"Conservapedia" As seen on the Daily Show - One person's lack of compassion does not equal another's comfort.
One person's lack of comprehension does not equal another's consent.
"Conservapedia" As seen on the Daily Show
I did not believe this, but I decided to look it up anyway.

As explained by Lewis Black, Conservatives feel that Wikipedia, a website which reflects the believes of majority of internet users, is TOO LIBERAL, so they created a Conservative version where it would appear, only conservative opinion "pass".

The example provided on the Daily show is "Homosexuality"

According to Wikepedia:
sexual attraction between people of the same sex and goes on to use such terms as romantic attraction, Social movements and Queer theory

According to Conservapedia:
is an immoral sexual lifestyle between members of the same sex. It is more than simply a sexual act, it is going beyond the boundaries that God has setup and goes on to use such terms as, Abomination, detestable and bloodguiltiness (is that even a word???)

More interesting yet is what Wikipedia has to say about Conservapedia. After a very dry and uninteresting sounding description of the site, it then approaches such topics as Differences in editorial philosophies and Reactions and criticisms. And even there it is clear that the Wikipedia entry steer widely clear of mudslinging.

As opposed to what Conservapedia has to say about Wikipedia. Which first defines it in a fairly... conservative manner, and then slams it by listing Falsehoods, hoaxes and scandals associated with Wikipedia.

Good work Conservapedia! It's nice to see you represent true conservative sportsmanship!

Lastly, please go back and take a really good look at the Wikipedia page about Conservapedia... they actually reference the very same episode of the daily show I am referring to here in the Wikipedia page, and I quote, Conservapedia, and more specifically its article on homosexuality, was discussed by Lewis Black on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on June 27th, 2007. :-)

Yup, it's true. I actually have a friend, netmystique, who blogs regularly about "funny" entries she finds on Conservapedia.
