    Google has denied favouring Islam over other religions in its suggested searches, after allegations that phrases criticising the faith had been censored.
    Typing "Christianity is" or "Buddhism is" into the search engine's home page generates a range of offensive suggestions for how the user might wish to complete their query.

    These include "not a religion", "a cult", "fake" and "bull----". Few of the suggested searches are positive or neutral.

    But attempting a similar search for Islam produces no suggested results whatsoever, indicating that Google may be affording a protection to Muslims that it does not extend to people of other faiths....

    Google has denied protecting Islam from criticism, claiming that the lack of "Islam is" suggested searches is the result of a software problem that will soon be corrected.

    "This is a bug and we're working to fix it as quickly as we can," a spokesman told Wired.com....

    Google, the Internet's ubiquitous search engine, is under fire this week for censoring negative search results about Islam. If you type "Christianity is" into the Google search box, there immediately pop up a series of suggested completions to the sentence, most of them derogatory: "Christianity is bulls--t," "Christianity is not a religion," "Christianity is a lie," "Christianity is false," "Christianity is wrong," "Christianity is fake." No positive suggests come up. Likewise with "Buddhism is," and the sentence is once again completed with numerous negative suggestions: "Buddhism is wrong," "Buddhism is not what you think," and so on. But type in "Islam is," and nothing comes up at all. The negative suggestions inundating the searcher for other religions are nowhere to be seen.
    Google, however, says it was all a mistake, and denies have done anything to favor Islam. "This is a bug," insisted a Google spokesman, "and we're working to fix it as quickly as we can." Oddly enough, however, even with all of Google's technical savvy, this "bug" persisted for days and continues as of this writing, long after Google's announcement that it would quickly be fixed.

    Or perhaps it isn't so odd, in light of Google's long-established penchant for favoring the hard Left and its allies in the global jihad. Critics have complained for years about Google's tendency to decorate its logo colorfully for cherished days of the Left such as Earth Day and International Women's Day, while ignoring Christmas (aside from bland Holiday greetings) and Easter. What's more, Google-owned YouTube has more than once removed material critical of Islamic jihad supremacism, while allowing blood-curdling pro-jihad and vile anti-Semitic material to remain on the site. Google's policies on removing videos all too often has appeared to follow a consistent Leftist line: anti-American, anti-Israel, pro-jihad.

    It is also a remarkable coincidence that Google's "bug" would appear in Google not about Judaism or Christianity or Hinduism or Buddhism, but in connection with the world's most thin-skinned religion. The one religion shielded from adverse judgment at Google is also the only religion that has is currently engaged in an organized campaign to stifle honest discussion about its texts and teachings that inspire violence. In 2008 the Secretary General of the 57-government Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), the largest voting bloc at the United Nations today, Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, warned the West about "red lines that should not be crossed" regarding free speech about Islam and terrorism. For years now the OIC has spearheaded an effort at the UN to compel member states to criminalize what it calls "defamation of religions," but by which it clearly means any honest discussion of the texts and teachings of Islam that jihadists invoke to justify violence and supremacism. Interestingly enough, the OIC stepped up this campaign in the wake of the publication of cartoons of Muhammad in a Danish newspaper that touched off worldwide Muslim riots. Google, at the time those riots were raging, was dutifully removing from YouTube videos that depicted the cartoons.

    Thus when the OIC has Google, it doesn't need international edicts muzzling free speech. Like many on the Left, Google seems all too willing to carry water for the Islamic bloc's war against free speech and to oblige the OIC's totalitarian and thuggish influences, by voluntarily refraining from doing anything that might offend Muslims. While its restriction of the automated search suggestions may seem insignificant, its overall willingness to conform to notoriously fragile Islamic sensibilities and deep-six criticism of Islam is anything but trivial.

    What's more, what with Google's influence as by far the premier search engine, the idea that Western non-Muslims must make special allowances for easily-offended Muslims sets a precedent that can only bear bitter fruit in the future. Ultimately Google, and every individual, group, business, and governing authority in the West, is going to have to decide whether it is going to stand for the hard-won principles of free speech and free inquiry, or kowtow to Islamic supremacism and intimidation. When the censorship is voluntary and self-imposed, as in Google's case, it is all the more shameful.

    If it is a bug it stems from some moronic spellcheck software which cannot cope with the similarity between the first two letters "is"
    Programmers can get very slack about checking their algorithms and trying to find such a bug can prove a nightmare.
    Not claiming that it is a bug, bust that IF it is one then the cause is clear.

    :lol: It worked.

    I typed in

    "Christianity is"... and got exactly what was posted.

    I then typed in "Buddhism is" and got...

    "not a religion"
    "wrong"
    "not what you think"
    "bullshit"
    "polytheistic"
    "a religion"
    "false"
    "based on what concepts"
    "the best religion"
    "athiesm"

    Then "hinduism is"...
    "monotheistic"
    "false"
    "polytheistic"
    "the majority religion of"
    "the oldest religion"
    "not a religion"
    "fake"
    "most commonly found"
    "characterized by"
    "wrong"

    Just for fun I typed in "Pentecostalism is"... and got just "a cult".

    After I got much the same thing from typing "Sikhism is" I typed in "Islam is" and got nothing. NOW!! To be fair. I did a second experiment and typed in "Jesus is"... my results were as follows...

    "the reason for the season"
    "lord"
    "savior"
    "god"
    "the reason for the season lyrics"
    "my homeboy"
    "my friend"
    "just alright"
    "love lyrics"
    "just alright lyrics"

    I typed in "Muhammed is"...

    and got...

    "a false prophet"
    "satan"
    "the antichrist"
    "the messenger of god"
    "dead"
    "jesus"
    "in Hell"
    "not a prophet"
    "god".

    So my findings show that while google is decidedly biased towards the ISLAMIC FAITH... it's not to fond of the Islamic faith's prophet Muhammed. Now I realize that there are many ways to spell Muhammed's name because of the various translations out there... so I tried "Mohammed is" and got much the same... except a couple negative ones were added...

    "a liar"
    "a pig"

    and there was the one that I liked...

    "a jesus deep dish" ... don't know if that's considered negative? I guess if the Jesus deep dish has pepperoni on it... it probably would be.:lol:

    Anyway... I'm glad we figured this out its always good to know the all knowing sovereign will of the all mighty Google.
