Conservapedia, PT III -- Richard Nixon

Why Tricky Dicks, Batman, this must be the work of the Joker.

Richard Milhous Nixon … was the 37th President of the Christian United States… He was the 36th Christian Vice President of the United States from 1953 to 1961, in the administration of Christian Dwight D. Eisenhower.” When did the name of the country change, and which one of my atheist compatriots kept the name change from me? (No wonder I’ve felt so dirty all these years).

Ah, but it gets better. Conservapedia notes that Nixon, “…lost his first presidential race to John F. Kennedy…” No "Christian" appellation here. Oh, I forgot, Kennedy was a Catholic.

Then there is the factual clunker, which notes that Nixon “…was reelected in 1972 by a landslide, but had to resign the following year…” Uh, no, he resigned in 1974, August 9th, in fact. Unless 1973 was cancelled, “the following year” would be incorrect.

And the best (and most confusing): Nixon’s “Christian foreign policy as president was marked by détente with the atheistic Soviet Union…” Now, if you as a good Christian, sup with the atheist devil, doesn’t that consign your soul to the Infernal regions, stoking the sulfurous fires of Hell?
