Religious Bias at Google?

I found this graphic at a great site called AtlasShrugs.com.  Pamela Geller does some great work and research on a variety of issues including the exposing of radical Muslims for the wackos that they are.  

The article that goes along with the graphic explains the inherit bias built into Google.com.  It is no secret that the Google company has a leftist point of view.  That really doesn’t bother me – it’s a free country (for now) – you can believe what you want.  Where I do have a problem is te systematic exclusion of information that conflicts with their thoughts and ideals.  In this instance, Ms. Geller did a quick test to see what would happen if she typed in several terms including Christianity is, Judaism is, Buddhism is, etc.  The last part of the graphic shows what happened when you type in Islam is.  Nothing, Zilch, Nada.

Evidently Google indicates that this is an error and they are working on it.  Right.  I believe that. 

 

Here is the post from Atlas Shrugs:

CENSORSHIP: Google Blocking “Negative” Searches Related to Islam

Google is blocking “negative” searches related to Islam. Free thought, free will, free men? Only for left-o-fascists. Notice how quick Google is to scrub jihad websites, videos, and incitement to violence? Of course you haven’t, because they don’t. Google-owned you tube runs all the jihad porn, but if patriots get out of line, their vids are deleted and accounts suspended.

Google proudly endorsed Obama and was banning anti-Obama blogs during the election like clockwork.

The leftist Islamic alliance is hard at work. Evil makes for strange bedfellows.

Google’s conduct in all things jihad has been unconscionable.

Google Blocking Negative Search Recommendations On Islam – Why? (hat tip Joe)

When you search for the major religions of the world, the monotheistic faiths for example, Google serves up suggestions for the search “Christianity is” such as, “a lie,” or false.” Try it on a a number of faiths, and then Islam.

Notice any difference?

Google is systematically blocking, it seems, all search suggestions for Islam. Why? To remove the chance of an adherent of the faith from being offended by a perhaps severe search suggestion? Why not treat all search terms equally?

Given the complete lack of suggestions, not just terms that could be perceived as negative, it seems that Google is covering its, well, behind.

I tried this little experiment for my self and came up with the same result.  Interesting.

Of course, this is just my opinion.
