    I am very familiar with Chavez since I am a strong union advocate and an admirer of Chavez and what he fought for for the farm workers.  I'm also a very devout Christian (yet still a sinner) and I am a liberal Democrat.  But Google got it wrong to use a doodle for Chavez today and not Jesus Christ on Easter.

      One of the one where he is a white man?  One where he is more a brownish hue?  There are no pictures of Jesus and no one knows what he looked like.  The picture of Chavez serves just fine, and a few other devout Christians have the opportunity to learn just how Christlike the man was.

      World Series of Christianity this week, right? In fact, its only the Western Division-Eastern Orthodox Christians celebrate Easter in a few weeks.

      Jesus Christ never posed for a picture, and an empty hole in the wall would make for a lousy doodle. He is quite risen without Google's help.

      Google didn't get it wrong or right. Google did a birthday Doodle of an important figure.

      Oh....the Divinity.

      Peace is never simply the absence of war, it is the active presence of justice. It has to do with human fulfillment, with liberation, with wholeness, with a meaningful life and well-being, not only for the individual, but for the community as a whole.

      not a church. Not all of their "customers" are Christian. Why must their doodle reference YOUR religion?

      Should it never be C.C. ever ?

      And when J.C. is everywhere today ,
      why not a little C.C. also ?

      Who thinks you're wrong.

      This is the day the Lord has made...

      The Lord. Not Google, not any corporation. Why do you or any other Christian need affirmation of your faith by a corporate entity especially on Easter?

      What should Google have posted? Bunnies, chicks and eggs? And how do these relate to the true meaning of Easter?

      Holy Week and Easter constitute the holiest days of the year. Why in the world does any Christian need to look outward for acknowledgment of this? If anyone does, I'd suggest that they should have spent more time contemplating the events that lead up to Easter and its significance to Christians. (And its not bunnies and baskets full of jelly bellies).

      Jesus could not care less what Google puts up on its website. In fact, if he ever did check in on Google,  I would argue that respecting a man who devoted his life to helping the poor and oppressed is exactly what Jesus would prefer.
