    by attacking Easter they are not attacking any one church; they are insulting the followers. this is an insult to all living religious people, not just christians.

    i don't consider it "playing it safe"; google observes ramadan and hannukah, but they insult christians? i switched my search engines to bing this morning.

    i think google just jumped the shark. come monday, no one will use the phrase "google it" anymore. the generic term for doing an internet search come monday will be, "bing it." christians always get what they want because they just ask god for it and god delivers.

    I say we compromise and put a picture of Baltimore Mike up on Google. It is also his birthday, and he is beloved by the religious and the unaffiliated.

    "For Chavez, social reform was an extension of the Christian’s battle against sin. Without peace of spirit and purity of heart, there was little point in pursuing justice. Collective bargaining, just wages, shorter workdays: for Chavez none of these made sense outside the fact of his risen Lord."

    ps: no one -- other than cesar chavez -- really believes that jesus was dead and came back to life, do they? that sounds silly.
