      Nope not only do businesses have every right to be secular but most Americans don't know who Cesar Chavez is and should. Not to mention that Easter is a co-opted holiday stolen from pagans so really we should have Ishtar or Gaia up there if anyone.

          It's an interesting choice that annoys me for religious reasons.  It does not surprise me though.  Had Google selected Jesus or something Christian, it would have been criticized, so this was really not a situation where Google could win.

            Google did win. The nonsense spouted by the religious right in disgust and dismay to Googles choice shows they are simply far removed from reality and incredibly arrogant in their zealotry.

            People everywhere are laughing hysterically at them.

              It's interesting that so many call it the "religious right."  There are plenty of democrats who are religious too, and many of them were not thrilled with Google.  This may just have more to do with religion than politics.

    Nope. I can find more important things to be bothered about.

    I was wondering who that Google Guy was.

    No.  They get tp honor whomever they wish.  If they start marking holy days as a matter of course, then they will be left with no days to do anything else.  Every day is a holy day for someone.

    Does not bother me in the least -- I think it was a fitting choice. I think Jesus would have approved.

    I don't get why people are so upset about it.  I've come to the conclusion that some feel that everything has to be about religion and the US.  So, would they prefer the pagan (rural, country-like) representation of a fertile goddess symbolized as a cute bunny rabbit? 

    Google has only done one Easter doodle, back in 2000.

    I thought it was a creepy picture,  I agree it really was more to do with religion than politics.
    Personally I almost preferred him to some picture of the Easter Bunny..

      Wasn't Cesar Chavez a socialist?

        So that bars him from being a great American! Heck, there are big lumps of America that are socialist!

        No, he wasn't.

        According to my understanding, he promoted human rights and, like Gandhi, used the tactics of non-violence to try and achieve his ends.

        This seems a totally admirable cause, however one would define it in political terms.

    I prefer to honor good people versus whatever religious symbol eggs and bunnies represent.
