I Guess Jim Craig Has Broadband Access

I'm not sure what to say about this (aside from the host of dirty jokes that came to mind). I saw this on Andrew Sullivan's blog at the Atlantic. Here are the top ten pages viewed on "Conservapedia", a right wing.....something (dictionary? encyclopedia? echo chamber? brainwashing vehicle?). Anyway, here are Conservapedia's own '10 most popular articles', as listed on their main page:

1. Examples of bias in Wikipedia
2. Theory of evolution
3. Homosexuality
4. George W. Bush
5. Jesus Christ
6. Global warming
7. Barack Obama
8. Bible
9. Atheism
10. Conservative

Even more intriguing are the statistics on the top ten viewed pages in Conservapedia (according to their own stats here):
1. Main page
2. Homosexuality
3. Homosexuality and Hepatitis
4. Homosexuality and promiscuity
5. Homosexuality and parasites
6. Homosexuality and Gonorrhea
7. Homosexuality and domestic violence
8. Gay Bowel Syndrome
9. Homosexuality and Syphillis
10. Homosexuality and mental health

There is something just incredibly Freudian going on here, isn't there? How did the right wing end up so obsessed with gay lifestyle? What happened to Barry Goldwater, small government, and fiscal responsibility?

And honestly, "Gay Bowel Syndrome"? Just in case you don't believe in this medical condition, you can just read - according to Conservapedia - the book "The Marketing of Evil" about how.....forget it. It's another book about how gay people will either kill you or suck your soul forcibly out of your eyeballs.

Don't people have better things to do with their time?
