Google's Cesar Chavez Logo Insults Christians On Easter

Mar 31, 2013 • 10:38 am | comments (221) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Logos
 

Today is one of the most celebrated days of the year for Christians, Easter Sunday. And while search engines like Bing and Ask.com have special themes up for Easter, Google has a logo for the birthday of Cesar Chavez.

Don't get me wrong, Cesar Chavez is a remarkable and honorable person to remember. But if you saw the number of complaints in the Google Web Search Forums now, you'd scratch your head.

Google's Cesar Chavez Logo

Here are some of the hundreds of complaints:

Why not have bunnies and eggs decorating the Google search, at least. I know you'd never have a Jesus decoration on the search page. But Cesar Chavez? WHY? On Easter of all days.

Cesar Chavez on google on Easter morning, google sucks, I am looking for a new browser.....people what other engines can I use.?

Get some basic respect, Google. Posting a picture of Chevez on Easter makes me feel uncomfortable and creates a "hostile web environment". Please replace Chevez with an Easter-theme.

Why did you take Easter Away?

Now those are just a few of the comments and the ones that are PG-13. Some of them are pretty out there and I rather not quote them here. You can read them yourself in the Google Web Search Forums.

So who was Cesar Chavez? Cesar Chavez was an American farm worker, labor leader and civil rights activist, who, with Dolores Huerta, co-founded the National Farm Workers Association. He was born today 86 years ago and died on April 23, 1993.

Now if you are really upset with Google over not having an easter logo you can either complain in the Google Web Search Forums or in the no Easter logo at Google again post where there are hundreds of comments or switch to a new search engine.

Yahoo doesn't have any logo but Bing and Ask.com do. Note, Ask.com uses Google for their ads, so you may want to stick with Bing if you do not want Google to make any money from you. Dogpile is an other option but they are an aggregator of search results.

So are you upset with Google over this logo or lack there of?

I love the Cesar Chavez google logo today. This article seems to be stoking the outrage of the Christians who don't realize that millions of us have given up on their brand of spirituality, or were never Christians to begin with.

Dear Christians, Google is a private company that can do what it wants. There's no law saying they have to celebrate Easter. You are free to take your business elsewhere. Also get over yourselves and stop acting childish because a company isn't showing you special privilege. Thank you.

For Chavez, social reform was an extension of the Christian’s battle against sin. Without peace of spirit and purity of heart, there was little point in pursuing justice. Collective bargaining, just wages, shorter workdays: for Chavez none of these made sense outside the fact of his risen Lord.

Seriously people? We should be thanking Google for not buying into the commercialism that is Easter. The fact that they are demonized for not shying away from bunnies and eggs, which somehow makes Christians more comfortable than a champion for human liberty, is so fucked up. It's a perfect reflection of the state of religion today...consumerism.

Hon, "Christians" are not upset. It's people who wanted an Easter theme that are upset. Google would never create a Christian theme but rather a generic Easter theme. Hon, you really shouldn't assume and accuse where there are no accusations to be made.

Dear Anti-Christian hatermongers, Since Google is a private company, I will boycott them and tell everyone I know to boycott them. There is no law that says they have to celebrate Easter, but it is a bad business practice to needllessly alienate one third of the world. Also anti-Christian haters, get over yourselves and stop acting so classless and childish. We know you hate Christianity but even hiding it for one day is asking too much of you intolerant hypocrites. We know you big mouths would never insult Islam, you gutless cowards. Thank you.

I think this is hilarious . So many Christians complaining because Google chose to highlght a man who helped thousands through his Christian beliefs and not Easter eggs and bunnies. Many are threatening to leave Google and move to other search engines who are showing logos with bunnies and Easter eggs because their Christian beliefs have been offended. After all - We all know Christianity is about...helping...others.. wait a second.. Where does the Easter Bunny come in to Christianity again?

