Questionable Motives

Finally, someone is fixing the source of so much left wing bias

Praying handsThe folks behind Conservapedia, a right-leaning version of Wikipedia, have launched the Conservative Bible Project, aimed at getting rid of what they call liberal bias, wordiness, emasculation and a general dumbing down of the Old and New Testaments.

In Mark 3:6, for example, they have changed “Pharisees” – the Jews who were regarded as antagonists of Jesus – to “Liberals” though one user helpfully suggested “self-proclaimed elite.” The “girl” who danced in the Gospel of Mark, causing King Herod to behead John the Baptist, is more accurately referred to as a “temptress,” Mr. Schlafly said. And “hell” isn’t used nearly often enough, conveying liberal permissiveness.

Conservapedia writes on its website that one benefit of the effort is that while “Liberals will oppose it, they will have to read the Bible to criticize it, and that will open their minds.”

Because to a true conservative, to be a liberal means to be closed minded! Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!
