Google celebrates Easter with … Cesar Chavez birthday tribute

Yep. While two billion Christians around the world celebrate Easter Sunday on this 31st day of March, Google is using its famous “Doodle” search logo art to mark the birth of left-wing labor leader Cesar Chavez.

For real:

Screen shot 2013-03-31 at 12.13.25 AM

Christians from all walks of life and political views expressed shock, dismay, and exasperation with Google’s diss:

Amen:

Heh:

Bing, anyone?

Or maybe not:

Good question:

Google’s Doodle logo overlords sure have a way of rubbing their politics in people’s noses:

    My college(a state school) in California gets Cesar Chavez day off every year, but not any of the presidents holidays in February. And I know at least 1 UC does also.

    • RightThinking1

      It is logical that they would admire and honor a totalitarian. The peasants felt the same way about Stalin…, until the starvation set in.

      • mldi

        Once again, wrong Chavez.

  • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

    Well it looks like I am going to celebrate this Easter by not using Google

  • trixiewoobeans

    Well, unless he rose from the dead on the third day, (spoiler alert, he didn’t), I don’t get the connection, but then, I don’t get anything the Pliberals do, seeing reason, accountability and logic is not in their skill set.

    • Michael of the Green

      It’s his birthday. Happens to fall on easter this year. It’s a coincidence. No other connection.

      • wagthedog44

        you really believe that? I believe the guy who deserves a little more recognition rose from the dead on this day. Thank you for remembering him.

        It’s also just a coincidence the Obama spoke at Notre Dame and had the crucifix and the name of Jesus covered up with a white cloth because he found it “offensive.” Imagine if George W. Bush or any other republican would have spoken in a mosque and had the Quran covered up with a white cloth.
        Ignorance is bliss.

        Oh, they know what they are doing and they think that anyone who is upset with it is a Bible clinging, gun toting bigot because, well, they read it or something.

          well, I’m a bible believer, gun owner, happy Christian. Goodbye Google. They annoyed me anyway with their re-formation of our cyber universe. I won’t miss Google

      • Daniel Kim

        Passion for Christ is rated R. I haven’t watched that yet. Is it good? Did you cry?

        • Send_us_Doves

          It’s fantastic. Very disturbing. Totally cried.

      • WhyteRaven74

        So you watched Jesus torture porn. How charming. I suspect like most of the fans of the movie you have zero interest in actually living how Jesus taught people to live.

    • weirdmoment

      So you need Google’s approval before you celebrate Easter? Hmmm very interesting standards.

      • BraBradabrat

        It was a topical point regarding google…. You know the article is about google. Derp. (I could do the twentysomething collegesque sarcasms very well too you know. I however find those who do that during debates with grown adults to be lacking in substance. May I recommend you some coffee? Just trying to help because you are looking amateurish, no offense.)

      • http://www.facebook.com/lance.christian.3139 Lance Christian

        And you need the word “God” taken off of currency in order for you to not believe in Him? Your standards are quite interesting as well.

        • WhyteRaven74

          God wasn’t mentioned anywhere on US currency until the 20th century.

      • lainer51

        it’s not about approval, it’s about respect..
        BTW – you can look up “respect” on Bing.

        • WhyteRaven74

          how about some respect for a man that devoted his life to helping those in need?

        • Riddles

          Where is your respect for Cesar and his work for minority civil rights? Do you think it is more important that Google pander to the religious by putting up the rabbit and egg symbols of Easter that have nothing to do with the Christian reinterpretation of Easter?

      If you are such an advocate of logic,you would also know that one of the rules of science is that if you cannot disprove something a hundred percent,then a percentage,no matter how small must be given that it could be true. Of course atheism is not about the love of science,reason or logic. Rather it is an agenda to eradicate a group of people.Why? Because all atheists are the same;they are cowards. In the prime of their life they are as cocky and arrogant as can be (just like you) because the can justify any type of vice they wish while sweeping the possible consequences under the rug. But here’s the thing;ALL OF US WILL DIE. Will you be so quick to embrace absolute nothingness?Unending darkness?Eternal void? Atheists always do one of two things;they either get really humble or they go berserk. And yes that also goes for your savior Darwin.

      Evolution cannot be proven to be 100% true (it’s called the THEORY of evolution) anymore than Intelligent Design can. But again,atheisim is not about logic or reason.It’s about hatred.

      By the way you’ll have to let me in on your secret of time travel.I’d love to know how you went back over 2000 years ago and saw with your own eyes that the resurrection of Jesus is a lie. Oh,wait that’s right,if it’s written in a ultra-leftist book it is the absolute truth. But the Bible is an opressor and demands how you think…

      • Dave Ross

        Uhh, ok…just because you think atheists are all hatred…stop and answer me this…why are there so many aspects of Jesus life and the bible that were common themes in religions for centuries, that’s right centuries before the birth of Christ. Once you do the research and realize that the bible and Jesus’s actions are all borrowed from written documented stories of Pagan and Egyption gods right down to the virgin birth, resurrection, etc..your common sense kicks in, and you become a free thinker and make a rational choice between fiction and reality…that is not hatred it is those who choose to laugh at what is becoming more and more widely known as a hoax… 16 % of Americans do not believe in Christianity, that is a larger percentage then those who do. Just because one does not choose to believe in Christianity does not make them a bad person, my concern is more the fact you feel you need the preachings and guidance of a book that is fiction in order for you to have morals and make good decisions not affected by hate, greed and power.. but wait that’s all history has been wrought with and why? Because the real history is the negative affect that religion brought upon all cultures and continues to do today…I ask you do you love your country? Then go back and read what our founding fathers said and felt about religion and Christians in particular..this country was not founded on Christianity, But the sheep of this country think it was and it just shows their inability to lead and think on their own..this my friend is real truth…

        • JR

          Trying to sound so intelligent you come off as completely ignorant. 16% is not a majority. Also, there’s this thing called history and it has a way of telling us of things that happened in the past. Whether or not you believe in the story of Christ, there’s more history and scientific facts that 1) He was a real, 2) The cruxifiction happened, and 3) No one can locate his body today. You can use the old “Christianity is a copied religion” but there are many loopholes to that argument. But hey- believe whatever masks your conscience. Believe it or not, I was once Agnostic, but too much history studies blew my thinking to smithereens.

          • Dave Ross

            You hit the nail on the head my friend, it is a story..not fact, that was my point..and the 16 percent I am documenting , well maybe i should have led you to see that it is a larger group than say blacks, gays, Jews, etc…maybe this is why Obama got elected, because he is not a Christian? Look the Christian church is under fire and losing attendance in this country because so many people are not buying it anymore. So the next time a priest, (catholic faith), or one of your beloved high paid preachers, ministers, leaders of the Christian faith GET CAUGHT BEING ANYTHING BUT A GOOD CHRISTIAN…tell me how this is a good thing? Oh wait I get it we are all sinners and are only men…but yet we place our faith in these leaders of our church, they hold our beliefs in their hands we follow them and the word of God only to see them time and time again not practice what they preach. I for one can do with out it…if Being a Christian makes you a better person than I say great all I am saying is I don’t need it to make good moral decisions about my life…apparently many people do.

          • http://twitter.com/TJLEJEUNE TJL

            There’s not a single shred of evidence the Jesus existed, was crucified, and rose three days later outside of the bible. And the bible says that an elderly man built a boat large enough for two of every animal in the world and that people used to live for hundreds of years.

        • Daniel Kim

          Exactly. Freedom of speech and religion.

          I would have paid no attention to what google had up on Easter Sunday per se. I would be offended by Chavez at ANY time. The guy was a ruthless totalitarian leftist. Anyone who believes that his program for ‘helping the poor’ was anything but a sham for seizing and holding absolute political power would also have believed that about Stalin.

          • HDV1

            You are thinking about Hugo Chavez. They were 2 completely different people.

          • RightThinking1

            Geeze. Wrong guy. Hmmm, still kind of applies though…

          • mldi

            No it doesn’t.

          • RightThinking1

            Wrong guy…, I’ll re-post when google honors him…, can’t be long.

        • TocksNedlog

          That’s cool how you disagreed with him by … agreeing with him(?)

        • Riddles

          If nobody can locate his body, how is that even proof that he was ever real? Anyone can make up a person, get a bunch of people to say they saw them and then say they magically went up into the sky and thus left no body as evidence.

      • TocksNedlog

        Um, with all due respect, you didn’t understand the post to which you were responding at all.

      • WhyteRaven74

        Evolution is observed all the time. Also go look up the scientific definition of theory

      • Riddles

        Evolution can actually be proven to be true more than Intelligent Design can, the former has scientific evidence.

        But then you wouldn’t know that, all Christians are the same, scientifically illiterate morons. Oh wait, sorry, that’s a false generalization, you can only make false generalizations about people you specifically don’t agree with.

    • Elizabeth Durbin

      Jews days start at 6pm. Consider that, and the first day was when he died, The second day started on Friday at 6pm, until 6pm Saturday, then the third day would have been Sunday, ok, get it!

        OMG! S/he was making a sarcastic comment about Chavez, NOT Christ!

    • TocksNedlog

      Chavez rose from the dead on the First day, as a martyr of the revolución.

      #VivaLaCommie!

  • nc

    Per Wikipedia: Although it is not a federal holiday, President Barack Obama proclaims March 31 as César Chávez Day in the United States, with Americans being urged to “observe this day with appropriate service, community, and educational programs to honor César Chávez’s enduring legacy.” In addition, there are celebrations in his honor in Arizona, Michigan, Nebraska, and New Mexico and has been observed in California since 1995, in Texas since 2000 and in Colorado since 2003 as state holidays (optional in Texas and Colorado).

    Priorities!

    • http://www.facebook.com/lance.christian.3139 Lance Christian

      It is not a federal holiday YET. If someone told you ten years ago that we would have a president who would create a holiday for a historical figure on the same day as Easter;no one would have believed it. Ten years from now(if it takes that long) we will be like Cuba.

      • Geoff Martin

        wow, you don;t even know that it doesn’t always fall on this day do you? {embarrassing} in the 20 year span of 2001 to 2021…. 2002 was the only only day it fell on Mar 31st. Not too bright are ya?

        • BrainChildOfGod

          NOT the point. Point is, when the 2 DID occur on the same day Google chose to honor Chavez over Jesus Christ. Even atheists can’t deny that Jesus changed the world more than any other person in history, fer pity’s sake. “Embarrassing” is the kindest word I can think of for this epic fail of a snub.

          • Geoff Martin

            1. “when the 2 DID occur ” Google did NOT do a Chavez Doodle in 2002. So you also are lacking in info. {Hilarious} 2. Google is a company, they owe you and your religion NOTHING. if you don’t like it don’t use them and shut up. The Christian whining is sickening. BOO HOO, other people choose not to pay tribute to my beliefs. They refuse to be just like me.

        That Easter falls on March 31, 2013 is just a coincidence. Easter is a moveable feast the date is set yearly and is determined by the first full moon after the spring equinox. Obama set the Chavez date in 2011. Easter that year was April 24.

      How sarcastic will you be when your rights are ignored? Do you really believe that the threat of a muslim dictatorship will not happen? Americans will no longer be able to give the “first amendment reflex” once the government BECOMES god. The Catholic Church survived nazisim and communisim.You take out the Catholics,the rest of the Christian churchs fall in a domino effect. The next belief system to take over will not be Judaism,Hinduisim,atheisim,free-spirit,new age or Wicca.It will be the muslim belief and you will either respectfully share in it’s belief and observe all of it’s customs,or you will be an infidel and put to death. For all of the “war on women” ranting that liberals used in the last election,it will fall on deaf ears in a muslim world.Women will be property. Would you also find it enjoyable once the government tells you what degree you can keep your air conditoner or heater on,what foods you can and cannot eat or how many miles you can drive each day?

      This is how all dictatorships start;desensitization AKA political correctness,media bias and killing off the realities of good and evil AKA realitivism.

      Karl Marx said that socialisim would never occur over night in America.It would take three generations or around one hundred years.Generation 1=baby boomers,generation2=gen X,generation 3=gen y. Tell me under what country has a society thrived under socialisim? Do you want to live under a man who has the same power as Castro?

