Conservapedia’s homosexual obsession

Surprise! Surprise! It seems conservative Internet research focuses not only on sex but specifically on issues of homosexuality. Via Andrew Sullivan, this is a list of the top ten viewed pages on Conservapedia:
1. Main Page‎ [1,902,193]

2. Homosexuality‎ [1,537,287]

3. Homosexuality and Hepatitis‎ [516,607]

4. Homosexuality and Promiscuity‎ [420,001]

5. Homosexuality and Parasites‎ [387,851]

6. Homosexuality and Domestic Violence‎ [348,815]

7. Gay Bowel Syndrome‎ [340,343]

8. Homosexuality and Gonorrhea‎ [330,961]

9. Homosexuality and Mental Health‎ [274,431]

10. Homosexuality and Syphilis‎ [264,907]

As previously posted, Conservapedia (and its first cousin, Creationpedia) were created as alternatives to Wikipedia and designed with the notion that raw information is dangerous and needs to be presented in such a way as to promote certain ideas and disourage others. It would be funny if it wasn’t’ sad because education becomes indistingushable from indoctrination.

The articles in Conservapedia were so asinine I thought it was a spoof for the longest time. The right-wing moombats are so off the wall that you can't tell fact from fiction anymore. As for their obecession with homosexuality, surely this is evidence of how the repressed side of a person's psyche reapears no matter what.
