Google logo: Sochi games - and gay rights support?

See also

Google has another doodle (logo) today. To celebrate the winter Olympics that are just getting started they have replaced their logo with a sporty (pun intended) doodle that reflects the different sports played.

Google also has one of the following quotes on its home page, depending on where you see the new doodle:

"The practice of sport is a human right. Every individual must have the possibility of practicing sport, without discrimination of any kind and in the Olympic spirit, which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play." –Olympic Charter

"The practice of sport is a human right." –Olympic Charter

Some say that the doodle clearly reflects support for gay rights because of the rainbow colors Google chose for the doodle. Russia has anti-gay laws that many are calling unfair.

We will very likely see other Google doodles depicting the winter games as they progress. Google has done that in the past during both summer and winter Olympic games.

Google regularly replaces its logo on its home page to celebrate birthdays, holidays and other events. You can see all of Google's doodles by visiting their doodle history page. You can see the very first doodle from August 30, 1998 when the two founders went to the Burning Man Festival.
