Why does Apple allow such insult?

Why is it acceptable to ridicule the faith practices of Catholics? The apps that make flatulence noises are more tasteful than this app.
Would you dare post this terrible app if it mocked Islam or Judaism?
Apple evidently is unaware that penance, known more commonly as reconciliation, is a sacrament in the Catholic Church. Sacraments are actions instituted by Christ during his time on earth, and passed on to us as sources of grace. Reconciliation in particular is critical to the health of the soul; it brings about healing, recovery of intimacy with God, and restoration to the community of faith.
This app belittles the sacrament of reconciliation, twisting it from a tender act of love and forgiveness, into a salacious game where sinning is encouraged, and shame is mocked.
This app offends Catholic practices in a way that would never be tolerated for any other religion. Can you imagine an app that mocked Moslems or Jews this way? It would be removed in a heartbeat. Yet Apple, to its shame, allows this app to stay posted, encouraging non-Catholics to sneer at the sacrament of reconciliation, and encouraging Catholics to demean matters that are critical to their spiritual health. This is anti-Catholic bigotry, pure and simple. I am boycotting the Apple store until this app is removed, and I‘m encouraging all my Catholic friends to do the same. I’ll happily go back to buying music on CDs, rather than support a company that singles out Catholicism for mockery.
Interesting Concept...that's about it.

So you post "confessions" and people "absolve" you. It's like TFLN, FML, Postsecret wrapped in a fancy pseudo-religious venue using imagery of the Roman Catholic church. The idea is fine, but I'm betting many will take offense to the imagery.
Creating the account is a laborious process, as you need to set-up a password for the app and two separate identities for confessing (sinner) and absolving (saint). After that, it's easy to follow the directions, but I think most will delete after the first step.
With that said, I've yet to read anyone's "confessions", which I think people will find easier and quicker apps/ways to
feed their voyeuristic/exhibitionist ways. Update: The one "confession" I did read was typical male sexual bravado and not "confessing" anything.
Lastly, though I disagree with the apps use of imagery, as I think the creators are taking an idea making their own, I don't think the creators are trying to make a statement.
I think the other reviewers are off the mark and leads me to ask this question: why did you download the app in the first place? You can't review the apps until you do. So, is it Apples fault, or yours?
PS:, the app creators give you 5 "halos" and "horns" to absolve/confess and after that you gotta buy some more......a freemium app. Seriously, I'd rather stick my hand in a blender....DELETE.
Save your time and don't bother.
