If you go to google.com and type in christianity is, google’s algorithms automatically try to finish your query. As with the case of the “I am Extremely Terrified of Chinese People” prank, it’s clear that Google’s suggestions do not imply that Google endorses this or that query — merely that such a query is common (for whatever reason). Google’s suggestions include Christianity is bullshit, Christianity is not a religion, Christianity is a cult, and conclude with Christianity is fake. All these results imly is that atheists can be insensitive jerks, which is hardly a surprise to anybody.
Similar results come up on Bing, Microsoft’s new search engine
And, as you would expect ,similar results come up when you use Bing to search for Islam is..
Now try your Islam is search in Google.
Google is fine with online bigotry against Christians, but censors online bigotry against Muslims.
The reason is obvious: Google is not afraid of charges of bigotry, but is afraid of terrorists.
Google is fearless when it comes to standing up to free speech advocates, but carries the flag of al Qaeda when their necks are on the line.
I hope no government officials have any family members with private Google accounts. A company that trembles this much at the call to Jihad might well turn over account information to terrorists… to avoid being provocative.
