From Conservapedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Religious Conservatives need their own encyclopedia because they can't handle one that attempts to present a point of view that is balanced. Anything that doesn't viciously promote Christianity is therefore labeled as a "liberal bias".

I think this view is erroneous. I spent 5 years at Wikipedia (beginning in November 2001 - I hold user ID #188 there). And I'm here to tell you that the liberal bias at Wikipedia is pervasive. Nearly every point on which liberals and conservatives disagree adheres to the Liberal POV. This violates the stated "Neutral" POV policy.
In fact I am officially "on probation" for trying to insert opposing points of view in articles which are dominated by the liberal side. For example, did you know that the Chinese government murdered 60 million of its own civilians, under Mao Tse-Tung. When I added that, timidly and tentatively (and properly attributed), the fact that I added this minority view was used as the nail in the coffin of an arbcom ruling against me. They called it "tendentious editing". I call it refusing to follow their own rules.
And lay off the "vicious" stuff. We Christians are not all members of the Spanish Inquisition. I'd like you to delete that part of your comments above. --Ed Poor 00:39, 20 March 2007 (EDT)
