Faithmouse Friday

The War on Christianity continues and Faithmouse is there.

Faithmouse - Bus Stopped

At least Rosa Parks was only told to sit in back of the bus. Today Christians are tossed off the bus just for reading the Bible! Our Founding Fathers are rolling in their graves.

Background:

A passenger on a Fort Worth bus says the T. Bus Service discriminated against her religion.

Christine Lutz says she was reading her Bible to her children when the bus driver asked her to stop or get off the bus.

Unbelievable.

  1. No. Please re-read the story.
    She was removed from the bus for reading the bible out loud. Not just reading the bible.

    IIRC, the rules posted banned behaviour on the bus which could be construed as disturbing other passengers. Reading anything out loud, and continuing to do so after having been asked to stop by the driver, construes a disturbance.

  2. “Reading anything out loud, and continuing to do so after having been asked to stop by the driver, construes a disturbance.”

    Unless that happens to be “On the Origin of Species”, of course.

  3. Listen to yourself, you unhinged moonbat! Reading the Bible on the Sabbath is not a disturbance. You’re barking mad if you believe that.

  4. Origin of Species would be more boring, but not as judgemental.

  5. Reading the bible to your children can only be a good thing. But society demands that we also respect the rights of those around us. If the reading disturbs those around us, then it is our responsibility to reserve such readings for more private settings, such as at home, or perhaps in a park or somewhere there is ample room for any not wanting to listen to move away. A bus is not such a place, you can’t simply walk away when you are on a moving bus, that’s when it becomes our responsibility to wait and respect the wishes of those around us.

  6. Listen to yourself, you unhinged moonbat! Reading the Bible on the Sabbath is not a disturbance. You’re barking mad if you believe that.

    So that means I can read anything I want, out loud on the bus, so long as it fits with a religious holiday? Like, say, Koran Fridays, or the Encyclopedia Britanica from Monday to friday?

    Please. If you’re asked to stop disturbing people, and you refuse, then it’s your own fault for the consequences.

  7. Well there we have it . . . the end of civilization as we know it.

    I had better give Billy O a call and offer to share some of my tasty middle-eastern treats if he will take up this womans cause.

    We need to have THOUSANDS of people reading MILLIONS of bibles all over Forth Worth-Less

  8. Rosa Parks intentionally created a disturbance when she took her famous bus trip and was removed as per the rules which were as follows-no black people on the front of the bus. It didn’t matter which black person sat on the front of the bus; they were all treated equally: NO NEGROES ON THE FRONT OF THE BUS!

    Public transport is paid for with tax dollars and belongs to that woman and her children as much as anyone else. This is the first time I’ve ever heard of bible reading to children potentially causing a bus driver to lose control of a bus, crash and burn. Show me another story detailing loudly conversing passengers and crying babies kicked off a Texas bus and I might believe this is more than just a case of an abusive theophobe with a government issued CDL.

  9. I don’t care if it’s reading the bible or discussing last nights football game, if the noise or talk bothered other passengers to the point they complained (its their bus too) then whoever it is should be told to stop and if they regfused, they should be removed, disturbing people is disturbing them, regardless of how you do it.

    If, however, her reading wasn’t disturbing other passengers, (the post doesn’t clarify that point one way or another)but it was only the driver that wanted her to stop, without recieving complaints from other passengers, then the driver is just an [meanie] with a grudge against christianity or something. He is paid to carry passengers, he is not paid to tell them what they can and cannot do as passengers unless their behavior constitutes a threat to the safety or well being of the other passengers. I don’t really see how reading anything to your children can fall into that category.

    Final analysis: If it bothered other riders, then she should stop out of respect for others. If it was just the driver, then he should be fired for discriminating against the woman’s religious beliefs. Personally, I’m inclined to think it was just the driver, and that there was likely other louder conversations that he ignored because it was the bible he didn’t like, not the talking.

  10. “NO NEGROES ON THE FRONT OF THE BUS! ”

    well, I will have to consult my bible if the children of Ham are allowed on the front of the bus. I seem to recall something about PUSHING the oxen cart and not riding in it….