This would be true, Seeker, if Google was "neutral." However, they aren't. They are a publicly traded company -- accountable to shareholders -- and also receive tax breaks from the state and federal governments. Google has a reputation that they are building in which they will celebrate/advertise Leftist figures and even a silly "holiday" created recently by a rapist (Kwanzaa) but refuse to acknowledge ideology or faith that they don't want to "advertise." They hide their own biases through silly "anti-bullying" campaigns that are, ironically, bullying anyone who doesn't uphold their views or beliefs. Yes, we are free to take our searches elsewhere. However, Google receives TAX INCENTIVES from the state that I live in (California) and from Federal Government. Oddly enough, Liberals constantly whine about the taxation of churches yet have no problem with Big Media companies receiving massive tax breaks while simultaneously pushing a "new dogma" that adheres to the push of homosexuality, abortion, radical environmentalism and even legislative attacks on the First Amendment's guarantee of religious freedom. If you ever speak with Google's decision makers, you'll find that they wear their radical views on their sleeves and are undoubtedly in-the-pocket of Liberal politicians. I live in Palo Alto (where most of them also live) and they wear their Liberalism on their sleeves as a badge of honor. I can't count the times that the streets of Palo Alto were closed down so that politicians (like Barack Obama) could hold fundraisers in the homes of Google execs.

Yeah, Bladwalker, I suppose that you want everyone to "tolerate" your views and brand of morality too. Perhaps the 2.5 BILLION Christians (*of all sects, denominations and non-affiliations) should treat atheists the way that you treat them? That would be hilarious, wouldn't it?

Hate on Christians or "religious people" all you want, it doesn’t bother me a bit. That’s what is beautiful about this great country, your opinion is yours and you’re free to share it. However, the root of this issue is that Google acknowledges some of the most popular AND some of the most obscure religious holidays out there with art on their home page. However, they tend to ignore Christian religious events. Why? I’m not sure. There is a climate of hate toward Christians among large and/or media affiliated groups, largely as a result of crazy extremist nut jobs making us look like terrible people. Some of you call us intolerant bigots, yet, if someone disagrees with you — particularly if they are a "Christian" — they are automatically a horrible person. Hmm, isn’t that the definition of bigotry? Yeah, yep I think it is. Again, there are indeed extreme, radical, intolerant, ignorant people associated with the Christian faith, but I promise you, that is not who we are. It’s an unfortunate perception that keeps us all from living happily, and tolerantly, together in this great nation. Anyway, I digress. The point is, yes, Google is 100% free to do whatever the heck it wants, but as a function of their usual treatment of religious holidays, it is quite obviously a little slap in the face towards those of Christian faith. Sure, it’s an incredibly trivial and inconsequential matter, but still unnecessary.

I'm Christian and I don't want to push my beliefs on anyone. So, I don't expect Google to pick one religion's holidays over another. It makes sense that they would not do religious holidays. Cheers to Google for celebrating a HERO for EVERYONE - Cesar Chavez.

03/31/2013 05:19 pm

I dunno, It seems like Google is making a statement without making a statement. They are saying that Easter is apparently not a significant holiday and they are posting a birthday of a man most people probably know very little about or have very little knowledge of his birthday if that. They chose to highlight his birthday even though they know a vast majority of the USA celebrates Easter as a holiday and counts it as an important day. It is no different than a big cancel symbol over the an Easter logo. I can't help but feel excluded or pushed aside. I am sure it feels like a slap in the face to a very large majority of the USA. All I can say is way to go Google, someone was really thinking hard on this one. lol

I was insulted at first as a Roman Catholic, but upon reading his bio, he was also a Roman Catholic and his work promoted community service. Outside of a Google doodle with Jesus Christ (which would never be posted), this is probably the next best image, I think, rather than the over commercialized or generic eggs and candy.

How very christian of you to degrade and talk down on someone else's views. Be they cosmically accurate or not, you Christians are all the same. It's always fine and dandy when you're getting your way, but when one little thing you 'don't like' comes up, it's time to let the world know about it. How about channeling your unnecessary irrational logic into something productive, like researching the inadequacies and illogical data represented in your holy book. Good day sir, and enjoy your very important day of the year for the biggest falsity and scam ever believed by anyone with a valid working consciousness.

As a Christian training to be a pastor I have to admit that I think it's a bit frustrating to see google put Chavez's face up, instead of an Easter theme. However, it's not like bing went out of their way to identify Jesus as the reason for Easter. All they did was post a picture of a conglomeration of eggs. People are flocking to bing, but they are just as ignorant as google, from a Christian's perspective. Christians need to stop complaining about stupid stuff- such as google doodles. This is why people don't take us seriously. Who cares about what google does. We, as Christians, are here to spread the good news of Jesus Christ. We've missed the point of Easter by complaining about such foolish things as google doodles.

