A Google Experiment, Catholic Style

So, you know how when you search on Google, suggestions come up? Like, you type “French” and Google suggests “French fries”?

Well, I did a little experiment.

First, some background on how Google suggestions work. Suggestions are based largely on popularity. In other words, Google suggests search terms that others have entered before. Another factor involved in search suggestions is location. Google suggests terms that others in your area search.

So, my experiment is meant to answer the following question: What does the average Google user think of religion, God, and Catholicism?

I typed in partial search terms and observed what suggestions came up. I don’t quite know what to make of the findings…they aren’t really positive. At least they’re funny sometimes.

So, what’s the moral of this story? The public does not view religion favorably. Generally.

But let’s not lose hope here! We can do something about this! We need to go out and spread the Gospel. We need to dispel false rumors. We need to let our joy for Jesus Christ shine through for the world to see!
