A letter from Chuck Colson, Texas Pastor Council
Shockingly Apple has turned us down again, and we need you to act at once. Please call (408-996-1010) or email Steve Jobs (firstname.lastname@example.org) at Apple today and tell him of your displeasure.
As you know, on December 8 we re-filed the Manhattan Declaration iPhone app with nothing except the Declaration and the opportunity to sign showing support.
Apple rejected the app, saying in a letter on December 22 that the app contains “references or commentary about a religious, cultural or ethnic group that are defamatory, offensive, mean-spirited or likely to expose the targeted group to harm or violence will be rejected. We have evaluated the content of this application and consider its contents to be objectionable and potentially harmful to others.”
What this means is that the teachings of the Bible itself are offensive, even dangerous.
