Wigocp.svg This Conservapedia-related article is of largely historical interest and is no longer the focus of RationalWiki today.
Conservapedia (and religious fundamentalism to an extent) was a major focal point in the early history of RationalWiki, but long ago ceased coming up with new ways to appall and amuse.
Our energies are now spent debunking other, fresher examples of pseudoscientific claims, authoritarianism, and deceit.

I have been thinking about this and praying, and I have to conclude that for the time being I morally cannot bring myself to participate in a project that smears a confessing Christian as a Muslim. The name "Barack" has African roots, not Muslim roots, and I am inclined to believe his Christianity as 1 John 4:15 reads - If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the son of God, God lives in him and he in God. I interpret this verse to accept as genuine one who professes Christianity unless I have specific reason to disbelieve them based on their actions. Is Obama's Christianity a liberal variation? Yes. Is it Muslim? No. Americans deserve a debate based on the issues, not on something with tenuous evidence that implies Islam (if he really was Muslim, the evidence would be clearer than saying "57 states". Until I see specific actions that lead me to believe otherwise, I will not participate in such a smear.
