Fundie spotting

Disinfopedia is:

a collaborative project to produce a directory of public relations firms, think tanks, industry-funded organizations and industry-friendly experts that work to influence public opinion and public policy on behalf of corporations, governments and special interests.

Its remit includes religious organisations, often ones pretending to be something else. See the entry on the American Family Association for an example of its contents. (Thanks to Ian Gregory.)