      • Dave Ross

        And your argument for any religion is? I think you prove my point that religion is why we have what we have in this world..selling an invisible object that time and time again those you put your faith in, let you down and are exposed for what they truly are..religion makes trouble no matter what or whom you believe and why are their so many denominations? Because man, not a god, but man decides to interpret the word of god in his own way…how can you be so fervently absolute in this belief when there is constant separation among Christians…

        • TocksNedlog

        I agree with your statement, I do have to say, we have been Socialistic for a long time. We are now in the early stage of Communism.
        Communism is a revolutionary socialist movement to create a classless, moneyless
        and stateless social order structured upon common ownership of the
        means of production, as well as a social, political and economic
        ideology that aims at the establishment of this social order. Law are harsher, groups of people are targeted (i.e. Vietnam Vets, all living combat vets, motorcycle 1%’ers, etc) as examples there are other targeted groups

          Those aren’t stupid things to get angry about. Those vacations come off the Taxpayers dime, just after he cut white house tours because they can’t afford it and he didn’t want to trim the secret service budget. As for Jim Carrey, he not only disrespected a decent, dead man, but he called us law-abiding gun owners “heartless motherf**ckers.” As for the Google thing, why aren’t Christians allowed to be mad at someone for disrespecting their religion like every other religion?

I am angry because the words “shall not be infringed” as set forth in the Second Amendment means nothing to a guy whose only claim to employment is teaching CONSTITUTIONAL LAW. I am angry because he is treated like a monarch by the media and the fact that he was BOOED at an NC2A game yesterday after playing golf on the taxpayers’s dollar will never be reported by the media. I am angry because he has yet to do anything about approving the XL pipeline to improve the availability of gas but is contemplating adding a $1.40 PER GALLON to what we are already paying so that we are more like EUROPE. If he and EVA like Europe so damn much, maybe they should go RULE there. This is still the United STATES of America.

          • Diane Rumrill-Hall

            the “things” Jesus stood for got him some bad press in His day. I’ll bet those old bastards in charge called him some names too. Probably would have been considered a communist too. But Cesar Chavez was born on March 31, 1927. That Easter Sunday falls today is a coincidence. When Chavez day was first started in 2011 Easter fell on April 24. Just to remind all you strangely confused ( are you religious or are you political?) Christians, Easter is a moveable feast based on when the full moon follows the Spring equinox so no one has tried to usurp the importance of Easter. And I guess my biggest question is why are you in favor of seeing bunnies and colored eggs over the face of, to many people, a hero. Bunnies and eggs are pagan representations of fertility not Jesus.

          I have found a great deal of peace on meditating on the wisdom of God.And to do that,I have seperated myself a great deal from this world i.e the entertainment industry,media and esp. Obummer. There is a passage that says “You cannot love this world and the next;for you will find joy in neither.”

        • Vincent Atd[perspherspley]

          “There is no conflict between the ideal of religion and the ideal of science, but science is opposed to theological dogmas because science is founded on fact. To me, the universe is simply a great machine which never came into being and never will end. The human being is no exception to the natural order. Man, like the universe, is a machine. Nothing enters our minds or determines our actions which is not directly or indirectly a response to stimuli beating upon our sense organs from without. Owing to the similarity of our construction and the sameness of our environment, we respond in like manner to similar stimuli, and from the concordance of our reactions, understanding is born. In the course of ages, mechanisms of infinite complexity are developed, but what we call “soul ” or “spirit,” is nothing more than the sum of the functionings of the body. When this functioning ceases, the “soul” or the “spirit” ceases likewise.” – by Nikola Tesla as told to George Sylvester Viereck, “A Machine to End War”., Liberty, PBS.org, February 1937.

            actually science isn’t founded on fact. It is theories that some scientist believe to be fact due to observable data. These scientific theories change all the time.

          Only a simpleton would use a quote before Tesla even started his studies to bolster your argument and not one from after his studies, instead. How Christian is this quote, one of his last?

          “Religion is simply an ideal” [Tesla remarked]. “It is an ideal force that tends to free the human being from material bonds. I do not believe that matter and energy are interchangeable, any more than are the body and soul. There is just so much matter in the universe and it cannot be destroyed. As I see life on this planet, there is no individuality. It may sound ridiculous to say so, but I believe each person is but a wave passing through space, ever-changing from minute to minute as it travels along, finally, some day, just becoming dissolved.””

          And to those of you pointing out that Cesar Chavez was Catholic and suggesting that he would be appalled at Google’s actions: Chavez spent more of his lifetime fighting for downtrodden Latino Americans than any of us posting here, religious or not, will likely ever do for any of our fellow men. I’m fairly confident that he would tell all of us to get off the computer and go do something for good rather than argue about the subject of today’s GOOGLE DOODLE.

            In order to call the resurrection of Christ a “defining event of western civilization” you would first have to prove it happened. Nobody but Christians believe it happened, so about 1/3 of the world’s population, and there is not one shred of scientific evidence to back it up. What if, instead, we feel the “defining event of western civilization” was when the Flying Spaghetti Monster used his noodly appendages to scoop up all the dinosaurs and clear the way for mankind to come to the top of the food chain?

            There are people who will spend today alone, some hungry, some without a place to sleep and here you are whining about a picture on the internet. You are demanding your wants are put ahead of their needs. No one need accuse you of not following the teachings of Jesus, you’re showing everyone by declaring a picture is more important than those in need. You care about your own trivial feelings and not those in need, those who are alone, hungry, homeless. You’ll lie and say it’s not true, a coward to afraid to actually say what they feel and that they expect to be put ahead of everyone else, including those in need.

            Showing disbelief that Google would celebrate a labor leader over someone with a real connection for hundreds of millions of people the world over (and actually better meeting the bar for their “doodle-worthiness” scale) is showing that a doodle means more than a person in need?
            You chatted with friends today. I gave to a special 100% offering at my church to provide meals for homeless kids & families in our community… driven by the example of someone apparently not as Google-worthy as Chavez.

He is written of in many texts of many cultures. Denying his existence won’t make him fictional. Don’t believe in his legacy, fine, be pissed, but be pissed correctly.

And all cultures have old stories, does it make Zeus, or the Chupacabra real?

            HOW is it offensive? Because not everyone celebrates Easter and doesn’t care? If we don’t celelbrate Easter why should we do nothing all day just because you do? It would really only be offensive if they posted a doodle that said “Fuck Jesus.” Get over yourself.

You are saying that those people don’t matter at all, that all that matters is a picture on the internet that for some reason has you upset. Does it feel good to tell the world that a picture matters more to you than those in need? That your whims being catered to is more important than taking care of those in need? Because it sure seems like all that matters to you, is you.

            Easter is on a different day each year, Obama made March 31 Chavez day because he was born on the 31 March 1927 and he did that in 2011. This is a coincidence and it amazes me that you boisterous Christians are more political than knowledgeable about your own religion. How are pictures of colored eggs and bunnies more acceptable than a hero who looked out for his people? Eggs and bunnies are known pagan symbols.

Do you think Jews should be offended when JC Penny paints a Christmas tree in their window but not a Menorah?

            It’s absolutely absurd how entitled some Christians feel to having their every little whim acknowledged and catered to, and how offended they get when they have to be confronted with the knowledge that not everyone believes in or cares about the same things they do. Frankly I think the behavior is disgusting and detestable and you should be ashamed.

            You say that, but you probably enjoy the Christmas break, or Thanksgiving break. So it’s fine when Christians offer you a holiday where you get couple days off, even presents, but not fine when they offer holiday without any rewards along with it? Easter’s the most important holiday in Christianity. I don’t care if you don’t celebrate easter, but why do you bother celebrating christmas as well then?

            So Google changing their page to celebrate the pagan part of the day, eggs, rabbits, etc would have been appropriate then? That is what many Christians I see claim. That would seem to be more of a slap in the face than Cesar Chavez, yet churchs around the US still celebrate the pagan aspect for some unfathomable reason.

So I could live the life of a great man who does many good things in the world, not in the name of God, but in the name of not being a giant dick, and when I die and if there is a heaven and a God, he would send me to hell based not on my actions throughout a life lived helping people, but based on whether or not I accepted him?

            Pascal’s wager is equally valid for any of the other religions besides Christianity. No matter what religion you choose you are taking a risk; you might believe in Jesus all your life and find out Hinduism was correct all along, for instance. Any exclusive choice necessarily alienates all the other religious choices that insist on excluding others. All religious choices boil down to the equivalent of throwing a dart into a board and hoping you hit the bulls-eye.

What is supposed to be the most important is the day of his death. It is what paid for mankind’s sins. Well, if your Christian, which I am not!

            Nice shiny mirror you’re holding up, there.
            Fun fact: of the 32 states that receive more in welfare than they contribute in taxes, 27 are conservative. The only Bible Belt states that give more in taxes than they receive in gov’t. aid are Texas & Florida.
            So there’s the “lazy,” “entitled” ones “draining the economy.”
            You also equate being not fundamentalist, far-right Christian with being atheist, which simply isn’t the case.

            Oh, and lastly? At least 3 of the founders of the US considered themselves non-Christian. I guess you’d call them “rude, lazy, etc.”

            Hmm, show me their unemployment rates, debt, and number of people on welfare(a stat that actually matters) then we can talk about how much red states drain the economy. In fact the only states in the union right now that are booming economically are red states while liberal places like California and Detroit are crumbling and that is a fact jack.

            And as for those Founding Fathers who were not traditional Christians, they still believed that in order to have liberty a society had to have morality and the best way to achieve that was Christianity. If you don’t believe me go ahead and look up Ben Franklin’s thoughts on it.

          • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

            This is the thing that trips you liberals up, “growing” does not mean “good.” If your economy is at rock bottom and it gets a few new jobs that means it is technically “growing” because there is no place to go but up and that definitely doesn’t mean they have a strong economy. The very fact that California who is in economic disaster by it’s own government’s admission is near the top of that list makes it laughable that you are using that list as a serious argument. Red States have had great sustainable economies for a long time even though they are not technically growing as much. This is the same case with Obama’s job “growth” and FYI if you are losing more jobs than you are gaining it is not actual growth. Also, the word “God” isn’t in the Constitution but “Creator” is. Nice try, thanks for playing.

            Actually, there is proof for Buddha’s existence, but none for Jesus’s, so technically you can’t look at Jesus through a historical perspective.

Nobody’s going to suddenly renounce Christianity because Google says a history class buzzword is more relevant than a Christian holiday. It’s just amusing how far a major provider of information will go to avoid even acknowledging things that challenge its worldview. I thought that was a main complaint against religion.

            Just ask Ishtar/Astara about Easter. I’m sure Jesus would be happy if people didn’t celebrate the fertility rites of pagan deities. Jesus is my Lord and Savior, and ‘the traditions of men have made the Word of God of none effect’.

            Easter is an American Tradition? Last time I checked the entire world of Christians celebrated the resurrection of Jesus Christ. That hardly qualifies as an “American tradition”.

          • ciroc2323

            If Google intends to highlight historic events, the facts around Jesus Christ walking around after being killed by crucifixion and the resulting 2.3 billion Christians that on on the planet today, seems to trump the birthday of a labor activist.

          • http://www.facebook.com/miles.ellsworth.96 Miles Ellsworth

            Jesus’s resurrection does not qualify as a historical fact.

            How is Google marking the birth of Cesar Chavez making that fact irrelevant?

            So did you celebrate? Than why do you need Google to celebrate as well? You and your 2.3 billion brothers and sisters did a good enough job. You don’t need validation from Google.

          • ciroc2323

            No worries, Fran. My world does not revolve around what a bunch of Obama sycophants at Google decide to do. I think all of this serves to remind us how great our country is that we can all practice free speech!

            Suppose you realize Google did it to make a statement against Christianity and Christians. Craig, get over yourself. This is the fundamental problem I have with atheists, they don’t know Cesar about Chavez.

          • Craig Jacobs

            If that’s the case then they’ve been making this statement for the last 13 years. Where was the outrage then?

          • emaleroland

            Perhaps if you pulled your head out of your Google, you’d see the outrage has been there all along, but I doubt you’d ever admit it.

