* AccentAdaptation: The "Conservative Bible Project" (formerly the "Bible Retranslation Project"), a translation aimed at purging "liberal bias", ran into difficulties after the few users with actual expertise in Hebrew, Aramaic, or Koine Greek were banned for not conforming to Schlafly's vision(!). The result is that the "translation" is simply a dumbed-down update of the KJV, "translating" the 17th century British English into modern day American English, with predictably awful results. The KJV's version of Luke 11:53-4[[note]]"As He said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge Him vehemently, and to provoke Him to speak of many things, Laying wait for Him, and seeking to catch something out of His mouth, that they might accuse Him."[[/note]] becomes this abomination:

[[http://www.conservapedia.com Conservapedia]] is a mirror project of Wiki/{{Wikipedia}}, specifically the one aimed at correcting Wikipedia's supposed socialist, liberal, non-USA-nationalist/anti-American, non-USA-conservative, feminist, environmentalist, multicultural, atheist bias. It is perhaps most (in)famous for its attempt to rewrite Literature/TheBible from a modern USA-Conservative perspective (yes, really). As several people have pointed out, a quick look at Conservapedia will show that it's much less about American Conservatism and Christianity, than it is power-crazed televangelist-style fundamentalism. And, for the last few years or so, about hating UsefulNotes/BarackObama and UsefulNotes/RichardDawkins.

* DocumentaryOfLies: ''Encyclopedia'' of lies. It's even admitted in the essay ''What is sufficient proof that Obama is a Muslim?'', quote: "This is a conservative encyclopedia. Its job is to decry liberals and their ideas at every turn. By promulgating the idea that Obama may be a Muslim we are being good conservatives, because it helps to turn people off him." Whether their claims are actually ''true'' or not seems to be irrelevant to them.

** This is how the site is able to claim that the entertainment industry discriminates against conservatives, which is tough to prove when Republican celebrities such as Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger, Creator/AdamSandler, ClintEastwood and KelseyGrammer (just to name a few) enjoy so much power and influence. Conservapedia's explanation is that, well, these guys aren't real conservatives because they're not ''socially'' conservative (which is the most crucial kind of conservative, apparently).

Not only that, but Wiki/RationalWiki has a "serious" page for Schlafly (in addition to the "humorous" one), to properly inform parents who might consider hiring him to tutor their kids. Small wonder there's sour grapes. Somewhat ironically, the "vandal site" does not actually encourage vandalism of Conservapedia, as they believe the site is funnier when it's totally sincere.

** They claimed Obama did this in 2009 during a speech in Austria, where he said "I don't know what the expression is in Austrian". Conservapedia flipped out and claimed "Austrian isn't a language!" However, while the official language in the country is German, their dialect is very different from the standard form of the language (example: for "chair", Austrians say ''Sessel'' instead of ''Stuhl''), so Obama's statement is accurate, if a bit silly (a similar phrasing would be someone saying they wouldn't know a phrase in British or Australian).

** Guess whose picture graces [[http://www.conservapedia.com/Evolution the article on evolution]] (as of this posting)?
** Hitler, [[JosefStalin Stalin]], Michelle Obama, and a caricature of Darwin's head Photoshopped on a chimp. All they need in there is Mao and Kim Jong-Il.
** In the past, the evolution article actually began with a large picture of Hitler, something which was nicknamed "The Godwin Singularity". [[http://web.archive.org/web/20080913220128/http://www.conservapedia.com/Evolution Link]]
* HarmlessVillain: Schlafly is widely seen as this on the internet, especially on Rational Wiki; a nasty piece of work but easy to avoid as long as you stay away from his digital kingdom.

* HeWhoFightsMonsters: Arguably a minor case, since their claimed point that Wikipedia was largely dominated by the political leanings of its administrators--in spite of attempts to check said potential undue influence--was at least debatable. Of course, their brilliant "plan" to counter this was to set up a different wiki, fill it with the worst possible Far-Right clichés and invocations of PoesLaw, and throw out virtually all the quality controls. Likely averted in that the founders never really intended the site to be anything else.
* HighTurnoverRate: Make an account today and you could be perambanned tomorrow.
* HippieJesus: Inverted; one of the apparent goals of the Bible Retranslation Project is to eliminate all hints of hippiedom from Jesus as he appears in the New Testament.

** Posting ''anything'' positive about [[Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} TheOtherWiki]] will quickly earn you a) a lecture from Schlafly about how Wikipedia refuses to tolerate dissenting viewpoints and only Conservatives support freedom of speech, and b) a lifetime IP ban.

** Despite how hard they mock Atheism and religions other than Christianity, liberals and what have you, don't DARE mock them, even a little. It results in being banned forever.

* IdiotBall: In the infamous [[http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Lenski_affair Lenski affair]] Schlafly decided to pick a fight with a microbiology professor over the results of a twenty-year scientific study which provided quite convincing evidence of the proof of evolution. Apparently, Schlafly didn't understand the article announcing the results of the study (if he even read it at all), and proceeded to run the ball into his own end zone and [[WhatAnIdiot claim victory]]

** Liberals use deceit. Therefore, anything a liberal says is automatically a lie. Ergo, the fastest way to ascertain if a person is lying or not is to get their opinion on prayer in public schools. This is the primary counterargument you will find anywhere on Conservapedia. It is foolproof. [[note]] But if the liberal always lies, then his opinion on public prayer is also a lie, which means the only things liberals tell the truth about is [[LogicBomb their lies.]] Of course, bringing that up will get you branded as a liberal, since conservatives ''only'' deal in absolute, unwavering truth. Such confusing paradoxes can only be liberals intentionally trying to obscure information. [[/note]]
** In regard to UsefulNotes/BarackObama, someone wanted to delete the comment "Contrary to Christianity, the Islamic doctrine of taqiyya encourages adherents to deny they are Muslim if it advances the cause of Islam" (the real doctrine merely allows adherents to Shi'a Islam to conceal their religion if they were under threat, persecution, or compulsion, especially when it would result in them being killed for admitting to being Muslim[[note]]Please note: this applies only to ''Shia'' Islam. Obama's Muslim ancestors and blood relatives were/are East African Sunnis; his Muslim relatives by marriage are Indonesian Sunnis--and not particularly observant ones at that.[[/note]]) because it wasn't actually proof of him being a Muslim. Someone responded with "Actually, it does. For example, if this practice didn't exist, somebody might say, "Obama can't be a practicing Muslim because a practicing Muslim wouldn't deny Islam." The existence of this practice makes all of Obama's claims to Christianity irrelevant, because it proves he would make those assertions regardless of his actual religion."

** User:Conservative declared he would debate any atheist, but only if they paid $17,000 to his choice of Christian charity (he later [[MovingTheGoalposts upped the amount to $20,000]]). When one Wiki/RationalWiki user took him up on his offer (matching the conditions), he suddenly remembered that he would be "[[BlatantLies extremely busy these next 90 days]] [[UpToEleven and probably for the next few years or so]]." Oddly enough, this didn't prevent him from being active on Conservapedia in the 90 days after this…

* LampshadeHanging: In an article about [[http://conservapedia.com/Faithless "faithlessness"]], one of the alleged signs to a person being without faith is the "Need for Proof of God." This seems logical--most Christians believe that Faith does not require proof for them to "know" that God exists. However, when you read the text, [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything it highly resembles Conservapedia]] and its users' redefinition of scientific facts to fit God into the scheme of things more smoothly.
