Conservapedia criticized

June 23, 2007

Re "A conservative's answer to Wikipedia," June 19

That's a conservative for you: Don't like the facts? Just change them.

The Conservapedia site specifically condemns science and discourages the use of rational thought. It is detrimental to a generation of children who will have the misfortune of being home-schooled by parents who deliberately deny their children a real education while brainwashing them to blindly adhere to doctrine and to hate the rational world around them.

One cannot help but see the glaring similarities with radical madrasas in the Islamic world. I sincerely hope that Americans see Andy Schlafly's Conservapedia for what it essentially is: a madrasa for right-wing extremists -- the American kind.

Schlafly is confusing the terms "conservative" and "Christian" by naming his online encyclopedia Conservapedia. There are many conservatives who aren't Christian. Perhaps he should call it a Christopedia.