            Very amusing. Atheism is a very strict religion. It is a religion of denial and does not allow its members to believe in anything – or else. You can’t be a true atheist if you have beliefs other than denial of beliefs. Therefore, atheism is ridiculous on its face and just as dogmatic as the religions it is offended by.

          • emaleroland

I’m still on the fence regarding the man, but I am not on the fence about this diss by Google.

            Pliny was born 50 years after Jesus was supposed to have died, thats a man writing about Christianity, not a first hand account of Jesus.

            There is a difference between insensitive and less sensitive. Given the demographics of the US, it is commercially beneficial to be sensitive to local religious traditions. Google is good at many things, but they can be “geeky”, and we geeks are not as sensitive to things like that.

          Yes, I am familiar with faith. Personally, I was a Christian for over twenty years until I took a step back and started seriously evaluating the reasons and evidence for my beliefs. That’s why I am no longer a Christian and am now an atheist.

          As far as faith is concerned, I like Dr. Peter Boghossian’s definition: “Pretending to know things you don’t know.” It took a lot of work, but I finally stopped pretending.

    • Live like nobody is watching

      Perhaps you should learn to ask questions instead of blindly follow fairy tales that Christians stole from Pagans.

      Ishtar”, which is pronounced “Easter” was a day that commemorated the resurrection of one of their gods that they called “Tammuz”, who was believed to be the only begotten son of the moon-goddess and the sun-god.

      The more you know…

          • Live like nobody is watching

            It is very common knowledge that Easter is rooted in Paganism.

            http://www.thevermilion.com/column/easter-rooted-in-paganism-1.2838833#.UVihENPD8iE

            “Ishtar”, pronounced Easter, was the Babylonian goddess of fertility. Why do you think Easter is still represented by eggs and rabbits? That’s right – they are both symbols of ffertility.

          • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

            It’s common knowledge IF the people who wrote it down were telling the truth. Unless you were there, you take their word on “faith.”

            You’ve never seen instances in modern America where historians make up “facts” to bolster their argument? You have incredible faith.

          • Live like nobody is watching

            I’m glad that you are able to look past the fact that the holidays and teachings you follow are direct ripoffs from religions that existed long before Christianity -Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Greek Monotheism. Those were probably ripoffs from religions that preceded them.

            That is a fact.

            First you must understand that the spread of Christianity
            has had nothing to do with any valid spirituality. It is an
            empire of power and wealth, which has committed mass
            murder again and again, to get where it is. But I’m guessing you would rather be a blind sheep in a flock than to actually think critically.

            Good day.

            So you were alive and personally witnessed pagan celebrations and later saw them incorporated into practice by Christians. That’s cool. You write really well for an extremely old guy.

            Otherwise I’d guess that you were taking the word of people from long ago that wrote things down that you had no first hand account, and believed it anyway.

            Good luck with your immortality.

          • Rhiannon Schaefer

            No, actually… it IS common knowledge if you pay attention. Let’s look at Yule for example. A pagan holiday, normally celebrated around December 21st, and much, much older than Christmas. It’s a feast-y type holiday where we celebrate the rebirth of the Sun, that the days are growing longer again.

            Christmas, the celebration of the birth of Jesus (originally celebrated in spring, if I remember correctly).

            The birth of the sun, and the birth of the Son…. HMMMMM…..

          • Live like nobody is watching

            So let me get this straight…

            Babylonian texts are not legitimate, but a book written by men hundreds of years after the events in it occurred, then translated multiple times from one language to another, then rewritten by high ranking church and government officials to back their agendas.

            That book is your Bible. I’m glad you know its authors, and translators, and re-writers personally to vouch for its validity.

            Again, pot meet kettle.

I mean, it would be pretty difficult for me to type this if I were an empty dead carcus. And the only voices in my head speak Russian and I have no clue what they’re talking about. Its funny that you feel sorry for me when I feel sorry for you. Its pretty pathetic that you’re so afraid of death that you’re willing to believe any bullshit story.

      Self-Admitted hipsters & secularists…

      Which is why, every time they or someone else points Goog’s mission statement (which is “to not be evil” ) I start laughing until the tears come.

      It’s just to “fool the rubes”, as it were.

      And looking at their actions it can be seen that it is true. To pick two of many incidents for example: (1) How they “hopped-to” turning over the names, IP addresses, and searches of prospective dissidents in Red China, with nothing more than literally a token protest — after promising those in Red China they would not… then within the same month, refusing to give — well, actually, doing the legal equivalent of fighting tooth & nail to withhold any data or data extraction to help locate or prosecute child pornographers or traffickers in child sex slavery!

      (2) When their little vans were zooming around gathering video for street level eye-view maps and “war driving” to suck all the unencrypted data out of any WiFi network they managed to access during those forays.

      About item (2): For those — who like Google, claimed there was “no expectation of privacy” b/c (for whatever reason) the network wasn’t locked down and the data itself wasn’t encrypted — it would be an equivalent argument to say that, unless you lock your bicycle to an immovable object when stepping away from it, you expect any random someone to walk off with it as a gift.

      So, this doesn’t surprise me. I fully expect them to celebrate other greats of the international progressive movement, too. You know, those w/the highest bodycounts, such as: Mao, Pol Pot, Lenin, Stalin, Mugebe, Idi Amin, Paul Kagame, etc.

          • https://www.facebook.com/captainclarity CaptainClarity

            Actually you are incorrect. Google has placed Chavez’s significance above that of Jesus’ today. Of course I know it is Chavez’s birthday. Easter was not “moved” as you stated. In 325 the Council of Nicaea established that Easter would be held on the first Sunday after the first full moon occurring on or after the vernal equinox. Chavez was not born for another 1,602 years. I would have to say that Easter came first. The point being … some of us are just tired of political correctness trumping and disrespecting our faith. Diversity and tolerance should not trample on the feelings of anyone – including Christians – and Google knew exactly what they were doing.

          • weirdmoment

            All that lecture for a picture? On a webpage? Are you serious? Just take a second and think about it…actually two seconds..for a picture? You need to re-evaluate your Christian principles if you base them on a picture appearing on a webpage.

          • weirdmoment

            Your comment has nothing to do with Google’s decision to put Cesar as the doodle. You are voicing a general opinion that could cover a multiple number of issues. If you stay on topic you’d realise how idiotic your whining is.

          • https://www.facebook.com/captainclarity CaptainClarity

            let me help your little brain along… “lack of respect” is “Google’s decision to put Cesar as the doodle” and not respecting a worldwide holiday that was establish 1,688 years ago and celebrated by billions of people over 1 1/2 millennia. “Lack of tolerance towards Christianity” are those like you who argue in defense of the aforementioned “lack of respect.” Now tell me again how my “comment has nothing to do with Google’s decision to put Cesar as the doodle.” Never mind – I don’t want an answer from you. I only wrote this so that others can watch you step right in it. You’re not even fun to debate. You bore me. Goodbye.

          • weirdmoment

            That is the weakest argument I have ever seen.
            You want to Google to respect your personal beliefs but you can’t respect a company’s right to do whatever they choose? Talk about hypocrisy.
            And dont give me that BS about Easter. Genius, I’m Catholic. I know all about Easter. Your whining has little to do with Christianity. You just want to whine about something that won’t change your life.EVER. Not today. Not tomorrow. NEVER! So find something more constructive like helping the poor or feeding the hungry like Jesus would do.

          • https://www.facebook.com/captainclarity CaptainClarity

            My comments are completely written in regards to Google’s decision to put Cesar as the doodle, while disrespecting the billions of Christians who have learned from his teachings for over 2,000 years – including Cesar Chavez. If you think I am whining, then you must not realize that I am actually laughing at how easy it is to toy with your little brain by providing facts, which you have not refuted, because you can’t. Unfortunately, I am bored with you now. Goodbye.

          • weirdmoment

            Disrespecting? Are you sure people were disrespected? There are millions of people across the world who will go to sleep tonight with caring that Easter wasn’t recognised by google.

      Yet another corporation which has sold it’s soul for money and power.

      • VikkiDevine

        You are assuming that the corporation is a Christian corporation used solely by Christians. Last I checked, no business or person in the United States (where Google is headquartered) is forced to even acknowledge let alone celebrate any religious holiday.

        • SturJen

          Yeah, but if your customer base is majority Christian, would it not be a good idea business-wise to acknowledge something something very important to your customers? That’s the problem with a lot of businesses these days, they have no clue what GOOD business is: Sometimes you have to do something distasteful (like acknowledging a Christian holiday!) to keep your customer base.

          • Ben Kay

            “but if your customer base is majority Christian”
            There are two billion people in China and India alone who are not christian,and use google. Your argument is flawed

          • SturJen

            Why piss off a decent customer base anyways? And your argument is flawed as well: Just because someone lives in China or India does not make them Un-Christian. There are a number of Christians in each country. Stop stereotyping a large group of people based on a narrow definition of their culture.

          • Riddles

            Stop stereotyping all christians as crazy fundementalists that throw a fit that a company isn’t pandering to their religion like they haven’t done in over a decade.

        Google: “Hey, it’s Cesar Chavez’s birthday today! He was this rad American guy who helped fight for civil liberties for poor field workers. Here’s a cool Doodle and a link to learn more!”

        Religious Nuts: “THE MARK OF THE BEAST IS MARKED UPON YOUR BROW!!!”

        Hey nuts, did you stop for a second and think about when Cesar Chavez’s birthday might actually get celebrated? Is Google supposed to avoid everybody except your religion on these types of holidays? I feel bad for little Johnny whose birthday is March 31. Hopefully he isn’t being punished to this degree for daring to ask for a birthday cake for his birthday.

    • Riddles

      How is it insulting that they decided to honour a man who fought for liberty instead of pander to certain religious groups? They haven’t had an Easter doodle for over a decade, the only reason a lot of people seem to be taking offense now instead of in the past is because the doodle is for a non-American sounding person and a lot of those people are racist.

    • WhyteRaven74

      what’s insulting about honoring a man who devoted his life to helping those in need? I mean that’s what Jesus taught about how people are supposed to live their lives.

    • Mike InDetroit

      there is no ‘Google’ right to anything. Google is owned by institutional holders. It is their money, not those that have made this decision. If the stock price goes down because of a switch to Bing (resulting in lower advertising revenue) then those who have their 401K’s and pension invested with those holders will be affected. This is someone advancing their personal agenda on the pocketbooks of others.

      • WhyteRaven74

        I love how people claiming to be Christians are trying to put down Google for honoring a man who tried to help those in need, the very thing Jesus taught others to do. Pretty much screams “I don’t care what Jesus wanted me to do, I just want to say I believe and call it a day”.

      What the hell? This is about CESAR Chavez, not Hugo Chavez. Cesar Chavez was the founder of the United Farm Workers.

    • ToTripoli

      Uh… Cesar Chavez was never a dictator. You’re thinking of Hugo Chavez, who was less a true dictator & more just a loud-mouthed political leader.

      Cesar Chavez was a grape farmer who founded the UFW to ensure farm workers got paid a decent wage. If it weren’t for Cesar, thousands of farm workers would still be little more than indentured servants.

      But at least you’ve managed to show that you 1) can’t tell the difference between non-whites, 2) are too lazy to do 30 seconds of research before bearing false witness & making up conspiracy theories, and 3) enjoy vividly-detailed imagery of the death and/or suffering of others on a level that might best be described as “psychopathic.”

