As usual, a bunch of right-crackpots object to Wikipedia's "liberal bias".
So they install MediaWiki on a server, and call themselves Christopedia.

Mostly articles copied from WP, with a few exceptions.
Thus, the article about "racial purity".

Funny, the registrar is in the British Virgin Islands.....

I love this "vandalism" which I doubt was the original intent of the authors:

QUOTE
Bible verse
Ephesians 1,000,000:12
“ "...and god then said that homosexuals are to be loved and accepted,for mankind had greatly mistreated them in the past..." – King James Version ”


Maybe they can borrow from WP's Left Behind game article. Have a read of that horrible Criticisms section.

I see that somebody is having a go against it from a biological perspective. Heterosis and hybrid vigor, indeed. Though I bet if I add Lenny Bruce's suggestion that we humans should fuck each other into a single shade of tan, I bet I'd be reverted. smile.gif

My kudos for unintentional humor in the categorizing of this article:

How about ANOTHER_FUCKING_CRACKER. There's quite a bit of vandalism and much of it is sticking. rolleyes.gif laugh.gif

And the main page is an unattributed complete copy of The Czech Wikipedia. Naughty!

Nasty! I can't imagine the gall of that place calling itself "Christian". I thought the main page was bad; then I saw the "Negroid" article. Awful.

You almost have to admire the complete insensitivity of someone who can put that nonsense on the web and leave it tagged with:

QUOTE
This article may be biased in favor of a liberal perspective.
This article contains unrefined material from Wikipedia and is therefore unlikely to conform with Christopedia's Christian Point of View policy. Please improve the article by removing manifestations of leftist propaganda and political correctness.

I hit the "random article" a few times and this wiki seems completely obsessed with race issues from a highly racist pov. I think it would be unfair to characterize this site as "Christian" even as narrowly defined by evangelicals or run of the mill fundamentalists.

This site is nothing less than a hate-site, each and every article is obsessed with race and it peddles a lot of the standard White-Supremacist arguments such as racial purity, human subspecies etc.

You've gotta love the vandalism to the Bible verse of the day template that has left the main page showing Ephesians 1,000,000:12 " ...and god then said that homosexuals are to be loved and accepted, for mankind had greatly mistreated them in the past..."...

It's not all bad. I was rather taken with this from the main page article on Mr Obama:

QUOTE
After McCain was nominated as the Republican presidential candidate, there were three presidential debates between Obama and McCain in September and October 2008. During the first debate, McCain questioned whether the young negroid was strong enough on national security, pointing out that Obama had voted against funding for several missile systems. Obama then unzipped his pants, pulled out his penis (measuring over 13 inches in length), calmly slapped McCain across the face with his member, and then responded, "Got all the missile I need RIGHT HERE!" Polls after the debate showed Obama surging.

Hmm, no citation though...

The Hitler article is going to take some time if the edit history of this sentence is anything to go by. The original reads:

One of Hitler's fellow pupils in the Realschule was Ludwig Wittgenstein, one of the great philosophers of the 20th century.

It is changed to "One of Hitler's fellow pupils in the Realschule was Ludwig Wittgenstein, a homosexual Jew, and an infleuntal philosopher of the 20th century. "http://christopedia.us/w/index.php?title=Adolf_Hitler&diff=4693&oldid=4692

and then

One of Hitler's fellow pupils in the Realschule was Ludwig Wittgenstein, a homosexual and a Jew, who was an infleuntal philosopher of the 20th century. http://christopedia.us/w/index.php?title=A...4694&oldid=4693

then

One of Hitler's fellow pupils in the Realschule was Ludwig Wittgenstein, an infleuntal philosopher of the 20th century. Wittgenstein was a Jew who would later choose to live a homosexual lifestyle. http://christopedia.us/w/index.php?title=A...4695&oldid=4694

then

One of Hitler's fellow pupils was Ludwig Wittgenstein, an infleuntal philosopher of the 20th century. Wittgenstein was also a Jew who would later choose to live a homosexual lifestyle.http://christopedia.us/w/index.php?title=Adolf_Hitler&diff=4698&oldid=4697

then

One of Hitler's fellow pupils was Ludwig Wittgenstein, an influential philosopher of the 20th century. Wittgenstein was also a Jew who would later choose to live a homosexual lifestyle. http://christopedia.us/w/index.php?title=A...4699&oldid=4698

then

One of Hitler's fellow pupils was Ludwig Wittgenstein, an influential Jewish philosopher of the 20th century who would later choose to live a homosexual lifestyle. http://christopedia.us/w/index.php?title=A...4700&oldid=4699

then

One of Hitler's fellow pupils was Ludwig Wittgenstein, an influential Jewish philosopher of the 20th century who would choose to live a homosexual lifestyle. http://christopedia.us/w/index.php?title=A...4701&oldid=4700

then

One of Hitler's fellow pupils was Ludwig Wittgenstein, an influential Jewish philosopher of the 20th century who chose to live a homosexual lifestyle. http://christopedia.us/w/index.php?title=A...4752&oldid=4701

Neither a site representative of "Christian Conservatives" nor a disinformation site. There are enough "Christian's"of this hate filled type to people a wiki, but they are marginal and speak for no one but themselves and are not representative of any church. Even conservative Christians are likely more likely to espouse racial tolerance and understanding than the kind of twisted literalist interpretation that tortures scriptures to arrive at these hateful conclusions.

Very true. But the whole idea is to hijack the name, Christ, and impugn Chrisitians. And it evidentally works, as the creator of this thread immediately assigned all sorts of other things to it.

Not just Christians. People are capable of doing really bad things when fired by righteousness or self-righteousness. In fact, lynch mobs can't exist without it.
