Google has come under fire for featuring an app that encourages LGBTQ gay and transgender people to seek controversial conversion therapy in its online store.
One of the most dangerous aspects of the LGBTQ Movement is that people are being told that things like being transgender are normal and natural, when in fact they are not. Highly respected doctors and mental health workers rightly refer to transgenderism as a ‘mental illness‘, because that’s exactly what it is.
“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” Romans 1:26,27 (KJV)
Now a Christian group in Texas, Living Hope Ministries, is being attacked by the LGBTQ Mafia for creating an app that tells people in the LGBTQ that they are ‘sexually broken’ and need healing that only God can provide. That also is 100% truth. Google is taking heat for allowing the app to stay up in it’s Google Play store where it has been downloaded over 1,000 times already.
Google under fire for ‘pray away the gay’ app in the Play Store
FROM THE UK TELEGRAPH: The app, created by US Christian group Living Hope Ministries, advises young lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender teenagers and adults to become heterosexual through prayer and therapy. The app also offers Bible study-style guidance.
The Texas-based Christian group is accused of referring to transgender and gay people as “sexually broken” individuals who can “walk out of false identities”, and claiming that the gay lifestyle is harmful.
Campaigners have claimed that the app falsely portrays being gay as an “addiction”, “sickness” and “sin”.
Activist group Truth Wins Out started a petition online earlier this month demanding that Google remove the app from its online store. The petition has so far collected over 36,000 signatures.
The activist group said: “By any standard, the app is awful. It brazenly compares homosexuality to an addiction. It casually trashes LGBT people as living ‘destructive lifestyles’.”
Google has been accused of “foot-dragging” after it failed to follow the lead from Amazon, Microsoft and Apple, which removed this app from their online stores last month after being approached about it.
Wayne Besen, executive director of Truth Wins Out, said that it is “unconscionable” that Google is still offering an online platform to this app.
He said: “We are hoping this is simply an oversight from a very large company, rather than an objectionable policy decision that would warrant further action.”
Google’s figures show that the app has been downloaded over 1,000 times since its launch in 2014.
Phil Samba, a London-based social activist, told the Telegraph: “We don’t know who is reading it, who is affected by it and what damage it is doing.
“I think it’s a terrible thing. I think it’s terrible because there are a lot of people out there that don’t understand their sexuality. When you’re young and in the LGBTQ community you are brought up told that being gay is wrong or a choice. For those vulnerable people who are suicidal, it can be really dangerous.”
Last year Facebook was criticised for allowing advertisers to target young LGBT people with “predatory” gay cure adverts on its site through micro-targeting.
The UK Government announced a consultation on how to ban the practice of conversion therapy last year after a survey found that thousands of people were offered the so-called treatment. READ MORE

When you contribute to this fundraising effort, you are helping us to do what the Lord called us to do. The money you send in goes primarily to the building of the recording studio, but it also goes to the overall daily operations of this site. When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations.
But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 12,621 people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 151,781 followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 13,600 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