    Not agreeing that not honoring our Saviors rising from the grave to
    ensure we have eternal life but for one EASTER is a commercialized
    holiday that is celebrated just as Christmas is not Jesus’s actual
    birth….both of these holidays were started at those times as a counter
    to a druid celebration and to take tha focus off of that and divert it
    to something more favorable and “christian like”. And in response to Michelle Malkin’s comment calling Cesar Chavez a left wing labor leader as if it was horrible…. REALLY….well let me fill you in on this man you are calling a left wing labor leader….this man stood up for the rights of Northern Californias and chicanos and mexican laborers rights because of the disgustingly blatent and very inhumane working conditions that they were being expected to work under. I’m sure we’ll see many derogatory remarks after this about illegal immigrants taking our jobs but I’d bet everything I own you WON’T SEE AS MANY CAUCASIAN people who complain about them taking our jobs out doing nor working as hard as many of these “illegal immigrant”. Anywhoooo as a minority I was pretty disappointed that you started off your comment as if Cesar Chavez was Satan himself…..Easter bunnies, chocolate, & egg hunts have nothing to do with Jesus rising from tha dead either but as christians in todays societies we still celebrate and support these rituals yet I see no one mad and commenting on that. Just my personal opinion and what I think about all tha ranting and raving. Personally, I believe if your living your life according to Christ’s will and are where you should be spiritually all this other crap is a bunch of nonsense and a lot of wasted time and energy put into something that’s not gonna matter next week. Shouldn’t we get angry about tha unemployment rates or something important that’s going to affect tha future of our children…. If your a christian and are living according to the scripture then we should all be taking every opportunity to exhalt our Father and spread the word of Christs gift of everlasting life, right? Jus a thought or two…..

    • JoeS4

      I’m sorry, but you are wrong about the timing of Easter. It is true of Christmas, but not Easter. Easter follows the Jewish Passover.

      As for the rest of your comments, you display yourself as a hateful individual to whom politics and your animosity for “Caucasian” people (many Latinos are Caucasian) is what matters, not the faith you claim. This in fact has nothing to do with Cesar Chavez. It is about the fact that Google chose to focus on anything other than Easter on Easter Sunday.

      You are totally missing the point Ms. Fraga. I am Hispanic and the very reason my mom came to this country was to get away from this type of nonsense where people are made to do what ever the government demands. We are only speaking out, something in Latin America we can’t do and our excuse is to focus on what’s more important…. Latin America has always done that and look where it’s at, still focusing on what’s more important while their voices dim out, or should I say die away. I know no one on here is talking bad about Chavez but I really don’t think you see the bigger picture. I pray everyday that the US and its people don’t lose the voice we once lost.

    Honoring Cesar Chavez on Easter Sunday?? I guess I need to change search engines and will. Google won’t mind, clearly they don’t care!! What a way to start Easter Sunday…. BING, is that my new search engine??

  • $2943864

    I have changed all of my default search engines to Bing. It probably doesn’t mean anything to Google but it does to me – they could ignore Easter for all I care – but to passive aggressively insult their customers? Wow, just wow.

  • John Whalen

    Google is demonstrating beyond any doubt where it’s true allegiances lie. At a time when Christians only want to think “Easter” and all it encompasses, we get a poke in the eye with this blatant celebration of a foreign leftist who is famous for promoting illegal immigration. The more I learn about Google, the less I like it.

    • WhyteRaven74

      Chavez was born in Arizona and he was opposed to illegal immigration. And if you want to think about Easter, perhaps you should think about those who have no one to be with today, or nothing to eat, or nowhere to sleep. Or is thinking that way just out of the question since it means putting others ahead of yourself?

  • http://www.facebook.com/robert.kreider.9 Robert B Kreider

    “SHAMEFUL” What is deep in your heart comes out of your mouth (is expressed in words, words written with the pen) Just SHAMEFULLY LOST ie: the purpose, meaning, remedy of EASTER from GOD. Thank you God for Your Son, Jesus, the Gift of God’s Grace. Repent, Receive, Reborn.

      So the use of colored eggs and bunnies is preferable over an acknowledged leader and hero? Are you aware that colored eggs and bunnies are pagan symbols?

  • Daniel Kim

    Come on. Billions serve Jesus. You can’t just do that. Cesar was a great man but Jesus was better. Also people in Asia know who Jesus is. No one in Asia knows who Cesar is. And people are saying use bing? Bing is horrible. They give you results not related to your search. Tried it 3 times and all 3 times it was random. Hopefully, Google will make it up but we must still believe in The Lord. And no, I am not a pastor but I am a firm believer in Christ

  • Ted Lukowski

  • William Stein

    Just another SLAM against Christians. Yup, the Jews who own Google have ignored and insulted the GOYIM once again. (Goyim means cattle – this is how they refer to non-jews) Aren’t they sweet? JEWISH racial, religious, and cultural supremacy at it’s VERY best!

  • Cheri Isbell

      I’m starting to wonder if Google has MAJOR stock in BING and this was the plan all along! LOL

      I’d like to see equal outrage against the insanity of Agenda 21.

    • Diane Rumrill-Hall

      Enjoy your pagan symbols. Easter eggs and bunnies are documented pagan, fertility symbols. I think it was genius that our country is predicated on the separation of Church and State. So that knee jerk reactions by so called Christians are not causing policy. Now that would be a mistake. The fact is that Easter Sunday moves each year, it is not always March 31. Chavez was born on March 31. Many of us consider him a brave hero and his works for his people would have been similar to the habits of Jesus.

    This is really just utterly stupid of Google. In typical fashion, they support the counter-culture instead of being boldly with the majority of Americans. If Google wasn’t already so wealthy and ensconced I’d say this was a pretty bad marketing decision. Someday they won’t be so wealthy and ensconced, and that day is coming sooner than they think.

    Sever your ties with Google…that’s what I did. Years back I got rid of google news as a ‘start page’ or ‘homepage’. I do not use their email. And, I try to avoid their search engine whenever possible. Back during the Bush administration I had noticed an overwhelming amount of antisemitic news articles and an overwhelming amount of liberal leaning biased news. That’s when I decided to move out of the google-sphere whenever possible. This shot at Christians on Easter comes as no surprise to me but more like par for the course when it comes to Google. If you are bothered by this insensitivity, do what I did….try to avoid Google services whenever possible including their search engine.

    It seems Google doesn’t like to recognize people who have given their lives for them. Drive in movie theaters, flag animations, and Cesar Chavez are more important than DDay, Memorial Day, or Easter. I suddenly don’t like my Android phone anymore. Thank goodness I have my window surface pro with bing and will be getting a new Windows 8 phone. While I’m greatful for drive in theaters and the labor changes Chavez gave us, I’m just a little more appreciative of the lives Jesus Christ, and the men and women of our armed services sacrificed for the sake of my soul and freedom. With issues like this I simply like to remember the teachings of American Transcendentalist Philosopher Henry Thoreau’s Civil Disobedience, which can closely be summarized as , if you don’t like it, don’t participate. See ya Google.

          And your point is what exactly? I don’t think Bing has advocated or promoted a communist in place of Easter or the celebration of what Easter means to Christians. The war on Christianity is more than just Google, can’t say Merry Christmas, can’t say Easter Bunny, can’t say this, that or the other thing because it ‘offends’ those who choose not to believe in anything but themselves. It doesn’t matter that you offend Christians. I don’t care if you do not believe, but don’t trample upon my rights to believe, guarantied to me by the Constitution of the United States, which reads and I quote “Freedom OF Religion” not freedom from religion. I have not used Google since Bing came out, for any number of reasons, but others have the right to choose another search engine because they disagree with Google’s disrespect of Christianity. You lefties thought it was just fine for Hobby Lobby to have to surrender to your dictates when the owner expressed views indicating he had religious issues with the contraception mandates in Obamacare, you also had no problems boycotting and picketing Chick-fil-A when their owner pronounced his religious beliefs concerning gay marriage. But holy cow, ppl choose to boycott Google for the ‘in your face disrespect’ attitude and you are going to tell them how horrible and intolerant they all are for choosing to utilize a company that at leasts shows a certain amount of respect and inclusiveness for Christians.

      Free speech does not include an obligation on the part of others to respect your opinion, and engaging in debate is equally a use of free speech.

      Ironic that you make this complaint while simultaneously criticizing Google for exercising ITS right to free speech by recognizing a secular holiday.

      • WilliamAmos

        Google is a public entity. So it is right and proper to critisise it’s policy as a private citizen. Attacking a private citisen for airing their views is more reprehensible.

        • mldi

          Well, according to you right wingers, corporations are citizens, which in turn grants them the right to free speech.

          This website also belongs to a public entity, no?

          So where does that leave us.

          Go ahead. How you justify some things but ridicule others is hilarious.

        • Gawdzila

          1) Google is NOT a public entity. It is a privately held corporation.
          2) Your first point is a non-sequitur.

          3) No, it isn’t more reprehensible. In fact it is even MORE important to do so. Attacking a private citizens views is part of a normal debate. Insisting that the views of private citizens shouldn’t be attacked is, in effect, insisting that there should be no public-sphere discussions of issues among normal people. It’s a ridiculous suggestion to make.

      In 2011 Easter fell on April 24, on April 4 in 2010. This is a coincidence not a slap in the face of Christian faith. Are colored eggs and bunnies, well documented symbols of a pagan religion, preferable to an acknowledged hero? Coincidence not disrespect of Easter.

      • Jim Johnson

        Is a thug who resorted to terrorism to get what he wanted preferable to a man that had a profound impact on all humanity?

        • Diane Rumrill-Hall

          Again, this is a coincidence, not Chavez vs Jesus. Easter is on a different sunday every year, would you rather see bunnies and colored eggs? Very pagan symbols, not sure how they honor the idea of Easter.

      • DeborahPE

        Diane, under Chávez’s leadership, Venezuela became one of the deadliest countries on the planet, with more than 120,000 murders during his first decade in office. And while politically motivated arrests of Chávez’s enemies mushroomed, 90 per cent of murders went unsolved. That’s YOUR hero?

      • DeborahPE

        Wrong Chavez. My mistake.
        Still Chavez should NEVER be honored over Jesus Christ.

    • WhyteRaven74

  • Andrew St. Clair

    Did you all expect that Google would ever put an image of Jesus on the cross or rising from the grave on their front page? Seriously?

    Right now, Bing.com has a photo of Easter Eggs on their front page. The Easter Bunny and Easter Eggs have nothing to do with the resurrection of our Lord and Savior. So even if Google made the ‘O’s into eggs with chirping birds it’s still not celebrating Easter in the true religious sense.

    Google doesn’t owe anyone anything. It’s their site and they can do what they want. But picture this. what if Ronald Reagan’s birthday fell on Easter Sunday. Would you all be up in arms over it if they pasted his pic in the middle? Nope. But really, It’s not like Chavez was a murderer. Just let it go. You don’t need Google (or any website for that matter) to go to mass and celebrate Easter.

    • Jim Johnson

      You’re right, Google doesn’t owe us peons a thing, but neither do we owe them the use of their product. That’s good ‘ol capitalism at work. We can choose to use or not use a product FOR ANY REASON and try to persuade those around us to do the same. I happen to think Jesus Christ had a more profound impact on the world than Cesar Chavez.

      • Andrew St. Clair

    Google, this is insulting. I don’t usually care what doodles you place upon your homepage and I have a very thick skin, when it comes to my religion, but somehow your slight has breached it. If you had wanted to appease the non-christians and give the appearance of being politically correct, you should’ve just kept your regular “Google” doodle. But to forego Easter entirely and post the picture of a christian man whom only a miniscule number people would deem sufficient to be honored by a doodle is unforgivable. Secondly, since Cesar was a christian man, I’m all but certain that he himself would be embarrassed & angered by this if he was alive. And finally, 99.999% of the world’s people haven’t a clue who Cesar Chavez was and I see from MANY postings online that nearly all of them are mistaking Cesar for the recently deceased piddly little dictator Hugo Chavez. Google, what on EARTH were you thinking??

    • http://twitter.com/KaylaWildflower @KaylaWildflower

      Maybe they’re thinking that people like yourself need much more education on Cesar Chavez. If Cesar Chavez was born on this day, WHEN should Google honor him? If people don’t deem Chavez sufficient, they have no idea what he accomplished. To Mexican-Americans he is like Martin Luther King, Jr.

    • Neal Jones

What he did for the workers of California was good but he is NOT above Jesus Christ and never will be. Tells us all a lot about the staff, producers, writers, who are Google. They took away our choice to use our OWN picture on the search page and replaced it with their doodle of which nothing they have put up there is really worth anything. Bad move Google, it appears you are NOT as great as you all would think you are. There are other search engines that can be used.

    Maybe they just wanted to do something different than another Easter poster…

    • fredkelly

      Good point. Maybe they’ll go with a Buzz Aldrin birthday tribute next January 20th instead of Martin Luther King.

