Apparently Google likes holidays - as long as they aren't Christian

I pointed out the other day that Google found it OK to do something for "World Water Day" but ignored Easter Sunday.

They've done it again.

Today, Google has changed their logo to honor the birth of Vincent Van Gogh.

Just damn.

How can that be when Google had Christmas images?

My bad, they do "happy holidays".


So what?

Do they do Jewish holidays? No.
Do they do Muslim holidays? No.

They did Easter by showing eggs. Not the resurrection, but eggs. Not a cross, but eggs.

Mole hill, meet mountain.

I looked over the years Google had listed and they missed Easter quite a bit, but they also did more fun logo things 1 year then only a few the next. I don't think its a conspiracy, they havent done Kwanzaa, boxing day (that I could see) any majoy Jewish Holidays, Veterans Day, etc. One thing is for sure, they have always done Earth Day. Who cares really though, eventually someone will come along and bury them and the whole Google logo conspiracy will be just a distant memory.

Love your blog but I have to disagree with you on this one. As a longtime Christian, I not only don't care whether Google changes their logo for Easter but am glad that they don't. Why would they? Is Google a Christian company? I would just as soon NOT have non-Christians secularize Christian holidays.

"Just damn."

This REALLY cracks me up...
thanks for the smile...

I mean, where will you find oppression next?
There ought to be a law, I tell ya...
private businesses MUST endorse Christian holidays with silly logos.

The problem with fundementalist Christians is that they think the world revolve's around them.They wonder why some folk don't like them, well maybe its because they are always tryng to ram their faith down everybodys throat.They show no respect of the beliefs of others and are at times aggressive in their condemnations of everyone who's not a "god fearing bible thumping neocon Bush loving better than everyone else christian"...yet when someone fires back, they cry religious persecution. Kinda like a bully who runs to the teacher when someone gets fed up and pushes back.They cry how they are trashed by the media...frankly they dont need the liberal media to make them look like condesending self rightous hypocrites...they do a good job of it themselves. Really, just watch TBN or the 700 club and the plastic superficiality of these peeps comes shining through...remember, Theres a big difference between kneeling down and bending over.
Most fundies are against abortions yet support the war in Iraq. What about the children our bombs have killed? The pregnant women...collateral damage...Oh, It's ok if an American bomb kills them..its nessecary....Thats called Moral Relavitism, Situational Ethics
