Gay rights groups are furious over "Confession" application
The Sodomites provoke the wrath of God – François-Rolland-Elluin
Whereas the act of sodomy could bring divine wrath and retribution down on the perpetrators in biblical times, that has changed somewhat dramatically. Today its the Gay Movement that are on the offensive, and religious leaders best tread carefully lest they wake the wrath of gay NGO´s. About time the tables were turned maybe?
This time it´s the Catholic Church who have brought the anger of gay activists upon themselves, through the new application available for iPhone and iPad called «Confession». According to The Guardian, the application have reached 26th place on the download charts, behind Sims 3 and Resident Evil 4-Platinum.
One of the questions in the virtual confession is, «Have you been guilty of any homosexual acts?» This is not the first time new technology have been used to brand a queer orientation as wrong or sinful. An application called, «The Manhattan Declaration», was used to gather more than 5 000 electronic signatures against same-sex marriage, before it was temporarily stopped by iTune.
Gay activist and executive director of the organization, «The Truth Wins Out», is worried that this will lead to neurotic, ashamed individuals:
«This is cyber spiritual abuse that promotes backward ideas in a modern package,» said Besen. «Gay Catholics don’t need to confess, they need to come out of the closet and challenge anti-gay dogma. The false idea that being gay is something to be ashamed of has destroyed too many lives. This iPhone app is facilitating and furthering the harm.»Del dette:
