(New York, NY) -- Apple is under fire today for approving an app that tries to make gays and lesbians straight.
The free app was given a "4+" rating by Apple, meaning it's not considered to have objectionable content.
The "gay cure" application was designed by Exodus International.
The religious group believes it can free someone from homosexuality through prayer and conversion therapy.
Gay activists have gathered thousands of signatures demanding the Apple iTunes store remove the app.
Earlier this year, Apple was criticized for approving an app that encouraged users to take a stand against gay marriage.
It later removed the app.
