Several Christians have expressed their fauxrage over Google’s decision to display a doodle of Cesar Chavez on March 31st instead of some Easter themed doodle.
This is what Google had up:
Before It’s News ran this headline, “Lefty Google Doodle Disses Easter, People of Faith.” And, in the article they quote Council Nedd, the Presiding Bishop of some Episcopalian denomination I’ve never heard of.
In light of what appears to be an all-out attack on people of faith, I would like the executives at Google to explain why — on Easter Sunday, the day of Christ’s resurrection — they decided to instead honor socialist icon Caesar Chavez.
Is Google so confident in the strength of their web browser that they are willing to offend people of faith? I now will much prefer to receive the points from Bing Rewards in the future rather than dealing with a company that clearly seems to have gone out of its way to be offensive to Christians on the most important day on the Christian calendar.
While I do not believe there is a monolithic atheist movement to attack the Christian faith, I do believe that Google hopped on the bandwagon of the atheists bullies and joining in on the assault on followers of Jesus Christ.
Never mind that Chavez was a Roman Catholic… Seems to me Before It’s News likes to create their own “news” and quote people who have no idea what they are talking about. Just admit that you’re pissed about Cesar Chavez getting a doodle and leave it at that! It would probably be more honest that creating some faux war and I might actually have some measure of respect for you…as it stands though, I have absolutely no respect for you and your faux news. Just sayin’!
Oh, and speaking of Bing that Bishop Nedd mentioned, you would have thought they had an image of the empty tomb up… Well, here’s what they had:
Eggs. No cross, no empty tomb, no Christian symbolism at all…just eggs. In case I didn’t mention it before, I call bullshit on Bishop Nedd’s quote!
Then, to top it off, I stumbled across this tweet, courtesy of Twitchy (because Twitchy likes stirring the pot):
Umm…exactly what the hell do the eggs have to do with the Risen Christ? Not one damn thing! Let’s face it, Christians have just as big of a gripe with Bing as they claim to have with Google.