There is nothing Christian about a bunny that lays eggs. There is something "Christian" in a man who led his life after that of Jesus Christ and who prayed to God with every meal and thanked the Lord for the strength to help bring a voice to His children. The bunny never prayed. They bunny never even laid a real egg - the bunny is a liar and an anathema to the nature of God's things. YOU who protect the bunny must really be protecting the greatest anathema of all for it is The DEVIL that you worship and pretend to be Christians. For SHAME!!! on you for trying to dupe the humble, poor witted Christians. FOR SHAME!!!! For placing the liar bunny and the king of liars the devil before God.... Brine, brimstone, you know the rest. Okay, go get a life and start living life. I think God would prefer you spending your time with family than sweating silly things. Go on now, go.

All in all, Google AT LEAST could have been respectful and used its powers to wish everyone a happy easter rather than happy birthday caesar chavez.. Christmas, Halloween, and Valentines Day are mostly celebrated, Christian or not. Nonbelievers do it for fun. Same with Easter, some people don't know who God is and celebrate these anyways. It would've been nice, Google's Doodles always make me smile. Maybe next year, Google.

You know, many times, these Google Doodles are meant to educate. I've learned quite a lot from the various Doodles and linked articles since they began doing them. Everyone knows what Easter is about. Not many know what Kwanzaa is about, or Cesar Chavez, etc. Also, Chavez was an extremely Christian person in every way. He oozed out Christian values. I don't see why Christians would be upset in honoring him over Eggs and Bunnies, which are just stolen relics from the Pagans fertility festivals and have NOTHING to do with Christianity. Are you THAT insecure in your religion? It just so happens that Easter and Chavez's birthday fell on the same day this year. They won't next year, and I'm sure there will be an Easter Doodle, with eggs and bunnies and not a shred of Jesus or his teachings. Are you really THAT insecure in your religion?

How is it a slap in the face? Is the Google logo a picture of Chavez taking a dump on an Easter bunny-holding Jesus? No. It's a picture honoring a (Christian) guy who put his life on the line and died calling attention to the plight of the poor and disenfranchised. ...Hmm, now why does that story sound so familiar again?

Everyone except the people for which this article exists. Unless the author is just creating strawmen as well. But you're right I shouldn't say "Christians," it's too broad a brush. It doesn't change the fact that people offended by Google not putting a bunny on their page are completely silly. The "privilege" part comes from the fact that there are people who literally demand that their holiday must be recognized by a company that isn't really a religious entity.

"Can't we just all get along?" For many people, holidays like Easter are more "national" or "international" holidays than "religious" holidays. EVERYONE knows Easter's a holiday, and MANY non-Christians take part in the non-religious activities associated with the holiday (and they're happy to take the associated vacation day(s)/benefits). There are Doodles for many holidays, birthdays, inventions, authors, performers, and who-knows-what-else that mean absolutely nothing to A LOT of people, so users are used to seeing Doodles that very often don't have "meaning" to them, but what do we see on Easter? No indication that it's even a holiday (religious or non-religious) - no eggs, no baskets, no flowers, and no bunnies - N-O-T-H-I-N-G. Rather than pretend these holidays don't exist, why not highlight Chanukah, Passover, Diwali, Kwanzaa, Easter, Christmas, and other similar holidays on "their" days? In trying soooo hard to not offend the hyper-sensitve minority who take offense to EVERYTHING, Google has effectively offended and insulted many more people.

Why not Jesus? Regardless of your religious beliefs about him (or lack thereof), he was a historical figure that brought a message of love and peace to the sick and the poor and inspired BILLIONS of people to do the same. What other historical figure in history has done that? Not Cesar Chavez. It's like honoring a Republican Congressman on Lincoln's birthday instead of Lincoln himself, and saying "Well, at least they are honoring another Republican."

"Do no evil"? Really?

hasn't google honored the dalai lama on his birthday? i guess religion is ok with google as long as it's buddhism, or judaism, islam, or paganism, or anything other than christianity. (i hear they backpedaled and offered a jewish themed doodle for hannukah one year, but only if you searched for a hannukah-related term). they honored ancient egyptian pagan gods such as amun ra, ra horakhty, and ptah (abu simbel temples, 10-22-12). or how about the ancient chinese moon festival (9-30-12)? if you celebrate the birthday of the ancient persian/muslim scholar al-biruni, google's with you on that (9-04-12). are they trying to be counter-culture or are they just way too cool to even mention christianity? this is clearly an example of reverse discrimination! check it out for yourself at the google doodle museum: http://www.google.com/doodles/finder

You dehumanized them with beatings and exquisite torture, gouged out their eyes, slit their tongues, stretched, crushed, or broke their limbs, tore off their breasts if they were a woman, crushed their scrotums if they were men, imprisoned them, stabbed them, disemboweled them, hung them, burnt them alive.

