Skip to comments.Good Friday: Google Celebrates Earth, Ignores Jesus
Posted on 04/22/2011 6:42:03 AM PDT by patriotgal71
This year, Good Friday and Earth Day fall on the same day and internet giant Google has chosen to prop up the liberal eco-celebration, and ignore a sacred Christian holiday celebrated by billions worldwide.

Same on Yahoo! where they have animation of a globe being inflated like a balloon.
Same thing on Yahoo.
It’s okay though, Jesus will be around long after earth day is an ignored date.
Sadly, most worship the creation rather than the Creator.
Choose this day whom you will serve. (To not choose is to choose.)
I have no use for Earth Day, but Google representing Good Friday is wrought with peril. Google can’t do solemn. That said, it is in bad taste to “celebrate” “Earth Day” at all. Yesterday I wrote a message to a media company letting them know why I was unsubscribing to their alerts. It had to do with their big “Earth Day” promotion.
I’m always surprised when these threads come up because I’m surprised people still actually go to Google’s homepage.
I don’t think either Google or Yahoo mention religious holidays of any kind, unless there is a secular celebration at the same time. Doesn’t bother me, because I celebrate them at my Parish, so whether or not an ‘international’ organization mentions Jesus is irrelevant.
Umh ... google is a global company not a christian company. There are about 7 billion souls on this planet and only about 2.1 billions are christians. But all of googles global customers usually spend life on this planet. So i don’t see any problem here.
I think the state of the world today, is pretty well described in the words below:
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock Rev 3:20 (Jesus kicked out but keeps knocking on the door to see if somebody will let Him in)
You say, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; Rev 3:17 (How people today see themselves and why they feel no need for God)
but you don't know that you are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked Rev 3:17 (How God sees people today (the way things REALLY are)).
At least google had a christmas google doodle as far as i remember.
Doesn’t surprise me about Google. But I was pleasantly surprised when I visited a website this morning and saw their logo reflected Good Friday and Easter...it’s subtle, but it’s there.
Also surprising was that my son called and had the day off. He works for a large corporation and Good Friday is one of their paid holidays. I didn’t know companies did that anymore.
“Good Friday: Google The World In General Celebrates Earth, Ignores Jesus”
Do you think google should also celebrate christian good friday and islamic “Day of Ashura” and buddhist “Visakah Puja” ? They are a global company. They serve a few billion people and only a minority belives in Jesus. Why should they do something like this ?
Liberals only celebrate that which can destroy the US economy.
Earth day, yes let’s not pollute the earth even though man on earth has the potential of polluting the earth like an amoeba has the potential of body slamming a whale. 5000 trillion metric tons of atmosphere 80 miles high, oh yes we can affect that. The percentage of CO2 is 0.04% which is zero point zero.
If we try hard enough running every car and factory 24 hours a day 7 days a week for the next 1000 years maybe we can get that level up to 0.05% which would still be zero point zero, because as we all know a level of zero point zero is extremely dangerous.
I'm waiting on the upgrade.
And Jesus laughs!!
Why do they have to celebrate “Earth Day” today with a special graphic at all? Doing so on Good Friday is “insensitive” to billions of Christians worldwide. Google ought to be more considerate. The hypocrisy of liberalism is what’s really on display.

The Anti-Christian westerners are just as dangrous as the Islamists. IMO.
“Why do they have to celebrate Earth Day today with a special graphic at all?”
Because we all spend our time on planet earth.

With all this political correctness you sound like a libtard.
I remember the Earth Day celebrations they held at the Washington Mall.
It took over two days to clean up all the trash.
Celebrate EARTH DAY — USE as much ENERGY as POSSIBLE!!! :-)
“It took over two days to clean up all the trash.”
I’m sure they only left compostable biowaste. :-)
The "I-have-need-of-nothing" argument. Kinda my point.

Don’t think so. Let’s say 10% of google users are christians. That means you’re at risk that 90% of your customers might get disgruntled by your “good friday ad”. So this is not such a good idea.
Protecting the environment you’ve got 95% on your side. So promoting earth day is a good idea.
Right. The world has kicked Jesus out. Jesus is no longer a profitable idea. Google is only responding to market conditions. But "market conditions" is my point: the world doesn't think it needs Jesus ("I have need of nothing").
But even though He's been kicked out, Jesus in His mercy is knocking at the door. Soon, however, the world is going to see what it's REALLY like without God's help and it won't be a pretty picture.
Bing did the same thing. Their homepage is an overview of a forest canopy.
Google should create some subbrands with special holiday doodles for each.

jewgle.il google for jews
I honestly do not get why some people have a chip on their shoulders about what Google chooses to do with their freaking logo. I guess every other problem in the world has been solved if this is what we have left to complain about.
Yeah, it’d be so much better if Google cheapened the death of Christ by putting a cartoon cross in place of the ‘L’ in their name. Y’all are crazy. Grow up.
Oh, they always have some sort of design for Christmas, but it’s almost never religious. If they have one for Easter, it will probably be eggs, chicks, or bunnies. It was not surprising that there wasn’t anything for Good Friday.
I’m a “Bing” chic
“It was not surprising that there wasnt anything for Good Friday.” Me too, so i don’t understand all the madness about it.
Nothing today for Easter.
