Conservative Christians are perfectly happy with dyed eggs laid by a mythological bunny featured on Bing, but are angry at Google for featuring civil rights / labor activist Cesar Chavez's 86th birthday. Do you think what Chavez lived is further away from Jesus message than celebrating Ishtar (Easter) and a crucifix (torture and murder device)?

junkseller, thank you for your well thought out and dynamic answer!
I'm with you. It's a great answer. I'm a Christian and I'm not offended by seeing Chavez there at all. After all, I don't need Google to remind me what I'm celebrating or my beliefs and Chavez was a great man who sacrificed to help many.
Disappearinghead, thank you for your answer.
This was distinct in the conservative Christians who are blowing up Twitter this morning regarding Google vs Bing. Thank you for your answer.
Thank you for your answer.
Why is it "disrespectful" to show a picture of Chavez on Easter or anyone else for that matter? Why would anyone care?
Because they have creative decorations for the Jewish holiday, yet they cannot help us celebrate? Also Chavez is part of the unions, I'm shocked they are even marking his birthday. Why would anyone care about your beliefs? Because they are special.
Since google is a private company, they can do whatever they want. It wouldn't be offensive if they didn't decorate at all, so I can't see why this is. If they claimed to be a christian company, then I could understand the concern.
Yes, they can do whatever they want. Doesn't mean I'm happy about it. I thought they were more diverse than that.