      • http://www.facebook.com/jackson.davis.52056 Jackson Davis

        Sure! Why not? I haven’t heard anything about this Buzz Aldrin, but i would love to learn about him if he’s important to history in some way.

        • http://www.facebook.com/jackson.davis.52056 Jackson Davis

          Just googled it and saw that he was the second man to walk on the moon. I don’t see the harm in putting that on Google’s front page and i learned something new from it. :)

  • gooie

    wow. people are way too touchy about this. google has done easter in past years. is it that ridiculous for them to switch it up?

  • http://www.facebook.com/steve.dutch.564 Steve Dutch

    Because what’s Christian about pushing for rights for poor workers? We prefer OUR Christianity full of feel-good messages and empty gestures.

    • antimule

      I don’t think that brand of Christianity that is generally preached in America counts even as a feel-good message. What exactly is good about everyone in the world except a handful of ‘born-again’ Christians going to Hell?

  • Pieter

    I just changed to Bing.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jackson.davis.52056 Jackson Davis

      Why? Because someone has different beliefs than you? That would make you a bigot..

      • Pieter

        Google is stupid. More people celebrate Easter than some small time union organizer.

        • http://www.facebook.com/jackson.davis.52056 Jackson Davis

          So? Just because more people celebrate or know about something makes it stupid to try and inform others on different topics?

          • Pieter

            Easter is more important. I don’t mind Caser Chavez at all, but to celebrate him instead of Easter is just plain lunacy.

          • http://www.facebook.com/jackson.davis.52056 Jackson Davis

            When did they say they were celebrating anything? They are informing us on what this man did. That’s hardly ‘celebrating’,

          • Pieter

            Whatever the word is, they shouldn’t be informing us about such an insignificant guy on such an important holiday.

          • http://www.facebook.com/jackson.davis.52056 Jackson Davis

            Insignificant? Did you even read about what he did, or just start arguing about it right away?

          • Axel Nanji

            Bro, if google wanted people to KNOW about a great man, they wouldn’t abuse a WIDELY celebrated holiday just to educate people. They could have educated the population following google ANY day they wanted, but to choose Easter? I don’t buy into this being “Harmless” or “Educational”.

        • Grace

          But everybody CAN celebrate that ‘small time union organizer.’ Easter is a religious holiday, thus discluding a number of people not of that religion.

        • WhyteRaven74

          Funny that organizer happened to live by the precepts Jesus taught people to live by, like helping the needy

    • WhyteRaven74

      How exactly will that help the needy? Oh that’s right you don’t care about the needy, you only care about yourself and your feigned offense over a picture on the internet.

      • jasamc

        Proof, please.

        • WhyteRaven74

          Proof of not caring about the needy? Posting here to announce changing to Bing, thus showing something completely irrelevant, a picture on the internet, is enough to even care about. A person who cares for the plight of the needy won’t care what Google is doing. They certainly won’t expect to have themselves or faith acknowledged, by anyone.

          • jasamc

            That makes no sense. I complained, but yet, I work with Habitat for Humanity, and I tutor kids in a low income area. The two do not relate to one another. So, for you to say that about the original poster, you need to have proof that he doesn’t care about others. I await that proof, or your apology to the original poster.

          • Rhiannon Schaefer

          • Rhiannon Schaefer

            I don’t know how my english could possibly be bad enough for you to comment on it, or why you feel the absolute need to write something snide about everything I say, but the fact that you have nothing better to do on Easter is kind of sad.

          • jasamc

            Huh, and yet, here you are replying. Try to keep up, kid.

          • WhyteRaven74

            So if you’re doing all that, why do you give a damn what Google is doing? How is it relevant to anything?

      You are, of course, aware that they have done MANY Easter doodles before, aren’t you? My goodness you’re easily offended.

      • Axel Nanji

        It would be pretty ignorant to say that google didn’t intend to send a message. If they have done “MANY Easter doodles” then why would they make a complete switch to a man (Who may have done great things) instead of another Easter doodle. Why not at least throw in a little Easter color+Chavez? or a few eggs? To make that big of a change in google tradition obviously means there is some kind of point to be made.

  • Gawdzila

    Google did Easter *last* year. Everyone is not obligated to make a big deal of your holiday. You’ll get over it.

    • weirdmoment

      No they didn’t. Last time was in 2000. But I agree with your point though.

  • mambobananapatch

    > Why is Jesus not on google but Cesar Chavez and his 86th birthday is ???

    Cesar Chavez actually exists, for one thing.

  • Jeff Lagemann

    Not sure why this is a big deal. Jesus told you render unto Ceaser what is Ceaser….or in this case Cesar. And render unto God what is Gods

  • http://www.facebook.com/PeytonsVols Peyton Murray

    Good for Google! Thanks for not caving into the ad populum argument of “2 billion” Christians by being pressured into displaying a logo supporting their fantasy. Kudos to Google for paying tribute to a real human who fought for human rights and civil liberties… for supporting a human who actually helped other humans!

  • Scott Denson

    Cry a freakin River – Google isnt Chick Fil a.

  • WhyteRaven74

    Chavez devoted his life to helping the poor, disadvantaged, taken advantage of and others in need. In other words, he lived how Jesus said people are supposed to live. Good choice for the day.

  • Question__Mark

    And now we begin to see the public attitude that the growth of prosperity preaching in the church in the past thirty years or so has wrought. Of course when you preach what the people want to hear your message will be extremely popular.

    Here in America we seem to be in a headlong rush to get ahead. In that rush to get ahead of someone else, I urge you to consider: who is being left behind?

    What would Jesus’s message be today, and what people alive now best echo the teaching of Jesus? (for those who believe that the teaching of Jesus has merit and ought to be followed)

  • Victor Ruser

    I am not even religious and I think that Google should of done something small like one O as and egg and still keep Chavez in there.

  • Glenda

    This saddens me.

  • chuckie

    So to protest google people turn to bing!…bing who is MORE liberal than google….how does this work? This is how you people celebrate easter by raging over a doodle? REALLY?!

    • WhyteRaven74

      So you’re demanding Google cater to your whims? How very Christian. After all a picture matters far more than the the well being of the needy doesn’t it?

    Google’s a socialist site that sells your data and info to third parties. Just move to a better search engine like Hot Bot or Duck Duck Go that won’t sell your data or try to pass on any propaganda.

  • johnny apple seed

    Maybe they are trying to keep religion off their page, its not like they put up jewish or muslim doodles. Maybe they are trying to respect everyones religion by not focusing on one. Like our children do in school. Google is used all over the world, not just by christians.

    • Loops

      I agree. One of the tweets above mentions that Google “alienated all Christians”. I’m like what?? The U.S. does that on a daily basis! We alienate other religions like Hinduism or Buddhism when we don’t recognize their special holidays or special events.

  • robertscally

    Can someone explain to the christians that the easter bunny is not part of christianity, it was created by corporations to sell chocolate eggs and make a massive profit.

    • flyboy

      That’s not the point, mouth breathing knuckle dragger.

  • Gawdzila

    Calm down. Maybe they’ll do an Easter thing on the Eastern Orthodox observation in May. Or are those the wrong kind of Christians?

  • dotzo

    Okay… after reading every comment I was shown, absolutely NO ONE seems to understand that Easter is NOT a christian religion. It’s a pagan festival of fertility that the catholic church, many, many years ago, related to the resurrection (if you believe such nonsense) to get more people to join christianity. The same goes for X-mas. That’s a lot of different celebrations (all pagan) combined, some of which include saturnalia and the yule log tradition of the Viking peoples.

    So go ahead and switch to Bing because you think Google insulted your religious holiday, but keep in mind that nearly every christian/catholic holiday is not original and just a bastardization of a pagan holiday as propaganda to recruit more people to the christian/catholic cause.

    Let the hate begin… way to follow in Jesus’ footsteps there christians.

    • flyboy

      Only in the minds of you liberals is disagreement and the freedom to boycott “Hate”. Petulant liberals.

      • WhyteRaven74

        Trying to castigate Chavez for being a socialist, a communist and other things is not the mark of people free from hate. Indeed trying to castigate Chavez at all is not a mark of such people.

  • Jack Deth

    I’m confused.

    What does a dead unionizing lettuce picker, or a sociopath tinpot dictator have to do with the resurrection of Christ?

  • flyboy

    Who cares. I dumped my Gmail account and stopped using their search engine years ago because they were comprised of nothing but a bunch of bed wetting communist-sympathizing left wingnut libs. I never looked back, either.

    Exercise your freedom to flush down the toilet anything you don’t like like a stinkin’ turd – especially if it’s involved with left wingnut liberalism (which is usually one and the same).

  • http://twitter.com/avatuar Matt Thompson

    WOW… you could have just done a doodle of the Easter bunny and you wouldn’t have pissed off half the world. Good job Google. While I may not switch over night due to habit, definitely going to re-prioritize to Bing.

  • ESParker

    Nothing against Caesar Chavez, but what an inappropriate post on Easter. All Christians should delete their Goggle apps from their phones and computers. I have!! Make our displeasure known with how Google has treated the celebration of our Lord’s rise to eternal life.

  • Axel Nanji

    I think we can all agree that no Corporation/Business needs to do anything for anyone. But I think we can also agree that if you’re going to pretend to be involved with society, a Holiday such as Easter or any other historical holiday should not be overshadowed by another holiday that most RECENTLY came into being.

    • WhyteRaven74

      What better way to honor Jesus than to honor a man who helped those in need?

      • Axel Nanji

        “What better way to honor Jesus” I’m sorry I’m missing the part where they said “Remembering Cesar Chavez in honor of Jesus Christ”

        • WhyteRaven74

          It could be pure coincidence but it still works. And Google doesn’t have to be the one pointing out. Simply realizing they are honoring a man who helped those in need is enough.

          • Axel Nanji

            Yea but when the entire world is celebrating something you’re company celebrated numerous times and you instead celebrate someone else who could be celebrated one day after, or any day of the year, they are askin for it.

          • Gawdzila

            The whole world ISN’T celebrating something. Eastern Orthodox Christians, of which there are many, won’t be celebrating Easter until May. Or are they the wrong kind of Christians?

          • WhyteRaven74

            Today is Chavez’s birthday. And it’s Jesus that can be honored any day of the year.

  • PretaniVirago

    Hmmm, Chavez and Jesus both socialists of their time?
    A bit subtle, Google, but doable.

    Why should Google care about a ‘holiday’ that is about as real as Valentine’s Day? I liked it better when it was pagan…

    • jerry148

      The holiday itself is very much real. What is in dispute is whether the tenets of the holiday (as celebrated by Christians) are legit, or whether it’s simply just another day.

      • $30765339

        Go eat another chocolate bunny if that will make you closer to jesu. It will take the sting off the fact that nearly all christian ritual was created after his death for marketing and recruitment purposes.

    Many have known that Google has a liberal bias, after today 500 million or so new folks will come to that solid realization.

    My guess is that this is the turning point for Google. Not only have they lost millions of customers/users today, they are inspiring vengeful competition.

    • WhyteRaven74

      What’s so wrong about honoring a man who lived as Jesus taught people to live by helping those in need?

        a heroic labor leader who was very religious lmao that is what is so very ironic

    • Gawdzila

  • nordicwinds1969

    I cannot believe this! Are you kidding me!? I want a cross up for honor of our Jesus Christ that died for our sins and then rose up on Easter Sunday to show death would not keep a hold on him.

    OK, I would settle for cute little bunnies and a bunch of eggs and such! Cesar Chavez can be hononred tomorrow! That is when all the others are celebrating it!

    I am sickened that he, who did only for one part of the masses would be chosen over one who has died for all.

    Shame!

  • Benny King

    Christians trying to enforce recognition of their made up religion just as they have for centuries which is the only reason believing in a sky fairy is still relevant. Because if you don’t believe you’ll be sued, screamed at (witnessed to!), or have to watch the collective conservative conscience throw a “i’m holding my breath until i’m blue” temper tantrum… again.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003056082012 Michael Young

    I find it funny. Everyone can celebrate and appreciate Cesar Chavez. This is the less discriminatory way to go. A much better choice for google, and I am proud of them. Leave it to the celebrators of a faith to feel like they are being targeted because someone isnt doing something in their interest. Heads up you faith preachers, not everyone believes in your faith, and not everyone celebrates it for the same reason. Learn this, and maybe you wont be condemned to what ever the worst fate is for you after death.

