Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

While some Christians spent Easter Sunday worshipping in church, some ever-vigilant crusaders spent the day waving torches and brandishing pitchforks at Google for posting the most egregious, anti-jesus, offensive and blatantly anti-Christian doodle of all time.

Behold the evil below the fold - if you dare!
Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

That's right, with obvious malicious intent, Google didn't post a suitable doodle honoring Christians on Easter Sunday. In fact they didn't do anything! Leaving the iconic Google doodle in its original form leaves little doubt in some good Christian minds that the tech giant is playing an active role in the War on Christianity.

The Evil Bastards! They ruined the internet on Easter!

And don't think for a moment that Christians didn't get pretty hopped up about it!

The play by play from Google forums:

Kyle's a man of few words. He gets right to the point.
ABC News is really pissd off and Greg has become a Christian Doodle Advocate!
Ah. Sisserydoo has got the sads, but Billy thinks she's first class!
Caroline clearly sees a vast, left-wing atheist conspiracy!
Timmy ain't playing with Google no more!
And so on, and so on, and so on.....

And then the wonderful, worldwide internet woke up in all its snarky glory on 4/20 and restored my faith in humanity.

But Billy wasn't about to let him have the last word:
But then Google Face brought it all home:
Whewww! That was exhausting.
