Religion Wiki


My name is Simon Peter Hughes, please call me Simon. I am one of the administrators on Religion Wiki, the moderator of Religion Wiki's Judaism portal and one of the administrators at The Judaism Wiki. I'm also an admin on six other Fandom wikis. I believe in freedom of religion, religious tolerance and respect for others' faith traditions. I am strongly opposed to religious hatred and bigotry.

I'd like to make it clear that just because I've edited a page marked "opinion" doesn't mean I agree with the opinions on the page. There are probably still some articles on this wiki that I'd find objectionable. I hope I have deleted the worst of them. This wiki used to have a lot of material copied from the Islamophobic hate site WikiIslam, until I deleted it all. For over a decade, there were over a thousand articles copied from Conservapedia here. Conservapedia is a hate site that encourages and perpetuates prejudice, especially homophobia and sexism. In June 2020, I finally did what I should have done a long time ago and deleted all the articles copied from Conservapedia I could find. I may have missed a few. Let me know if you find any pages copied from Conservapedia and I will delete them.

I'm from England. I was born in Stratford-upon-Avon, the hometown of William Shakespeare, in 1973. I received a BA in French and Spanish from the University of Bradford in 1995 and an MA from the University of Warwick's Centre for English Language Teacher Education two years later. 

I have been teaching English as a Foreign Language since 1997. I have lived and worked in Turkey, Poland, Japan and Taiwan. Since 2003 I have been teaching English to children in a small school in a village in northern Taiwan.

Here I am on my sister's wedding day in 2008.
