Google honored the Hindu festival of Holi earlier this year, and the Jewish festival of Tu B'av, as well as dedicating an entire subpage to the Islamic festival of Ramadan but heaven forbid they honor any of the holidays from the largest religion, which are also celebrated by secular people (Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, etc.). Of course they put something up on December 25 but it's invariably referred to as "happy holidays", despite the lack of any Christmas cheer associated with that banal phrase.

Yeah! Why is Easter glaringly ignored?

I'm sick of one of the most important Christian holidays being ignored while other religious holidays as well as homosexuality are celebrated as doodles on the Google Search bar. If Google has tried to prevent religious favoritism or tried to promote its political correctness, it has failed. On behalf of a vast portion of those who go on google - Christians - I advocate for Google's acknowledgement of Easter as a doodle.

It depresses me :(
I usually enjoy google doodles, and went to see what cute thing they put up today...nothing.
Sure makes me feel like a 2nd class citizen to have my religion ignored while others are honored.

We are not ignored sisserydoo, we are purposely insulted. It is a conscious decision on their part though you will never hear a reason why. Bing does have a reference to Easter on their search engine btw. Not the religious connotations but all the same, google couldn't even put up a couple of bunny ears. They want transparency, they are about as transparent as one can get and its ugly inside.
 
You are first class, sisserydoo, and since google fails to say so, Happy Easter.

I quit using Google search engine and gmail after the 2013 Easter fiasco. I mean, they could have done nothing rather than post some socialist doodle on Easter. The obvious anti-Christian doodle policies in addition to their unabashed promotion of homosexual sex confirms my move. Maybe they should try being more "inclusive." I think I'm going to ditch my android S3 for the next iPhone when it comes out also.

i am slightly disipointed in google not enough to make me have a bad day or anything i dont want this to be a rant on google but i do agree that it is not right to ignore the christian holidays but being jewish it is also not right to ignore jewish holidays but everyone needs to take into consideration that google is a big corparition that may forget about passover and easter so i belve that we need to cut google some slack but google also has to rember most of the usa is made up of christians and to rember their holidays

google remembers averroes' 888th birthday and not Easter? If averroes birthday fell on the same day Daniel Pearl was murdered by subhuman scum, you can bet the doodle would still have gone up.
 
No. A corporation is made up of people, it isn't some lifeless entity. They are well aware they neglected to put something up. Happy Passover btw ;)

King Jesus is alive and well. He has risen from the dead whether Google likes it or not... whether they acknowledge Him or not. He is still LORD OF LORDS AND KING OF KINGS. 'nuff said.
