Conservatives Resubmit Anti-Gay Marriage Manhattan Declaration App
A Christian conservative group on Thursday announced it had resubmitted to the iTunes store a modified app declared "offensive" by Apple.

The Manhattan Declaration app is a mobile version of the manifesto unveiled last year in New York by religious leaders opposed to gay marriage.

Apple removed the app from its iTunes store because "it violates our developer guidelines by being offensive to large groups of people."

The free app included the 4,700 word document, which users were asked to electronically sign, and a four-question survey. One question asked, "Do you support same-sex relationships?" Users who answered "yes" were told that they had replied incorrectly.

The group's new version deletes the quiz.

"In reading some of the blogs and press on the Manhattan Declaration app, we understand that one element of the app, the poll, seemed particularly offensive to those who asked for the app's removal," the group's Chuck Colson said in a statement.

"As a sign of goodwill, we have removed the poll and have resubmitted the app without it," Colson added.


A few days old ... be interesting to see how this plays out.
