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 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 of life itself. Posing as one of the last standing righteous underdogs in the never-ending fight against (mainly liberal and atheist) lies everywhere, the site promotes itself as "The Trustworthy Encyclopedia" (implying that Wikipedia is run by shills). Conservapedia has caused great controversy, both in print and online, primarily over the fatal accuracy of the information that the website provides, with backlash coming from all sides of the political spectrum.
