Google announced that it would remove an app that promotes conversion processing from its Play Store after returning from an LGBT advocacy group.
A company spokesman told The Hill in a statement that it had removed the app for Living Hope Ministries, which promotes "committed, monogamous, heterosexual" relationships and says "anything less than this ideal lacks God's view of humanity."  "After consulting external law groups, reviewing our policies, and making sure we had a thorough understanding of the app and its relationship to conversion processing, we decided to remove it from the Play Store in accordance with other app stores," says Google -talsmanden.
The tech giant decided to remove the app after LGBT rights group Human Rights campaign group suspended Google from its Corporate Equality Index (CEI).
"The so-called conversion treatment" includes a number of dangerous and abused practices that mistakenly claim to change a person's sexual orientation or gender identity or expression, "said CEI's footnotes." Pending remedial action from the company address this app that may cause damage to the LGBTQ community, suspend the CEI value. "
