The Significance of the Holiday
To all of our Christian readers, I wish a joyous Easter, full of reminders of the holiday’s significance to us. No matter what happens in this world, in our society, we’ve better things ahead. In all our actions, there should always be that underlying confidence in salvation.
Which is why it is only with sadness for those without that confidence that I take a moment to note how perfectly Google’s holiday logo for Easter represents the cultural landscape that a faction of Americans would like to foster. For those who don’t follow that link today, let me summarize: despite holiday precedent, the search-engine company has done absolutely nothing. Easter is less worthy of note, in Googleland, than Mozart’s birthday.
Consequently, I also take a moment to remind everybody that charity remains a goal — an obligation — even beyond Lent and to renew my suggestion to use the Yahoo!-based GoodSearch.com as an alternative to Google. GoodSearch’s logo incorporates a halo regardless of the day.
