Ponder Christian Soldiers Google's Smirking War on You

I too was saddened by Googles posture. What makes it even worse is that Cesar Chavez was a practicing Christian and would have cringed at Easter being upstaged by his "holiday". He was a daily Mass participant and communicant and was driven (at times mistakenly) by the plight of the farm workers. His politics and left leaning tendencies can be criticized but the faith and personal integrity that drove him are exemplary and akin to Mother Theresa and Pope Francis. Concern for the plight of the poor and the undeniable mistreatment of human beings in many places is a conservative value and any " looking the other way" diminishes us and our message.

Ouch!

deartola ... bringing facts to the table?

I think it's fair to assume that Google's staff is unaware of Cesar's faith or beliefs ... or much of anything else. I'm old enough to recall Cesar taking heat for being Catholic. (Never heard he was a daily communicant tho) But to be fair to critics, he is remembered as a labor/leftist leader.

Just as Reverend MLK's GOP membership and Christian faith are conveniently forgotten. He criticized Goldwater and spoke well of Kennedy, and he was popular and effective, so that's enough for the Left.

Oh, I think the Google staff is well aware of Cesar Chavez religious attributes. He was a devoted human being and to be the way he was you have to know the man was in touch with his maker. He got his strength to fight for his people from God. I am old enough to remember his fights too. and I always had admiration for him . I am satisfied to honor him on Easter Sunday , its all good.

Google scrambled some Easter eggs yesterday. Or, more precisely, it didn’t. It would be silly and counterproductive to exaggerate Google’s eye-poke at Christians, but it would be a mistake not to consider its meanings, too.

On Christianity’s holiest day, Easter Sunday, the Web’s hyper-dominant site’s commemorative screen was an earnestly winsome portrait of American labor organizer, Caesar Chavez.   Sure, no Christian was mocked, defamed, arrested, or persecuted. And heaven forbid any believer needs internet graphics to help bolster their faith.

But hundreds of millions of Christians received the clearly intended message that Google doesn’t deign to wish them...
