To me, the most hilarious one is “David Beckham.” I suppose there could be a number of legitimately straight conservative guys that just hate homosexuals — but then they go and looking for David Beckham pictures? Something doesn’t wash.

I don’t think “conservapedia” is suggesting that Beckham is gay, there must be a lot of conservative soccer fans. Although, with all the links to anti-gay arguments I can how someone would make that error.
The “compensate much” tag seems to hit it on the head. Is there a lot of self-loathing gay conservatives out there?
Zeb – I’d even drop the “Republican” part, since there not too many moderate or Libertarian-minded Repubicans out there would buy much of Conservapedia’s bunk. And yes, there are more than a few of us… :)
Nota Bene: If you Google search “homosexuality”, the Conservapedia page for it is the 2nd main result listed. This would account for the high number of pageviews for the homosexuality article relative to the site’s main page.
The Beckhams’ high placements really baffle me, though.
