Andrew L. Schlafly, son of prominent Phyllis

Andrew Layton Schlafly (1961–), also known as "Aschlafly", is an American lawyer and homeschool teacher in his home state of New Jersey, where he has taught at least 250 homeschooled teenagers since 2002.

He is the founder of a fundamentalist Christian wiki called Conservapedia, which promotes extremist versions of 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 Trusworthy Trustworthy Encyclopedia," Conservapedia has caused great controversy in print, on the radio, and online, primarily over the (lack of) accuracy of the information that it provides.
