Apparently, Big Brother isn’t a believer.
Many users of Google Home–a smart speaker technology that allows people to give voice commands to Google’s smart personal assistaant–have noted a curious glitch: the device is unable to describe who Jesus Christ was, even though it provides information on the founders of other major religions.
Television producer David Sams brought widespread attention to the issue by displaying the deficiency in a live-stream video, Fox 17 Nashville reports.
Asking Google Home “who is Jesus?” and “who is Jesus Christ?” repeatedly prompted the answer “I’m not sure how to help you with that.”
Confirmed: Google Smart Home Audio products apparently have a problem knowing who Jesus is. Meanwhile, Google Home knows who Buddha is, even knows who I am…but not Jesus! This is crazy! Thank you Jillian Blackwell for bringing this to my attention. HERE’S RAW VIDEO, UNEDITED VIDEO TRUTH. I even tried asking a couple different ways. Watch for yourself:

The device gave Sams Wikipedia bios about Buddha and even himself, but was unable to respond to several requests for information about Jesus Christ.
“It’s kinda scary, it’s almost like Google has taken Jesus and God out of smart audio,” Sams told Fox 17. “First it started with schools.”
Another Nashville resident, Martin Collins, told Fox 17, “They took prayer out of schools, they think just taking Jesus out of everything is politically correct these days and I think that’s the stem of a lot of our problems.”
Martin noted Google Home even recognizes Satan and blamed “political correctness.” He added, “That seems to be more important these days than what’s right and what’s wrong.”
Sams called on Google to provide a solution. “I don’t know if there’s some kind of wizard making these decisions or if it’s some kind of oversight. But whatever it is, they need to address it immediately.”
Other Google Home owners tried the same experiment and posted their findings on online. In one video, the technology could not describe Jesus, but did give a description of Islamic prophet Muhammad.
Users have had similar experiences with Amazon’s equivalent of Google Home–Amazon Alexa.
In November, conservative pundit Steven Crowder released a video in which Alexa described Jesus as “a fictional character,” while calling Muhammad “a very wise prophet.”
Last year, users found that Google Home was inadvertently spying on users, recording their conversations even when they didn’t mean to use the device, CNN reported.
Maybe putting too much trust in “smart” technology isn’t a smart decision.
It’s obvious Google doesn’t know God.

God will have his wrath on Google!

This is ridiculous. Regardless of what religious beliefs you have Jesus was a real human being. Not cool.

I think the only time Google Home will mention God or Jesus is if they proudly show how to properly deface the image of our Lord and Savior or how to burn a Bible.

It’s because the Globalist “Elites” have decided that the Western (predominantly Christian) World must fall, to allow them to build their dystopian society, where they own, have and control everything.
It’s another thing in their overall NWO agenda.
