An Apple app that asked users to sign onto a declaration against gay marriage was no longer available Friday from iTunes.

The Manhattan Declaration app is a mobile version of the manifesto unveiled last year in New York by religious leaders opposed to gay marriage.

Supporters of marriage equality called the app's inclusion a double standard, because Apple has previously rejected gay-inclusive apps.

In responding to the controversy, the group insisted that it loves gay men and lesbians.

“Christians love homosexuals, straight people, women who have had abortions, nuns and everyone else with equal dignity,” the group said in a blog post at its website. “But we also love God and our religious tradition above public approval and political correctness.”

The free app included the 4,700 word document, which users were asked to electronically sign, and a four-question survey. One question asks, “Do you support same-sex relationships?” Users who answer “yes” are told that they have replied incorrectly.

Supporters of the document include Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council (FRC), a group recently labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), James Dobson, founder of the anti-gay Christian-based Focus on the Family, and Bishop Harry R. Jackson, Jr., the District of Columbia's most visible opponent of its gay marriage law.
