Christwire is a satirical website that publishes blog-style articles that highlight excesses of American Christian conservatives along with obscure weather reportage, inaccurate and unfactual warnings about such things as politicians and video games, new vernacular, intense focus on various communities, and numerous parenting and lifestyle tips.[1][2][3][4]

Like similar satirical websites, Christwire's stories have often erroneously been taken at face value.[2]