OK. The historical Person known as Jesus by christians has been so much more influential for good in the world than a social reformer that comes later, regardless of how much good the latter has done. So much good has been done in the name of this Servant Rabbi (Isaiah 53, Psalm 22); One who has been so misunderstood not only by those who despise Him, but by those who claim to belong to Him; often He is seen as reforming lives, not transforming lives. Not all those who claim to be followers of the Christ/Messiah are truly His followers. He said that much. Much has been done ostensibly in His name, by those who have no knowledge of Who He is, and have no relationship with Him. He said many religious ones will one day stand before Him and claim to belong to Him, and He will say to them, "I never had relationship with you; go away into torment." That is the destiny of the "religious" who are not truly in relationship with the One Who shows compassion to people who know how flawed the are and will admit it to Him, to themselves and to others. I offer a quote by Pastor and theologian Alistair Begg: "The Church is a community of the crippled and the broken, and the harmed and the helpless." Now is the time to put aside arrogance and bigotry; 2,000 years ago, Messiah Yeshua, the humble Rabbi condescended to be incarnated, came to restore the connection to His Father, living as one of us, and offering His Life at Passover, and rose on the Jewish Holy Day of Yom HaBikkurim, Firstfruits ( http://adat.org/archives/162 ) (NOT EASTER, the pagan fertility rite). The ones Jesus had the most opposition from were not Atheists, but religious misogynistic ethno-bigots who thought they were qualitatively better than others, and forgot the ancient V'ahavta... (http://towardblog.wordpress.com/2005/05/09/respecting-jewish-tradition-shema-vahavta/) ...to "love God and love others" (without picking and choosing). Atheist or Disciple? I offer; C.S. Lewis - Mere Christianity; Josh McDowell - Evidence that Demands a Verdict; Lee Strobel - The Case for Christ; all these were formerly Atheists and men who determined that they would disprove the Sacred Scriptures. What an insurmountable task!

Remember the "bait and switch" of the religious crowd that led to Yeshua driving the hypocritical scam artists out of the Temple (which by the way was in the court of the Gentiles, which meant that the Gentiles were shoved out of worship by the ethno-bigots, who forgot that Father Avraham was promised and commissioned to be a "Light to the Gentiles" of the God of Israel).

Or as the song says..."He can't even run his own life; I'll be damned if he'll run mine." The perfect song for an ooey-gooey religiously so-called christian "friend" of mind.

Sardonic wit. Hooray! Too many "christians" are so sterile and boring. "touch not, taste not!" (That was written by the Apostle Paul castigating the legalistic bigots of his day.)

When you say "atheist losers", do you realize that YOU are the reason that the church loses the ones that you despise, that Jesus would have had dinner plans with, to share a few glasses of (oh, my!) WINE? OH, gooness, gwacious! Go back to the Script. Read how it all plays out. You might be shocked!

...Anyone who gets offended by google not using an easter logo is completely full of themselves... Then again, about 95% of all religious people I know are indeed completely full of themselves. If you want to celebrate Jesus on the day, go for it, its your choice (Its not like you don't do it every Sunday and in some cases Wednesday anyway!). Granted I do agree that if they are not going to show material from one religion, Christianity in this case, then they shouldn't show any from any other religion either. However that still shouldn't merit any outrage. Just like not seeing a picture of Jesus may offend you, seeing one may offend another. What I think it boils down to is this. People are bored, easily offended, and drama-loving and simply have nothing better to do than bitch. In short, get over it.

Good lord. This disgust me. Christian really need to grow up. How is this behavior Christ like in the least. Your offended by Google art. Grow up & get a life. Dear lord. This is sad. I am an open minded christian myself. Jesus warned against behavior like this. This is extremely ignorant of all of you. Please wise up before you do further damage to the reputation of Jesus Christ.

He is worthy of everyday. It saddens me that you cannot see that this is very insignificant in the grand scheme of things. Grow up. It's Google art for Goodness sake. Are you a shareholder or perhaps a board member for Google. Then great just shut up because your ignorance is proof of your blindness.

2.2 billion people who claim to be Christians are ignorant fools. I am a christian & this is stupid.

