Here´s the new right wing tool, the Conservapedia. Conservapedia is made of using the Wikipedia brand association for the exact opposite of Wikipedia namely to promote unbalanced views on topics. Conservapedia is the conservatives view of the world. Here´s homosexuality for example according to the Conservapedia and according to the Wikipedia. You will see what I mean.

You might not like the conservative point of view, but as far as I’ve read everything there said is true.

conservapedia tells only one side of every subject. It quotes people who are telling lies and it spins things. For example: [I]”Studies have long indicated that homosexuals have a substantially greater risk of suffering from a psychiatric problems (suicide, depression, bulimia, antisocial personality disorder, and substance abuse).” [/I]
This is a fact indeed, but they try conclude from this that homosexuality is a psychiatric disorder. The real reason for these problems is according to studies social rejection.

This is just one example of how they spin the facts. There is no liberapedia because the “left” view is probably closer to the real world and the real truth. And has therefor not so much the need to create it’s own ignorant “encyclopedia”.

snipfer, you probably mean partially true which is still far from objective. Just check the references. Or check the definition for “Irak” in the Conservapedia. Nor true, nor objective.

I see wikipedia as a balanced tool and see conservapedia as an unobjective consultation tool

check the definition of Homophobia
“The suffix “phobia” [11] suggests an irrational fear, but it is most often used as a attack term by gay rights groups to suggest that opposition to homosexuality is irrational and hateful.”

then see the latest example of it:

“27/05/2007 | Moscow Gay Pride: Cappato and other Members of the Radical Party attacked by a mob and arrested by the police while trying to deliver a letter to the Mayor”

thanks the Vatican for this wonderful cultural heritage!

“Liberal” in french means “capitalist”, don’t ask me why.
Si Liberpedia is indeed very poor, cannot be edited like wikipedia, and is not even funny.
It’s all about people who cry because big nasty socialist government don’t let them exploit people as much as they want.

There is truth, and then there is religion. That’s what it boils down to.

There’s a liberalpedia at (note only one “l”); and which is bascially a place set up to mock conservapedia but also has content of it’s own.
