Why are the new conservative Christians upset at Google vs Bing on Easter Sunday

    Why are the new conservative Christians upset at Google vs Bing on Easter Sunday?

    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)?

    Honestly, I'm a little disappointed and upset with google. Cesar Chavez? On Easter Sunday? Bing, I'm happier with because they at least have a symbol of Easter on their page. It's more respectful.

      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.

    Please don't lump all conservative Christians together.

      This was distinct in the conservative Christians who are blowing up Twitter this morning regarding Google vs Bing. Thank you for your answer.

    I don't know. Perhaps they should just get a grip and understand that the World does not revolve around their sensibilities.

    I'm baffled to be honest. A man who spent his life fighting for the poor using non-violent means and dying penniless...that's the bio for both Jesus and Chavez. How can't Chavez's example of trying to match the inspiration and sacrifice of Jesus be seen as a fitting tribute.

    My only possible explanation is that the vast majority of people complaining don't actually know anything about Chavez other than that he generally gets labelled as a leftist, thereby making him evil or some other such nonsense.

    Not to mention the symbolism of the image: clean white shirt, symmetric elements forming a cross, agriculture rows like rays of heaven or a halo, etc. For Christians to see more appropriate symbolism in a picture of eggs than they do in the picture of Chavez says a lot (and none of it good).

      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.
