|Bus with pro gay message|
A bus driver refused to do his daily route with the bus that had a gay rights message on the side.
Many people were left frustrated after they had to wait a while for the next bus to come after the driver in London, who is Christian, refused to use that particular bus with the gay rights message on it.
The Stonewall, a gay rights lobby activist group, is angry after the driver made a fuss about their ad on his bus.
The ad reads: "Some people are gay. Get over it!”
When the next bus arrived the drivers switched buses, so the Christian man would not be forced to drive a bus with a message that is against his beliefs. Angry stranded passengers argued with both drivers.
The new driver explained what was going on to them. He apologized to the passengers and said that the ad wasn’t acceptable to Christians, but he added that he did not agree with what his colleague was doing.
One frustrated passenger named Rebecca said: “I just thought it was disgusting. I would never say ‘I’m not getting on your bus because you believe in God and I don’t.’ He’s a bus driver, He’s going to come across all types of people. Does he think he has never had a gay person on his bus?”
Others support the driver for standing up for his beliefs. They felt that nobody should be forced to do anything that is against their religious beliefs.
A spokesman for First Group Bus Company would not disclose what action has been taken against the driver. “We are aware of the incident involving our driver. We have spoken with the driver in question and the matter has now been resolved,” the spokesman said. “We would like to apologies to any customers who were affected during this isolated incident,” he added.
