Resurrection, Easter, Chavez, and of course Google

To their minds the story seemed madness, and they could not believe it. Luke 24:11

It’s Resurrection Day, Easter Sunday, and Cesar Chavez’s 86th birthday. But you already knew that, didn’t you? Well at least a pair of them. For many, it’s Easter and a wascally wabbit will soon hide eggs so that the baskets he earlier delivered can be put to use. Also for the many, we celebrate our Risen Lord; He’s Alive! Regarding Cesar, someone’s probably asking “wow dude, what do you… keep like a list of birthdays of old dead guys so as to remember their feats and contributions?”

Google ChavezNo, nothing like that. I just opened Google Chrome. There he was, center stage, labor revolutionist. Will you join me for a round of Happy Birthday? I mean, this is pretty significant stuff here. One can hardly blame Google for wanting to recognize a man with acts of this magnitude as opposed to say, Jesus, the Savior of the world rising victoriously from His tomb.

In all seriousness though, I really feel sorry for the Easter bunny. Looks like he’s getting a taste of his own medicine. It’s okay buddy, I’ll eat a boiled egg on your behalf after church later.

And to those at Google, you’re looking a lot like a bunch of religious leaders offering a rich bribe to coax some graveside guards to lie, “Tell them His disciples came and stole the body.”

I have no doubt Mr. Chavez was a man driven by passion for the hurting and the abused. I can even muster up a little compassion for a forgotten rabbit. But I have to be really honest with you here. These things pretty much pale to nonexistence in the light of an empty tomb that gave forth the victorious risen Savior and Lord! “He is not here; He is risen.”

But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 1 Corinthians 15:20

    Well, there’s a fine how do you do. Talk about being out of the loop. I’m sure Cesar is embarrassed. Thanks for reminding us of yet another obvious reflection of this fallen world. Many of us have noticed there are lands, buildings, multiple facilities, roads, streets, and etc named for any number of whoevers who passed through the world but nothing named for the Creator of the world. Will these people ever get a clue?

    Just to say I have nominated you for a ‘Liebster award’ – don’t know if you do that sort of thing, but wanted ti show my appreciation anyhow: http://jessicahof.wordpress.com/2013/04/01/winning-a-lobster/

  3. Amen!

    Google blew it. Today, March 31, 2013, their logo shows a picture of Cesar Chavez.

    Instead of acknowledging Easter, one of the most prominent holidays of the year, (certainly the most notable among 2 billion Christians) Google has decided to honor Cesar Chavez.

    As a Mexican-American, I certainly appreciate and respect the accomplishments of a Hispanic community leader as Cesar Chavez, and although I agree that Mr. Chavez deserves to be recognized on his birthday, I don’t think it trumps the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
    Cesar Chavez has done much for the Hispanic community and deserves recognition, but not more than my Savior.

    Cesar Chavez did not die for my sins. Jesus did.

    As I recall, Google has done something similar with American Holidays, such as Veteran’s Day and Memorial Day, honoring other things instead.
    So, as of today, Google has lost my business, no more Google ad words, no more Google wallet, Google Drive, Google +, Google Chrome, Gmail or Google Search Engine. No more Google.
    Bing, here I come.

    May the grace and peace of Jesus Christ be with you all,

    Reblogged this on Daily Enduring Truth and commented:
    I thought this article did a great job of looking at Google’s decision to recognize today by ignoring Easter. Enjoy!

  7. I’m with you, I thought…I’m offended by that, the bunny gets nothing, probably because heis a Christian.

    He is risen indeed!

    (I prefer Bing, because Google seems to be a bit too full of itself)

    Have a great day!
