Andrew L. Schlafly

Andrew Layton Schlafly is a conservative Christian activist, Harvard educated lawyer and a former electrical engineer. The son of John Fred Schlafly Jr. and well-known American conservative author and activist Phyllis Schlafly, founder of the Eagle Forum, Andrew Schlafly runs a homeschooling program in his home state of New Jersey, where he has taught at least 170 homeschooled teenagers since 2002.

He is also the founder of a website called Conservapedia, which promotes staunchly conservative Republican and American-exceptionalist values, and a strictly Young Earth Creationist view of the history of our universe, planet, and life. Intended as an educational resource and promoted as "The Trustworthy Encyclopedia", Conservapedia has caused great controversy in print, and online, primarily over the accuracy of the information that the website provides.
