Google's new doodle takes aim at Russia's anti-gay laws, with a rainbow Olympics logo greeting users who need to search the web.

In response to Russia's laws banning pro-gay "propaganda," the search page also poignantly quotes the Olympic Charter:

"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."


The Doodle isn't just being used in the US, either: it's being used it in other countries, including the Russian version of Google. Well done, Google. Well done. [Google]
