I don’t have to add anything else and I’ll bet you already know the driver is a Christian. (Are you really surprised?)
Passengers spent 20 minutes stranded on a bus after its driver refused to board because of a gay rights message on the side.
The unnamed driver would not get on the X78 from Rotherham to Sheffield because it bore a billboard for gay lobby group Stonewall, reading: ‘Some people are gay. Get over it!’
Passengers sat and waited while the driver argued loudly with colleagues and customers.
Stonewall information officer Louise Kelly said: ‘Passengers in Rotherham can rightly expect bus drivers to do the job they pay them to do — drive buses.
‘I just thought it was disgusting. 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?’
‘If they are unwilling to, perhaps they should look for another job.’
Being gay isn’t a choice, but being a bigot is.
It’s not the first time something like this has happened. Back in 2009, British bus driver Ron Heather refused to drive a bus because it featured an atheist ad on the side.