    Oh also, to everyone saying they are going to use bing…Go for it, you’ll be back. Its already drilled in your subconscious to use google. I give you 5 minutes after each of your posts before you went to google something.

    Cesar Chavez birthday will always be the same. Easter continues to change every year. Why not honor Christ. Of those 2 billion people you have offended how many use Google? I would imagine quite a few. While Google does a great job its success would not be possible without its users. Something to think about. We don’t need Google. But as Christians we need Christ. I know where my priorities are.

    • WhyteRaven74

      It’s funny but among my Christian friends, none is offended. Indeed many are glad Google did what they did. As for needing Christ, what about following his teachings, like helping those in need?

    • Benny King

      But as Christian hypocrites you still use Google, you just threaten them when they don’t adopt your beliefs.

    • WhyteRaven74

      So you don’t believe in Jesus’ teachings either eh?

  • Tom Vesters

    Funny how everyone quoting the 2 billion Christians statistic actually are insulting a rather large group of Christians themselves. After all, for Orthodox Christians, amongst others, Easter is not today but on the 5th of May this year. So actually by depicting today as Easter, they would actively disagree with a rather large religious group, whereas by sticking to a fact everyone agrees on, it goes away from awkward religious politics. As a company, I would choose the latter.

  • Tony Blue

    I’m glad Google posted about Chavez. I got to learn something new today, which I try and do everyday. I learned about Easter and it’s pagan origins, the way christians melded those origins with the observance of a man rising from the dead after being so for three days, (which we know is impossible). That was the other day, which is why I was glad to learn something new today. That seems to be something most christians have an aversion to. It doesn’t matter which day people choose to celebrate something. Being alive makes everyday a holiday for me. Besides, Eastern orthodox christians mark Easter using the Julian calender. Look it up if you don’t know what that is, then you will learn something new today. They will celebrate Easter on May 5 this year. I suppose people will complain that they doodle Cinco De Mayo over Easter on that day. Christians get two separate opportunities to celebrate the same convoluted holiday that defies logic,(It defies logic not just because of the implausibility of the resurrection but also the bizarre melding of pagan and christian ritual and the ridiculous way of calendering it with the full moon), yet still complain. Americans love to complain about inane little things despite living in the country with the most opportunity to do something besides complain.

    • Max Black

      RE”from the dead after being so for three days, (which we know is impossible)” NOT for God. You see.. he was God made man. perhaps you should read the Bible instead of attacking it based on what some homosexual professor taught you.

    How stupid can Google be? The answer is on their home page today. It has nothing to do with religion, Easter is a big deal to many religions and multitudes of people.

      Jesus didn’t exist. Bing has Easter eggs and Microsoft is better than Google how?

      What religion besides Christianity is Easter a big deal to?

  • Jedd McHead

    I cancelled my g-mail account and will use Bing going forward. Google got Easter Egg on its’ face today — and I hope they lose a ton of clients for it.

    • Hetal

      Not likely.

    • Live like nobody is watching

      While Google is busy improving the world through technology and philanthropy, you’re busy crying about about the doodle they put on their home page. You are a sad person. You stay rooted in the dark ages with your fairy tales while those of us that live in reality try to make this planet a better place.

    • Benny King

      Because BIng’s Easter eggs are more Christian?

  • CalebBoone

    Dear Ladies and Gentlemen:

    I saw this and didn’t realize it was Caesar Chavez’ birthday.

    Caesar Chavez helped many people. He could have been honored by Google by displaying his picture one or two days after Easter, with a small caption giving his real birthdate.

    No one would have been offended by that.

    Those people Chavez helped are almost all Christian and they would have wanted it that way.

    Today is the greatest day of Jesus’ Love for all Christians.

    We Christians should show Jesus’ Unlimited Love and Unlimited Forgiveness to everyone, every day, always.

    Hallelujah!

    Sincerely yours,
    Caleb Boone.

    Time to make Bing my search engine

  • http://www.facebook.com/jacob.warfield.3 Jacob Warfield

    Well I’m celebrating Easter, by switching over to bing.

    • Benny King

      What does that accomplish? Enjoy your inferior search engine, I’m sure Microsoft is laughing that the only thing you need to do is post a background of Easter eggs to appease Christians.

      Celebrate Easter OR ELSE. Who Would Jesus Karate Chop At Google?

  • SweetMarmot

    From what I understand, Cesar Chavez was a Catholic, and I’m sure he celebrated Easter many times in his life. Still I get your point. Maybe Google could have done a little something for Cesar’s birthday and Easter as well.

  • RUTH

    I don’t understand why people make a big deal out of this, it’s not like google is obliged to follow any one’s religion or stance on a opinion. It’s not like google is stopping anyone from celebrating easter, merely google is just not following another cliched holiday. I personally like it when google uses other facts that are less known to others as it broadens my mind set. I feel like people may be spending too much time on the internet in which they notice what google post pictures of.

  • shannon braxton

    Settle down people. What do an egg, candy, bunny, or basket, have to do with Jesus? Who has taken a picture of jesus to share with the world? If Google wants to celebrate people that made a difference…I don’t think the father, son, or the holy sprit will be mad. Why are you??? Let us celebrate JESUS in our hearts, words, behavior, and prayer. Let Google celebrate the people who had the strength to stand for others…

    • silverzone

      Agree, I personally don’t care if some people don’t believe in Jesus, and would never waste my time to try to convert anybody. Everybody can choose which search engine or software they will use.

  • David

    omg you people need to stop crying just because google didnt use doodle to put up something that easter related. grow up its their company and they can choose who they want to put on there.

  • VaVaVoom

    You could call them and/or FAX a note of disappointment to one (or all) of Google’s offices…I did! Their Mountain View, CA headquarters’ fax number is: 1 650-253-0001

      And to you I will quote the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 6 verses 1 to 8

      ” 1 Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven. 2 “So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 3 But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.”

      It seems to me that should be of far more concern than a picture on the internet.

      • VaVaVoom

        ….hmmm…okay, Erik…I do like that passage…but, what does it have to do with my post?…did I say something hypocritical or boastful or extreme? I was just giving people a place to vent…the source of their anger, itself: Google.

    • Live like nobody is watching

      Google doesn’t doodle for any religious holidays, Christian or other. They haven’t for a decade. Quit living in a cave.

      There must be a better fight for you to take up rather than crying about the homepage of the company that is routinely voted the best company on the planet to work for.

  • Live like nobody is watching

    Perhaps some of you folks should learn to ask questions instead of blindly following fairy tales that Christians stole from Pagans.

    “Ishtar”, which is pronounced “Easter”, was a day that commemorated the resurrection of one of their gods that they called “Tammuz”, who was believed to be the only begotten son of the moon-goddess and the sun-god.

    Ishtar was also the Babylonian goddess of fertility. Why the hell do you think Easter is still represented by eggs and rabbits? That’s right – because they both represent fertility, and the Christian Easter is just one of hundreds of stories stolen from other religions.

    The more you know…

  • Rhiannon Schaefer

    You know… I’m browsing through all these comments, and kind of trying not to laugh… I wish I could complain half as much when a well-known organization doesn’t recognize one of my holidays. So google decides to remain neutral on the doodle-thing today. So what? Google can do whatever it wants, and something tells me that it doesn’t really matter if you stop using google for awhile. They’ve done Easter before, maybe they wanted to try something else, or maybe they had it set up to do this guy’s birthday before people realized Easter was today this year! So what? Google isn’t a religious organization, so they don’t HAVE to post religious things all over their pages. Maybe I should start a petition so that on the next Pagan holiday, one of their Os has a star on it. Or will that just make you guys freak out even worse?

    If this was really so terrible, why doesn’t Jesus come down and rant at Google? No offense, but I’m pretty sure he’d be content knowing he had people celebrating Easter period, and He’d give Chavez a pat on the back for what he’s done for us in Labor. So how about everyone just calm down and go about their holiday business?

    • WhyteRaven74

      Jesus would be wondering how so many people who claim to follow him are insisting on putting themselves ahead of those in need. And why they seem to be so utterly unaware of anything he taught let alone expected of people. Which really is all being a Christian is.

    • jasamc

      Oh, I’m sorry. Did our taking 5 minutes of our time to complain make you cranky? You probably could have just ignored it if it was so trivial to you, but the fact that you have commented repeatedly here says more about you than you might like.

      • Rhiannon Schaefer

        If I took 5 minutes to complain about an organization not plastering my holiday all over themselves and people saw it, I’d be openly persecuted and damned left and right. I like that I’ve commented more than once. The fact that you’re attacking me says more about you than you’d like, though.

        Oh, I’m sorry. Did a Pagan with an opinion make you cranky? You probably could have just ignored me it if it was so terrible for you to consider the rest of the planet, but the fact that you’ve yelled about it repeatedly blatantly states that you aren’t being very true to Jesus’ teachings. I don’t think someone who preached about compassion and helping others would appreciate all of his followers getting pissed off because his picture isn’t on a website.

        See? I can be like that too. :)

        • jasamc

          Oh my, you think too highly of yourself. I’m not put off by you at all. I’m just waiting for the laundry to finish, so I’m enjoying myself mocking you idiots.

          Yes, I’m sure Jesus was thinking about google when He did His teachings.

          • Rhiannon Schaefer

            I think too highly of myself, then. That’s your excuse for all the comment-stalking and attempted put-downs? You aren’t mocking anyone, you’re being an idiot by continuously seeking people out to argue with over a picture. And no, I’m sure he wasn’t thinking of Google, I’m sure he was thinking of the people who were listening to him and hoping that they would continue his teachings. Besides, according to Christians, he’s “risen” therefore, he’s alive and watching you. Right now. Watching you argue over a picture. Given the person he supposedly was, I’m pretty sure he’s disappointed in the amount of people that are ruining his day by sitting here and arguing over a picture. Please, comment some more. Tell me that I’m stupid, or a bigot. I’m only being so in reaction to you.

            P.S. In case you hadn’t noticed, you were being mocked. I used the same template and tone that you did. How does that make me wrong and you right? It doesn’t. It makes you look like you’re running out of good comebacks.

          • jasamc

            The funny thing is that you are posting here, on a right wing site, as an opposition voice, yet complaining about “comment stalking”. If you don’t want someone to disagree with you, don’t go to a right wing site and post liberal idiocies.

            And if you thought you were using the same template and tone, you’ve done a bad job of it. You really need a LOT of work on your writing “skills”. Good try at least…okay, that was a lie, it wasn’t good, it wasn’t even average. I’m sure you’re not intentionally stupid, but, yes, you are a bigot.

          • Rhiannon Schaefer

            Okay, give me a second here to use good’ol copy and paste….

            You: Oh, I’m sorry. Did our taking 5 minutes of our time to complain make
            you cranky? You probably could have just ignored it if it was so trivial
            to you, but the fact that you have commented repeatedly here says more
            about you than you might like.

            Me: Oh, I’m sorry. Did a Pagan with an opinion make you cranky? You probably
            could have just ignored me it if it was so terrible for you to consider
            the rest of the planet, but the fact that you’ve yelled about it
            repeatedly blatantly states that you aren’t being very true to Jesus’
            teachings. I don’t think someone who preached about compassion and
            helping others would appreciate all of his followers getting pissed off
            because his picture isn’t on a website.

            Yep. Basically the same, except that mine is longer. I’m not being a bigot. I’m not saying I’m better… well at this point, maybe I am. But if I bug you so much, why not ignore me? Is someone holding a gun to your head and telling you “There she is. Posting again. Being alive, having an opinion, and contradicting your views. GET HER.”? If so, maybe you ought to seek some help. But what you’re doing is wasting everyone’s time. Wasting yours because you supposedly have something better to do, and wasting mine because I feel the need to continue our wonderful conversations.

          • jasamc

            First, the difference, dear child, in the second line. Notice the word “complain”. It was a reference to the previous post. It was used intentionally. In yours, the word “Pagan” comes out of left field. Same for “opinion”. Second, notice that mine was 3 short lines long. Yours was longer, using longer run on sentences. So, “template”??? Not so much. More work is required.

