I think the title is supposed to be "Conservapedia, I offer this challenge." It's really only Schlafly and his little team that you pose this "challenge" to. Lyra Belaqua Alethiometer 17:09, 15 May 2008 (EDT)

good idea. How do I change the name of an article? Sanity 17:10, 15 May 2008 (EDT)

I'll do it for you. Very complicated sysop stuff. Stand back. shield your eyes.PFoster 17:15, 15 May 2008 (EDT) my bill is in the mail.PFoster 17:18, 15 May 2008 (EDT)

Deleting a redirect costs lots of cashmoney. Lyra (goldencompass) 17:20, 15 May 2008 (EDT)

It's a union thing, you know. PFoster 17:23, 15 May 2008 (EDT)

So what does everyone think about the page?[edit]

Do you like it? I personally seriously doubt anybody would be able to successfully carry out this challenge. Sanity 19:23, 15 May 2008 (EDT)

It's a bit non-sequiturish in parts. Conservapedia have never claimed that homosexual marriage isn't wanted by actual homosexuals. <font=""; face="Comic Sans MS">Jellyfish!Why don't you quiet down? 19:25, 15 May 2008 (EDT)
I know. But it was easy for the confederacy to support slavery, because they were unaffected. Same logic here. I want them to realize that their views are not shared by the people it affects. Sanity 22:02, 15 May 2008 (EDT)
It wasn't easy, it was necessity for the Confederacy to support slavery, and they were economically, socially, and politically effected by it. Furthermore, CP claims "principled disagreement" with things like homosexuality and sex education, and are hoping to change the people it affects. They do realize, I'm sure. Lyra (dust) 22:13, 15 May 2008 (EDT)

The CP-style Conservatives aren't demanding this stuff because they think other people want it, they're demanding it because they think GOD wants it. --Gulik 22:39, 15 May 2008 (EDT)

It would be way better if people would just specify what the challenge is on the title. That way it's better to categorize the challenges if new ones are raised due to their malice stupidity. [[User:K61824|]][[User_talk:K61824|]] 02:14, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

Why all from one state? I think it should count even if they're from different states. Just don't include other countries, because someone would list 100 brainwashed people from third world theocracies. Still, the all-from-one-state criterion is a bit too restrictive.BlueMoon (talk) 21:23, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

To tell the truth, all from one state could probably be done for most of those, at least. You'd be surprised at how many brainwashed people you'll find here in the states. Just look at the poor kids of people who attend the Westboro Baptist Church. >.>; JfishSoM (talk)

Um... aren't there more anti-abortion women than men?[edit]

If that's the case, it shouldn't be hard to find twenty women who'd at least claim they would never have one and not think they should have the right. In fact, given the low numbers, I'm sure I could find all but the last quite easily if I had the ability to survey an entire state, but that would be easiest. This is really kind of a terrible challenge. Sake Fueled (talk) 22:08, 23 October 2011 (UTC)
