Google Worships Their God

Faithful readers will recall the post, here, where I noted that Google observed the birthday of Cesar Chavez on Easter.  Today Google is observing Earth Day.  I find Earth Day to be a banal, politicized event, redolent of the fuzziest thinking of the Sixties, but if Google wants to observe it, fine by me.  I would not have said the same back in 2011 when Earth Day fell on Good Friday and Google decided to observe Earth Day.  Google defenders usually state that Google has a policy of not observing religious events.  Indeed?  Anyone who has not noted that environmentalism has become a huge substitute religion over the past four decades simply hasn’t been paying attention.

  1. God gave us stewardship of the earth and all that dwelt therein back in the Book of Genesis, Pope Benedict XVI was/is very environmentally conscious and Pope Francis (If anything.) is even MORE so (Taking the bus, smaller living quarters – the list goes on.). As I have pointed out to a Wiccan who is near and dear to my, they are making the mistake of worshiping the “created” rather than the “Creator”.
    Might I suggest that we praise what is good in the Environmentalist Movement while lovingly pointing out where they are going astray? My personal opinion is that such an approach would be at least, if not more, effective than boycotting their products (A tactic I do support for those who companies who contribute to abortion providers.).

    Who is “they” in the second sentence. It doesn’t seem to follow from anything in the first sentence.

  3. A false dilemma Joe. No one is denying the need to be good stewards of the Earth. We are pointing out the broad proclamation of Earth Day while omitting any mention of Easter (or placing Earth Day ahead of Good Friday as Don notes.)

    This isn’t the stewardship of Benedict, Francis or the Church. It is false worship.
