It's not a proper Christian holiday unless there's a group freakout over some imagined secularist attack on their beliefs.
And this Easter pent up Christian outrage is frothing over. Well, I'm not sure "pent up" is the right phrase since it rarely seems contained.
But today, Google has made itself a target in the "Culture Wars" because it is Caesar Chavez's birthday and they chose to honor the deceased labor leader instead of a resurrected zombie Jesus with their Google "doodle."
Now I'm no expert or anything, but I kinda think Jesus would have dug Caesar Chavez.
Christians were also outraged in 2010 when Google honored Hans Christian Andersen's birthday instead of Good Friday. But c'mon, he at least has "Christian" in his name.
Personally, I am outraged every Good Friday when my recycling isn't picked up because of some bogus sectarian holiday.
Bing responded with a non-religous but more holiday-spirited theme of Easter Eggs.
In 2011, March 31 was declared "Caesar Chavez Day."
It is also amusing to see the number of outraged right wing Christian conservatives who don't know the difference between Hugo Chavez and Caesar Chavez.