Mark Yates

Correct

Mark Yates

05/31/2013 07:10 am

Shut up now. You have no clue what you are talking about you self righteous pious ass. I am a christian myself & this angers me. How are your words suppose to be a light for Jesus Christ & plant a seed of love & kindness for anyone. Are you sure you are saved. Cause I can't help but to question it. I swear sometimes I truly believe there will be far more deacons & pastors going to hell than there ever will be proclaimed atheists. They identify themselves with free thinking & reason because you have made a mockery of my faith.

Mark Yates

05/31/2013 07:11 am

You fail to see how ignorant you are. Gid himself embraces free thought. Evolution is real but yet I'm sure that will ruffle some feathers. Sad really. Is this what we have become. I refuse to be associated with people like this.

As a Christian who runs his own business I do agree with the very last sentence of your comment.

Mark Yates

05/31/2013 07:17 am

Too bad it is not indicative of biblical teaching. Sounds more like the voice of uneducated blind & ignorant rednecks to me.

Mark Yates

05/31/2013 07:19 am

This is classic!

Mark Yates

05/31/2013 07:34 am

Yes we should. The sad thing is it would not shock me if people were arguing here on this comments board during a sincere pastors message on humility. Sad man. I will say this. Jesus is worth every moment of my life 10 * over. I do hope you can look over there ignorance & see Jesus for who he truly is. They are blind & ignorant. God loves you man. You hit the nail on the head. I am sorry for all this junk. Please know the real nature of God is quite opposite to this bus.

Accepting Easter Eggs and complaining about a more historically signification image... That is what I'm getting from this. It was Chavez birthday on march 31, they have 1 banner up a day, and most of the world is not Christian and most of the world is not American and most of the world understands Christian Americans complain a lot. So despite whatever reasoning you may tell yourself, please be more considerate before you demand consideration from others.

I'd love, LOVE, to see any Pagan holidays celebrated on a Google Logo.

06/20/2013 01:32 pm

Revered? Yes. Historical? Not really. Feel free to show any proof (besides the bible you're thumping) which proves that the Jesus of the bible ever actually existed as a physical person. If you're honest, you'll admit that you don't have any.

Bladewalker56

Feel free to prove that Jesus did anything at all, but before you can do that, you'll need to prove that he actually existed.

I have to side with Google. Their search engine is the one I found the most useful. What was so important that on Easter Sunday, people had to take the time out of this day for family togetherness, church services, special dinners, and remembering what Jesus teaches, that they had to take more time to complain for lack of a doodle. Did the Google doodlers have something for Good Friday? Does Google make a doodle for Christmas? How about using the star of David, how about a crescent moon, etc.? Heck, I did a Google search about this topic and Google wasn't afraid to post it's own criticisms. Does anyone know if they put "Happy Easter" in the text at the bottom of the page (probably not)? My life doesn't revolve around Google's doodles and I don't need Google to remind me about my faith. Oh, if they did put a bunny on the page, what that have meet "their obligation"? Would every person in the world even know a bunny stands for Easter? I think Google can just continue to help people like me that need an intuitive search engine (along with other products) and if they want to post a doodle, no matter what the topic is, they can do so without fear I will dump them.

WTF is some guy whose last name is SCHWARTZ giving out information about what insults Christians? That is as stupid as a Christian Televangelist going on and on trying to explain the old testament (the book of the Jews) to Christians. Thanks but you can keep your phony indignation, Barry. ALSO, Google created the graphic because of what day it was, to celebrate that and if that pisses off someone who has NOTHING TO DO WITH IT BUT WHINE about stuff that doesn't concern them, then let them be pissed off. Who cares?

Jason Rogers

09/28/2013 10:05 pm

Right? Isn't Easter the bastard holiday (no pun intended) of a Pagan celebration of fertility and renewal anyway? And why would anyone feel so entitled to expect that the rest of the world should bend toward their own world views? Perhaps they should "Google" the actual definition of the word google.

jennaloo

11/05/2013 11:21 pm

Wait, what?? Seriously? If your response to this is "who cares", then who cares if a Schwartz is talking about this?! He can write an informational article. He never says how he feels about it. And by the way, although Christian televangelists are ridiculous, the Old Testament is a very important part of the Christian religion as well. So before you get all worked up and go crazy with your caps lock, educate yourself, or go take a Klonopin or something.

Okay, I know this comment is way too old to be replying, but seriously? Is everyone on this page retarded? In fact, the majority of the world population are, actually, indeed, seriously, Christian.

Does anyone really pay any attention to or care about the stupid logos that pop up on on one's google screen every day? If so perhaps they need to get a hobby and quit looking for things they can purposely talk themselves into being offended by.