  12. I assume you failed social studies, kid. Let me clarify something for you

    The first amendment protects freedom of speech, religion, etc. However, you are allowed to have freedom of beliefs with religion, not freedom to practice religion. Especially when it is disturbing others.

    There, I took your trolling seriously. Wet yourself with joy because next time, expect nothing more than “go back to /b/”. Good day.

    [Ed note: Curse that first amendment! I don’t care if separation of church and state is in place. I want to shove my relgion down other peoples throats and make them except it! Curse you, Uncle Sam!]

    The very definition of free speech is that it disturbs. The right not to hear someone else’s free speech-what cloud did that fall from?

    Do you work for Google China?

  15. Texas is just one of those monkey worshiping blue states. This is the kind of a treatment we Christians can expect at the hands of liberals.

  16. You know what is really sick, if this woman had a public lactation fetish and was breast feeding her kid, there would be plenty of liberal support for that. So one is trying to raise their kid right? Oh no!!! Can’t have that!!!

    Your beloved Lord Bush came from my state, you know. He used to run it. It was a red state last election. Kindly shut the hell up about things you know nothing about.

  19. Hey Marty McPain, the baby Jesus was a negro. What do you think about that?

  20. Hey Marty McPain, the baby Jesus was a negro. What do you think about that?

    You’re a disgusting racist for saying that. Jesus dad is God. Note the current tense sinners; Jesus still lives. Yes, He was dead but He rose again. Unlike Charles Darwin.

    How so? He just said someone was black; that’s not racist in the slightest

  22. Perhaps God is a negro also BJ. What do you think about that? What does race or color of skin matter? Are’nt all human beings Gods children? In the genetic and biblical sense, humanity started with Adam and Eve in Africa. I guess that makes us all negros. How do you feel about that BJ and Marty McPain?

  25. Lulz, you’re fine with editing the N-word, but fail to realize that “nigra” is actually an even worse term.

    Man, to see the looks on your faces when you eventually die, get up there, and get kicked down due to slandering the name of God. Oh, and let’s not forget being very un-Christian like. I thought you were supposed to love thy neighbor and treat them with respect? No? Well shoot, I guess no one really listened to that Jesus dude, especially the part where he rebelled against the idea of a massive organized religion, in particular one that valued material things and money. Troll harder, or I’ll introduce some lions.

  26. This is the fundamentalist’s last resort argument in cartoon form.

    “Despite all the facts opposing my view or actions, I believe that I am more holy than you are, and therefore my argument is supreme.”

    It proves nothing, but so many people use it and end up winning arguments. The fact is, even with the people who have near-death experiences, the stories of what happens next are all different, some float around, some go through a tunnel, others get dragged to other places, and some don’t experience anything.

    I don’t know what’s going to happen after I die, nor do I claim that I or anyone else does, but I’m not afraid of that prospect, because I know that, over the next 60 or so years I have left to live, I’ll have made an impact on the world. Even if I am being tortured for eternity in fire, I’ll still have my memories of the past, memories that no one can take from me.

    Maybe you’re right, maybe you’re wrong, I don’t know, but if the choice is between 70 years of freedom to make my own cohices in the world, or 70 years of strict adherence to the rules of an unseeable force that no one can prove, then I’ll take my chances and go with the first.

  27. Let me put this story in perspective for you. You are on a bus. It’s been a long day, you’re tired, and you just want to relax and take the bus home. Suddenly, a Hindu passenger starts reading the Ramayana aloud. You hear tales of divine retribution against evildoers, heroic acts, etc. But you’re not Hindu, and you don’t particularly want to hear about the Ramayana right now because you’re tired, and you just want to relax on the bus until it reaches your stop. You politely ask the other person to quiet down. He does not. You are perfectly within your rights to ask that this person either read quietly, or get off the bus.

    Replace the Ramayana with any religious text–even our own Sacred Scriptures–and the situation is still exactly the same. Not to mention that there are some Bible passages that should not be read publicly.
