A new app that claims to offer a 60-day "gay cure" that will teach users how to finally find "freedom from the bondage of homosexuality" has sparked widespread outrage.

The app is from Setting Captives Free, a non-denominational ministry that purports to teach the biblical principles of freedom in Jesus Christ, the Huffington Post reported.

The free app, which has been available on Google Play since the end of March, features ways to combat substance abuse and gambling, and also teaches users how to attain "sexual purity" with a lesson called "Door of Hope."

An AllOut.org petition published on Wednesday calls for the removal of the app from both iTunes and Google Play. More than 60,000 people have signed on, and the app has since been removed from iTunes.

"It's a 60-day course that tells gay people they are not 'born this way' and offers to help them find 'freedom from the bondage of homosexuality. These so-called treatments can cause terrible harm to lesbian, gay, bi, and trans people, or anyone forced to try to change who they are or who they love," the petition said.
