Ed Driscol notes that Google has a predictable manner of observing Easter. Ironic, since whatever else you could say about Cesar Chavez he was a devout Catholic:
While two billion Christians around the world celebrate Easter Sunday on this 31st day of March, Google is using its famous Doodle search logo art to mark the birth of left-wing labor leader, Twitchy.com notes, adding that Googles Easter insult sparks Twitter backlash, mockery, as well it should.
The timing of latest in-your-face politically correct homepage is oddly appropriate. As Dennis Prager has written, You cannot understand the Left if you do not understand that leftism is a religion, and one with its own sources of mythology. Back in 2006 at Tech Central Station, Lee Harris described French Marxist Georges Sorel (1847-1922), and the concept of the Sorelian Myth:
Sorel, for whom religion was important, drew a comparison between the Christian and the socialist revolutionary. The Christians life is transformed because he accepts the myth that Christ will one day return and usher in the end of time; the revolutionary socialists life is transformed because he accepts the myth that one day socialism will triumph, and justice for all will prevail. What mattered for Sorel, in both cases, is not the scientific truth or falsity of the myth believed in, but what believing in the myth does to the lives of those who have accepted it, and who refuse to be daunted by the repeated failure of their apocalyptic expectations. How many times have Christians in the last two thousand years been convinced that the Second Coming was at hand, only to be bitterly disappointed yet none of these disappointments was ever enough to keep them from holding on to their great myth. So, too, Sorel argued, the myth of socialism will continue to have power, despite the various failures of socialist experiments, so long as there are revolutionaries who are unwilling to relinquish their great myth. That is why he rejected scientific socialism if it was merely science, it lacked the power of a religion to change individuals lives. Thus for Sorel there was an analogy between religion and the revolutionary Socialism which aims at the apprenticeship, preparation, and even the reconstruction of the individual a gigantic task.
Go here to read the rest. Leftism truly is a religion, a very sad and pathetic one.
Call me when he leaves the grave.

Are we going to spend the day complaining about some website logo or praising God for the sacrifice of his son to give us eternal life? Let’s try to keep things in perspective today.
This will produce more FORMER Google users.. Bing, Startpage, Ixquick, etc, here we come.
Share this on facebook.
I just uploaded a BING appt and relegated GOOGLE to the land of wind and ghosts (and Marxists)
It’s our love in believing that has gotten us upset at Google.
This one tipped me over the limit. Google is removed from my browser.
There will come a time when you will not be able to find links to Free Republic on Google. And if it’s not on Google, it doesn’t exist.
Thanks for the tip! Google cleverly sucked us into their all encompassing vortex and now that their belly is full, feel righteous and just in delivering their message. No thanks.
You didn’t capitalize “Son.”
This event has helped me decide on a new phone choice, which I’ve been thinking of buying. I won’t be giving a CENT to Droid.
Bing is now my default search engine.
Ditto. Clearly the message is one of "in your face" to billions of christians.

That's when I switched to Bing where I got exactly what I was looking for on the first page and the next three pages without any of the propaganda that Googly had up front whether anyone was looking for that garbage or not.
I haven't used Googly since and showed a lot of other people the difference in results for various things that got them to switch to Bing as well.
When Google decides to celebrate a turd like Chavez who turned non unionized farm workers into immigration rather than celebrate Easter in even a secular manner, then yes I think we can take a moment from celebrating the resurrection of Christ to call them on it.There is time in every day to call attention to evil when we see it!
