Apple Takes On Manhattan (Declaration)

There’s this thing called the Manhattan Declaration which describes itself as a “Call of Christian Conscience.” It was released last year by a bunch of prominent Christians “in defense of the sanctity of life, traditional marriage, and religious liberty.”

To promote their cause, they produced an Apple App for use on iPhones, iPads, etc. Apple originally approved the App but then pulled it after the Thanksgiving holiday because it “because it violates our developer guidelines by being offensive to large groups of people.” Offensive, presumably, to pro-choice people and those in favor of gay marriage.

I predict quite a backlash. Certainly there are apps out there right now that are violent, racy or otherwise offensive to large groups of people. Where do you draw the line?
