The Angry Birds have a new neighbor. Exodus International, the so-called Ex-Gay Movement organization, has launched an iPhone app to bring “healing to homosexuals.” Events, anti-gay blog posts, and podcasts will be made available to smartphone users, all in a handy dandy app!

The page on Apple’s App Store page reads:

Exodus International is the world’s largest ministry to individuals and families impacted by homosexuality.

With over 35 years of ministry experience, Exodus is committed to encouraging, educating and equipping the Body of Christ to address the issue of homosexuality with grace and truth.

App aside, it’s worth noting that Exodus International’s Alan Chambers refers to gays as “God’s handicapped children.” The group regularly campaigns against equality for gays and lesbians.

Mac enthusiasts are just not feeling the love for the new app. Comments on the page include, “This is hate-based initiative of the fanatical religious right intending to brainwash and emotionally destroy gay and lesbian people by coercing them to hate themselves based on their natural sexual orientation.” and “This app is little more than a glorified (yet still clunky) web browser to navigate around Exodus’ walled-garden of predictable anti-gay content.”

Will you be seeking “healing” from your iPhone and Exodus International?
