Joseph Farah Is A Noted Homosexual

Actually, he isn't. But Farah, the founder of World Net Daily, a Christianist version of the World Weekly News, is very unhappy that somebody keeps editing his Wikipedia profile to say that he's a dirty pole-smoker.
"Joseph Francis Farah is an Evangelical Christian American journalist and noted homosexual of Lebanese and Syrian heritage." – the first line of my current bio in Wikipedia. The Internet has brought the world some wonderful sources of information. And it has brought us some perfectly dreadful sources of misinformation. Wikipedia falls into the latter category. And this column is my latest effort to demonstrate just how abusive this so-called "online collaborative encyclopedia" really is. It is not only a provider of inaccuracy and bias. It is wholesale purveyor of lies and slander unlike any other the world has ever known.
Farah threatened a libel suit to get Wikipedia to remove the untrue bits, which he notes reappeared within hours. Now he is asking the Christian world to help him "kill the beast" that is Wikipedia, which he calls a "little more than an electronic graffiti board under the control of high-tech Crips and Bloods." He does not say how he plans to "defang" the site.
