[edit] Islamophobia

There seems to have been a flurry of islamophobic news stories on mpr recently. Is this new cp policy or has it always been so blatent and I have just not noticed? AMassiveGay (talk) 20:32, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

Uh... well, the right wing tends to get on little self-supported bursts of hatred of things. Islam makes the list often enough. I haven't really noticed conservapedia being different from any of the rest of the clogosphere in that regard. Ikanreed (talk) 20:39, 19 November 2014 (UTC)
I guess a handful out of a pile is a flurry, but, islamophobia is absolutely nothing new for CP. They just go through peaks and down periods on whether the enemy is the evil muslims or somebody else. --Miekal 20:08, 20 November 2014 (UTC)
CP has a higher parodist-to-sincere wingnut ratio than the clogosphere as a whole, which makes "policy" a meaningless term. VargasMilan is a good example. He's a nasty little troll but has been stirring up the Islam mud of late. SamHB, bless his heart, takes him seriously and defends reason.img It's all so damned predictable.

[edit] Hello

Hi, new user here.

I read the ridiculous CP "article" about "Does God have a sense of humor?" and wrote refutations to some of the most ridiculous "arguments", in the talk page. For example, I pointed out that if God is the opposite of atheistic political leaders, since Mikhail Gorbachev is an atheistic political leader and also a criticizer of Putin, God must like Putin; that there is no mystery to the Easter Island statues: the Rapa Nui built them, period, and to say that nobody knows who built them IMO borders on racism; that North Korea can be quite funny at times, and that Germany, where the Christian Democratic Union is a very strong party, is also known for its lack of humor; and that if God has humor because men have humor and men are made in the image of God, then as men are sexually attracted to women and men are made in the image of God, God must also be sexually attracted to women.

"Whoohoo look what I did on Conservapedia! Lookit! Looooook! Oh I got blocked." SophieWilderModerator 20:25, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
Don't you know that to troll CP you must be formless? The CP sysops saw Hinmatóowyalahtqit unprepared and swooped like a falcon. Fonzie (talk) 21:52, 22 November 2014 (UTC)

For God's sake, please don't call me a troll.

I read about CP in a news article about Citizendium. I went to CP and read a bunch of articles, including "Evolution", but "Rapa Nui statues are unexplained" was what finally made me post, as that shows...well...utter ignorance. I initially wrote only about that, but then I read some more "evidence" for God having humor so I wrote some more. Then they banned me and I was looking for a place to complain, because I was really mad, not at the banning, but at my arguments having been deleted, and me being called a troll. Then I found this site through Wikipedia. So no, not a troll. — Unsigned, by: Hinmatóowyalahtqit / talk / contribs

Can I call you Joseph? It's a shame that you didn't do some more homework before your suicide mission over there. There is plenty of documentation on how the site is run. Your outcome was quite predictable, which is what commenters here are saying. Take heart. Rational argument has no place at Conservapedia. Now you know. Whoover (talk) 17:11, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
Your'e a bit of Johnny-come-lately to Conservapedia whereas many of RW old hands were there 7 years ago and saw it decline very rapidly form a "home-schooled Christian Conservative" encyclopedia project of teenagers into a wing nut propaganda site ruled by a group of angry, middle-aged, male bullies.

[edit] Ferguson

Strange. A bunch of uppity colored people causing trouble and almost no activity on CP? No blatant racism from the overlords? Is anyone awake on that goat-forsaken site? (talk) 19:51, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

Terry and his hate filled friends have been busy on his hate blog though. I don't think he's link-whored it to cp yet. Oldusgitus (talk) 20:00, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
My bad, of course he had within minutes. Oldusgitus (talk) 20:02, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Andy: Liberals Don't Accept That Satan is a Person

Under liberal views of Satan, he is not considered a real person but is the embodiment or epitome of evil, in a watering-down typical of cafeteria Christianity. These liberal views are characteristic of liberal denial.img A person? Not a demon. Not a serpent. Not a fallen angel. But "a real person." Is this Andy or is it a fundie thing that it's Mr. Satan, at your service? Whoover (talk) 03:15, 27 November 2014 (UTC)

I'm sure in Andy's mind Satan also wears tailored suits, Italian loafers, and a gold Rolex. He's also fond of hanging out in back alleys, duping desperate people in signing over their soul in exchange for earthly riches... --Inquisitor (talk) 04:05, 27 November 2014 (UTC)
The courts have tried to treat Satan as a person before in United States ex rel. Gerald Mayo v. Satan and His Staff. They couldn't make much progress because they didn't know if it was legally possible to sue a foreign Prince.-- Forerunner (talk) 04:10, 27 November 2014 (UTC)
