A Tree-hugging Acorn

Andrew Schlafly, son of Phyllis Schlafly, (you know: anti-feminism, anti-ERA, anti-arms limitation,anti-teaching geography in public schools)has entered modifications to the impositions that he believes liberalism has imposed on reference literature and theology. He has published Conservapedia as a corrective to Wikipedia and is working on a new bible that cleans up the liberal tendencies of the existing Bibles.
The Doser learned about these absurdities from Leonard Pitts Jr's column.

To get an impression of the corrections Schlafly makes is in the long ending of Mark's Gospel, which includes the story of the woman caught in adultery. This incident is not found in most of the oldest Greek manuscripts used to translate the Bible. Schlafly says that the adultery story, in which Jesus says, "He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her," should be cut because it portrays Jesus as being soft on sin.
"It's a liberal addition, put in by people who wanted to undermine the reality of hell and judgment," he said.