            And you might be better than me…except at Government. And English. Probably not at Math, either. You probably have me in Biology and Chemistry, although I probably would smoke you in Physics and Astronomy.

            To wit: as I said earlier, I’m doing laundry. While waiting to move things from washer to dryer, or taking care of what comes out of the dryer, I post. It’s a fun little diversion on a rainy day. Sorry, if you hadn’t acted like a total tool on your first post, I probably would have ignored you.

          • Rhiannon Schaefer

            Oh no, those were intentional, and if you paid attention, you’d notice that those words refer to my original post. “Pagan” coming from the fact that, well, I’m Pagan; “Opinion” coming from the fact that the original post was demonstrating my opinion.

            Now, if you’re done yammering about my sentence structure, which is just as good as yours, I’d like to know how I was “acting like a tool”.

          • jasamc

            Okay, apparently, I’m going to have to take this much more slowly. The word “complain” was actually in the post to which I was responding. My use of it in my post was reflective of that, referencing their own word choice. Your use of Pagan and opinion were reflective of nothing in my post. Therefore, you weren’t using my “template”, you were just flailing about.

            And I showed how you acting like a tool in another post. *sigh* Children these days…

          • Rhiannon Schaefer

            I used the same initial wording at the beginning. That is how I came to decide to use the word “template”. Forgive me for my ill-used label. I should have said “paraphrasing”. The word “complain” was irrelevant in the point I was attempting to make to you. Unless it would be better if I replaced my opinion with a complaint. But I digress.

            Maybe I should say this a little more slowly… If… you… don’t want… to listen… to me… then STOP….? I don’t know how else to say it to make you understand. You call me a child, and yet you continue to argue with me over my wording? My sarcasm?

            Let me have my opinion then. I’ll complain about the hypocrisy that was blatantly being displayed at the time of my original post, and you can continue to come up with a good way to make me seem like a bad guy for it. Believe it or not, that’s what you’re doing. You are dissecting me and calling me out on what you claim to be horrifying grammar problems, when this has nothing to do with my opinion. I stated that I wonder what would happen of Google used pentacles on one of my holidays, and I have my answer. You and those like you would condemn it. Yet I have to quietly sit here while you complain because they, just like they have for several years, did not post a doodle about Easter.

            Would you rather I apologize for pointing out the unfairness?

          • jasamc

            Apparently, I owe you an apology for believing that you actually had a greater than middle school education. Are you that incapable of extrapolating a point? Someone asked about how we would react if they were to put up a picture of Mohammed on his birthday. I said I wouldn’t care, but that the billions of Muslims probably would. So, since that wasn’t succinct enough for you, allow me to answer you in words you might understand:

            I don’t care if they used a pentacle on one your holidays. I don’t care if they put a tree up on a Druid holiday (you guys share Samhaim, so you could put a pentacle ON a tree, I guess). I don’t care if they put up a Star of David on Purim or Passover. No, I would have no problem with that. I would not complain about that.

            Man, I hope that is clear, because if not, you need more help than I can list.

          • Rhiannon Schaefer

            How am I demonstrating a lower education? I have literally done nothing wrong besides make points in a way that YOU were unable to understand. Maybe YOU wouldn’t have a problem, but that’s YOU. My original post was addressing EVERYONE. You are currently fighting me over absolutely nothing, or at least something that you claim is not worth fighting over. And all the while, you are attempting to prove your points by claiming that I lack intelligence, yet to every point that I or anyone else makes, you demand proof. Where is your proof to my stupidity? The dumbest thing I’ve done is bothered to put up with your constant monologues about my imagined stupidity.

            You demand perfect grammar, and yet you don’t use it. You demand evidence, and yet you have none. You claim that I think too highly of myself, and yet you use your own opinion as a basis for what everyone else thinks. You launch a complaint about someone’s lack of linear and concise argument, and then almost immediately change the subject and repeatedly use name-calling tactics to try to shut them up. You claim that I’m childish, and yet one of the main points of every post you make against me is your claim that I’m just stupid.

            I came here with an opinion, and though my first sentence was ill-worded, it made perfect sense for the point I was making: Most of the people posting on this thread are being hypocrites.

            And, using you as a prime example, I find that I am correct in my statement.

            If you have anything else to say, don’t bother saying it. I’m now logging out for the night… then again, please do say something more. I love a good joke in the morning, and I’m sure you’ll come up with a great way to call me stupid. Again.

          • jasamc

            How am I demonstrating a lower education?

            By not understanding sentences written at a secondary level.

            You claim that I’m childish, and yet one of the main points of every post you make against me is your claim that I’m just stupid.

            Again, you make a claim that is a lie. I have, repeatedly, said you are not stupid. Repeatedly. I think, at this point, you are just being a drama queen, and are too wrapped up in your “Oh, woe is me” teenage angst BS to think clearly. Please feel free to reply when you’re not acting like an overly tired 8 year old.

  • Mario Dominic Alfonso

    It amazes me how ignorant some people can be….. For all those who are shocked, dismayed and indignant, because Google commemorated Cesar Chavez’s birthday today, instead of something Easter related, I’ve got news for you – it is NOT Easter Sunday for the majority of people around the world today!

    Only 33% of the world’s population is Christian, which means that today is a Sunday just like any other for the other 67%, as well as for Orthodox Christians who celebrate Easter on May 5th this year. Considering that Google is used by people from all over the world, the majority of which do NOT celebrate Easter today, I think they did the right thing in choosing to commemorate Cesar Chavez’s birthday instead.

    I have a question for all of you who think that Google’s doodle should be Easter-themed: How would you feel if Google used an image of Muhammad on January 25th, in order to celebrate the Prophet Muhammad’s birthday, which is likewise considered a holy day by Muslims? Do you really think that Google should use images that favor one certain religion (which could exclude or alienate all those of a different religious persuasion), or should Google use images that are all-inclusive, universal and promote social justice and equality?

    As for Google choosing Cesar Chavez for today’s doodle, I’d just like to remind everyone, that Cesar Chavez dedicated his life to helping the poor, the marginalized, those who were looked down upon by society, and who were oftentimes exploited and denied their civil rights. He helped these people, not through acts of charity, but by empowering them to realize their own self-worth as human beings, and to stand up for their rights through the use of non-violent acts. I applaud Google for celebrating the birthday of an individual, who, throughout his life, was a tireless supporter of the underprivileged and who made such an important contribution to the fight for equal civil rights, both in the U.S. and abroad.

    • Rhiannon Schaefer

      Thank you, that was summed up very nicely.

    • jasamc

      Well, let’s see. If one third of 6 billion people celebrate Easter today, that means that 2 billion people were ignored today. Considering that google is used all over the world, one would imagine that Christians in each continent were unhappy over this, as opposed to the few who admire Cesar Chavez.

      Secondly, I’m all for google having Mohammed on their main page on 25 January. I would imagine the Muslims throughout the world wouldn’t like it, since they don’t like people posting images of him, but hey, I got no issue with it.

      And Cesar Chavez was a supporter of communism, a political system that caused the death of over 100 million people. Great guy, that Chavez.

      • Rhiannon Schaefer

        Let me just take a second to say this: I love how everyone is suddenly a supporter of communism the second they become disliked. At this rate, I’m about to become a communist too. Oops, wait… I already am! Everyone who went to kindergarten is!

        “Sharing is caring!” 😉

        • jasamc

          You’re…not that great with a dictionary, are you? Might I suggest you look up the term “communism” and get an understanding of the political structure of communism before you post about it again.

          • Rhiannon Schaefer

            Last I was in Government class (roughly 3 days ago), Communism was basically everyone sharing everything. The amount of pay, the land, everything. The fact that you couldn’t tell that I was joking signifies that you obviously need to get off the internet, because you can’t handle it very well.

          • jasamc

            Wow, that’s what you got out of Government class??? *sigh* Please, PLEASE, go get a book and read it.

            And your posts haven’t been the epitome of wit and knowledge, so I imagine I should be forgiven for not being able to tell the difference from when your posts are unintentionally stupid and intentionally stupid.

          • Rhiannon Schaefer

            And yet here you are again. Endlessly replying. Endlessly telling me I’m stupid for what started out as a basic opinion. If you’re supposed to be the epitome of wit and knowledge, then I’m happy with my sarcasm staying just the way it is.

          • jasamc

            And yet, here YOU are again. If you don’t want me to post, stop responding. And again YOU aren’t stupid. Your posts and your arguments are, but YOU are not. YOU can learn.

          • Rhiannon Schaefer

            I’m only posting because you are. And I can learn what…? To be more like you? No thanks. But please, explain to me how my arguments are stupid.

          • jasamc

            I took one of your posts apart on a different thread. But basically put: you start out completely self righteous and haughty (“I’m browsing through all these comments, and kind of trying not to laugh” “If this was really so terrible, why doesn’t Jesus come down and rant at Google”) and go from there.

            Next, you have no idea what communism is (” I love how everyone is suddenly a supporter of communism the second they become disliked”) and mock those who call Chavez out on it.

            Do you want me to continue?

          • Rhiannon Schaefer

            I’d like to know how it’s any different from most of the posts made by you, or any of the people I was criticizing. Or how just because I said that about Communism, it instantly means I have no idea what it is. Particularly because I was speaking from the experience of listening to how so many people think so many other people are communists, simply because they had a different view.

          • jasamc

            There is so much wrong in this post, I am at a loss where to start to try to help you. It’s like seeing someone on fire, on a nuclear weapon, being shot, and hit by lightning. The epic wrongness of it momentarily paralyzes you. Your post is the living example of the Jackie Chan meme: http://memegenerator.net/instance/31101962

          • Rhiannon Schaefer

            How? How is this so horrible that you can’t even speak? Is it because I made sense? Or is it because you’ve finally run out of witty retorts?

            Either way, I really don’t care. So far you’ve called me stupid, childish, and an embarrassment to myself… and now you’re attempting to fight me with a meme. I fail to see how this is making you look more adult.

          • jasamc

            I’m not attempting to look more adult. But it is telling that I have repeatedly said that you aren’t stupid, and yet, here you are, petulantly pouting that I did. Allow me, this time, to cut and paste my response from an earlier post:

            ” And again YOU aren’t stupid. Your posts and your arguments are, but YOU are not. YOU can learn.”

            Notice the “again” in that. All that being said, however, you are acting childishly. That much, you have correct.

            I work at a homeless shelter. So I’d stack up my deeds over yours any day.

            Oh, son, please. You’d just embarrass yourself trying to compare to me.

            And I don’t get butt hurt by anything liberals do. I just acknowledge the fact that you’re idiots and chuckle.

            Not pissed, son. Well, not about the picture. But the fact that liberals think developmentally disabled children are a punch line? Yeah, a bit pissed about that I guess.

          • weirdmoment

            I’m glad you’re not pissed at the picture because then you would have been truly a moron.

          • WhyteRaven74

            He needs to be first, no one else matters. Nothing matters but what he wants.

          • weirdmoment

            I figured that much the minute I heard his nonsense.

  • Stephen Carlon

    I think it is ironically fitting to quote Jesus who said in The Gospel of Mark 12:17-18a “And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him.
    18 Then come unto him the Sadducees, which say there is no resurrection;….

    It makes it very challenging to believe google believes in the resurrection when the face of google honors someone other than The savior of the world on the commemorative day He made history as the only God who died and lived to tell about it.

    • WhyteRaven74

      Can you tell me how whining about a picture on the internet fits in any way, shape or form, with what Jesus taught in Matthew chapter 25?

      31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
      34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ 41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’ 44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’ 45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’ 46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

      I don’t see anything in that that makes it acceptable to whine about something trivial let alone whining so that you put yourself ahead of those in need.

  • Homunculoid

    How hard do you have to try to NOT recognize Easter and Jesus Christ. This would be enough for me to boycott…have to use Google for work.

  • Charolette Ragsdale

    Time to boycott Google! Shame on them! There are plenty of other search engines to use so I will be using another one moving forward. If you are smart, you will do the same.

    • WhyteRaven74

      Shame on you for thinking a picture on the internet is such a big deal. Of all the things in the world to be upset about you’re upset by a picture. Truly a model of ethical concern you are.

