Evidently, some Christians need reminded: over the weekend, Google was blasted for its Doodle on Easter Morning. Said Doodle was a picture of Cesar Chavez, the late humanitarian and advocate for migrant workers.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky first heard of the “controversy” via his Facebook page, on which he saw a fair few outraged posts about Google’s supposed anti-Christian Doodle du jour. at first he thought the posters were too ignorant (or too full of Right-wing political nonsense) to know the actual deeds and beliefs of Cesar Chavez, but that was an overestimation of their intelligence.

No, the angrily-tweeting Christians were upset that there were no cutesy pictures of Easter eggs, Easter Bunnies or such. Yes, you read that correctly. They think the AntiChrist has arrived and its name is a search engine’s, because there was no hippity-hoppity, floppy-eared, egg dispensing cartoon creature prancing across the homepage.

Now, this is not to diss bunnies, eggs, candy and plastic green grass; nor is it meant to denigrate the sacrifice made by Rabbi Jesus of Nazareth. This writer appreciates all of these things.

But it makes you wonder if any of those protesting have actually read their Bibles lately. Because if they had, they’d know that cute little Lagomorphs and colored avian ova do not appear in the tale of Christ’s sacrifice and resurrection. Nowhere. Not once.
