Google Comes Out of The Closet And Blasts California Marriage Amendment
Mountain View, CA - Google's cofounder and President of Technology, Sergey Brin, posted a statement Friday on the company blog against Proposition 8, the proposed constitutional amendment that would protect marriage in California as the union of one man and one woman. The blog post admitted that marriage was an "unlikely question" for an official company statement and that there were "many objections" to taking a position.
Liberty Counsel predicts that Google will also hear objections from the general public, as news of its position circulates. Many traditional marriage supporters and pro-family groups will be "googling" for alternative search engines. The search engine, www.goodsearch.com, gives half of its advertising revenue to charities designated by people using the search engine. GoodSearch reports on its website that searchers have raised $18,000 for one nonprofit organization, the USPCA. Of course, Google is not the only search engine available to consumers. Washington Mutual became an active supporter of the homosexual agenda. But today, it is no more. Corporate America has learned the hard way that anti-family policies are bankrupt in more ways than one.
Mathew Staver, Founder of Liberty Counsel and Dean of Liberty University School of Law, commented on Google's official position: "Google should focus on technology instead of warring against marriage and family values held by the majority of people worldwide. Marriage between a man and a woman is the norm throughout the world. Google executives should be searching for ways to make the internet more usable rather than promoting a radical redefinition of marriage. Companies that promoted anti-family policies have learned the hard way that such policies are bankrupt. K-Mart learned its lesson several years ago. Washington Mutual and Wachovia, both of which actively promoted the homosexual agenda, have come to realize that anti-family policies will bankrupt the bottom line."
