Google draws up a special doodle to celebrate the birthday of every random historical figure one can find in the encyclopedia, but they remain allergic to Easter. Sunday marked no less than the 18th year straight that Google steadfastly refused to change their logo in such a way that it would reflect what is arguably the most important date in the Christian calendar; the holiday that celebrates Jesus Christ’s resurrection after crucifixion. Without this momentous event in history, the core of Christianity is missing, the faith of billions gutted.
Not to mention, in secular terms, this is a holiday that hundreds of millions of Americans celebrate with games, feasts, egg hunts, candy, and a big giant bunny! So why is Google so reluctant to put their stamp of recognition on this widely-observed holiday?
“So Google has a doodle for every obscure ‘woke’ person/event imaginable, but nothing for Easter?” wrote Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars.
Actor James Woods retweeted Watson and replied, “They loathe Christians. Plain and simple.”
Prominent YouTube personality Jill Colton joined in to echo their complaints. “Once again, no Google doodle for Easter,” she wrote. “They have doodles for every other mediocre occasion (incl the Olympic ‘fruit games’), but they can’t even make an Easter bunny/egg graphic? Their contempt for Christian traditions is clear as day. #GoogleIsGarbage.”
Fox News reached out to Google for an explanation and the tech giant explained: “We don’t have Doodles for religious holidays, in line with our current Doodle guidelines. Doodles may appear for some non-religious celebrations that have grown out of religious holidays, such as Valentine’s Day, Holi’s Festival of Colors, Tu B’Av and the December holiday period, but we don’t include religious imagery or symbolism as part of these.”
Right, but that goes back to our second paragraph, because there’s no denying that there is a strong secular “overlay” to modern American Easter celebrations. Yet we didn’t see any candy eggs or bunny ears on Google’s doodle this year, either. It’s almost like they wanted to distance themselves from anything that even comes CLOSE to the world’s (by far) dominant religion.
Almost like that, indeed…
