I just deleted google as my default search engine and removed it as my home page

That is about 1000 hits a day they will lose from me alone.

There are a lot of things worth getting upset about.

Google acting like Google is not one of them.

If Google ignores ALL religious news I see no problem. If they favor one religion then I see a problem. I have no way of knowing what they do because I never read any of their stuff anyway.

Thank you Mr. K,

YES, GOOGLE HATES AMERICA.

Awhile back, I emailed Google, asking why they didn't commemorate Veterans Day. They responded, "We're sorry we didn't honor a day that's important to you."

If enough patriots would participate in dragging Google to the woodshed...

If enough...

Ditto to your action. Will clear google from

It's time to “PUSH BACK NOW”. I will encourage all family and friends to do the same.

I have contacted Google via posting a question through their contact page. This is an absolute disgrace, and I, for one, will be using fewer of Google’s services. How can they ignore a holiday celebrated by appx. 2 billion people around the globe? This is an outrage, and I hope that as more of us contact them, the image will be changed later on today.

Do you really care if Google recognizes Christianity? I don't. Christianity was here long before Google was and will be long after Google is gone.

WHY would anyone use google ?

STARTPAGE is much better - ie MUCH BETTER.

DOESNT GET ALL THOSE EXTRANEOUS HITS

and doesnt save all that info about you.

STARTPAGE is built for the consumer, not the other way.

btw HAPPY EASTER !

I have my default set to duckduckgo.com now, and have had for about a year. Google has pretty useful maps, but often bing is more up to date. Google was trying to outthink what I wanted and had too many “hits”. For now, duckduckgo works.

Also, Google doesn’t like Opera.

I don’t think this is really worth getting upset about. No one has to care about anyone else’s religion. I’m sure they didn’t want to alienate millions of customers by favoring any one religion over another.

And I see right next to Start Page’s search bar that it says “Powered by Google”. Does that bug you?

Search Engine DogPile actually has a cute Easter page.

http://www.dogpile.com/info.dogpl.t6.2/search/home

There’s number of great search engines as alternatives to Oogle.

As someone said, Duckduckgo.com is also good.

No more Google.

Bing ALWAYS acknowledges Easter. If you use google and are a Christian you have some serious soul searching to do.

Google has been doing it for years! In fact, I checked google.com to see who they’d honor instead of Christ this year.

And like clockwork Bing acknowledges Easter. I’ve been using Bing for years and I do not miss Google at all. I love the new daily photo bing does as well. That’s what got me hooked. And the Search is really good too (Now).

Today I switched by browser to default to Bing. This was the last straw: Google’s official motto is “do no evil”, but it seems to me that evil is *all* they do.

My God, you guys do this every year.

You think they give a hoot about what you think they should have on their browser?

And suggesting people delete it as their search engine is going to do anything?

You want to hurt them, demand that your 401k fund divest themselves of Google.

In the end you will see how insignificant those moves are.

You, me, none of us matter to Google.

So why get your panties in a bunch over this every holiday.

All of his protesters came from 8 of the 9 parishes of the Catholic Church in East Los Angeles,the district I ran for the Assembly in 1980, and no one of them ever worked on a farm.

He was a flat out communist and the only reason he was able to organize the farm workers was because Bank of America refused to make any crop loans unless the farmer signed his labor agreement.
