Google Insults Christians

Apparently, failure to recognize Christian holidays with special treatment is an "insult."

Google's Cesar Chavez Logo Insults Christians On Easter: posts gathered from the forums include Posting a picture of Chevez on Easter makes me feel uncomfortable and creates a "hostile web environment". Please replace Chevez with an Easter-theme.

Got that? It is "hostile" to not make special Christian-holiday-themed pages. Maybe not if you don't ever do them (Yahoo had no Easter theme and got no flak for that, but Yahoo doesn't make themed search pages), but it's certainly insulting to honor something *else* that happened on the same date as a Christian holiday.

A couple of weeks ago, I switched to DuckDuckGo.com because of privacy concerns. The Easter Chavez logo, and surrounding controversy, makes me less twitchy about still using Google for those searches where DDG just doesn't have what I'm looking for.
