Once again C2NN fails to put the description to this news story that I have submitted! why?

Here is the text of this story:

Truth Wins Out started this petition to Google, Inc

"Why is Google’s online store still offering an “ex-gay” app that targets LGBT youth for the dangerous and ineffective practice of conversion therapy? Tell Google to immediately remove this hate app that marginalizes and stigmatizes LGBT people.

By any standard, the app is awful. It brazenly compares homosexuality to an addiction. It casually trashes LGBT people as living “destructive lifestyles.” Living Hope, the creator of the app, repeatedly belittles transgender people as suffering from “gender confusion.” The group refers to gay men as “sexually broken guys” who can “walk out of false identities” and claims, without evidence, that the “gay lifestyle” is “spiritually and physically harmful.”

When Truth Wins Out previously brought the hate app to the attention of Apple, Microsoft and Amazon, the companies acted with responsibility and swiftly removed it from their online stores. The surprising silence from Google is in stark contrast with the corporation’s stated policies of inclusion, respect and diversity. So why hasn’t the company taken action?

“Ex-gay” programs are a sham. They don’t work, they destroy lives and they are condemned by every respectable medical and mental health organization in the world. The American Psychiatric Association says that sexual orientation change efforts (SOCE) can lead to “anxiety, depression, and self-destructive behavior”, including suicide. So, why is Google offering a platform for such a mean-spirited and dangerous product?

Please sign our petition to demand that Google stop procrastinating and immediately remove Living Hope’s hateful app that deliberately singles out LGBT people for bigotry and ridicule. Every moment that this app remains at Google’s online store, vulnerable LGBT teenagers can download it, so time is of the essence."

I submitted this news story with love and respect for the LGBT community and for transgender people in our world.
The real sickness is the dis-ease of those individuals who not only refuse to accept the choices made by others, but who feel they have the right to impose their ideology and philosophy onto these "lesser" human beings!
Google needs to and in fact must step up and call out these bigots by taking action to shut down the "Ex-gay" programs!
When i think of all the many children, men and women who have suffered and died for no reason other than to be true to themselves, my heart aches miserably!

"The real sickness is the dis-ease of those individuals who not only refuse to accept the choices made by others, but who feel they have the right to impose their ideology and philosophy onto these "lesser" human beings! " --- AMEN with one caveat --- to be gay or trans is not a choice. It is honouring the authentic self, the self created by the Creator.

Lynn Squance thank you for your clarification/caveat " to be gay or trans is not a choice. It is honouring the authentic self, the self created by the Creator." I understand this truth as conveyed by my close friends and so many others persecuted for honouring their authentic self, as you said Lynn Squance, the self created by the Creator!
Respect and consideration, compassion and tolerance should be, no must be, extended to everyone, hence, a Brotherhood of Mankind.
