Conserving the Truth

Fed up with the 'Liberal bias' of Wikipedia, a bunch of God-fearing American Christians have teamed up to offer us Conservapedia, (yes, it does sound like an invention of Ned Flanders', doesn't it?). Confusingly using the same interface as Wickedpedia, the new website lists among examples of bias in Wikipedia 'not giving Christianity enough credit for the Renaissance' (obviously Wikipedia are giving the Muslims or the Commies all the plaudits for this one) and also the use of British spelling. Booh hoo. I'm sure an online encyclopaedia run by right-wing creationists and Bible-bashers is going to a model of objectivity.
