Me So Holy App Gets Rejected From App Store

Do You Find the Me So Holy App Offensive?

Another one bites the dust — in the iTunes app store — that is. Apple may have been a week late in removing the Baby Shaking App from the app store, but they sure didn't hesitate to reject a new app called Me So Holy. Brought to you by the same guys who made the Anamalizer app (where you can put a photo of your face on an animal — I couldn't seem to find it in the app store), Me So Holy lets you superimpose your head, or friends' heads on a religious figure, then add some text and email to friends. Sounds harmless, right?

Apple didn't seem to find the iPhone app very fun and claimed that it didn't adhere to the rules outlined in Section 3.3.12 of the iPhone SDK agreement. This basically means that the app contains some sort of obscene or offensive material. Now I'm not overly religious, so I can't say I was offended, but I can see how some individuals might take issue with this app. Funny to some, disturbing to others.

What do you think? Was it worth being rejected from Apple or should it have made it into the app store?

I'm moderately religious and I'm not offended by it, but I can see why Apple would have rejected it. I think that probably a main reason it was rejected is because you can send them to friends, which might be done with the express purpose of offending someone. At that point, it crosses over from "If you don't like it, don't buy it" to the possibility of someone receiving something offensive in their inbox. I'm not saying I agree with it, I'm just playing a little devil's advocate. Apple has to be pretty careful because there are a lot of sue-happy people out there...

Blackthorne, I think Apple got rid of the shaken baby app. I think this is hilarious, but I'm a heathen, too ;)

Seeing that there is a fart and a shaken baby app, I am having a hard time getting upset about the latest ohmigod app. But then, I am a heathen, so.... *shrug*

I am not offended by it, but I can imagine that a lot of people would be (knowing our society). Although, to be honest, if you're offended by it, DON'T BUY IT! If you don't like it, don't support it . . . don't take it away from other people. This is an iPhone app, it's not going to hurt anyone.
