Bus Driver Refuses To Board Bus With Sign Reading “Some People Are Gay. Get Over It!”

A British bus driver refused to board his bus last week because it had an ad for UK gay-rights group Stonewall that said “Some People are Gay. Get Over It” emblazoned on its side.

The bigoted bloke—who showed up on time to take over his scheduled shift in South Yorkshire,—made passengers sit and wait 20 minutes until the next bus came along and he could switch places with a more open-minded driver, reports the Daily Mail.

“There were quite a few passengers arguing with him and several drivers as well, [said Rebecca Neill, 25. “Someone was shouting at him: ‘You can’t do that, it’s disgusting.’ Then another driver got on and explained what was going on. He apologised and said that the poster wasn’t acceptable to this Christian, but that he didn’t agree with what the guy was doing. ”

“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 sorts of people. Does he seriously think he has never had a gay person on his bus? I think it’s wrong that he can cause such a fuss while people are trying to go places.”

A representative for First Group buses said the company was aware of the incident and that it had spoken with the driver and resolved the issue, though it didn’t indicate whether any disciplinary action had been taken.

You have to wonder if this diehard Christian bus driver has also refused to board coaches with ads for casinos, R-rated movies, alcohol, banks that charge interest or any number of other things the Bible proscribes.

We’re gonna guess not.
