Jesus H. Christ

Dear all,

First of all, for those of you who read French, I posted an article on my friend Tom's blog. The article deals with the recent revelations that the H in "Jesus H. Christ" stands for "Hussein" and how it proves that Jesus was a hidden Muslim.

I want to recommend indeed the best research ever done on the subject of the H (until the recent aforementioned revelations): Tenser, said the Tensor: What Does the H Stand For?

I'll let you read but I have to disclose my favorite (after Hussein of course):
"'Hallmark', because He cared enough to send the very best."

That article provided me, when I stumbled upon it in Cambodia a few years ago, with the best laughs in my life to date.

Since then, I've owed my best laughs to Sarah Palin and to Fox News.

But today I've discovered what is going to become my homepage: Conservapedia, "a conservative, family-friendly Wiki encyclopedia", meant to offset Wikipedia's bias against "the achievements of Christianity and conservatism".

The article on Barack Obama is indeed my favorite. It starts with this paragraph:

Barack Hussein Obama II aka Barry Soetoro[1] (allegedly[2][3][4][5][6] born in Honolulu Aug. 4, 1961) is the 44th President of the United States, and previously served as a first-term Democratic Senator from Illinois (2005-2008). Obama and his running mate Senator Joseph Biden won the presidential election[7] after 23 months of campaigning that spent over $700 million,[8] much of it raised from undisclosed or fraudulent donors.[9] Obama spent far more per vote than McCain did: Obama spent $7.39 per vote, while McCain spent only $5.78 per vote.[10]

And the table of contents is hilarious:
Section 13 - "Quotes", retains only one quote from the 44th President:
"I'm a Christian. And so, although I try not to have my religious beliefs dominate or determine my political views on this issue ... my religious beliefs say that marriage is something sanctified between a man and a woman."[258]

Is Conservapedia a joke? A threat? A project with qualities? Well, the answer is complex.

Some articles (or some parts of them) sound like jokes, like parodies of Wikipedia. They remind me of a magazine of the early 1990s in France which, I believe, was called "News of the World" and ran eccentric stories about a man whose tongue was hairy, a woman whose G-spot was in the ear (together with a hilarious picture of her husband fingering her ear with his pinky while reading the newspaper in bed) and so on. A few s:
A liberal (also leftist) is someone who rejects logical and biblical standards, often for self-centered reasons. There are no coherent liberal standards; often a liberal is merely someone who craves attention, and who uses many words to say nothing.
Jesus Christ is the person who changed the world forever with teachings of love and faith, using logical parables like the Prodigal Son that flow from the existence of God.
[Article entitled Liberals and friendship] Liberals often make approval of liberal values a condition of friendship.
Hollywood values are characterized by decadence, narcissism, rampant drug use, extramarital sex leading to the spread of sexually-transmitted disease, lawlessness and death.
Other articles are just like the Wikipedia, just lower quality, like the articles on Bayes Factor or Burkina Faso.

Is Conservapedia a threat due to its mixing bias with apparent factualness, like Fox News? Unlike Fox News, Conservapedia doesn't claim to be unbiased. The term "Conservative" is in the title, so let them have fun!

Long live freedom of speech!