      • Rhiannon Schaefer

        I agree with Erik. If I complained half as much about whenever some search engine didn’t commemorate a holiday of mine, I’d slap myself. Only a third of the planet even celebrates Easter. I applaud Google’s neutrality today, and how they’re remembering Chavez.

        • jasamc

          Oh, my. If you ever get to the point where you’re going to slap yourself, please upload the video. Do it repeatedly so that you get it just right.

            Dude are you seriously still pissed at the Cesar Chavez picture? OMG for an adult you’re an embarrassment. I’d expect a 10 year old to whine about dumb stuff like these but you…wow! Just wow…

          • jasamc

            Nice deflection. Good try, son. But the fact is, everyone knows that you are a hateful piece of crap who uses the R word as a joke. Pitiful, pathetic wretch.

          • weirdmoment

            haha Dude and you call yourself a Christian. What’s your Church? Westboro or something? Do me a favour and print out all these comments you made about me and read them to your congregation. I’m sure they will appreciate your marvelous Christian values.

          • jasamc

            I’m fairly certain that if I start with your use of the R word, no one will get too worked up over anything else I say.

          • weirdmoment

            haha Dude, you’re terrible at trolling. I suggest you get a life or do something this Easter Sunday. Westboro wants you back to picket a dead soldiers’ parade.

          • jasamc

            Good thing I wasn’t attempting to troll, then, n’est pas? And, thank you, I have quite a good life. That being said, I’ll leave the soldier hate to you liberals, you do quite a good job of it.

          • Rhiannon Schaefer

    So google ruined Easter for you guys, huh? I can almost feel the heat of your religious persecution from here. Someone better call Jesus Christ: Attorney at Law and sue google for not catering to christianity every second of the day.

  • Neal Jones

    The comments on that article are hilarious.. When you look back at the “Google Doodle’s” it appears they don’t celebrate ANY religious holiday.. but because this is a Christian holiday, it is somehow especially offensive.

    http://www.google.com/doodles/

    • Rhiannon Schaefer

      Thank you for summing that up.

  • Estelle

    I guess Google thinks Cesar Chavez is more important than the most pivotal Christian holiday of the year…

  • JD

    Last time I checked, Easter is not a federal holiday. There are millions of Americans who do not celebrate Easter (Passover, anyone?), so why should Google feel obligated to cater to those that do?

    “I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. They are so unlike your Christ.” –Gandhi

  • mldi

    I am absolutely amazed at how people foam at the mouth over a Doodle. Lighten up. Nobody’s being persecuted here. I grew up in a very religious home but it’s because of the absolute dominance of self-victimizing nut cases that I stopped practicing.

    Unreal.

    • Max Black

      You stopped believing because you have contempt for God and society. Now one stops believing in God because of how “other” people act. Stop lying to yourself and others.

      • mldi

        I said “practicing”. A nut is a nut, and this behavior is lunacy. Believe it or not, your actions have an effect on others, and you’ve only confirmed my past experiences.

        The fact remains: making a doodle into an accusation of persecution is insane.

        • Max Black

          I haven’t seen anyone use the word “persecution” other than you. YOU are projecting.

          • mldi

            Ugh, except half the responses to the Doodle. Seriously.

  • Ron Scheurer

    Compare: What did Jesus, Moses, and Allah do for the farm workers? What did Chavez do for the farm workers? Why refer to the first three as left-wing socialists? Can it be denied that most religions are not socialistic? How many people world wide have been killed in the names of Jesus, Moses, and Allah? What is the statistic for Chavez?

    Did any of these four hard boil eggs and stage egg rolling contests? Not likely. And what do Easter bunnies have to do with some imagined Resurrection of Jesus?

    • Rhiannon Schaefer

      I can help with the last part. See, the bunnies and eggs are actually leftovers from the pagan religion that Easter is covering up, Ishtar. It was a fertility holiday, thus… bunnies and eggs!

      • Brian

        Ostara, also called Eostre, not Ishtar.

        • Rhiannon Schaefer

          I was always told Ishtar, but I’ll take your word for it. :)

          • Brian

            Common misconception. Ishtar is from the same area as Jesus, which I think is where the confusion comes from. Ostara is Germanic/Saxon, like most Christmas traditions.

  • usafveteran

    I realize those who have made significant accomplishments to our society should be recognized but this is ridiculous and a slap in the face! I’m using Bing from now on…at least they’ve got Easter eggs on their site!

    • weirdmoment

      A slap in the face to who? Muslims? If you’re insinuating that Christians would have been happier seeing eggs and a bunny to remind them of Jesus, you need to revisit your Christian principles. I mean seriously, talk to your priest.

  • http://twitter.com/Sunnisong Melody

    Well, duh. The founders of Google are JEWISH! It’s not surprising that Google has never acknowledged Easter. At least they don’t put on bunnies. ; ) No wonder Christians (and I am one, by the way) have a reputation for being intolerant. : (

    Jesus IS Lord we don’t need a picture on Google to prove it. All Christians should know to keep our eyes on Jesus and nothing else. Don’t worry about what Google uses as a picture they wouldn’t have had one good enough to Glorify The King of Kings anyway!
    I love You Lord Jesus You are all that matters and I pray for all reading this to know Your powerful name and to turn to You and know You <3

    Why do American Christians want the cultural traditions of our Nation observed?

Frankly I’m sick and tired of Zionist Jew/Communist type historical revisionists, that hate Jesus Christ and Christian’s guts, denigrating my European/Christian heritage. Move to China, Russia, or Saudi Arabia if you’re so tired of America’s freedom. You do your thing and I’ll do mine.

    • http://twitter.com/JamesPheonix James

      America is supposedly a Christian nation, yet there is not one mention of Jesus in its founding document, the constitution. America isn’t a Christian country and it never will be. Put your big boy pants on and get over it. Or, take your own advice and leave.

      Words from our founding fathers:

      “Lighthouses are more helpful than churches.”–Benjamin Franklin

      “The way to see by faith is to shut the eye of reason.”–Benjamin Franklin

      “Christianity is the most perverted system that ever shone on a man.”–Thomas Jefferson

      “Who does not see that the same authority which can establish
      Christianity, in exclusion of all other religions, may establish with
      the same ease any particular sect of Christians, in exclusion of all
      other sects?” -James Madison

      • fredkelly

        The accurate quote:

        “Those who live by mystery & charlatanerie, fearing you would render them useless by simplifying the Christian philosophy — the most sublime and benevolent, but most perverted system that ever shone on man – endeavored to crush your well-earned & well-deserved fame.”
        -Thomas Jefferson

        Jefferson is saying that Christianity is “sublime and benevolent”. And that Christianity is often “perverted”, as in ‘perverted by some mischievous people (misunderstood or misused)’.

        But hey, what’s historical accuracy when there’s an agenda to push.

        • turk

          Jefferson wrote put out a Bible with the mystical parts, including the immaculate conception, cut out. It’s known as the Jeffersonian Bible. Pretty strange behavior for a “Christian”, isn’t it?

          Jefferson was also saying that the institution of Christianity was “the most perverted system that ever shone on man”, which wasn’t difficult for him because he was not a Christian, which runs counter to the assertion our friend Terry Rumple made.

            You do know that jumping off of a plane is fairly simple. Some are only 6 feet or so off the ground. Oh, wait, you were too stupid to write jump out of a plane. Dumbass.

            And I’m still not whining. You haven’t even been able to prove that. You are a pathetic little sort. I should feel bad for picking on you, but nahhhh.

            “And I’m still not whining” – The denial is quite evident.

            I love reading your posts, they’re like one of those old “Just Say No To Crack” ads.

          • weirdmoment

            Thanks unfortunately the feelings aren’t mutual.

          • jasamc

            I don’t doubt. My posts make sense, so you wouldn’t feel that way. Your posts are Kafkaesque. The verbal equivalent of looking at Munch’s “The Scream” while doing acid, one would imagine.

          • weirdmoment

            You’re trying really hard to troll but it’s not working out well. Good job though.

          • jasamc

            Considering that I’m not actually trolling, attempted or otherwise, I’d say you don’t know what the hell you’re talking about. But you’re a liberal, so that would be repeating myself.

          • weirdmoment

            Keep trolling.

    They have that Caesar Chaves doodle yesterday. Google could of switch it for Easter today. They decided not to. Unfortunately switching to Bing doesn’t make any difference, because Microsoft is a leftist corporation also. Also Bing has bunch of eggs which has nothing to do with Jesus resurrection. We kind of stuck between two left search engines. Left always celebrates left leaders, sometimes even mass murderers like Mao and Che, and dictators like Hugo Chaves and Castro. Nothing new.

      Microsoft is a leftist corporation? A leftist corporation? bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

      • silverzone

        Nothing shows intelligence more than “bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha”. What’s your point?

        • http://twitter.com/JamesPheonix James

          My point? If you think Microsoft is a leftist corporation you are far removed from reality. In fact, you are so far removed from reality that all logic and reason must escape your limited grasp. Hence my laughter….

          • silverzone

            You think you can win an argument by childish “bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha” and insults?
            Do tell where in my post I was wrong. If you think that Microsoft leans to the right or even to the center give an example please.

          • Benny King

            Uh, MS was all for monopolizing markets, gutting regulations to make more profit, and is one of the wealthiest corporations in the world… What in the hell is your evidence that MS is a “leftist corporation”?

          • http://twitter.com/JamesPheonix James

            Benny, I don’t think Phillip has any idea what left and right mean, as far as politics and economics are concerned.

          • silverzone

            By saying that Microsoft is wealthiest corporation in the world doesn’t prove anything. By your definition all Hollywood should be “right wingers”, which they are not. Google should be there also. There is as a lot of rich individuals and companies that far to the left. Every left dictator in the world is a billionaire. Barack Obama is a millionaire. Every left wing politician is a wealthy for some reason making just $150,000.
            Evidence? MSNBC – Microsoft has 50% share of the MSNBC, which nobody in the world will call conservative or even moderate cable channel.

      You can also stop watching any movies made with liberals involved…which pretty much leaves you with Kirk Cameron’s “Left Behind” series. Enjoy!!

      • silverzone

        I don’t watch movies.

        • turk

          Good thing, because it could interrupt your Fox News viewing.

    I think it honorable that google is honoring this man’s birthday. Just because it is Easter and Christianity is a major religion, does not mean that it over rules everything else. it’s not all about the religions that have the most power, think about the participants of Buddhism, pagan views or those who are atheists. we dont see them complaining, and I would find it extremely rude if google used most/all Christian based doodles as these people are suggesting. So all of those who disagree with their decision need to rethink what they see as the most important: being respectable to others religions or thinking selfishly on their own accord. way to follow in the footsteps of Jesus you guys, way to go.

    • ernst1776

      You think you sound thoughtful and reasonable but you don’t.

      • StallChaser

        …coming from someone flipping out over Google not using the doodle he wanted.

  • ChiTown Princess

    I didn’t know who Cesar Chavez was until today, but Google could have have the Easter doodle, not everybody isn’t gonna celebrate this man would-have-been birthday!

  • Mark Preston

    Newsflash:

    Not everyone in the world is Christian.

    Get over it.

  • Kathy Warriorpooflinger

    At least there’s evidence that Cesar Chavez was real.

  • Vera

    it’s because the world does not know HIM, and doesn’t accept HIM.. but for those of us who do, we celebrate eternal and everlasting life in heaven forever! Google can put whom ever they like on their page.. it doesn’t have anything to do with who I am or what Easter means to me… JUST SAYING!

  • darf

    If google was attempting to be truly authenthic it would honor the pagan gods which brought us this holiday, not jesus.

  • mambobananapatch

    Poor oppressed Christians! Life is so hard.

    • StallChaser

      Oh, just you wait. One day, Google won’t give you the doodle you wanted or were expecting. You will have waited months in anticipation for their Tetris doodle, and it’ll be some 17th century artist you’ve never heard of. You’ll just be left there to pick up the pieces, wondering what happened. Years later, maybe… MAYBE… you’ll be able to retell the story without breaking down into tears.

      I know I still can’t.

      You will never understand their persecution.
