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.
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).
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.

How do conservative Christians rationalize helping the poor get healthcare?Instructed by Christ to feed the poor, care for widows and orphans, give your cloak to one without one, where is the instruction to stop widespread, affordable care for the sick?

With this years batch of Republican Campaign attack ads one thing has become apparent to me. If Jesus came back and ran for the office of President of the United States, not one Right Wing Christian Conservative would vote for him. Everything I have ever heard about Jesus points to the fact that he...

Palestinians are hoping to get their own state recognised by the UN. The only country with veto power that has said that they would use it is US. Even though Obama and Bush before both stated that they would back a state bid by Palestine. So why this double standard?

Most conservative Christians will tell you that there can be no sin in heaven. Jesus died for our sins, and the only way those sins can be forgiven is if we accept this "free gift" offered. Otherwise, we burn in hell. However, there are two problems with this view. ...
