Google Won’t Celebrate Easter But It Will Celebrate THESE Obscure Occasions

A number of conservatives are crying foul at Google’s lack of a “doodle” for Easter Sunday – one of the most significant Christian holidays of the year.

The Rebel’s Ezra Levant posted the following tweet, pointing out that Google creates doodles for everything, “no matter how obscure or bizarre” (more on this later).

Subsequently, a number of users joined in the criticism.

“But they will be all over Ramadan like a rash,” wrote @TitanicQueen. “Just watch for that one Ezra.”

@louiseallain wrote, “sad… our feast doesn’t count?”

“The globalists hate Christianity,” remarked @right_viewpoint.

“Shame,” wrote @PlimouthMA. “Where’s the doodle celebrating Easter? Is EVERYTHING under the sun EXCEPT Christianity to be celebrated?”

“@Google clearly isn’t a great fan of Christians and Christianity,” wrote @SevenGreenLions.

Of course, this is not the first time Google has come under fire for ignoring Easter.

As Newsbusters reports, the ‘controversy’ has popped up in previous years too. Last year, the company actually addressed the backlash.

“Thank you everyone for your feedback,” wrote a Google employee named AJ on the company’s feedback board. “We enjoy celebrating holidays at Google but, as you may imagine, it can be difficult for us to choose which events to highlight on our site each year.”

AJ concludes, “Google published [an Easter] doodle in 2000: https://www.google.com/doodles/happy-easter-2000

Here are a few recent doodles from Google depicting holidays the company apparently deems as more worthy of celebration than Easter.

The 56th Anniversary of Xingu Indigenous Park in Brazil

Girls’ Day

The 340th Anniversary of the Determination of the Speed of Light

The Day of the Dead

Mountain Day

Mudik (Indonesian holiday)

Long Night Of Museums

    I don’t care – I hope Google keeps their filthy paws off of Easter. This is the year that true liberals – including those in the media – expose their true identities. I just hope that people are watching and paying attention.

    Doesn’t matter to me either. I know who I am and what day this is. I know what God I praise, too. I don’t need some globalist company like Google to condescend to me and mine like they seem to do to all of these other other groups and obscure holidays. That’s all it is…. liberal, white-guilt, soft-racist, condescension.

Also, every right-wing enthusiast I know identifies themselves as “FAAAR FUCKING RIGHTWING” and signs off with “THATS ALL MUTHAPHUKKA!” These are definitely tell-tale signs that the author is a member of the privileged, white male class. {That’s how you do sarcasm.}

        Jeff is probably referring to opposition to laws that require people to enter restrooms, locker rooms, and showers that correspond to their biological sex only, which helps greatly in keeping (mostly straight) male perverts out of women’s restrooms, etc., which is a safety issue.

      And the jews. And the hindus. And the atheists. And everyone else who doesn’t happen to be Christian.
      Google not only provides a service for many people around the world, who adhere to a variety of beliefs, they employ people from all over the world with various beliefs. Are people here saying that google’s own employees should be kissing up to Christians, and no other religion? That the Christians alone should get this special treatment? Because contrary to what is written above, Google does not do doodles of the Ramadan. Nor Eid. Or Hanukkah. For the holidays they have made doodles for, they have made them non-religious, showing easter eggs for easter, instead of the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ, showing people travelling on Mudik, not attending a mosque, shamrocks and lepricons for St Patrick’s day and so on.

      Why should Christianity get any kind of special treatment from a global and non-religious corporation? And why do so many people here see that as an insult to Christianity alone?

Now I know I’m just one person, but hey if I can use a different search engine (and to be honest I still find exactly what I need) so can everyone else.

    I definitely have more to say on Google and my opinions of the company. However, I will leave it at that.

        I work there, and used to work with a company that hosted sexist, ‘women only’ hiring events for other companies like Adobe. They would hold programming competitions (which led to interviews) called ‘Code Like a Girl’ (whatever that means). Racism and Sexism are alive and well, which is why girls who used to serve coffee are getting paid $65k / year to answer emails when they can’t even put together a decent business letter. Yet, if I get paid $70k after years of experience and hard work, they will cite this as the infamous pay-gap. The management is all hardcore Socialists, but the pay is so insanely good, I have to play along while I save up for my own business.

    The fact that this omission of an Easter Google doodle surprises anyone is what blows my mind. Look at the people that run the company. Look at their background and upbringing. They have no concept of Christ or God other than what they may have learned by accident or listening to the media. It certainly wasn’t taught in their homes, and heaven forbid they ever took time out of their schooling or self-absorption to attend church. These are people of this world in the highest order. They don’t need God, want God, and have no use for anyone who might. They should fully enjoy their wealth, fame, and good fortune now to the fullest extent because their next stop is going to be hell. Don’t be surprised when a snake bites you. You knew what it was when you picked it up. The same way you shouldn’t be surprised when a bunch of Godless humans ignore your religion, holidays, or savior. Expect it. It is what they do. It is all they know.

        I’m sure pagans hate how their holiday was redirected to Christ. Either way, I don’t like associating with the idea of the goddess Easter, so I call it Resurrection Day instead.

          I don’t think you’ll find all that many Eastre worshiping pagans around these days, and those that are there probably care as little about the Christians using the day and the name, as you do about them. Why would they hate Christians redirecting the day? Why would they care? And it would be holidays, plural, many of the Christian holidays were pagan ones first.

            Do these neo-pagans have a clue as to WHY that was done? It was to communicate the message of Christ and Christianity in a way that the pagans would comprehend. Perhaps Christians should continue doing that, although it would be difficult to transmute the Kardashians or Beyonce into anything remotely resembling Christlike behavior.

            I’ve never come across such a thing. I’ve read many posts and memes pointing out that all these days observed by the Christians were aligned with days already observed by other existing religions to point out that Jesus most likely was not born on Christmas day and was most likely not crucified on Good Friday, but not bragging or scoffing, just taking a dig at the people that take everything in the Bible as the literal truth. Just like pointing out how inconceivable the story of Noah and the ark is.

    It’s probably a blessing in disguise. Rarely do you get to see a person’s or an organization’s true colors. Most of them craftily cover them up. In this case Google is clearly letting us know that it does not consider the celebration of Christ rising from the dead, giving all humans the greatest hope, very important. A time celebrated by most Americans and a large part of the world. If you take it for face value, Christianity is the faith of love, truth, charity, etc. For a person or organization to be against such things or consider them unimportant tells you a lot. Maybe you don’t believe in Christ or Christianity, but certainly you would agree with it’s importance and it’s values. This combined with it’s popularity makes a lot of sense to celebrate this with those that do believe, especially for a business. To ignore it for so many years is an obvious statement that believers and nonbelievers should take notice. Why would they make such an obvious omission? Their motto “don’t be evil” falls short here. For some reason people find Christ offensive. I have never understood this, but those that practice evil, will avoid things that point it out. Obviously Google has no desire to be associated with truth, love, liberty, charity, etc. They may give it lip service, but, actions speak louder than words.
