Freedom of Speech to express that you think same gender marriage is okay, then the people who oppose same gender marriage have the freedom of speech to express that they don't think it's okay. I personaly think it's not right, but think whatever you want to think. Like if you put up an app called non-gay cure, and I put up an app called gay cure, it would be okay right? I mean I'm expressing my view on the matter, and you're expressing your view on the matter. No. Because someone group of people had to bring in the word hate. Now, both of our apps would be taken down, but mine would because it's considered "hate" to gay people. Yours would be taken down because apple wouldn't want to insist people on being gay. And thus we have hate crimes, the stupidest crime that I think there ever was. Now, imagine this: I am on one side of the street, and you're on the other side, and theres a police officer in the middle. We're protesting against gay marriage. All of assuden, I say something about gay marriage, something that makes it sound like I don't like it. The police officer would come over to me, and arrest me, and tell me it's because of a hate crime. Now lets start over. Now lets say that you say something about "regular marriage". Something that makes it sound like you don't like it. The police officer wouldn't go arrest you and call it a hate crime would he? Thats my take on it. Not trying to start a flame war.

Ibtl.

Its not a disease that's just an excuse people make up to explain their lack of self control.

Their is no reason to promote hatred. But that doesn't mean people aren't entitled to rally against Gay's either. People can have Gay Pride parades and others can hold Anti-Gay parades.

I for one do not really care if someone is gay or not, I just don't want to see it or hear about it, because I find it offensive.

Apple, please get out of the US and move to China. Thank you. Steve, you can move to China too.
